3. Samsung Galaxy Note 5

As slick as its glass back

OS: Android 5.1.1 | Screen size: 5.7-inch | Resolution: 1440p | Memory: 4GB | Storage: 32GB/64GB | Battery: 3,000mAh | Rear camera: 16MP | Front camera: 5MP

Take note of this high-ranking Samsung phablet, because it's the best phone we've tested with a spacious 5.7-inch display. It has the best display on any platform right now.

It ditches the plastic casing and back everyone, but it did make a few key sacrifices along the way. The battery life is no longer swappable, and the microSD card slot is missing.

While some long-time fans are vocal about these two missing features, the Galaxy Note 5 still splitscreen mode and the best camera (tied with the Samsung Galaxy S6 that has the same module).

It's more expensive than other phones, but the inches you get in return may be worth the price you pay for most trusted monitor.
