Samsung Galaxy Note 4

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has many impressive features, the huge display is crystal clear, it has a fantastic camera and it has a brilliant battery life. However, it does come at a cost, this mobile device is not cheap and the S Pen feature still fails to add much added value.

Sony Xperia Z3 

There's no doubt, the Sony Xperia Z3 is definitely an improvement compared to the already impressive predecessor Sony Xperia Z2. However, despite its slick display, massive battery life and smart looking design, it still has many worrying issues, mainly involving the software and overheating of the phone.

Motorola Nexus 6 

The Motorola Nexus 6 is massive, in fact, it's bigger than both the iPhone 6 Plus and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. The phone has received mixed feedback with many complaining about the phone being too big, making it difficult to use. However, many have stated it is definitely the best looking Motorola Nexus phone to date and the screen quality is top class. This does come at a price, as it is considerably more expensive than the previous model the Google Nexus 5.
