Nowadays, having a cell phone means carrying a mini computer with you everywhere you go. And when it comes to picking a smartphone, you get what you pay for. So how do you know which smartphone has the features that best fit your lifestyle? We’ve answered some the top questions consumers ask when looking for their next mobile device.
Which smartphone has the largest screen?
|The phone that takes the award for the largest screen is the Samsung Galaxy Mega. The Mega has a whopping 6.3-inch screen with 720p resolution. According to Mashable, “The specs of the Mega are about equivalent to any midrange smartphone. It has a 1,280 x 720 screen, a dual-core 1.7GHz processor, and an 8-megapixel camera. It’s powered by Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean software, and internal storage is 16GB (which you can augment with a microSD card).”|
Which smartphone has the best battery life?
|Never heard of the Huawei Ascend Mate 2? Don’t worry; many people haven’t. That doesn’t mean it isn’t a decent phone, though. The Mate 2 wins this round as the smartphone with the best battery life. Coming in at almost 15 hours, this unknown hero isn’t likely to die before your day is done. Tom’s Guide battery test consists of constant web usage over 4G LTE. That means that this isn’t 15 hours of standby; it’s constant usage. At $299 without any contract, this is a dream for anyone who’s glued to their phone most of the day.|
Which smartphone has the best camera?
|No, the best camera doesn’t belong to the phone with 41 megapixels. Contrary to popular belief, more pixels doesn’t always equal better camera quality. The iPhone 6s Plus has the best overall camera quality according to Tom’s Guide. Sticking with a 12 MP camera (less than many in the “highest MP” race), Apple has decided to increase both the megapixels and the quality of the photos being taken. According to Tom’s Guide, the iPhone takes “…bright, colorful pictures with high contrast and clear details” and is the best at capturing skin tones.|
Which smartphone has the best screen?
|A big win goes to the Samsung Galaxy S6. The screen on this phone is absolutely amazing. 5.1-inch 2560 × 1440 AMOLED screen shows crisp colors and easy-to-read text. The S6 is even an improvement on the OLED of the S5. The stunning resolution, lower power draw and adaptive display (contrary to a singular display mode offered by most smartphones) make this AMOLED screen a slam dunk. Move over, LCDs; OLED is the new big wig in town.|
Which smartphone has the most customization options?
|This one isn’t even a competition. If you pride yourself on being unique and want to customize everything you own, the Moto X is for you. Using Motorola’s “Moto Maker,” customers can make their phone as much to their taste as they’d like. With their customization options, you can change the front (choice between black or white), the back (colors, wood grain, etc.), and even the accent colors on the buttons and the rear, near the camera. If you want to make sure everyone knows it’s yours, you can also get (up to) a 14-letter engraving put on it.|
Which smartphone has the best operating system?
|People will argue this one endlessly. Certain “loyal customers” will always say that theirs is the best, whether it is or not. It’s a much-debated topic, so we wrote IOS vs Android: Which Has S’more To Love?|
Which smartphone have the best speakers?
|Unfortunately for some, sound is one of the factors that is largely overlooked when making a phone. If you like to play songs, videos, etc., straight from phone (sans headphones) you’ll want a phone with amazing speakers. The HTC One M9 wins this round, with its two front speakers that push out amazing quality and high volume music.|
Which smartphone has the fastest processor?
|What’s the fastest smartphone in the world? The iPhone 6S takes the cake in that field. Through tests done by Toms Guide, the iPhone 6S came in first place overall. Out of all six of the phones (all Android except for the iPhone 6S), 6S came in first in six out of eight tests. These tests included both real world and synthetic speed tests.|
Which smartphone has the most storage?
|High storage phones are a little easier to come by. Even though phones with expandable memory are rarer than they used to be, there are still a ton of them to come by. If you’re looking for the maximum amount of storage, your best bet will be literally any phone that can support a micro SD card. Maybe you’ll even be able to afford to put 200 GB of storage for it.|
