Top 10 smartphones from the last 10 months – current reviews are listed first

1st

Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017)
Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017)

The Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) has a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED screen with a decent resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. You also get an octa-core SoC from Samsung, 3 GB of RAM as well as 32 GB of flash storage, which can be expanded via a microSD card. We also like the protection against dust and water, so an accidental bath is no problem.

We primarily liked the great display and long battery runtimes during our review. The cameras are also decent and you get a modern USB Type-C connector. It is unfortunately limited to the USB 2.0 standard and does not support OTG. The system performance could be a bit higher.

The Galaxy A5 was originally shipped with Android 6.0, but got the Android 7.0 update this summer. Another update to Android 8.0 Oreo is likely.

2nd

Lenovo P2
Lenovo P2

If a smartphone deserves the label price-performance sensation, then it is probably Lenovo's P2. It is powered by a mid-range Snapdragon 625 SoC and offers a generous 4 GB of working memory and 32 GB of flash memory. The latter can be extended via a microSD card. The 5.5-inch AMOLED panel has the high Full HD resolution, and the buyer gets a strong 5100 mAh battery that ensures an outstanding battery life as the icing on the cake.

In view of the low price, some minor concessions have to be made. The microphones did not function perfectly in our test and the camera's low-light photo quality was only mediocre.

Google's Android 7.0 Nougat is now available for Lenovo's P2.

3rd

BQ Aquaris X Pro
BQ Aquaris X Pro

The BQ Aquaris X Pro is the current flagship device from the Spanish manufacturer. It is powerful enough (upper mainstream), thanks to the Snapdragon 626 in combination with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of flash storage, which can be expanded via a microSD card. However, the highlight of the smartphone is the camera, which uses the sensor from Samsung's flagship smartphones and takes really good pictures.

We liked the fast communication modules, the fingerprint scanner as well as quick-charge during our review. The location performance is also very accurate and you get long battery runtimes. The display is bright, but the color accuracy could be better. The OS is up to date with vanilla Android 7.1 Nougat, and the manufacturer has already confirmed an update to Oreo.

4th

BQ Aquaris X5 Plus
BQ Aquaris X5 Plus

The BQ Aquaris X5 Plus is a great bundle for a fair price. As well as a cutting-edge mid-range SoC from Qualcomm, it features 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of eMMC storage. It is easy to expand the storage space with a microSD card, which can also be configured as an additional internal storage. Besides a decent camera, the user will get dual-SIM functionality and a fingerprint reader. Although the display shines very brightly, the contrast ratio is only mediocre due to a relatively high black value.

You have to accept minor cuts in the low-light capabilities of the camera. The Spanish manufacturer plans an update to Android 7.0 Nougat in the first quarter of 2017.

5th

Huawei P10 Lite
Huawei P10 Lite

Huawei's P10 Lite has a 5.2-inch screen with a Full HD resolution. HiSilicon's Kirin 658 powers it, and it uses 4 GB of working memory. The 32 GB of internal storage can be extended via an optional microSD card. LTE Cat.6, ac Wi-Fi, NFC, and a hybrid dual-SIM slot are also present. The battery life proved to be quite decent in the test and the cameras also made a good impression.

It is too bad that apps cannot be moved to the microSD card and the user has to decide whether to expand the storage or insert a second SIM card. Furthermore, the firmware needs a lot of storage with 12 GB.

6th

Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017)
Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017)

The third generation of the Samsung Galaxy A3 brings several notable improvements. The camera lens is flush with the case now, a USB Type-C port is available, and the smartphone is protected against dust and water according to IP68. It uses a fast SoC, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. The storage capacity can be expanded with a microSD card. Cameras and battery runtimes are also really good. The display has a diagonal of 4.7 inches and uses Samsung's Super AMOLED technology. Its resolution of 1280x720 pixels is good and the display can get very bright.

Motorola Moto G5s Plus
Motorola Moto G5s Plus

Lenovo's Motorola Moto G5s Plus is a quick successor to the Moto G5 Plus. The most noticeable difference is the camera upgrade, but the other specifications are identical. You get a 5.2-inch IPS screen with the 1080p resolution. It is also equipped with a mainstream SoC, 3 GB of RAM as well as 32 GB of internal storage.

The dual-camera performs well in our review and takes nice pictures. We also liked the high quality of the aluminum case as well as the long battery runtimes. Only the location performance could be better.

8th

Huawei Nova 2
Huawei Nova 2

The Huawei Nova 2 Smartphone features a 5-inch 1080p display, 4 GB of RAM as well as 64 GB of internal storage. The highlight of the device is the 20 MP front camera, which is primarily designed for selfie fans. However, our review showed more pixels are not always better and the front camera is not much better than the rivals. Huawei still offers a good mainstream device, which convinces with many features and it is also the first device from the Chinese manufacturer with support for aptX audio via Bluetooth. The battery runtimes are also very good.

Pricecompare

9th

Huawei Mate 10 Lite
Huawei Mate 10 Lite

The Huawei Mate 10 Lite has very little in common with the Mate 10 series on paper, only the 5.9-inch IPS display (18:9) shows some resemblance. Otherwise, it is actually similar to the Nova 2 with specifications like the Kirin SoC, 4 GB of RAM as well as 64 GB of eMMC storage. It is also possible to expand the storage via a microSD card. Both sides get a dual-camera, which take decent pictures.

We also liked the excellent system performance of the Mate 10 Lite as well as the accurate location performance. The GPU performance on the other hand has problems with the high resolution and can be the limiting factor in some games, where you might have to reduce some details. NFC is also missing and the WLAN chip supports only 2.4 GHz networks, so the performance is comparatively low.

Pricecompare

10th

Sony Xperia XA1
Sony Xperia XA1

The Sony Xperia XA1 is a mid-range smartphone with 5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280x720 pixels. It is powered by a MediaTek Helio P20 SoC and features large memory capacities with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. In addition, the storage capacity can be expanded by up to 256 GB with a microSD card.

Among others, its stylish, stable case, precise GPS, and good voice quality convinced us in our test. The lack of a fingerprint sensor and a compatible, fast charging adapter are unfortunate. Sony offers the latter only optionally for a steep price.
