The 2017 Smartphone Test What's the best phone on the market?

Are you looking for a new phone in Switzerland? Picking out your next smartphone is easy with the high-quality devices that are on the market right now in Switzerland. So which should you buy? We‘ve answered all these questions, and more, in Hello Switzerland's Smartphone Test of our favourite three smartphones.









Apple iPhone 7 Plus: perfect for the frequent traveller

If you find yourself traveling often, this phone is perfect for you. The size is ideal for reading everything, from emails to Kindle books. Plus, it comes in a beautiful, sleek case. 

You might be wondering – why the 7 Plus? The 7 Plus has a bigger and sharper screen than the 7, better battery life and twin-lens cameras at the back. If the larger size of the iPhone 7 Plus isn't for you, you can also purchase the smaller version. 

Along with being water resistant, the improved back and front cameras, redesigned Home button and stereo speakers make the iPhone 7 Plus a contender to be the best phone on the market. 



Huawei P10 Plus: ideal for photographers and selfie lovers

We are truly impressed by Huawei's P10 Plus. Whether you view your phone as a traveling camera (or if you're just really serious about your selfie game), the Huawei P10 Plus comes with an amazing camera. 

Also, the design is undeniably good. This phone has the first hyper diamondcut finishing on a smartphone, which adds strength and colour.

The new Leica Dual Camera 2.0 Pro Edition uses precise 3D facial detection, dynamic illumination, and natural portrait enhancements to produce stunning artistic portrait shots in Leica image style. It's basically a mobile portrait studio in your pocket.



Samsung Galaxy S8: the most advanced Artificial Intelligence

We're convinced – this phone is beautiful. It's easy to hold in one hand (here's looking at you, iPhone!) but the screen is the coolest part, as it runs all the way to the edge of the phone. It's the biggest, most immersive screen on a Galaxy smartphone of this size.

Plus, the iris scanning security option is pretty cool! As Samsung explains, this technology recognises the patterns in your irises. This means that "iris authentication" is one of the safest ways to keep your phone locked. 

What's most exciting about this phone is Bixby – Samsung's new Artificial Intelligence that acts as your personal assistant and can recognise and work with your voice, texts and taps.
