Smartphones have become a need for everyone in this modern world, and manufacturers are always competing to come up with the best gadget that money can buy.The year 2016 witnessed a lot of new smartphone units introduced into the market. Among all of them, here are 3 phones that outshine the rest and are considered as the best smartphones in 2016:
- iPhone 7 Plus
For their newest release, Apple decided to stick with the style of the smartphone’s predecessor but enhanced everything else. Today, the 5.5-inch phone is considered as one of the best-looking phones in the market.Among all the upgrades the phone has received, the most notable include the camera which now comes with two 12MP sensors capable of 2x optical zoom. Aside from that, it also has a more intelligent voice command operation, better graphics, and a new speaker system that can produce better sounds.
The phone has also become more unique with its waterproof case and lack of earphone jack that revolutionized the way that people listen to music on their phones. It would not be surprising to see more smartphone manufacturers start to follow their example and make the wireless earphones a new trend in the years to come.
- Google Pixel XL
Google finally released their first smartphone, and it definitely takes a spot in the list of best smartphones for 2016. It does not look so different from existing smartphones.It features a 5.5-inch screen and rounded corners that make it easy and comfortable to hold.The operating system of the phone was also developed by Google, which they dubbed as Google Assistant. It has been getting a lot of praises because it works in perfect harmony with the software, as the OS comes with a virtual assistant with a personality much like Cortana and Siri.
The camera of this smartphone is also notable. It has a 12-megapixel sensor that enables users to capture images in vivid color and performs very well even in low light.
Two things make this smartphone stand out from the rest, and that is its innovative camera and modular design.The G5 is home to 2 cameras. The primary one is 16MP, which takes average photos that do not really measure up to those taken with iPhones or Samsung phones. The second camera only has an 8MP sensor, but with a much wider field of view. It allows the user to capture images similar to that captured by a GoPro, but with a lower quality.The modular design allows users to add optional attachments like a camera or a microphone. It also allows users to remove parts, like the back cover and the battery. It may not look as sleek as its other competitors, but the modular design definitely allows them to do things that people with other smartphones may not be able to do.
The year 2017 is another year that might witness new smartphone introductions that could be better than the ones in this list. New innovations encapsulated in a small hand held phone are definitely something that everyone should watch out for.
