The latter already released their flagships for the rest of the year, the Galaxy S6, the S6 edge, and the HTC One M9. 

Well, all of these phones are pretty solid improvements over their predecessors, although One M9's supremacy over its predecessor is arguable.  is a much better phone than the M8, but we digress. Here's how the LG G4 fares against its noteworthy rivals - the Galaxy S6 and the One M9.
