Following the recent influx of flagship Android phones, it’s time to reflect and take stock. There is rarely such a thing as a bad smartphone anymore, with the gap between iOS and Android finally being closed and Windows Phone approaching brazenly in the rear-view mirror. Every manufacturer has pretty much nailed the fast processor/crisp screen/great camera combination, so it’s tough for a phone to stand out in such a sea of success. But a choice does have to be made. Map out the pros and cons of the latest Android phones, though, and there’s still very little to divide the Galaxy S5 and One M8. The former is packed full of cutting-edge features, the latter is beautiful and highly capable; we’re divided. The Xperia Z2 certainly picks up bronze, though. Apple and Nokia, meanwhile, hold strong, if ageing, hands, with the promise of even stronger ones to come later this year.
