'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. '
'It looks great, has class-leading battery life and we love its light, bloatware-free approach to Android.'
'And with the new Moto E, Motorola has crafted one of the most compelling budget smartphones yet. '
'The new Motorola Moto E is proof that a cheap phone can be good, too; you're getting reasonable performance, a sharp display and LTE connectivity for $150, unlocked.'
'competent, affordable smartphone'
'Updated with Motorola’s newest Mobile Computing System, which is comprised out of a natural language processor, contextual computing chip, and a quad-core 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC coupled with 2GB of RAM, we’re seriously impressed by the Moto X’s super snappy responsiveness. '
'this smartphone doesn’t need flashy casing to prove outstanding.'
'If you've made it this far, you've already discovered that the Moto X compares pretty favorably to premium phones like the One M8 and the Galaxy S5. '
'In my mind, it's the best tablet when you want one and a phone when you need one, and that's why it's our Editors' Choice for unlocked handsets. .'
'great flagship phone'
'gorgeous, monstrous, well-built phone'
'The combination of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 SoC, 3GB or RAM, and a 6" QHD display should please even the pickiest Android user, as will the front-facing stereo speakers. '
'This phone’s features are deep and robust.'
'The phone that never dies.'
'The result is actually good, as it emits a very balanced tone with decent bass and treble – and it doesn’t strain at the loudest volume either! '
'Speedy Snapdragon 805 SoC.'
'Latest version of Windows Phone.'
'The Windows Phone OS has a smaller app market, the handset's battery is nonremovable, and like the Android M8s before it, photos aren't as sharp as those from its competitors.'
'Premium construction that looks very different from other Windows Phones.'
'The G3's flagship feature is its 5.5-inch, 2,560-by-1,440 screen—the highest resolution you'll see anywhere. '
'The slim screen bezels and tapered edge design also help the LG G3 feel reasonably trim when held. '
'It's unsurprising that performance is smooth and nippy the vast majority of the time.'
