1. BlackBerry KEYone

This is a phone for dinosaurs, no two ways about it. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, of course – the KEYone is good enough to serve its target audience very well. Old-school business professionals will be happy that, whenever they get the chance to escape the confines of their offices, they'll be having a good-looking and powerful mobile communicator at their disposal – a tool, an instrument through which they can keep shooting emails left and right, and maybe even get back to working that spreadsheet. This is not a fun phone, a phone for artists or visionaries. It's for the number-cruncher, the operations expert, the small business owner too stubborn to change.

2. Huawei P10

The Huawei P10 and P10 Plus feature sleek new designs with an improved dual camera system made in collaboration with Leica. Huawei has put the focus on meticulously crafting the pair, with new laser cutting and precision finishes, so that the phones are shiny yet do not attract fingerprints easily. In camera, it is the software that really makes these two new phones stand out. Huawei has built in a brand new Portrait mode that will add those creamy, blurred backgrounds to pictures that will make people stand out, an effect similar to that of the iPhone 7 Plus.

3. LG G6

There is a ton of new features about the LG G6, but a lot of them center around the new 5.7-inch display that is now taller and narrower, with a new 2:1 aspect ratio. LG has somehow managed to cram this display into a phone that is actually smaller than the 5.3-inch LG G5, and the new screen has opened up new possibilities for interaction. In fact, there are so many changes in the LG G6 interface that the company has even introduced a new, LG UX 6.0 software version. It runs on top of Android 7.1 Nougat and allows you to do more: see bigger previews of your photos in the camera app, see more appointments in the calendar, better manage your email, see a more informative and richer weather forecast, and so on.

4. Moto G5

The Moto G series has established itself as the go-to phone for those looking for an affordable, no-headache phone with a decent performance. And Lenovo has just unveiled the newest in the series: the Moto G5 and its larger cousin, the G5 Plus. It's running on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat, features an unspoiled, fairly clean Android build, an improved camera and some basic level of water protection. The bad is that the base model only ships with 16GB of storage, but you can bring your own microSD card to the party and expand the storage.

5. New Nokia 3310

It was not smartphones that were the highlight of Nokia's presentation: it was an unpretentious call back from the past. It was the Nokia 3310, reimagined and refreshed. The indestructible phone, the subject of memes and legends, has gotten a visual overhaul, has the Snake game, a month of stand-by time, and... is not a smartphone. Yes, it all sounds nostalgic (we feel you), but those keys are surprisingly disappointing to type on. If you can deal with it, this is a perfect 'mobile phone rehab' phone.

6. Nokia 6

The Nokia 6 goes global! After a China-only launch, the phone is ready to show itself to the whole wide world. What has it got to offer? A roomy 5.5-inch display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution, powered by the Snapdragon 430 chipset carrying an octa-core 1.4GHz CPU, and the Adreno 505 GPU. There is 4GB of RAM inside along with 64GB of native storage. The camera combo from back to front weighs in at 16GB and 8GB respectively. Keeping the lights on is a 3000mAh battery, and Android 7.0 is installed.

7. Nokia 5

The Nokia 5 was briefly previewed as having a larger, 5.2-inch HD display, and will cost 189 Euros. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 with 2 GB RAM, the Nokia 5 is crafted out of a single sheet of anodized aluminum and has a 13 MP main camera, as well as a hearty 3000 mAh battery. The handset sports 16 GB of internal memory, but does offer a microSD slot for storage expansions, too.

8. Nokia 3

The Nokia 3 is a basic cheap phone with absolutely nothing remarkable about it, except the Nokia brand name. It's a 5-inch phone with an HD screen made out of polycarbonate (yep, simple plastic) with an aluminum frame. It features an 8MP camera on both the front and the back, while under the hood there is a quad-core MediaTek processor, coupled with 2 GB RAM. You get a 2,650 mAh battery to keep the lights on, while the phone comes with a barely acceptable 16 GB of internal storage, plus a memory card slot if you need more. The best thing about the Nokia 3 is its price: €139, as cheap as it gets.

9. Sony Xperia XZ Premium

Sony continues with its break-neck pace of announcing new phones: six months after its newest Xperia XZ and Xperia X Compact, it is ready to show the world a new series. The Xperia XZ Premium is the pearl in its new selection, a stunning phone with a 5.5-inch 4K display (yes, you read that right, 4K!), the newest Snapdragon 835 system chip, high-resolution audio, and the latest Android 7.1 Nougat. It's an all-out phone that will likely feature an all-out price.

10. Sony Xperia XZs

The Sony Xperia XZs is the upgrade to Sony's 2016 flagship – the Xperia XZ. Or at least that's what it should've been. What we got instead is almost the same phone with a slightly improved camera. That pretty much covers the device.

11. Sony Xperia XA1 | XA1 Ultra

Compared to the first members of the XA line which premiered last year, the XA1 and XA1 Ultra feature improvements in four key areas: camera, SoC, system memory, and internal storage. Sony unveils the Xperia XA1 and XA1 Ultra: Stylish mid-rangers with impressive main cameras Both phones come with the MediaTek Helio P20 chipset and a 23 MP main snapper, but there is a noticeable difference with the selfie cams.
