Mobile phones have come a long way in the past decade. Ever since Steve Jobs took the stage and introduced the world to the first iPhone, the world of mobile computing has changed drastically. Today, there are many different companies that manufacture and sell a variety of different phones. Some phones cater to power users, while others are budget devices designed for those who don’t want to spend a fortune on a new phone. Every year, companies such as Apple and Samsung introduce new flagship devices. If you are looking to buy one of the best phones on the market, take your pick from the options below.
OPPO F1 Plus
The OPPO F1 Plus is the company’s flagship device, and it definitely fits the bill. It’s one of the few Dual SIM high-end devices right now and is regarded as one of the best mobile phones in Australia. The OPPO F1 Plus has a 5.5 inch 1080 display. It runs Android 5.1 Lollipop, and has a 13 MP rear camera. Underneath the hulking chassis, the phone is powered by an Octa Core 2.0 GHz Cortex A53 processor and four GB of RAM. Needless to say, the phone is capable of running any app with ease. Benchmark results place the OPPO F1 Plus in the upper echelon of mobile devices, making it an excellent choice for power users. Despite the specs, the phone is priced lower than other flagship devices on the market.
Samsung Galaxy S7
Samsung is the biggest smartphone manufacturer in the industry right now. The Korean tech giant holds the biggest share of the smartphone market, and the company’s flagship device, the Galaxy S7, is definitely one of the best phones on the market right now. Samsung brought back all the features that went missing with the S6, including expandable memory and waterproofing, and also introduced a Dual SIM variant.
The 5.1 inch AMOLED screen is probably the sharpest mobile phone display at the moment. The phone runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and is fitted with Snapdragon 820 (local models) or an Exynos 8890 Octa processor (international version). There’s four GB of RAM inside as well, making it a force to be reckoned with. This is easily the most powerful device right now, and if you can afford it, you should definitely opt for this!
iPhone 6S Plus
The iPhone 6S Plus is miles better than the standard 6S. Apart from the bigger and better screen, the phone also has a bigger battery (a serious issue with iPhones). The company upgraded the rear shooter, introducing a 12 MP camera in the back and a five MP shooter in the front. iPhones are often famous for being in a league of their own, and the 6S Plus certainly ups the ante. However, iPhones aren’t cheap, so you will have to scrounge a serious amount of cash in order to buy the 128 GB model. The 64 GB model is slightly lower-priced, though you shouldn’t buy the 16 GB model at all.
