Top 10 best smartphones at the beginning of 2017

10. Apple iPhone SE

Average price - 34,989rub.

The model with 16 or 64 gigabytes of memory( but without a slot for expanding memory) and a 4-inch screen users in the reviews are praised for the build quality, a good 12-megapixel camera, speed and form factor. Not all are fond of "shovel-shaped" smartphones, and "apple" gadget, as they say, is small and remote.

Criticize the iPhone SE for a high price, unstable wi-fi, and a quickly scratchable case. Do not wear a smartphone in one pocket with keys.

9. Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

The average price is 59,989 rubles.

The screen of this eight-core smartphone is larger than that of the tenth number of our rating. It takes up 5.5 inches and has curved edges, so it seems less tactile and visually. Has high-quality protection from water and dust, equipped with a 12-megapixel camera with Dual pixel technology, numerous sensors, including a heart rate sensor and another, fingerprint reader. There is a memory card slot for up to 200 GB.

Among the shortcomings, users note the false pressures and lightness with which the glass is scratched.

8. Samsung Galaxy A3

The cost, on average - 17,989 rubles.

The golden mean of the display is 4.7 inches. Other advantages of the model: 13-megapixel camera, nice design, long-playing battery( no games, but with internet surfing for two days of work).But his younger brother, the novelty of 2017 Galaxy A5 managed to get on the list of the best smartphones in 2017.The rating is already published on the pages of Basetop.

Disadvantages: low memory( 16 GB and 1.5 GB built / operative respectively), there are criticisms for sound quality, slippery body.

7. Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro

The cost, on average - 17 980 rubles.

Cheap, reliable, practical - these are the three whales on which the popularity of the brand of the best Chinese smartphones of 2017, Xiaomi, rests. This smartphone with a battery of 4050 mAh, a 5.5 "display, 32 GB of memory( plus a memory card slot), a fingerprint scanner and a huge selection of settings will serve you both New Year and Old Year and a few more years after.

Cons: the case slides in the hand.

6. Xiaomi Redmi Note 4

The average price is 19,990 rubles.

One of the best smartphones of 2017, with a battery even more capacious than the Redmi Note 3 Pro( 4100 mAh), 64 gigabytes for user files( and there is also a slot for a memory card), a screen of 5.5 inches and a beautiful appearance.

What does not suit the owners: when working smartphone is heated, the camera with the standard settings, the sharpness and brightness are too high.

5. Apple iPhone 6S

For sale, on average, for 47 989 rubles.

The fifth place in our top-10 most popular smartphone models went to the 32-gigabyte sixth version of "iPhone".It has a 4.7-inch Retina HD screen, a 12-megapixel camera and an A8 processor( in the fifth version - A7).With Internet surfing, without running games, the smartphone keeps charge for the day.

4. Apple iPhone 7 Plus

The average price is 76,889 rubles.

Of the minuses: on the elegant onyx case immediately visible traces of fingers.

3. Samsung Galaxy S7

It is worth, on average, 49 989 rubles.

From the S7 Edge model differs only in screen size - 5.1 inches and lower battery capacity - 3000 mAh versus 3600 mAh. And the price difference between the models is insignificant. If you have long wanted a top model from Samsung, but confused the curved screen, then safely take Galaxy S7.

2. Xiaomi Redmi 3S

The average cost of 12 990 rubles.

And another representative of Xiaomi in the list of the best smartphones beginning in 2017.Impressive battery( 4100 mAh), not too big and not too small 5-inch display, 13-megapixel camera - what more could you desire for such a price?

Some users do not like the sound in the headphones, the quality of the pictures taken indoors, and the fact that the phone is heating up strongly in 4g mode.

1. Apple iPhone 7

At the first line of the smartphone hit parade, there are two versions of 7 iPhone at once: 128 GB and 32 GB.The screen is the same - 4.7 inches.
