If you look at how far cell phones have come in the past 10 to 15 years you can do nothing but simply be amazed. It was once the high of cell phone technology to be able to simply access the internet through paid mobile data. Now you can have a small business phone systems that are capable of wirelessly streaming HD footage while toggling several other important functions all at once. Simply put, cell phone providers are now expected to offer the world to their customers and they have to do it fast. Innovation comes quick and customers aren’t very patient so we decided to pick out a few smartphones that really caught our eye. Without further ado: Here are 10 of the most exciting smartphones hitting the shelves in 2016!
Apple has become more than just a brand, they have become a status symbol. No matter what opinion you may have of Apple or the business phones that they offer, you have to admit that there is something seemingly important simply in owning one of their phones. This September we should see one of the world’s most popular tech companies release their next phone: the iPhone 7. At this point in time there hasn’t been much in the way of details leaked regarding the phone. What we do know is that the phone is likely to be stronger, more durable, and potentially even waterproof to a certain degree. We expect an improved screen resolution and multiple options in terms of screen size (4.7 inch and 5.5 inch). There are also rumors bubbling around that Apple plans to ditch the headphone socket for a Lightning port. We’ll see. Regardless of the upgrades or lack thereof we fully expect the iPhone 7 to be the best selling smartphone on the year.
Microsoft Lumia 950 XL
Microsoft just won’t be left behind and we have no problem touting their newest phone, the Lumia 950 XL. The Lumia is destined to be an overlooked phone if only for the fact that it isn’t priced as competitively as some of the other models on our list. Still, you are getting a mobile version of the hyper efficient Windows 10 inside of a powerhouse of a device. The Lumia 950 XL comes with a 3340 mAH battery and a host of other hardware improvements. You have a 20 mega pixel rear camera with a 5 mega pixel front camera and all your photos look great on the 5.7 inch screen. Great resolution, sharp colors, and an easy to navigate touch screen make this one of our favorite devices on the market.
