With Android thoroughly dominating the mobile industry, picking the best Android smartphones is almost synonymous with choosing the best smartphones, period. But while Android phones have few real opponents on other platforms, internal competition is incredibly fierce.

From sleek devices that impress with premium design, to powerhouses brimming with features, to all-around great devices, and affordable phones that punch above their weight, the Android ecosystem is populated by a staggering variety of attractive phones.

But “greatness” is subjective, and sometimes spec sheets and feature lists are not enough to make an idea of how good a phone really is. In this roundup, we’re looking at the absolute best – the Android phones you can’t go wrong with.

Editor’s note: We will be updating this list regularly as new devices launch.
Update, May 2016: This month we removed the LG V10 and added the HTC 10 to our list.

Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge

Samsung did a killer job with their 2015 flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Design-wise, many would say those two phones were close to perfect. The company forwent a plastic design and instead included glass front and back panels with an aluminum frame. They weren’t without their flaws, though. The S6 and S6 Edge didn’t offer expandable storage or removable batteries — two features Samsung has been known to include in all its smartphones for years.

Now the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge have made their way to the masses, and they fix many of the problems the S6 line introduced last year. While they don’t offer removable batteries, Samsung included expandable storage on both handsets in case the 32 GB of on-board storage isn’t enough. Samsung mostly stuck to the same design this time around, though they did shrink down the camera bumps on the back and made the devices a little thicker to make room for larger batteries.

In terms of specs, these are top-of-the-line smartphones. They come with Quad HD Super AMOLED displays, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processors, 4 GB of RAM, great 12 MP rear-facing cameras and run the latest version of Android. Instead of featuring the same screen sizes this time around though, Samsung kept the S7 at a smaller 5.1 inches, while the S7 Edge has been bumped up to a larger 5.5-inch panel.

Seriously, these are some incredible smartphones. They are a little pricey, but all in all, we think the high asking price is worth it.

HTC 10

HTC needed a saving grace this year, and the 10 just may be it. The Taiwanese company finally designed a phone that’s different enough from its predecessor yet still sports a familiar design language. With an all-metal chassis, front-mounted fingerprint sensor and a new-and-improved speaker setup, the HTC 10 easily made its way to our best Android phones list. 

Under the hood, the 10 comes with some killer specs. A 5.2-inch Quad HD display, Snapdragon 820 processor and 4 GB of RAM are in line with most other flagships this year, and it also comes with expandable storage up to 200 GB and a 3000 mAh battery that will have no problems lasting an entire day on a single charge. HTC also improved the camera this time around, which was a big flaw in last year’s One M9 flagship. 

All in all, the HTC 10 is an awesome device. Great specs and a solid build quality are what you’ll get here… what more could you ask for?

Specs

  • 5.2-inch Super LCD5 display with 2560 x 1440 resolution, 565 ppi
  • 2.15 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor
  • 4 GB of RAM
  • 32/64 GB of on-board storage, microSD expansion up to 200 GB
  • 12 MP rear camera, 5 MP front camera
  • Non-removable 3000 mAh battery
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow
  • 145.9 x 71.9 x 9 mm, 161 g

LG G5

While the Galaxy S7 series is a minor refresh in terms of design, the LG G5 sees a massive departure from the design language used in the G series, ditching the rear volume/power setup that first debuted with the LG G2. The G5 also adopts a unibody metallic design that has a removable cap for access to the removable battery and a port for modules that allow users to expand the phone’s capabilities by adding a camera grip and other special accessories.

The distinctly different design of the LG G5 may not be for everyone, but there’s little denying that LG has went out of its way to try and innovate in a market where big changes like this aren’t all that common.

Spec wise, we’re looking at a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 with 4 GB RAM, a 5.3-inch display, and 32 GB storage with microSD for expansion. The specs here are certainly impressive all across the board. It’s also worth mentioning that LG has revamped its software, making it faster and less bloated. One controversial move with the software, however, is the removal of the app drawer in favor of what LG says is a “simplified experience.”

Specs

  • 5.3-inch IPS LCD display with 2560 x 1440 resolution, 554 ppi
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor
  • 4 GB of RAM
  • 32 GB of on-board storage, microSD expansion up to 200 GB
  • 16 and 8 MP dual rear cameras, 8 MP front camera
  • Removable 2800 mAh battery
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow
  • 149.4 x 73.9 x 7.7 mm, 159 g

Nexus 6P


As the successor to last year’s Motorola Nexus 6, Google recently unveiled the Huawei-made Nexus 6P. This device is the higher-end of the two Nexus phones announced at Google’s event, and that’s incredibly apparent when looking at the spec sheet.

It comes with a big 5.7-inch Quad HD AMOLED display, super fast Snapdragon 810 processor, a giant 3450 mAh battery and an impressive 12MP rear-facing camera. Want to get your hands on one? The Nexus 6P is pretty cheap, considering the specs and build quality. You can purchase it from the Google Store starting at just $499!

Specs

  • 5.7-inch AMOLED display with 1440 x 2560 resolution, 518 ppi
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor
  • 3 GB of RAM
  • 32/64/128 GB of on-board storage, no microSD card expansion
  • 12 MP rear-facing camera, 8 MP front-facing camera
  • Non-removable 3450 mAh battery
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow
  • 159.3 x 77.8 x 7.3 mm, 178 g

Samsung Galaxy Note 5


It’s hard denying that Samsung has always been the king of large-screened smartphones, and that still holds true today. With its crystal clear 5.7-inch display, powerful Exynos 7420 CPU and killer 16 MP rear-facing camera, the Galaxy Note 5 is one of the best Android phones available on the market right now.

It’s an all-around solid device, boasting an all-glass chassis that’s similar to that of the Galaxy S7. It comes with an improved S Pen and some great multitasking features that will make it easy to get work done. The software is much more clean and simple than we’ve seen from the company in the past, too.

With all of that said, though, this device doesn’t come without its caveats. Samsung’s decision to omit the microSD card slot and removable battery has been a controversial one over the past few weeks, especially among Samsung die-hards. Even with these notable omissions, the Note 5 can still be considered one of the best out there.

Specs

  • 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with 1440 x 2560 resolution, 518 ppi
  • Samsung Exynos 7420 processor
  • 4 GB of RAM
  • 32/64 GB of on-board storage, no microSD card expansion
  • 16 MP rear camera, 5 MP front camera
  • Non-removable 3000 mAh battery
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow
  • 153.2 x 76.1 x 7.6 mm, 171 g

Motorola Moto X Style (aka Pure Edition)


With the original Moto X, Motorola proved you don’t need to have the latest specs to get a great user experience. With the second generation, the Lenovo-owned company took no chances and double-downed on the spec side as well, packing the new Moto X (2014) with a dense 5.2-inch AMOLED screen, a beefy processor, and a capable 13MP camera. But with the Moto X Style, Motorola reaches the perfect balance between performance, simplicity, price and… well, style.

By Style we are mostly referring customization capabilities, a factor which has been an integral part of the Moto X experience since day one. Customers can use Moto Maker to manipulate their devices’ aesthetics to their will. You can change the color of the metal areas, engrave the back and even choose from a plethora of back options, including materials leather, wood, rubber and other materials.

The device is not a bad contender in terms of hardware, either. The larger screen puts the phone up with contenders like the OnePlus 2, Nexus 6, LG G4 and the Galaxy Note series. It may not sport the “best” processor in the market, but the Snapdragon 808 is pretty close to the 810, and Motorola has proven time and again they can make a super fast phone without the greatest chipset. The best part? This phone’s price will start at only $399!

It’s worth noting that the phone will be sold in most markets under the Style branding, though in the United States it will be sold as the Moto X Pure Edition, an unlocked model that will play nice with all U.S. carriers.

Specs

  • 5.7-inch IPS LCD display with 2560 x 1440 resolution, 520 ppi
  • 1.8 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor
  • 3 GB of RAM
  • 16/32/64 GB of on-board storage, microSD expansion up to 128 GB
  • 21 MP rear camera, 5 MP front camera
  • Non-removable 3000 mAh battery
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow
  • 153.9 x 76.2 x 11.06 mm, 179 g

    These phones are badass……guruscabal.com chose Note 4 as the best.

  • Technobro

    Ikr?? Android authority is just glorifying the name brands so that they get their new phones first. I was going to get the moto x, then I saw the Zenfone 2 (with Cyanogenmod) and now I am in love. Just $300 for 4 gb ram, 2.3 GHz Intel atom, and powervr 6430 graphics.

  • Paul

    What about phones with sub-5″ or even better, sub-4.5″ screens?

  • bigjohnsta

    LG G4 (minus fingerprint sensor).

  • Sabina S

    OnePlus 2…. I want one. I currently have the OPO and it’s super awesome. Fully loaded features for 1/2 the prize and double the storage.

  • What

    No Sony Z3+ o.0????

  • Carlos Fernandez

    Is there a problem against Samsung ? Someone forgot to add: fingerprint sensor, Gorilla Glass 4 , Mali T760MP4 … and more…. I think

  • Kunal Narang

    Best stock Android phone : Nexus 6P
    Best customizable phone : LG G5
    Best sound experience : LG V10
    Best value for money : One Plus X / Honor 5X
    Best overall phone : S7 Edge
    Take your pick.

    • CosmicFrost6

      hmmm, if you can get your hands on one, then the Xiaomi Mi5 trumps the Oneplus X and the Honor 5X.

      • Ethan Campbell

        Wait until you see the unreleased and unleaked Oneplus 3!

        • CosmicFrost6

          uuurrrggggg the screen is too big for me though. I’ll have to wait for the sucessor to the Oneplus X

          • Ethan Campbell

            Then what you need is a oneplus y. Or X2

          • CosmicFrost6

            sigh, do you know when they launch?

          • Ethan Campbell

            Nope.

      • T_X_P

        I have no doubt that’s true. As cheap as they are, Xiaomi phones are pretty well engineered. I have a Redmi Note 2 and a rather old Mi2s. Both still work well. The lack of LTE is an issue in some locations, obviously. But I’m fortunate to live in a city where T-Mobile’s 3G service includes an empty (and thus quite fast) AT&T band from their failed merger.

    • sadaqe2

      Best sound experience should be HTC 10, I had LG V10 and the sound wasn’t that great

    • 3165dwayne

      only stock Android phone: nexus 6p. there, its fixed

    • T_X_P

      As great as they are on paper — and as much as I want to root for the company — I strongly suggest avoiding OnePlus devices. Because the corner cutting and/or lack of quality control is glaring. My OPO basically spent its first 9 months doing a Windows ME impression (gradually self-destructing) until finally developing a microphone issue that made phone calls impossible. And my GF’s OPX didn’t make it 2 months before the bug-fest (reboots during phone calls, vanishing photos and texts, etc.) began ruining the user experience.

      Perhaps it’s just a double dose of bad luck. But I’m accustomed to “cheap” Chinese phones and the issues that often accompany them (my current arsenal contains Xiaomi, Lenovo, and other devices) and I’ve never experienced anything nearly as bad as this with the others. It appears that the company only cares that its products function long enough to receive positive reviews.

    galaxy s7 edge very good for multiple tasks with amazing result.

  • Barbara Stavrou

    V10 is so stunning

    • Krunal Urade

      That is because V10 is plastic build plus lack of AMOLED display and not so good low light camera

      • what!? the V10 has the best camera!!! (like the G4/G5) lol

      • Jake

        You do know that the LG V10 has stainless steel side rails? So the whole thing isn’t 100% plastic. I think the reason it was omitted from the list is due to it’s overheating issues.

    • dvdlgh

      All metal bodies are so frigging over rated.

    • An Li

      Agreed! Honestly like the v10 more than the g5. I thought the v10 resembled the g4 more than the g5 did.. G5 is quite a freakish phone imo.

  • Ryuto Arisato

    I like S7 edge or G5 is nice too.

  • Volca Lucia

    No love for Xperia Z5 series? :<

    • blahhaha

      Sony phones are trash, same damn design with huge ass bezels every time and they gave up on North America region so why giving them love?

    • An Li

      Sadly not enough love.. Plus, the z5 is already a cycle behind the ones listed here. Maybe except the moto x pure. But either way if the z5 takes a spot that means one the ones listed above would lose a spot. But that can’t happen because the ones above are just more popular and more people would get feisty. Whereas your comment in support of the z5 only has 2 likes. Harsh reality..

  • Syed Muntaha Manzoor

    So which 1 should i get…cuz i’m thinking of buying 1

    S7 edge hands down! Currently own 6 edge + best phone i ever had. Early upgrade on standby. Just think that right now dont wanna part with what I call
    THE GOLD ONE. had Lg phones B4 Im gonna stop beating them up, but I had two bad experiences with lg g4
    And Lg G2. I will never go near an Lg device unless my old lady has it btwn her legs. I WILL STOP HERE.
    I think Sammy just has the phone tech down and until Lg decides to scrap G series they will never get by Sam.Thier strategic modules was a good step but unfortunately there phone history is there, people just dont want their phones.

  • Dhwanish Joshi

    Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is hands down, the best android smartphone available at the moment. Snapdragon 820, 4 GB RAM, 3600 mAh battery, IP68 certification, and obviously the curved edge display are some of the excellent features that Samsung offers. 5.5 inches Super AMOLED display & Corning Gorilla Glass 4 are like cherries on the cake! :D

    • Krunal Urade

      You are from India dude you will get exynos variant LOL !

            sure grandpaa

          • Matt Wardle

            Actually apple have TSMC build MOST A9 processers, and the samsung variant (for whatever reason) is a bit less powerful and give 2 hrs less of battery.

          • Krunal Urade

            Agreed !

          • Jake

            Actually the Exynos 8890 is more energy efficient than the Snapdragon 820. It also offers a better gaming experience as it doesn’t heat up as quickly as the Snapdragon 820.

    Always the same sh—t,

    When samsung makes a new mobile, like now the s7 with 6.0.1, they don´t upgrade the older ones because sales. We don´t have to buy a new smarthfone only because of the new operation system, and also We pay hundreds of money to have a good smathfone to get rich these companies. I have a Note 4 and to me this is no an obsolete, only have 1 year and they still selling. It’s a shame how they treat costumers whith these upgrades. And now android Nutella (sh—t os name), is coming. They talk about upgrading ours mobiles before October 2015 and still waiting. And Now you came with this??? Operations system are adaptable, its no so dificult. Stop doing so many models people doesn´t like and then you don´t have so many upgrades to do. Why they don´t make a mobiles for dogs. Already now.

    Note 4 it was the last time I buy in samsung, because this always happens, I had s2, s3, s4 and now note 4, always the same. So many money in a few years. Mabe better buy a chinise white model for a few money each year and always have upgrade. the difrence of making photos or other thinks today is not so big. Desapointed 100%

    People there are many good phones on market whit best costumer support. Samsung have to learn. they are on top because our money. Try other companys because when they get the new model next year you will have the same problem. PS: older phones we can´t put the themes because they don´t change in the software.

    Bla, Bla, hundreds of blas….. and sorry my bad english rsrsrs ;)

    The android phone of the the ear i think is samsung galaxy S7 edge

    • NotEd

      As long as your ear thinks so! Lol.

  • Radek Rutkowski

    1. I would expect a few price categories for users that tend to drop phones a lot, hence not wanting to spend that much :).
    2. Aside from S7, all the others are bulky 5.7″ or so phones, which I would not buy even if everything else is perfect. 5.2″ is my max really…

  • Edmond Leung

    Thank you for the awesomeness, the contest, and generosity. :)

  • Hartfrid Lovejoy

    Nexus 6P is the best in the world, the S7 is the best in the galaxy

    • Steve Brain

      + range of phones.

    • Santiago Sepulveda

      AAAAYYYYYYYYYYYY

  • Jan Černý

    samsung galaxy s7 edge

  • Logan Danes

    Nexus 6P would still be my pick, mainly because of the screen-size, front-facing speakers, fingerprintscanner placement and not to forget STOCK ANDROID and FAST UPDATES. S7 Edge is an amazing phone as well, though.

  • AbbyZFresh

    The S7 is obviously the best but the S6 is still a very capable phone, especially the major battery and RAM improvements Marshamllow brought to it.

    • Apple&SamsungJunk

      S7 ain’t the best, only in your dreams, you need to open your eyes and see that there’s other better phones out there, simple as that.

  • Armaan Modi

    S7 Edge is the best.

  • Cal Rankin

    The polls don’t lie. S7 Edge and the Nexus 6P are the best.

    I like the vanilla Android so I favor the 6P, but the S7 is, for lack of a better term, bitchin’.

  • Bogdan

    s7 edge is purrfect

  • troysyx

    Galaxy S7 Edge; hands down! Before the phones were released and teased before that, i was really hoping that LG or HTC would do something special and really set themselves up for success. Sadly (but not TOO sadly), that didn’t happen. Samsung listened to their customers and brought to market a killer phone. There has never been the so called “Perfect phone” yet, but man does this thing come close. In my opinion, if the S7 Edge had front facing speakers and a IR Blaster, it WOULD be the perfect phone. But right now, it is definitely the phone to beat, and right now no one really comes close

  • Jeremy Shazeem Khan

    s7 never tried one
    A bit too pricey
    But If I get one I’ll be really happy

  • khalidalomary

    Nexus 6P :D

  • Bryant Robin Solon

    I am disappointed. NExus 6p should be top 1

  • Cloves

    You guys are out of your mind, HTC M10 is not on this list? Lol, Yeah lets all rally around this as Best android phones! Guess since you guys can’t get a referral link from amazon it won’t make the list.

  • Karan

    NEXUS 6P ANYDAY

    • Ethan Campbell

      Waterproof?

  • SIMONE LEE

    super fantastic phone good luck to all

  • If you were honest, you would have called this post “best android phones for the US Market” instead of best android phones. You have excluded Chinese phones like the Meizu Pro 5 which is as good or better than phones on your list – works in Canada on Bell, Rogers – also in most of Europe. Also, what about Huawei Mate 8. It works in the US – superior battery life to any of the phones you have listed as ‘best’. The LG phones are useless if you like long battery life.

  • SkypeName

    :)

  • Nour Gaser

    Excuse me, but where the fuck is the Mate 8?

  • Dexter Cruz

    Wow best ever giveaway for the year. Thanks for the opportunity. Good luck everyone.

  • Tony

    S7 Edge is the best I guess!

  • Sam B

    Go S7 Edge!! Go!! :D

  • AppleQueen

  • Daniel Martinez Colmenares

    where are the Xiaomi Mi5? i think with the snapdragon 820 should be in the list

  • Laraib Omer

  • keithbe

    Moto X Style – rocks for the price.

  • MANthrax

    I have no interests in the S7 edge. Seems easier to break with that glass edge. No removable batteries are killing me. I don’t want to have a worthless brick in 24 months. They are taking away the used phone market.

    • Aloof

      If one could resist being tempted by newer phones, I think a phone can last up to 3 years regardless of removable battery, if it isn’t dropped or drowned of course. Unless it is heavily used every single day.

  • km kari

    im a die hard xperia fan..but no doubt this time its Galaxy S7 Edge!

  • Thanks for the opportunity!
    And good luck to everyone!

  • Rahul DC

    Best Of Luck to everyone.

  • Prashant Borate

    there is no question which phone is best in today’s date. SG S7 Edge all the way. It will keep ruling the chart till next SG flaship (SG Note 6 :O) shows up.

  • Miroslava Bogdanović

    And I’ll have a good mobile phone, when I’m out random :-)

  • My 4 year old phone broke this week…if i win this ..it will be ultra-happiness for me .

  • Befuddling

    I like plain Android, plus expandibility – the Moto Style is niiice.

  • quenchy

    The Sony Z5 compact in the article says it it has 5.2 inch screen but in the specs it is stated to have 5.7 inches. Which is it?

  • Faheem Ahmed

    i never won any giveaway :(

  • Faizal Evans

    LG G5 was very new and innovative

  • TRCIII

    I’ve been a Samsung user since the very first Notes came out, faithfully upgrading every couple of years…but I’m done with them. I’ll be boycotting every new phone that doesn’t allow expandable storage and removable battery. I have a handful of fully-charged batteries I carry around with me everywhere, because THESE FRICKIN’ PHONES NEED THEM!!! They suck battery juice like a babe at mom’s teat, and I can’t make it through an entire day without the phone sitting in the charging dock the whole time I’m at work. Even then, I regularly wind up doing a battery swap if I stay out late in the evening.
    On the weekends, when it doesn’t spend the majority of the day in the charger? I can go through up to three fully-charged batteries in a day and be nearly drained again by bedtime.
    Also, I regularly have to “dump” my accumulated crap off of the phone, even though I’ve got 96 GB of on-board storage. (32 base + 64 expansion slot) I’ve been really anxious to get my hands on the nextGen phones that would take a 256 or 512 GB SD in the slot…but apparently that would have been too sensible. “You don’t need no stinkin’ storage; you’ve got ‘the cloud’.” Until you don’t have connectivity and want to listen to some tunes, read a book and reminisce over your photos from last year’s European vacation. Where is your precious ‘cloud’ then, eh Samsung?
    Soooo…I’m going to hold out and not upgrade for a while; but if I have to break down and admit defeat because the incessant junkware upgrades finally overpower my phone and make it crawl in submission, it looks like I’m stuck with the LG V10 until Samsung comes to its senses…if they ever do. I’m not optimistic.
    But I’ll miss my precision stylus. That feature was the bomb for a guy with stubby, imprecise fingertips like me.

  • Ayush

    Currently an S6 edge user,and the only thing I don’t like is the battery life. I would love to upgrade to a S7.

  • Aboodi Zoubi

    good luck for every one & I hope I win this time 😄

  • PatNdoji

    S7 edge is tye best overall in my opinion. B but one can not go wrong with the Nexus 6P, and is a phone i like atm

  • These lists of current top android phones are pretty boring because anyone who reads blogs like this already knows about these phones. Posts on the best new phones are more interesting or best battery life or some other feature. Just listing the big names that are currently on everyone’s mind is hardly informative.

  • Zulema Pontes Vidal

    Suerteee

  • Maja Stanic

    Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is the best.

  • ACB

    I hope to at least have one samsung Galaxy s7 edge which I think will make me truly satisfied. Having one of it all throughout my life, I think I can already give-up my wholesome life…

  • Edmond Leung

    Thank you for the awesomeness, the contest, and generosity. :)

  • Tal Macho Goren

    A little about me:
    Everyone knows I’m a Samsung enthusiast.
    The last phone by them I bought was the SIII. but for some reason (ever since the S IV) they started to be jerks (changing to waterproof and then changing back and don’t get me start talking about the SD card) .
    But finally, they changed it back and I can’t wait to have one of my own S7 EDGE (wink).

  • silent.twitching.moaning

    None of them uses 1080p resolution a.k.a the undeniable middle ground between great high performance screen X battery life. With most content still Full HD too. And if I wanna VISUALLY enjoy some content, I’ll use a tablet screen minimum (mine’s a compact 8.0″ Z3TC), not on phones. In fact, my dream phone would be in 720p resolution, Android OS, 5.0″-6.0″ screen, with Capacitive navigational buttons (Motorola, Sony, LG, HTC)

  • Marnelle Janse van Rensburg

    I just need someone’s help… I need to upgrade to a new phone but I don’t know which one to take. I want to try out something new for a change, I’ve had a Samsung before and it was fine for me but it wasn’t extraordinary. Now every person you see lately has a Samsung and I don’t want to be weird but I don’t want one at the moment, I want to try something else for a change. I don’t know much about other brands, so that’s why I need you guys help.
    I’m looking for a phone with great sound, good camera, lots of space + a memory card slot, good battery life, fast, durable in a way that if I drop it accidently I don’t want the screen to shatter… not too ugly and maybe not too expensive. Is there a phone that has all these things?
