Top 10 Best Smartphones In The Market Right Now

Update - 2018.12.21

Best Smartphones In The Market Right Now  It’s difficult to pick with confidence, the best smartphones in the market right now. And that’s only because of the differences between iOS and Android OS platforms — not to mention all the other choices to choose from (camera, gaming, bank-budget, and display size and resolution). Sometimes, taste is as inconsistent as Coke vs. Pepsi. You don’t know why you wish it — you just do it.

That said, there are some definite winners in each section — winners that, we think, boast the correct specs, design components, and features to satisfy the global buyers. We have a separate buying guide for smartphone shoppers on a budget, and we also have an article on the best mid-range smartphones, for folks not looking to spend a small fortune. If you want to know the Best Smartphones In The Market, have a look at the list below.
