The coolest smartphones of 2018

Talk about cool smartphones. And what are these cool smartphones? In fact, we do not know the exact answers, because each person has his own notion of steepness. We only express our opinion. If you do not agree with us, there are comments under the article to express your opinion.

Motorola Moto Z2 Play 64GB

Smartphones Motorola, although we know, but still not very popular. Perhaps a matter of time, especially since the company has something to offer. Moto Z2 Play is an extremely interesting smartphone with several important features..

The first one is the thickness of the case. Before us is one of the thinnest smartphones on the market, its thickness is only 5.99 mm. True, this is not entirely true, because we are talking about the thickness of the case without the camera eye, which comes out of the case a few millimeters.

The second feature is the availability of plug-ins, which can be purchased separately. Just attached the module and it immediately worked. What modules are we talking about? For example, Hasselblad True Zoom will allow you to make a real camera with 10x zoom from the Moto Z2 Play!

And the rest is a very nice smartphone with decent features..

In general, that day Apple showed the new iPhone 8/8 Plus, but it didn’t cause much interest, since it represents a more advanced version of the iPhone 7/7 Plus. But model X is a completely new word.

The main feature is a frameless case. True, the small dark window at the top of the screen, where the sensors and the camera are hiding, confuses. The second feature, which some people call otherwise revolutionary, is Face ID – unlocking the device using face identification.
