Upcoming or recent phones 2017:

Plum Phantom

The Plum Phantom doesn't seem to give much priority to performance specs (given that its 1.3GHz processor and 1GB RAM are both not that impressive), but its 13-megapixel rear camera and 8-megapixel selfie cam make it look a bit more convincing as a budget phablet.

ZTE Blade Vantage

The ZTE Blade Vantage is a 5-inch smartphone that squeezes a 256GB memory card support (16GB native storage), an 8-megapixel camera, and a 2500mAh battery into its low-end bundle of specs.

Google Pixel 2

The water-tight Google Pixel 2 is a Daydream-capable (VR) smartphone that supports specs like the Active Edge squeeze feature and a 4K-video 12.2-megapixel f/1.8 camera with a 2.35GHz + 1.9GHz octa-core engine and a 4GB LPDDR4x RAM.

iPhone X

Its 7-megapixel TrueDepth selfie camera, new Face ID function, and glass-and-stainless steel finish all give the iPhone X a fresh outlook on the smartphone scene, but for this most premium Apple installment of 2017, display specs are king -- as evident on its 5.8-inch all-screen OLED display.

Google Pixel 2 XL

The Google Pixel 2 XL is a flagship phablet whose specs include a 6-inch 18:9 QHD+ (1440p) Always On pOLED interface, the Active Edge device-squeezing function, and a 2.35GHz + 1.9GHz eight-core engine coupled with 4GB of RAM.

Motorola Moto X4

The Moto X4 is a camera smartphone that supports its high-tier dual rear cameras (12- and 8-megapixel cams) as well as 16-megapixel selfie cam with equality-advanced hardware specs, including 2.2GHz eight-core CPU and a 32GB storage expandable by up to 2TB.

ZTE Tempo X

ZTE's relatively-cheap Tempo X smartphone keeps it mellow, with a 2200mAh battery (882-minute talk time), a low-end 5-inch 480p display, and a built-in Mexico roaming capability among its specs

Vivo V7 Plus

The V7+ is a high-ranking phablet for Vivo's selfie-focused clientele, featuring a 24-megapixel selfie camera, a 5.99-inch 18:9 FullView screen with 2.15mm-thin bezels, and a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera as its highlight specs.

Lenovo K8 Plus

This 5.2-inch Plus smartphone under Lenovo's K-series comes with several flagship-caliber specs, including a VR-capable 5.2-inch FHD display, a 13-megapixel + 5-megapixel rear camera setup, and a 2.5GHz eight-core CPU.

iPhone 8

The iPhone 8 may be the least innovative among Apple's 2017 smartphone array, but it still boasts a revamped glass exterior, improved performance specs (courtesy of a new A11 Bionic processor), enhanced display color accuracy and gamut (albeit having the exact same resolution as the iPhone 7), and the ability to record slow-motion clips at 240fps.

iPhone 8 Plus

The iPhone 8 Plus charges into the flagship battle with specs like dual 12-megapixel 4K-video-capable cameras, a 5.5-inch FHD screen with the True Tone and 3D Touch technologies, and the A11 Bionic chip aided by a neural engine in its arsenal.

Sony Xperia XA1 Plus

This Plus variant of Sony's XA1 phone brings back its mother model's 23-megapixel camera and 2.3GHz (max clock speed) octa-core engine, but adds a couple more high-end specs, which include a 3430mAh battery and a 4GB RAM.

Cat S31

Cat's S31 rugged phone calls out to users who are always in the outdoors, offering specs like a waterproof, dust-tight, and drop-ready casing (IP68 and MIL-SPEC 810G rugged ratings) alongside a 4000mAh battery pack.

Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact

The XZ1 Compact smartphone manages to keep the XZ1's flagship-class specs, including its 19-megapixel rear cam (with a 960fps slow-motion video feature) and 3D Creator app, despite dropping to a 4.6-inch 720p display.

Meizu M6

The Meizu M6 delivers a bevy of middle-class smartphone specs, including a 1.5GHz eight-core processor with 3GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear-facing dual-tone-flash camera, and an 8-megapixel front-facing selfie cam.

Meizu M6 Note

Meizu's M6 Note is a 5.5-inch camera smartphone whose biggest specs include a 12-megapixel + 5-megapixel dual-lens rear camera with a quad-LED dual-color flash, a high-ranking 16-megapixel selfie shooter, and 4000mAh of power.


BLU's S1 is a middle-of-the-road 2017 Android phone whose specs include an eight-core CPU clocked at 1.5GHz, fingerprint user recognition, and up-to-300Mbps 4G LTE connectivity.

Asus Zenfone 4 Max Pro

The Zenfone 4 Max Pro is a high-end smartphone calling out to power-cautious digital photographers, with dual rear cameras (16- and 5-megapixel cams), a 5000mAh battery, and a 16-megapixel selfie shooter leading its specs.

Oppo A71

Oppo's 5.2-inch A71 is an overall mid-tier smartphone equipped with a few high-end specs, including a 1.5GHz eight-core engine with 3GB of RAM, a 3000mAh battery, and a 13-megapixel primary camera.

Asus Zenfone 4 Max ZC520KL

The Zenfone 4 Max (model ZC520KL) features some sure-fire high-end smartphone specs like a 4100mAh PowerMaster-equipped battery and a dual-lens rear camera (13- and 5-megapixel cams), but it settles for a measly quad-core 1.4GHz processor.
