Even if Black Friday is already over, there is still a bit of time left to take care of some last-minute shopping. And if you are like yours truly – having little to no inspiration when it comes to choosing Christmas gifts – you might find it hard to decide what to surprise your friends and family with this Holiday season. Luckily, smartphones are the perfect gift, so choosing one for Christmas is an almost obvious option. Here are some models released this year that anyone would love to see under the Christmas tree.
The Razer phone is the perfect choice for anyone in love with Android games. Its screen is amazing, capable of displaying the graphics of anything between mobile real money gambling casino games available at at Wild Jack and even the most demanding and action-packed titles available today. It also comes with a massive battery to ensure long-term gaming action and a high-quality sound system with front-facing stereo speakers for the best experience altogether.
Released: November 2017. Price: $699
Nokia was once the best name on the mobile phone market and the manufacturer of the world’s first true smartphones. Over the years, especially after the brand was sold to Microsoft, its value for smartphone users declined. This year, though, it has once again released some amazing handsets, one for every pocket. And Nokia 8 is its best, a phone worthy of the Finnish brand’s former glory.
With Nokia 8 under the Christmas three, you cannot fail. The phone has hardware fit for a flagship, an amazing screen, 6GB of RAM, a dual 13 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, and 128GB of internal storage.
Released: October 2017. Price: ~$670
Xiaomi Mi A1
If your pockets are not that deep but you still want to offer a smartphone that’s special as a present, you might want to consider Xiaomi’s first Android One smartphone, the Mi A1. While its specs are not exactly on par with this year’s flagship phones, they are more than decent: it has an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC paired with 4GB of RAM, it has a dual 12MP camera, FM radio, and a 3080mAh battery. What makes it special is its operating system: it is an Android 7.1.2 (Nougat) Android One on it (the plain stock version of the operating system) planned to be upgraded to a similar version of Android 8.0
Released: September 2017. Price: ~$260
