Top Best Smartphones of 2016

This year was a great one for Smartphone across iPhones, Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry.
For the first time in years IDC is predicting a 9.8% shipment in Smartphone amounting to 1.43 billion units, Down From 27.5% Growth in 2014. While pundits are of the opinion that smartphone prices will drop in 2016, we can actually say that is happening already with the likes of OnePlus and Xiaomi, though we still don't see most of the flagship phone makers dropping prices.
Smartphone Platform: iOS, Android, Blackberry and Windows
The most important decision people have to make this year was picking an operating system platform which probably work for them the best.
For most techies, Android seem to be the best choice, so because it allows for customization and tons of free apps. iOS appeals to premium customers who are interesting in a stable working device. For others who grew up in the Nokia era, Windows phone seems like a good choice, but the platform hold a very small percentage of the market, and also has the least of app developers.That could change in 2016 with the launch of windows 10.

This year we are rating the phones base on what they offer best. So here is our verdict

Best Budget Phone
                                                            OnePlus X
At $250, we can agree that, its only OnePlus Global, and perhaps Google with its shiny, new, Nexus 5X, at $380, that can produce a phone that rival the iPhone and the Galaxy S device, with Design and Spec of OnePlus X. 
The aesthetic quality is normally found in a well established Tech brand Companies likes Google, Apple and Samsung, and certainly not from China. Interestingly it is from China. 
The OnePlus X At 140 x 69 x 6.9mm is the smallest and slimmest smartphone within the OnePlus range. The OnePlus X comes in two exquisite design, built from fire-baked Ceramic or Onyx Black Glass. The Onyx comes in black glass and a metal bezel, weighing 138g, thus making it the lightest One Plus Smartphone. The Limited Edition Ceramic model  weighs 160g, which is still lighter than the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus One. 

The OnePlus X features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with Adreno 330 graphics, supported by 3GB of RAM. Though the OnePlus is slightly higher with Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, Adreno 430 graphics and 3GB or 4GB of RAM.
OnePlus X has 2525mAh battery power, meaning the new smartphone might not last quite as long as the other android flagship high end phones currently, 
OnePlus X has 16GB of internal memory,  with microSD support for storage expansion up to 128GB, something that is rear in 2015.  The company's other previous models, OnePlus 2 or OnePlusOne offers no microSD expansion.


Phone With The Best Camera
                                                            iPhone 6s Plus 
In shooting situations, such as landscapes, portraits and selfies in daylight and at night the iphone 6s Plus performed better than Sony Xperia z 5, LG V10, Galaxy Note 5,S6 and S6 Edge. It tested best in color accuracy, clarity and contrast. 
The iSight camera captures advanced 12-megapixel still photos. That’s why we’ve added a state-of-the-art sensor, a new image signal processor, advanced pixel technology, Focus Pixels, improved local tone mapping, and optical image stabilization. The iphone 6S Plus can shoot 4K video.

The iPhone 6 Plus's killer feature is superfast phase-detection autofocus (what Apple calls "focus pixels") that blows away the competition. Point the camera at someone or something, and they appear sharp instantly
The only drawback is that the 12 million Pixels come shot of other flagship phones like the Sony Xperia Z5 with 23 million pixels, the Samsung S6 has 16 million pixels and so does the LG G4

Other Phones in this category are: Sony Xperia Z 5, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6

Fastest Phone
                                                          iPhone 6s Plus 
We are not measuring spec or benchmark but ability to deliver task as swift as possible. Though the iPhone comes in what some may consider low spec, but in terms of performers, it has in the last few prove that when you have a hold on software and hardware give the company an edge, Because Apple makes both the hardware and the operating system for iPhone. The iPhone 6s performed better when opening file, taking pictures, and gaming.
With the  A9 processor in the new iPhone and  with up to 70 percent faster CPU performance and 90 percent graphics,
