Of course, that's not the full picture. Without launch pricing for the G6, and until we have full details of the Samsung Galaxy S8 (expected in April), we can't say for sure which will be the king of the 2017 Androids.

Still, the G6 is looking really exciting - will you be preordering, or waiting to see what Samsung have on offer? Let us know in the comments.
