#2. 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's flagship gets a rugged makeover with the Galaxy S6 Active, sporting a similar 5.1-inch QHD Super AMOLED screen. This variant focuses on outdoor use, being wrapped in an IP68- and MIL-STD-810G-certified shell that makes it resistant to dust and water among other threats. It also amps the battery power up to 3500mAh.

With the exception of the Active Zone, which is a collection of utilities like an LED flashlight and an e-compass, it borrows the remaining specs from the S6. These include its 16- and 5-megapixel cameras and Exynos 7420 octa-core CPU chip.

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.

#10. 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.
