Upcoming or recent phones 2017:

Samsung Galaxy S8 Active

This rugged-plus-flagship combo of a phone boasts an IP68 water- and dust-resistant rating, has been tested under MIL-STD-810G conditions, and enjoys the benefits of premium-level specs, like its 2.35GHz max clock speed, 577DPI Infinity display, and 4k-recording 12MP rear shooter.

BLU Grand Mini

There isn't anything grand about this Android phone's specs, seeing that its dual-core 1.3GHz processor, 512MB RAM, 5MP main camera, and 1500mAh battery are all indicative of a low-budget device through and through.


While this phone stays on the meek side as far as its 5MP selfie cam is concerned, it's definitely stepped up its game in specs like its 4GB RAM, IP67 water-resistant rating, and 5.2-inch 2560 x 1440 screen, which works hand-in-hand with an always-on secondary display on top.

HTC One X10

Of all this phone's specs, its clear that HTC's priority has been imaging specs (shown by the 16MP rear cam and the 8MP selfie cam) and the 3000mAh battery, considering that its 3GB RAM is relatively-low and that its Helio P10 processor runs at a maximum speed of only 1.8GHz.


The BLU R2 LTE has more specs to boast about than its being a 4G-capable phone -- like its 13MP rear camera, 13MP selfie sensor, and 3GB (maximum) RAM -- but it also had to do some downplaying with its 1.3GHz quad-core processor and thick 9.6mm body.

ZTE Blade Spark

The ZTE Blade Spark struggles to excel in the display specs and sleekness departments, having to struggle with a 267DPI screen and a 0.38-in body, but it proves to be a promising phone in terms of its 3140mAh battery and 13-megapixel rear-facing shooter.

ZTE Nubia M2 Play

The Nubia M2 Play has clearly given attention to its 3000mAh battery, 13-megapixel main camera, and RAM allotment of 3GB --- offering these promising specs by sacrificing a better secondary camera (The one it has only has 5 megapixels) and a higher sharpness in its 274DPI phablet-sized screen.

Huawei Y7

The Huawei Y7 may not have the best screen with its 267DPI display, nor the most robust of processors with its 1.4GHz (maximum) CPU, but it sports these specs alongside a reassuring 4000mAh battery and an 8-megapixel selfie camera, which makes it stand out from other smartphones in its market.


The BLU R2 smartphone's 1GB RAM, 8GB native storage, and thick 9.6mm body may not be at all attractive, but it offers other promising specs, such as an 8-megapixel selfie cam with its own LED flash, 3000mAh's worth of power, and an attractive aluminum finish.

BLU Tank Xtreme Pro

On top of its IP68 rating against water and dust, the BLU Tank Xtreme Pro smartphone also serves a pretty meaty 4300mAh battery on its specs platter, alongside a 5-megapixel selfie camera, 2GB of RAM, and a quad-core 1.5GHz processor.


The ZTE ZMAX Champ is an LTE-enabled smartphone that's designed to attract the basic market with a set of mostly-average specs -- with its most noteworthy feature being a 3080mAh battery that supplies 20 hours of talk time.

Motorola Moto Z2 Play

The Z2 Play improves the current modular-phone lineup from Motorola by shaving off some thickness and weight (It's only 5.99mm-thin and weighs 145 grams), but it also strives to impress by banking on specs like a 12-megapixel rear camera, an octa-core 2.2GHz CPU, and a maximum of 4GB of RAM.

LG Exalt LTE

Aside from LTE connectivity, this basic flip phone offers specs like a four-core 1.1GHz CPU, a 5-megapixel sensor, and a 3-inch 155DPI display to supplement features like dedicated keys, text-to-speech, and voice commands.

Motorola E4 Plus

This smartphone puts a plus on power (Its 5000mAh fuel tank easily trumps those from other models), sports a respectable 13MP main cam, and settles for unimpressive performance specs with 2GB of RAM and a 1.4GHz processor.

Coolpad Defiant

This Coolpad phone would've probably made a better impression had it improved its 854 x 480 display or its 2MP front-facing camera, but its performance specs and promising 16-hour talk time at least give it a bit of competitiveness.

BLU Studio Selfie 3

With an 8MP front sensor being its key selling point, this aluminum smartphone struggles to make a mark with anything else -- especially considering that its 2200mAh battery, 1GB RAM, and 32-bit processor aren't the best specs you can find in its subcategory.

OnePlus 5

The OnePlus 5, just like its predecessor, is a bold attempt to topple the dominance of the most-premium smartphones on the market -- having top-level hardware specs (8GB of RAM and a 2.45GHz processor) a 20-megapixel telephoto lens + 16-megapixel wide-angle lens rear camera setup, and a 3300mAh battery, although its 1080p screen is not as impressive.


The LTE-capable version of the original Grand X, this phone offers a slightly-better rear camera (which now stands at a resolution of 8 megapixels) and an amped-up 2400mAh battery -- but it still suffers through less-impressive memory specs like 1GB of RAM and 8GB of inbuilt memory.

Essential PH-1

Striving to be a market-mover, the Essential PH-1 banks on specs like a 5.71-inch edge-to-edge display and a dual 13-megapixel rear shooter to capture the hearts of the premium-phone market, but it has to struggle with a relatively-small 3040mAh battery, an awkward selfie camera placement, and the lack of memory-expansion options, as well.

FIGO Orion

The FIGO Orion may not be the best all-around budget smartphone out there (mainly due to unexciting specs like 1GB of RAM, a 1GHz clock speed, and a 2MP selfie cam), but it has done a solid job in defining itself to be a battery- and rear camera-focused Android, with its 3000mAh tank and 8MP main sensor.
