    "By google smartphones, I think the topic is asking for the Android ones. In my opinion, Samsung is the best Android smartphone producers, and Galaxy S8 is the newest one. Although I am a fan of the Note series of Samsung, S8 is also perfect."

    "While the google Pixel is a good smartphone from Google, I am unable to determine if it is the best smartphone offering from Google. While the Pixel has good ratings and specifications for my needs, I cannot tell if there are more suitable options. "

    "The OnePlus 5 certainly does its job well - it's comparable to an iPhone in terms of hardware, and as far as software goes, it's ready to go right out of the box. There's very little bloatware and setup time is a breeze. There's no bells and whistles when it comes to extra accessories with this phone, but its speed and performance more than make up for it, especially for the price. "

    "I was in the market for a new smartphone. I hate phones that are bloated with pointless software and adware, so I bought a Google Pixel XL 2. I LOVE this phone! It's just a basic smartphone with no bloatware on it whatsoever. It has the most amazing camera ever and I use it frequently when on vacation to take photos of family and landscapes. It's beautiful and well worth the money. I HIGHLY, highly recommend this phone."

    "I've been coveting the Google Pixel XL for a while. For one, I really want to own a piece of Google hardware. Second, I love the XL screen on this puppy. Third, it just looks great! And this new, factory-sealed phone is a pretty good deal at under $600. "

    "I used to have all the Nexus before, except Nexus One back in the old days. All these devices have the same point that the quality is not good at all, just normal and far from the high-end devices from manufacturers such as Samsung, LG, Sony ... When these high end gadgets come to the metal or metal frame, the Nexus retains a boring build quality. Perhaps Google also recognizes that users are not just picking up their phones because of their features, but also because of their looks, so the new company, along with Huawei, has launched the Nexus 6P to completely change the way we think. Nexus. At first, I was impressed by the 6P aluminum unibody shoe. It's the kind of quality that we can feel at the HTC One, the iPhone and other full metal phones. Hold on to sure is the hand there, feeling great. This aluminum case creates a uniformity throughout the entire handset, combined with a fairly large size so it looks pretty cool. Looking closely at the borders or the interconnections between components, we see Huawei doing a lot of work. It's no exaggeration to say that this is one of the highest-end Android smartphones I have ever used."

    "I had the Sony Xperia X71 but I just wasn’t fully sold on it. I love my Samsung phones. This one does offer 5.2” display and a 19MP camera. It is also water resistant, but I am just too used to my Samsung to learn another phone"
