The year that just ended, 2015 was full of launches of smartphones that are more or less attractive. Those who were looking for a new mobile device were given a large variety of phones to choose from. Today we present the top 5 smartphones flagship which have enjoyed great attention from both the buyers and the online publications.
5. LG G4
LG G3 was one of the phones that have attracted attention in 2014. It shattered the competition by using its specifications. In 2015, the company focused on refinement, but not on improving the hardware, while still being an enviable smartphone. LG has adopted a different tactic for LG G4, it came with an aluminum chassis and glass. In addition, it opted for a natural leather on the back cover. LG wanted to achieve with this decision a unique design for its customers.
4. HTC One M9
HTC One M9 is fantastic, but if you weigh what made HTC with this new model, which comes as an upgrade for the M8, alongside Samsung, we see that there aren’t enough improvements to ranked it in the top three.
However, for those who do not own the One (M8) smartphone and want an upgrade, One M9 is the appropriate device. It has an excellent design with a two-tone finish and comes with a 5-inch Full HD impeccable display (1920 × 1080). The only improvement made by HTC is signifying to the camera, giving up ultrapixel configuration for a 20.7 MP sensor that performs much better than the previous version. Octa-Core Snapdragon 810 processor is equally impressive, being beaten in tests only by Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.
3. Huawei P8
Huawei had a strong year and is the top among Chinese producers. Preparing devices for high end market, the company changed the P8 style, featuring everything you want from a high end smartphone, and some things you did not know you needed.
Its 13 MP camera was a pleasant surprise, more specifically, the feature that allows pictures with light. Therefore, for users who want more than occasional selfies, Huawei P8 is highly appreciated. Overall, this device is an important step forward for Huawei. We wait to see what will come in the new year.
2. Apple iPhone 6S
In 2015, Apple has opted for an S model as a flagship device. While some people are not attracted by Apple editions, the Cupertino company often eliminates the problems of its predecessor and adds some new elements that the company wants to test out. Apple iPhone 6S is no different, this taking part of refining and calibration of several elements, while adding more.
A new feature is Force Touch that offers a new way to interact with applications and features of the smartphone. While this idea is interesting, not yet fully achieved. We should wait and see what will iPhone 7 offer.
1. Samsung Galaxy S6
South Korean manufacturer has been criticized for using plastics in Galaxy S5 design in 2014. Thus it was decided to raise the bar for the following devices. The plastic was replaced with metal and glass, comprising one of the best devices from Samsung. While the upper and lower side frame relies heavily on Apple’s design.
