10. Google Pixel
The best phone for pure Android
Weight: 143g | Dimensions: 143.8 x 69.5 x 8.5mm | OS: Android 7.1 | Screen size: 5-inch | Resolution: 1080 x 1920 | CPU: Snapdragon 821 | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 32/128GB | Battery: 2770mAh | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 8MP
The Google Pixel is an excellent flagship phone that's an impressive debut for Google as a manufacturer - and the new Assistant is a great Siri rival. If you're OK with the price point, the Pixel is a breath of fresh Google air in a world of Android over-complication.
The 12MP camera on the back is one of the best on the market, while the clean, fresh Android Nougat interface is a joy to use.
There's heaps of power under the hood making it perfect for gaming and multi-tasking, while the bright, colorful screen provides an excellent viewing experience for your movies and TV shows.
It may not be the most attractive handset on the market but it's far from ugly... and what you can be sure of is a lot of bang for your buck.

- What's next? There's little information out at the moment regarding the Google Pixel 2, but we do expect it to pack the new Snapdragon 835 chipset (or a slight upgrade on it) when it emerges around October this year - and it looks like it'll be water resistant too.
Also consider: Like what you see, but need more screen real estate? You you'll want the Google Pixel XL - the 5.5-inch brother of the Pixel which boasts an eye-popping QHD (that's 2K) resolution.
