The cheapest decent Android phones will cost from £100. These will phone running on Android can still be high quality, just with less power and storage. In recent times, many Android flagship smartphones come with 4GB of DDR4 RAM, equivalent to the RAM available on a normal laptop.

The many variations in screen size, processor power, software features and design makes finding the best Android phone for you extremely tough. high-powered, highly attractive and show stopping handsets, with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S9, HTC U12, LG G7, Huawei, and Sony Xperia XZ2.
Before buying an Android phone keep an eye on its screen size, battery life, camera, OS and performance such as processing power and storage.
Current sizes range from just under five inches to close to six inches for screen size, which can be quite large to hold in the hand.
Any phone with significantly more than 24 hours is considered very well. Many manufacturers will judge battery on “talk time”, but the phones will actually last days if left on standby.
Lower specification smartphones will have around 2GB of RAM, the memory space which makes the phone run more quickly, although better models will have closer to 4GB or better. Expect at least 32GB of storage, look for 64GB or more for a price.
Most smartphones will take great pictures and high-end models compete to offer the best cameras. Megapixels are not everything, but they can create shots with greater close-up details.
Look for models with the latest Android 8.0 operating system for the safest system, although some still come boxed with Android 7.1.
