If the top 10 in the ranking of the best smartphones in 2018 was formed in appearance, the Galaxy Note 8 would enter among leaders. This phone offers you a futuristic frameless 6.3-inch AMOLED screen. The advantages of Galaxy Note 8 include waterproofing, extensible file storage, and wireless charging, as well as interesting ways to create animated GIF files.
It offers you powerful setup of a dual 12/12 MP camera. This is the first smartphone with two lenses produced by Samsung, and it can create beautiful portraits with a depth effect. However, despite the undeniable benefits of Note 8, it is expensive, especially when compared to the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. Throw away the stylus, and your key advantage over S8 Plus is the portrait mode (which Samsung calls Live Focus). In the Galaxy Note 8, the manufacturer reduced the battery size and capacity with 3500 mah (as was the note 7) to 3300 mah to leave more space inside the smartphone. Despite this, the battery life is quite decent, about 17 hours at full throttle. As for CPU and memory, they are all excellent, 64 GB for user data and another 6 GB for software respectively.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 praised for the excellent display, as well as for the convenient input with a stylus, this is one of the main features of the device. Experts especially noted the function of screen split, allowing to open simultaneously two applications.
Are you looking for an impressively innovative smartphone? The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s can be your best choice with no bezels. It does offer almost completely bezel-less design under an eye-catching design. this smartphone comes with powerful specs, IPS-screen 5.99 inch resolution 2160x1080 pixels, 64 GB constant and 6 GB of RAM, support two SIM cards, no memory card slot. Battery capacity is 3400 mAH.
3.5-mm audio is not here, so you have to use either wireless headphones or USB Type-C with the adapter.
The main camera is dual, with two modules of 12 MP (the main module of Sony IMX363). The additional module is used to shoot a photo with a bokeh effect and a double optical zoom. The front camera is located at the bottom of the front panel. It has a 5 MP resolution and will be used to unlock the smartphone by facial recognition.
The new flagship from Samsung follows the trend, which itself has spawned last year, namely the trend of unframed screens, bezel-less screens. Galaxy S9 + has an AMOLED display of 6.2 inches with 2960x1440 resolution. The Galaxy S9 Plus for the first time in the family S got a double main camera (although the dual camera can boast of last year's Samsung Galaxy Note 8). This is no surprise now, but the Galaxy S9 + still found something to surprise: not only that it has the best aperture of all smartphones, f/1.5 (which will make good shots in low light conditions), so it can be changed, although the variation. It has one f/2.4 aperture too (it is suitable for shooting in bright sunlight). The phone switch between two apertures to provide the best result depending on a condition of light. Both sensors of the main camera have a resolution of 12 MP, but the second sensor is a fixed aperture, which is f/2.4. One is a wide-angle sensor, the other one is a telephoto lens. In the camera for the first time, Samsung integrated its memory module that allows you to record video in Super Slo-Mo, that is 960 frames per second. It should be noted that for the first time such a function appeared at Sony, and iPhones capable of only 240 frames per second. The front camera has a 9 MP resolution.
In Galaxy Note 8, the fingerprint scanner was located on the same line with the cameras, so it was difficult to reach, now the cameras are located under the other, and underneath them-a fingerprint scanner, so you can reach it without problems. As we can see, Samsung, unlike Apple, using the fingerprint scanner, continues to provide the freedom of choice to smartphone users, leaving the fingerprint scanner in the possibility of unlocking with a scanner face, which works simultaneously with the scanner Iris. The sensor is located to the left of the speaker when working it lights up in red. Works unlocking and in the dark, the speed of work is quite large. For those who prefer this method of unlocking, the fingerprint scanner is not needed.
This is an innovative phone because of a beautiful design. This unframed 5.8-inch gadget is a new stage in the evolution of "iPhones". With the exception of the Home button and Touch ID, the new smartphone has all the features of the iPhone 8 Plus, including the fast A11 Bionic processor, wireless charging, and water resistance class IP67. The iPhone X also has a dual rear camera 12/12 MP, which is even slightly better than the excellent camera version 8 Plus. There are two models of iPhone X: with 64 GB or 256 GB of memory for user data. With this phone, Apple has a so-called system of cameras TrueDepth. This phone allows you to use the device unlock function by scanning the face ID of the user. This function completely replaces the Touch ID-fingerprint scanner.
The frameless display leaves no room for the physical buttons. Samsung simply made the buttons touch-sensitive. Apple, instead of following a good example, chose a not-too-convenient option: gesture control. As a result, it became impossible to use the phone with one hand in many situations.
For photographers, it has almost the same cameras as in the iPhone 8 Plus. Dual main on 12 MP and frontal on 7 MP. It comes with a better aperture from F/2.8 to F/2.4, introduced double stabilization and added portrait mode when taking pictures of a selfie. What about other features? It has a 5.8 inches screen (in fact less, because the black recess eats part of the screen space) with resolution 2436x1125 pixels, 64 GB constant and 3 GB of RAM, support for a single SIM card. This phone is powered by a 6-core processor Apple A11 Bionic. Comes under glass case material. As with other recent iPhones, there is no standard headphone jack, no memory card support and a second SIM card.
Huawei is a company that has to be aligned with many Chinese (and not only) manufacturers. It is confidently going to its goal and is not far off the time when Huawei will become a number of A-brands. The company has a lot of amazing devices, and to choose the best is very difficult. After much thought in the rating of the best smartphones in 2018, the ratio of price/quality came to Mate 10 Pro. Mobile price is high, the device is based on the innovative chipset Kirin 970. Why innovative? It comes with a separate cluster to work with artificial intelligence. The smartphone has got one of the best cameras for today, and it is not surprising, the lineup of Mate is distinguished by outstanding multimedia solutions.
With a huge 6-inch OLED display, a powerful processor, and a gorgeous dual camera, it is on the same line with market leaders like the iPhone X and Galaxy S9. Huawei added a screen button called Navigation Dock to help users with the one-handed operations. It can replace the navigation bar. On the back of the unit, you get a 12-megapixel sensor that takes pictures in color and a 20-megapixel sensor that shoots exclusively in black and white. Huawei Mate 10 Pro camera, even in low light, is able to produce bright, crisp photos with the minimal noise level. On the front panel, you get an 8-megapixel sensor that copes well with the capture of the face. There is a special "mode of Beauty", dressed in skin defects in the photo. The phone is equipped with the latest Huawei Kirin 970 processor with support for 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. Unlike the previous participants of the smartphone ranking in 2018, the Mate 10 Pro battery is more soaking, 4000mAh.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is one of best mid-range phone you can buy. While the leading manufacturers of smartphones try to conquer the market of bezel-less models, focusing on the flagship segment, Xiaomi follows this trend and in the budget segment, and Redmi Note 5 is one of best example you can get. The first thing to pay attention to in Redmi Note 5 is a huge IPS screen of 5.99 inches. A couple of years ago, a phone with such a screen would be a spade for a narrow circle of connoisseurs of similar models, but in the era of frameless smartphones, the increase in screen size almost did not affect the increase of the body. More, the resolution is also impressive, 2160x1080, while budget smartphones tend to offer a maximum resolution of 1920x1080. 5.99 inches, IPS FHD + (2160 x 1080 pixels), proportion 18:9, a pixel density of 403 PPI, contrast 1000:1, brightness 450 nits, and 84% NTSC, protective glass Corning Gorilla Glass 2.5 D, all this attract a lot.

The device works smoothly in everyday tasks, the camera in the daytime takes great photos. Portrait mode is also worthy of praise, the fingerprint scanner is lightning fast. At the same time, there are some drawbacks, the largest of them can be called video and photos in the dark time of day.
