In 2015, have you ever purchased one or some mobiles or tablets? There are lots of devices released at MWC, CES, or some conferences like those in 2015. Every company must release one or two or even more flagship products every year but they may not be the best phones among so many smartphones. I'd like to share some top Android cellphones with their features, design, etc.
Galaxy Note and S would release their masterpieces at the different time in the same year. In 2015, Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge appeared in April. Even though the poor battery lifespan is still a big problem, but its nice design and fingerprint scanner attract many Samsung fans. To know more, check part of its details as following and the comparison among Galaxy S6, S6 Edge and S6 Edge Plus would be displayed also.
Galaxy S6 Edge and Edge+ bring a big surprise to us and as for me, the edge design is really special and it gains me comfortable feelings when touching them. In brief, Samsung is trying to optimize the products for users' needs.
Google Nexus always brings the new version of Android to us every year, such as Android 6.0 comes with Nexus 5X and 6P which are released in Sept. 2015. Actually, 6P is made by HUAWEI and it gives us lots of positive feelings. Build quality, camera and its purest Android OS have been appreciated by many users. Some features about this smartphone are listed as following: Screen: 5.7 inches with 1440 x 2560 pixels Memory: 32/64/128 GB, 3 GB RAM Camera: 12.3 MP(rear)+8 MP(front) Battery: 3450 mAh Features: Fingerprint, accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, barometer Price: $499.99 at Google Store
Nexus once became a hot point since the first generation made by HTC came out, but afterward, it is in decline while the sale of 6P performs well even though some shortcomings still exit.
Samsung Galaxy Note 5
Samsung had posed its flagship product in August, 2015, and that is Galaxy Note 5 which is designed with outstanding display and a satisfying camera. However, it is also doubted by some people for its speaker and it slippery glass. There are some parameters of this Note 5 with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop as below. Screen: 5.7 inches with 1440 x 2560 pixels Memory: 32/64/128 GB, 4 GB RAM Camera: 16 MP(rear)+5 MP(front) Battery: 3000mAh Features: Fingerprint, accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, barometer, heart rate, SpO2; Wireless charging Price: $624.00 at Amazon
Galaxy Note had been the representive works of Samsung, such as Note 4/5 which lures numerous consumers. There is no doubt that settings and functions of Note 5 are generally great but due to the price, some features only suitable for businessmen, etc., more and more people change to buy A and J series which is cheaper.
Moto X Pure Edition
This Motorola device is also named Moto X Style and it came out in the same month as the released time of Nexus 6P. Moto attempted to improve the functions of camera and it did but it takes a little long time to get ready to capture while few complaints arise from other aspects. OS: Android 5.1.1 Lollipop Screen: 5.7 inches with 1440 x 2560 pixels (520 ppi) Memory: 3 GB RAM, 16/32/64 GB (support 128GB SD card) Camera: 21 MP(rear)+5 MP(front); 4K video capture Battery: 3000mAh Features: Fast battery charging: 34% in 15 min; Advanced water protection Price: $399.99 (16GB) at Amazon
This Moto mobile seems to be proper for the photo-taking lovers because of its high resolution. I am keen on its water protection but is it practical? As lots of mobile are said that they can prevent water damaged, few of them are useful. Hope this function would be pleasing.
Generally, most of mobile companies attempted to improve its design and materials so lots of flagship smartphones are made of metal in the shell or frame, but LG still applied the regular plastic backs. Even though it cannot surprise us, its premium leather back is also wonderful. What should be appreciated is its quick performance and user-friendly camera. How does it work with its parameter? OS: Android 5.1 Lollipop Screen: 5.5 inches with 1440 x 2560 pixels (520 ppi) Memory: 32 GB, 3 GB RAM (support 128GB SD card) Camera: 16 MP(rear)+8 MP(front) Battery: 3000mAh Features: Accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, barometer, color spectrum;
Fast battery charging: 60% in 30 min Price: $393.99 at Amazon
For LG G4, it is almost the same as other LG devices in its body design. On the one hand, the home button is set on the back of the cellphone. If you haven't used LG before, you must be confused about the position of the home button. On the other hand, the material of the shell is made of plastic not the metal, but it is said that LG G5 may be different.
HTC One A9
Besides Nexus 6P and 5X, HTC One A9 is set with Android Marshmallow and came to the public in November in 2015. Until now, metal design of HTC has a big appeal to some users, especially some businessmen. As the release of One A9, we can conclude HTC is trying to update its devices. OS: Android 6.0 Marshmallow Screen: 5.0 inches with 1080 x 1920 pixels Memory: 16 GB, 2 GB RAM/32 GB, 3 GB RAM (support microSD, up to 200 GB) Camera: 13 MP(rear)+4 MP(front) Battery: 2150 mAh Features: Fingerprint, accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass;
Fast battery charging (Quick Charge 2.0, 3.0) Price: $489.49(32 GB) at Amazon
Compared with others, HTC lags behind in battery capacity. In fact, I have seen some friend comment on Facebook about the issue that what your care most about your smartphone. Batttery is voted by a lot of users. Thus, HTC should make progress in this way.
Sony Xperia Z3+
Sony Xperia is friendly when using in taking photos due to its fantastic camera. That is why so many people are willing to buy Xperia. Z3+, actually can be called Z4 which is canceled and replaced by this Z3 Plus. Its four colors: white, black, copper, aqua green, and design make the body look fashion so that the young generation may be the large target Sony. Details of such fashionable cellphone can be known here. OS: Android 5.0 Lollipop Screen: 5.2 inches with 1080 x 1920 pixels Memory: 32 GB, 3 GB RAM (support micro SD, up to 128 GB) Camera: 20.7 MP(rear)+5.1 MP(front) Battery: 2930 mAh Features: Accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, barometer;
Fast battery charging (60% in 30 min) Price: $432.99 at Amazon
What I love Xperia is its camera and it leads me into a simple and comfortable screen. I think it is proper for some female users to create beautiful pictures.
Frankly, there are many settings and functions on those device, but half of them would be ignored since not all features can be useful for every one and even when we use them, we don't know how and when they run. Camera, display, body design, memory and battery are what most users care so that those released smartphones recently aims to develop the masterpiece in these aspects. However, if they would like to surprise the customers and take up relatively larger quota of mobile market, creative idea is a must. Let's look forward to the nicer Android works, e.g.: Galaxy S7/S7 Edge, Moto X/G (4th), LG G5, Xperia Z5, HTC One M10/A10, etc. in 2016.
