Agree with Victor, about the Samsung Galaxy A8 and A8+ both are perfect illustration. All the tech is there already, we just need to make it cheaper, better, more attainable and universally beneficial. My opinion is that A8 design just looks more convenient choice which is an alternative to unusual bezelless curved profiles that is prone to accidental touches also fragility those device have no protection against damage. But I don't agree with Vlad on hating on iPhone 8/8 plus design because it looks like a device from 2014, that futuristic iPhone X display looks like an eyesore with that ugly notch design.
3D Memorys, 31 Dec 2017Which is the reason of worst smartphone? Is... Non-removable battery, no radio, no 3.5mm jack,... moreworst smartphone is:
Overpriced but still use Lcd,
Bad camera automode and low light,
Big enormous Bezel,
Old boring ui without any improvements,
Bad customer service,
Non-ergonomic square shape
Which is the reason of worst smartphone? Is... Non-removable battery, no radio, no 3.5mm jack, no proper software updates, no quality shutdowns and bootloop, depleted battery cannot be rechargeable...

There is literally no phone that has improved so many parameters from its predecessor as iphone x.
15% more BtR, 50% more battery (in mah), twice the pixel count, 50% more ram, twice the raw power... passive biometrics.
Those are stagering numbers that are more typically achieved between 2-3 generations and they did it in one fell swoop.
Sure it is useless because it is running IOS, but if android were even half as competent hardware wise we would live in a different world. Iphone X is literally 2-3 years ahead of the rest...
Like what Angie mentioned abt radiation from Bluetooth, and abt explosion. I'm only waiting for the first case of wireless earbuds to explode in someone's ear and that will be controversy.

Overpriced ? Sure, but this doesnÂ’t equate to a poor phone bud
When someone told me this is the best that is the best smartphone, I wont believe them, because they could be bias already. Just like someone said the S8 is the best smartphone but in daily usage they will find the fingerprint scanner is more annoying than others, the iphone lost the 3.5mm jack is a wrong way because most of the user have their used 3.5mm headphones, they lost the user friendly. What they start the bezel less trend is to force the user must fit the smartphone with a case just for few centimeter smaller size down. They put in 2 to 4 camera sensor in a tiny device to do a simple job! And finally they increase the selling price with the useless trends!!

I dislike the tall skinny phones with the trending aspect ratio, finger print and facial recognition, as you have just sold your identity for nothing to the highest bidder.

TBH, I would say that all the flagships of 2017 were actually quite disappointing as every one of them had disadvantages that shouldn't have been there in the first place. In my opinion, I think that all flagships could have been way better this year. Basically all the phones that were released were literally "undercooked" or still in "beta version". And the sadness is that brands are asking us to pay such a big sum. I would like pay the 900$ only if a phone is worth it. I cannot see that all the 800$+ phones are actually worth it. They may be, but not in the way that they are released. I cannot understand the bezel-less craze and why brands are abandoning the headphone jack. I am ok with the dual camera but I would prefer to have a powerful traditional "single" camera. TBH, I am not too optimistic about 2018 if I base facts of what we have seen this year. Yes things like bezel-less phones will remain but I would like to see new features that are practical. I don't want to see (but we will all see anyways) new features that are actually gimmicks and totally unnecessary. My wish is that manufacturers could start actually crafting their phones with more attention and releasing them more complete as a model. Then we could probably see their value for the price. If one wants my opinion on the best phone of the year, I would say none really appealed to me.
