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

Editors' Comments

A lot has been going on in the past weeks. The Lumia 950 XL's price climbed well beyond 400 Euros (~$450) and had to be dismissed from this Top 10 chart. In return, Lenovo's P2 jumps right into second place as a newcomer and also reaps in the Best Value Award. The successors of Huawei's P9 Lite, the Moto G4 Plus and Galaxy A3 (2016) have replaced them, which alters their placement slightly.

1st

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.

 

2nd

Lenovo P2
Lenovo P2

If a smartphone deserves the label price-performance sensation then it is probably Lenovo's P2. It is powered by a mid-range Snapdragon 625 SoC and offers a lush 4 GB of working memory and 32 GB of flash memory. The latter can be extended via a micro-SD card. The 5.5-inch AMOLED panel has the high Full HD resolution, and the buyer gets a strong 5100 mAh battery that ensures an outstanding battery life as the icing on the cake.

In view of the low price, some minor concessions have to be made. The microphones did not function perfectly in our test and the camera's low-light photo quality was only mediocre.

Google's Android 7.0 Nougat is now available for Lenovo's P2.

3rd

BlackBerry DTEK50
BlackBerry DTEK50

With the BlackBerry DTEK50, the Canadian company promises to offer the most secure Android smartphone in 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

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 contrast ratio 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.

5th

Huawei P10 Lite
Huawei P10 Lite

Huawei's P10 Lite has a 5.2-inch screen with a Full HD resolution. HiSilicon's Kirin 658 powers it, and it uses 4 GB of working memory. The 32 GB internal storage can be extended via an optional micro-SD card. LTE Cat.6, ac Wi-Fi, NFC, and a hybrid dual-SIM slot are also present. The battery life proved to be very decent in the test and the cameras also made a good impression.

It is too bad that apps cannot be moved to the micro-SD card and the user has to decide whether the storage is to be expanded or a second SIM card is to be inserted. Furthermore, the firmware needs a lot of storage with 12 GB.

6th

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.

7th

Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017)
Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017)

The third generation of the Samsung Galaxy A3 brings several notable improvements. The camera lens are flush with the case now, a USB Type-C port is available, and the smarpthone is protected against dust and water according to IP68. It uses a fast SoC, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB internal storage. The storage capacity can be expanded with a microSD card. Cameras and battery runtimes are also really good. The display has a diagonal of 4.7 inch and uses Samsung's Super AMOLED technology. Its resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels is good and the display can get very bright.

8th

Lenovo Moto G5 Plus
Lenovo Moto G5 Plus

Lenovo's Moto G5 Plus is the slightly bigger model of the G5 lineup and has a 5.2-inch Full HD screen. A Snapdragon 625 ensures good performance and finds support in 3 GB of working memory. The internal storage (32 GB) can be extended via a micro-SD card. In addition to dual-band Wi-Fi, the smartphone supports LTE Cat.6. The G5 Plus achieved really good battery runtimes in the test thanks to its 3000 mAh battery. The front camera also convinced us, but we would have wished for a tiny bit more sharpness from the primary camera in detail.

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 liked 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.
