The IFA 2017 is practically behind us. In Berlin we got to know some interesting smartphones, so for gsmManiaKs it was a really successful fair. Which premieres on IFA 2017 were the most interesting?
At the very beginning, I would like to point out that this is a completely subjective statement – so if you have noticed at this year's IFA more interesting smartphones than those listed below, then please let us know in the comments below the post.
The brightest star of this year's IFA was LG V30. The latest flagship of LG offers top specs, great multimedia facilities and a great look. If you liked the LG G6, then the LG V30 probably will love you. The LG V30 is equipped with a 6-inch (P) OLED screen . Many maniacs waited for LG to put this technology on its flag, so the decision was met with a warm welcome. There is also the philosophy of FullVision, which shows the minimum frame around the display and 18: 9 ratio (2: 1). Under the hood will find Snapdragon 835, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of user memory, and quad DAC from ESS Technology, for maniacs good sound. It is worth mentioning the Floating Action Bar , which is a semi-transparent floating action bar where you can place icons of the functions you need. It was he who replaced the extra screen. LG V30 should hit Poland in the next few weeks. The official price remains unknown, but should close in the range of 3499-3999 zlotys .
Sony Xperia XZ1
IFA could not miss the Sony Fair, which brought three smartphones to Berlin. The strongest and best of these is the Xperia XZ1, which in many respects resembles the Xperia XZ Premium we tested. In terms of appearance, the Sony Xperia XZ1 very much resembles many of its predecessors. It is worth pointing out that this time the manufacturer put on metal, not on glass. The potential customer will also get a 5.2-inch screen with HDR support , a powerful Snapdragon 835 with 4GB of RAM, an Android Oreo to start, and a 19-megapixel camera with great slow-motion. The real thing is that 3D Creator is a new feature that allows you to scan different types of objects. Later, such scans can be sent to your friends via messaging applications or made available in 3D communities such as Sketchfab. You can also create an avatar for AR effects in the camera. Sony Xperia XZ1 is 2999 gold , and you can get Sony headphones in advance.
Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact
Another Japanese newcomer to the IFA 2017 is the Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact. The appearance of this model pleased the fans of the maxi mini smartphones in the Android world, there is no meaningful alternative for him – one sensible competitor is only the iPhone SE from iOS. The Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact is a top-notch phone that comes out of a big sister. Onboard, you'll find a 4.6 "HD screen, top-end components, the same 3D creator and slow-motion camera, stereo speakers, waterproof and 2700 mAh battery, making the Xperia XZ1 Compact a true long distance trader. What was missing? You can get a little bit attached to the plastic case, limiting the memory for user files to 32GB and limiting availability on the Polish market to one operator for a dozen or so weeks.
Motorola Moto X4
Motorola has long had us wait for another Moto X smartphone. We met at the IFA 2017 where the manufacturer presented the Motorola Moto X4. It is worth getting to know this model because it will hit Poland in October. The Moto X4 is a mid-range smartphone, made from the fifth-generation Gorilla glass, boasting water-tightness. I enjoy the presence of an extra wide angle camera (120 degrees), which in my opinion is the best way to implement a dual camera on smartphones. The performance of the phone corresponds to the modern Snapdragon 630 with 3GB of RAM, which should provide comfortable working with pure Android 7.1 Nougat. For all these benefits will come to us pay 1799 gold .
At Wikinews IFA 2017 I also have to admit that the news from the French positively surprised me. The manufacturer showed three cheap models, equipped with 18: 9 screens that until recently were characteristic of flagship phones such as the LG G6. This is the Wiko VIEW series. Wiko View and Wiko View XL have a lot in common – it's one model, but in two variants, with different diagonal displays. The rest of the parameters are the same Snapdragon 425, 3GB RAM, 32GB memory and an identical photo set. The best of the series is Wiko View Prime . It received a faster Snapdragon 430 and more memory (4GB / 64GB). The most distinctive feature of this model is the dual selfie photo camera. One of the lenses is wide-angle, so Wiko View Prime will be a good choice for those selfieManiaK who love to do self-help in nice company. IFA 2017 also debuted some cool laptops – the most interesting ones are in Konrad's summary, which brought together the most interesting laptops from the IFA. IFA 2017 on mobiManiaK.pl
