Its video recording is what helps it rank on our list, and we’re sure you’ll be more than happy about it.
Released October 17, 2014 – the Galaxy Note 4 has the best screen size of any of the best new smartphones and boasts a 5.7” display that has a camera resolution of 16-megapixels as well as a 515ppi pixel density. It’s an incredible screen resolution that is an amazing 2560 x 1440, which makes it a beast to compete with image quality. The main reason it’s not the top smartphone available today, is the clunky stylus pen that seems entirely antiquated.
Having looked at Samsung phones, let’s turn our attention toward Apple and their iconic iPhone brands.
Here Are The Top 3 Reasons Why The iPhones Are The Best New Smartphones
1. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are HUGE revisions from the previous versions. With increased screen sizes of 4.7 inches OR 5.5 inches and a leaner, lighter body – the latest phones are both superior and slimmer than prior brands and that puts them in direct competition with the Galaxy s5 for market supremacy.
2. Exceptional graphic interfaces and extremely high-def resolution are another of their new features. From 1334×780 for the iPhone 6 or 1920×1080 for the iPhone 6 Plus – the graphics jump right off the screen and out at you making pictures and videos unreal. These compete with both of Samsung’s flagship phones in both camera quality and video display.
3. The new A8 processor. It’s a renovation of the previous A7 chip that was by all standards incredibly fast and efficient. This remarkably sleek and fast central processing unit Apple claims is over 84x more powerful and has the power of 2 billion transistors – it makes it the fastest and most amazing processor speed out there today.
