1. SAMSUNG GALAXY S6
OS: Android 5 | Screen size: 5.1-inch | Resolution: 1440 x 2560 | Memory: 3GB |Storage:32GB/64GB/128GB | Battery: 2550mAh | Rear camera: 16MP | Front camera: 5MP
The camera, the audio and video quality are really chimerical. Samsung’s gone bold on the design of the Galaxy S6, taking away the usual plastic covering that festooned previous models and finally stepping into the world of metal for its flagships.
Samsung has always had brilliant screen technology, and once again, that’s the case on the Samsung Galaxy S6. The Super AMOLED display offers clear, crisp whites against pure blacks, meaning even dark scenes are shown off perfectly.
The 5.1-inch display now packs more pixels than ever before – 1440 x 2560 in fact, which matches the Galaxy Note 4 but with a higher PPI of 577 – which means you’re looking at the sharpest display on the market.
Even though they are more expensive to buy outright, just remember that if you are looking for a true A-grade experience than choose this one for 2015.
2. iPHONE 6S
OS: iOS 9 | Screen size: 4.7-inch | Resolution: 1334 x 750 | RAM: 2GB |Storage:16GB/64GB/128GB | Battery: 1,715mAh | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 5MP
What can you say about iPhone? The battery life is actually a little shorter and it’s the biggest issue with the phone. Nonetheless, it’s still a brilliant iPhone. So to all Apple iPhone lovers out there, this is the one to add to your possible collection.
According to Sam from Phone Repairs Sydney, the iPhone is getting better every year and along with this the side markets such as phone repairs , accessories etc are also getting bigger.
3. SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 5
OS: Android 5.1.1 | Screen size: 5.7-inch | Resolution: 2560 x 1440 | Memory: 4GB | Storage: 32GB/64GB | Battery: 3,020mAh | Rear camera: 16MP | Front camera: 5MP
Stunning screen, outstanding camera, and a bonus S Pen are all delivered in style. While the Note handsets have always been on the less expensive side, the Note 5’s beautiful glass and metal chassis have a far more premium feel than the plastic offered by the Galaxy Note 4.
4. LG G4
OS: Android 5.1 | Screen size: 5.5-inch | Resolution: 2560 x 1440 | Memory: 3GB | Storage: 32GB | Battery: removable 3,000mAh | Rear camera: 16MP | Front camera: 8MP
Luxury leather on a smartphone that tries to please everyone, but it doesn’t quite deliver as impressively as LG or avid users had hoped. The leather back is much nicer than the plastic option, and it will make your mobile stand out among the rest. As a complete package, it offers more than the Xperia Z3 and One M9, but it doesn’t quite match the slickness and the design of the iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6.
5. IPHONE 6S PLUS
OS: iOS 9 | Screen size: 5.5-inch | Resolution: 1920 x 1080 | RAM: 2GB |Storage: 16GB/64GB/128GB | Battery: around 2750mAh | Rear camera: 12MP |Front camera: 5MP
This phone is a larger sized version of the iPhone 6S. Full HD screen and the camera on the back features an optical image stablisation. The best thing that has always perplexed us is the amazing battery life. If you’re an Apple fan looking for a ‘bigger’ experience, this phone is the keeper.
6. SAMSUNG GALAXY 6S EDGE
OS: Android 5 | Screen size: 5.1-inch | Resolution: 1440 x 2560 | Memory: 3GB |Storage:32GB/64GB/128GB | Battery: 2560mAh | Rear camera: 16MP | Front camera: 5MP
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge has all the power and features of the S6, but includes a little extra, thanks to the curved edges on its sides. They don’t add a huge amount of functionality, but if you’re going on looks alone, the S6 Edge is the one to go for. If you’re after a phone that’s insanely different, this should be your choice.
7. SONY XPERIA Z3 COMPACT
OS: Android 5 | Screen size: 4.6-inch | Resolution: 1280 x 720 | Memory: 2GB | Storage: 16GB |Battery: 2,600mAh | Rear camera: 20.7MP | Front camera: 2.2MP
Don’t judge this phone on looks alone, it’s packed with big features, less powerful with a lower-res screen than its bigger brother. The 4.6-inch display makes the Z3 Compact one of the best phones to hold and use in day to day life and it has an outstanding long-lasting battery too. The Z3 Compact is the best of Sony in a smartphone. If that’s what you’re after, this is the phone to go for. The ergonomics and the price impress, and while it doesn’t quite have the spec sheet of the main Z3, the Compact feels more polished.
8. HTC ONE M9
OS: Android 5 | Screen size: 5-inch | Resolution: 1920×1080 | Memory: 3GB |Storage: 32GB |Battery:2840mAh | Rear camera: 20.7MP | Front camera: 4MP
Not quite up the 5 star standard, but HTC is arguably still the most beautiful phone around. HTC was sitting comfortably at the top of our charts for the last couple of years, and while it’s not quite managed it in 2015, the M9 is still a phone with the best build quality out there. It’s a bit more expensive than before, and doesn’t take a huge leap forward from last year’s model.
9. SONY XPERIA Z3
OS: Android 5 | Screen size: 5.15-inch | Resolution: 1920 x 1080 | Memory: 3GB | Storage: 16GB/32GB | Battery: 3,100mAh | Rear camera: 20.7MP | Front camera: 2.2MP
With a good screen and excellent battery life this solid phone offers the best of Sony with some really polished tweaks thrown in for good measure. We do expect more from the camera, and the black bezels above and below the display ruin the aesthetic somewhat, but the ability to Remote Play your PS4 makes up for it. It’s a really cool feature and means you can keep gaming while someone else is hogging the TV. The Z3 is a brilliant phone with a few rough edges.
10. NEXUS 6
OS: Android 5 | Screen size: 5.96-inch | Resolution: 2560 x 1440 | Memory: 3GB | Storage: 32GB/64GB | Battery: 3,220mAh | Rear camera: 13MP | Front camera: 2MP
This one is Google’s best and biggest phone ever. The Nexus is massive at 6 inches, it also has a stunning QHD resolution. You’ll always receive the latest updates to Google’s Android OS with this one, and while it’s certainly something you’d have to use two handed, its colossal display, premium specs and great use of Android 5.0 Lollipop make the Nexus 6 one of the best to date. It’s not cheap, but it’s the best Nexus ever made.
