The OnePlus 2 is slightly more expensive than its predecessor, starting at $329 for the 16 GB model, but once again it features top-of-the-line hardware. OnePlus has opted for a Snapdragon 810 SoC with 3 or 4 GB of RAM and a 3,300 mAh battery, on the front is a 5.5-inch 1080p display, and on the rear a 13-megapixel camera with an f/2.0 lens, OIS and laser autofocus.
After delivering the best budget smartphone in 2013 and 2014, Motorola is going for the hat trick with this year's Moto G. It still costs $180 and it still features great hardware for the price. One of the biggest updates to the 2015 Moto G is that it finally comes with 4G LTE connectivity as standard, thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410’s integrated LTE modem. We’re also seeing decent upgrades to the front and rear cameras, MotoMaker support, plus a water resistant design.
For the most part, the S6 Active is a clone of the Galaxy S6 featuring the same 5.1-inch 1440p display, Exynos 7420 SoC inside, and 16-megapixel optically stabilized camera. But where they differ is in design. The Galaxy S6 Active is better suited to survive drops, harsh conditions and liquids. The Active also features a considerably larger battery, which promises to deliver far better battery life than the standard S6.
