The summer is here and you are looking for a way how to make it even more pleasing? Why don’t you pick a new smartphone so you could catch or record your valuable moments on your vacation? We chose 3 best Android smartphones for the first half of 2017.




G6 was the first smartphone with new screen ratio 18:9 display. The Display takes up almost whole front of the device which makes it really unique and appealing. The smartphone is also equipped with dual camera setup where the second lens is wide-angle. A flagship device has to have waterproofing, the G6 is water-resistant with IP68 certification. There is a slight disadvantage with the G6 since it uses last year’s flagship processor the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821. On the other hand, this processor is more than capable of handling daily tasks of average user.

Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+


The flagship device from Samsung also comes with a new screen ratio, this time it is 18.5:9. The display is even curved with adds up to the elegance a unique look too. There are two versions on the market, the S8 has 5.8-inch screen, the S8+ has bigger 6.2 inch display so everyone can choose the one that suits their needs. Other interesting features are waterproofing with IP68 certification same as the LG G6 has, but most importantly the iris scanner. The iris scanner can replace fingerprint scanner which has very unpleasant position on back side.

New HTC looks very ordinary compared to the previously mentioned competitors since it uses usual display with 16:9 screen ratio. If you think the U11 is ordinary based on its looks you couldn’t be more wrong. The U11 is currently the best photo-smartphone according to the experts from DxOMark. There’s even more what to look up for. The new revolutionary feature called Edge Sense is nothing like we have seen before. The U11 can sense and react to the presses of the phone’s frame and make actions based on the strength or length of the presses. Edge Sense can distinguish short press and long press which can be programmed to your desired functions. For example, by a short press you can open camera and long press can be used for turnning on LED torch, launching an app or to start voice recording. It’s really unusual feature the can’t be found elsewhere.
