Is this the best budget phone of 2018? Way too early to say. However, it certainly sets a high - or low - standard that every other vendor playing in the budget space will have to take into account as the year chugs along.

Even if it is the company’s sharpest iClone yet, the arrival of the iPhone X sometimes feels like it takes some of the wind out of the R11s’ sails. Still, as an alternative to the iPhone 8, the R11S is easy to recommend. The performance is good, the ...
The Blackberry KEYone Black Edition looks and feels identical to a new, original KEYone (save for the black, metal bands at the sides). However, the extra memory means that it won’t slow down.
As a product, the DeX works well enough. However, as a realisation of convergence, it’s held back by the hardware as much as it is the software.
The V-series has always been LG’s playground for the more ambitious fare left out of their more-mainstream flagship G-series - and all the better for it. The V30 continues that trend in good form and makes for a solid alternative unswayed by the Note...
If you’re not swayed by Samsung’s return to form, Apple’s ultra-expensive iPhone X or Google’s funky Pixel 2, then the Huawei Mate 10 Pro is a pretty solid alternative. Even if the pitch does poach a striking amount from HTC’s U11.
If you want a smartphone that’s as clean as they come and brilliantly-effective at the everyday problems it sets out to solve, the Pixel 2 is a clear-cut winner.
With the $499 price-tag in mind, there’s not a lot out there that can match the Huawei Nova 2i.

If you’re the kind of phablet power-user that this device is surely aimed towards appeasing - make no mistake - Samsung are back on track with the Note 8.
With the E4, Motorola are insisting that cheap doesn’t have to mean half-baked. For the $249 price-tag, you get all the features that count, and executed well to boot.
The Y5 is Huawei’s cheapest smartphone of the year, and it’s got the look, feel and performance to live up to that mantle.
This supercharged version of the LG G6 features extra RAM, extra onboard storage and comes bundled with premium earphones (built by audio brand B&O PLAY) to take full advantage of the 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC capabilities of the smartphone.
According to OnePlus, there’s no reason you can’t squeeze the prestige, polish and performance of an iPhone or Galaxy smartphone into a product with a better price-point. The OnePlus 5 is their strongest embodiment of this yet.
