HWM (Singapore) - - Readers' Choice -

With 37% of the votes, Sam­sung is still our read­ers’ fa­vorite main­stream smart­phone brand. For sure, 2016 was an event­ful year for the Korean com­pany: it started the year well with the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, and fol­lowed both acts up bril­liantly with the Galaxy Note 7. Alas, the Note 7 ended with a bang, and as they say, the rest is his­tory. Sam­sung con­cluded that ag­gres­sive bat­tery de­sign was to blame, and has come up with a new com­pre­hen­sive 8-point bat­tery safety check mea­sure to pre­vent such in­ci­dents from hap­pen­ing again. While the new Galaxy A se­ries phones are Sam­sung’s first smart­phones in 2017, it’s clear all eyes would be on the up­com­ing Galaxy S8. Com­ing in se­cond is Xiaomi, pur­veyor of some very fine smart­phones such as the Mi 5, Mi Note 2, and Mi Mix. And in third place is ASUS, maker of the ZenFone se­ries, which in­cludes the ZenFone 3, ZenFone 3 Zoom, ZenFone 3 Max, and ZenFone 3 Deluxe - just to name a few.
