Morning guys (for us in the UK), Following CES and MWC this year I've encountered a minor dilemma in deciding on a phone to get this summer. With a number of the top companies recently announcing/ releasing new flagships, the market is ripe for a picking - I'm just struggling to find a phone that fulfils all I desire. (I would've said requirements, but let's be honest no average consumer REALLY requires the best screen or fastest storage). So those in the running are the current/ upcoming flagships from the leading Android companies: Samsung Galaxy S6, HTC One M9, Sony Xperia Z3, LG G3, Moto X (2014). Price isn't particularly an issue as I'm 18, employed and have little to no responsibilities. Having recently read the HTC One M9 TechSpot review, I was hoping it would tick near-all of my boxes, and while it was close it was (as the saying goes) - no cigar. The main issues are: Battery life - I need a phone that will go from moderate use of web browsing, LTE and consistent playing of music from 6:30 in the morning (when I leave for work) to roughly 19:30 when I'll return from the gym. While I can charge it at work I shouldn't HAVE to. Storage Size - I require a storage capacity of at least 64GB (40GB for music and spare for misc.), I am happy with a MicroSD slot, having reformatted two 64GB MicroSDs previously to work in phones which claimed 'up to 32GB'. So unless I want to just throw money at them, a MicroSD slot is ideal. Display - Not particularly bothered, minimum 1080p. Camera - Ideally I'd love a good rear shooter for when I'm out and about and don't have my main camera on me. I'm a sucker for zoom as well - just saying! Front facing cameras really don't phase me, I'm not that type of person. Design - I'm loving the premium metal designs of flagships and am relatively content with matte, ideally I'd like a thin phone for pocket convenience. I am coming from a Galaxy S3 mini with a case that brings it to ~1cm thick. I've never liked the big phone designs that flagships have moved towards but it doesn't deter me really. The usuals - minimal bloatware, as powerful as possible processor, decent RAM. Can any of you help me come to a decision? Judging on the above the HTC One M9 is what I've based my estimated pricing around. Staying with O2 on contract for 2GB data and insurance I am looking at £45 a month for 2 years which includes my employee discount of 30% off the airtime contact. My company are most likely going to acquire EE so I will see nearer the time if I get any discounts there, or the rumours of us launching our own mobile network, maybe I can get very good deals on that - but as I said, price isn't really a factor.
