Nobody wants to be carting around a phone that won’t be getting any updates in a year’s time. So whether its one of the many slick Android handsets, the latest Iphone or from a range of other cool operating systems, these phones have been extremely tested so you don’t have to.
Here are the rankings for the best smartphones around.
10) ONE PLUS 2
The good news is the Oneplus two has repeated that trick, upgrading the internals which (mostly ) keeping the same low price. Its clever overlay still impresses and the little tweaks (such as audio improvement) work quite nicely.

None of the old favorites are missing, so boom sound enhancement still really turbo charges the audii and the sense overlay remains one of our favorites, thanks to being sophisticated and really powerful.
The camera has beeb boosted to 20.7mp, although doesn’t have the impressive snapping power of some of the other phones on the market, and the design language still means this is one of our favorite phones to stick in the pocket.
OS: ANDROID 5.1/ SCREEN SIZE: 5-INCH/ RESOLUTION : 1920×1080/ RAM:3GB/ STORAGE : 32GB/ BATTERY: 2840mAh/ REAR CAMERA: 20.7MP/ FRONT CAMERA : 4MP
8) NEXUS 6PThe bigger of the two new Nexus phones is a phone that can entice you in many ways. Perhaps you’ll like the vivid QHD display, which is more compact this year to offer a sharper resolution when watching movies or browsing the web.
Its not super cheap like the old Nexus phones but its very well made and thanks to the improved camera and battery capabilities.
OS:ANDROID 6/ SCREEN SIZE:5.7INCH/ RESOLUTION :2560×1440/ RAM: 3GB/ STORAGE : 32GB/64GB/124GB/ BATTERY： 3,450mAh/REAR CAMERA :12.3MP/FRONT CAMERA :8MP
7) SAMSUNG GALAXY S6 EDGE+The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is one of our favorite phones around at the moment. The S6 is a phone that takes all the great camera prowess, amazing screen and beautiful lines and adds another 20% into the mix.
OS:ANDROID 5.1/ SCREEN SIZE: 5.7 INCH/ RESOLUTION : 1440×2560/ RAM:4GB/STORAGE :32GB/64GB/BATTERY:3000mAh/ REAR CAMERA : 16MP/FRONT CAMERA :5MP
On one hand, this is just a larger Iphone 6s. Thats no bad thing, as the phone is one of the best around at the moment. But this second Apple phablet has a number of elements that make it a great phone in its own right.
The screen is full HD and really packs some stunning color reproduction. The camera on the back features optical image stabilization, which means better low light video and photography.
OS: IOS 9/ SCREEN SIZE:5.5INCH/ RESOLUTION : 1920×1080/RAM:2GB/ STORAGE :16GB/64GB/128GB/ BATTERY: AROUND 2750mAh/ REAR CAMERA :12MP/FRONT CAMERA : 5MP
The large 5.2 inch screen looks great thanks to Bravis technology, and the camera has undergone some big changes with a 23mp sensor and new autofocus technology.

3) SAMSUNG GALAXY S6 EDGEThe Samsung Galaxy S6 has all the power and features of the table-topping S6 (amazing camera, stunning power, absorbing screen), but does it with a little extra too, thanks to the curved edges on each side.
OS:ANDROID 5/ SCREEN SIZE: 5.1-INCH/ RESOLUTION : 1440×2560/RAM:3GB/ STORAGE: 2 32GB/64GB/128GB/ BATTERY:2560mAh/ REAR CAMERA: 16MP/ FRONT CAMERA: 5MP
There’s a lot going on with the LG G4, and for the most part its rather positive indeed. The leather back is much nicer than the plastic option, and it will make tour phone stand out among the swath of glass and metal offerings.
OS:ANDROID 5.1/SCREEN SIZE :5.5-INCH/ RESOLUTION :2560×1440/ RAM:3GB/STORAGE:35GB/BATTERY:REMOVABLE 3,000mAh/ REAR CAMERA:16MP/ FRONT CAMERA: 8MP
The camera is superb, the audio and video quality brilliant and the QHD display crammed into the 5.1inch screen is the sharpest on the market.
The design is finally something we’re pleased to hold in our hand, rather than the plastic cheapness of last year, and the refined Touchwiz overlay is a lot nicer to use.
