Winner: Google Nexus 6

I think most of you saw this coming. But the Google Nexus 6 is an amazing phone, not to say the others aren’t. But Motorola did a really great job with this one. It’s a 6-inch smartphone, but feels a bit smaller, somewhere around 5.7-inches. It also has a 2560×1440 resolution display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and 3GB of RAM. Not to mention it’s running Android 5.0 Lollipop and is available on all five carriers here in the US (That’s US Cellular, AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile).

Runner Up: Samsung Galaxy Note 4

There’s no doubting that the Galaxy Note 4 is an amazing device. While it’s not a huge improvement over the Galaxy Note 3, it did improve in several places that needed it. It’s got a 5.7-inch 2560×1440 resolution AMOLED display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and 3GB of RAM. For intents and purposes it’s the exact same specs as the Google Nexus 6, aside from the software. While the Galaxy Note 4 is still running KitKat with Touchwiz on top.
