Best phone 2016: the 10 best smartphones we've tested

Helping you choose the best mobile phone since 2008

7. Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+

A beautiful phablet that will win many admirers

OS: Android 5.1 | Screen size: 5.7-inch | Resolution: 1440x2560 | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 32GB/64GB | Battery: 3000mAh | Rear camera: 16MP | Front camera: 5MP

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is one of our favourite phones around at the moment, and the supersized version takes the gorgeous lines and adds in a larger battery, more features to the curved edge and generally improves everything around.

This means it has one of the best cameras around, more RAM (enabling higher-power applications and slicker day to day use) and a really swift fingerprint sensor.

The Super AMOLED display is large and wonderful for both web browsing and movie watching - but really, the main reason you'd buy this phone is to have the most powerful Samsung phone out, and also one of the best-looking.

Also consider: There are two great choices here - and they're not what you might think. Obviously the smaller Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge makes a lot of sense, as if you're looking for the same but smaller it's right there. However, if you're brand-agnostic (VERY brand-agnostic) then look at the iPhone 6S Plus too - it's another phablet and is the best Apple has to offer, with a great range of apps to play with.
