To be sincere, 2016 was a prosperous year of overflow of amazing Android Smartphones which includes, Tablets, iPhones, iPad, iPods and other stunning gadgets. And looking forward into 2017, it looks like another overflow year of Smartphones.
A lot of Smartphones and gadgets manufacturers did a very good job in the production of phones in 2016 and in 2017, they are promising us another year of eye catchy smartphones.
2016 has been an interesting year for smartphone fans, but 2017 looks set to be even bigger.
Samsung, Apple, Moto, Gionee, Huawei, Xiaomi, LG, Tecno, Infinix, Innjoo, Vkworld and many others were so careful in the creation of their Smartphones in 2016, starting from the Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge, to the iPhone 7, Moto Z, Gionee M6 and M6 Plus, Huawei P9, LG V20, Tecno Phantom 6 and Phantom 6 Plus, Infinix Note 3, Innjoo Note 3 etc.
Although, the big tech smartphones and iPhones producers known as Samsung Mobile and Apple inc. did a little mistake that almost made their 2016 a failure.
Firstly, it was the Samsung Note 7 that wanted to look like a flop also including the Apple iPhone 7.
Well, lets look into 2017. The world of best smartphones production. The first three Phone includes Apple iPhone 8, Samsung Galaxy S8, Nokia P1 and many others.
Best Android Smartphones, iPhones, Tablets in 2017
As I have said above, I will be looking into the first three phones and they are; Apple iPhone 8, Samsung Galaxy S8, Nokia P1 and probably others.
Apple iPhone 8
In 2016, rumors has it that some iPhone 7 battery exploded but it didn’t look so much like an important issue until people start complaining, well, Apple didn’t bother to look into the matter, the way Samsung did.
The question is, were they trying to control it or what?
And now in 2017, Apple are trying to introduce another “intriguing” iPhone 8 into the market and they look untiring. Well, for the history, Apple always introduce a collection of Phones with the same name “iPhone” and different numeric numbers, “4,5,6,7”

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus
Samsung Mobile has always been successful in conducting the creation of amazing Smartphones, Notes and others in the past years especially in 2016, including the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge.
The 2016 Note 7 which was released in 2016 was really up to no good. The Note 7 battery exploded and Samsung confirmed it and also did a serious look into the matter.
Now in 2017, Samsung Mobile has confirmed the rumors of Galaxy S8 speculations and features including the release date, price, locations and many other important features.

Meanwhile power is expected to be provided by Qualcomm. This means, if legit, that the Surface Phone will be able to run fully-fledged Windows 10 desktop apps.

Though, the Galaxy Note 7 was really an explosive dynamites but that doesn’t guarantee that the Note 8 would also follow the same. Looking at it, Samsung Mobile will set their eyes on Note 8 this time around and make it work in 2017.
Some say it will look to mend its reputation by announcing the Note 8 in February 2017 alongside the Galaxy S8, while others say it will drop its Note line altogether. We’d expect to see the Note 8 in August 2017.

A Look at Tecno, Infinix, Innjoo Smartphones in 2017
This should be another article on its own but then, I decided to add it alongside this place. After the launch and release of amazing Android Smartphones in 2016. I really think they prepared for us in 2017.
A Look into 2016 Tecno, Infinix, Innjoo Smartphones;
It was gracious, enticing, stunning, amazing, juicy, eye catchy, incredible and overall so cool. Starting from the release of Tecno Camon C9 to the release of Infinix Hot S to Innjoo 3 and back once more to Tecno Phantom 6 and Phantom 6 plus to Infinix Zero 4 and Zero 4 Plus including the Infinix Note 3 and Note 3 Pro. Tecno Hot 4, Innjoo X4 and many more.
2016 was a year of splashing and competitive year for Android Smartphones, Tablets especially in Nigeria. And from this aspect, I really think 2017 would be a year of remembrance.
And Now in 2017 Smartphones;
TECNO PHONES; In 2017, Tecno would be planning on releasing the first Tecno phone to run on Android 7.0 Nougat just like W4. And they might also launch Tecno Phantom 7 and 7 Plus, maybe we should also look at Tecno Camon C10 or a newer version.
INFINIX PHONES; Infinix are really good in this business. They keep providing and launching portable Android Smartphones every year and it is making wave. Well, they might launch Infinix Hot S pro, Infinix Note 4 and Note 4 Pro.
Each year they release a version of Zero phones. 2015 was for Zero 3, 2016 Zero 4 and Zero 4 Plus and looking into 2017, it might be Zero 5 and Zero 5 Pro.
INNJOO PHONES; 2016 really handled Innjoo with a rough hands, after paying huge amount for damages to FG. That didn’t stop them, they also bounce back by launching Innjoo 3 a leap forward. And in 2017, they might also launch Innjoo 4.
We are looking into 2017 and we do hope it will produce good and matured Android Smartphones. And not only that, we also hope wearable technology would also be available including Smartwatches and others.
