Almost all flagship phones do the same stuff, have almost the same processing prowess, have similar designs and are made from the same materials. So, if they are going to set themselves apart from the herd they have to offer something different – in short, something innovative.
It might be a fingerprint sensor, a heart rate monitor, a unique form factor or a technology that allows the customer to do more. If a vendor comes up with the right innovation that is easy and intuitive to use it can make consumers swoon and sales soar.
A good number of new handsets out this year set pulses racing, but there can always be one winner. Here’s our list of the phones with the most exciting new features this year.
Winner- Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
Innovation, thy name is S6 Edge. Consumers saw two displays and collectively aah-ed. More than 60 percent of our survey takers voted for this handset and we can see why. Samsung provided two separate displays on its phone and that wasn’t all. It went further by making sure the functionality behind the innovation made using the phone a breeze.
The two sloped edges give you quick access to select contacts, light up in different colours when you receive notifications and act as a ticker tape for all notifications, as well as being a dinky little bedside clock when you need to know the time!
Apple iPhone 6
The 6 packed some serious additional power compared with its predecessor. The fingerprint sensor was a nice touch, Apple Pay is fabulous, and the ability to seamlessly work on your documents and presentations back and forth across your iPhone, iPad, Macbook is a serious crowd pleaser.
LG G Flex 2
This curvy beauty promised to give people more! Incredibly immersive, the 5.5-inch P-OLED screen is a pleasure to watch visual content on, the key on the back is intuitive, whether to wake up the screen or to take a quick photo, and the Laser Autofocus is fast and accurate. Right on the money!
Sony Xperia Z3 Compact
Small form factor and superior function. The incredible camera put it in a league of its own for what it could achieve in that size.
