2017 flagship smartphones

The flagship smartphone is the best, most powerful and sometimes the most expensive device of the manufacturer. Despite the fact that flagship smartphones are usually more expensive than other models, they are in high demand. Manufacturers, respectively, “stuff” them with as many functions as possible, powerful “hardware”, use expensive materials in decoration, etc..

In this review, the best flagships of the season of 2017 according to our site.

iPhone 7 Plus 32Gb

We will begin, of course, with one of the most popular smartphones on the Russian market. Yes, this is an iPhone, moreover, it will be about his latest version 7 Plus. Why did we choose exactly 7 Plus for review, and not just iPhone 7? It’s simple: this version is equipped with a larger and more popular 5.5-inch screen, and in addition, it has one cool feature – this is a dual main camera module, which the younger version of the iPhone 7 does not have.

The new generation of the iPhone received a new processor, a modified case, an excellent 12 MP camera, and high autonomy. At the same time, the flagship lost a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and the Home button became touch.

Samsung Galaxy S8

And yet he came out! Many users expected to see the device in the spirit of the infamous Galaxy Note 7, but the Korean company proposed a completely new, space-based smartphone design. It looks awesome and at least leaves no one indifferent. Just look at this curved display and the lack of frames … Even more surprised when you find out that experts were able to put a huge 5.8-display in a small case with a width of only 68 mm!
