#1.

#1. iPhone 6S
Average Stars Awarded:
Analysis:

Following Apple's S-version tradition, the iPhone 6S rocks a few tweaks over the base model, but no major overhauls... (more)

What We Noted:

  • Performance: The iPhone 6S claims an up-to-70% more efficient task-handling performance with its 64-bit A9 CPU (M9 coprocessor), as opposed to the iPhone 6 with its A8 chip
  • Design: it offers a Rose Gold color option this time, primarily so that users can match their purchase to an iWatch of the same color
  • Special: it introduces the 3D Touch pressure-sensitive display technology, which recognizes inputs based on how hard you press the screen
  • Imaging: it finally upgrades the iPhone's main camera resolution from 8 megapixels (sported by the previous three models) to 12, which incidentally boasts a 4K video capability






#2.

#2. iPhone 6S Plus
Average Stars Awarded:
Analysis:

Boasting pros like a 3D Touch technology (pressure-sensing screen) (+), a 12-megapixel 4K-video camera with True Tone flash (+), and a 64-bit A9 CPU with an M9 coprocessor on its chip (+), the iPhone 6S Plus is the most capable iPhone as of its release... (more)

Noteworthy:

  • Performance: The iPhone 6S Plus supplants the iPhone 6 Plus's A8 chip for an A9 CPU with an inbuilt M9 motion coprocessor, which as of its release, is Apple's most capable mobile processor
  • Special: it introduces 3D Touch (unofficially known as Force Touch), a pressure-sensing display technology that apparently facilitates a more accurate tactile feedback from the screen
  • Imaging: it escapes the 8-megapixel limitation of the previous four iPhones with its 4K-video-recording 12-megapixel True Tone flash camera

#3. Samsung Galaxy S6
Average Stars Awarded:
Analysis:

Not having the dual-edged screen (+) might be a minor con against its Edge sibling, but the Samsung Galaxy S6 still comes with a premium-class array of pros and cons... (more)

Noteworthy:

  • Performance: The Samsung Galaxy S6 runs on a 14nm octa-core processor with 64-bit architecture that is likely more efficient compared to conventional 20nm chips
  • Special: it combines the eMMC (smartphones) and SSD (PCs) memory types to create its Universal Flash Storage 2.0, promising faster data transfer speeds than older storage technologies
  • Imaging: it boasts one of the most capable back-facing cameras among Samsung flagships at 16 megapixels, with Optical Image Stabilization and Tracking AF among its options
  • Connectivity: it promises up to 620Mbps data rates on 4G LTE Cat6, which is one of the fastest speeds you can get out of a smartphone

#4.

#4. Samsung Galaxy S7
Average Stars Awarded:
Analysis:

Just like LG's MWC 2016 G5 flagship, Samsung's Galaxy S7 runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 2.1GHz + 1.6GHz quad-core processor (+) (for US and most western markets) with 4G of LPDDR4 RAM (+), though they did not come without a couple of minor cons... (more)

What We Noted:

  • Special: it has two photodiodes on its pixels (instead of one) through the Dual Pixel camera technology, which means that its 12-megapixel camera potentially focuses quicker and more-accurately than conventional solutions
  • Connectivity: it promises up to 450Mbps maximum data speeds on LTE Cat 9 networks, which is blazing fast when compared to the 300Mbps and 150Mbps max data rates scored by many of its rivals

#5.

#5. ZTE Allstar LTE
Average Stars Awarded:
Analysis:

While it boldly claims to be an allstar, this prepaid pitch from ZTE does looks more like a has-been to us, especially with cons like a 1GB-only RAM (-) and a run-of-the-mill 1.2GHz quad-core engine (-) among its specs... (more)

Worth mentioning:

#6.

#6. LG 237C
Average Stars Awarded:
Analysis:

Coming to the prepaid market with a pretty mundane, yet practical array of pros and cons, the LG 237C sounds like a passable phone for senior users... (more)

What We Noted:

#7.

#7. Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime
Average Stars Awarded:
Analysis:

Its Grand name might be a bit too ambitious, as the Galaxy Grand Prime runs on pretty typical mid-range hardware: 1.2GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 2600mAh battery... (more)

Worth mentioning:

  • Imaging: it sports an 85-degree wide-angle 5-megapixel front-facing camera (most others have 70-degree cams), which might capture more of your selfie scenes
  • Connectivity: it lacks LTE connectivity, which is somehow surprising since other Grand models have offered 4G LTE earlier in 2014

Fifth generation Samsung flagship smartphone with a 16-megapixel camera, a special power-saving mode and a 2.5Ghz 4-core CPU.

What We Noted:

What We Noted:

  • Performance: The Samsung Galaxy A3 is equipped with Samsung's signature Ultra Power Saving Mode, promising to extend battery life when running on low power levels

The Alcatel Pop Icon does not seem to pack anything special... (more)
