There are new phones arriving all the time, especially when it comes to the world of Android. Apple's iPhones will always be popular but handsets running Google's mobile OS provide you with a wealth of choice - and usually much better specs for the same price.

2021 has already brought along some phenomenal handsets, with the Galaxy S21 and Xiaomi Mi 11 already among our favourites, and surprises like the phenomenal Realme GT - though we were surprised that it's a dud year for OnePlus flagships, with the OnePlus 9 series simply not good enough to crack our top 10 - though the mid-range Nord 2 did make the cut.

Here at Tech Advisor we independently test each phone thoroughly so we can bring you the very best options worth considering at any given moment. Here we rank the top ten but keep checking back as we update this list regularly.

Clicking through to our in-depth reviews will help, as we have detailed benchmarks, test photography and more for you to explore.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra - Best Android phone

  • Pros: Best camera around | Phenomenal display | Stylus support
  • Cons: Bulky | Expensive
  • $1199.99

After 2020's disappointing Galaxy S20 Ultra, Samsung has finally earned the name with a follow-up that delivers almost everything you could want from an Android flagship - admittedly at a price that only a few can afford, and in a form factor that will simply be too big for some.

The camera is now probably the best in any phone, with a 108Mp main shooter backed up by an ultrawide and two telephoto lenses at different zoom levels.

The expansive 6.8in display delivers both high WQHD+ resolution and adaptive refresh rate up to 120Hz, and with new S-pen stylus support it comfortably fills the productivity niche of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra too.

Oppo Find X3 Pro - Best display

  • Pros: Best screen around | Versatile camera | Unique design
  • Cons: No periscope zoom | Expensive
  • £1,099 (about $1,500)

The Oppo Find X3 Pro is a phenomenal phone by any measure. The 6.7in 10-bit 120Hz QHD+ panel is one of the best displays in any phone right now and Oppo backs it up with 65W wired and 30W wireless charging, a 4500mAh battery, and a top-tier camera that boasts 50Mp sensors on both the main and ultrawide lenses.

You’ll have to live without a periscopic zoom lens - the telephoto here is a measly 2x zoom - but Oppo instead includes a novel microlens camera capable of microscopic super-closeups. That's not the only oddity, as the design itself is utterly unique thanks to a seamlessly sloped camera module built right into the glass of the phone's body.

For pure performance the Find X3 Pro is also hard to beat, with all of the above plus a Snapdragon 888 chip, 512GB storage and 12GB RAM. You just have to be willing to pay the price, as it doesn't come cheap.
