Upcoming or recent phones 2015:

LG V10

Kicking off a flagship family outside of LG's G-series, the 5.7-inch QHD V10 introduces a few innovative technologies. One being its Second Screen feature (2.1-inch IPS Quantum 160 x 1040/513ppi), another being 5-megapixel dual selfie cameras, supporting shots of up to 120 degrees without any tweaks or accessories.

LG also satisfies us with the V10's array of premium-class specs, which include a Snapdragon 808 hexa-core CPU, a 4GB LPDDR3 RAM, and a 64GB memory expandable by up to 2TB. LG's Manual Video Mode also makes its debut alongside a fingerprint detector, a Hi-Fi DAC, and a 3-microphone system. A 16-megapixel f/1.8 4K camera tops off its offering, while a shock-proof Dura Guard frame houses its entire profile.

LG Nexus 5X

Despite being less-advanced than Huawei's Nexus 6P, the 5.2-inch Full HD (Super AMOLED) Nexus 5X does not hurt LG that much, as it still brings the Marshmallow OS (Android 6.0) powered by a hexa-core 1.8GHz processor, a 2GB RAM, and Adreno 418 graphics. Many key specs of the other model, including a Type-C USB port, a fingerprint detector, and LTE Cat 6 connectivity, are also offered by the 5X.

The cameras are roughly the same as well, with the 5X's 12.3-megapixel rear cam (1.55um) sitting on the IR laser autofocus technology and a dual LED flash, while the 5-megapixel selfie cam rocks an f/2.0 aperture with a 1.4um pixel size. Topping off this LG-made Nexus is a choice between Carbon, Quartz, or Ice (color options).

Gionee Marathon M5

Possibly running as far as any other Android on the market (as of its release), the 5.5-inch Super AMOLED Gionee Marathon M5 features a whopping 6020mAh battery capacity, which is accompanied by dual charging chips -- mainly for less charging heat. This high-class powerbrick gives life to a 13-megapixel PDAF camera, a 1.3GHz quad-core CPU, and a 4G LTE network adapter. Some other specs include a 5-megapixel frontal camera, a 16GB internal memory (up to 128GB expansion support), and a 2GB RAM.

HTC Butterfly 3

Fluttering its way into the flagship Android garden is HTC's 2015 Butterfly 3 (more popularly known as the J Butterfly in Japan), a 5.2-inch QHD smartphone that features a Duo Camera setup, which basically means that it has a secondary sensor (largely for depth-of-field information) backing its 20.2-megapixel 4K-video main camera. In addition to that, it sports a 13-megapixel f/2.0 Full HD front-facing camera.

Hardware-wise, it is rigged with a 2GHz + 1.5GHz octa-core processor, a 3GB RAM, and a 2700mAh battery. It also supports 2TB's worth of extra space for its 32GB native storage. Lastly, HTC's BoomSound technology merges with Dolby to deliver audio through its dual frontal speakers, while an IP67 casing ties all its specs together.

Asus Zenfone Zoom ZX551ML

The 5.5-inch Full HD Gorilla Glass 4 Zenfone Zoom ZX551ML zooms into a high-end seat with a 10-element-lens 13-megapixel camera capable of 3x optical zooming (12x total zoom), with high-end perks like laser autofous and a dual real tone flash as well. Hardware-wise, it rocks an Intel Atom quad-core 64-bit processor, a 4GB DDR3 RAM, and a 3000mAh battery with the ASUS BoostMaster charging technology. Additionally, it promises up to 250Mbps data rates on LTE Cat 4+ networks. Completing the Zoom's upmarket picture is a metal unibody that measures only 5mm at the sides.

Samsung Galaxy J2

Samsung's Galaxy J2 its an entry-level 4.7-inch Super AMOLED Android that works with 4G LTE networks, with the complementary Ultra Data Saving software tagging along for Opera users (But other browsers, like mobile Chrome, also behave similarly). It is powered by a 1.3GHz Exynos 3475 quad-core CPU in conjunction with a 1GB RAM and a 2000mAh battery. The J2 features a 5-megapixel main camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing secondary cam.

Huawei Nexus 6P

The premium model between two 2015 Google releases (the other one being LG's Nexus 5X), Huawei's Nexus 6P features a WQHD (2560 x 1440) Gorilla Glass 4 screen, the Snapdragon 810 v2.1 64-bit octa-core CPU, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Flagship-tier specs like Bluetooth v4.2, USB Type-C, and fingerprint identification (with Android Pay preloaded) deck out its 5.7-inch profile as well.

Promising to capture more light than usual, the 6P's 12.3- and 8-megapixel cameras come with 1.55um and 1.44um pixels, respectively. It also gives us a 3-microphone system, a 3GB RAM, and a 128GB maximum internal memory.

Meizu PRO 5

Meizu's PRO 5 boasts a collection of ultra-high-end specs, including the brand's mTouch 2.1 fingerprint ID (up to five fingerprints), a USB Type-C connector, and the 14nm Eynos 7420 octa-core CPU (with Mali-T760 graphics and up to 4GB of RAM) made popular by Samsung.

Multimedia-wise, it is armed with a 21.16-megapixel dual-tone flash camera rocking both laser and phase-detection autofocus, a Hi-Fi audio system with a solo amp circuit, and a 64GB maximum UFS 2.0 (Universal Flash Storage) memory. These features are backed by a 3050mAh battery accompanied by Meizu's mCharge 2.0 technology.

Xiaomi Mi 4c

A close relative of the Mi 4i (and Mi4 LTE), the 5-inch Full HD (Sharp/AUO) Mi 4c rocks a high-end specs list that consists of a USB Type-C connector (reversible), a split-octa-core Snapdragon 808 SoC (with 2GB/3GB of RAM), as well as the Edge Touch function accompanying its 13- and 5-megapixel cameras -- both capable of Full HD videos. Despite lacking a microSD card slot, it comes with a 16GB/32GB eMMC 5.0 memory alongside a 3080mAh battery capacity.

iPhone 6S Plus

The 2015 iPhone 6S Plus takes after its predecessor (iPhone 6 Plus) in terms of its 5.5-inch screen, though this time, the 3D Touch technology, which enables new touch gestures based on the pressure applied, is at the ready. Similar to the 6S (4.7-inch), it upgrades the previous models' primary camera from 8 megapixels on a Full HD capacity to 12 megapixels with a premium-class 4K video option in tow.

The iPhone 6S Plus's frame, which is 0.2mm thicker than the previous one, is a bitter bite out of this Apple release, but at least a more-advanced A9 CPU chip resides within. Speaking of advancement, its selfie shooter is now a 5-megapixel HD FaceTime camera, using the display's 500nit brightness as its own Retina flash.

The 6S Plus also adds Rose Gold to 6 Plus's color palette (+), a coating that only a handful of flagship devices don as of 2015 Q4.

Huawei G8

Though failing to deliver a Quad HD screen and a 4K video capability, the 2015 Huawei G8 hits an assortment of upscale notes, including fingerprint-based user identification, a sapphire-protected 13-megapixel rear camera, and an octa-core (1.5GHz + 1.2GHz) Snapdragon 615 CPU. It also hints to a potential high-end seat in terms of design, sporting dual antennas, a bottom-placed set of six speaker holes, and a 2.5D Cambered Glass 5.5-inch screen (Full HD). Topping off the G8 are 32GB of expandable memory, 3GB of RAM, and 3000mAh of battery power.

Lenovo A6010

Expanding Lenovo's mid-range lineup is the 5-inch (1280 x 720) A6010, which features a 13-megapixel autofocus camera with an LED flash, Dolby Atmos audio fed through twin speakers, and a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU tied up with 2GB of RAM. It also sports a 5-megapixel selfie cam, which seems like a passable backup for the aforementioned primary camera. Also on board are a 2300mAh battery and a 16GB native memory.

YU Yunique

The 4G-ready YU Yunique's specs list is quite the opposite of what its name might suggest, as it includes an average (as of September 2015) 4.7-inch HD Gorilla Glass 3 screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 64-bit quad-core CPU (1.2GHz), and an 8-megapixel camera. The rest of its features are even less unique, including a 2000mAh battery, an 8GB expandable memory, and a humble 2-megapixel selfie cam.

Lenovo Phab Plus

Seemingly a tablet that got lost in the smartphone jungle, the Lenovo Phab Plus features 6.8 inches of Full HD screen real estate, with a few high-scoring facets on other departments as well. Its audio output banks on the Dolby Atmos technology escorted by a 1cc sound chamber on the rear, just along its rear camera. Speaking of cameras, this 3500mAh-equipped phablet sports a 13-megapixel dual flash main cam and a 5-megapixel selfie cam accompanied by an external selfie flash accessory of its own. The Phab Plus's 7.6mm body also houses an octa-core processor and a 2GB RAM.

Acer Liquid Z530S

While it loses the mammoth 4000mAh battery power offered by the Z630 and Z630S (offering a 2420mAh battery instead), the Acer Liquid Z530 arms itself with a similar dual 8-megapixel camera combination, while a 1.3GHz octa-core processor and a 3GB RAM take charge of things behind the scenes. Its specs also include a 32GB internal memory -- twice that of the plain Z530's -- and a 5-inch HD screen with the Taiwanese brand's signature Zero Air Gap architecture.
