Ranked number 1 is the Samsung Galaxy S6, which by the way boasts one of the most capable back-facing cameras among Samsung flagships at 16 megapixels, with Optical Image Stabilization and Tracking AF among its options.
This camera phone has a considerably high pixel density at 515ppi on its 5.7-inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440) Super AMOLED screen, which likely translates to sharper images.
Question #1: Should it be a smartphone or not?
The 3rd best one records videos in a 3820 x 2160 pixel resolution (aka 4K or Quad HD) with its 16-megapixel rear camera, joining other ultra high-end models imaging-wise.
This camera phone replaces the G3's screen with an IPS Quantum display, which LG says improves both brightness and contrast by more than 50%.
The One M9 by HTC builds its front-facing camera with the HTC UltraPixel technology, for the purpose of taking in more light for crisper selfies.
This camera phone promises simplicity and user-friendliness because of the third generation of Huawei's signature Emotion UI (v3.0),.
Ranked number 7 is the Motorola Moto X 2014, which by the way sports a 13-megapixel camera that records 4K videos (384 x 2160), a resolution similar to what is found on 2014 flagships from other companies.
The Xperia Z3 by Sony records videos in a 3840 x 2160 maximum resolution (4K), with one of the highest camera resolutions for smartphones as well (20.7-megapixel).
The 9th best one comes with preinstalled image/video-editing apps with its 13-megapixel camera, comparable to the features packed by flagship models from Samsung or Sony.
Ranked number 10 is the HTC Desire 626, which by the way sports a duo of 13- and 5-megapixel cameras, which is what we normally see on high-end devices released late in 2014.
The 11th best handset is run by a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, one of the fastest hardware that we have seen on mini models.
The 13th best handset is armed with the Ultra Power Saving Mode, a typical energy-saving feature offered by most of Samsung's front-line Androids.
The 15th best model displays up to 60 characters on-screen (most rectangular smartphones show only 40 characters), likely making it a convenient business assistant.
