10. Samsung Galaxy Note 5
The Note5 was released in August 2015, but it seems that it still manages to be among the best smartphones on the market, not just thanks to its stats, but also thanks to the following this phone family has gained over the past few years.
The 5.7-inch screen smartphone sells for over $500 unlocked and it has some really cool features. The phone comes with a preinstalled Android Lollipop which is upgradable to Marshmallow. It comes with a 16 MP back camera and a 5 MP front camera that can reliably be used for video calls and all the selfies you want. The Galaxy Note 5 comes with extra security layers as it requires your fingerprint to be unlocked.
The one thing people seem to be complaining about is the short battery life, but that seems to be a recurrent theme with smartphones in general. It should be mentioned that the phablet is powered by a non-removable Li-Po 300 mAh battery.
And now, let’s see what else we have on our list of best selling smartphones in the world: 2016 rankings.
