Coolest Smartphones in 2015, so far
The first half of 2015 has passed and we have seen releases of some excellent smartphones. In the latest generation, our phones become smarter, faster, bigger, stronger, get more powerful cameras and learned how to make us happier. And this was only the half of the story – the other half is coming up in the fall. We can’t wait to see what’s next in the smartphones industry.
In this review, we will remind you of the great models that we have seen, so far.
So, buckle up and get ready to start:
1. Samsung Galaxy S6
Of course, that we will start with Samsung Galaxy S6 – this is the phone that has excellent reviews and appears to be the best competitor of iPhone for the absolute throne. Samsung has put a lot of efforts to make this model a top of the line and they have made it. This smartphone is incredibly fast and powerful and on top of that it looks quite beautiful. It has the improved camera, an excellent display, decluttered Android 5.0 and a lot of extra features. All these traits combined make Samsung Galaxy S6 a real stunner.
Why do we like it? Simply because it’s so close to a perfection.
2. LG G4
What everybody wants out of a smartphone? To look great, to have a perfect display and to have a quality camera (especially the front camera for perfect selfies). LG G4 has it all. The new LG flagship model brings only a few updates compared to the LG G3 series, but they are all cleverly placed. Improved camera and display make this model quite refreshed and desirable for new users. The leather back side of the phone makes this model quite fancy and recognizable which is also a great user bait.
Why do we like it? Honestly, because it’s so classy and elegant.
3. Sony Xperia Z3+
Instead of releasing completely new generation of their flagship model Sony has wittily decided to launch an upgrade of previous Z3 model. Sony Xperia Z3+ is great for a new iteration, so this turns out to be a pretty smart move. Stronger chipset, more RAM and 32GB of storage space improved the core of the device. On the other hand, powerful front and back cameras backed up by Sony’s Handycam and Cybershot technologies makes this model quite a competitor on the smartphones market in this year.
Why do we like it? Honestly, because we are great fans of Sony 🙂 We can’t wait to see the new Z series model (Sony Xperia Z5). The rumor has it that the release date is expected by the end of the year!
4. HTC One M9
This model HTC One M9 is a proud successor of the great classic HTC One M8. The newcomer has inherited all the quality features from One M series (metal design, high-quality display, strong speakers). They are maximized now to give us better and comfier user experience. On top of that, the new model comes with microSD card support and sensible software. The camera still needs some love, but we can forgive you that, dear HTC.
Why do we like it? Naturally, because we loved M8.
5. Asus Zenfone 2
And now, a phone that brings some extra quality features to the table for less money. If you wish to have Android 5.0, clean UI, good performance and to save some money Asus Zenfone 2 can be a perfect match for you. You will have to sacrifice a few things (fancy design and hight quality camera), but you will have a very good smartphone in your hands. Asus is on the right track to join the big league. We hope that Zenfone is only the introduction and that the best is yet to come.
Why do we like it? Sincerely, because we wish to see Asus smartphones next to “big guys” models in the future.
6. Alcatel OneTouch
Last, but not least, a budget smartphone with a large screen, great outdoor images and a few other surprises that you would not expect from a phone like this. We will discover you one of the surprises – you can use it upside-down because it has speakers on both sides! Such a thing can come in handy in various situations. OneTouch is the best smartphone made in Alcatel. This model gives you the best value for the money you spend.
Why do we like it? Frankly, because this is the best budget smartphone out there.
These were the smartphones that made the strongest impression on us, each from the different reason. The smartphones that are yet to come have quite a serious task ahead of them – to outcome and be better than these models. We can’t wait to see what new iPhone, Lumia, Nexus, Galaxy Note, Huawei and others have prepared for us! So, hold on tight till the end of the year, the best is yet to come.
What are the best smartphones released this year in your opinion? Do you agree with our choice? Feel free to share your comments, we can’t wait to hear what you have to say!
