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!

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.

Wouldn't that be the OnePlus 5?

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

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
I hope they pull through. I may even invest in their stock.

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.
