Gallery: Nine Android alternatives to the iPhone 7

​Nexus 6P

While it doesn't have outstanding features it's still an iPhone 7 competitor. The Nexus 6P is Google's very own Android device, and it's a smooth operator. It has a 12MP camera, which is just as good as the iPhone 7, and reviews of the device have been very favorable since launch.

It also has a stock installation of Android without any annoying third-party launchers.
