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

Helping you choose the best mobile phone since 2008

3. Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

The best-looking phone around right now

OS: Android 5 | Screen size: 5.1-inch | Resolution: 1440 x 2560 | RAM: 3GB |Storage:32GB/64GB/128GB | Battery: 2560mAh | Rear camera: 16MP | Front camera: 5MP

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge has all the power and features of the table-topping S6 (amazing camera, stunning power, absorbing screen), but offers some sublime looks that have seen it winning awards all over the last year.

The curved edges might not add a huge amount of functionality, but this is a phone that looks genuinely different while offering some of the best features of any phone right now. The camera is brilliant, the screen is really sharp (and wonderful for movies) and the fingerprint sensor works speedily.

If you're after a phone that's wildly different from anything else with a great feature set and tip-top camera, this is your choice - and even better, it's now dropped in price, so you're getting all the design at an incredibly decent price.

Also consider: Either look for a larger option, with the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ everything that's good about this phone but bigger and better. It's more expensive though, so you could go for the 'normal' Samsung Galaxy S6 to go lower on price and get all the same power - just without the curves.
