2017 can be regarded as a year of signs and wonders in terms
of technology. With just few days to step out of the year, I will be sharing my
on view on best smartphones of the year.

Talking about the best, I am not just seating my conclusion
on the outside build of the phones, though, it’s one of the criteria. Criteria
includes the build, display, power and others, even inclusion of the quality of
audience and attention received from the world – yes, talking about marketing
here. So let the journey begin.

7. LG

This can be classified as BEST HANDSET FOR MUSIC LOVERS. The maker of this smartphone have
always been seen as second fiddle to Samsung by many, even though it has never
and for me I don’t wish so, for competition purpose. The LG V30 is a pure
beauty to behold. The launching of this phone pushed LG one of the best
smartphone makers for this year. The phone’s 6-inch OLED display almost reaches
the phone’s edges, what we call “bezel-less” and its design is among the best

The LG V30 sports a 6-inch 18:9 display with 1440×2880
pixels and support for HDR content, dual 13-megapixel camera setup on the back
with super wide angle lens on one of the sensors, 64 GB of storage (expandable
via microSD card), USB-C connector, 3000 mAh battery and no 3.5mm jack
It is IP68 waterproof and MIL-STD-810G compliant. The
smartphone is powered by the latest Qualcomm chip in the form of the Snapdragon
6. OnePlus

The Chinese company OnePlus made a pretty name for itself in
the smartphone market despite poor mainstream advertising in the U.S. and other
market.  OnePlus enter the fame of honour
after producing some impressive handsets, and yet selling them for in prices
that appears not profitable to the company.

OnePlus 5T can be regarded as the BEST SMARTPHONE FOR LOW
BUDGET. The smartphone comes with a 6.01-inch IPS Display and a resolution of
1080 x 2160 pixels, 18:9 ratio.
OnePlus 5T is powered by an Octa-core (4×2.45 GHz Kryo &
4×1.9 GHz Kryo), Qualcomm MSM8998 Snapdragon 835 processor which is supported
with 6GB / 8GB RAM (depends on the option selected) and internal storage of
64GB / 128GB built-in storage but cannot be expanded due to unavailability of
space for microSD.
As far as camera is concerned, the OnePlus 5T packs a Dual
20 MP + 16 MP rear camera and 16MP Front shooter for selfies. It runs on
Android 7.1.1 (Nougat). It can also take Portrait Mode photos with a blurred
background. The fingerprint scanner is on the back and the phone also supports
Face Unlock. It also has the 3.5mm headphone jack and Dash Charger, the
company’s quick charging solution, are still present on the 5T as well.

5. Pixel
2 XL

so you are in love with Stock Android, hate all those extra stuff manufacturers
and carriers add to the operating system, then this device is yours.

The Pixel 2 XL smartphone sports a 6.0-inch screen with a
1,440 x 2,880px resolution and a circular polarizer for improved sunlight
legibility. Always On Display is supported too.
Google decided to stick with single cameras on the front and
back. The main camera has OIS to aid its 12MP sensor and next gen image
processing. The front cam comes with 8MP sensor and f/2.4 aperture.
The new Pixel 2 XL is powered by the Qualcomm MSM8998
Snapdragon 835 coupled with 4GB of RAM and runs on Android 8.0 Oreo. Google
increased the storage, now 64GB is the base option (there’s a 128GB model
option). It has a 3,520mAh battery capacity for keeping the light on.
Pixel 2 XL features an eSIM inside them, which will be used
with Google Fi and other carriers. There’s a standard Nano-SIM slot for old
school (supporting both GSM and CDMA networks).
4. iPhone
8 Plus

Apple fans, this is for you. The Apple iPhone 8 Plus bring a
new design with glass on the front and back, the latest Apple A11 Bionic
six-core chipset, new cameras, louder stereo speakers and new durable glass.
Underneath the glass the 5.5-inch display is a new unit but of the same
resolution as the ones on the iPhone 7/7 Plus.

Customers still get 3D Touch, Cinema Wide Colour Gamut and
True Tone. The two phones are still water resistant as well.
The iPhone 8 Plus look the same as their predecessors only
instead of a glass front and aluminum sides and back, the new phones come with
a glass front and with a series 7000 aluminum frame in between. Apple boasts
that the glass is the most durable in any smartphone.

3. Samsung
Galaxy S8 Plus

Hate iPhones, then this is BEST SMARTPHONE FOR YOU.  The Galaxy S8 Plus smartphone is the greater
twin to the Galaxy S8.

2. Galaxy
Note 8

This is ultimately the BEST BIG-SCREEN SMARTPHONE. The heir
to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4/5 has finally been launched today – meet the
Galaxy Note8.

Traditionally, Notes have been more or less alike to the
Galaxy S-series flagship of the respective year, only with a bigger display and
an S-Pen. Not this one, though – with the Galaxy Note8 Samsung finally takes
the plunge into dual camera territory. And not just any dual camera – it’s the
best one there is, Samsung says. They might have a point, we theorize, looking
at the specs.

Body: Polished
aluminum frame, Gorilla Glass 5 front and back; IP68 certified for water and
dust resistance. Midnight Black, Orchid Grey, Deepsea Blue, Maple Gold color
6.3″ Super AMOLED ‘Infinity Display’, 2,960x1440px resolution, 18.5:9 (2.06:1)
aspect ratio, 522ppi; HDR 10 compliant (no Dolby Vision).
Rear camera: Primary 12MP, Type 1/2.55″
sensor, f/1.7 aperture, 26mm equiv. focal length; Secondary 12MP, Type
1/3.4″ sensor, f/2.4 aperture, 52mm equiv. focal length; dual pixel phase
detection autofocus and OIS on both; 2x zoom. 2160p/30fps video recording.
1. iPhone

They say the future is here with iPhone X. It is the most
premium of premium devices that cough out a price tag from $1,000 for unlocked
one. iPhone X is truly an incredible skill from Apple.

We have finally seen what the Generation X phone looks like
after several rumors. 10 years after the launch of the phone that redefined
what we know as “smartphone” today, the iPhone X (marked ten) has been
officially unveiled today. 10 years ago, most smartphone owners used keypads
but now touchscreen has taken over their fingers.
The iPhone X uses the company’s first AMOLED display on a
phone (after a couple of years of experience with the Apple Watch). The screen
panel is called Super Retina Display and measures 5.8″ big with 458ppi
pixel density (the sharpest iPhone yet, the resolution is 1,125 x 2,436px).
Both HDR10 and Dolby Vision are supported and the panel offers a whopping
million-to-one-contrast ratio (3D touch is still here).
The bezels that are so familiar to Apple buyers have melted
away, leading to an odd shoreline up north – the selfie camera, earpiece and
several new sensors live there. They enable FaceID, the replacement of TouchID
(there’s no fingerprint reader on the iPhone X at all!).
FaceID uses a flood illuminator (so it works in the dark)
and a projector that paints 30,000 points on your face (sounds similar to the
Kinect). The system is much more secure than TouchID, with a failure rate of
1,000,000 to 1 (fingerprints are good for 50,000:1). Apple warned that
identical twins will likely be able to fool it, though.
Also app support is easy – if it works with TouchID, it
works with FaceID. This includes Apple Pay, naturally! Note that Apple used 3D
masks to test the system and they didn’t work – to unlock the phone, you need
to pay attention to the phone.
