Top 10 Smartphones of 2016
Cellphones change all the time, but some brands and series in particular standout and have become household names. The fight between Apple and Android continues on, but even within those groups there is still competition. Here are 5 of the best smart phones of 2016, in no particular order.
1. Apple iPhone 7 Plus:
If you are looking for a high end phone, the Apple iPhone series is always at the top of their game. The Plus versions are the top of that. This phone is rather impressive. With a 2.33GHz processor, it is one of the fastest out there. It has dual 12MP rear camera, and 7MP front facing. So, if you are looking to take pictures or video chat it has you covered. The biggest downfall with this is that they got rid of the standard audio jack for your headphones. For some, that may be a deal breaker if they are really tied to them.
2. Samsung Galaxy S7 Active:
In general, the Samsung Galaxy S series is the competition to the Apple iPhone on the Android side. They offer a lot of similar options. The Samsung Galaxy S7 has a 2.2GHz processor. Similar to the Apple iPhone 7 Plus, you have a 12MP camera on the rear, but single and not dual, and you have a 5MP front facing camera. The battery life for the active is where it really shines with 10.5 hours of battery life, compared to the Apple iPhone 7 Plus with 6 hours. The testing is with video streaming on an LTE network, not standby time.
3. Motorola Moto Z Force Droid:
To round out our high end offers. Motorola Moto Z Force Droid, Droid for short, is Motorola’s high end phone. As the name suggests, it runs an Android operating system. The processor comes in at 2.26 GHz, so a little between the Galaxy S7 and the iPhone 7 Plus. What really sets this phone apart is its camera. You get a 21MP rear camera and a 5MP front facing camera. It is a power hours as far as digital photography is concerned. Like the Apple iPhone 7 Plus, there is no headphone jack, you will need Bluetooth to help you out, but it does offer an SD card slot to hold all the pictures that you will be taking.
4. iPhone SE:
As far as discount phones go this year, Apple offers its SE series of phone. It cruises in with a 1.89GHz processor, not too shabby. It is cute in its size, being only 4 inches big. The rear facing camera is the same 12MP, but only singular, but the front facing camera is only 1.7MP, which makes it a little low for video chatting. Overall, for the price it isn’t a bad phone.
5. Blue Life One X:
To round off our smartphones, lets go for a truly cheap one. At less than $150, you can get yourself a brand new Blue Life One X, from Amazon. This is running on an older Android operating system, 5.1. It has only 1.3GHz of processing power, but outdoes the Samsung Galaxy S7 series with having a 13MP rear camera, matched with a standard 5MP front facing camera. Where this phone really starts to drop is with battery. The battery could only handle 4 hours and 4 minutes worth of LTE video streaming.
