Top-Rated Canadian Touch phones July 2016



Touch phones became all the rage after the first Apple iPhone hit the market in June, 2007. To choose the best touch-screen phones, we select phones with a large touch screen and keep only the best touch phones, according to their average review score.

* Note that a best touch phone list is also offered for all other countries.

#1. The iPhone 6S

Description

The 2015 edition of Apple's yearly September event introduced the iPhone 6S (alongside the 6S Plus), a slightly-thicker (7.1mm) 4.7-inch follow-up to the iPhone 6 that welcomes the 3D Touch pressure-sensing technology previously offered by other Apple products to the brand's smartphone lineup. Also, it scraps the 8-megapixel Full HD cameras on the previous four iPhones for a 12-megapixel 4K cam, with the selfie shooter advancing to 5 megapixels and its very own frontal flash, too. Another key tweak is its A9 processor in the engine room, a more capable mutation of the previous A8 chip driving the iPhone 6. The 6S also unveils the 2nd-generation TouchID fingerprint scanner.

In addition to the Space Gray, Silver, and Gold case options, the iPhone 6S offers a Rose Gold finish, fittingly tying up its premium-tier spec sheet.

Average Star Rating:
87.2%

Description

The 2015 iPhone 6S Plus takes after its predecessor (iPhone 6 Plus) in terms of its 5.5-inch screen, though this time, the 3D Touch technology, which enables new touch gestures based on the pressure applied, is at the ready. Similar to the 6S (4.7-inch), it upgrades the previous models' primary camera from 8 megapixels on a Full HD capacity to 12 megapixels with a premium-class 4K video option in tow.

The iPhone 6S Plus's frame, which is 0.2mm thicker than the previous one, is a bitter bite out of this Apple release, but at least a more-advanced A9 CPU chip resides within. Speaking of advancement, its selfie shooter is now a 5-megapixel HD FaceTime camera, using the display's 500nit brightness as its own Retina flash.

The 6S Plus also adds Rose Gold to 6 Plus's color palette (+), a coating that only a handful of flagship devices don as of 2015 Q4.

#3. The LG G5

Description

This fifth edition of LG's flagship G-series tries to solve the dilemma between metal casings and replaceable batteries with its modular concept, which means that its removable base slides the battery tray out so you can replace its 2800mAh battery.

The G5 also boasts a bundle of premium-class specs, including a 5.3-inch Quad HD (1440p) IPS Quantum display that scores a blinding 800nit brightness (many of its rivals settle for 400-500 nits). Additionally, it features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 quad-core 2.1GHz CPU alongside 4GB of RAM and Adreno 530 graphics, while its 32GB on-board storage can go up to a gigantic 2000GB capacity via its microSD card support. Another pro for this MWC 2016 model is its dual-rear-camera concept (16- and 8-megapixel cams), with features like 8x digital zooming, 135-degree wide angle shooting, and laser autofocus in tow.

Finishing touches include a trendy USB Type-C interface, a fingerprint reader, and an 8-megapixel front-facing sub-camera for selfies.

It also amps up the Z5's battery power to 3430mAh (with QC2.0), while sporting a similar 23-megapixel 4K main camera rigged with a pulsed LED flash and hybrid autofocus. The PS4 Remote Play app for gamers comes back, too.

On the outside, the Xperia Z5 Premium sports a waterproof casing and a fingerprint-integrated power key, while on the inside, it operates on a 64-bit octa-core (2GHz + 1.5GHz) CPU coupled with an Adreno 430 graphics unit. Its 32GB internal memory can be topped-up by up to 200GB.

Flagship-tier specs like Bluetooth v4.2, USB Type-C, and fingerprint identification (with Android Pay preloaded) deck out its 5.7-inch profile as well.

Promising to capture more light than usual, the 6P's 12.3- and 8-megapixel cameras come with 1.55um and 1.44um pixels, respectively. It also gives us a 3-microphone system, a 3GB RAM, and a 128GB maximum internal memory.

#6. The Samsung Galaxy S7 edge

Description

One of two MWC 2016 releases from Samsung, the Galaxy S7 edge boasts a 5.5-inch Quad HD always-on Super AMOLED display crowned by the previous Edge model's Edge Screen technology. Its innovative interface is accompanied by a bevy of flagship-class specs, such as a 64-bit 14nm Snapdragon 820 quad-core CPU, a 4GB LPDDR4 RAM, and 64GB of UFS 2.0 (Universal Flash Storage) memory that can go up to 200GB via microSD.

This model, along with the plain Galaxy S7, also introduced the Dual Pixel camera technology (12-megapixel 4K rear camera), which rigs the pixels on its image sensor with two photodiodes each, instead of just one, for potentially faster and more-accurate focusing. Also on board are Samsung's trademark Samsung Pay mobile payment app, a fingerprint recognition system, and a 3600mAh battery enabled for both WPC and PMA wireless charging. Gold Platinum and Silver Titanium are among the S7 edge's color options.

Description

Samsung built around the premium-tier specs of the Galaxy S6 for its MWC 2016 Galaxy S7, a 5.1-inch Quad HD always-on-screen flagship equipped with the 14nm Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core (2.1GHz + 1.6GHz) processor, a 4GB LPDDR4 RAM, and a 64GB UFS 2.0 memory with an up-to-200GB top-up memory support. It is the first Samsung model to rock the Dual Pixel technology, which means that each pixel on its 12-megapixel image sensor has two photodiodes (instead of one), for more-accurate and faster focusing.

Just like its predecessor, the S7 also supports PMA and WPC wireless charging (3000mAh battery). In addition, it brings back the Samsung Pay mobile payment application alongside a fingerprint detector and LTE Cat 9 connectivity (up to 450Mbps data rates).
