The best midrange smartphones for 2017!
As we all know, 2017 is coming to an end. It has been an exciting year for smartphone enthusiasts, and we cannot wait to see what 2018 will bring to us. That is why we’re starting off the best of smartphones list for 2017! This week, we will focus on the midrange offerings from all the companies. These devices give out the best value for your money, without making too much compromises. This week, I picked the best three for different price ranges that are placed in the space between $200 to $500. So, whatever your budget is, you’ll definitely find the best device for your money. Without any further ado, let’s begin!
Highest budget: OnePlus 5T
The company that created the original flagship killer, OnePlus, is having one of the best years. The OnePlus 5 was their latest offering, providing excellent specs for a low price. The recently released OnePlus 5T improved it and still kept the low price. The device was upgraded for the latest trend in the past year – a long 18:9 display. OnePlus placed a 6” AMOLED panel with 1080×2160 resolution. Aside from that, they also updated the camera to take better night shots. On the inside, you will find the best hardware – Snapdragon 835, 8GB RAM and 64 or 128GB internal storage. The famous Dash Charge is still here, and the new face unlock is the fastest in the world. And you can get the whole package starting from $500. It is more expensive than previous OnePlus models, but it is well worth the money.
Middle budget: HTC U11 Life
I recently wrote about the HTC U11 Life, and it is a great buy in the $350 price range. HTC is slowly making a comeback from their past mistakes, and the whole U11 lineup is great. The U11 Life is packed on many features found on flagship devices, though it is also more on the safe side. It features a 5.2” Full HD display with a stunning design. The Snapdragon 630 is capable of hard work, and accompanied with 3GB of RAM, you should be covered for any work. You get 32GB of storage that can be expanded, an excellent camera and either with Android One or HTC’s SenseUI skin. Oh, and you also get the squeezable sides that can be found on the Pixel 2. And again, for $350, you won’t be missing much.
Lowest budget: Nokia 5
Yes, you’re definitely seeing a Nokia in this list. No, this is not a 2000s best smartphone list – Nokia is back. And they also had the best year in their life. Offering many devices for different price ranges, the Nokia 5 might be the best entry level midrange device available right now. It features a 5.2” 720p display, surrounded by an all-aluminum design. On the inside, you will find the Snapdragon 430, 2GB of RAM and 16GB internal storage (expandable). The camera is great for daylight shots and takes great pictures with excellent dynamic range and good color saturation. And the 3000mAh battery will last you for more than a day. Overall, this is one of the best devices for regular users, and for the price of around $230, it is well worth every penny.
