Go buy one of each and take them home to compare. Personally I have always like Dal Tiles, but I am not a professional and it has been a while since I last did tiles.

They have large format tiles to, nowadays I like as few joints as possible.

This is your issue …
You are too vague

As you say there are many tiles … millions in fact

Seems though you are looking for more info on tile / tiling in general

I suggest your next step is to go to a tile dealer
Not a big box store … an actual tile shop

Talk to them
Have them educate you on your options
And other basic questions you seem not to be asking here

After all that …
Then come back here if you want help making choices say between Tiles A, B, and C

Just do what you want since you are the one that will be looking at it on a daily basis. And yes, as others have said, visit some actual tile showrooms.

We did white subway tiles because they were classic and timeless. Porcelain effect white tiles are “on trend” but in 10 years it will date your house. But if you like it, don’t let that stop you. We did black faucets and I’m sure in 10 years it will date our bathroom too.

Thanks. Is the following Dal glazed tile good for bathroom? I didn't find any other white for brightness.

Have you visited tile showrooms and compared what they have to offer vs the big box stores? If this is the best product that you have come across, then go for it… almost any tile will work. The key is to have a good installer.

I thought the "best" tiles to be rectified (machine ground to be perfectly straight and uniform size) porcelain tiles because they are easy to tile superthin grout lines and are waterproof (regular ceremic isn't waterproof if the glazing wears).

I just like plain pure white, never goes out of style, so this is what I boight for bathroom and shower walls (they aren't rectified):

All tiles are durable, it just has to be installed correctly.
