'The LG G4 is the follow-up to 2014’s TrustedReviews Phone of the Year, the LG G3 and as such has a great deal to live up to.'
'The LG G4 isn’t just a decent update to an already very good phone, it is now vastly improved with vastly superior imaging capabilities, improved battery performance and a beautifully refined display, which illustrates profoundly just why QHD, power hog that it is, is very much here to stay in flagship Android handsets. '
'From the pared-down user interface to the tight integration with Google to the strong camera performance, the G4 is a great phone... not to mention a very logical step forward from last year's G3. '
'The LG G4 improves on the three best features of its predecessor: design, screen, the camera - and does so decisively.'
'The M9 is an exceptional phone, but it's just not the best option out there. '
'However, this is still one of the best phones you can get and it just goes to show how far HTC has come in the last few years that we hold its products to such lofty standards. '
'All in all the HTC One M9 is a very desirable smartphone when held in the hand – easily one of the most desirable. '
'the M9 looks JUST like the M8, which is odd because anybody that’s being paying attention to HTC’s fortunes over the past couple of years knows it needs something BIG like the M7, not more incrementalism. .'
'The Galaxy S5 was already great, but the Note 4 finds a way to push things even further.'
'It's powerful, the screen is gorgeous, there's a great camera and the battery life is massive.'
'Samsung can make truly great, uncompromisingly fantastic phones.'
'The earpiece gets loud enough to hear over noisy streets, with good depth and natural tones, even at maximum volume. '
'polished overall experience'
'It’s easily the most impressive phone available under $300, and it doesn’t force you to make the compromises that are commonly required by cheap phones. '
'Mesmerizing IPS-based display'
'While the software and audio hardware are great, the Idol 3 is not a smartphone you’ll pick for its visual design. '
'The G Flex 2 is a refreshing approach to smartphone design, but it doesn't mask a phone that's behind the smartphone curve.'
'One thing is clear though: it's distinct, it's unique, it's something a little different - so why not go for a curved model'.'
'LG made sure the G Flex2 is the sort of phone that turns heads, but the company also seemed content to play it safe with the software.'
'The 720p screen was no match for its competition, the phone was too unwieldy, and it had an exorbitant price tag. '
'It’s disappointing that Sony hasn’t matched the Z3’s Full HD display, but this is still good for a phone this size, and it matches what the competition currently offers.'
'The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact packs a larger screen than its predecessor in the same size body, it has tonnes of power, it's completely waterproof allowing for underwater photography and it has a good camera.'
'fairly sharp picture'
'Very heavy Android skin.'
'In a market full of unwieldy phones, it is refreshingly good to come across a mobile that's actually handy.'
' The Xiaomi Mi 4i packs some fairly impressive hardware, including a 5-inch full-HD display, a 13-megapixel rear camera and a solid compact build while still sticking very close to the lower end of the cost spectrum. '
'Sound quality is the most responsive in the mid-range frequency.'
'The Honor 6 Plus is fairly slim at 7.5mm but the weight of 165g is above average.'
'Looking at the competition, the Honor 6 Plus' screen is not that bright.'
'And true to the Honor brand's affordable promise, the 6 Plus comes with a low price. '
'The display is bright and blacks are impressive.'
