The best Android phones of 2016 
Who wouldn’t like to buy a top-of-the-line Android phone? However, there are so many options and brands to choose from. This little guide gives you the specs and features of the top 10 Android phones introduced in 2016
Picking up the best Android smartphone from the wide range offered by top companies like Samsung, LG, Sony, etc, has become a real challenge. This is more so as various local companies and some Chinese companies have entered the market with phones that are cheap, yet have advanced configurations.
From sleek devices with premium designs, power-house configurations and smart features, to all-round great devices, these affordable phones have grabbed substantial market share. The Android ecosystem is populated by a staggering variety of attractive phones.
This Is the Most Popular Smartphone of 2016 
Apple’s big 2016 iPhone 7 wasn’t the year’s most popular smartphone, according to new report.. The iPhone 6s, introduced in 2015, was the most popular in 2016 with more than 60 million units shipped during the year, research firm IHS Markit said
Apple discloses the number of iPhones it sells every quarter, but it doesn’t break out sales of individual models, leaving the guesswork to market researchers like IHS. IHS tracks shipments of over 350 smartphone models from various manufacturers
The iPhone 6s, which went on sale in 2015, was Apple’s flagship handset from January to September the following year. Apple continues to sell iPhone 6s, but it’s since been relegated to a support role behind the iPhone 7 in its smartphone lineup.
Android Nougat 
|Final release||7.1.2_r39 (5787804) / October 4, 2019|. Android Nougat (codenamed Android N during development) is the seventh major version and 14th original version of the Android operating system
The LG V20 was the first smartphone released with Nougat.. Nougat introduces notable changes to the operating system and its development platform, including the ability to display multiple apps on-screen at once in a split-screen view, support for inline replies to notifications, and an expanded Doze power-saving mode that restricts device functionality once the screen has been off for a period of time
The new app notification format received particular praise; while the multitasking interface was seen as a positive change, reviewers experienced that several apps were incompatible with the feature. Critics had mixed experiences with the Doze power-saving mode, but faster app installs and tweaks to the user interface were also reviewed positively.
Top Fastest Smartphones 2016 
Top Fastest Smartphones 2016 – Which phones made the list?. Here we bring you a list of the mobile phones that got a real powerful and fast performance processor
One of the most popular mobile benchmarks, Antutu, has released a list of the top fastest smartphones in May 2016, with the top four being from Chinese companies. With both Samsung and Apple being outclassed in this aspect by these companies.
The RAM isn’t just the ideal number to look at when talking about the speed of a device, even the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge (4GB), iPhone 6S (2GB), and iPhone SE (2GB), all have way lesser RAM value than the top winners in this list but yet still rank fifth,sixth and seventh position respectively.. Any real competition as the fastest mobile phone of the year dropped as from eighth place – LGG5, with the remaining two not coming in as strong.

Six of the best Android smartphones 
Huawei’s P9 is the Chinese manufacturer’s latest top-end smartphone and its best by a country mile. With a smooth, rounded metal body, all-glass front and lovely in-hand feel, the P9 is every bit a premium device
It also has two good cameras – one black and white, one colour – which are fun, a very fast fingerprint scanner on the back and a battery that lasts more than a day. The only downside is the software, a modified version of Android 6.0 Marshmallow that’s neither horrendous nor quite as good as it should be.
Samsung has hit the nail on the head with the Galaxy S7 Edge. The phone has a stunning 5.5in (14cm) quad HD screen with curved edges and a minuscule bezel, which makes this large-screened phone quite narrow and much easier to handle than other phablets
The best Android smartphones of 2016 
From Samsung to OnePlus and Sony to HTC, we rank the best Android flagships of 2016.. Another grey and damp summer is upon us, so it’s time to look at the very best smartphones on sale right now
It’s been another vintage year for flagship smartphones, and while some may argue the market is starting to saturate and technological advance is slowing, some unique features here have helped to keep 2016 as interesting and exciting as ever. Whether it is Huawei and its monochrome Leica lens, the LG G5 and its modular design, or Sony’s refreshed and rebranded Xperia X, this gathering has something for everyone with a budget from under £200 to over £500.
Unfortunately, the X is something of a disappointment; it’s not even an Xperia Z5 in a new suit, it’s just the same suit with a couple of new colours.. “It’s just another phone,” my colleague Oliver Cragg says with a deflated look on his face
Best Android Smartphones 2016: The Top 10 Android Phones You Can Buy Right Now 
Six months on from our last Top 10, here’s the Christmas 2016 list, with mainly new content – as you’d expect in a busy smartphone world. And, in terms of variety and value, we’ve never had it so good in the Android world, even if all but one of the top of the line phones are still as eye-wateringly expensive as ever…
Though I haven’t let money intrude too far – after all, many Android flagships will be £200 cheaper a year (and sometimes even six months) down the road, so if something’s too expensive then you’ve usually only got to be patient! I should also point out that, being based in the UK, i.e. in Europe, that the choices here are limited to those smartphones available in Europe and widely across the world, i.e
You might also ask which of the following Android smartphones I use personally? None of them actually, since I use a Marshall London for the stunning audio, yet I can’t recommend this to others in a list like this (it’s much too slow and limited for everything other than audio!). The guide prices are SIM-free, in UK pounds and including VAT sales tax, but take these with a pinch of salt – you’ll need to do your own pricing research in your own country!)
