Upcoming or recent phones 2016:

ZTE Zmax Pro

First released through MetoPCS, the 2016 ZTE Zmax Pro is a 6-inch (Full HD), Gorilla-Glass-finished phablet that features a fingerprint detector, a 32GB memory extendable by up to 128GB, and a 3400mAh battery with Qualcomm's Quick Charge 1.0 technology. Its semi-high-end specs list also includes an eight-core 64-bit Snapdragon 617 processor running at 1.5GHz, a 2GB RAM, and a 13-megapixel primary camera. Topping it off are a 5-megapixel selfie shooter and a USB Type-C port.

LG X power

The LG X power, a second-generation member of LG's X-series, takes its name from a massive 4100mAh battery, which is incidentally OTG-compatible, enabling it to power up less-enduring phones. It also sounds powerful in terms of storage, aiding its 16GB inbuilt memory with an up-to-2TB microSD allowance, while its 5.3-inch HD IPS screen meets users up front. Also aboard the LTE-enabled X power's specifications are 8- and 5-megapixel cameras, a 1.3GHz quad-core CPU (1.5GB RAM), and the Android 6.0 Marshmallow platform.

Panasonic Eluga Note

Among the 5.5-inch (Full HD) Panasonic Eluga Note's most-noteworthy specs are a 16-megapixel main camera rigged with a triple LED flash, an eight-core 1.3GHz CPU aided by 3GB of DDR3 RAM, and an IR blaster -- chiefly for remotely controlling various compatible home appliances. It also features a 3000mAh battery, a 32GB internal memory extendable by up to 32GB, and HD voice compliance coupled with the VoLTE (voice over LTE networks) call audio technology. Wrapping things up are its 5-megapixel frontal camera, Android 6.0 Marshmallow preinstalled OS, and Champagne Gold finish.

BLU Dash 4.5 2016

The Dash 4.5 2016, frankly speaking, is easy do dash off someone's wishlist (if it even makes the list in the first place), with abhorrent specs like a 4.5-inch FWVGA screen, a 4GB memory, and a mere 3.2-megapixel main camera on board. It runs Android 5.1 Lollipop supported by a 1.3GHz quad-core CPU, a Mali-400 GPU, and only 512MB of RAM. It only works with 3G networks at best and sports a primordial 0.3-megapixel (VGA) front-facing secondary camera. This Dash 4.5 update has a below-average 1800mAh battery power and is available in colors like pink, white, and light blue.

BLU Grand 5.5 HD

Kicking off BLU' Grand Android family, the Grand 5.5 HD is a budget-tier 5.5-incher equipped with two frontal speakers, a 5-megapixel LED-flash selfie camera, and a classy aluminum casing. Its less-distinguished specs include a 5.5-inch HD-720p SHARP display, an 8GB memory aided by a 64GB microSD card slot, and an 8-megapixel rear-facing primary camera. Among its hardware components are a 2500mAh battery, a 1.3GHz quad-core CPU, and no more than 1GB of RAM. Just like many other entry-level BLU smartphones, it lacks 4G-LTE connectivity.

LG X style

Released alongside other mass-tier X-series LG models, the 5-inch (HD In-Cell) X style banks on its 6.9mm thinness and curved-corners design concept. Filling up its bag of technical specs are a 16GB memory expandable by up to 32GB, a 1.3GHz quad-core CPU coupled with a 1.5GB RAM, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with gesture support and a virtual flash function. Additionally, this LTE-ready release sports an 8-megapixel rear camera, but only has 2100mAh's worth of power in the tank.

Kyocera Hydro Shore

Apart from its 4G LTE connectivity and IP57-grade water- and dust-proofing, the Kyocera Hydro Shore's specifications are all too familiar in the low-end smartphone department. It sports a 5-inch qHD-540p screen with Wet Touchscreen Operation, an Eco-Mode-equipped 2160mAh battery, and a sub-par (as of July 2016) pair of 5- and 2-megapixel cameras. The Shore is loaded with 8GB of memory expandable by up to 64GB and it runs on a middle-of-the-road 1.1GHz quad-core engine coupled with 1GB of RAM.

BLU Neo X Mini

This Neo version of the BLU Neo X comes with a smaller screen (4.5-inch FWVGA), but delivers a roughly-similar mix of old-fashioned specs, though it also mimics its base model's leather-inlaid battery cover. It runs on a 1.3GHz quad-core CPU bundled up with a basic Mali-400 graphics engine and a 512MB RAM, while a dated pair of 5- and 2-megapixel cameras are in charge of imaging. Like its 5-inch sibling, the Neo X Mini has 4GB of preloaded storage, which can be expanded by up to 64GB, but it has a lower battery capacity, at only 1700mAh.

BLU Energy XL

Boasting 5000mAh's worth of power and a phablet-class 6-inch Full HD screen, the 208g-heavy BLU Energy XL is home to a bevy of high-caliber specs. Among them are an encrypted file management system, a one-touch fingerprint sensor, and an eight-core 1.3GHz processor aided by 3GB of RAM. Gorilla Glass 3 protection, a 64GB internal memory expandable by up to 64GB, and a Type-C USB port join in as well.

The Energy XL banks on a 13-megapixel FHD-video rear camera and a 5-megapixel selfie cam for imaging, with the DTS audio technology taking charge of the music department. Like many other high-end contenders, it reels in 4G LTE Cat 4 speeds of up to 150Mbps.

BLU Energy Diamond Mini

BLU's Energy Diamond Mini is essentially a high-powered Mini model that headlines its budget-class specs with a 3000mAh battery scoring a 72-hour standard usage time and a diamond-pattern battery cover. It runs on a 1.3GHz quad-core CPU aided by no more than 512MB of RAM and sports a basic 4-inch 800 x 480 (WVGA) display. This model opts for an old-fashioned combo of 5- and 2-megapixel cameras, while its low 4GB inbuilt memory is expandable by up to 64GB. It is offered in colors like Rose Gold, Navy, and Gold.

Asus Zenfone 3 ZE520KL

A step-down model of the original Asus Zenfone 3 (ZE552KL), the Zenfone 3 ZE520KL drops from a 64GB/4GB memory/RAM combo down to only 32GB/3GB, with a lower battery capacity (2650mAh) as well. That said, many of the first model's upscale specifications, which include a dual 2.5D-curved glass finish, a 16-megapixel PixelMaster rear camera, and a 2GHz eight-core 64-bit (14nm) Snapdragon 625 CPU, remained intact.

On other fronts, this high-ranking Zenfone also features chip-level fingerprint security, an 8-megapixel front-facing f/2.0 camera, and an LTE Cat 6 adapter promising up to 300Mbps data rates. Its 5.2-inch Full HD display meets users with the Android 6.0 Marshmallow platform skinned with Asus's signature ZenUI v3.0.

Samsung Galaxy On7 Pro

The Galaxy On7 Pro is a middle-tier Android phone whose specs are trapped behind a basic 5.5-inch HD (1280 x 720) TFT screen. It features the Samsung S bike mode, which informs incoming callers that you are currently riding a bike, as a method of avoiding accidents. At the back, it dons a Faux Leather inlay and a 13-megapixel main camera that captures Full HD videos. In charge of storage is a 16GB memory expandable by up to 128GB RAM, while a 3000mAh battery is on power duties. It operates on a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU with 2GB of RAM and captures selfies through a 5-megapixel frontal sub-camera.

Samsung Galaxy On5 Pro

A Pro edition that adds a few positive tweaks to the On5's specifications, the Samsung Galaxy On5 Pro is armed with a Faux Leather back cover alongside the S bike mode that plays a pre-recorded message to alert incoming callers that your are currently riding a bike. Its technical features include a 16GB memory, an up-to-128GB microSD card support, and a 2600mAh battery capacity. It sports an 8-megapixel Full-HD-video primary camera at the back, while a secondary 5-megapixel cam is perched above its 5-inch HD TFT screen.

Alcatel Dawn

They say it is darkest just before dawn, but the LTE-enabled Alcatel Dawn's specs seem to be pretty darn dark all the time. These include a 4.5-inch FWVGA TFT screen, an 8GB expandable memory, and a below-average 1780mAh battery. Despite sporting the relatively fresh Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS, it offers an archaic 5-megapixel rear camera without flash and an even more discouraging VGA (0.3-megapixel) frontal sub-camera. It is driven by a 1.1GHz quad-core processor tied up with a basic 1GB RAM.

Lenovo Vibe C2

Lenovo's Vibe C2, a sequel to the Vibe C, brings up the older phone's 2300mAh battery capacity to 2700mAh, consequently promising up to 1800 minutes of calling time, and slaps the Waves MaxxAudio technology (for sound enhancements) onto its specs profile, but it opts for a dated hardware setup: a 1GHz quad-core processor aided by only 1GB of RAM. Luckily, it also upgrades both rear and front cameras, which now stand at 8 and 5 megapixels correspondingly. Finishing it off are 4G LTE connectivity, a 5-inch HD display, and the Android 6.0 Marshmallow platform.
