Last week we asked the question: "Which 2015 Android phone has the best design?" You casted hundreds of votes and now we have the results. While they came as something of a surprise to us here at AndroidPIT, perhaps you won’t find them so shocking.

From our list of 11 phones, there were two frontrunners. The Nexus 6P just missed out on the top spot. It arrived only a short time ago and has proven popular among critics. We called it "the ultimate smartphone" and praised many aspects of it in our Nexus 6P review, but we expected the design, particularly that black visor on the back, to divide people. As it turns out, it has one of the most popular looks of the year.

The phone that you said has the best design of 2015 was the Galaxy S6 Edge, which claimed almost a quarter of the votes.

This distinctive device was something of a gamble for Samsung – it was the first Galaxy S series phone to feature a dual-edged display. Few could argue that it wasn't a big improvement on the Galaxy S5 in terms of appearance. The curved screen, super slim body, glass rear and aluminum frame make this one beautiful flagship.

It's not just a pretty face, however – the Galaxy S6 Edge also performs brilliantly. Don't forget to read our full Galaxy S6 Edge review to find out why we gave it five stars.

Do you agree with the results? Do you think another smartphone has a better design? Let us know in the comments.

    Oh please, Galaxy S6 does not have the best design, the phone has the same boring front face like all Samsung phones have had, it might be the slimmest con that list at 6.8 mm which is cool but the OnePlus X and the 6p has the better design. Samsung is getting old people.

    Did the latest s5 upgrade and it drains my battery and i am now struggling with signal issues. It's slow and really want this fixed. It was the 5.0 .

      Did you factory reset after the update? If not you should do it straight away. This will clear any old kitkat files and will mean that you have to re download your apps to the latest version. This should clear most of the problems.

      Though it may be that the 5.1 update will be needed.
