Design of a smartpone is one of its key features that cannot simply be ignored. Smartphone vendors focus a lot on design elements, in order to give their device an edge over rivals.
This week, Huawei launched the Honor 7i with unique design features, and a week back Samsung announced the new generation Galaxy Note and S6 Edge smartphones that don a very premium look to charm potential consumers. These are not all, as there have been quite a handful of smartphones launched in 2015 that got some extra ratings mainly due to their design elements.
If you too are looking for a smartphone that boasts good looks with a unique design element, check out our list of seven nicely done smartphones launched this year:
Huawei Honor 7i
Huawei launched the Honor 7i with an exciting new design that makes it look different from the crowd. It features a flip-out rear camera that goes up to 180 degree to double up as a selfie shooter. It is not that we have not seen swivel cameras earlier, but this still adds to the looks of the phone. Furthermore, the device comes with a fingerprint sensor that is placed on the right side of the device, which is quite unusual. The sensor can be unlocked with wet fingers and be used as camera shutter button.
