Upcoming or recent phones 2017:

LG Phoenix 3

Nothing particularly stands out in the Phoenix 3's specs list except for its 5-megapixel front camera (which is equipped with several features, such as selfie light) and thin 0.3-inch body -- both of which attempt to counter the potential disappointment brought by its 5-inch 854 x 480 display.

Sony Xperia L1

The Sony Xperia L1 suffers issues relating to its 5.5-inch 720p display (that lacks sharpness at 267DPI) and relatively-bulky exterior (weight and thickness-wise), which it hopes to make up for through the 13-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel wide-angle selfie sensor that it sports.

Alcatel A3

The Alcatel A3 does not impress much when it comes to its rather-small 2460mAh battery specs and 1.25GHz processor (which, by the way, is below the average across all phones as of this writing), but it does have the strength of having a few youth-oriented features like Face Mask and Face Show on its selfie cam (both of which offer live filters) and a fingerprint-activated Private Mode.

Alcatel U5

With basic specs like a quad-core 1.1GHz CPU, 1GB RAM, and an 854 x 480 display, the Alcatel U5 seems billed as a budget option for buyers who want to enjoy LTE and additional selfie options on their phones, all while minimizing other features.

LG K20 V

This smartphone doesn't have the best display (Its pixel density is an underwhelming 277DPI) around and its 31-hour usage time may be a bit lacking, but it does offer respectable camera specs in exchange -- banking on a 13-megapixel sensor for its main shooter and a selfie light-equipped 5-megapixel camera on the front.

Samsung Galaxy J7 V

This smartphone suffers from unimpressive camera specs (Its 8-megapixel main shooter and 5-megapixel selfie sensor are unimpressive in its market niche) and an underwhelming 268DPI screen, but its relatively-large 3300mAh battery and 2.2GHz CPU promise to deliver.

Samsung Galaxy S8

One of Samsung's flagships for 2017, the S8 spearheads the impending expected dominance of almost-bezel-less, curved smartphone screens with a 5.8-inch infinity display, which is joined by other top-tier specs like a 1440p-recording 8-megapixel selfie cam, an octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor, and Gorilla Glass 5 finishes at the front and back.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus

While it banks on its 6.2-inch infinity display the most to make waves, the Galaxy S8 Plus smartphone also features other amped-up specs like an 8-megapixel selfie shooter which can take 1440p videos (one of the first -- if not the first -- of its kind), VR support, and a Snapdragon 835 processor in its core.

Nokia 3310 2017

The 2017 version of the Nokia 3310, this nostalgia phone offers the basic call and text functions, as well as some extra specs like Bluetooth connectivity, a 2-megapixel camera, and a microSD card slot (The 3310 2017 can support up to 32GB of memory).

Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra

The XA1 Ultra places a lot of emphasis on its 16-megapixel and 23-megapixel front and back cameras, respectively, with which it aims to dominate the mid-range phone market (with the help of other specs like its 6-inch edge-to-edge 1080p display and up-to-2.3GHz Helio P20 CPU).

Micromax Bharat 2

With a specs set like a 512MB RAM, a 2-megapixel main camera and a 4-hour talk time, it is safe to say that the Micromax Bharat 2 is a basic phone that aims itself toward the masses.

Alcatel A30

The Alcatel A30 is an affordable phone that has an Amazon Prime version (which comes with many pre-installed Amazon apps) and a Verizon-locked version. The 5-inch smartphone offers an 8-megapixel rear camera, 2GB of RAM, and a manufacturer-claimed 15-hour talk time.

Oppo F3 Plus

Aside from the high-res selfie sensors (16-megapixel + wide-angle 8-megapixel) characteristic of Oppo front liners, this phablet also attempts to amp up its resume with specs like a 4000mAh battery, an octa-core processor, and a 4k video-recording 16-megapixel rear camera.

ZTE Blade A520

The ZTE Blade A520 points its edge toward the lower class with a specs list that includes a 1.25GHz quad-core processor, a 2400mAh battery, and a 13-megapixel rear camera that has a mode in which its parameters can be set manually.

LG G6

LG's 2017 version of the G-series, the LG G6 offers a 5.7-inch display, dual 13-megapixel rear cameras, and only a 64GB memory (Some versions come with only 32GB of memory), which falls below that of the average flagship phone, considering how many others offer more than 128GB.

Gionee A1 Plus

The main feature of the Gionee A1 Plus selfie-phablet is its 20-megapixel selfie camera and also included in its specs list are a 4550mAh battery, a 64GB memory, and an octa core processor that has a 2.5GHz + 1.4GHz clock rate.

Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4

The Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 positions itself as one of the lightest and thinnest highly-rugged smartphones there are, with a 9.7mm-thick, 172-gram body that boasts specs like an IP68 water and dust-proof rating and MIL-STD-810G certification against shock, vibrations, and extreme temperature.

Sony Xperia XZs

The XZs smartphone hopes to make a mark in the upper-mid-tier market by giving emphasis to specs such as its 960fps Super slow motion video-recording capability, 19-megapixel Motion Eye main sensor, 13-megapixel selfie shooter, and Full HD TRILUMINOS display

Sony Xperia XA1

Improving on 2016's XA smartphone, the XA1 remains to be a mid-ranger with camera and performance-focused specs, such as a 23-megapixel rear cam, an 8-megapixel front cam, and an octa-core 2.3GHz processor -- although its 720p display and 2300mAh battery evidently didn't receive as much love from Sony.

Alcatel A5 LED

The Alcatel A5 LED lights up its specs list with features like an LED back cover (a version with a PC cover is also available), a 3GB RAM, a 13-megapixel main camera, and an octa-core processor with a 1.5GHz processor speed.
