Playing with Samsung mobiles is a treat like no other. Like it or not, the South-Korean giant is dominating across all spheres of smartphone arena and is doing a great job with its product-portfolio. The company has unleashed a slew of devices including the super-cool Galaxy S series that poses severe competition against the likes of renowned tech-giants, even against the mighty Apple!
Samsung has got a spunk that we barely see in any other smartphone manufacturer. The company understands its target audience perfectly, and despite all the ups and downs, it continues to create a better ecosystem for seamless work and play.
Here are the best of the best Samsung mobiles that we’ve seen so far in Indian and other countries!
1. Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge
The first on our list is the all new Galaxy S7 and its dual edged variant. Launched at MWC trade show, the stunning flagship fits in the sub-50k category with a tempting set of features and a super-cool design language. Though its edge variant flaunts a bigger panel, Galaxy S7 sticks with the same 5.1-inch Quad-HD Super AMOLED display, powered by an Octa-Core Exynos 8890 processor with 4GB RAM and Mali-T880 MP12. The phone packs immense power for seamless work and play, and stands out against all high-end players in the flagship market.
Apart from an upgrade under-the-hood, Samsung Galaxy S7 looks very similar to its predecessor Galaxy S6, which we all loved so much. The device is built on the foundation of S6, and removes some of its key downsides including lack of microSD card and a lot more. On whole, we feel, the 2016 flagship from Samsung makes a decent package for high-end users, and is edging towards perfection with features like always-on-display, Android 6.0 and IP68 certified waterproofing.
2. Samsung Galaxy Note 5
After seeing the radical design upgrades in Galaxy S6, we witnessed the latest member of Note line-up, and fell in love with it. The new Note 5 came out as the master of all kinds, and proved against history that big-screen phones can also make a difference. The curved back, improved S-Pen technology, and sharpest display made Galaxy Note 5 a real thing of beauty. S-Pen is the major USP, which lets you take down notes even when the display is off!
As far specs are concerned, Galaxy Note 5 makes a strong impression with a 5.7-inch Quad-HD Super AMOLED panel, Exynos 7420 Octa-core processor, and 4GB of RAM. The phablet rocks a 16-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front-facing snapper with 3000 mAh battery, making it a deal breaker for sure!
The 32GB variant of Note 5 is available at Rs. 42,900, while the 64GB model ships at a hefty 48,900 in India.
3. Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge
Despite being a year old, Samsung’s 2015 flagship makes into our top five. The handset brought a major upgrade over a dull Galaxy S5, and started a new line of high-end phones with good looks and top-notch features. To be fair, it can be said that Galaxy S6 redefined Samsung just as we wanted. The phone traded plastic for metal and glass, and incorporated a much improved and faster TouchWiz for seamless work and play!
Samsung Galaxy S6 includes some nifty downsides as well, but let’s just say, things like Exynos Octa processor, 3GB RAM, and wireless charging could forget all about SD cards or small batteries!
4. Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016)
After a long run with flagships and entry-level phones, Samsung decided to give a major reboot to its all-time favourite Galaxy A series. The company unleashed the upgraded iteration of Galaxy A7 with a thin metal frame, glass back, and powerful innards. The phone looked very similar to Samsung’s flagship offerings and packed a strong hardware setup with a full-HD Super AMOLED display, Exynos 7580 processor and 3GB RAM. It’s impeccable battery backup and good looks clearly gave a sign of Samsung’s progress against the likes of popular mid-range phone makers.
It is also worth noting that unlike Galaxy S6 and other high-end flagships, Galaxy A7 ships with a microSD card slot, alongside native 16GB. The handset boasts advanced Cat.6 LTE connectivity with dual-SIM functionality, and is currently available at Rs. 32,500 via online and offline channels.
5. Samsung Galaxy A8
Priced around 25k, Samsung’s another mid-range success, Galaxy A8 offers a complete package with good looks, top-notch innards, and super-strong battery life. The handset makes a perfect competitor for OnePlus 2 and renowned mid-range players, and flaunts a meticulously crafted metal body with a fairly slim profile.
Galaxy A8 looks a little expensive for 25k, but it’s worthy to note, the performance of this beauty is just amazing. It incorporates an octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor with 2GB RAM, and delivers smooth and lag-free performance without excessive heating. Whether it’s Asphalt 8 and Nova 3 or a Social Networking app, it handles everything quite easily.
If you’re shopping for a phone under 30k, no other option can match up against the power-packed Samsung Galaxy A8.
Summing up, these are the top five phones you’d love to buy form Samsung. There’s a more coming, but as of now, all these phones are the best that you get under different price brackets. Galaxy S7, S6 or A7, they all work seamlessly, and deliver a unique smartphone experience that you don’t find so easily.
