Coolest Smartphones

This year has been a tough one for the smartphone market, as even the top vendors like Apple and Samsung face struggles due to weakening demand.

Amid these troubles, smartphone vendors are racing to release the next game-changing feature that will boost sales, as the popularity of Siri or large-screened designs did.
