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

Editors' Comments

There are currently not many changes here. The current mid-range devices from Samsung, Galaxy A5, and A3 might also become interesting for this ranking if their prices fall. The Spanish BQ Aquaris X5 Plus could rank in mid-range this month.

 

1st

Microsoft Lumia 950 XL and 950 DS
Microsoft Lumia 950 XL and 950 DS

Microsoft's flagship smartphone Lumia 950 XL could actually have been a big success, but similar to many other Surface products in the recent past, the software was not running perfectly at the time of the review. By now, Windows 10 Mobile is stable and we like it a lot. The smartphone is also equipped with powerful hardware: Snapdragon 810, 3 GB RAM, 32 GB flash storage, microSD up to 200 GB, replaceable battery, 5.7-inch QHD panel, USB 3.1 Gen.1 (Type-C), wireless charging, quick-charge, iris scanner and a very good camera. You also get other great features like Continuum and Windows Hello. However, the hardware is let down by the app store, because there are still some pretty big gaps.

If you prefer a slightly smaller display, you should check out the Lumia 950 (5.2-inch, Snapdragon 808). Its price dropped below 300 Euros by now as well.

2nd

LG G Flex 2
LG G Flex 2

The LG G Flex 2 was presented at CES 2015 in Las Vegas as the first smartphone with Snapdragon 810, which was brand new at the time. The Koreans have learned from the many mistakes of the original G Flex and have produced a great smartphone with rugged qualities and a self-healing back panel. The display is appealing and the camera shoots good pictures. In addition, it comes with 16 GB of internal storage, the storage capacity can be expanded with a MicroSD card, and almost all connection standards are supported. Apart from DLNA, Miracast, slim port support, an infrared sender and an FM radio are on board.

However, although 2 GB of RAM is sufficient, the Flex 2 falls slightly behind other high-end smartphones currently on the market. An update to Android 5.1 Lollipop was rolled out in June. Another one to the current version 6.0 Marshmallow is very likely.

3rd

BlackBerry DTEK50
BlackBerry DTEK50

With the BlackBerry DTEK50, the Canadian company promises to offer the most secure Android smartphone of the world. Nevertheless, or precisely because of this, the smartphone does not have a fingerprint scanner or other biometric unlocking functions. The hardware of the light smartphone is nothing to sneeze at: a 5.2-inch Full HD panel, 3 GB of RAM, 16 GB of flash memory, which can be expanded with a MicroSD card. In terms of connectivity, Blackberry sticks to the current standard. However, the Wi-Fi module unfortunately only brings very slow transfer rates. In addition, the cameras could be slightly better. On the other hand, the battery runtimes are very good.

4th

Lenovo Moto G
Lenovo Moto G

With the Moto G4 Plus, Lenovo has shown that the former Motorola models are not neglected, but consequently enhanced. The smartphone comes with a great display, a fingerprint scanner, and a good camera. As expected, updates for the installed Google Android are guaranteed.

However, we did not like the GPS module that much since it did not always work accurately. In addition, the voice quality could be better. Those who want to save a few Euros can buy the cheaper Moto G4, but they will have to do without a fingerprint scanner and Quick Charge. Furthermore, the camera is worse.

5th

BQ Aquaris X5 Plus
BQ Aquaris X5 Plus

The BQ Aquaris X5 Plus is a great bundle for a fair price. Apart from a cutting-edge mid-range SoC from Qualcomm, it features 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB eMMC storage. It is easy to expand the storage space with a microSD card, which can also be configured as additional internal storage. Besides a decent camera, the user will get dual SIM functionality and a fingerprint reader. Although the display shines very brightly, the black value is only mediocre due to a relatively high black value.

You have to accept small cuts in the low-light capabilities of the camera. The Spanish manufacturer plans an update to Android 7.0 Nougat in the first quarter of 2017.

6th

Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016)
Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016)

Samsung also uses aluminum in the new edition of the Samsung Galaxy A3. However, this time only the frame of the smartphone is made from this, while front and rear are protected by Corning Gorilla glass. While this looks good, the device easily slips from slanted surfaces. The size of the Super AMOLED display has increased to 4.7 inches, but still features a 720p resolution. The SoC ensures a decent performance. The 16 GB of storage capacity can be expanded by up to 128 GB with a MicroSD card. Moreover, the decent speaker and the very good battery runtimes were convincing in our test. However, the feature set could have been more comprehensive.

7th

Gigaset ME
Gigaset ME

Many will associate the name "Gigaset" with classic wireless telephone handsets. The manufacturer now also offers smartphones based on current technology. The Gigaset ME uses both glass and metal for the construction and feels upscale while tending to be quite slippery as well. The 5-inch display has a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels and is bright while offering good contrast and accurate colors. Plus points are the MicroSD slot for expansion, the Dual-SIM functionality, and the integrated heart-rate monitor. The camera does not deliver sharp photos, however, and the WLAN reception could have been better in our tests.

8th

Huawei P9 Lite
Huawei P9 Lite

The Huawei P9 Lite is a small edition of the current flagship smartphone of the Chinese. Although it also comes with a 5.2-inch Full HD IPS touchscreen, its color accuracy is less precise. The mid-range SoC comes from the same manufacturer. Thanks to a sleek user interface, it still delivers great system performance.

Furthermore, it has 3 GB of RAM and 16 GB of flash memory. The storage capacity can be expanded with a MicroSD. If the internal storage capacity is enough for you, you can also use the second slot for a SIM card. The cameras record decent images and the battery runtimes are very good. We missed the option to move apps to the MicroSD in our test and the rear side of the case is quite slippery.

9th

Honor 5C
Honor 5C

With the Honor 5C, the Huawei subsidiary offers a very well-equipped mid-range smartphone. From a technical point of view, it is quite similar to the Huawei P9 Lite, which also features a 5.2-inch touchscreen. The smartphone is powered by a Kirin 650 SoC and 2 GB of RAM. The flash memory has a capacity of 16 GB and the memory capacity can be expanded by a MicroSD. Unfortunately, it does not support App2SD and a wider range of mobile phone frequencies should be supported.

Those who prefer a larger display and do not need a fingerprint scanner should consider the larger Honor 5X sibling, which costs just 30 Euros (~$33) more.

10th

ZTE Axon 7 Mini
ZTE Axon 7 Mini

The ZTE Axon 7 Mini is a great mainstream smartphone with a priority on the sound experience. Besides a 5.2-inch Full-HD AMOLED screen, you get a slightly outdated mainstream SoC from Qualcomm. The memory equipment is decent with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB eMMC storage.

During the review, we really like the sophisticated aluminum display and the good stereo speakers. You also get a USB Type-C port, a quick-charge function, a good fingerprint scanner and up to a three-year warranty. Because of the comparatively small battery, however, the runtimes are just average.
