Best Phone Of 2015 Vs. Best Phone Of 2016

Compare Guru
After a record year, regarding smartphones, we take a look at the most highly rated phone of 2015 compared to that of 2016.
2016 was a wild year for smartphones. There was everything from modular phones (in various guises) to exploding phones and everything in between.

The Problem With The Idea Of The 'Best' Phone

People often ask what the best phone is on the market. They do so without realising that the answer is far more complicated than they'd expect. Firstly, there is no such thing as a perfect or best phone. Every phone has some drawback or disadvantage, no matter how small. Secondly, the top rated - or best - phone on the market might not be the right phone for you. mobiledeals_article_banner
