New/ Upcomming Smartphones 2017

 


Which Smartphone Is The Best Choice?

That depends on what you want to use your smartphone for

The functions that are most important for myself in a smartphone in 2016 are:internet/ social media, making a phone call and the alarm clock. I use Internet and social media on my phone mostly when I am traveling by train and at home where I have wifi.I have a prepaid phone so I don’t want to use the internet on the 3g/4g network too much. An other choice you have to make is between an android/ Apple/ windows phone and if you want a more expensive high end smartphone or if you are satisfied with a cheaper alternative that covers the basic functions.

#1 Smartphone 2017: Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

The Best Android Smartphone On The Market Today

In my opinion: the new Samsung S7 Edge is despite the iPhone 6 (plus) the best smartphone 2015. This has mostly to do with the price/quality. The Galaxy S7 Edge and the iPhone 6 are both awesome smartphones but the S7 Edge has a display on three sides and specs that Apple will have to match with the iPhone 7 to stay in the competition. It certainly is the best android smartphone with a very beautiful design, fast and reliable. The best smartphone you can buy at the moment.

 #1 Used/Contract Smartphone: Samsung Galaxy S5

The Galaxy S5 is a very, very good smartphone for a now ridiculously affordable price. The link goes to the Verizon contract Galaxy S5, but AT&T and Sprint are also available.


#2) Apple iPhone 6 16 GB

The Best Apple (iPhone) Smartphone 2016/2017

The iPhone 6 is an awesome smartphone and will be the best iPhone until the next iPhone is available. Unfortunately the iPhone is quite expensive while the basic model still has only 16GB, which is not much for the money. That is why the iPhone 6 is #2 in this list and not #1.

iPhone 6/ 6 Plus review and Specs

With the iPhone 6 Apple for the first time produced a smartphone with a ‘big’ screen. The 4.7 inch screen is considerably larger than previous iPhones, but thanks to the new design with rounded finished edges it feels comfortable in the hand. The screen is again beautiful, with high contrast and high brightness and thanks to the new Apple A8 chip the iPhone 6 is fast and has a good battery life.

The camera has been improved somewhat , especially in low light conditions. An other positive point is the new version of iOS, which provides Apple users and developers more choices and options.

If you can afford the iPhone 6 and you are an Apple enthusiast, then with the iPhone 6 you get one of the best smartphones currently available.

The iPhone 6 Plus has an even bigger screen, too big for my taste, which is difficult to handle with one hand. For people interested in the iPhone 6 Plus: here is the link to Amazon

Best HTC Smartphones

The HTC One M9

HTC is a very strong South Korean brand that is able to give competition with the HTC One M9 to the two big players in the smartphone market, Samsung Galaxy and Apple iPhone. The mobiles that HTC produced are high quality but a little less expensive than the latest Galaxy and iPhone series, making it a much appreciated alternative.
