Don’t like Apple phones? Here are the top five iPhone alternatives

Every year it seems that a new Apple iPhone is released and it’s all we hear about! Every newspaper, magazine and website on the planet covers the launch. There’s no question, they are great devices, but what if they simply don’t float your boat?

Thankfully, there are many other great phones to discover, that will give you a wealth of capability along with the compatibility you desire! And with the ever more technically integrated home and uptake of wearables, this is worth considering for your investment!

So, if you want a great alternative to the iPhone X, what should you choose? We round up our top five picks.

1. Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 is well worth checking out, especially if you’re looking for a high end device! Boasting a 12 mega pixel camera, 6GB of RAM and an Exynos 8895 Octa chip set behind a 6.3 inch, Corning Gorilla glass screen running at 1440 x 2960 pixels. This has got a super stylish design with the power to boot! The bezel to bezel screen gives you even more space for video catch up and game time! You could even pull out the supplied stylus and get creative if you feel so inclined!

2. Google Pixel 2 XL

The Google Pixel 2 ticks all the boxes for us. The 6 inch display’s 1440 x 2880 resolution is crystal clear, whilst the 12 mega pixel camera is pristine for catching those perfect moments. The beautifully chic design tied in with the absolutely seamless integration with the Google application suite makes this a must try for us!

3. HTC U11

The HTC U11 features a 12 mega pixel camera, with 6GB of RAM alongside a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip set and octa-core CPU. The screen comes in a little smaller than some of the other devices listed here at 5.5 inches, but it makes up for this with its bolder array of colours. The device comes in a Sapphire Blue, Amazing Silver, Ice White, Solar Red, or Brilliant Black. The rear of the phone has a two-tone effect, which allows it to appear a different colour depending on how the user is holding it. Now, who needs an extra half inch of screen space when you can look that good!

4. LG V30

LG’s V30 handset features the clean cut styling we’re used to seeing from LG, which doesn’t disappoint. It also features a 6 inch screen, running at 1440 x 2880 pixels over a Snapdragon 835 chipset with 4GB of RAM. But where this one really stands up is in the camera department! Running an impressive 16 mega pixel camera, capturing 2160 pixels at 30 frames per second, or an impressive 120 frame per second at 720 pixels, this is sure to capture in minute detail those must remember YouTube moments!

5. OnePlus 5

Coming in at less than half the price of some of the devices on this list, the OnePlus 5 still boasts a spec not to be sniffed at! A Snapdragon 835 chip set, 8GB of RAM, 3300mAh Li-Po battery and a 16 mega pixel camera all make this handset worthy of your time! It doesn’t look quite as sleek as some of the others on this list; but, at this price, who can complain?
