  • 3Google Nexus 6 by Motorola

    Google Nexus 6 by Motorola

    The Google Nexus 6 stands for the best Android experience on a smartphone. And while the Nexus 6 is a beast of a phone (literally), with a massive 6-inch screen. If you are fine with a large & heavy device, the benefits of the Nexus 6 in terms of performance, Android updates, a stellar camera with optical image stabilization and excellent battery life are impossible to ignore. We suggest you get your hands on the Nexus 6 to experience the size and overall dimensions before taking s decision. If you can manage its weight and size, the Nexus 6 is the best Android phone to buy and a very valid alternative to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 if the stylus input isn't something that you find useful.

  • 8Sony Xperia Z3 Compact

    Sony Xperia Z3 Compact

    The Sony Xperia Z3 compact is the mini version of the Sony Xperia Z3 with the same core hardware as the Z3 packed in a smaller body. The Xperia Z3 has a smaller- 4.6" screen instead of the 5.2" screen on the Xperia Z3. The smaller screen and reduced bezels allow the Z3 compact to be a whole lot manageable in terms of one-handed operation.

  • 9HTC One E8

    HTC One E8

    The HTC One E8 is a slightly more affordable version of the HTC One M8. The E8 offers a slim poly carbonate shell instead of the metal body in the One M8. Another area where the E8 is different is the imaging engine, the E8 has a single 13MP camera instead of the dual 4MP ultra-pixel cameras found in the HTC One M8. We found the HTC One E8 one heck of a bargain in terms of retaining the core performance of the HTC One M8 while costing 8-10K lesser. Also, the poly-carbonate body on the HTC One E8 actually feels as premium as the HTC One M8 in terms of finish and build, just that it ain't metal!
