1. Samsung Galaxy S8 phone: full, in-depth review

Samsung shovels in the features (as usual) but at least the important ones are good... Very good. It's not cheap but it excels where it matters and that camera is outstanding. It's the best phone you can buy.

3. ​Huawei P10 Plus phone: Full, in-depth review

Huawei's phones have arguably been the most innovative in recent years. The P10 Plus is an impressive flagship with an outstanding camera and no real weak point (except for annoying low-light camera performance).

Xperia XZ Premium

5. Sony Xperia XZ Premium: Full, in-depth review

Sony's (big) new flagship has no real weak points. It's a crowded market but this is one of the best all-rounders. But there's virtually no 4K content available for the 4K screen.

8. LG V30+ Review: The videographer's smartphone arrives

The V-series has always been LG’s playground for the more ambitious fare left out of their more-mainstream flagship G-series - and all the better for it. The V30 continues that trend in good form.

RRP: $ 1,199.00

If all you care about is getting the best performance for the best price, then the OnePlus 5 is a hard bargain to pass up.

10. Nokia 8: Full, in-depth review

There’s so much more to like about the Nokia 8 than just the nostalgia factor. Solid specs, crisp cameras and fantastic form factor make it a comeback for the brand.
