PhoneArena Awards 2015: Best large smartphone
This brings us to today's post in our PhoneArena Awards series – it is time to honor the best extra-large smartphone of 2015. And our top pick will hardly come as a surprise. It is made by the company that single-handedly kickstarted the phablet category and made us rethink what the upper limit to a phone's size should be. Ladies and gents, the best large smartphone of 2015 is the...
Samsung Galaxy Note 5
If a large, powerful, well-made smartphone is what you need, this is definitely one of the first models you should take a look at. And look at it is what you'll be doing for quite some time, as the Galaxy Note 5 is quite the attractive smartphone – made of glass and metal, it is a device that makes heads turn. But design is far from the only reason why we chose the Galaxy Note 5 as this year's best large smartphone. The Galaxy Note 5 also performs to par in every department, has the specs to make a geek drool, and packs a rich set of functional features, the S Pen stylus being among them. Simply put, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has all it takes to justify both its premium price tag and its top place in the category.
Runner-up: Huawei Nexus 6P
Powerful and stylish, the Huawei Nexus 6P is a worthy successor to last year's Nexus 6 and one of the best large smartphones you can get right now. There's just so much value that you get for your $500 bucks – premium design and build quality, a big and crisp display, a fast and capable camera, and the buttery-smooth performance of the newest Android release to date, 6.0 Marshmallow. And that's just part of the whole package. The Nexus 6P also treats you to goodies like front-facing speakers, a fast fingerprint scanner, USB Type-C connectivity and fast charging. If that's not enough to make a great phablet at a great price, we don't know what is.
