2017 is shaping up to be a pretty remarkable year for first-generation smartphones. Android creator Andy Rubin debuted his new company's Essential Phone, which uses embedded magnets to connect to gadgets such as 360-degree cameras and charging docks. Gaming accessory company Razer announced its entertainment-centric Razer Phone, the spiritual successor to another first-generation smartphone, the cloud-connected Nextbit Robin.

You might be intrigued by the idea of trying out one of these brand new smartphones. But you should consider what goes into purchasing what is essentially an indie smartphone before you take the leap into untested waters. Phones with modular accessories or high-performance displays are definitely worth a look, but you should be prepared to deal with potential obstacles.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
