For a while there, we had reached peak smartphone. Every phone started to look the same. Phones became boring. Like, really put-you-to-sleep boring. Boring to look at. Boring to hold. And, yes, even boring to review at times.
But that all changed this year.
Smartphones started becoming exciting and cool again, thanks to the removal of features like home buttons and the addition of bigger, more immersive screens with thinner bezels and weird dual-camera setups. Phones are basically in an awkward transitional period — and frankly, I love it.
