Every year, the world witnesses a large number of new devices that include new and advanced technologies. While some of them may be strange and completely useless, there are many interesting and carefully designed gadgets and advances.
All of them together form an excellent example of how the best technology can be applied to make our lives easier. This year also, we saw some of the new and exciting smartphones releases that had a substantial influence on technology lovers. Below we make list the most important ones.
Samsung Galaxy S8
Samsung hit a much-needed home run after the public relations disaster caused by its Galaxy Note 7. That’s what the Korean tech giant got with the Galaxy S8, a redesigned smartphone with a dazzling display, long-life battery and a large camera.
The curved screen of the Galaxy S8 and the smaller bezels combine to give the feeling of a screen without borders, which makes it more able to display games and movies. The phone, of course, is not perfect: his voice assistant was not ready for the launch, and some found that his fingerprint sensor was placed strangely, but in general, it is a great victory.
LG introduced this year its new mobile device V30, which complements and to some extent improves the G6; which they worked during the first half of the year. This new smartphone comes with a refined design, closer to the Galaxy S8 than the G6 and, above all, more attractive. It does not have a curved screen. But it shows a better symmetry. It keeps the reduced frames around the screen and places the biometric elements in the back area much more accurately.
For its later area, LG bets for the use of a camera module with two sensors and different lenses. The main camera of 13 megapixels optical image stabilization and an aperture f/1.6. Which means that the V30’s camera can capture more light than other phones in the same conditions. The second camera has 16-megapixels and has a better space capture with less distortion than previous models.
The new releases of Apple’s iPhone always steal the show, and it happened this year as well. However, the new iPhone X is a breakthrough of previous versions of the phone. Losing the home button, the full-screen front and a lot of premium features are some of the changes that all iPhone lovers have been demanding for years.
Although new features, such as unlocking the phone through Face ID, appear to be risky for the company, the iPhone X is undoubtedly an excellent attempt by Apple to build a perfect smartphone.
The Nokia 6 marked the return of the Nokia brand to the smartphone market, this time with the Android platform. The phone features among its features a 5.5-inch 1080p screen protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 2.5D, a Snapdragon 430 processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
It also has a 16-megapixel main camera with PDAF autofocus, 8-megapixel front camera, 3000 mAh battery and runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
Huawei Mate 10
The Huawei Mate 10 is the ideal phone for someone who wants something a little different and needs a device that can easily last a day, and more, on a single charge. The biggest talking point of the Mate 10 is, as you may have guessed, its battery, which is 4,000 mAh and translates into impressive performance, with the possibility of extending the use to two days from a single charge if you turn it off From overnight.
On the back, the dual camera configuration is a solid point-and-shoot option, but it really stands out if you immerse yourself in manual mode; If you are a camera enthusiast who is willing to spend time tuning, you can get great photos with the Mate 10.
Google Pixel 2
The Google Pixel 2 brought with it some features that many wanted to see, such as water resistance and smaller bezels, although at the same time it eliminated the traditional hearing aid port.
It features a large 6-inch screen and 18: 9 aspect ratio, a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4 GB of RAM, a 12 MP rear camera, a 3520 mAh battery and dual front stereo speakers. In addition, without a doubt one of the most attractive things is that it comes with Android 8.0 Oreo and will be the first phone to obtain the new pure versions of the Google operating system.

It is a computer that has a screen with almost no borders and its interface comes clean of junk applications, its body does not have logos and has durable materials.
