The 2014 Moto X is nicely designed and solidly built, has a great 5.2-inch AMOLED screen, performs superbly, and delivers a range of useful Moto 'experiences' on top of an otherwise uncluttered Android OS. Limited internal storage capacity and lack of MicroSD expansion are our main concerns.

Every inch the premium high-end smartphone, the Xperia Z2 delivers excellent performance, screen quality and camera resolution without compromising battery life. However, the abundance of third-party apps may confuse some users, and we noticed that the handset sometimes runs hot.

There's more to this phablet than its curved chassis, although the moderate screen resolution and lack of storage expansion are disappointing. On the plus side, battery life is good and LG's Android tweaks are largely successful. Overall though, the G Flex is simply way too expensive.
This phablet offers flexible dual SIM support, an 8-megapixel front camera, NFC and a screen/stand, all for an affordable price. On the minus side, there's an imbalance between the paltry 4GB of internal storage and the generous software bundle, and the screen resolution is moderate considering its size.
