Smartphones from Yesteryear that are Still Kicking Ass in 2017

04 September 2017 | Reymart Jan Sarigumba

While it’s always an awesome feeling to have the latest smartphone at hand, the burning question is: will it make a life-changing difference?

It’s 2017 and even from an avid tech user’s point of view, it already looks like we have now reached the peak of our technological innovation. Most new features that we get from the latest devices nowadays are just small incentives that aren’t really game changing as it used to be five years ago. That is why, it’s safe to say that flagship devices from a year or two ago are still relevant today, even with all the newest flagships coming out soon this year like the iPhone 8 and the Galaxy Note 8.

If you’re simply looking for a kick ass phone that won’t burn your wallet, you will never run out of options. Below is our pick for the best smartphones of yesteryear that will still give you the best value for your money.

Camera phone

As far as the camera goes, resolution (pixels) is only as good as a phone’s camera sensor. That’s why most smartphones today invest more on perfecting a better algorithm and integrating better hardware into smartphone cameras than further increasing its megapixels. That’s why even smartphones from last year and the year before that are still at par with the latest flagship devices of today when it comes to the camera.

Our pick: Galaxy S7

This phone has simultaneous 4K video and 9MP image recording, touch focus, face/smile detection, Auto HDR, and panorama on top of its phase detection focus and optical image stabilization (OIS). It can even take impressive low-light shots - a feat that majority of the phones today couldn’t pull off. Its camera sensor is so good that it even got retained in the Galaxy S8. Despite being 1 generation behind, its camera is still as relevant as it first came out.

Phablet

There’s never a shortage of phablet sized smartphones today. 5-inch screen phones and above have already become a standard and it’s quite appropriate for smartphones knowing that people love to stream videos through their phones. You don’t really need to buy a Note 8 for that, there are phablets right now that could satisfy your need for that for a fraction of the price.

Our pick: Galaxy Note 5

This spot would’ve been taken easily by the Note 7 if not for its battery fiasco. However, that’s not to say that the Note 5 doesn’t come nearly as good. It’s a Galaxy Note device, whether we like it or not, it will remain relevant for a long time. Not because of its premium smartphone branding, but because of its highly intuitive features that go beyond what a typical smartphone could do. The S-Pen carries loads of features that will take on-the-go productivity to the next level of ease!

Note series has become a staple of phablets because it invented one of the very first phablets.

Large battery capacity

There are but a few phones that come equipped with a sufficient battery to help it go all day with just a single charge. Surprisingly, Xiaomi managed to create an extremely compact device that could carry a battery size that we’d only get to enjoy in a tablet-sized device.

Our pick: Xiaomi Red Mi 4X

This phone is hands down one of the most juiced up smartphones that you’ll see to date, for its size. It carries a 5-inch screen but its body is no bigger than an iPhone 6. You can easily grip it with just one hand, but still enjoy a big enough screen for hours of video streaming (courtesy of its supersized 4000 mAh battery).

Sleek all-in-one device

There are phones that are made to take on loads of heavy tasks, while there are also phones that are made to be just phones, and they’re damn good at it!

Our pick: iPhone 6 and 6s

It’s been a subject of debate, whether or not iPhones are better than Androids. While the answer will greatly depend on your priorities (what matters most to you in a phone), no one can deny the fact that the iPhone’s UI is what keeps its fans coming back for more. Even Android manufacturers emulate Apple’s iOS interface but still couldn’t come close. It’s plain, simple, and pleasing to the eyes. Everything that you’ll ever need is right where you can see it.

If you’re budget conscious and do not mind a little compromise on the specs sheet, you can go for the iPhone 6. If you can spare a little bit more to enjoy a snappier processor, you can go for the iPhone 6s. Either way, these phones are still winners in today’s smartphone scene despite the iPhone 8 scheduled for release soon.

Apple iPhone X
HK$ 8,460.00 Design and DisplayHow do you create a deeply intelligent device where the enclosure and display are a single, uninterrupted element? That’s the goal we first set for ourselves with the original iPhone. With iPhone X, we’ve achieved it. The purest expression of iPhone.To create a continuous surface, with nothing to get in the way of your experience, we replaced the Home button with new yet familiar ways to navigate. So much technology. In so little space.The TrueDepth camera system allows you to take amazing photos and enables Face ID. It’s housed in a tiny space at the top of the display, yet within this miniaturised module are some of the most advanced technologies we’ve ever developed. Introducing Super Retina. Beauty through engineering.The Oled panel in the Super Retina display isn’t just any Oled. It’s custom-built to our exacting standards, allowing for an HDR display with a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio; high resolution and brightness; wide colour support; and the best colour accuracy in the industry. Brilliance to the edges.Using innovative folding and circuit-stacking technology, the Oled panel follows the curves of the device into the furthest reaches of the corners. Then it uses a process called subpixel anti-aliasing to tune individual pixels for smooth, distortion-free edges. True Tone.For a more comfortable viewing experience.True Tone technology uses an advanced six-channel ambient light sensor to subtly adjust the onscreen white balance to match the colour temperature of the light around you. So images on the display look as natural as on a printed page, reducing eyestrain. HDR.Now playing for the first time on iPhone.iPhone X is a true High Dynamic Range (Hdr) display. You can watch movies and shows in Dolby Vision and Hdr10. Your HDR photos will look even more amazing. And you’ll be able to watch HDR titles from iTunes, Netflix and more. The most durable glass ever in a smartphone.The front and back are all glass — the most durable we’ve ever made, with a strengthening layer that’s 50 per cent deeper. A seven-layer ink process allows for precise hues and opacity, and a reflective optical layer enhances the colours. And an oleophobic coating lets you easily wipe off smudges and fingerprints. Wireless charging for a wireless world.We’ve always intended iPhone to be a truly wireless device, free from charging cables and headphone cords. With a glass back and an embedded wireless charging system, iPhone X is designed for a wireless future. Surgical‑grade stainless steel.The stainless steel band that wraps around and reinforces iPhone X is a special Apple-designed alloy that’s both durable and more pure, and it polishes beautifully. For the space grey finish, we use a process called physical vapour deposition to precisely match the colour of the stainless steel band to that of the glass. Resists water, splashes and dust.iPhone X is precision-engineered at the microscopic level to protect against water, splashes and dust. Face IDWhat could be more natural than a touch? A look. That was the insight behind Face ID, a powerful and secure authentication system that’s even more convenient than Touch ID. It makes unlocking and paying fast, easy and intuitive. The incredible technology behind incredible simplicity.The TrueDepth camera system is composed of multiple innovative technologies. Working together in real time, they use a detailed depth map of your face to recognise you in an instant. Your face is your secure password.With Face ID, iPhone X only unlocks when you’re looking at it. It’s also designed to protect against tricking by photos or masks. Your Face ID information is encrypted and protected by the Secure Enclave. And it’s private — your data doesn’t leave your device and is never backed up to iCloud or anywhere else. Once it knows you, it knows you.Face ID uses advanced machine learning to recognise changes in your appearance. Wear a hat. Grow a beard. Put on glasses. You can even use Face ID with many types of sunglasses. So even if your friends don’t recognise you, Face ID will. So smart it only works when you want it to.For additional security, Face ID is attention-aware, meaning it only unlocks your iPhone X when you look towards the device with your eyes open. That means Face ID can also reveal notifications and messages, keep the screen lit when you’re reading
