There are several hot phones on the market right now, and side note: if you are looking for a great deal, you may be able to score one at Frugaa.com. Anyway, without further ado, here’s a look at some of our favorite smartphones for 2015:
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
Metal Plus Glass
The Galaxy S6 Edge comes in platinum white, black, and gold. The camera is efficient for “selfie lovers.” You can take a photo by just double tapping the home button. Literally snap your photo in just 0.7 seconds. With a 16MP rear camera, and a wide-angel selfie camera, you can capture quality photos to share with your friends and family.
Always on the go? Luckily, this phone can charge for just 10 minutes and be ready for us up to 4 hours. It can also be charged wirelessly, but the wireless pad is sold separate.
Sony Xperia Z3 Compact
Flawless Photos and Enormous Storage
This phone is Android powered with 16 GB of storage. There is a slot for a microSD card. The camera is 20 MP and 2160p so the pictures are decent when taken with this phone. This phone is equipped with 2 GB of RAM. This is a convenient, compact smartphone that is waterproof. The available colors are white, black, red, and green.
Embrace your Creative Side
If you have a creative side, you will enjoy the creative functions you can do with your photos or movies. There is a movie creator that comes with the phone so you can personalize your greetings. This phone has a 2-day battery life period, 110 hours of music, and 10 hours of HD video.
Sync with Your PS4
The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact has a remote play option for the PS4. You can access your PS4 console through your WIFI network and play games with your phone and Dualshock controller in any room of your home.
The all new iPhone 6s has pressure sensitive screen, or as Apple calls it – “3D Touch.” The 3D Touch capability was introduced with the Apple Watch and on the latest MacBook’s earlier in the year (called Force Touch), which detects when there is different kinds of pressure being applied to the watch and MacBook trackpads.
This will work the same way on the iPhone 6s. It will determine how hard you are pressing down on it and provide you with different options (like right clicking on the computer). The new iPhone will be released on September 25, with pre-orders opening this week (Saturday September 12 at 12:01 PT/3AM ET). Additionally, now you can activate Siri by saying, “Hey, Siri,” even if the phone isn’t plugged in.
Exquisite Photos and Better Specs
Apple included a faster and newer processor, which is a jump up to 2 GB of RAM. The camera now has a 12 megapixel rear camera, unlike the 8 megapixel camera like the old models. The all new iPhone 6S can even shoot a 4k video.
Show Your Colors
You can now let everyone know that you have the newest iPhone. Apple has started to offer the iPhone 6S in a rose gold color, which matches the rose gold Apple Watch. The rose gold iPhone 6s is not actual gold though, unlike its Apple Watch counterpart. That being said, it means the rose gold iPhone 6s is priced the same as the other models making it much more affordable than a $17,000 rose gold Apple Watch.
