THE BEST SMARTPHONES OF THE YEAR

WITH THE APPLE’S INTRODUCTION OF iPHONE 7 AND iPHONE 7 PLUS, THE GIANTS OF THE TELEPHONE INDUSTRY HAVE COMPLETED THEIR BEST MODELS. WE CHOSE THE FOUR OF THE BEST SMART PHONES ON THE MARKET JUST FOR YOU.  

Nowadays, brands introduce their models that can be described as their flagship every year. Choosing the one among the top level models get harder every day. Now, we even put aside the question of IOS or Android and ponder on which model of IOS or Android is the best. While choosing the four smart phones, we ignored the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, because while we were preparing the magazine for publishing the company recalled all of the phones around the world because of battery explosion cases and also decided to remove the model from the market completely. Therefore, we did not reserve a spot for the new Samsung model among our selections here. You will be introduced to only two iOS devices and two Android devices in our pages.

SONY XPERIA XZ
The Sony Xperia XZ, which has a new and refined design, uses a light metal called Alkaleido for the back face of the phone, which increases its durability. The 5.2-inch Full HD screen gets even more colorful with its TRILUMINOS technology. One of the most stunning features of the phone, which brings back dust and water resistance with Sony’s IP68 certificate, is its camera. The 23 MP rear camera of the device uses a 1/2.3” Exmor RS sensor. The device’s tri-image detection stands out just as much as its BIONZ image processing engine and 24 mm F2.0 lenses do. Thanks to this, while capturing clear, un-interfered images, the quality of the images captured in low light is increased. The camera’s SteadyShot technology with 5-axis stabilization allows its user to record more clear videos in 4K when in motion. The phone, which is sold in forest blue, platinum, and metallic black, has Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 3 GB RAM, and 32 GB of eMMC storage space.

HTC 10
The new HTC, which especially appeals to music enthusiasts, has an Android 6 operating system, 5.2-inch QHD screen, 32 GB storage space and 12 MP camera. A sound quality, which makes a difference when you wear headphones, awaits you thanks to its Hi-res audio feature. The sound quality is also great without the need of headphones, because BoomSound speakers are very strong. The image stabilization feature of both the front and back cameras that increases the quality of video calls is quite stunning along with the device’s structure that doesn’t slip and fits in your hand.

iPHONE 7 and iPHONE 7 PLUS
The new iPhones that have a similar design to the 6S’s are made of rolled aluminum. It has an A10 Fusion chip that has 64-bit support and quad-core. While two of these work at a high frequency (forty percent faster than the A9 in the 6S,) the other two activate, consuming one fifth of the energy, when performing more basic operations. The battery lifespan of the device has been increased by an hour (to approximately 13 hours.) While its graphical performance has been increased by 50 percent compared it to its predecessor, the camera also takes in 50 percent more light with the new lenses.

Compared to its predecessor, its new 12 MP camera is 60 percent faster and 30 percent more energy efficient. The Quad LED flash also generates 50 percent more light. The number of cameras with an optical image stabilizer increases to two in the iPhone 7 plus. The second 12 MP camera shoots wide angle. Therefore, the area depth is increased with software support.

There is one stereo speaker on the top and another on the bottom of the device. The 3,5 mm audio jack gives up its spot to the Lightning, which is used for charging and data transferring. In addition, Apple’s new phones can stay up to 30 minutes at one meter deep under the water since now they have the IP67 certificate.
