The year 2017 has been a landmark stretch for smartphone manufacturers. They have successfully redefined the look and feel of our favourite pocket companions while giving them more power and features than ever before. Today, most flagship smartphones have a bezel-free design with pictures that have greater depth, clarity, and focus. Companies have also started adding larger RAM to their smartphones to increase processing speed.

What does all this mean for you? Well, it means its time for you to upgrade your smartphone because Samsung, Apple, Sony, LG and Google have all introduced wonderful mobiles for you to choose from. Take a look at our top five picks of flagship smartphones.
