The Google Pixel 8 offers great value for money. It features a striking 6.2-inch OLED “Actua Display” with a 2400 x 1080 resolution, up to 2,000 nits of brightness, and a variable refresh rate between 60 Hz and 120 Hz. Performance is fast with Android 14 working great on this phone. It also has a strong set of cameras with a main 50MP lens paired with a 12MP lens and a wide-angle camera with a 125.8-degree field of view. It also has a 10.5MP selfie camera with fixed focus. One of the best Android phones for the price, you’ll love its other features too. The Google Tensor G3 processor is fast while there are useful software options like the Magic Eraser tool that you’ve probably already heard about that is changing photos for the better. It also has an adaptive battery so depending on what you’re doing with it it’s possible to go up to 72 hours between charges.

The Google Pixel 8 Pro is something special, which is why we consider it one of the best phones right now. It has a larger display than the non-Pro variant with a 6.7-inch OLED display with 2992 x 1344 resolution. Its variable refresh rate is able to automatically adjust from 1Hz to 120Hz, so it draws less energy for its always-on display, proving useful for battery life. It’s also brighter, with a peak brightness of up to 2,400 nits. The camera includes a main, ultrawide and telephoto lens. It sports a main 50MP camera with f/1.68 aperture and 2x optical zoom while the 48MP ultrawide lens has af/1.95 aperture and the 48MP telephoto lens has af/2.8 aperture and 5x optical zoom. Performance is also better as the Tensor G3 gives you good power for anything you could possibly want to do. This is a very affordable premium phone.
