In some cases, devices that have lost their appeal as months passed largely maintain their launch-day price. In other cases, however, smartphones that still pack a mean punch are offered at hefty discounts.
We did some digging around, and we're ready to talk about the top five 2015 smartphones that are worth purchasing in March 2016.
LG G4 Review
The LG G4 certainly isn't the "radically different" smartphone LG executives promised, but it isn't last year's phone either. The new kid in town features significant hardware improvements in the form of a quantum dot LCD IPS QHD display, a 64-bit hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, a 16MP rear camera...
LG are back again here with the G4, but don’t be fooled that this successor is just going to sit pretty and let the competition breeze past them. Everything about this phone has been retooled and reworked to ensure it’s a flagship worthy enough for all to see the great, feel the great. So, are they able...
Keeping the lights on is a 3000mAh battery, that offers only average autonomy. However, you can always buy a second battery and take advantage of the phone's ability to swap batteries on the go.
Other advantages include the 16MP primary camera, one that offers a manual mode to facilitate the capture of amazing photos in the hands of a skilled photographer, as well as a tanned leather back option that adds a bit of elegance to what's otherwise an unimpressive build. Furthermore, the device has been already updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and will probably get the next major Android iteration as well.
Compared to the new LG G5, the G4 is far less impressive, that's for sure. On the other hand, the new LG G5 will be priced at about twice as what its predecessor is currently going for. Currently sold at the price of a mid-range model, the LG G4 is definitely worth buying today.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Review
The Samsung Galaxy S7 may be the talk of the town today, but its predecessor, the Galaxy S6, is still one of the best Android smartphones you can currently get your hands on. At the moment, an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S6 with 32GB of internal storage and one year of US warranty goes for just $479.99.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 presents a radical redesign into the flagship Galaxy S line. With a renewed focus on premium looks and cutting edge specs, the Galaxy S6 sports a Quad HD display, an improved 16MP camera, and - finally - super-fast UFS 2.0 based internal storage starting at 32 GB up to 128 GB. The...
On the software side, the Galaxy S6 is currently being updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Unfortunately, it looks like Samsung has delayed updating its 2015 flagships to the latest version of Android, which makes us a bit skeptical about the phone getting a timely update to Android N.
With the Galaxy S7 just around the corner, chances are that the Galaxy S6 will start being offered at even lower prices, so keep your eyes open for hot deals on the phone.
Google Nexus 6 Review
The Nexus 6 is powered by the Snapdragon 805 system chip, the jewel in Qualcomm’s 32-bit crown. This is the last iteration of Qualcomm’s Krait CPU core architecture, with four cores running at up to 2.65GHz, along with 3GB of RAM, and Adreno 420 graphics. The devices sports a 5.96" AMOLED screen with...
This time around, Google has commissioned Motorola to take up the task of making the Nexus 6, which interestingly enough, similarly looks like the new Moto X – released not very long ago to the delight and disappointment of some. Attached with a starting cost of $649.00, it’s undoubtedly a stark reversal...
At $349, the Motorola Nexus 6 is still a decent pick for a beastly-sized Android phablet with the promise of timely Android updates - both major launches and security patches - by the end of the year.
Motorola Moto G Review
While most of the buzz has been for its brother the new Moto X, there is officially a new Moto G as well. Of course, there isn't exactly all that much that is new about the device, as it shares quite a bit in common with last year's Moto G. The major difference this year is in the design of the device,...
Back for round two, the Moto G’s successor takes the same approach of catering to those on a tight budget, but it’s now sporting a larger chassis due to the increase in size of its display. On top of that, it receives the usual set of hardware upgrades in the process – so it’s very much bears the traditional...
The 2014 Motorola Moto G comes with a 5-inch IPS display running a resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels. The processing power is ensured by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset paired with 1GB of RAM. In the imaging department, the Moto G (2014) features an 8MP primary camera and a 2MP secondary shooter on the front.
