Are you considering upgrading your phone over the Christmas and New Year period? Here are five of the most popular mobile phones in 2016.
Here’s why you should consider getting one of the phones mentioned below:
iPhone 7 plus
Despite its hefty price tag, Apple has created a very good phone with lots of pluses, however like everything it’s not without its minuses.
If you want to listen to music or watch videos on your phone, while charging it at the same time, this is a no go. The iPhone 7 Plus only allows you to you one of these at the same time because there is no headphone jack and you probably won’t want to purchase an adaptor at an extra cost.
The iPhone 7 Plus does have its advantages which include the fact that you can easily tell this phone apart from its predecessors because it comes with two cameras on its rear.
The phone also comes with a new feature the IP67 rating for the iPhone Plus, which means this model is both dust-proof and water-resistant.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
This Samsung Galaxy is Samsung’s answer to the iPhone. The design is a lot more stylish than previous Samsung mobile phones with its new metal and glass build, and curved display makes this phone more stylish than ever and able to compete with Apple. The Samsung phone is also IP68 water resistant and available in two colours, black and gold.
The new IP68 rating means that you can dunk the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge into one metre of water for up to 30 minutes without damaging the phone. If you take it out of your bag or pocket in the rain or, listen to music in the bath you can use your phone without worrying about getting it wet.
Google Pixel XL
The Google Pixel XL is a great phone to use and has a fantastic camera; This Android phone has the smoothest pixel screen and its loading times matched the iPhone 7 When tested against other phones.
This phone doesn’t quite match the speed of the Samsung Galaxy S7, according to the benchmark tests. However, this phone still offers good user experience.
Apple has managed to fit a huge amount of features into the phone considering it’s a small phone. It looks like the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 5S; the only difference is that you can get this model in a rose-gold colour and its cut edges are matte and not the usual shiny chrome.
The design, screen and sound quality aren’t very different to its predecessors; however, the one thing that does excite Apple Fans is the quality of the camera.
The Huawei is a great phone. However, when TechRadar tested its battery, they found that it still wasn’t good enough to compete with phone giants Apple and Samsung.
The Chinese manufacturers have a reputation for producing high-end specs for lower prices than its higher-end competitors. The Huawei P9 was one of the most popular phones of 2016.
Huawei has now teamed up with Superman (Henry Cavill) to star in their ad campaign in a bid to boost their mobile phone sales, however, they still have a way to go because no one buys a phone from a manufacturer who they hardly know. The P9 has good specs and are hoping that this phone’s camera technology will convert Apple and Samsung customers into Huawei customers.
