#1. The Samsung Galaxy S7

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). Protecting its ultra-high-end feature set is a waterproof and dust-tight IP68-certified casing, which is available in colors like Silver Titanium and Gold Platinum.

Description

Its 5.1-inch dual-curved Gorilla Glass 4 display might be the Edge's only edge over the Galaxy S6, which is similarly powered by a 14nm 64-bit octa-core processor (2.1GHz + 1.5GHz) and a 3GB LPDDR4 RAM. Just like the S6, the Edge also mixes the eMMC and SSD memory types for its Universal Flash Storage 2.0 available in 32/64/128GB.

Its similarities with the S6 also include the Samsung Pay mobile payment app, a built-in wireless charging mechanism, and the enterprise solution for business usability. The S6 Edge records 4K videos with its 16-megapixel rear camera, and snaps selfies with the 5-megapixel frontal sub-cam.

#5. 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.

Average Star Rating:

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.
