Quiz: Name the phones

Chip, 10 November 2017

Every since the touchscreen revolution swept the mobile world, phone design has been converging and over the past few years we often hear all smartphones these days look the same.

This trend was further boosted by the adoption of the wider screens, which eat into the bezels more and more and leave less for the designers to work with. At this point your average Joe can hardly tell a Samsung from an HTC handset, or even a flagship from a mid-range device.

But what about more tech savvy people? You know, those that know flagships' specifications by heart, read tech news religiously to make sure they are up to speed and check every review to make sure they know what works and what doesn't.

As luck would have it the average GSMArena reader falls in that later category so we decided it would be fun to conduct a little experiment. We shot 14 handsets with trendy tall screens that and want to see if you can name them.

Here is the first batch of phones:

Phones 1-5 (left to right)

Here comes the second one.

Phones 6-10

And the last set.

Phones 11-14

No phone appears in more than one of the shots, so these are 14 different handsets.

Too hard? You can click below to get the 14 names of the phones involved. That should eliminate quite a bit of the guesswork.

  • Apple iPhone X
  • Archos Diamond Omega / ZTE Nubia Z17s
  • Google Pixel 2 XL
  • Huawei Mate 10
  • Huawei Mate 10 Pro
  • LG G6
  • LG Q6
  • LG V30
  • Oppo F5
  • Samsung Galaxy S8
  • Samsung Galaxy S8+
  • vivo v7+
  • Xiaomi Mi Mix
  • Xiaomi Mi Mix 2

Off to the comments section then and happy guessing!
