IPhone 7 Apple as one of the most acclaimed especially thanks to its “phablet” dual lens, of course the Samsung Galaxy S7 version that has been widely applauded although the fiasco Note 7 can having eclipsed or Huawei P9 have It has been some major launch of a year in which the market has shown a slowdown.
iPhone 7 (on all iPhone 7 Plus)
Following tradition, Apple introduced in September its new flagship, the iPhone in July. This time, like the last two occasions, opted for two different versions in size, although one, the larger, brought a revolution thanks to its camera settings.
Double lens and an optical zoom x2 able to generate even the “bokeh” effect which can create artistic photos by blur funds. That portrait mode, however, came a while later with one of the operating system updates iOS 10 and now is an essential option for owners terminal of this mobile phone, the iPhone, that next year will be ten years of existence in the market.
2016 left him also a market of “smartphones” slowing. After years of impressive double digit growth in recent quarters we have seen a reduction in sales and although still growing, many mobile devices as before are no longer sold, even forcing veteran brands in the industry to consider the possibility of leaving the production and marketing of its own terminals.
Apple, however, has followed in his thirteen. And the move also has been offset by an accidental launch, the failure of the Galaxy Note 7 , Samsung terminal that was called to mark the hegemony of the South Korean firm internationally. This has enabled elevate the signing of the apple another season in this category although in the last quarter (the fourth, according to their fiscal balances) placed 45.5 million iPhones (48 million in the same period last year, fall of 5.3%), also weighing on profits (45,687,000 dollars, representing a fall of 14.4% compared to 2015).
That downward trend, expected by analysts, may be reversed in the next quarter coinciding with the Christmas season. It also expects the iPhone the tenth anniversary guess a brand-changer and return to the past.
But, yet, the iPhone 7 has again become the model of “smartphone” to fight. With improved camera (13 megapixels, optical stabilization, aperture F1.7, speed of 0.25 milliseconds), Apple has finally managed to waterproof the terminal.
Inside there is a self – made chip, the A10, which is up to 40% more powerful than the previous model. In the case of model iPhone 7 Plus a double lens that has been a cause for great adoption by consumers she was devised. This year, in fact, have learned that a good camera on a mobile is a guarantee of commercial success.
The device, continuista on aesthetics over its predecessor, has added two stereo speakers and will be remembered for being the first American firm (the Moto Z already did above) that ignored the plug “minijack” for headphones, and possibly set a precedent in the industry from now.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
It was one of the first to appear throughout the year. Seems like yesterday. But no, what happens, perhaps, it is that the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco has put Samsung on everyone’s lips, but worse. However, we cannot forget that this year appeared the brilliant Galaxy S7.
The terminal, with two versions of different designs and sizes (normal and curved). Both have a Super Amoled screen brightness and produces vivid colors and quality QHD (1,440 x 2,560 pixels). The first 5.1 – inch, are very similar to those of its predecessor dimensions, while the Edge version grew to the 5.5 inches.
Both are certified IP68, making them resistant to water and dust -sumergibles meter deep for a maximum of thirty minutes-being is another of those features that are gradually being standardized in the “premium” models since Sony, with its Xperia range, it became fashionable.
Inside is the powerful Exynos processor 890, the latest chip developed by Samsung. It is aOctacore (with four cores at 2.4 Ghz and 1.6 Ghz other four) and has advanced features to limit battery consumption while increasing performance speeds. In addition, it is supported by 4 GB of RAM, thus obtaining optimum performance and agile.
Equipped with ‘Always On’ display off -enables do with useful information such as the clock screen, the camera selected has been one of the spearheads of the terminal, high quality, and decided to take 12 megapixels and optical stabilization image their cameras achieve an F1.7 aperture. Yes, but the number of megapixel sensor down to 12 megapixels compared to the previous year , the image quality and brightness increased dramatically.
Another of the most advanced mobile which has also allowed elevate his signature to the Olympus of the largest manufacturers in the world has been the Huawei P9 , a powerful and small device that bet, before Apple, by a (certified by Leica Dual Camera ). Although neither it was the first mobile dual lens (formerly appeared the LG Optimus 3D or HTC M8), this year we have seen that the concept works and is called to offer new proposals in the coming years.
The Chinese firm also decided (and this is also beginning to be standardized) by one ‘phablet’. Both terminals have greater battery performance, better sound and higher inner chamber with a great design and overall quality.
Both versions differ in screen size: 5.2 and 5.5 inches with Full HD resolution (423 dots per inch; 401 in the case of model Plus), 500 nits LED backlight 20. That itself is not the most advanced of its rivals. In addition, the screen is pressure sensitive and the phone will come with 18 native applications that take advantage of this feature.
But the highlight of P9 is its dual lens camera. It has two light sensors with higher pixel size (25% larger than P8). Thus, the company captures 90% more light than the Galaxy S7 and 270% more light than the iPhone 6S. Its screen, 5.2 inch, is Full HD and the processor is self – produced, the Kirin 955 that moves at a speed of 2.5 GHz.

Go ahead that despite its commendable boldness and originality, has not been one of the most successful phones of the year, but it is necessary to applaud the effort and risky proposals, especially to a market, that of ‘smartphones’ increasingly more competitive and where more and more models are released are very similar among them.
Does the innovation curve is less now? Well, LG opted for the LG G5, a terminal that flirted with the concept of mobile-modular although without reaching the expected level. The idea was to play a bit like conventional computer where a user can exchange parts and components at will, although the result was something less ambitious. Still it has important features to highlight.
The terminal, high performance, can be “reconstructed”, removing and adding modules that make, for example, a camera professional cutting or an audio of higher quality. Screen of 5.3 inches and 2,560 x 1,440 pixel resolution, inside is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and 4 GB of RAM. His memory, 32 GB, you can be expanded to 2TB with microSD cards.
Also with the “Always On” system on your screen, as the camera, the LG G5 incorporates a dual rear chamber (16 and 8 megapixels). Together, they can capture wide – angle mode up to 135 degrees
Google this year has been covered with glory and criticism at the same time. Success by presenting a product, the Google Pixel Pixel XL and high quality, but at the expense of eliminating the value that had accompanied him with previous releases of the Nexus range extinct.
Although there is still no date of arrival in Spain, this particular model features a 12.3 – megapixel camera and F2.0 aperture, accompanied by an 8 – megapixel front. Available in only two colors (black and white), have an internal capacity of 32 and 128 GB, thus forgetting the 16GB version input and has shown that, today, is a storage something little.
Differentiated only by size (5 with Full HD resolution and 5.5 – inch qHD resolution) and battery (2770 mAh split the Pixel, 3,450 mAh in the case of model “phablet”) inside a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor supported to be found 4 GB of RAM that, on paper, would guarantee a good performance compared with existing models on the market rivals.
With fingerprints on the back (another of the features that are spreading) and NFC connectivity and USB Type-C as charging port (with fast charging). Of course, and this is something highly anticipated Android 7.1 runs under Nougat, the latest version of its operating system and has also been featured this season.
Sony Xperia ZX
Sony has continued expriminedo Orange Xperia although it has not been very successful. The Sony Xperia XZ was presented at the fair IFA Berlin 2016. It is a high – end terminal packed with technological innovations such as intelligent battery.
But if anything worthy of mention of this “smartphone” is your camera. The device has on triple sensor technology capable of capturing high quality photos of moving objects, even in low light conditions.
The sensor is expected to move to the object continues to be focused and able to immortalize it with vivid clarity. It also has a laser autofocus sensor that measures the distance to the object to take a clear picture even if you have light. All with stunning colors.
Minimalist design and made of metal, this “smartphone” is also spill – resistant, so nothing happens if you fall a few drops or an unexpected downpour.
While most smart phones tend to resemble each other , there are brands that try to differentiate and bet, even at the risk of being wrong, by original proposals. Lenovo has walked this path with its new terminal star, Moto Z , a “smartphone” modular designed for the user to decide how you want your mobile .
This mobile ‘premium’ is thin and lightweight (5.2 mm wide and 136 grams) and is made of aircraft grade aluminum and stainless steel military. It has a Quad HD AMOLED 5.5 inch screen and mounts a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor.

It also offers a high resolution camera of 13 megapixel, optical image stabilization and laser focus to get perfect snapshots capture any light. Moreover, its 5-megapixel front camera has a wide angle lens and flash, ideal for ‘selfies’.
