Best Android smart phones of 2015

The absolute best: Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+

It was hard to pass up Samsung's Galaxy S6 Edge+ as our top pick. There are many opinions on what makes a phone the best on the market at any given time, but the staff at AndroidPIT agree on one thing – we haven't tested a better smartphone or phablet.

The S6 Edge+ isn't a device for everyone; it's big and expensive. But it goes beyond what other smartphones can offer. From a straight specs viewpoint, the S6 Edge+ has top-of-the-line everything.
From Samsung's insane octa-core processor, to the 16 MP rear camera that we can't fault, to the gorgeous QHD display that's so large and so densely pixelated that it's more immersive than any other phone, the reasons to recommend the S6 Edge+ are almost endless.

But what makes the Galaxy S6 Edge+ the absolute best Android phone right now is the design. It shares some hardware with the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, but aside from its bigger screen size, price and construction, the design of the S6 Edge+ is what makes it stand out from its brethren.
Enveloping the curved display are beautifully crimped edges, machined to a soft line, that look and feel better than those on the S6 and S6 Edge. With its more angular appearance, and the larger, deeper-looking edges flanking the display, the S6 Edge+ is Samsung's most successful design expression yet. It really is quite a thing to behold.

Best all-rounder: Samsung Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge

It may seem strange to recommend two phones for this title, but the all-round quality of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge – and their similarity to each other – means they both deserve it.
After a couple of years of resting on its laurels with the 'S' series design, Samsung created a phone with the looks to match its next-generation hardware. It's an elegant, glossy combination of glass and metal that eradicates the memory of Samsung's previous plastic flagships.

 Samsung has bravely done away with a microSD slot and removable back cover, which is a powerful way of saying that everything you need in a phone is already contained within the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.
A non-removable battery seems all the braver given the phones' QHD displays, but it does a great job, and is boosted by the phone's one-hour fast-charge function. The S6 duo are also far and away the fastest phones in the world thanks to the latest model of Samsung's octa-core Exynos chipsets.

The S6 Edge differs from the S6 by way of its screen, which curves down onto both sides of the phone, offering its own unique set of features, notifications and apps design. It also has a slightly bigger battery, but only by 50 mAh.
Top quality comes at a price though. The Galaxy S6 price starts at US$699 / £599, while the S6 Edge starts at US$899 / £699.

Best price/performance ratio: Honor 7

When it comes to the price/performance ratio, things get interesting. If you can afford to pay close to a grand for a phone, it's easy to get an incredible device, but what if you have a lower price point in mind? How do you make sure you're getting the best bang for your buck?
You weigh up the benefits and features of a phone against its price and make a judgment call on what gets you the best performance and features for the lowest figure, with the fewest compromises.

Honor 7 0
The Honor 7 feels a lot more expensive than it is. And we love that. / freenetcracker
