The first one that comes to mind is the phone that has owned public imagination this year. Built like a workhorse and looking good too. The OnePlus 3 is quite literally the phone of the year and it would be a cardinal sin not to think of this amazing device when it comes to gifting options. The device has everything you want from a smartphone and more. OnePlus have listened very well to what people had to say about the OnePlus 2 and gone to work to make this one. This is one device that will not disappoint you in any department. If you are looking to gift a phone to someone who has to constantly toggle work and personal spaces and travels around a bit, the dash charge feature will be pretty handy too. The days of overnight charging are gone and all it takes is just around half an hour to get up and running with juice to get to work. Definitely our top recommendation for a gifting option. It is a no brainer!

LeEco Le 2

The LeEco Le 2 is another serious contender for the phone of the year! LeEco have a serious winner in this one. The phone has a very impressive set of hardware specifications and looks premium from end to end. The design language is absolutely refreshing. Just holding the device in your hand makes you feel very good about having the phone. LeEco’s eui skin on top of Android is also very stable and smooth. The experience that one gets from this phone is very clean and refreshing. The content offering that comes with this device as a value added feature from LeEco is one of it’s kind in the segment and we are yet to see anything to beat it. The video on demand platform is stocked full of interesting content and the latest OTA update has added premium content from Hungama music to the already impressive content that is there. So if you are looking to gift a superlative device that performs well and comes with endless content that can engage you for hours together, this is THE phone for you.

Lenovo Z2 Plus

The Lenovo Z2 Plus is a phone that has changed the whole flagship segment in a very big way. Lenovo has taken absolutely top of the line specifications, added a lot of thoughtful features that make the experience brilliant and priced at a point where all the top end flagships will have a run for their share. There are many things that are good about this device. It is easy to use with just one hand, Z2 Plus is armored with six professional mobile sensors, that along with the Sensor Processing Unit (SPU) of Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 track real-time data for health and other applications. It comes with the innovative U-Touch Button for the true one hand experience.Besides being a fingerprint sensor, U-Touch can perform 7 different tasks. And can be customized to launch your favorite apps. It also has a fast fingerprint sensor paired with a self-learning algorithm. It detects irregularities (skin peel, wound, dry skin, etc.) and adjusts accordingly. The Fingerprint module uses advanced CAC algorithm to unlock wet & oily fingers. Sound good? Given the fact that even the top end model costs less than 20k, it is an absolutely amazing gifting option.

So, these are the three best options for gifting this year if smartphones are in your wheelhouse as gifting options. These devices are the standouts of the year and given how far ahead into the year we are, it is going to be tough to beat these three phones there. So go ahead and get on a gifting spree!
