"The Lightning Network is allowing Bitcoin to finally fulfill the promise of P2P digital cash that can be transacted instantly for extremely low fees. While developers continue to add new features and make this protocol more robust, some are already making impressive software wallets that allow anyone to use Lightning’s features … NOW!
Bitrefill has curated a list of some of our favorite easy-to-use Lightning wallets created by our industry’s most innovative teams. This list is a great starting point for anyone new to the Lightning Network..."
On the latest version of Eclair Mobile for Testnet receive capability is enabled. They also introduced some smart features to track the state of the channels. This is one of the first wallets, it's good looking, it's not SPV or Neutrino but a full client with cloud backups.
Mainnet update is expected soon.
Read the whole announcement and more info below:

It is currently on testnet for Desktop OS and iOS. They are planning an Android beta as well.
The great thing about this wallet, besides being behind the actual lightning.engineering company (developer of LND) is that is can use neutrino so it is a new kind of light wallet.
UI is really great, it is quite heavy on CPU during initial synchronization and the bug fixing still continues but hopefully by the time it hits mainnet. It will be a great option for neutrino based Bitcoin Lightning wallets.
Breez wallet is a non custodial lightning wallet on Android.
It has a beautiful design and a few really cool features.
Connect to pay: you can share a link with someone and when they join you can pay directly via lightning.
Marketplace: it's an in-app browser that lets you pay lightning invoices directly inside the app. Currently it has only bitrefill but I got in touch with the dev team and they are looking to add more lapps.
Bluewallet is a Bitcoin and Lightning wallet for iOS and Android. It is the most user friendly Lightning wallet i have come across so far which will be important in the future for Bitcoin and Lightning adoption, because not everyone wants to run a node.
Features tested so far
On Chain Sending and Receiving
Lightning Wallet Refill
Lightning Sending and Receiveing
My only negative at the moment is that when refilling your lightning wallet it doesn't deduct the fee so if you want to send the whole contents of your BTC Bluewallet to Lightning you have to estimate the fee and deduct it before you send. This is no reason to not download and use Bluewallet so far i'm impressed.
Currently, I am using Lighting Bitcoin Wallet which is available at the Google Play.
I've already tested with success:
1. Onchain transactions.
2. Opening channels.
3. Sending funds.
4. Receiving funds
5. Restoring the wallet on a new mobile.
I'm impressed, how well the different functions of the wallet were documented by his creator Anton Kumaigorodskiy on its website.
