The overall winner is…
1st Samsung Galaxy S8
Price: $1,199 URL: samsung.com/au
T3 RATES: The Infinity Display is absolutely stunning, and the S8 looks like no other smartphone on the market; we also love the power at our fingertips and the strong camera.
T3 SLATES: The only issues with the S8 are some flakey biometrics – they’re great when they work, but it’s not every time; we’d have liked a slightly bigger battery too.
T3 SAYS: The Samsung Galaxy S8 is the best phone you can buy right now, packed with power and features, wrapped up in a stunning design. You have to pay for the privilege, but you won’t be let down.
2nd Huawei P10 Price: $899 URL: consumer.huawei.com/au
T3 RATES: Compact design for one-handed use; clever dual cameras; the cheapest phone here.
T3 SLATES: Small screen is only Full HD; battery life should be better than it is.
T3 SAYS: A superb flagship for those looking for a compact offering.
3rd LG G6 Price: $1,199 URL: lg.com/au
T3 RATES: Wide angle second camera is useful; premium metal build is striking.
T3 SLATES: Lacks a real standout feature to get excited about.
T3 SAYS: A big-screened flagship with enough power and a decent enough spec sheet – but you can do better.
