I'd go with the Honor 8.

Do you have any specific criteria?

Not really. Basic web browsing/email. Camera is pretty important. Not a heavy duty user

I'm pretty sure best camera would be the Honor 8.

I switched from the Nexus 5X to the Pixel 2, so far it's a great phone, battery holds all day.

Had to wait about 2 weeks from when I received it till I was able to use it as there was a problem with all screen protectors (Google send the wrong mold so all manufacturers and to redo them), even now I'm going to try #3 and the first 2 we're not good.

Where did you get it from? How much did you pay?

Moto G5 plus $170 with free headphones (32GB/2GB RAM version)
Anyone with experience if the 2GB RAM causes issues with performance?

Currently using the Essential phone. Paid under $200 through sprint promo. It unlocked after being active on sprint for 1 day and currently using it on T-Mobile.  Huge thread on SD about it if anyone is wondering.

Currently on the pixel 2 XL, came from the original pixel XL. Hands down the best smartphone I've ever used!
