  • Very existed to see this new smartphone waiting for that.
    Hope come soon.
    Great list.
    Have a nice day.

  • Hey Sachin

    great article sir the detailed information you provided would be very helpful.
    I would be looking forward to more of your articles.
    kudos to your work sir.


  • Dude, there are many smartphones which can come with waterproof tech like, iPone 8, Galaxy s8, HTC 11, Pixel 2, Nokia 8 and many others, if we talk about launch dates so in recent we have seen LG G6 and soon we could see s8 then others.

  • If the surface phone does eventually surface, would like it or one of its variants to sport a 5.0 or 5.2 inch screen for ease of use & portability of the device. Larger than that is likely to appeal to
    the mainstream phablet users and the elderly. A removal back like those on some of the latest Lumia phones would be great. Hope MS also comes up with a fix to the overheating issue currently experienced by windows phone users even from a few minutes of use as the much awaited surface phone sees the light of day

  • Both are same almost, the difference is the brand value Samsung spends a lot in advertising, which increases the product costs, whereas the Xiaomi focuses on products rather than other things, however the plus point with Samsung is their equipments, they use quality equipments, if we talk about Xiaomi so it’s a Chinese company and Chineses products defamed in the world for its third class products.

  • what the big difference between Samsung Mobiles and Xiaomi Mobiles, is there only a brand difference or there is difference in making of products, we almost saw same pacification but big difference in price.

  • Though HMD Global has booked its place for the world congress event, however, there’s no official announcement. Great to know you have the details .. nice one.

  • Microsoft sold Nokia to HMD a Finland based company and Foxconn a Taiwanese company, not to Lenovo.
    It was Google who sold Motorola to Lenovo.
    Please make sure the accuracy of your news reporting.

  • what a load of bs. 8gb ram on new flagships are useless and a 4K screen on such a small panel? ok dh

  • I feel Microsoft is one of the best in all these phones .they have all in all there and a surface phones makes it something new .This upcoming phone will be boosted by an Intel processor, which is said to be more powerful than any other Snapdragon processors in the market rest the Key Specs describes it all ……..but when it comes to price I feel use the phone which serves you better rather than going for big brand names ……

  • Edward,
    As far as android is concerned, it is thing of future.. Your device, your choice of everything, you can customize it all… You could easily disable any updates from applications settings and choose to only update required apps (may be update none if you want).. It has most open form of OS, UI and apps available, gives you complete freedom. Unlike apple, Windows phones which restrict you for lots many things in the name of authenticity.. Anyways, your money, your choice !

  • Perhaps then you are under-researched for existence of MEIZU which is by far the most value-for-money, superbly created phone and easily shadows out any smart-phone in that price range. if you look at MX4-Pro, MX5-Pro, MX6-Pro which range in 20-35,000 INR; they have superb camera, one of best display, 4k video, amazing hi-fi sound quality, stern and solid build, good looks for a phone under 40,000 Rs. No device in this price range pleases the end-customer as much as this phone.

    I have been using MX4-Pro (546 ppi, EVER heard that in any of above phones ?? ) for more than 1.5 yrs now, have never faced an issue, never hangs.. Whoever has seen / heard its audio / video, camera and other features, easily becomes a fan instantly. Your so called OPO 1/2/3 whatever, samsung and others dont even come closer. These words not coming from novice people. Processor etc are not snapdragon but at par as far as performance is concerned.

  • Nokia C1 I will select if someone ask me which will be the best. I like features Nokia is going to provide in C1.

  • Sir, I read cool pad note 3 lite is very heat after 10 to 15 min and same as elite plus. Now I am confuse please suggest me as per your guidance which one is better Coolpad 3 lite, Elite Plus, Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime or Lenovo Vibe K5. I am not a game lover only time pass. I want camera quality good and battery backup. please sugegest phone under 7000/-.

  • HTC is going down and down….love the brand , but hate its products,all the product after M8 release .
    M8 had a very awesome design…they could have made some changes in specifications and colors..thats what iphone does.They could have released HTC MAX 2..with improved finger print reader and specifications with new color choices…but noo…they started copying apple and Motorola style which i hate the most….i own a desire 816….love its look and sense 7 . ” HTC GET YOUR BOLTS TIGHTENED AND GET BACK IN THE GAME”………..

  • I am looking for MI 6 and i am quite sure that it will be again a game changer, it will change the mood of consumer who running for big brands like Apple, Samsung, Sony Motorla etc….

    Good Luck MI !!!

  • Sir thanks for your valuable posts.What you think Apples new iPhone 7 will come in dual sim or not.

  • I like NOKIA so waiting for this mobile


  • you can go for nextbit-robin.
    its has a unique design among all upcoming design.
    yeah but there pros as well as cons too.

  • waiting for Microsoft surface phones eagerly. Microsoft willl be number 1. I have used 950 xl. That one was a great phone and in fact as per performance much better then IPHONE 6 or galaxy s6.

  • This is but my opinion, all these phones are great in terms of tech but when it comes to style and elegance all these units are much of the same. I understand the need for the bigger screens but when you sitting arround a table with a few phones on it, you think you looking at a TV monitor.. Whether thin or sleak its only what is on the inside that sets them all apart.


  • I just love the concept of the surface phone. It truly stands out in terms of design and functionality. It looks pretty believable as it carries forward the design philosophy of the surface tablet.
    I am also a Nokia phone, but will stick to windows ecosystem only.
    I am sure that the upcoming Nokia phone will be an android phone, but if I could get that phone running windows, i will be among the first ones to pick it. Fingers crossed for 2017 or 2018, by when I am sure Nokia will consider windows OS again for their phones.

  • Hello it’s me, I am also visiting this site on a regular basis, this website is really pleasant and the viewers
    are truly sharing good thoughts.

  • Some time ago Apple had to pay Nokia royalties for patents, they should buy Nokia from Lenovo to improve their reputation for making fragile phones.

  • I’ll go with Nokia, i’m just too tired of all the Smartphone crap.Whenever it drops the phone, i’ll be ready to catch it.

  • Letv was very good smart feautred phone and it will be cost is very low please add this page on this details of letv 1s phone

  • Cant you guys prepare an article about mobiles design? Passport would be a good start

  • All mobiles look the same… Am i the only one that wants something different?? Its a sad world When everyone wants to look alike

  • just putting it into Word or some other program with a spellcheck thing can fix almost all the errors in a very short time.

  • Nowadays everything is digitalized, the same way our smart phone users crave for more and more advanced features. Its revolutionary, digital India.

    If I talk about this article, sometime we can’t expect, how useful a article can be? I am looking for a smart phone and every smartphone in this article is damn good. I am more of interested in Xiaomi Mi 6. Thanks for a nicely written article.

  • wow this guy cannot be serious
    950XL released wayy back in late 2015 and apparently 940 is gonna release in 2016

  • Once Letv launches its superphones, they will be one of the best budget phones in the market.The budget phone does have a lot of unique features to offer.

  • My main concerns (this is just my own personal interests for my usage) are a long battery life, fast shutter speed and quick focus on my camera, RELIABILITY (last 2 phones crapped out on me before 2 year upgrade), removable SIM, expandable memory slot, removable battery, less bloatware.. If I want something, I’ll DL it myself. I don’t want my carrier or phone manufacturer putting apps on my phone and taking up space that I can’t uninstall (No, freezing/disabling them isn’t an option- I simply don’t want them on my phone) And I shouldn’t have to root my phone to do this. I’m not a huge fan of rooting for quite a few reasons.

  • MICROSOFT lumia 940 and 940xl will have 20 mp rear and 8 mp front facing camera.
    940xl- 6inch nd 940- 5.3/5.4inch
    operating system- if microsoft confirms about windows 11 for 2016 this phones will be the flagship or else it will run same windows 10.
    fingerprint lock for phone.
    4k display expexted.
    2.6 ghz.
    PRICE- approx 50k

  • I concur. There needs to be something a little more ‘groundbreaking’ sooner rather than later!

  • We Respect your view if we will be getting more requests like yours surely we will be working on your thoughts and soon bring that article. Thanks for your comment

  • Rather predictable.. the same big brands.. I was looking for some upcoming brands like Xiaomi or some lesser known OS like Firefox.

    Tell me what to be greatly excited about are in these phones. the same features, little better. Faster processor, bigger RAM, more storage, better ppi… thats nothing to wait for really. Everyday there will be better phones if we judge on these aspects.

  • You wrote a good post. Most of tech lovers are waiting to see Samsung Galaxy S7 and iPhone 7. I am also waiting for releasing next Apple’s iPhone. 🙂

  • This are the particularity about some biggest brands in the world Xiaomi, or Meizu is not as much bigger brand value in the world they are Chinese based company they are just aiming the budget devices we haven’t seen much uniqueness as comparing to Oppo And Oneplus. That is we think main Reason for not mentioning them
