  • The gorgeous Galaxy S7 Edge makes the best Android phone that much better.


  • Pricing wasn’t particularly on the side of the Galaxy S6 edge last year, mainly because for a phone that matched the S6 on paper, its added $100 premium cost on top of the S6 didn’t seem justifiable. Not surprisingly, though, the S7 edge’s pricing follows the same strategy by being accompanied with an additional $100 cost over what most of the domestic carriers will be selling the S7 for.


  • Five stars to Samsung, as the brand iterates perfectly on an already award-winning smartphone, adding a brilliant camera and gorgeous design.


  • Question marks hang over this phone’s modular capabilities, but that aside this is still a high quality smartphone with plenty to recommend it


  • With an improved battery swapping system, the LG G5 isn't a bad phone, per se. But various other features probably looked better in the R&D lab than they do in real life.


  • At the end of the review process, we're feeling kind of empty in that we can't quite place our finger on what it is that isn't feeling exactly right with the G5. Objectively, it's a competent flagship and even a decent improvement over its predecessor in some ways, but it feels like it's just way too round in character.


  • Just like the original, the iPhone 6S Plus is the big-scale Apple phone for the kind of user who uses two hands and isn't bothered about the weight or space needed to fit one into their pocket. Although most S upgrades bring minor tweaks, the iPhone 6S Plus sees notable advantages from 3D Touch. Whether that's to write on that large screen, or by hard-pressing to interact with iOS 9 in a slicker and quicker fashion than before, it's the S model to buck the annual trend.


  • - Everything great about the iPhone is even greater here, because big screens rule.


  • The iPhone 6S is full of genuinely new and useful features, including the excellent 3D Touch, the powerful A9 chip and a greatly improved camera. Combined with the excellent iOS 9 operating system, the combination adds up to the best high-end smartphone that you can buy if you're already sold on iOS. Anyone running an iPhone 5S or older should upgrade to this phone (or its smaller sibling, the iPhone 6S); if you’ve got an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, however, the reasons to upgrade aren’t quite as compelling, and you might want to wait until the iPhone 7 is released.


  • Google's Nexus 6P is easier to hold and easier on your wallet, compared to the Nexus 6 from a year ago. New features, like a fingerprint sensor, reversible USB-C port and a better camera, are the selling points for this all-metal Android phablet.


  • The bigger of this year's two Nexus handsets seems like a dream on paper, with premium build quality, top-tier specs and access to the latest software updates straight from Google. Most importantly, Google finally has made a big phone that's comfortable to use with one hand. It's great for die-hard Android enthusiasts, but we're all spoiled for choice this year and the Nexus 6P doesn't do much to outshine the competition.


  • - Hell, it’s the best Android phone ever.
    - Android apps, generally speaking, aren't as good as iOS apps.
    - The 6P is slim and polished, more carefully created and assembled than any Nexus before.
    - It’s still among the best low-light smartphone cameras, but it’s not reinventing any wheels here.


  • It's not every day that such a complete and coherent smartphone comes to market. Perhaps more thoroughly than any other time, though, this year's iPhone 6s has become the center of so much technological advancement, that it's able to gain a surprising amount of lead against its counterparts.That is not to say the Apple iPhone 6s is necessarily the best in each and every department; rather, it means there doesn't seem to be an area where it comes off as incompetent.


  • The Apple iPhone 6s is faster than last year's model all around, including better AT&T LTE speeds.

  • Rating Unavailable

    The iPhone 6s is of excellent build, made out of a much sturdier aluminum alloy. The extra weight can be felt, but it's certainly not a deal breaker.
    The display on the iPhone 6s is pretty much the same affair we got in the original 6th model. It offers slightly lower brightness, but deeper blacks and the same great contrast. The sunlight legibility is great as well.
    Battery life is above average at 62 hours and matches that of the iPhone 6. The iPhone 6S posted well balanced scores across all tests, including standby.


Other candidates for the best cellphones for girls

The big change that we would see in 2016 with respect to smartphones targeting the fairer sex is the release of slimmer and curved versions. These phones are big on the glam quotient and do stand out from the pack. Already into the fray is a little known Chinese company called Gionee which has released its Elife S5.1 which stands out with a very slim 5.1 mm profile.

Apart from our listing of best Nokia feature phones for ladies, check out our other listing: the best Nokia smartphones. Among many other manufacturers, Lumia series of Nokia smartphones are highly recommended because of their uber cool designs and their availability in wide variety of colors. Few of these mid range smartphones from Nokia allow you to frequently change the back panels (casings). Of late, Motorola also has focused on offering smartphones with customized colors after its merger with Google.
