We remember the most iconic phones of the decade

Like any list, it can generate controversy, have unforgivable absences and not be complete. In one more exercise to try to summarize what happened in the last 10 years in terms of mobile phone, we present some of what we considered were the most iconic phones of the decade that has already ended.

Highlights the births of series or families now relevant, such as Galaxy S, Galaxy Note, Moto Z, Google Pixel and LG G. Almost nothing.

Google Nexus (from 2010 to 2015)

Before Google decided to go on its own in the world of mobile phones with their own cell phones, from the beginning of the decade, he developed a whole family of smartphones along with other manufacturers, such as LG, HTC, Motorola and Huawei. The great promise with these was to have a "clean" device in terms of software and to receive Android updates first.

It could be said that this series was important because it laid the foundations for Google to develop its Pixel family, with all that that implied, such as not having the global reach that other companies gave it.

Galaxy Note (2011)

The first Galaxy Note enters this list because I opened a new category, the phablets, one to which few assured him success, since it was said that users were not going to acquire wide-screen cell phones. Later and a bit with Apple's resistance, mobile phones of more than 5 inches became common, leaving Samsung silent.

It cannot be mentioned that the category has not been free of controversy, especially with the Galaxy Note 7, which had to be removed from the market in 2016 due to problems with its battery (few days after its launch, users reported that the smartphones they caught fire).

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play (2011)

What kind of hybrid was this? The truth is that this boldness of Sony Ericsson did nothing but attract the attention of users in a good way and place the phone among the best of 2011, although it was a team more aimed at gamers.

Enter its features, stood out for its 4-inch screen, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, good games catalog, some of them exclusive, the approval of PlayStation and, best of all, a sliding section with everything you need to play . It was a cell phone that made more than one dream at that time.

LG G (since 2012)

The LG G series can be considered as a family in which the brand has dared to experience, as shown by the LG G5 (2016) and the LG G Flex (2013). The first came with the novelty of the modules, while the other had a curved screen that promises another level of immersion.

About to finish the second decade of the century, it can be said that the company did not find that best seller that would secure a place among the greats. However, it cannot be denied that this series has brought to the table good quality cameras, advanced processing and even a double screen for a cell phone, the LG G8x ThinQ (2019).

Galaxy S6 (2015)

The Galaxy S have positioned themselves, year after year, in the list of the best phones and have also allowed Samsung to position itself as a market leader. In addition, this series will be 10 years of having been launched in 2020, so a phone with notable changes or that consolidates the company's technological innovation is expected, mainly with what has to do with the screen and optics.

The Galaxy S6 stands out on this list because it gave a clearer direction to the South Korean firm from where to go. The changes were evident in terms of design, with a metal body, instead of plastic, and a glass back to be compatible with wireless charging, in addition to its screen (curved in the case of the Galaxy S6 Edge) and Cmara received the best praise from critics. Of course, I regret that it has lost water resistance and the option to expand its storage.

Google Pixel (2016)

It was 2016, when he saw more interesting phone parading, such as the Moto Z, Huawei Mate 9, iPhone 7 and HTC 10, however, the first Google Pixel made its way among everyone as the promise that he could face the greats, mainly to Apple and Samsung.
