It features a similar 16-megapixel rear-facing camera, with a 2800mAh battery and a 16GB internal memory in the package as well.

88.5%

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.

#3. The iPhone 6S Plus

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.

#9. The BlackBerry PRIV

Description

BlackBerry finally comes out of the wood and has the 2015 PRIV merge their signature elements with the popular Android ecosystem (v5.1.1 preloaded).

In addition, the PRIV comes with DTEK, a privacy-oriented toolkit developed by BlackBerry specifically for Android. It also rocks an 18-megapixel camera with phase-detection autofocus (PDAF) and a 4K video capacity. In charge of the processing is an hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor (3GB RAM) and a 3410mAh Quick Charge 2.0 battery.

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.

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).
