The Best Phablets 2018 And Large Smartphones


Phablets are eating out an increasing chunk of the smartphone market, whether you look at them as super-sized smartphones or undersized tablets. Especially since the inception of the iPhone 6 plus phablet, the idea for a large-display mobile is gaining traction and our list of 2018 phablets shows you all the latest models of these 5- to 6-inch smartphones.

It was Samsung that made the form factor a hit with its Galaxy Note line, but other manufacturers joined the phablet bandwagon. These days, all of the major Android smartphone manufacturers have phablet or large smartphone models in their lineups. Screen sizes vary from 5 inches to a little larger than 6 inches and we call anything higher a tablet.

Check out this list of the latest phablets (5-to-6 inch smartphones) to capture our attention.
