Average 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.

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.

Description:

Not to be mistaken for the BLU Selfie, the 5-inch BLU Studio Selfie is rigged with a 5-megapixel autofocus (with flash) selfie camera, but is apparently too basic for its own good. It relies on only a 2000mAh battery and works with HSPA+ (3.5G) networks at best. It also comes with a standard 8GB memory, but twice the usual microSD support at 64GB. Topping off its specs is another 5-megapixel camera on the rear.

Micromax's Canvas Mega 4G is a budget-class 5.5-inch HD Android phone whose specs list is crowned by a high-end 3GB RAM (1.3GHz quad-core CPU), though the remainder of its features are far more-sober. It sports a 13-megapixel camera at the back and a 5-megapixel selfie cam up front, while a 2500mAh battery sits in the engine room. It also comes with several preinstalled applications, including Zaza Remote, which basically lets you control compatible infrared appliances using your phone.

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). Even though it sports a familiar bar-type facade with its 5.4-inch QHD dual-arced-edge display (Gorilla Glass 4), it manages to integrate a slide-out QWERTY keyboard into the design -- a touch-sensitive one! 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:

The OnePlus X (the Chinese brand's third model) is a limited-edition 5-inch Full HD OxygenOS smartphone crafted with either of two premium materials: zirconia Ceramic and dark glass Onyx. Adding to those design specs are five textured cases, including Rosewood and Karbon. Also found on its outside is the signature Alert Slider for profile-switching on the go.

Internally, it operates on a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 CPU, with 3GB of RAM and Adreno 330 graphics as accompaniments. 16GB of eMMC v5.0 memory is built-in, with an up-to-128GB microSD allowance at the ready. Even though it loses the 4K video capability of the OnePlus 2, the X sports a similar 13-megapixel rear cam resolution and a higher-res 8-megapixel selfie shooter (compared to the 2's 5-megapixel one). Finishing touches include two SIM card trays and a 2525mAh battery.
