Notebookcheck's Top 10 Smartphones

January 2016 update. Here you'll find the latest smartphones reviewed by Notebookcheck. Our Top 10 list is regularly updated, maintained and commented on by our editors. This page is intended to help our readers decide which product to purchase.

Smartphones destroy everything else in terms of sales in the mobile market. These incredibly versatile devices outstripped normal cell phones ages ago. With even stronger processors and growing display sizes, so-called "phablets" are encroaching on tablet territory. The line between these devices is growing increasingly blurry - at least at the peak of the market. These smartphone-tablet crossbreeds have taken many of the top spots in our smartphone Top 10 list. As a result, most of the top models in our list are occupied by very recently released devices. Still, here and there a brave old soldier has clung on to the top of the ladder.

Top 10 smartphones from the last 12 months - current reviews are listed first

Editors' Comments

In the smartphone range, the year ended with a final sprint. As much as eleven models made it into our lab in the previous weeks including real high-end models like the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X. The former top Samsung model has undergone an exciting renaissance in the Galaxy S5 Neo. OnePlus provided us with a mid-range model X, which can compete with the original One. In contrast, LG caters beginners with the Bello II. The LG Wine Smart, a clamshell phone with Android and touch, has been designed for retro fans. As a newcomer, Allview, offers two cheap models. Only the two Google smartphones performed well enough for our charts.

1st

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

The first Samsung flagship with two rounded display edges can immediately secure the first place in our ranking. There are no small issues or other problems that are unfortunately common for many new devices thus there is nothing negative in the overall impression of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Quite the contrary: The performance of the Edge is terrific. The performance is without compromises, the chassis made of metal and glass has an exemplary build quality. It also looks very elegant with the two rounded display edges. The display itself is a highlight, not only because of the two sides. The Super-AMOLED screen can completely convince us with great colors, an extremely high contrast, perfect viewing angles and very wide color space coverage. You also get an impressive luminance. The probably best smartphone right now is rounded off with very good cameras, very comprehensive features and decent battery runtimes. Still, many Samsung fans will miss the replaceable battery and the MicroSD slot.

2nd

Samsung Galaxy S6
Samsung Galaxy S6

It is the first time that Samsung launched two flagship devices at the same time. The Samsung Galaxy S6 is the successor of the very successful Galaxy S5, but it also has to compete with its "Edge" sibling. The normal S6 lost the showdown against its "curved" sibling in our ranking, but only small things decided the fight. Except for the rounded display edges, we can say the same about the S6: The performance is terrific. The hardware is without compromises, the build quality of the chassis with metal and glass is exemplary. The display itself is a highlight. The Super-AMOLED screen can completely convince us with great colors, an extremely high contrast, perfect viewing angles and very wide color space coverage. You also get an impressive luminance. The almost perfect impression is rounded off with very good cameras, very comprehensive features and decent battery runtimes. Still, many Samsung fans will miss the replaceable battery and the MicroSD slot.

If you want to save some money, you can still safely choose the predecessor: The Samsung Galaxy S5 still uses a polycarbonate case, but its battery is replaceable and memory can be expanded.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4
Samsung Galaxy Note 4

3rd

Smartphones of the Note series from Samsung are almost legendary, not least because of the eponymous stylus. Samsung has also put excellent components into the Note 4, notably the fast SoC. It hosts the many expected features, except that the USB 3.0 port of the predecessor is missing. But, the highlight of the Galaxy Note 4 is its outstanding OLED display with WQHD resolution. The Samsung sets new standards in terms of colors, brightness, viewing-angle stability and black value. The display is simply a dream. The performance cannot completely keep up with this high claim, since the GPU starts to throttle soon under load. Overall, the Note 4 is unrivaled in the phablet range, since cameras and battery life are excellent, too.

Discussion

4th

Sony Xperia Z5 Compact
Sony Xperia Z5 Compact

With their compact models, Sony proved from the very first generation that small is not equal to omitting features. Apart from small details, the Japanese equipped the Xperia Z5 Compact just like the top model with significantly bigger display. Therewith, the Z5c is the only high-end Android model with a display smaller than 5 inch, again. In addition, it is water resistant and features extremely good cameras - at least on paper. However, the quality could still be improved despite high MP. Nevertheless, Sony has the best compact model in its line-up again.

The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact predecessor is still available and shines with a great price performance ratio in the meanwhile.

5th

Apple iPhone 6S
Apple iPhone 6S

With the S models, Apple usually brings a small upgrade to the current iPhones. Basically, this is also true for the iPhone 6S. However, while the new smartphone generation from Apple looks similar to the predecessor, many things have been changed. The case is made from more robust materials, the cameras and the communication modules were improved, and the GPS sensor works perfectly. In addition, the performance is uncompromising and the new operating concept called 3D Touch debuts. In our opinion, the latter is the main reason for migrating to the new generation.

6th

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+

Basically, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ is simply a bigger version of the S6 Edge, which has been available for a while. Thus, the Edge+ features the pros of the smaller sibling like very high performance, great build quality, and the excellent Super-AMOLED display. The cameras are also identical to the standard Edge model's and therewith the best ones in the smartphone range. Although the Edge+ was launched several months after its smaller sibling, Samsung did not use the time to correct smaller issues like throttling. Thus and because of the slightly higher weight, the otherwise great smartphone is not good enough for the top spot.

7th

Samsung Galaxy Note 5
Samsung Galaxy Note 5

Although the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is not available in Europe, certain buyers might be interested in the partial successor of the Note 4, which was very successful in Europe. Even more so, as the Note 5 took over many positive features from the S6 series - first and foremost the extremely fast processor and the very good cameras. Hence, the author considers the Note 5 rather as a side step than an upgrade, which combines the best from both, the Note and the S6 world. In many aspects, for example the display, this was successful. Nevertheless, the Note 5 omits useful features like MHL and MicroSD. In addition, the SoC throttles noticeably. However, the pen with new push-button release-and-lock will convince many users nonetheless.

8th

LG G4
LG G4

With the LG G4, the Korean company made a big step forward again. The design appears to be very high quality and the optional leather backside is pleasing. In addition, the QHD display brings an excellent contrast and dims only rarely and not as much as previously when the device gets too hot. The camera belongs to the best ones currently available in smartphones and the connectivity also leaves no wish unfulfilled.

Unfortunately, the UI is not completely smooth despite using frugal Android 5.1 Lollipop. In addition, the voice quality is not good enough for a high-end superstar. But, LG kept some good features, which Samsung lacks lately. The battery is still replaceable and the storage capacity can be increased without problems with a MicroSD card. Therefore, you will get an excellent bundle.

9th

Google Nexus 6P
Google Nexus 6P

Google's new flagship, the Nexus 6P, can convince in many aspects. Apart from a powerful SoC, it delivers 3 GB of RAM and many of today's wireless communication standards. Except for AC WiFi with up to 866 Mbit/s, the phone also supports Bluetooth 4.2 and NFC. In addition, the smartphone is compatible with various mobile telephony networks. In everyday tasks, it convinces with good speaker quality, a fast operating system, a great camera, and a reliable fingerprint reader. In addition, it is nice that the phone features an especially reliable GPS module. Its 5.7 inch, contrast-rich AMOLED display, which could convince with excellent colors in our review, is another highlight.

10th

Google Nexus 5X
Google Nexus 5X

There is newest technology under the hood of the inconspicuous Nexus 5X: Apart from the modern Snapdragon SoC, there are all radio standards like AC WiFi up to 866 Mbit/s, Bluetooth 4.2, and NFC on board. In addition, the phone supports many mobile telecommunications standards. Further technical highlights are the integrated fingerprint reader, which works reliably and almost without delays, and the very precise GPS module. Moreover, the display scores points with decent brightness, very good contrast and precise colors. The main camera of the smartphone shoots very crisp images in bright environments and can quickly focus thanks to laser support.
