    No iPhones here this year, this will be an Android exclusive list this time.

    For me, even though released late in 2017, I say the Pixel 2XL.

    You didn't include the G7? Or was the G6 a typo and meant to be the G7?

    Okay it's a tough call ...I voted ! Of course as others here we haven't used many of phones on the list but just from following daily overall across forums and reviews and thoughts around the community..

    Here's my thoughts-

    Note 9 is the upgrade that should've been from the Note 7 ...it's upped the battery game and still has one of the best displays you get on a smartphone.. there are more and more deals now for getting a good price on this phone that makes a quality buy ...

    OnePlus 6T - they continue to get great bang for the buck ..super fast smooth and reliable phone ...you won't be disappointed with this phone...handles all the task well and camera is improved ..


    Mate 20 Pro - unfortunately plenty of US members won't get to experience this phone it's truly a spec beast with what many are saying epic battery ...display copying looks of Samsung ..great camera ... really like what Huawei did with this phone ..

    No love for Moto this year? I know the Z3 is not a spec beast, but it's a darn good phone. And the Moto G6 might be a mid range phone but it's still one of best deals in the world as far as what you get for the money (the bang for your buck factor). I would put a G6 against half the phones on this list and say with confidence it runs as good if not better.

    I haven't heard of many phones on this list. Are they even available in the US?

    With that being said I voted for the Pixel 3. You just can't beat clean, smooth, stock Android.

    I'll add those phones. This why this is a nomination thread. I knew I would leave something out.

    I voted for the G7 because it is a great phone. Much better than the S9 or S9+. Specs are similar but the G7 has less bloat. The installed apps are really good. There are many paid apps I simply don't need with this phone that I needed on other phones. My wife had the S8 and it didn't impress me at all. To much bloat, to many useless apps. Same thing with the S9 and the plus.

    Second choice is the Note 9. Let's face it, it's a beast. It's the only Samsung phone that I would consider owning. They really hit it out of the park with it.

    Third choice is the Z3. I loved my Droid Z and the Z3 is all that plus. Great build quality, little to no bloat, and Motorola exclusive features like chop for light, twist for camera, and Talk to Me.

    But let's be honest, the Note is going to take it. It's that good of a phone.

    Bought 3 moto e5 plus this year for combined price less then any new flagship phone and it outlasts all of them on single charge.
