Have you ever been sitting at home on the couch and silently pondered to yourself, ‘if this smartphone were a celebrity, which celebrity would it be?’ Of course you have - it’s one of the universe’s greatest mysteries.
Well, fear not, fellow smartphone-lover. We’ve given this topic a lot of thought, and this is what we’ve come up with.
Nexus 6 - Arnold Schwarzenegger
If you’re looking for the Schwarzenegger of smartphones, look no further than the Motorola Nexus 6. For starters, it’s huge – the Quad HD screen measures 6-inches – plenty of space for films and games. There’s also 3GB RAM and a 2.7GHz quad-core processor packed in, which means there’s no a shortage of raw power.
Arnie famously said in 1984’s The Terminator, “I’ll be back”, and who’s to say he wasn’t talking about returning in the form of a 2014 powerhouse smartphone? Okay, probably a lot of people – but play along.
BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9982 – Olivia Wilde
The Porsche Design P’9982 by BlackBerry is without doubt the most luxurious and glamorous smartphone we sell, and who more fitting to pair it with than the elegant Olivia Wilde?
It’s styled by Porsche Design but production has been overseen by our friends at BlackBerry. If it’s a head-turner you’re looking for, you’ve just found it. The phone features a very manageable 4.2-inch HD display, with the rear cover hand-wrapped in the finest Italian leather and glass fibre weave. Very posh.
Sony Xperia Z3+ - Rebecca Adlington, OBE
Our very own Becky Adlington is Britian's most decorated female Olympian to date. As a gold medal-winning swimmer, we can safely assume she spends a lot of time in the pool, and wouldn’t you know it, we’ve got the perfect phone.
The Sony Xperia Z3+ is the UK’s most waterproof smartphone, and if Becky isn’t a fan, then we’ll be damned. Certified as IP68, it’s good in the water for up to 30 minutes at a depth of 1.5m.
HTC One M9 - Lemmy, Motörhead
Motörhead t-shirts have read “Louder than everything else” for years, and although the HTC’s One M9’s BoomSound™ speakers might not quite overpower Lemmy’s thundering bass guitar, he might at least hear the phone ring. You can’t tell us decades of being in one of the world’s loudest bands hasn’t had some kind of repercussion on his hearing.
LG G Flex 2 – Louis Smith
It’s right back to Team GB with Louis Smith and the LG G Flex 2. We can’t say for sure if Louis has self-healing capabilities like Wolverine (and the G Flex 2), but he’s certainly a strong and flexible chap - the perfect match for this bendy smartphone.
Unlike Smith, the G Flex 2 features a 5.5-inch Full HD display and a 13MP camera with laser focus. Check it out here
