Samsung Galaxy S8 seems to be the "reviewers choice" as top smartphone at present.

I have the Apple I phone SE, very nice phone. Fingerprint recognition, 12MP camera etc does for me

That's more or less the same price point as the iPhone 7 - a lot more than the SE.

I think it probably comes down to whether or not you like iOS or Android; I'm in the former camp. There are pluses and minuses to each system.

I had an iphone SE and returned it and got an iphone 6s because I found texting on that tiny keyboard almost impossible. No offense to anybody, but I find Android a piece of cake compared to ios. I suppose if I used it more I might find it a bit easier, but it is so drawn out compared to Android. I switched to iphone 3 times over the past couple of years, and went back to LG twice. I'm now tempted to sell my 6s and go back again. Even with using my ipad daily, I still find it just not user friendly.

One thing about the Galaxy 8 is you can switch the camera to manual mode.

At that price point there is no competition. All other suggested alternatives cost more.

I have just bought another mobile phone. I have been using a Nokia Lumia 925 Windows phone for the last couple of years but have been disappointed at the limited range of apps available. I refuse to pay the premium prices for iPhones or Galaxy so I finished up buying an Honor 9 (Android) which is made by Hauwei. I was little cautious at first but as I get used to it I am finding it an outstanding purchase. One issue I find is the camera is not that good in low light situations but I can work around that, but for half the cost of a Galaxy or iPhone is a steal.

The Hauwei phones are becoming well known here in Canada and the US in the past year, mainly due to a very active advertising campaign. They get a good name for reliability. They should re-name the company though.WinkGrin

Much of Canada's cell network is provided by Huawei equipment. They have been notorious for including spyware in their code, and have to have a third party review and approve all software before its allowed to be deployed under the direction of the Gov of Canada. Probably par for the course for Chinese companies.

I'm using the Galaxy S8+ having used the Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy S4 before that. The S4 and iPhone SE are very similar spec cameras, but from experience the S4 isn't too great at night, but then neither was the Galaxy Note 4, additionallyI wouldn't recommend someone buy an S4 now, a bit slow and has terrible Samsung bloatwear killing half the built in memory.
I kept my Galaxy S4 as a back up phone and now use it as a dedicated interface for my DJI Osmo, with very little else installed.
