9. LG G5
The best innovation in a smartphone we've seen this year
Weight: 159g | Dimensions: 149.4 x 73.9 x 7.7 mm | OS: Android Marshmallow | Screen size: 5.3-inch | Resolution: 2560 x 1440 | CPU: value | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 32GB | Battery: 2800mAh | Rear camera: 16MP | Front camera: 8MP
LG's back, and with an innovative bang. This is a phone that's designed to fall apart - well, come apart at least. You see, on top of the clever dual camera there's a clip at the bottom that lets you pull the battery out.
That's good in itself - too many phones lack a removable power pack - but you can attach new modules to improve the audio, battery life or camera grippability with more to come.
Another 'alternative' phone from LG, and we're big fans of the brand trying to keep separating itself from the rest of the market.

Also consider: Last year's isn't a million miles away from this phone in terms of spec, and it's a darn sight cheaper now. It's not got the attractive metal body, but if you can rustle up the leather variant you're getting an absolute steal of a smartphone.
