Yttersta, 28 Nov 2014How interesting. The only website out there who is in the interaction of "Done black Frid... more The HTC M8 is just a cheap aluminum and a very bad design with zero features and yet overpriced! And HTC logo has no class too! I feel sorry for you dude! lol
The list doesnt include Xiaomi Mi3. It aint that hard to get this phone, yeah?
How interesting. The only website out there who is in the interaction of "Done black Friday shopping guide for phones" and "Not have the HTC One M8 in the list" is GSMArena, I was quite set on it from the other reviews but for some reason here it has been excluded, and the reasons given to it are very consumerist ideas boosting things people might never ever use, such as water resistance and the difference between QHD and Full HD displays. To me for instance, the fact that it has a built in headphone amp is far more important than battery hungry QHD screens or the ability to record video underwater...
sk, 27 Nov 2014where is so called best phone of the last year " Samsung galaxy note 3" ???It has been replaced by the best phone of this year... the Note 4.
A very congratulations to the GSM Arena team for this awesomely done review!
Disregarding the HTC One M8 and Moto X is inexcusable. Those are two of the top 5 phones of the year.
Nexus 6 a really large device? That's subjective. And how can you complain about it not being 64-bit. What other device in your list is 64-bit?
Anonymous, 27 Nov 2014xiaomi mi3 for $240-260 is a better choice than anything else in the sub-€500 category.I totally agree. One of the best phomes.
Once again GSMArena demonstrates a high level of professionalism and commitment. Keeping an independant opinion isn't easy and I wholeheartedly agree this gen iPhones are not good buying options given what the market has got to offer, unless you are heavily invested on iOS/OSX already.
Taking so hard and unpopular decisions like this speaks volumes about one of the few mainstream tech media sites which try to keep their dose of objectivity as high as possible.
Cheers and go on! Thanks for the reliability and great work!
very nice list. But you should add the Amazon fire phone now for only $199, unlocked !
Anonymous, 27 Nov 2014This sites credibility just went out of the window after what it has said about the HTC One M8... moreMay be, you did not read the M8 review earlier. 4MP ultrapixel camera in M7 was ok because it was a new concept and unknown at that time. Same thing repeated in 2014 flagship was a blunder from HTC. Had HTC fixed it, it definitely would have been included in this list.
This sites credibility just went out of the window after what it has said about the HTC One M8. Speakers? Really?
It's pros easily outweigh it's cons for the price, yet the plastic, similar priced and similar specc'd S5 gets a mention?
How about Nokia Lumia 1020, best camera phone in business?
300€ - max 400€
TheFazz, 27 Nov 2014I own the G3, and it's stellar in every way. Perfect!!!Yeah, I'm sure it is a great phone!
Not a good list, missing many options which are better than those listed, especially in the 100-200 and 200-300 euro range.
