Phones with superpowers

Celebrating the best unique mobile talents

Getting a new phone is one thing, but knowing it can do something that no other phone can do is the icing on the cake. Maybe you’re looking for something that will survive a splash (check out Sony’s Xperia range) or something with a physical keyboard (BlackBerry has you covered on that front).

But for something extra special – check this lot out…

Moto X Force

Superpower – shatterproof screen

The amazing X Force boasts what Motorola is calling the ShatterShield - the world’s first shatterproof display. It basically does what it says on the tin and comes with a four-year warranty, so you know Motorola’s pretty confident.

It’s made up of multiple layers of crystal clear plastic, on top of a rigid aluminium core with a flexible AMOLED display sandwiched in the middle. And, if you want the nitty gritty, it’s all right here.

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+

Superpower – superfast wireless charging

If you’ve got a need for speed, and want to charge in style, the Galaxy S6 edge+ is for you. Not only is it one of the best-looking smartphones on the market at the moment, but it works with the fastest wireless charger, too.

Simply place it on top of its wireless charging pad, and you’re set. No need for leads or fiddly inputs, and it’ll go from flat to full in no time.

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium

Superpower – sharpest smartphone display

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium is everything the Xperia Z5 is and more. The world’s first 4K smartphone display is a big title, and the awesome detail is undeniable. If you’re really into your movies and photography it’s well worth a look - putting all other mobile screens to shame.

If that’s not enough there’s also a 23MP camera, a fingerprint scanner, inbuilt fast charging and a clean-cut, modern design.

Microsoft Lumia 950

Superpower – can transform into desktop computer

Yes, you read that right. With a little help from a Display Dock, the new Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950 XL can become full-scale Windows 10 computers.

Simply plug it into any screen’s HDMI port, and you’ll be able to enjoy Continuum – Microsoft’s name for the scaled up experience. Use the Lumia 950 to type, navigate and power all the usual Windows software like Office, Skype and Cortana.

Nokia 105

Superpower – longest-lasting battery

Okay, this one’s a bit of a curveball, but if you’re heading into the wilderness for a few days, and need something that will let you call and text home - listen up.

We know the Nokia 105 isn’t likely to win any beauty contests, but it has an amazing battery life. 12.5-hours of talk time, and a colossal 35-days on standby – imagine not having to charge your phone for over a month!

It’s got FM radio, too, if that does it for you…
