The best phones of 2017 will offer faster performance and longer battery life, thanks to the new Snapdragon 835 chip for which headline performance figures include 25 percent faster graphics rendering and half the power consumption compared to the Snapdragon 801. It’s also got 20 percent extra performance vs the Snapdragon 820, according to Qualcomm.

However, if you are waiting to upgrade you should note that no phones running the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip can launch until after the Galaxy S8, which has first dibs. Samsung's phone is expected to be announced at the end of March and go on sale in mid-April, so if you can we recommend holding off buying your new phone until at least then.


Best new phones 2017: Apple iPhone 8 & iPhone 8 Plus

iPhone 8 UK release date: September 2017                              

Apple is set to go big on the iPhone's 10th anniversary, which could go some way to make up for this year's relatively minor upgrade. A combination of design and hardware changes should make the iPhone 8 the most radical new iPhone to date. This will start a new round for shoplifters as well. Telco’s all around the world should re-consider if their current display security solution is good enough to withstand shoplifting of the latest iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus. Gripzo anti-theft devices will fit the new smartphones phones of 2017 and 2018 easily. Through adjustable grips any new phone dimension will fit. Follow link for iPhone 7 mechanical smartphone security against theft.

The iPhone 8 could be the iPhone with which Jony Ive finally gets his own way: an iPhone that resembles a single sheet of glass with an edge-to-edge OLED screen. According to an Apple supplier, at least one of the company's new iPhones for 2017 will have a glass body. The TouchID scanner is thought to be hidden within the glass, while the physical Home button will be gone.

Other rumours suggest the iPhone 8 will feature wireless charging for the first time, and possible biometric features such as facial recognition or iris scanning. It'll run the Apple A11 processor and motion co-processor, and be devilishly fast.

One iPhone we won't see in 2017 is an upgrade to the iPhone SE, which Apple allegedly fears may hurt its iPhone 7 sales.
