Samsung Galaxy s7 Edge cons.
It just likes to absorb the fingerprints in the back: While we really are enjoying the design and ergonomic of the S7 Edge, the fingerprints on the back glass make us really disappointed.
No Infra-Red Port: If you are used to control your home digital appliances using the IR blaster on your phone, then the bad news is that Galaxy S7 Edge doesn’t come with the Infrared port.
Hybrid SIM Slot: On some regions, Galaxy S7 Edge is shipped with Dual SIM option and since the slots for the second SIM card and the memory card are the same, you have to decide between having 2 SIM Cards active at the same time, or just one SIM card with extra storage.
TouchWiz is not Everyone’s Favorite: Samsung is still optimizing the TouchWiz and it is still full of unnecessary pre-installed applications and sometimes cluttered interface.
No Removable Battery: The design of GS7 Edge and being water proof, don’t let the battery to be removable and you have to carry a power bank or your fast wireless charger, if you believe you need some more power.

The Apple iPhone 6s Plus is a single SIM (GSM) smartphone that accepts a Nano-SIM. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, 4G . At least one point Android smart phones even better than iPhone 6 Plus is that Android phones support the users to freely insert or draw out the battery to independently charging. To Apple iPhones, you can only charge the battery with the whole iPhone, which sometimes leads to great inconvenience to the users when they need iPhone to make urgent calls on the move while iPhone are fixed to supplement power.
Compared with its strong opponent Samsung Galaxy S5, iPhone 6 Plus is instantly dominated when it comes to the dust proof and water resistant display. As a latecomer, iPhone 6 Plus are supposed to surprise us more with some ground breaking changes, e.g., the display. But unfortunately, besides the bigger yet higher resolution retina, it seems no other innovation breakthrough even lack of dust and water resistant display. The price starts from 50000 onwards.

Google has recently added two new smartphones to its Nexus family – Huawei Nexus 6P and LG Nexus 5X . We got our hands on the flagship Huawei Nexus 6P launched in India at Rs.39,999 (32 GB variant).
To start off, the phone’s design is impressive, to say the least. It has a fresh look and feel to it. The rear panel of the phone gives it an elegant look with the aluminium finish, fingerprint sensor and the nexus logo on the panel. The phone is relatively thinner than most flagships in the market. The thicker top part of the phone with a black differentiated part that houses the camera and the flash also elevates the phone’s look.
The display is superb. The 5.7-inch quad-HD display has a 518 pixels per inch (ppi) density and provides a good viewing experience. The pixel density is higher than most other devices and so images seem to be sharper. Google is actually right to claim that this Nexus has the best camera yet. The rear camera is very fast and accurate, taking it closer to rivals like iPhone 6S and Galaxy S6 when it comes to shutter speed. Due to the larger 1.55 micron pixels that let in more light, the camera does well in low-light conditions. The camera comes with only three other modes including auto – photosphere, panorama and lens blur.
The Nexus 6P’s 2GHz octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, combined with 3 GB DDR4 RAM, is an industry-grade performer. There are only a handful of situations when the phone lags. Multi-tasking, changing between games and other functions are lightning fast on the device. The OS has been modified to make the experience much faster and better. Quick actions and menus make the phone more intuitive. Google Now on Tap, an artificial intelligence programme or machine learning programme uses the raw power of the search engine to show more info about the user’s search input. The feature works with movies, places, people and music bands.
The operating system also offers a ‘doze’ mode which is instrumental in saving battery drain. The phone essentially shuts down all app background activity when it is left untouched for a long time. Another noticeable feature is the app drawer on the top of the apps menu. The most used apps are reflected on top in the drawer followed by apps in the alphabetical order. The OS also comes with a search bar to allow users to look for specific apps. The phone comes with a 3,450 mAH battery which, in spite of the phone having a quad-HD display, manages nearly 24 hours. This is again aided by the doze mode. The phone also supports quick charging, which is also a plus.
Interestingly, the Nexus 6P also comes with a fingerprint scanner which is very fast and responsive. The OS also allows storage of up to five fingerprints. Other features on the device include GPS-A with GLONASS, NFC, Wi-Fi, 4G-LTE support and Bluetooth along with a host of sensors.
It seems we should get used to the lack of an option to increase the memory size on the Android devices (and of course iOS devices). Nexus 6P doesn’t come with memory card slot, and you need to stick with the primary storage. Since the Nexus 6P material is aluminum, Google has decided to ditch the wireless charging feature in favour of more elegant look. But the lack of wireless charging is a big negative point. Apart from these I believe that Nexus 6P is the best Nexus device to date, and Google has given the same weight to design and performance and has come up with a perfect result.
Although this device will have all the major features that we seen with LG G5 Flagship like wide angle camera and modular design but it will a bit less high end specs. The phone will have 3GB RAM and run on Snapdragon 625 which is an 14nm processor having 1.8 GHz Cortex A72 + 1.2 GHz Cortex A53 chipset. It will have Adreno 510 GPU and will come in 32 GB internal storage capacity. The phone will have same 5.3 inch always-on display with 1440 X 2560 pixels resolution. The price starts from 35000 onwards.
Specifications of LG G5 are:
- 3 inch 1440 X 2560 pixels display, 3D Arc Glass
- 4 X 73.9 X 7.7 mm, 156 grams weight
- Android v6.0.1 Marshmallow
- Octa Core Snapdragon 625 Processor
- 3GB RAM, 32GB Internal + Micro SD card
- 16 MP Primary wide angle camera
- 8 MP front facing camera
- 4G LTE, NFC, USB Type-C, Bluetooth
- 2700 mAh battery, Quick Charge 3.0
The LG G5 Lite is expected to have 2700 mAh battery and will support Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology. Other specifications of this phone will remain same as LG G5.
Well, the phone is just seen at China’s certification site whereas LG has not made any official announcement regarding this device. Still the LG G5 Lite name is also uncertain but we are quite sure that it coming soon. As per an estimation LG will release Lite version very soon in the month of April.
