Below is a selection of smartphones that I would have bought myself, having various budget constraints. But before you go to the selection, let me pay attention to what is important in smartphones for me.

Firstly, it’s a display, a primary oleophobic coating, then go screen resolution and the quality of the display itself.

Secondly – the speed of work. It’s very unpleasant to use a sluggish and stupid smartphone.

The third is the time of work. In 2017, you need to stop worrying about the fact that the smartphone will not live one light day.

The fourth is design and dimensions. I do not like thick and heavy smartphones, I’m uncomfortable with them. The same applies to impractical materials of the case.

Notice, I did not write anything about the quality of the camera, it’s uncritical for me. Of course, I would like to receive decent pictures in any lighting, but I so rarely take pictures that this parameter is unimportant for me. I focus on this attention for a reason, because if you have other priorities, then my selection will most likely not suit you. And now it’s time to move on to the collection.

And I’ll remind the critics, just in case, that this is my subjective selection. These are smartphones that perfectly fit the important requirements for me. Of course, you may have other priorities, and they will be completely different models.
