April is coming to end meaning that most of the phones which were announced in CES 2015 in the month of January will be available in the market. If not, then they might get launched in near future.
What this means to you as a consumer is that you’ll be able to buy the phones packing the latest in technology. We all know that the latest and the greatest of the flagship phones come at a high asking price and can’t be termed as value-for-money phones but hey, these phones pack the latest OS, come with new features and thus grant you bragging rights.
Note: These phones cover all the basic connectivity options like Bluetooth, microUSB, GPS with A-GPS, WiFi, 2G and 3G, 3.5 mm audio jack so I won’t mention them separately for each and every phone.
Here is the list of some of the best phones to buy in April 2015:
Samsung Galaxy S6
The Samsung Galaxy S6 is the most gorgeous Galaxy S series phone that Samsung has ever made. It’s covered by Gorilla Glass 4 on front and back and has iPhone-ish looks. It also packs the best in hardware available at the moment and is powered by Exynos 7420 chip baked by Samsung packing 8-cores in big-LITTLE architecture. It has 3 GB RAM for taking caring of all your multi-tasking needs.
Its other hardware specs include a 5.1” Super AMOLED 2K (2560×1440 pixels) display, 32/64/128 GB ROM, 16 MP AF rear camera with OIS and LED flash and a 5 MP front selfie unit, support for NFC and IR blaster, and an array of sensors including fingerprint sensor, barometer and heart-rate monitor, non-removable 2550 mAh Li-ion battery and runs on Android Lollipop 5.0.2.
If you can spend close to Rs. 60k then you should definitely consider buying Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.
Xiaomi Mi4 was launched in the last week of Feb 2015 but has recently received a permanent price cut and is now priced at Rs. 22,000 for 64 GB version.
