Average Rating:
92.5%


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.

Average Rating:

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.

Description:

Armed with more RAM (3GB) and battery power (3300mAh) than the 2015 version, the 5.5-inch Full HD Galaxy J7 2016 is a slightly-more-advanced edition of the older model. It sports a 13-megapixel FHD-video rear camera and a 5-megapixel selfie cam, the latter assisted by frontal LED lights. Inside the engine room, it operates on a 1.6GHz octa-core processor and is powered by a 3300mAh battery. Also part of its specs are NFC, VoLTE (for in-call audio enhancement), and a 16GB memory expandable by up to 12GB.

#5. The Samsung Galaxy Express Prime

Average Rating:

Description:

Though geared towards a mid-range audience, the Samsung Galaxy Express Prime boasts a scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass 4 finish as well as a 577ppi definition on its 5-inch HD Super AMOLED screen, which are reminiscent of the screens of many high-tier 2016 Q1 smartphones. That said, its remaining specs, which include a 16GB memory expandable by up to 128GB and a quad-core 1.3GHz CPU with 1.5GB of RAM, are only of a middle-class caliber. It also settles for 5- and 2-megapixel cameras, but does rely on a decent (as of its release) 2600mAh battery.

#6. The LG Phoenix 2

Average Rating:

Description:

LG's Phoenix 2 will not likely become stuff of legend, considering that its specs list includes only a 5-inch HD screen and a 1.3GHz quad-core CPU with 1.5GB of RAM. That said, it sports LG's signature rear-keys design, while touting a pair of 8- and 5-megapixel cameras. Also in the mix are a 16GB expandable memory, a 2125mAh battery, and a blend of VoLTE and HD voice for in-call audio enhancement. This model has an M3/T3 hearing aid certification and offers NFC (Near Field Communication).

Description:

This LTE-capable flip phone from Kyocera, the DuraXE, is powered by a 1.1GHz quad-core processor (1GB RAM) and is armed with a shock- and water-resistant shell. It sports a 2.6 TFT QVGA main screen and a secondary 1.08-inch one-color LCD on the outside (for quick alerts and caller ID). In addition to those specs, the DuraXE is home to a 5-megapixel AF LED-flash camera, an expandable 8GB memory, and noise cancellation via a dual microphone setup. Its 1500mAh battery scores a 9.4-hour talk time and a 16-day maximum standby time.

#8. 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.

Hovering between the low- and middle-class Android categories (as of July 2016), the Pop 4's specs include a fingerprint sensor for phone locking/unlocking and file security, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera lugging a frontal flash, and a 5-inch HD-720p display with an oleophobic coating. It has a 13-megapixel primary camera at the back and also offers HD voice as well as 4G LTE web browsing. A 2500mAh battery, a 1.1GHz quad-core engine, and a 1.5GB RAM are among its hardware components, while an expandable 8GB memory is in charge of storage.

Average Rating:

Description:

The 2016 Studio X8 HD, although running on a high-ranking 1.4GHz octa-core MediaTek processor, comes with only basic specs, which include a 5-inch HD BLU Infinite View (IPS) screen, a 4GB memory with an up-to-64GB memory card support, and dual (front and back) 5-megapixel cameras. Despite its octa-core chip, it settles for a sub-par 512MB RAM and relies on no more than 2200mAh of power (its sales guide indicates only 2000mAh). It sports a polished front frame met by a perforated pattern on the rear.
