2016 was the year of flagships with two most prominent ones - the iPhone 7 and the Google Pixel.
Honor's flagship was one of the best phones we reviewed with its superior build quality, dual camera setup, coupled to a 4GB RAM and 1.8GHz Kirin 950 processor.
This was one of the underdogs in the flagship segment but won us over with its 4GB RAM and a Snapdragon 821 processor which has the likes of Google Pixel, Mi Mix, and OnePlus 3T.
One of the first modular phone, the LG G5 still has minor chinks in its design which we hope will be removed in its successor.
The Moto Z managed to capture the attention of the people mainly because of it mods which it offers. There is a battery mod, a camera mod, and a JBL speaker mod.
OnePlus stomped on the flagship segment with its OnePlus 3 and Snapdragon 820. The the chinese manufacturer stomped on its OpnePlus 3 for the 3T which had a bigger battery and Snapdragon 821.
Google's first foray into the hardware-ish world of smartphones and it was already at the top. The build quality, feel, and the processor (Snapdragon 821) ensured its position as a flagship.
One of the first phones to actually have a bezel-less display (around 91% screen to body ratio), captured the eyes of numerous gadget geeks across the globe. Specs are standard with 6GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 821 processor.
Asus extended its Zenfone family with a flagship and called it the Zenfone Deluxe. The device has a Snapdragon 820/821 with a 4/6GB of RAM.
And now comes the king of flagships. The entire smartphone space waited with bated breath as Apple took the covers off its latest iPhone (7/7 Plus) and showed the world what a flagship is.
