USB Type-C has initiated a take over
A long time ago, the method of charging phone and transferring file was through a Micro-USB port and cable. However, today, the common way to do all of these is through a new standard called USB Type-C.
Type-C is faster, efficient and of course, flippable. It also allows you to plug in your cord correctly every time. Below are current phones that have USB Type-C.

Nokia 8 Sirocco
Nokia's Sirocco phone is a complete treat for the eyes. Its 5.5-inch display stretches to all sides of the phone and curves at the edges of a stainless steel frame. This device looks and feels like the premium device the Nokia 8 should have been all along.

Both the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact can shoot HDR photos with 4K resolution and record super slow-motion video at 1080p resolution. For the most part, the phones share similar specs, but the XZ2 Compact is smaller, with a 5-inch display, while the XZ2 has 5.7-inch screen.
Asus ZenFone 5
With a prominent notch up top, it is really easy to mistake the ZenFone 5 for 2017's iPhone X. The phone has a wide-angle camera as well as AI enhancements.
If you are a fan of BlackBerry phones, the Key2 is a worthy upgrade. Its camera takes daytime photos that are bright and crisp and portrait mode that works well. Keyboard shortcuts open other apps, as it is a programmable convenience key. Battery lite is also perfect.
Xiaomi Mi 8
The Mi 8 follows after last year's Mi 6, it skipped the 7 to mark the company's eighth year and while it does look similar to the iPhone, its 6.21-inch AMOLED display doesn't quite stretch all the way to the bottom like the X's does. Also, on the front is a 20-megapixel camera which uses "pixel-binning" technology to combine its four pixels into a larger one for better low-light selfies.
