Poll results: Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime, LG G3, or HTC One M8 Prime - which one you'd rather have?

Poll results: Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime, LG G3, or HTC One M8 Prime - which one you'd rather have?
Last week, we ran an unusual poll, asking you to choose between three unannounced high-end smartphones: LG G3, Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime, and HTC One M8 Prime. Of course, we didn’t pick these three handsets randomly. We did it because it appears that they have a lot in common, including Quad HD (1,440 x 2,560) displays measuring more than 5 inches, 3GB of RAM, and metal-based designs.

Surprisingly or not, our readers’ favorite unannounced flagship smartphone among these three is the LG G3. From a total of 5,089 voters, 2,077 (40.81%) said that they’re looking forward to having LG’s handset rather than the other two devices. Next comes the HTC One M8 Prime, with 1,782 votes (33.96%). Finally, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime is the least favorite among the three, being in the minds and hearts of only 1,284 voters (25.23%).

Since we published the poll, LG confirmed that its G3 would be officially announced later this month, on May 27. We’re thinking that the company is planning to start selling the handset shortly after that, so we might see it in stores in June. That’s also when the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime could be released - if we’re to believe the latest rumors. As for the HTC One M8 Prime, this is expected to be introduced in September. But that doesn’t mean it won’t be able to give the LG G3 and Galaxy S5 Prime a run for their money.

Naturally, it’s hard to say if our poll’s results will reflect in how many sales these three upcoming flagships can garner. Some of our readers may change their mind once the smartphones are announced and we get to know everything about them. But we’ll see what happens later this year, right?

Which of these three upcoming flagship Android smartphones you think you'll want to get?

I'm sure all 4" iPhone screens are like precision medical instruments and you can tell the iGirls that it is all about positioning this phenomenal little device in exactly the right place...

No hurt feelings. I used to have an iPhone. The screen is pretty good for something so small and such low resolution :)

I think the majority of the world would agree that a full HD display is superior to any iPhone non HD display. That's why a full HD display is almost pushing 3 times the number of pixels on the display. But someone who is blindly in love with Apple cannot see that there is superior displays out there. I guess that's why Apple broke down and decided to go with higher resolution displays for the next version of the iPhone. At least now the blind i people can finally see what the Android people have seen already for years.

Apple just see profits. They don't care what people like to see in their phones.

iPhone screens are great for their size, but a 5.2" 1080 screen is far superior. Easier to read, more pleasant to view videos and play games, and more room for typing. Plus, with today's SoC's, a large screen doesn't mean you have to sacrifice battery life. LG G2 is clear evidence of this, while maintaining a great screen-to-body ratio.

iPhone 6 -4.7'' or 5.5'' Full HD Retina (aka Gimmick version of IPS) dispaly -A8 SoC 2x faster than A7 -Improved Fingerprint scanner -2000mAh+ battery -iOS 8 with new looks and multitasking features -New sexy design with ultra slim body -Beats Audio software and Headphones -12+mp Camera with OIS -etc All these features I mentioned are very likely to happen.If so, I will consider iPhone 6 to be my 2nd iPhone after dissapointed iPhone 5. But still I have to wait and compare iPhone 6 with upcoming HTC One Prime,LG G3,Galaxy S5 Prime and ofc Note 4.

I think the theme of the iPhone 6 is going to be "HD". Apple is adding HD audio at long last (24 bit playback) and will have a bigger screen, i.e. "RetinaHD" or something like that. I don't know about the camera. I read it was just 8MP again with OIS. 12MP OIS would be "HD" and that would fit with the theme. All in all, the iPhone 6 should be a great phone. I am ambivalent about it, largely because I moved away from the iPhone and would have a hard time going back to a locked down phone without AdBlock, without a real file system, etc.
