Best Smartphones On Sale As Of June 2016

Best Smartphones On Sale As Of June 2016

WE USE it on the train, at work, at home, pretty much everywhere. Our phone has become the most important tool in our lives, so which one is right for you?

If camera is most important — Nokia Lumia 1020

The Lumia 1020’s 41-megapixel camera is in a league of its own. Low-light pictures are excellent, and well lit shots are often as good, if not better than most point-and-shoot cameras. Thanks to the insane amount of pixels, you can zoom in much further than any other mobile without losing quality, a key advantage over its closest competitor, the iPhone 5s.

The Nokia Pro Cam app lets you manually change settings like your exposure and aperture on the go, too. However, Windows Phone may leave you wishing you had something else if you enjoy using lots of apps, and Nokia is due for a replacement model quite soon. But if you must have the best camera phone on the market right now, you can’t do wrong with the Lumia 1020.

I’m just so sick of seeing that low battery notification — BlackBerry Z30

If all you care about is battery life, then Blackberry’s Z30 is for you. While away at the Formula 1 earlier in the year, this reporter charged the Z30 on Thursday night, then used it to take pictures, make calls, send emails and record interviews and it didn’t need charging until late Sunday. No other phone we have used can do that.

BlackBerry 10 is also an underrated platform, especially if you use your phone as a communication device. There’s a limited amount of apps on the BlackBerry World, but you can also install Android apps which fills in a lot of the gaps.

Do you need something pretty? — HTC One (M8)

While the One could also be considered a worthy contender for the outright best phone, its horrible camera lets it down. Being made out of a single piece of aluminium however makes it the best looking phone on the market. While not technically part of the design, the screen is also brilliant and adds to the look and feel of the phone.

Just tell me the best phone! — Apple iPhone 5s

There simply isn’t another device right now that does everything as well as the iPhone 5s. True to Apple, everything about the 5s just works, and everything it does works well. The camera is best in class (The Lumia 1020 is in a league of its own), the design is gorgeous, it has every app you could hope for and iOS is still the easiest mobile operating system to use. Plus with every update Apple puts out, they add the best bits from Android and Windows Phone. While it may not have the best battery life or screen, they’re not as big deterrents as most other phones have. It does everything well, and that’s why it’s the best.

Who gets runner up? - Sony Xperia Z2

Sony’s Xperia Z2 is our runner up, for much the same reason that the iPhone 5s was our winner. It doesn’t do anything the best, but it does everything well. Decent battery life? Check. Decent camera? Check. Good app selection? Check. Water proof? Check.
It might be a bit big for some people and the edges can be sharp, but if you’re after a phone bigger than Apple’s iPhone with as little compromises as possible, the Z2 should be your choice.
