Apple iPhone 8 Plus 64GB

79/100
The design is well and truly showing its age, but the iPhone 8 Plus is the most pragmatic device in the 2017 iPhone family. You'll get up to two days of battery, two great rear-facing cameras, lightning fast performance, and a stunning True Tone display; it's almost everything you could want from a new iPhone. We just wish it was a little smaller.

Features

  • 5.5 inch display
  • Apple iOS
  • 12MP camera
  • 64GB int. memory (useable capacity will be less)
  • Talk Time (3G): Up to 21 hours

Samsung Galaxy S8+

86/100
The Galaxy S8 Plus is the Android phone you want if you like big and tall smartphones. It has a massive 6.2-inch display that doesn’t make the actual dimensions of the device much bigger. Samsung’s trick was to rid its phone of the physical home button and surrounding bezel, and while that means it has an annoyingly placed rear, off-center fingerprint sensor, the amazing display, great camera and slick software should make you forget about this flaw and its Bixby voice assistant being a no-show on day one...

OPPO R11

80/100
OPPO's handsets might keep looking more and more like iPhones, but they also keep getting better and better. A couple of small issues don't detract from the value proposition made by the R11, and dual rear-facing cameras are the icing on the cake.

Apple iPhone 6s Plus 32GB

86/100
The iPhone 6s Plus has 3D Touch, iOS 9, a pair of improved cameras and the powerful A9 chipset, just like its smaller sibling. A long-lasting battery and optical image stabilization for its 12-megapixel rear camera help give the iPhone 6s Plus a slight edge over the regular 6s, although we wish it were a little easier to hold.
