Google Pixel 2 XL 64GB

80/100
The Pixel 2 XL is one of the best Android phones you can buy, but it's not quite a homerun for Google. The amazing camera and performance are offset by potentially problematic screen issues and a design that pales in comparison to the competition. These aren't deal breakers, but they mean the Pixel 2 XL isn't quite the "go to" Android flagship Google wants it to be.

HTC U Ultra

70/100
If it were a third cheaper, the HTC U Ultra would be a compelling alternative to the upper echelon of flagship smartphones. But at an outright price of $1,199, the HTC U Ultra struggles to go toe-to-toe with this year's cream of the crop, especially given the lack of water-resistance and the bezel heavy design.

Features
