This is 2018, looking back at the smartphone industry’s journey within the previous year gives us an idea about the drastic improvement of smartphone technology from high-end flagships to more budget-friendly ones. And the most important amongst these, are the near bezel-less display, 18:9 aspect ratio of display and the dual-lens camera setup. This important features are first offered only on flagships, then the competitive market took almost no time to adopt features like an 18:9 aspect ratio display and several others and make it available at affordable prices globally. Despite the cloning of these features, various flagships have managed to stand apart with their unique as well as revolutionary offerings.
Let’s take a look, which flagship phones from 2017 are the best among all the flagships and more or less revolutionised the smart phone market.
Samsung has been known to revolutionise designs with its ‘Galaxy’ flagships. In 2016, it was the ‘Edge’ show with the Galaxy S7 Edge. This year, Samsung built upon that design and unveiled the much appealing, and on many levels, a never-seen-before format with the Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus. The smartphones come with an edge-to-edge display, which Samsung termed as the ‘Infinity’ display. An Infinity display at the front and a glass cover at the back actually made the smartphones stand apart from whatever available in the market at the time. And it is not only the looks, as always, the Samsung Galaxy flagships got here with the highest horsepower available back then, with a Snapdragon 835 processor, latest Android version and more. The only one characteristic that Samsung skipped out on in its flagships at the time was a dual camera setup. Rest assured, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus still carry that charm with which they have been first unveiled to the world.
like LG’s real flagship mobile device of the year gets unveiled in the 2nd half of 2017. To that end, the LG V30+ packs all the best technology that the South Korean manufacturer can currently master and puts it into one single device. This latest iteration in the V series has it all – a sumptuous 6.0″ Full Vision (18:9 aspect ratio) OLED display, powerful Snapdragon 835 processor and the dual lens camera setup. It is the final aspect that will likely draw users to the V30+, with the 16 MP primary lens featuring a world mobile first f/1.6 aperture, according to LG. This is complemented by a handy 13 MP wide angle lens, along with a few modes to shoot better video.
OnePlus is known for creating ‘Flagship killer’ devices and this is still true to much extent. Being a relatively new company, the Chinese OEM has not been ready to offer as several services to its users because the prevailing players, just like the Samsung Pay or iCloud storage. however, one issue that the corporate has utterly managed to pull off, and rather marvellously so, is bringing an equivalent technology in its devices because the alternative flagships and at almost half the price across the world. a very recent example of this is the ‘Face Unlock’ feature on the OnePlus 5T, introduced right after Apple iPhone X’s Face ID. What’s more applaud-able is that we found the one on the OnePlus 5T to be quicker than the latter. such a lot thus for the big value distinction between the 2.
Agreed, the device seems to miss out on some things hidden to the attention, just like the recently surfaced reports of OnePlus smartphones missing the certification to play HD videos on some video streaming platforms. however, looking at the picture, there’s no chance that the smartphone experience on the OnePlus devices will be considered substandard, because of their top of the line specifications. And after all, we can’t really miss mentioning the Dash Charging here.
Samsung had all of focus upon their Galaxy Note 8 launch as the enterprise struggles to put an end to the scepticism faced by it after the Galaxy Note 7 disaster. And the South Korean giant did amazingly well indeed. Samsung’s flagship for 2017 had the whole lot going to without problems rank it as the quality flagship smartphone of the year. A large, close to the bezel-less display, top of the line specifications and a dual camera setup which was once missing from its previous flagship offerings, the Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus. In addition, Samsung totally redesigned its S-Pen functionality with the Galaxy Note 8, now making it capable of creating live messages, animations, GIFs, translations, texts inside images, notes on the lock screen and what not. As a first, the Galaxy Note 8 additionally got here with dual OIS on its dual-lens camera setup at the back.
Apple celebrated their ten-year anniversary of its iPhone line-up with surprise, a whole new iPhone. Along with the normal collection additions – iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, Apple delivered a special Tenth-Anniversary Edition iPhone as the iPhone X. There is no doubt that the Cupertino tech company went all out for this, introducing a bezel-less display for the first time alongside with an all-new A11 bionic chip for powering it and as a highlight – a Face ID technology to do away with fingerprint sensors and other security features. In addition, the iPhone X additionally boasted of wireless charging support, an all glass covers at both the front and the back as nicely as augmented reality support.
To add a little bit of fun to the class, Apple additionally unveiled Animoji – animated emoticons wherein the smartphone’s TrueDepth digital camera captures and analyses over 50 distinctive facial muscle movements, then animates those expressions in a dozen different Animojis, together with that of a panda, unicorn and robot.
