2. Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus

Core Samsung users that love big size phones went for it, do you know how the display will look like on a 6.2-inch bezel-less screen? The Galaxy S8 Plus has a bigger screen than the S8 and a more bigger screen to body ratio. The bigger version comes with a much stronger battery as well (3500mAh).

With the S8 Plus, there’s a 6GB RAM version for heavy users, and 128GB internal storage version if you don’t want to use a memory card.

3. Samsung Galaxy S8 Active

To be honest, Galaxy S8 was the best thing Samsung released this year. Topping search engines and rocking the tech market. The Galaxy S8 Active was another version of the S8 madness that stormed the Samsung sphere. The S8 Active stands pretty at 5.8-inch, the same size as the S8. Just like its name suggests, the device is very active and packs 4000mAh battery.

Meaning it is dust, humidity, rain, salt, vibration, solar radiation, transport and thermal shock resistant.

6. Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017)

If you are a fan of “Galaxy A” series, you would definitely love this device. The all-new 5.7-inch Galaxy A7 has an improved 3600mAh battery and a sharper camera. The 16MP rear camera and 16MP selfie camera both have a f/1.9 aperture. The 2017 version has a bigger 32GB internal storage space.

In terms of performance the newer version is also more powerful, housing the Exynos 7880 Octa which clocks at Octa-core 1.9 GHz Cortex-A53. This is the first “Galaxy A” smartphone to be IP68 certified, offering dust and water resistant.

7. Samsung Galaxy J7 Max

Released in June 2017, the J7 Max is a more advanced version of the J7 smartphone and apparently, people love it too. Although the battery isn’t as powerful as the one on the J7. But it is equipped with a bigger screen, better RAM size and x2 of the internal storage.

The J7 Max is powered by MediaTek MT6757 Helio P20 chipset, clocking at Octa-core 2.4 GHz Cortex-A53. Even if the 32GB internal storage isn’t enough, you can upgrade to 256GB using microSD.

8. Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro

It literally has the same features on the J7 (2017), but unlike that mistake, Samsung increased the internal storage space. The J7 Pro has two versions with 32GB and 64GB internal storage space respectively. The J7 (2017) was a disaster with just 16GB of RAM, the J7 Max and J7 Pro had a better year than that disaster.

9. Samsung Galaxy Galaxy C7 (2017)

This is another device that had a good year, thanks to its all-round specs and dual rear camera. You all know I’m a huge fan of the trending dual rear camera, and Samsung came through with the C7 (2017). To top it all off, the device is very affordable and can be purchased for less than $500.

The dual rear camera is perfect for photography, the 13MP (with f/1.7 aperture) + 5MP (with f/1.9 aperture) is more than capable. Though the smartphone is not bezel-less, reaching just 73.3% screen-to-body ratio. It sure didn’t stop the C7 (2017) from breaking boundaries.

10. Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro

The C7 Pro is the more advanced version of the C7 (2017), offering bigger screen size and more powerful battery. Apart from having a bigger screen, it also has a bigger 74.1% screen to body ratio.

The 5.7-inch device packs a bigger 64GB internal storage to store all files, which is upgradeable to 256GB using microSD. Unlike the C7 (2017), the C7 Pro has a single 16MP camera with f/1.9 aperture.
