iPhones are tops, but they're not for everyone. If you refuse to touch any device emblazoned with the words "designed by Apple in California" or just want to see what else is out there, we've handpicked some of the best iPhone alternatives.
Whether you want an Android smartphone with an amazing camera, want a better battery, or want to save some cash, we've got a recommendation for you.
The best iPhone alternatives if you want a killer camera
If you don't want an iPhone but still want a fantastic camera, HTC's U11 should be your first port of call. While HTC has had a mixed history with smartphone the photography, the U11 is currently the camera phone to beat if you're looking at Android.
The main reason we love the U11's camera is reliability. When reviewing the phone, we found it took the photo we were after 99% of the time, regardless of how challenging the lighting situation was. Whether you're shooting at day or at night, the U11 has the kind of camera where you don't need to take a second photo "just in case".
Our runner up for iPhone alternative with a great camera is Samsung's Galaxy S8. The S8's camera isn't too different to last year's S7, but it's still one of the best smartphone photography options around.
The best iPhone alternatives if you want a slick phone
Is aesthetic your main consideration when buying a smartphone? If the iPhone's lustre has worn thin, it's hard to go past Samsung's Galaxy S8.
Thanks to its "infinity display", the S8 is undeniably one of the slickest phones around right now. It's the closest we've seen anyone come to realising the science-fiction ideal of a smart slab of glass.
Our runner up for great looking smartphones is LG's G6. Much like the S8, the G6 has an extra-tall display which gives you more screen in a smaller package. The biggest difference is that while the S8 is curved, the G6 uses a flat display.
The best iPhone alternatives if you want to save money
Want a phone that looks like an iPhone that doesn’t cost a grand? Sure, you could go for the pintsized iPhone SE, but you could also check out OPPO's R11. OPPO's R11 is kind of like a slimmer and curvier iPhone 7 Plus - it even has two rear-facing cameras. Unsurprisingly, camera quality isn't on par with Apple's best, but the R11 punches above its weigh for a $649 phone.
Our runner up for budget devices is the Moto G5 Plus, which is even cheaper than the OPPO R11. Starting at $399 the G5 Plus is a zippy little phone with a good battery life and a solid aluminium build.
The best iPhone alternatives if you want a bigger battery
You know what they say about phones with big screens? Big batteries. Well, that's the case with Huawei's Mate 9, which packs a hefty 4,000mAh battery under its 5.9-inch screen. This should last for about two days under regular usage, and a 20 minute top-up (using the included fast-charger) will get you as much as another day of battery life.
If you want a big battery in a smaller package, we found that OPPO's R11 could also consistently deliver around two days of usage in-between charges.
