What Are The Top Smartphones of 2015? Here’s Our Suggestions…
We’re at the mid-point of the year and that makes it time to start evaluating the top smartphones of 2015. Already we’ve seen the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus released late 2014, as well as the Galaxy S6 and Note 4 by Samsung battling it out for market supremacy. While there have been some great options by other manufacturers, such as the LG G4, the Google Nexus 6 and HTC One M9, we believe that Apple vs Android is the fight to pay attention to for market champion.
In previous reviews, we’ve discussed the strengths of the Note 4 and the iPhone 6 Plus, as well as the iPhone 6 vs the Galaxy S6. They’re the best new smartphones around and we’re really high on all four of the models.
But before we decide not the top smartphones of 2015, we also need to consider what may be on the horizon. With the backend of the year being the primary holiday shopping, consumer electronics try to have major branding and marketing for new releases. So we expect some major device upgrades in the early fall that will correspond with the uptick in consumer purchasing.
In previous reports we’ve discussed the strengths of the best smartphone on the market, in our opinion the iPhone 6, but any report shouldn’t be limited to just one.
While we’ve discussed all four of these devices as rivaling the top smartphones of 2015, now it’s being reported that Apple and Samsung are working together – at least in part.
Apple is reportedly using Samsung to assist with boosting the memory for the next generation iPhones and their A9 processor. This cooperation will surely mark the end of the Apple vs Android wars that was released in late 2014 – if only to save face with each other.
Is Apple About To Release 3 New iPhones?
In a recent article on BGR.com, they report that Apple may be about to unleash not two new phones, but 3 new iPhones in the fall of 2015. The rumors are for a new iPhone 6s, the 6s Plus and a possible smaller 4.7” screen iPhone 6c.
In another article we reported on previously, it’s being reported that the iPhone 7 may be in line to be the next release. It promises to be the thinnest smartphone yet and with increased memory and processing speed. One major hardware spec would be the elimination of the home button, with force touch being the primary way to access and unlock the phone. By increasing the surface area to use your fingerprint, as well as touch sensitive sensors, Apple is making the next generation iPhone to be sleek, slime and secure. This firmly plants the iPhone line into the best smartphone of 2015 regardless of what model you may decide upon.
Samsung Will Counter With Their Own Releases
Since there is both a competitive and cooperative balance that Apple maintains with Samsung, it should be no surprise that as Apple releases their next generation of iPhones, Samsung is rumored to do the same. Some of the focal points for the new Samsung lines will be more of an emphasis on developing the Samsung Pay system to counter what Apple is already doing. This could be the start of a Visa/MasterCard type growth in the industry and one to keep an eye on in the future.
What this could mean is the end of the plastic credit card has begun. With Apple and Samsung each offering their own version of a payment system using NFC technology, merchants will continue to add the payment option to their systems. The more that merchants and cell phones add the technology, the more prevalent that it will become.
It’s the midpoint of the year, and whether you already purchased a new device or are waiting to see the new releases, the top smartphones of 2015 are going to be produced by either Apple or Samsung.
