Which 2017 flagship are you looking forward to most?

Which 2017 flagship are you looking forward to most?
So, 2016 is pretty much behind us, all major smartphone announcements have been made, the playing board has been set, and all the players are doing their best to grab as much from the market as they can — especially now that the holiday season is on. And we, the users, have all pretty much decided on which 2016 phone is our favorite... or the biggest disappointment for us.

So, with all that said, now it's time to turn our eyes to 2017 and the exciting devices it would bring about. What top-tier handset are you most impatient to see? The heavily rumored Galaxy S8 or another modular LG G6? An aggressively-priced and much cooler OnePlus 4 flagship killer, or an HTC 11 that continues to carry the company's bold spirit? A Galaxy Note 8 that doesn't explode or an iPhone 7s that finally has a better screen-to-body ratio? Vote below and let us know!

Which 2017 top-tier phone are you looking forward to most?

Samsung Galaxy S8
Samsung Galaxy Note 8
LG V30
Sony Xperia XZ 2
HTC 11 (or however it's numbered)

Phones are getting pretty boring nowadays. I'm actually pretty excited to see what Chinese OEMs will come out with. Just pre-ordered the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 Global, as I think it's the most impressive phone I've seen in a while.

Phones aren't boring. If you stop buying overpriced featureless phones, they wont be boring. Oh wait, I still have my Note 7. Even though I don't use any of its gimmicky features like the Iris Scanner, I find it to be the most interesting phone, because it does what I want the way I want and has the Note features I have grown to love since the very first model I bought. Vanilla Android phones and iPhones, yes are boring because they don't do anything interesting. For me games on mobile are boring, mostly because I get sick of ads, and I get sick of in-app purchases. I want to just buy a game an enjoy it without interruptions. The best thing about my phone is, it has features that I can use that makes me never want to put it down. Along with how it looks and feel sin the hands is just truly amazing. Something I cant say about any other phone I've owned and they have all been good including older iPhone models. But when you have the best, anything less is garbage...no matter the brand.

No one actually knows if OnePlus is scared of the number 4, like many other Chinese manufacturers.

"No one actually knows if OnePlus is scared of the number 4, like many other Chinese manufacturers." But there are Chinese OEMs which use the number 4: is Xiaomi Mi and MeiZu MX4.

Edit: Xiaomi Mi 4 and Meizu MX4. But I get your point: Tetraphobia, which is the practice of avoiding the number 4, because of the very similar pronunciation of "four" and "death" in Mandarin Chinese.

Voted other, don't really care about most of these. I want to see what Huawei brings to the table next year. I'll care about the next gen Pixel once I hear that there might be a price drop now. I'll probably care more when I hear about them, but now, not so much.

I believe it is time for an HTC redemption story. Their Ocean concept seems very promising and could be the most innovative device for 2017. I used to love HTC designs way back when they had devices like the HTC Touch Diamond. Anyone remember this beauty? http://images.techtree.com.s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/ttimages/story/97026_htc-touch-diamond.jpg I hope they pull through. I may even invest in their stock.

Samsung is planning to drop flat screen on the S series. So the S8 will be curved, S8 Plus might be there too.

I'm looking forward to all new devices, but I'm really curious what will happen to the Note series.

Galaxy S8. I would say the Note 8 because I've had the Note 3, currently have the Note 5 and like the Note line, but I'm going with the S8 mainly because I'd like to use a phone that has a screen under 5.5in. I've used the demo S7/S6 at Bestbuy and my cousins S7 Edge and I like the smaller form factor more now.
