Which new smartphone has you most fired up?

There's a lot more than just iPhones out there

We're only a third of the way through September, but this month has already delivered more updates and upgrades in the smartphone realm than the entire summer preceding it. There's a new Moto X, two new iPhones, a new Sony flagship, and a smartphone with a screen that rolls off the edge. If you're in China, Huawei will even sell you a high-end sandwich of sapphire, ceramic, and aluminum, which it calls its Ascend P7 Sapphire edition.

While everyone is naturally curious about what this year's premium phones will look and feel like, when it comes time to spend our money, many of us will look to midrange devices instead. That's where Motorola's refreshed Moto G, HTC's Desire 820, and Microsoft's pair of new Lumia phones will do battle. And, lest we forget about the gutsy outsider that refuses to go down, there's also a new BlackBerry coming soon, featuring the weirdest form factor we've ever seen from the Canadian company.

It's been quite a flurry of activity and we'd like to know how you feel about it all. Which company has done the most to revive your desire for a new handset? Is it Samsung with its upgraded design and materials, or perhaps Sony with its most refined smartphones yet and the promise to play PlayStation 4 games directly on your phone?
