Called major smartphones or PHABLET, these mobile XXL screen diagonals bring great visual comfort and excellent battery life for most. Here’s our selection of the top 10 models.
Nobody believed, Samsung has done yet: convince users of the value of a great smartphone. From 2011, the Galaxy Note Korean have sold very well.So they have even convinced the whole competition. Some went to offer smartphones 6 inches diagonally, almost tablets. Even Apple was convinced since 2014 with the iPhone 6 Plus – and the iPhone 6s More and iPhone 7 Plus 5.5-inch models.
No price limit for the Top 10. We just selected the best PHABLET the moment. XXL smartphones, from 5.4 inches diagonally, entering the top 10 of our comparative.
Comfortable to watch, not necessarily to wear
The main advantage of PHABLET is their autonomy, usually much higher than that of smartphones conventional size. An advantage that is not found in the iPhone, which does not manage to take the lead. The large screens of these devices are also fruitful for the players, with excellent visual comfort.
With such a diagonal screen, these are almost unusable PHABLET one hand.Although some interface can be “reduced” to be more accessible, the weight of the device requires a firmer grip and therefore more tiring. Another drawback, these devices are struggling to fit in a pocket of jeans, especially when it comes to seating.
10. Samsung Galaxy J7
This is the surprise of this ranking, with a lower rate to 300 euros. The Galaxy J7 owes much of his note to his phenomenal self, but also to his good AMOLED screen and its value. At this price, it will accept any design and an average picture quality.
Overall rating: 8.21 / 10 | manufacturer Price: € 299
9. Meizu Pro 5
The serious alternative to current flagships, this large 5.7-inch smartphone cost significantly less. Ultra tough and powerful, this model can not, however, it is true, compete in the photo with the latest Galaxy. Finally, it is not compatible with the 4G band of 800 Mhz, used mainly in France by SFR.
Overall rating: 8.41 / 10 | manufacturer Price: € 499
8. Apple iPhone 6s More
With its function Touch Force and its large 5.5 inch screen, the iPhone 6s Plus is always a safe bet among Apple smartphones. Despite its thinness, we would have appreciated a little less high and wide housing but the satisfaction of having hands a powerful smartphone, responsive and enduring rather soon forgotten this inconvenience.
Overall rating: 8.48 / 10 | manufacturer Price: € 769
7. iPhone 7 Plus
At first, instead of the iPhone 7 More in this ranking may surprise, as the new crop has progressed in terms of display, power, and image. But it also suffers from an aging and above all a very perfectible autonomy design. A great smartphone, but less exciting than expected.
Overall rating: 8.48 / 10 | manufacturer Price: € 909
6. Moto X Play
This PHABLET almost all. Certainly, she gets a little plump style of X, but its performance is consistent with that expected of a good mid-range. And even more in terms of endurance and quality display, with a screen 5.5-inch ultra bright.
Overall rating: 8.56 / 10 | manufacturer Price: € 349
5. OnePlus OnePlus 3
The highly anticipated third release of OnePlus did not disappoint. Ultra powerful with its latest-generation processor (Snapdragon 820), this smartphone the beautiful 5.5-inch screen impresses with its new metal design and excellent value for money.
Overall rating: 8.83 / 10 | manufacturer Price: € 399
4. Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge More
In 2016, the Galaxy S6 Edge More still deserves his place in the rankings. It is appreciated for its large, beautiful Super AMOLED screen of 5.7 inches – 5.5 inches cons for the S7 Edge, its slender dimensions and exceptional picture skills, including in low light.
Overall rating: 8.88 / 10 | manufacturer Price: € 699
3. Samsung Galaxy Note 7
Despite the explosion of battery problems which Samsung has faced, the Galaxy Note 7 is not less than one of the best PHABLET market. It has all the quality of the Galaxy S7 associated with a stylus for precision. Without his disappointing endurance, he would have had every chance to take the top spot.
Overall rating: 8.97 / 10 | manufacturer Price: 859 €
2. Huawei Mate 8
Mate this remains one of the most enduring models and most powerful of the market. It is also the largest selection of this with its huge and beautiful 6-inch screen. And as the borders of the latter have been minimized, it is not bigger than an iPhone 6s Plus. A feat and reasonably priced!
Overall rating: 9.01 / 10 | manufacturer Price: € 599
1. Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
Launched the Samsung Galaxy S7 in February, the Galaxy S7 Edge keeps the lead. It is the first place to its sophisticated screen, its picture quality, power and especially its exceptional battery life . The defending champion is on track to remain so.
