Samsung Galaxy Note 7
Samsung has chosen to renew its best phablet with the best features of the moment. In the section of the processor, and by country, it comes with a Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890, both of a great power and that will not disappoint anyone, with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of ultrafast storage UFS, with expansion micro SD.
The screen is 5.7 inches with a resolution qHD SuperAMOLED, and is the best screen currently on a phone, with a brightness that is about 600 nits, looking perfectly in broad daylight, and a well-adjusted color. It also has NFC, Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11 as 2×2, fingerprint reader, USB connector type C and access to positioning systems GPS, GLONASS, and Beidou.
This phone is waterproof and dust IP68 certified, and the most important new feature is the inclusion of an iris scanner . It has a range of use for unlocking the terminals between 25 and 35 cm, and could serve in the future for facial recognition or some similar technique. Samsung has also renewed once again the S Pen, adding 4,096 pressure levels, from digital pencil 2048 Note 5, and has a finer tip of 0.7 mm.
The camera phone also improved significantly with respect to Note 5 but are basically the same as the Galaxy S7. The rear camera is 12 megapixels, with an aperture f / 1.7 and the pixel size is 1.4 microns, which will improve the capture in worse situations light each pixel being able to capture more light. It includes a Sony IMX260 sensor and Samsung S5K2L1 double.
Records video at 4K, and includes a dual flash. Given that Samsung has the best post-processed image of the sector, I have a special interest in seeing the result of this camera also changes technology for optics with dual pixel sensor to achieve the fastest autofocus on a phone. The front camera is 5 MP with Samsung S5K4E6 sensor and same aperture f / 1.7.
Samsung Galaxy S7
Samsung has introduced a renewal of the Galaxy S6 with just changes to improve significantly.The OLED display has lower power consumption despite being QHD, with an always active feature configurable to display certain information chosen by the user. Moreover, it is virtually the best screen on a phone on the market.
The processor is an Exynos 8890, with great performance processing and graphics Mali T880. The best also remarkably autonomy, emphasizing over other phones with which it competes, but still gives the usual duration of these phones a day with heavy use or a couple of days with moderate use.
Storing phone type UFS 2.0 is ultrafast, with speeds close to 220 MB / s sequential read and 60 MB / s sequential write. Samsung has also improved Android customization layer, which capitalizes with fingerprint reader front (the ideal location). The phone also has resistance to water and dust and has wireless charging with Wi-Fi 802.11 a 2×2 MU-MIMO.
Google Nexus 6P
The Nexus 6P is a high – end phone in his own right, due to the combination of a large aluminum design, great screen, great camera. The display has great color reproduction, although its brightness value is perhaps a little low for what would be desirable for outdoor use as it stands at around 350 nits.
The processor Snapdragon 810 makes it work all perfectly fluid, and storage options are based on the 32 GB, 3 GB of RAM. More than enough for a good use, and continuous updates provided directly by Google Android (Android 7.0 now features) is a phone that lasts years. The gray point is the lack of a micro-SD card and a battery life could be better, but should serve to get left over at the end of the day the average user.
The camera is among the best on the market . Take some great pictures in low light, good light situations are exceptional, and records video at 4K and 30 FPS. By price,is an incredibly full phone and not flower in any section, including the addition of a fingerprint reader for contactless payments and unlocking, among others.
HTC has been redeemed in the high range where their last two phones were far from having the success they expected. With HTC 10 have returned to the origins and what should be a good phone 2016, providing a good aluminum design with the edges of the glass screen rounded and the sides, which is a very comfortable phone to hold and use.
The 5.2 – inch QHD screen provides vivid color and a value close to 450 nits brightness, which can be used outdoors without too many problems. The fingerprint reader is located on the front start button, which is the ideal position for them. The processor Snapdragon 820 is the most powerful of 2016, and take it included a guarantee that at least have the maximum fluidity of use, with Android 6.0 preinstalled.
HTC has changed the speaker layout to include a front for high frequencies and lower to act as a subwoofer , although the section of the audio DAC 24 bits used promise a great sound quality through headphones, and include one with the improved design for better use of the phone ‘scapabilities in this area. The battery has a good time, but not as good as other phones with more capacity or more optimized, but will last until you get home in the afternoon.
The rear camera sensor Sony IMX377 the same 12 megapixels used in other phones that render beautifully as the Nexus or Nexus 5X 6P, capable of recording video in slow motion to 4K. It features f / 1.8, the pixel size of 1.55 .mu.m and a laser sensor for autofocus that will give a good response in low light conditions. It also includes optical image stabilization , as well as the front camera, using where appropriate a Samsung S5K4E6 5 megapixel sensor with f / 1.8.
Apple iPhone 6s
The protagonist this year’s iPhone 6s is one: 3D Touch . This pressure sensor system is responsible for that has revolutionized the interaction with a touch screen, opening new possibilities to save time. If a drop-off option appears for example squeeze an icon of the home screen, or if you pull a thumbnail of a picture, see largest, and squeezing a little more will open another associated application.
The phone maintains the same aesthetic as the iPhone 6, with a little more weight and thickness due to the new feature 3D Touch. The battery is reduced to 1,715 mAh, but the autonomy of the phone remains the same. Not exceptional, but it is not at all bad, and can compare with LG G4, although it depends on what. If you go to watch videos, you can spend up to 10 hours watching them, but if you get to play, you probably will not reach the 3 hours of autonomy.
The screen has slightly improved its quality, and the Touch ID sensor is now faster. The coprocessor M9 allows voice-activated Siri, Wi-Fi is now twice as fast and includes better support LTE and more bands (almost all used). The land of connectivity is no problem on the iPhone 6s.
The camera has also improved, becoming 12 megapixels, with improvements in color. Apple has added a system to improve the quality of each pixel captured, and the result is excellent. You can also now record video at 4K, and the front camera becomes 5 megapixels. Nothing new, but still allowing you to be among the best cameras of the moment.
Additional mention deserves the Apple A9 processor with two cores achieved virtually the same power as the eight-core Snapdragon 810. Since in most situations only one or two cores, the final performance of the iPhone 6s is well above used the rest of the competition. Except in the graphic field, which although excellent, is not the best, because in games that’s preferable to have quad-core processors.
But overall, it is an exceptional phone, and the property that shines more and puts it in a head is 3D Touch.
Samsung Galaxy S6
Samsung has taken note of the expressed complaints about the Galaxy S5 and S6 with the Galaxy has put on the table a very similar but incredibly different product. As I say, the high-end to justify its price must contribute something essential: a great design, at the height of the flagship phones Apple and HTC.
The Galaxy S6 has endowed this great design that was expected long before Samsung. Its aluminum frame and rear glass, with good ergonomics and a great look, make the Galaxy S6 can turn to consider a high-end phone, and possibly the best there is right now, although you could argue that it is the same iPhone level 6. with the design change what has been lost is resistance to dust and water, but in practice very few users will need. This loss worth.
It includes the best screen on a phone there right now (5.1 ” QHD) with a high-quality color, and brightness and contrast perfectly fit the needs of that look good in any situation. It includes physical buttons, and the start button includes a new improved version of the fingerprint reader and now only need to leave your finger on it instead of having to pass from the bottom up. A big improvement.
The 16-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization and improved optical remove make really good photos and very little light. It is similar to the iPhone 6 level above the rest of the Android competition, and in certain situations is the best camera there in a smartphone . Especially since the iPhone 6 is 8 megapixels, and if you need to enlarge an image you realize that missing pixels to be useful. That does not happen with the Galaxy S6.
The terminal is fluid with Samsung Exynos 7420 processor, in the graphics is behind others but a problem of moving a resolution of 2560 x 1400 pixels versus iPhone 6 and its 1344 x 750 pixels (huge difference), and software accompanying the phone finally starts to seem modern applications and unscheduled two evenings. Besides the change in the appearance of TouchWiz with Android 5.0 is much appreciated.
You can expect a normal range for a phone (it will last a day with an average use to high) and perhaps have included a Full HD screen in place that would have allowed stand out in this field. It is a missed opportunity, but not detract from the terminal. Finally, the battery is not removable and does not include the card reader, but does have an ultrafast minimum 32GB storage, with speeds that can duplicate any other phone.
Huawei has chosen to market a high-end focused, especially on your camera. No sidesteps the aluminum design and a powerful Kirin 955 processor with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage as standard. The processor has a primary cluster quad-core Cortex-A72 running at 2.5 GHz, and the second cluster is four Cortex-A53 1.8GHz.
The graphic is usually where most go weak the Kirin, and that’s the most improvement in the Kirin 955 since its GPU Mali-T880MP4 passes from 700 MHz to 900 MHz. It includes a fingerprint reader on the part further, that while it is not the ideal location, it works very fast in fingerprint recognition.
But as I said, the important thing on this phone is the camera. It has certified Leica to ensure accuracy and color reproduction, and at the rear includes two 12 megapixel cameras. One of them is responsible for capturing the color of an image and the other is monochrome. This has some advantages in the field of design of the camera capture color and light.
The cameras can optimize contrast depending on the light conditions, plus it allows easier to remove color filter camera. The monochrome camera captures at least three times more light in the scenes when compared to a single camera phone, and so much more detail of the scene that can be used to improve image sharpness. This arrangement also allows camera blur effects or bokeh simulating software focal length between f / .95 and f / 16.
Apple iPhone SE
The iPhone is a review of iPhone 5 SE, with much of the updated hardware. It maintains the same fingerprint reader, screen size, resolution, and almost foreign same static (many consider better than the iPhone 6), but changes its processor to Apple A9 that gives you a perfect fluidity to the phone, and great graphics power (thanks to having a resolution set to 326 dpi).
The rear camera is the same as the iPhone 6s, so it is among the best on the market. Does not include pressure sensors 3D Touch iPhone 6s. It has a good autonomy despite the small battery capacity, thanks to the high integration of the operating system and hardware.
iPhone 6 Plus
The first phablet Apple has positioned itself as a direct competitor of Samsung Galaxy Note 4. The hardware includes virtually the same as the iPhone 6, but with a 5.5 – inch screen Full HD, the camera includes optical image stabilizer (OIS) and has a battery much more capacity.
Because of the screen resolution unaccountable games as well, but continue going well. If drivers use Metal, they will go perfectly. The screen quality is almost equal to that of the iPhone 6, high-quality color, but slightly behind the screen of the Galaxy Note 4. Nothing will notice a user of this phablet naked eye. 2,900 mAh battery will last between 12 and 14 hours of mixed use WhatsApp, surf the Internet and calls, making it essential to purchase the above factor other options.
