Useless guide. Where did you get such prices? Many phones should be moved one or two categories up.
I don't get your review on the Honor 8 GSm arena.The P9 has the same graphic card as Honor 8 and performs amazing in games.Honor 8 in many gaming reviews as well.So how come the Gpu performs bad ? Is it not optimized ? Do you have a faulty device ? How can a GPU on 1 phone also a flagship performs great ,on another not which is also a flagship ?

Why the hell Note5 is'nt present here?!
Note7 has gone but thre should be Note5 as u added S6 here
Why the hell there is no Redmi Note 3 & zte axon 7 in the 400-500 category rather than being along with the OnePlus 3 at 300-400 category
"This should make it easier for folks who can't tell Cortex-A57 apart from Super AMOLED." So basically all the samsung fanboys thinking a low end phone with Helio X10 is faster than iPhone 7.
I like HTC 10 and ZTE Axon 7 but I like researching heavily and it seems that the guys at XDA found out these 2 seemingly great phones have some serious issues with Wi-Fi range and strength of signal. Even Jaime Rivera at YouTube's Pocketnow mentioned HTC's Wi-Fi issues... Sad, but true.
Overall it's a good and comprehensive article.
we rely on gray import & dont get OEM warranties. So we'll take xiaomis except for the very high end prices, where they dont have options

Browndynamite.., 22 Oct 2016Where's the Redmi note 3Agree with u bro... Redmi Note 3 Pro is the CHAMP in US$100-150 price area, so why not get mentioned?
Also, I think Asus padfone S will fit the US$100-150 too, as it was a BEAST reigning at US$200-300 before with its SD801. It's the most affordable BEAST in my country as u can get it for just US$115 for 2GB RAM version (withour the tablet docking, ofc)
Read the article carefully. Conclusion : LG V20 is the best top smartphone so far very powerful excellent media device with superb Audio we always want.
Xperia xz all the way
-the fastest android phone for now(and the first android phone that can reach the same speed of ios a.k.a a10 fusion)
-the best camera on phone for now rear and back(great photo quality the colour accuracy and fastest autofocus,also the video stabilisation that out of this world)
