Average Star 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.

#2. The Sony Xperia Z5 Compact

Sony's Xperia Z5 Compact takes some hits to its display (4.6-inch HD) and RAM (2GB), but it similarly gives you access to a 23-megapixel pulsed LED flash camera with hybrid autofocus, a Snapdragon 810 processing chip (64-bit octa-core), and LTE Cat 6 networks -- up to 300Mbps download speeds. Its power key stealthily hides a fingerprint scanner, while the rest of its fuselage is made waterproof and dust-tight by its IP65/68 rugged certifications.

Filling up its low-end specs list are a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel selfie cam, and a 2050mAh battery.

#4. The Samsung Galaxy Express Prime

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.

  • 1.3GHz Samsung Exynos 3475 processing.
  • 16000MB of total user memory.
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.

#5. 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.

Smartphone-related specs

  • 128000MB total user memory.
  • iOS 9 operating system.
