Android has come a long way since the beginning. It is considered to be one of the best operating systems available for mobile devices. There is so much you can do and so much that Android is capable of that it’s no wonder it is a favorite among a large number of people. The new Android devices coming out offer more and more options and exciting new innovations. Let’s compare a few to find out what is available and what device suits users best.
Samsung Galaxy S6
Samsung has always been in competition with the iPhone and that competition is even more evident in the new Galaxy S6 model. Having moved away from the plastic casing and adopted a device made from metal, the S6 does look a lot like the iPhone, however it does give it a higher end feel. It is still available in the signature white color, but now it is also available in a variety of other colors including a metallic finish. The Galaxy S6 boasts the highest quality picture and best screen on the market. The screen is 5.1 inches large and comes packed with the most pixels on the market at 1440 x 2560 and a PPI of 557, which makes the S6 the sharpest image available.
The LG G4 has tough competition with Samsungs new Galaxy S6, but it has done well to offer a comparable product. The best thing the G4 has going for it is the battery, having the longest lifespan of anything else on the market. That paired with other great features such as the top flight camera and improvements to their screen makes the G4 a contender in the smartphone race. As far as the look goes, while others are focusing on futuristic metal looks the G4 has gone with the luxurious look and feel of a leather look back, making it stand out among the competition. The screen is a large 5.5 inches, which makes it great for viewing video, especially with its 538 PPI and LG has really put a lot of work into the color display to give a more natural look to the images.
HTC One M9
Since its start, HTC has consistently produced a great product, and they are absolutely following suit with the HTC One M9. Having made improvements to their screen image and battery life the M9 is about as close to a perfect device as you get. The sleek design is one if the best features of the M9. The company calls it “jewellery grade” because of the hand crafting and attention to detail, and it is definitely a fitting description. The screen is a 5 inch 1080p SuperLCD gorilla glass display, which doesn’t offer the sharpness of the QHD but does have the benefit of saving some battery life. It does have great color quality and is responsive to touch.
Google Nexus 6
The Nexus 6 is in a class of its own. It’s large 6 inch screen and fast processors make this device a favorite among phablet users. It’s design is comfortable in your hands and the sleek metal frame and smooth plastic backing make it a nice looking device that fits well in your hands. Although there is nothing notable about the screen, the Nexus does come with a great, 13 megapixel camera with a Sony IMX214 CMOS sensor and a wider f/2.0 aperture giving it crisp clear imaging.
Sony Xperia Z5
Sony has had some bad luck marketing its mobile phones. While the Xperia Z5 is not a bad device, it doesn’t get the same recognition as others on the market. However, the Xperia Z5 does offer some great features that in their latest model. The design of this phone feels powerful and sturdy while the 5. Inch screen offers a full HD LCD display. The front speakers offer an outstanding sound quality when viewing video without earphones and offset the size of the display a little. The best feature of the Xperia Z5 has got to be the camera though. The 23MP sensor allows you to take crisp, clear images even at 5x zoom, and with the fastest auto focus on the market at 0.03 seconds you can be sure that no matter how fast you are snapping, you will always end up with a beautifully focused image.
