The biggest trend among smartphones in 2017 was extra-wide 18:9 aspect ratio displays. Samsung and LG got things started back in the spring, and even Apple hopped on the trend earlier this fall with the iPhone X. But if you're looking for budget handsets with one of those super-tall screens, the best you can do right now is the Honour 7X at $US199 (no local pricing, unfortunately). At least until Alcatel got in the mix.
