#1. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge 16-megapixel Camera Phone

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.

We found a 32GB on-board memory and a 2840mAh battery on this ultra high-end Android, which is crafted with a dual-tone metal (single colors are also available) unibody design. The One M9 is the first HTC phone to wear the second edition of the brand's Dot View Smart flip case.

#5. The Huawei Ascend Mate7 13-megapixel Camera Phone

Description

Huawei´s IFA unveiling comes with several previously seen features, but might still serve the phablet market well with its focus on performance. The Mate7´s 4100mAh battery supports roughly 8 CPU cores of Huawei´s Kirin 925 processor, with Mali-T628 graphics as well. It also borrows from the iPhone, coming in with its own security features built around a fingerprint sensor. Other high-end specs include the 6-inch FHD display, 13-megapixel camera and 5-megapixel selfie camera. The Emotion UI 3.0 also promises to keep its high-end experience simple.

Camera-phone-specific features

  • Camera resolution: 13-megapixel

#6. The Huawei Ascend G7 13-megapixel Camera Phone

Description

Huawei´s third IFA 2014 smartphone looks to be the lowest-specked, but still continues their Ascend G sub-series. This 5.5-inch phablet sports 13- and 5-megapixel cameras, packed with an array of features that probably aim to contend with that of Xperias from Sony and Galaxy models from Samsung. Its performance tells us that it settles for a mid-range seat, with a 1.2GHz quad-core engine (64-bit) and a 2GB RAM. Its 3000mAh battery power is quite decent, though. It also drags the resolution down to 720p, probably in order to retain the flagship look with a cheaper price tag.

Camera-phone-specific features

  • Camera resolution: 13-megapixel
  • Camera options: Touch Focus, Geo-tagging, Face/Smile detection, Panorama, HDR, Autofocus
  • Camera flash: LED
