Smartphone buyer's guide: April 2016

20 April, 2016
The major releases for the first half of 2016 are out, time to see whats worth spending your hard earned cash on. For all the flagship goodness we saw at the MWC (and other events), theres an equal measure of amazing entry-level and midrange handsets out there.

Fix for iPhone SE. it's 16/64 GB storage, not 16/32

This analysis is made, it is subjective. Have you ever skipped several phones that are as performance over the exposed. To get the phones from Sammy S7, is the world's laughter. Most phones are unsuccessful in the world.

I would recommend General Mobile 5 Plus. It has metal frame, 5.5 inch 1080p display, 3 GB RAM, 32 GB Storage + MicroSD, Snapdragon 617 chipset with QuickCharge 3.0 support, USB Type-C, LTE-A Cat. 7, 13MP back, 13MP front camera with flash, 3100mah battery and it is an Anroid One phone so it comes with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and it gets latest updates. It costs €199 in Europe and some African countries.

Moto X Force
+ battery is great
- "glass" is easily scratched. A 1$/€ film protector does the job.
GSMArena is the only big site with no review of it (yet?).

I think of all the previous smartphone buyers guide published by gsmarena over the years, this one was the worst, lost its main aim to actually give good suggestions, even a really below per galaxy A5 made it to the list.

Just adding, the galaxy s5 its recieving Android 6.0.1.

No iPhone 6S included, but a Samesung Galaxy S5 is still a good buy? Lol.
