For as little as $229, you can get Motorola's latest Moto G5. Lenovo continues to deliver great phones without spending the big bucks and with no carrier commitments. With a large display and an aluminum backplate the G5 feels refined for the price, powered by 2GB or 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB NAND flash, both variations run the same Snapdragon 625 SoC, and the most interesting feature for some, pure Android 7.
The HTC U Ultra is the company's latest flagship, with a unique liquid-metal finish and a range of eye-catching finishes, the U Ultra is an attractive big phone. Packing well-rounded, powerful hardware and interesting features like a secondary notification panel and 24-bit audio (sans headphone jack), this phablet may be worthy of your consideration, though most reviewers are not keen about its premium pricing.
