Best Smartphones of 2016

2016 was a novel year for smartphones. But, which ones were the best of the best? Today, this is what we aim to find out, especially for those looking for gadget gift ideas. Below we have detailed our picks:

iPhone 7 Plus


First off, the iPhone 7 Plus is possibly the best-looking smartphone currently on the market. There are those who feel that its size makes it a pain to hold, but there’s no denying that this 5.5-inch smartphone is excellent.

With this incarnation, Apple sticks with the iPhone 6S design but have added some improvements, like an integrated camera bump and rerouted antenna lines. There are also a ton of new colors for you to pick from and, to make things even better, the casing is water resistant.

Although the iPhone 7 Plus looks like the iPhone 6S, the inside has received a massive overhaul. For instance, this smartphone is powered by Apple’s super fast A10 Fusion processor. The camera has also been updated and now has two 12MP sensors with the ability to 2x optical zoom. And, that’s not all, the iPhone 7 Plus runs on the iOS 10, Apple’s latest operating system, which means that you won’t have any trouble playing your favorite casino games at Royal Vegas Online Casino.

We’re not going to sugarcoat things and say that this phone is cheap or that it’s size may not prove to be a pain for some. But, what we can say is that it is worthy of your consideration.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge


Although not quite as good as the iPhone 7 Plus, it’s safe to say that the Galaxy can hold its own. It has a brilliant dual curved display so that the screen bends around on both sides.

With this feature, this phone looks like no other currently on the market – except maybe its predecessor. This futuristic looking smartphone is great to look at and it’s definitely a device that will make your friends green with envy.

When you combine its great looks with an amazing display, industry leading power, a great camera, decent battery life, and unparalleled performance, it’s easy to see why this Samsung is not only the best-looking smartphone on the market, but why it is probably the only one giving Apple a run for its money at the moment. That is to say, it’s another great option for those who love to visit sites like Royal Vegas online casino.

Google Pixel XL


If you love virtual assistants and large screens, the Google Pixel XL is most definitely the phone for you. But, that’s not all it has going for it, the Google Pixel XL features a metal and glass chassis, excellent camera, lots of power (thanks to Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon processor) and a virtual assistant and other software that work in perfect harmony with this phone’s hardware. Although not as good as the two phones listed above, you can’t deny that Google’s addition to the market is a brilliant one.

iPhone SE


There’s a saying that goes, “small in size, big in surprise” and we daresay that it fits the iPhone SE to a tee. Many of the smartphones currently on the market boast large 5+ inch screens but this isn’t something that impresses everyone. For instance, what if your hands are tiny? Although this isn’t a problem that many of us have to deal with but, the bare bones of it all is that there are those of us who prefer small phones – at least the ones that don’t sacrifice high-end specs.

If this is you, then the iPhone SE is a perfect addition to your mobile device arsenal. It boasts a 5-inch screen and power that rivals the iPhone 6S. Some of its notable features include 2GB RAM, a 12MP rear camera, Apple Pay, Apple A9 chipset, and retina display. With all these features, it’s easy to see why some call this mini-smartphone a pocket rocket.
