The Best Phablets 2018 And Large Smartphones


We define phablets as a smartphone having a large-display 6 inches or more.

These days, all of the major Android smartphone manufacturers have phablet or large smartphone models in their lineups. Screen sizes vary from 6-inch to 6.5, but anything 7-inch and higher is a tablet or a connected tablet (see our coverage of the best tablets at our sister site AlphaChooser.com).
