Lackluster flagships currently, next wave looks great.
Galaxy S5, HTC One (M8), and Xperia Z2
I was expecting alot more from these phones. Samsung got bigger and added nothing noteworthy (other than water resistance but some people just don't care for that). The One also got bigger with even more wasted space (lol at that camera). The Z2 I think is the best option but again.. dat bezel.
Flagships from smaller companies are getting better.
The LG G3, Moto X2, Note 4, Xperia Z3
Oh boy I almost got a boner typing that. Lets start with the G3, LG did many things right with the G2 so I'm expecting a phone the size of a Z2 but with a 5'5 screen (definitely got a boner now).
Motorola, another company that did many things right, honestly I cant see how they will improve the moto X and that is why I am so excited! The moto X, moto G, and Moto 360! Was anybody expecting these things?!
I give credit to samsung on their new UI, its alot better looking now so we can expect a beefier note 3 with a better UI (note 4). Lets hope they don't make the same mistakes they made with the S5 (I want that YOUM screen dammit!).
Ok Sony just give me a Z3 that has a bigger screen in the same body and you make me a happy camper.
So maybe I exaggerated a little, maybe the current flagships aren't that bad, maybe the Note 4 doesn't look that exciting (thanks S5), maybe the S5 being a water resistant band-aid is pretty kickass, maybe the Z2 is already a pretty damn solid device, and maybe I didn't actually get a woody typing about the G3 but I'll be damned if I don't have a point about flagships!
HTC One Maxx (2014) please don't be the size of a mid sized sedan.
