NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- We've seen some great new smartphones hit the stores in the past few months. New and updated designs from Samsung (SSNLF) , LG, HTC, Asus and even BlackBerry (BBRY) are meant to challenge Apple (AAPL) and its iPhone 6 supremacy.
There are some terrific devices out there vying for your attention. They're different in their features, operating systems and the way they handle information, but you could be happy to varying degrees with any of them.
We've chosen what we think are the 10 best smartphones you can buy at this point in 2015.
Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus
It took a while for Apple to release larger-screen iPhones, but it was definitely worth the wait.
The iPhone 6 (4.7-inch screen) and the phablet-sized iPhone 6 Plus (5.5-inch display) were instant worldwide successes, and their sales show no signs of slowing. That probably won't change until Apple announces a new iPhone, rumored to be unveiled later this year.
The current phones offer a near-perfect combination of style and performance that few, if any, competing products can match.
Apple's phones are designed to be the most synergistic with Apple computers and tablets, so fans of the Cupertino, Calif.-based company's products will be assured the best iPhone experience.
And, of course, if you are a fan of the new Apple Watch, connecting it to a modern iPhone is a no-brainer.
