Why Xiaomi, OnePlus and Pixel smartphones are all different
One cannot really decide on the best Android smartphone out there, because the definition changes every few weeks. And, the software has a huge bearing on the user experience
The sheer number of Android smartphones that you can choose from, whatever your budget may be, is truly mind boggling. What makes picking one even more difficult is the fact that each phone has a different personality. At the top of this tree is the Google Pixel XL and Pixel, running pure Android Nougat (7.0 or 7.1, if you prefer numbers) as well as the exclusive Assistant feature that is based on machine learning. Lending variety and purpose is the OnePlus 3T which packs in 6GB of RAM, which is perhaps more than what even your laptop or PC have right now. The LG G5 is all about the modular flexibility, and you can bolt on additional hardware (an audio converter, a second battery etc.) to improve usability. Even the more affordable Android phones around the Rs10,000 price point, such as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, now pack in specifications that will not leave you with a phone that stutters or struggles to run apps.
