The drastic change from feature phones to smartphones has lead to some pretty exquisite designs. Thanks largely in part to Android, which has allowed a grand variety of devices to flourish. Android is of course, the operating system running nearly all the smartphones on this planet. Android phones are highly customisable and as such can be altered to suit your tastes and needs.
It’s not surprise then, that manufacturers have pushed the boundaries of design and given us some very good looking phones over the past half decade or more. Manufacturers like HTC and LG have been at the forefront of new innovation design. On that note, here are 5 most beautiful Android phones ever.
Google Pixel XL
Considered Google’s own iPhone – the Pixel XL will always be running the latest Android version owing to its special status. It’s a slick combination of glass on a metal body. The Pixel XL has a Snapdragon 821 chipset with 4 GB of RAM and 64/128 GB internal storage. The rear camera – a 12.3 MP shooter while the front is 8 MP, allows you to click beautiful pictures even in low light. It’s got a great, metal finish to its back, and is easily amongst the best phones to hold in your hand.
OnePlus 3T sticks to its Never Settle notion. The smartphone packs in the latest cutting edge hardware upgrades and better software enhancements. It is available in 64GB and 128 GB, and provides a 16MP front camera for high resolution selfie. The 3T offers larger 3400 mAh battery pack due to upgraded snapdragon processor. There’s a 5.5 inch Optic AMOLED display with 1080*1920 HD resolutions. The new Midnight Black edition is rather attractive – owing to its dark coatings maintaining the natural look and feel of metal.
HTC One M7
The first in line from the HTC One series – the M7 delivered shockingly aesthetically pleasing beauty and a gorgeous display. A curved back that snuck in comfortably in your hands, along with all flagship level features and specifications of its time, the HTC One M7 is a phone to remember. When compared to the larger, big phones from previous years, this smartphone will remain evidence of steady growth and innovation in smartphone design.
After the success of Galaxy S7, Samsung delivered the S8 Edge this year – feauturing a 5.7 inch super AMOLED 2160*3840 pixel display. It embraces a 16 MP rear camera and 8 MP selfie shooter. The phone comes with a 4200 mAh battery unit. It is a Water Resistant with Fingerprint Sensor. It’s a disappointment for dual sim users but offers the advantage of wireless charging.
What’s important though – is what Samsung calls the ‘Infinity Display’ – a display that bends on both sides of the phone to give a rather stunning look.
The HTC Legend is perhaps one of the most beautiful smartphones ever made. Built out of an premium finish single aluminium block, it does seem to be appropriately named. Unfortunately, it did not live a very long life since HTC discontinued it owing to a shortage of AMOLED screens. Android fanboys however, will never forget!
