Upcoming or recent phones 2016:

Jolla C

Only the second smartphone from Jolla, the Jolla C features the open-source Sailfish OS 2.0, which is aimed at a device-specific user community as well as developers, but works with most Android-based applications notwithstanding. Its technical specifications include a 5-inch HD-720p screen, a 1.3GHz quad-core engine coupled with a 2GB RAM, and a 16GB expandable memory. It owns an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel selfie cam, while a 2500mAh battery is on power duties. This 4G-ready device dons a two-toned Black-and-Red finish.

HTC Desire 628

HTC's 2016 Desire 628 headlines its specs list with a 1.3GHz eight-core CPU, a 3GB RAM, and a 32GB memory expandable by up to a whopping 2TB. It sports a 13-megapixel f/2.0 rear camera, which is accompanied by a 5-megapixel f/2.4 selfie cam perched just above its 5-inch HD-720p screen. Its feature set also consists of the brand's signature BoomSound audio technology, a 2200mAh battery, and a dual-tone finish.

LG Stylus 2 Plus

While it retains the 3000mAh power capacity and 8-megapixel selfie camera, the Stylus 2 Plus replaces the 13-megapixel primary cam with a more-appealing 16-megapixel camera. Tying together its bundle of specs are the Android 6.0 Marshmallow platform and 4G LTE connectivity.

Samsung Galaxy C5

This initial model of Samsung's Galaxy C-series joins other high-end Androids from the mobile powerhouse with a 5.2-inch FHD-1080p screen, a 16-megapixel f/1.9-aperture primary camera, and an enormous 4GB RAM.

Panasonic Eluga Arc

At 4.7-inches, the Android-Lollipop-run (with FitHome UI) Eluga Arc offers a 2.5-curved glass HD display, a fingerprint sensor, and an 8-megapixel rear camera with flash and autofocus. Also within its specs list are HD voice, VoLTE, and a 5-megapixel secondary camera up front. It runs on a so-so 1.2GHz quad-core CPU with a 2GB DDR3 RAM and has 16GB of on-board storage. Sadly, this 4G-ready model is loaded with only 1800mAh of power.

ZTE Grand X Max 2

This sequel to the ZTE Grand X Max touts a 13-megapixel + 2-megapixel rear camera setup alongside a phablet-class 6-inch Full HD display and a 3400mAh QC2.0 battery. It runs on a 1.5GHz octa-core processor alongside a 2GB RAM and feeds Dolby-enhanced audio. It also features a 5-megapixel FHD-video front-facing secondary camera and a 16GB memory expandable by up to 64GB, while the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow ties all its specs together. The Grand X Max 2 comes in a Blue finish.

Panasonic Eluga I3

The 2016 Eluga I3, from Panasonic, banks on a specs list that is crowned by a mix of HD voice and VoLTE (both for in-call audio enhancement). It sports a 13-megapixel 5P-lens rear camera, a 5.5-inch HD IPS display, and a 2700mAh battery. Running things under the hood are a 1.3GHz quad-core processor alongside a 2GB RAM, with a 16GB on-board memory in charge of storage. LTE connectivity and a 5-megapixel selfie camera are part of its mid-range profile as well.

Motorola Moto G4 Play

The 2016 Moto G4 Play plays the entry-level game, with specs like a 5-inch HD screen, a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU (2GB RAM), and a 2800mAh battery inside its gear bag. While not offering the Moto Maker option for customizing its colors, it comes with a water-repellent finish as well as a 16GB memory extendable by a maximum of 128GB. Also on board are an 8-megapixel f/2.2 main camera, a 5-megapixel selfie cam with a display flash function, and 4G LTE connectivity.

Alcatel Flash Plus 2

The Flash Plus 2 is a 2016 Alcatel Android with a few pluses over its 2015 predecessor. These include a 5.5-inch screen upgraded from HD-720p to Full HD, a 3GB RAM accompanying a 64-bit Helio P10 1.8GHz + 1GHz CPU, and a 32GB EMMC memory expandable by up to 128GB. Specs like a 3000mAh battery with Flash Charging, a Hi-Fi audio system accompanied by an NXP9890 amplifier, and a 13-megapixel PDAF (phase-detection autofocus) camera with a dual-color realtone LED flash are also part of its high-class offering. Finishing off its feature set is a 5-megapixel LED-flash-equipped selfie camera and a fingerprint sensor embedded into its home key.

Motorola Moto G4

Headlining its specs with the Moto Maker (+) that enables rear, front, as well as accent color customization and a 3000mAh TurboPower battery, the Moto G4 is a surefire high-ranking 2016 Marshmallow-sporting Android. It is fitted with a water-repellent finish, while a 1.5GHz eight-core processor, an Adreno 405 GPU, and a 2GB RAM are bundled together on the hardware front. It has a 13-megapixel FHD-video camera at the back, while a 5-megapixel f/2.2 sub-cam sits atop its 5.5-inch Full HD display. It comes with either 32GB or 16GB of on-board memory.

Motorola Moto G4 Plus

This step-up model of the Motorola Moto G4 boasts a 16-megapixel camera with a color-balancing dual-LED flash, a 1.5GHz Snapdragon 617 octa-core CPU with 4GB of RAM, and a 3000mAh battery aided by the brand's TurboPower technology (6 hours of power in just 15 minutes of charging). Listed among those flagship-class specs are a 5.5-inch Full HD screen, a water-repellent nano-coating, and a 64GB memory expandable by up to 128GB. The Moto G4 Plus sports a 5-megapixel selfie camera with a display flash function and it can be customized to suit your personality via Motorola's Moto Maker suite.

Sony Xperia XA Ultra

Sounding like a major upgrade over the basic Xperia XA specs-wise, the 2016 Xperia XA Ultra boasts a 21.5-megapixel hybrid-autofocus camera and a promising 16-megapixel flash-equipped selfie cam. It brings back the XA's 2GHz 64-bit eight-core processor, but upgrades the formerly-2GB RAM to a more-reassuring 3GB. It comes with a 2700mAh battery with Qnovo Adaptive Charging and offers a 16GB memory expandable by up to 200GB via microSD. Tying its features together is a 6-inch Full HD screen powered by Sony's Mobile BRAVIA engine 2.

Plum Star

Unlikely to become a star in the basic phone market, the 2016 Plum Star's uninspiring specs include a 1.8-inch colored display, Java support, and a 1.3-megapixel camera. It has a 32MB native memory, just like most other phones of this caliber, but it also comes with a 32GB microSD card slot. Also on board are an FM transmitter, an MP3/MP4 player, and a torch function. It is available in colors like Orange, Green, and Pink.

ZTE Nubia Z11 Max

This Max variant of ZTE's unlocked Nubia Z11 does not sport a larger display (unlike many other Max models), staying with a 5.5-inch 2.5D-glass Full HD screen, and has a disturbingly-low 2200mAh power cap, but it does offer a bundle of high-tier specs nevertheless. The Nubia Z11 Max delivers both eye pattern and fingerprint recognition, which are backed by a Snapdragon 616 CPU alongside 3GB of RAM. It also features an upmarket pair of 16- and 8-megapixel cameras, while a 64GB on-board memory extendable by up to 128GB is in charge of storage. Also aboard is a Hi-Fi audio system with Dolby's signature sound-enhancing technology.

Xiaomi Mi Max

Standing at 6.44-inches with a Full HD screen resolution, the 2016 Mi Max joins other high-tier Xiaomi models with a six-core 1.4GHz 64-bit CPU, a 3GB RAM, and a 16-megapixel dual-tone-LED-flash main camera aboard its feature set. Its specs are powered by a large 4500mAh battery, with an expandable 32GB/16GB native memory in charge of storage. It also comes with a fingerprint reader, a 5-megapixel selfie camera, and dual nano SIM card slots.
