People like to complain that tech sites and reviewers only get excited about expensive flagship phones that hardly anyone can afford instead of the everyman mid-range phone. But there are two good reasons for that: The first is that flagship phones tend to have awesome kickass features. The second is that those awesome features you see in this year’s flagships will likely show up in next year’s affordable mid-range handset.
If you’ve been longing to get your hands on the gorgeous Infinity Displays Samsung equips with their flagship Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note8 phones, 2018 could be a good year for you. Why?
