There’s debate about this device’s overall quality and value. But I don’t think there’s any arguing the device’s top quality design. Compared to some of the most well-known and expensive handsets on the market, this phone is more than capable of standing on its design merits alone. The fact that (I think) it’s a worthy device is a big bonus, especially since we didn’t really expect much to begin with.
That’s not to say the phone didn’t suffer from some big flaws; some would say they’re fatal. I won’t go into detail here, but suffice to say this device had the potential to be among the very, very best, especially for the price, but it had to compromise a lot in order to fit into a certain criteria. You win some, you lose some.
At this point in the game, however, it’s becoming rare to find a “bad” phone. Sure, you’ll find a device that might compromise a removable back or expandable storage in favor of design. But, by and large, the large majority of phones in 2015 were good; technology has, to the benefit of consumers, advanced so much over the past few years that making a good phone is seemingly much easier nowadays.
I say that like making a phone is easy; obviously much more goes into the process. I suppose that’s how fortunate we are, when we can count on a device to (mostly) fulfill our needs without having even used it first. That’s a discussion for another day. Peep the pictures below and hit me with your best guesses.
Last week’s Guess the Phone was the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus.
