Some of the top new cell phone models for 2015 are the Samsung Galaxy S6, the iPhone 6S and the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, according to CNET. These modern smartphones win praise for their designs, features and powerful technical specs.
Samsung’s Galaxy S6 takes home top honors among the 2015 class of smartphones, winning praise for its sleek design, high-end processor, and superb audio and video quality. The phone's glass-and-metal body is a step up from the plastic chassis of previous models, and its 5.1-inch screen is one of the sharpest available. Users do note that the phone’s battery life is not the strongest, but it’s one of the phone’s only negatives.
Apple’s iPhone 6S isn’t a huge leap over the phone's previous incarnation, but it offers the same mix of style and functionality that has come to define the iPhone. A powerful processor, a sharp camera and a new 3-D touch interface rank among the phone’s most lauded features. Reviewers criticize the phone’s chassis, however, which is identical to the previous iPhone, and its battery life, which is slightly shorter than previous models.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 5 is a combination tablet and phone that comes with a built-in stylus. The spacious 5.7-inch screen gives users more room to work and maneuver, and the phone offers one of the sharpest displays of any phone available. Reviewers and users do note disappointment with two of the phone’s features: no microSD card slot and a battery that can’t be swapped out or removed.
