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...

What We Like:

  • As of its release, fingerprint authentication is all the rage among premium-class smartphones
  • Its 3D Touch technology is an ultra-high-end spec if we've ever seen one
  • Its Live Photos option, which animates completely-still captures, is quite an interesting mechanism
  • Many users might be glad to know that Apple finally bids goodbye to the 8-megapixel camera via the 6S's 12-megapixel 4K main cam

Description:

Kicking off a flagship family outside of LG's G-series, the 5.7-inch QHD V10 introduces a few innovative technologies...

What We Like:

  • 2TB's worth of memory outstrips the capacity of most modern-day personal computers
  • Before the V10's dual-lens 5-megapixel selfie cam, we have only seen the dual camera setup on primary rear cameras
  • Having a small quick-access display on top of its premium 5.7-inch QHD IPS Quantum screen is quite a promising facet
  • The MIL-STD-810G-certified shock-proof Dura Guard frame is nice to have on a phone with its level of technology

Description:

The MWC 2015 marks Samsung's unveiling of their 6th Galaxy-S flagship, which lists several innovations under the Korean brand's belt...

What We Like:

  • Corning's Gorilla Glass 4 anti-scratch technology debuts with this device
  • Its inbuilt wireless charging capability is the first of its kind
  • Its relatively small 14nm 64-bit CPU chip might translate to a smoother performance compared to previous Samsung flagships

  • Having an app suite dedicated to privacy and phone management (DTEK) sounds quite handy
