Most Expensive Smartphones in 2015

As every year, the major manufacturers present their new models of high-end smartphones. Prices are high as always, but a new trend settle for a few months: that of "luxury" versions of the same model, justifying a higher price by a new design and the finest materials. But what does he hide behind this new strategy and these exorbitant prices? Think together the question.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

All trademarks are getting into.

Since the launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, all the brands seem to follow the trend of versions "more" for their latest high-end smartphones. This is the case of the S6 and S6 Edge , but also offering a LG G4 Leather Version salted rate. HTC and its One M9 Plus also follow this trend. All these products have in common to propose the very best, at a rate between 700 and 1000 euros for the most expensive smartphones. To a lesser extent, Huawei also apply this strategy with its P8 and P8 Max , the price rises to 650 euros.

Natural materials, the smartphone as a luxury object.

How do they justify brands such high prices? Through design and conception "premium" products that use noble manners and take on board the latest technologies. A bigger screen with better definition, a fingerprint reader, a more substantial battery, all arguments to suggest a more expensive smartphone version of the base model.

But it is in design and materials that brands are betting big on this segment. Having the thinnest smartphone screen frame with virtually no border has become an important marketing issue that can be put forward to the consumer.

The use of glass, leather or aluminum are also in luxury products that they exhibit self, as can be done with a nice watch. Brands know, licked a product design with high-quality materials can be sold very expensive, Apple has understood this by displaying a 1019 euros for the most expensive smartphone version of its iPhone 6 Plus.

The phablettes Change the Game

Another fact to consider is the strong growth of the market for phablettes smartphones or giants. Consumers appreciate more and more the product range initiated by the Galaxy Note. Thus, the "Plus" versions of different brands often have larger screens. This allows to touch two segments, that of smartphones around 5 inches, and that of 5.5 inches or more.

This is a perfect opportunity for brands to offer more variation with a datasheet a little more muscular and a few dollars more on the bill. On larger versions, brands add such a qHD resolution or a bigger battery, giving additional arguments to the product, and justifying the highest award (according to them).

Most Expensive Smartphones: The psychological factor

Brands know, consumers always want what is the best. If price is a determining factor in the purchase act, some do not hesitate to spend fortunes every year or every two years for the "ultimate" mobile. It now remains for brands to move forward sufficiently convincing arguments.

You Like the S6 but curved screen of S6 Edge take your eye? Left to take the high-end, why not take the one you really want? When you spend 650 euros, are you really 50 or almost 100 euros? If you take the best of the best, you will be quiet several years ... or until the next model in 8 months! You understood, high tariffs are not an obstacle for everyone, and the brands know how to be convincing.

To hide the lack of innovation and distinguish themselves?

Manufacturers must annually provide the best and stand out in one way or another competition. But you might know, the real innovations are rare in recent years. The autonomy issue has not been resolved, photo sensors are improving, but take great shots for a long time, and ever larger screen definitions are relevant to the limited time.

This is also the same goes for certain components. Mobile processors are often the same on the high end or have very similar performance and more than sufficient for all common uses. We also find the same image sensors on different models. All of which, for an experienced user, feel warmed or minor changes.

That leaves the design, development and use of different materials to stand out. The appearance of a phone is extremely important in the act of purchase, and the marks put the package on this point to distinguish themselves and to convince us that we must regularly change the smartphone, because our old model was further dropped. Now it's for you to tell us what do you think of this trend of high-end smartphones and their prices?

Test: Sony Xperia E3

In September last year we were able to take control of the Sony Xperia E3 when it was announced during the IFA 2014. This is a mid-range device running Android and being equipped with a 4G chip. Interesting that Xperia E3?
 Test: Sony Xperia E3

Design of the Sony Xperia E3

The Sony Xperia E3 has a fairly standard design, see little original. The cool stuff coming in my direction, matte plastic processing, pleasant to the touch. The edges of the device are quite thick and the smartphone is quite heavy for a screen of only 4.5 ", which reveals the range of the terminal. We tested the Xperia E3 in white, but you can also get it in black, see brown.

Level ergonomics, Xperia E3 is the dimensions of a device equipped with a screen 5" to 4.5". Specifically ergonomics of the terminal is very good, the smartphone is not very large and the buttons are well placed, but this screen size it would have been possible to do much better. The Xperia E3 shows a pack of empty areas, particularly low, which does not allow to optimize the design ratio / screen.

Sony Xperia E3 screen

The Xperia E3 is equipped with a screen 4.5" IPS definition 480x854, 218ppi. It's able to generate about  197lx max brightness on white, which is very interesting, especially for good visibility outdoors. The pixel density is not amazing, people used to more directly see it. The viewing angles are not very good either and we detected a slight yellow tint.

Autonomy of the Sony Xperia E3

The Xperia E3 completes our classic test of independence to 60%, which is quite excellent, with 20% engulfed in the 3D test. With the Xperia E3, you will easily have a day and a half of independence in "normal" use, 2 days in lighter use. The battery is not removable.

"Performance of the Sony Xperia E3"

The Sony Xperia E3 is equipped with a small Snapdragon 400 Quad Core 1.2GHz which, in the interface, provides a correct experience but who clearly recalls the product range. Of course, this does not prevent you from using the device without frustration. It is at the level of raw performance that grinds more teeth 18600 points on the AnTuTu benchmark, enough to run most current games but not necessarily in the best conditions for the greediest, eventually you might be embarrassed . Sony Xperia E3 does not heat especially even after 30 minutes of play in 3D.

Loudspeaker Sony Xperia E3

Contrary to what one might think, the Xperia E3 does not have a system of front speakers. At the front you have the audio output up and down, the microphone is integrated into the design to be symmetrical, which can deceive. The speaker is on the back, down the hull. It offers sound quality very correct for a fairly low volume.

Photo and video quality of the Sony Xperia E3

In a Day Pictured Sony Xperia E3 offers one made ​​a little pale and lacking in detail. We were able to distinguish (not visible here, we must zoom) chromatic noise present in most images even in daylight which gives a saturated hue, by zones, it is quite unsightly.

At night the focus is complicated but besides that, strangely, the Xperia E3 is doing decently.
sony-xperia-e3-simple 01

In video, Sony Xperia E3 sound is OK but with a clearly audible breath when the environment is quiet. By day the colors are correct, with a white balance that does the job. The general report is nevertheless a bit pixelated, unaesthetic. At night the image is noisy and the development is very complicated.

4 versions for the iPhone between iPhone 6S and iPhone 7?

After the recent release of the Apple Watch, which is already a success, it now evokes the release of the next Apple smartphone. According to rumors, several models should appear even if we still do not know if we will see an iPhone 6S or iPhone 7 this year.

3 iPhone 6S and iPhone 6C pending the iPhone 7?

Apple has something to smile with the huge success encountered his watch connected even if critics are not necessarily good. What interests consumers and fans of the brand today, it is the appearance of the next iPhone and its features. The new Samsung Galaxy S6 is very good, fans hope Apple will respond and offer innovative models.

Logically, it is an iPhone 6S to be presented at the end of 2015, but rumors are many and we do not necessarily know what to think. The iPhone 7 however, should not be proposed before 2016 but Apple may offer a rather innovative intermediate model, and even more models.

According to latest information, the Cupertino company is reportedly developing a classic iPhone 6S and an iPhone 6S Plus. Two models that should logically be available before the end of the year. But that's not all,  Apple could offers iPhone 6C based on the same strategy as the iPhone 5C. Even if the model was not as successful as hoped, he still been sold well worldwide and colors have enticed many.

To finish, it evokes an iPhone 6 Mini to be proposed with a screen about 4 inches or slightly more in order to satisfy consumers who want an iPhone in a more practical dimension. This latest rumor, however, seems rather unlikely.

For now, we must trust only logic and wait a bit before analyzing the rumors. Leaks may be published on the approach of the release date iphone 7, ie in the autumn, and it is probably at this time that we can really know what to expect.

LG G4: all the latest information about the upcoming Korean phone

Earlier this year, LG lifted the veil on the LG G Flex 2, the second generation of its curved smartphone with a Snapdragon processor 810. And the manufacturer seems to work hard, since many rumors reaching us dropper for his next the flagship LG G4 that will be announced in a few days.
LG G4 Screen
The Korean wholesale leverages its standard bearer and LG smartphones is careful to offer an efficient product design licked to seduce users. His last standard bearer has allowed the brand to take a significant place in the heart of consumers, evidenced by its recent financial results for the historic brand .

LG therefore must not disappoint with its next smartphone star, it is expected to turn by users. We suggest you take stock of all that we know the next star of the Korean smartphone, the LG G4. Attention for the moment, these are just rumors, to be taken lightly so.

Sheet LG G4

According to the latest leaks, the device should offer the following specifications

  •     Display: 5.5 inch IPS with Quad HD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels
  •     Processor: 64-bit hex core Snapdragon 808 (four hearts and two A53 A57 cores)

  •     Dimensions: 149.1 x 75.3 x 8.9 mm
  •     OS: Android 5.1 + LG Lollipop UX 4.0 interface

Snapdragon processor 808 to prevent overheating: LG G4

If until now we imagined the LG G4 land on the market with a Snapdragon processor 810, like the HTC One M9 and the LG G Flex 2, nothing is decided yet. Earlier this year, Vice President of LG, Woo Ram-chan, praised the last bullet octo core 64bit Qualcomm, in response to numerous rumors of various overheating problems.

However, soon after the MWC, the Android Police editor revealed that Qualcomm's partners would replace the S810 with a Snapdragon 808 in its next premium. 
LG Snapdragon
Today, this is a recent benchmark of the device identified in the GFXBench database now reported the presence of a Snapdragon processor 808. Slightly less powerful than the 810 but still reserved for high-end, the Snapdragon 808 is a 64 bit processor hexa core composed of four hearts A53 and A57 two cores which benefit Qualcomm recent improvements in terms of cooling. An alternative solution that would allow the company to protect itself from overheating.

After the publication of this benchmark, a source close to the matter confided to Korea Time that LG had indeed decided to spend Snapdragon 810 -which obviously still suffer problems surchauffe- on his next upscale. A few days later, a second benchmark came, once again, confirm. while giving us a first glimpse of Snapdragon 808 performances .

As was already mentioned several sources, the processor should be accompanied by Ram LPDDR4. The same as that found in the heart of the last two flagships from Samsung. It was he who should produce the memory modules to its competitor. With a Snapdragon 808 and 3 GB Ram LPDDR4, the unit should provide excellent performance but does not he risk for comparing face some competitors powered by a Snapdragon 810 or face the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge and their Exynos 7420 processor?

In terms of the amount of memory, we will find two different models. First with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage and a second with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, like last year. In addition, unlike Samsung, LG has decided to keep the SD slot.
LG G4 Benchmark

Quad HD screen 5.5 inches on LG G4

Like the G3, LG G4 offer a Quad HD resolution screen. A document leaked last month has indeed confirmed a definition of 2560 x 1440 pixels on the next flagship of the brand. Something quite predictable, first because its predecessor already proposed the definition, then because we imagined evil LG heading to a higher resolution.

    Read: Buying Guide 2015: Cheap Smartphones To Less Than 200 Euros

Meanwhile, LG has officially presented the screen of the next flagship by way of press release. With a size of 5.5 inches, the new tile-based Quad HD LCD technology is presented as thinner and brighter than the G3 screen Compared with the previous model, the brightness should indeed be an increase of 30%, however, LG promises that it will not have any impact on the energy consumption of the display.
Screen LG-G4

As can also be read, the screen will display contrast 50% higher than the traditional QHD slabs. That suggests excellent visibility outdoors. Available colors have also been the subject of much improvement. Moreover, thanks to technology Advanced In-Cell Touch (TIA), the G4 screen would be even more responsive than the G3.

A photo sensor of LG G4"revolutionary" 16 Megapixels

After proposing two consecutive years, a photo sensor 13 Megapixels, LG will point this year to a 16 megapixel camera sensor. First mentioned earlier in the week through a first video teaser, this home sensor developed by LG Innotek is now official. Thanks to its f / 1.8 aperture, it will be able to capture 80% more light than the G3 and above all to compete with the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge in their chosen field: in low light photos.

As you already know, the higher the number following the letter F is, the more sensitive the sensor is to light and the better its performance in low light. And at this level, the LG G4 is, for now, the best on paper. In addition to its aperture of f / 1.8, 16 megapixel sensor used offers six lens elements twice as large as that of the G3 will allow it to offer better accuracy.
LG G4 Camera

On the front, it will take on a front camera of 8 megapixels. This year, all manufacturers have decided to improve the "Selfie" of their flagship stores and at this level, LG will go further than its competitors by offering 8 Megapixels instead of 5. In addition to its high resolution The sensor will also equip an ultra fine filter only 0.11 mm, which will prevent parasitic infrared rays coming reach the lens to provide more natural colors.

A premium design with leather back: LG G4

If we have often hoped that LG is finally put to the metal with its flagship 2015, it will obviously not for now. The LG G3 is dressed in a pretty elegant hull despite the choice of the plastic. This material gives a lightness to the product rather significant and LG will continue on this path

when we have surfaced the first press invitations for the event on 28 April, it was then discovered that the back of the device was covered with leather. Meanwhile, LG has confirmed the information, it will be good to true vegetable tanned leather, leather goods commonly used method, not a textured plastic imitation. LG could not introduce metal this year but seems nevertheless decided to offer premium materials on its next flagship.

It was hoped that the leather in question has been sufficiently treated to resist in time. Other options with plastic back will also be proposed.

A slightly curved screen: LG G4

In mid-March, LG G4 photo first reports surfaced on the web. The program, a mix between the G3 and G Flex 2 and especially a more aerodynamic design than its predecessors. Then one could guess, these images, the presence of a slightly curved screen. Meanwhile, Business Korea confirmed this information.

Like Samsung, LG will offer a well curved screen flagship this year. A technology that both Korean manufacturers seem determined to impose on the public. However, the curvature will be far less than the G Flex 2 since only 3000 mm against 700 mm (the higher the number, the lower the smartphone is curved). It will be almost imperceptible, visually speaking, but will provide better ergonomics and may potentially protect the screen if dropped since it will not completely in contact with the ground.
According to these early reports, power and volume control buttons will always placed at the back of the phone. The dimensions of the beast will be 149.1 x 75.3 x 8.9 x 74.6 mm against 146.3 x 8.9 mm for the G3.
LG G4 dimensions

LG G4: A removable battery 3000 mAh

Like the LG G3 and unlike its main competitors, the LG G4 will be equipped with a removable battery. Information indirectly confirmed by the Korean company that evokes a range provided by two batteries. In South Korea, it is not uncommon that the phones are delivered with two batteries so you can swap them if necessary. Nevertheless, the ability to change implies that it will be removable.

Meanwhile, the first official photos and technical features of the LG G4 have leaked and leave no doubt about the removable nature of its battery and its ability to be 3000 mAh. It should therefore have excellent battery life.
Removable battery-LG-G4

A new LG UX 4.0 interface

Like the G3, last year, the LG G4 will usher in a new version of the home interface of the Korean LG UX 4.0. Loosely based on the graphic codes of Android Lollipop and Material Design, it will propose new features, closer to the user, for example, Quick Code that will take pictures without unlocking the device to a simple double-click the volume key. An expert mode is also present. All this is of course reminiscent of that already offer the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge with the rapid launch of the camera and the Pro mode.
As suggested by the first teaser video posted by the company, this new version of the LG UX will be more intuitive than previous interface especially with a new widget called Smart Board which will centralize all essential information to the user the same place. For its part, Smart Alert is growing at with recommendations.
Meanwhile, a second video has surfaced. If the first was rather looks like a teaser, the second goes a step further and reveals some of the new software features that can be found within the next overlay from LG, including two very interesting related to the camera. Named "Quick Shot", the first will take the picture on the fly with a simple double-tap on one of the buttons on the unit back. "Gesture Interval Shot" will, in turn, trigger the front camera with a simple hand gesture to take several selfies a result, as in a photo booth.

More oriented to telephony "Ringtone ID" will allow you to assign different ringtones to your favorite contacts so you know who is calling when you have your hands full and you can not take your phone Finally, "Quick Memo + "will allow you to display on the phone display only the information you need when you visit a web page. More details in the video below.

A fingerprint reader and mobile payments: LG G4

At the beginning, it was learned that the Korean company plans to launch its first mobile payment service. A few days later, the Korea Herald issued the possibility that the LG G4 team a fingerprint reader while giving more details on this subject. You could read such that the sensor would be placed at the back of the device within the power button.

If for now, all that is quite difficult to verify, given that Samsung took the presentation of Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge to inaugurate a similar service from Samsung Pay name that comes to echo Apple Pay, it would not really surprising.

Availability and LG G4 prices

The official presentation of LG G4 will be held on April 28, during a special event that will take place simultaneously in the cities of New York, London, Paris, Seoul, Singapore and Istanbul. Its release date is scheduled for late May in Korea, however, we do not yet have any information about Europe and other markets. Moreover, Korean users who pre-ordered the device will receive one year of free screen replacement in case of breakage and an SD card 64GB offered.

Regarding the price, the news is not good. In anticipation of its release, the unit starts to appear in the online shops of Korean operators and would be expected at a rate equivalent to the sum of 825 dollars or 767 euros. It would therefore be more expensive than the Galaxy S6 sold 795 dollars in the Korean market. Asked about the issue, an official of LG said the price of 825 dollars was not set in stone but remain in the same range.

Meanwhile, the device has appeared on the websites of two German dealers. Thus, in terms of Europe, the price would be:

    679-689 euros for plastic Version
    729-739 euros for the leather version

Do you think that the proposal of the Korean LG with its G4 if these rumors prove correct, can attract users? Because competitors are larger and especially Chinese brands like Xiaomi exploding all the scores in Asia and begin to move abroad. Eventually, LG hopes to sell no less than 10 million units of its next high-end phone throughout the year.
