It seems like SAMSUNG has a very clear idea about what its customers want in a smartphone i.e. longer battery timings, good quality screen resolution, and incredible cameras as well as over the line specs.

Samsung galaxy S8 and S8 Plus comes with a curved screen feature which gives a very soft and sleek feel in hand along with the aspect ratio of 18.5:9. This time Samsung has finally thrown away its dearest physical home button and provided on-screen navigation keys. Samsung S8 and S8 Plus are provided with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor (or Exynos 8895, depending upon the region), 4GB of RAM, 64 GB of built-in memory along with Android 7.0, Nougat.

In 2016, LG tried to take over the market of Samsung S7, HTC 10 and others by launching LG G5 but failed because it lacked the smooth and glossy look comes with all others leading smartphones.

LG G6 comes with 5.7-inch Quad HD LCD Display with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and rounded corners. This phone is also provided with IP68 rating for water and dust protection and dual 13 MP rear cameras.

LG G6 is not a smartphone loaded with widgets and stuff that is mostly useless for you. It is a compact package with provision of those useful features you care about.

4HTC U11

Last year HTC launched HTC 10 it was a huge success. Made in Taiwan, the design of HTC 10 nailed down a spot in the top-tier smartphones and gave users the fundamental Android experience we love to have it. The HTC 10 was absolutely okay by not having all those unnecessary and gimmicky features.
