The best mobile of the first half of 2016

Without realizing it, and after yesterday was almost Christmas, we jumped from half going directly to July. And time to take stock of many aspects, such as how mobile take us to the holidays, what will be the rate that we hire , we must choose the factor suntan lotion not come again as crab Little Mermaid ... And, strictly speaking smartphone is just take a walk through catalogs and highlight which phones were the best.

6 months mobile technology we can both give and glimpse what the year will be smartphones. There are still notorious presentations and launches ( the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 , both new and rumored Nexus ...), but you can choose a model with the assurance that we will have as powerful as possible. It is already known: despite some change mobile as swimsuit, it makes sense to hold purchase a minimum of two years.

I go with the list. Perhaps it is somewhat predictable (a lot), but no one can deny that the phones that are in it they are on merit. Powerful, beautiful, with metal flag, able to get all the juice to reality.

Samsung Galaxy S7 / S7 Edge

Impossible not to start with a couple who loved me when I could taste it in the previous MWC. And it is that Samsung does not leave anything to chance in its construction and design, with nice appearance, attractive lines, unsurpassed feel and so much power inside and capabilities in the camera. Have their negative points, such as the heaviness of integrated software (somewhat less than in previous "S") or the high price to pay for it (less now than at the beginning of sales). Moreover, a mobile that is recommended with closed eyes.

Of all the smartphones that have come to light so far in 2016, the LG G5 is another of those recommended alone. Especially with recent price drops that allow, for example, buy it for 499 euros (spectacular at that price, I guarantee). Perhaps the first reviews incidiesen in the paint and touch on the fact that the modules aportasen not sufficient to acquire additional or (just) battery, but is the most powerful that can be.
