Top 5 2016 Flagship Smartphones that still proves to be better than most 2020 mid-rangers

Proving that a flagship smartphone launched four years ago is still better than most midrange smartphones launched this 2020 is just saying that an old lion is still much more powerful than a dog at its youth. Flagship smartphones are usually every brand’s frontier packing every cutting-edge technology to show the brand’s prowess which definitely don’t get worn out quickly unless for the lack of support as the smartphone ages.

So in this article, you shall get to see the 5 best flagship smartphones I have successfully handpicked from every other in the market which proves to be still better than some midrangers this 2020.

1. Samsung Galaxy S7 Series

The Samsung Galaxy S7 series comprises of a phone with a curved edge-to-edge display (Galaxy S7 edge) and the other with a regular flat screen. Launched in 2016, the Galaxy S7 series received their last software security patch from Samsung in the month of September. Obviously, this smartphone is no more supported by Samsung but I certainly can’t stop looking through its specs sheet. The display screen actually shows Samsung has been in serious business making solid quality AMOLED displays. The display on these smartphones is crisp and packs in a lot of PPI. Incase this smartphone slips into a bowl of water, don’t freak out because it has waterproof and dust coating. Despite the small battery capacity, you can still get a lasting impression. For the camera, this smartphone even shoots more better photos still today coupled with its 4k video recording support.

Specs

5.1 Inch Super AMOLED Display, 1440 x 2560 pixels (577 ppi)

quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU with 4GB RAM

Android 6.0 Upgradable to Android 8

32GB or 64GB Storage, up to 256GB memory card

12MP Rear Camera and 5MP Front Camera

4G LTE (up to 150 Mbps download)

Fingerprint Sensor

3000 mAh Battery

2. LG G5

The LG G5 is in serious competition with the Samsung Galaxy S7. There are few similarities in the chipset and camera setup and video recording, but the LG G5 just seem to perform better in shoots; producing more detailed pictures with its dual rear setup. The LG G5 launches with the USB type C which is significantly better than the micro USB port on the Samsung Galaxy S7 series (though the micro USB on the Galaxy S7 was for a reason). The display pixels and resolution is almost identical to the Samsung Galaxy 7 only that the LG G5 spots an IPS LCD display with a 2,800mAh battery capacity.

Specs

5.3 Inch IPS LCD Display, 1440 x 2560 pixels (577 ppi)

quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU with 4GB RAM

Android 6.0 upgradable to Android 8

16MP + 8MP Rear Camera and 8MP Front Camera

4G LTE (up to 150 Mbps download)

Fingerprint Sensor

2,800mAh Battery

3. HTC 10

HTCs had long known as durable smartphones and the HTC 10 isn’t out of it. The HTC 10 also stands in the league of the LG G5 also featuring the Snapdragon 820 chipset but with a single rear shooter just as the Samsung Galaxy S7, the HTC 10 stands tall as a great contender in photography in its time. One still special about the HTC 10 is its stereo speakers which blasts out with rich audio quality good enough for the audiophiles.

Specs

5.2-Inch QHD Super LCD 5 Display

– 2.2GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 820 Processor

– 4GB RAM With 32/64GB Storage

– MicroSD Slot

– 12MP UltraPixel 2 Camera With LED Flash

– 5MP Front Camera With OIS

– Bluetooth4.2/NFC /4G/WiFi

– Quick Charge 3.0

– 3000mAh Battery

4. Sony Xperia XZ

Sony is quite known for display and camera and they can lavishly push in so much pixels to give you a great visual experience. But all that wasn’t visible yet on the Xperia XZ launched in 2016. Atleast, coupled in it is the same fast blazing processor found on every other smartphone at the top of this list. Just like the HTC 10, this smartphone has stereo speakers and a USB type C port. Though it has only a rear shooter, but it packs a whooping 23MP (which is certainly alot at that year) and a 13MP selfie shooter fixed perfectly on Sony’s signature frame design.

Specs

5.2 Inch IPS LCD Display,1080 x 1920 pixels (424 ppi)

quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU with 3GB RAM

Android 6.0 upgradable to Android 8

32GB or 64GB Storage, up to 256GB memory card

23MP Rear Camera and 13MP Front Camera

Fingerprint Sensor (side mounted)

2,900mAh Battery

5. iPhone 7 Series

The iPhone 7 Series only comprises of a 4.7 inches smartphone and a bigger sibling which sizes up to a 5.5 inches. The iPhone 7, unlike every smartphone on this list, is still supported by Apple till today. Coupled in it is the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 contender – the Apple A10 Fusion chipset. Despite having a mediocre battery capacity on the spec sheet, the iPhone still squeezes out enough battery juice to last longer than would expect (coming from an Android point of view on battery capacities) thanks to the hardware optimisation. The iPhone 7 camera is a single setup you can trust still blessed with the support for 4k video recording and a huge contender to these smartphones listed here (though, sometimes it can come short in come ways) but it falls short at display quality on paper but its size actually makes it up.

Specs

4.7-inch IPS Touch Display, 750 x 1334 pixels (326 ppi)

Apple A10 Fusion Chipset

2GB RAM

iOS 10 (upgradable to iOS 14)

Water Resistant & Dustproof

32GB, 128GB, or 256GB Built-in Storage

12MP Rear Camera

7MP Front Camera

4G LTE (up to 450 Mbps download)

Fingerprint Sensor (Front)

1960 mAh Li-ion Battery
