Welcome to another round of Mobile Madness 2015 where we allow our readers to determine the “best smartphone” in this tournament style contest. Thus far we’ve run nine rounds of the tournament and we’ve already lost some heavy hitters. Yesterday saw the Samsung Galaxy S6 go up against the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge.
