The 10 best phablets in the world Today!

Post by Abdulla on 12th April 2015, 10:02 pm

Our hands might not be getting any bigger but our phones certainly are. As flagships like the LG G3 and OnePlus One creep up to 5.5 inches phablets are starting to resemble small tablets, arguably filling the roles of both a smartphone and a slate.
If you think that one device is better than two, or just have really big hands, then there is a growing selection of phones to suit and these are the ten best.

10. Samsung Galaxy Note 2

While the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is now two generations old it's still worth considering. At 5.5 inches it's a little smaller than the Note 3, in fact with the likes of the LG G3 now rocking 5.5-inch displays it's debatable whether this can even still be considered a phablet, but it was certainly thought of as one when it launched in late 2012.

Its screen is only 720p and its quad-core 1.6GHz processor and 2GB of RAM look more upper mid-range than high end, but performance is still impressive while the Super AMOLED display produces vibrant colours.

It also has great battery life, just like the Note 3 and Note 4, and with a microSD card slot and 4G support it's well equipped. More importantly though, while the Note 4 retails for around £450 and even the Note 3 is roughly £385, the Galaxy Note 2 can now be had for just £300, making it a comparative bargain.

9. Oppo N1

While most of the other phablets in this list are great, they're also all big names. If you want something that no-one else has and a little different consider the Oppo N1.

It ticks all the boxes we'd expect from a high-end phablet, with a 1.7GHz quad-core processor (albeit a Snapdragon 600 one), 2GB of RAM and a 5.9-inch 1080p screen. Plus it has great battery life, so you can comfortably use it as both a communications device and a portable media player without fear of it dying.

There's also the fact that its 13MP camera swivels, so you can use it for selfies as well as normal shots and the results are impressive. The N1 also officially supports CyanogenMod, so you can install a full featured version of the Android-based OS with ease and without voiding your warranty.

8. Sony Xperia Z Ultra

At 6.4 inches the Z Ultra is monstrous in size and that's a blessing and a curse. It's a true tablet replacement, as it's not all that much smaller than a 7-inch slate, but that of course makes it wildly impractical as a phone.

Still, if you really want an all-in-one device this will do it and size aside there's a lot going for it. The Xperia Z Ultra has a premium build with a glass back and it's super slim at just 6.5mm thick, so it looks good, especially compared to most other phablets.
It's water and dust resistant, has a powerful 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and its screen makes it a great portable movie player too. You're going to be giving the battery a workout, so it's a good thing that its 3050mAh juice pack is up to the challenge.

7. Nokia Lumia 1520

If you want a Windows Phone phablet your options are very limited, so it's a good thing that Nokia delivered the Nokia Lumia 1520.
Its 6.0-inch 1080p IPS LCD display it's a beast for media consumption, while a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM ensure slick performance. While it's made of plastic it feels very solidly built and comes in at a slim 8.7mm thick, giving it an attractive, premium look and feel.

In typical Nokia fashion it also has an impressive 20MP camera and it's been upgraded to Windows Phone 8.1. Plus a Windows 10 Mobile update is promised when available, which should keep it feeling fresh and up to date for a long time yet.

6. Huawei Ascend Mate 7

Along with Oppo, Huawei is another relatively unknown name that's creeped into the list, but the Ascend Mate 7 is worthy of attention.
With a big 6.0-inch 1080p screen, an attractive aluminium casing, good battery life, an octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM and even a fingerprint scanner there's a lot to like here. A 13MP snapper and a microSD card slot don't hurt either.

The Huawei Ascend Mate 7 isn't quite the most powerful phone around (though it's not far off) and there are handsets with sharper screens, but it doesn't feel lacking, so if you don't mind skipping past the brand names you can save yourself some money and still get a top flight phablet experience by picking up one of these.

5. Samsung Galaxy Note 3

The faux-leather rear of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is divisive at best, but with a powerful 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and 3GB of RAM it's a high performing handset, while its 5.7-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display is sharp and impressive.
It's also on the small side, at least as far as phablets go, which makes it easier to hold than some competing devices, while the inclusion of a stylus makes it a joy to use.

Add in an impressive battery life and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 really is a phone that has it all. Great as a phone, even better for media and productivity, high powered and it keeps on going all day.

4. Samsung Galaxy Note Edge

With its curved screen it would be easy to write the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge off as a gimmick, but that would be a mistake. While the edge is hardly an essential feature it does add some handy skills to the phone, such as the ability to exile video controls to the edge so they're always visible without obstructing the display.

Those minor features aside the Galaxy Note Edge is also almost as impressive a handset as the Note 4, with heaps of power, a super-sharp QHD screen and an S Pen stylus, so you can write by hand and even sketch on your phone.
A slightly smaller battery and marginally worse performance are the only things holding it back from the Galaxy Note 4 and the number one spot.

3. Google Nexus 6

The Nexus 6 is Google's first phablet and it's a real winner, with an enormous 5.96-inch QHD screen, a 2.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor and 3GB of RAM. Of course it also benefits from being a stock Android device and first in line for new OS updates and even its camera- traditionally a weak point on Nexus devices, is capable of taking some pretty stunning snaps.
Add to that extra features like Qi and turbo charging and it's clear that this is a real flagship device with no cut corners. If there's a downside to all this it's that it's not the budget bargain that many Nexus phones are, but it's hard to argue that it's not worth every penny.

2. iPhone 6 Plus

Can a phone with a 5.5-inch screen really be considered a phablet? Maybe not in Android land, but for Apple this is big, really big.
The iPhone 6 Plus has a sharp 1080 x 1920 display and specs that punch well above their weight, with its optical image stabilisation-equipped 8MP snapper capable of some of the best photos you can take on a smartphone and its dual-core processor somehow delivering impossibly slick performance.
Being an Apple device it also has a sumptuous design and build, with a slim metal shell leaving it as the best looking phablet on the planet. While its Touch ID fingerprint scanner is a nice bonus and for the time being it's the only iOS phablet available.

1. Samsung Galaxy Note 4

Samsung was one of the first companies to jump on the phablet train and its most recent one, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, is not only one of Samsung's best phones but the best phablet money can buy.
Its super sharp, bright and vibrant but still fairly pocketable 5.7-inch 1440 x 2560 Super AMOLED display is perhaps the star of the show. Or maybe that honour should go to its ridiculously slick performance, supported by a 2.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor and 3GB of RAM. Then again its 16MP camera complete with optical image stabilisation is also highly impressive.
We haven't even touched on its metal frame or its innovative and useful S Pen, let alone its fingerprint scanner, but it should be clear by now that we're huge fans of Samsung's latest phablet. It's big (but not too big), powerful, stylish and feature packed. If you've got the money and want a big-screen phone this is unquestionably the one to go for.
