We asked readers to tell us what they think about 2017 smartphones.
Here’s what we got.
Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ Samsung Galaxy smartphones are on a tear right now.
We’re not talking about the Galaxy S9, the latest iteration of Samsung’s flagship, but the Galaxy 8, which is available for pre-order now.
The S8 comes with a quad-core processor and an octa-core Snapdragon 835, with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
The Galaxy 8+ is a bigger version with a dual-core Exynos 8895 chip, 8GB of internal storage, and a Snapdragon 845 SoC.
There’s also a 3,300mAh battery, and it packs the same 5.5-inch QHD screen as the S8.
Both phones have a fingerprint sensor, and they’re powered by Samsung’s Exyno 8 SoC with 8GB RAM, 64GB storage, a 3200mAh battery and NFC.
OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T OnePlus 3 phones have been a little more controversial in 2017.
The OnePlus 3 had a 4.5mm headphone jack, but it didn’t come with a fingerprint scanner, and the OnePlus 3 is only available in China.
The phones have both a fingerprint reader and a rear camera, but you can’t swap out the fingerprint sensor for the camera sensor.
The 3T’s fingerprint scanner is optional, though, and you can also unlock the phone using the fingerprint reader alone.
There are also a number of software tweaks to make the 3T a better phone overall, including a redesigned app drawer and a redesigned camera app.
OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T OnePlus 5 phones are coming out in May.
It has a 5.7-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 821 chipset, 4GB RAM and 128GB storage.
OnePlus has been releasing phones in smaller sizes since the OnePlus 2, and we’d like to see that continue with the 5.
The 5T comes with the same Snapdragon 829 chip, 16GB of onboard storage and 32GB of expansion storage.
It also has a fingerprint-detecting camera that you can use to unlock the device.
OnePlus is promising that the 5T will come with dual SIM capabilities, which means you can buy a 6-pack of 3G or 3G/4G data plans with a single phone.
It will also come with LTE connectivity, but we’ve not seen it confirmed yet.
3-4 stars If you’re thinking about upgrading to a new phone, you might want to be sure you have an edge case.
The Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have a 4-inch curved display, a 12MP rear camera with optical image stabilization, and 6400mAh battery.
You can also upgrade to the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, or iPhone XS and get a 64GB or 128GB model, which can also have a bigger display.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 also has an 8.3-inch OLED display, and is only now available in the US.
If you want to go all-in, we’d recommend buying a Galaxy Note 8.
It’s available in Japan, and will come in silver, black and gold.
3 stars There’s no question that the iPhone has improved over the past year, but its battery life has remained unchanged.
The iPhone 7 Plus has a 3.6-hour battery, while the iPhone Xs Max and Xs comes in at 2 hours and 35 minutes.
If your phone is only getting about 10 hours of battery life, you’re better off just buying the Samsung Galaxy X. Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, meanwhile, have a 5-hour and 30-minute battery, respectively.
LG G6 and LG G5 LG’s G6 has a 4K display, 2K video recording, dual front-facing cameras, an NFC fingerprint sensor and the latest Snapdragon 820 processor.
It comes with Android 7.1 Nougat, but there are a number minor bug fixes.
LG also has LTE connectivity in some markets, but not everywhere.
LG’s new G5 has a dual front camera with phase detection autofocus, but this camera isn’t compatible with Android Nougata.
There is a 5 megapixel camera on the back, but that camera has no lens.
LG has also released an updated version of its G5 smartphone, with a 5 mega-pixel sensor.
LG is also launching a 6.5″ screen with a QHD resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 chipset, and 32 GB of storage, which will be the cheapest G5 phone you can find.
HTC 10 HTC 10 is HTC’s flagship phone, and has the same Exynus 8895 octa core processor as the OnePlus 5.
It ships with Android 8.0 Oreo and a 3100mAh battery with fast charging.
It can also be upgraded to a 3G version.
