2015 is over and done but there are still some important lists to be made - such as ranking the best smartphones of the year.
AnTuTu.com has performed its definitive ranking of the major handsets of 2015, based on a number of factors including their raw speed and specs - GPU, CPU, RAM, etc - as well as taking into account the rather more subjective user experience. They use their own software to get these figures and, well, the stats speak for themselves.
It seems the Apple iPhone 6s Plus with its A9 chip basically obliterates the competition. It's thousands of points ahead of its nearest rival the Huawei Mate 8 and easily outpaces even powerhouses like the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. It's interesting to see the OnePlus 2 in this pack at all, considering it's a lower cost handset and one which was widely advertised as a flagship killer. That's not quite true but it can definitely compete with the top of the pack.
Of course, there are many different reasons why people choose the phones they do and it has to be said that the vast majority of these handsets run on the Android operating system so if you're not prepared to move to iOS then the very top of the list will be out of bounds.
