Top 6 Android Phones Recommendations For The Year 2017

Over a past few years, the world has been flooded with new releases/announcements of smartphone brands, be it Android or iphone. Each release of a phone feels like a single Mentos being dropped into a 2-litre coke ending up creating a new explosion of debate that who has the best phone, iOS or Android! Now before getting into the nitty-gritty of the topic, I would like to reveal that I am not an “Apple hater”. It’s just that I use the phone which fits my needs. Besides, I have several technology based reasons which prove that android phone is better than iphone.

Reason #1- Ample of choices

Android offers an endless range of choices for phones. I mean you can buy a phone whose main focus is the camera or do you want a phone that could easily withstand rough use or being dropped several times? And I think that’s the beauty of Android phones, you can get the one that fits you.

Reason #2- Customization

Another interesting reason for choosing an Android phone is its customization. Don’t like the standard Android keyboard? Well, you can download third-party keyboard app that easily replaces the stock one. In addition to this, you can download a new launcher especially when you don’t like the launcher that currently runs on your phone.

Reason #3- Other interesting features

Some of the other interesting features offered exclusively by an Android phone are:

  • Water and dust resistant
  • Wireless charging
  • IR (infrared) blaster to control devices
  • Ability to access all your files by using your phone as a mass storage device

Other than this, one key way that makes Android OS massively different from its Apple brand competition is the number of phones running out there in the market. 2017 is still young unveiling a fresh wave of handsets around the corner. Here I have rounded up the best Android handsets out there today, rating the phones on hardware performance, OS upgrade potential and, of course, how shiny and nice they are to have.

Here are they:
