Apple iPhone 6s

Apple did just enough this year with their latest iPhone to warrant it making our list.

Nexus 6P

The only "phablet" we picked for our list was the Nexus 6P. It is generally regarded as the best stock Android phone on the market right now.

While Canada didn't see the Moto X Pure Edition released we did get the value based Moto X Play. We highly recommend this as a starter or simple phone for anyone.

Samung Galaxy S6

Samsung released 7 different Smartphones this year which in our opinion is about 3 too many. Their flagship Galaxy S6 phone is a fantastic Android smartphone that is currently very well priced.
  • 5.1", 1440 x 2560 pixels, 16M colours, Quad HD Super AMOLED
  • 16 MP autofocus camera with LED flash, OIS and HDR
  • 5.0 MP front-facing camera with dual video call
