With hundreds of smartphones running Android right now (at least), picking a top 10 was never going to be easy. But you won’t believe the devices that didn’t make the cut – the latest Nexus 5X, the HTC One (M9), to name but two. Also not here are announced devices that we haven’t played with yet – the extremely interesting Moto X Force, the LG V10 and the OnePlus X might otherwise all be contenders. Also absent from the top 10 are any of the multitude of Chinese designs (including Xiaomi) flooding the East and sub-continent – most simply never appear in Europe and the West in any quantity – and we don’t apologise for only picking smartphones that we can personally vouch for in one way or another.

Earlier this month, Xposed framework — one of the best mods to be available for Android from the third party development community — was made available for Samsung devices running Lollipop.

Almost all Android devices released this year support Qualcomm’s Quick Charge technology and they all claim that they are the fastest charging smartphone in the market. But which smartphone charges the fastest?
True to its words, Samsung has started rolling out a software update for the Galaxy S6 edge in its home market, South Korea, which enables support for Samsung Pay and enhances the overall user interface.
Xposed framework is easily one of the most popular mods among advanced users and developers in the Android community. However, despite its popularity, the framework has been incompatible with almost all the major flagship handsets released this year, because they all feature a 64-bit processor.
T-Mobile today lowered the prices of Samsung’s 2015 flagship handset — the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge — by up to $200. The move from the carrier comes less than a week after Samsung announced that it will be adjusting the prices of its flagship handset to boost sales and to counter the increased competition.
