Apple recent­ly announced its iPhone line­up for 2017. These are the expect­ed iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, and of course, the inno­v­a­tive iPhone X. How­ev­er, we are not see­ing all the fea­tures of the new top smart­phone or the smart­phone of the future for the first time. And, if you still want to touch the future today, we picked up a few smart­phones that were ahead of Apple and turned out to be much more afford­able.

The whole smartphone is one big screen

If you want to enjoy a smart­phone that’s all one big screen, then you have plen­ty to choose from, even if you’re not ready to get an iPhone 10.

One of the smart­phones with a tru­ly huge dis­play that takes up the entire front of the device is the Xiao­mi Mi Mix.

This smart­phone appeared in 2017, its bezel-less dis­play has a diag­o­nal of 6.8 inch­es. 6 GB of RAM, pow­er­ful Snap­drag­on 821 — all this only empha­sizes the capa­bil­i­ties of this smart­phone. But very soon, his suc­ces­sor, Xiao­mi Mi Mix 2, will be on sale. By the way, the nov­el­ty will not be as huge at all. Dis­play Mi Mix 2 will receive a diag­o­nal of 5.99 inch­es. The smart­phone will be pow­ered by a Snap­drag­on 835 proces­sor.

Xiao­mi is not the only com­pa­ny that has cho­sen to get rid of the but­tons on the front pan­el — LG already did the same in 2016 in the LG V20 smart­phone and in the new prod­uct that will soon enter the mar­ket — LG V30. The lat­est smart­phone will sup­port QHD +, just like the Sam­sung Galaxy S8, too, by the way, with­out screen bezels.

Wireless charger

With the eighth and tenth mod­els, the iPhone final­ly began to sup­port wire­less charg­ing tech­nol­o­gy. True, unlike, for exam­ple, Sam­sung, Apple lim­it­ed itself exclu­sive­ly to Qi.

The range of Sam­sung smart­phones that sup­port Qi, PMA and Air­Fu­el is quite wide. All Galaxy S series smart­phones after the Galaxy S7 are already equipped with this option. (Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy S7 Active, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus).

As for the Galaxy S7 Edge, this smart­phone will also please its users with a dis­play with curved edges. Although no longer a nov­el­ty, the S7 Edge is still one of the most pow­er­ful smart­phones, per­fect for gam­ing, music and watch­ing videos.

Switched to wire­less charg­ing and smart­phones Moto Z series, but they, like the iPhone, only sup­port Qi.

To be fair, while wire­less charg­ing still takes longer than fast cable charg­ing, it’s actu­al­ly eas­i­er to use.

Face recognition

One of the most sen­sa­tion­al fea­tures of the new iPhone X, and one that no oth­er com­peti­tor smart­phone comes close to being so thought­ful, is facial recog­ni­tion, or Face ID. If ear­ly reviews are to be believed, unlock­ing the iPhone X is as easy as look­ing at it. At the same time, the smart­phone stud­ies all the details and bio­met­rics of the owner’s face, remem­bers the data and then takes pic­tures to com­pare it with the orig­i­nal and either give access to the smart­phone or not. The prob­a­bil­i­ty of a coin­ci­dence is 1 in 1,000,000. Whether this is actu­al­ly the case, we will find out very soon, but for now let’s see who else has applied this tech­nol­o­gy.

Apple is indeed not the first com­pa­ny to decide that a fin­ger­print is not enough to pro­tect data. Own­er’s face recog­ni­tion appeared even ear­li­er on the LG G6, Sam­sung Galaxy S8 and Sam­sung Galaxy Note 8.

True, on the lat­est smart­phones, the func­tion can still be deceived with the help of a pho­to.

It seems that in terms of data pro­tec­tion, Apple still man­aged to beat the com­pe­ti­tion.

Glass back

The glass back is one of the key ele­ments in the design of the new iPhone X. It real­ly adds to the smart and expen­sive look of the smart­phone, this is what the pre­mi­um devices of the future look like. How­ev­er, in this case, Apple picked up a pop­u­lar trend rather than became a pio­neer. The same tech­nique was used in the design of the noto­ri­ous Sam­sung Galaxy S8 and LG G6 — smart­phones that became the main top­ics at the begin­ning of the year.

One can only assume that oth­er man­u­fac­tur­ers will soon fol­low the lead­ers.

AMOLED display

A pow­er­ful and bright dis­play is a must-have fea­ture for a smart­phone whose entire front pan­el is occu­pied by the screen. But in 2017, even bud­get smart­phone mak­ers, like Asus with its Zen­fone Zoom 3, have turned to rich­er, high­er qual­i­ty AMOLED dis­plays.

Apple has respond­ed with a screen called Super Reti­na. Super Reti­na is an OLED dis­play that is “good enough for an iPhone”. Accord­ing to the man­u­fac­tur­ers, it has all the advan­tages of OLED, but does not have the dis­ad­van­tages of this tech­nol­o­gy, such as exces­sive bright­ness, insuf­fi­cient­ly cor­rect col­or repro­duc­tion, and so on. Which of the dis­plays is still bet­ter, it will be more log­i­cal to judge when the iPhone X hits the shelves.

augmented reality

Aug­ment­ed real­i­ty is con­sid­ered the future of gam­ing and oth­er appli­ca­tions. Man­u­fac­tur­ers claim that the iPhone X is a smart­phone ful­ly pre­pared for aug­ment­ed real­i­ty. True, a spe­cial smart­phone for AR appeared a lit­tle ear­li­er — Asus Zen­fone AR. It is equipped with 8GB of RAM and three cam­eras, only one of which is respon­si­ble for tak­ing pho­tos. The main func­tion of this device is to work with the Google plat­form for aug­ment­ed real­i­ty. Even ear­li­er, Leno­vo Phab 2 Pro appeared, with a 6.4‑inch screen.

Dual camera

The dual cam­era is not new to the iPhone, but even before the iPhone 7 Plus, when it first appeared, LG and Huawei smart­phones were already equipped with such a cam­era. Huawei even part­nered with Leica to pro­vide the device with a real­ly high-qual­i­ty cam­era from a man­u­fac­tur­er with a very high-pro­file name in the pho­tog­ra­phy indus­try.

While the iPhone X is still not on sale, the Sam­sung Galaxy S8 still retains the title of the most advanced smart­phone. Pow­er­ful proces­sor, amaz­ing curved dis­play and most of the lat­est tech­nol­o­gy in your pock­et.

It is incred­i­bly con­ve­nient to take pho­tos and videos, play games and watch movies with this smart­phone.

Bonus­es and sur­pris­es are wait­ing for all buy­ers of Sam­sung smart­phones in the Pho­to­sklad store!

The amaz­ing­ly styl­ish Xiao­mi Mi Mix 2 is a leader in size and is ide­al for any­one who appre­ci­ates con­ve­nience, func­tion­al­i­ty and an afford­able price. It’s great for work and every­day tasks, with a large screen and loud speak­ers.

This smart­phone will please any­one and will be a great gift.

Huawei P10 is a smart­phone that com­bines a rea­son­able price and excel­lent qual­i­ty. Spe­cial­ly designed for pho­tog­ra­phy enthu­si­asts, it fea­tures two Leica main cam­eras and a user-friend­ly pho­to app with many set­tings. A huge selec­tion of body col­ors ensures that every­one can choose Huawei P10 espe­cial­ly for them­selves
