Poll results: Which phone maker do you think will create the best 2015 flagship?

Maybe HTC will ditch its camera shenanigans and finally shine with the One M9, or LG has something up its sleeve for the G4? Let's not forget the myriad of Chinese manufacturers that are just waiting for one of the big boys to slip, and immediately take their place - juggernauts like Huawei or Xiaomi should not be underestimated at all, too. Finally, Apple will be making an iPhone 6s or a 7 or another Plus, and that's the company everyone will be eyeing next fall.
It turns out that despite all of its troubles this year with the less-than-impressive Galaxy S5, 30% of our 3749 respondents have a warm place in their heart for Samsung, pegging it as the most likely to wow us in 2015. Next in line is Sony, with 19% of the votes, which is an achievement no doubt reflecting the excellent Xperia Z3/Z3 Compact and their amazing battery lives for the respective categories. Sony is followed by HTC with 16% of our respondents, who still have great hope that the company will overcome what's holding it in the camera department, and capitalize on its excellent design and software abilities. LG takes the fourth place, while you placed Apple fifth. Which will it be? We won't know until around that time next year, but it will be fun to rewind and see if our expectations materialized like that.
Which phone maker do you think will create the best 2015 flagship?

Nice list. I think Motorola's project Ara (now Google's) will produce the best flagship because it has the potential to be a low end device as well as be a high end device. No other device can offer anything like that. Need a basic phone today, then put in a lowly Snapdragon 400 CPU with 1 GB of ram. Next day put in a module with a Snapdragon 810 with 3 GB of ram. Please list all the devices that have the potential to transform like this.

These ratio happen to be the direct represention of Samsung Global Market Share. I have no problem using other brand Android phone. Just that for now i still think Samsung give a slightly better value for my money. I just don't like Samsung attitude towards putting so many third parties bloatware that my new Galaxy S 8.4 LTE only has 11.4 out of 16GB. That's bad. If XiaoMi flagship is more readily available then i might dump Samsung.

Exactly. Although my last 3 phones have all been Galaxies, i am pretty sure that my next phone is gonna be the next HTC flagship. Still, i do believe that Samsung as always will create the best OVERALL flagship, their recent slight change in design tells me that they are starting to listen more to their customers and are willing to change their direction, and i have no doubt that we will have a totally revamped UI with the S6. Still, i am going HTC next, no phone maker can come close to their design language and their premium builds, and with them ditching the 4up crap, they should have an S6 true competitor.

Samsung is the only company which is innovating and not providing dull screen, dull camera, hideous, no innovation craps like Sony does. Remember buddy who's soaring into profits and whose smartphone business is making losses??

I have a Note 3 and I agree this site does have a large legion of Samsung fanatics. Samsung phones are always among the best in terms of performance and stands above the crowd in features (Wacom, expandable storage, swappable battery, extra sensors) but trail the cream of the crop in design. Im not talking just about metal vs plastic debate as LGs have a much nicer look and feel with their use of plastic, but thats all about to change as Samsung profits are falling off providing motivation to come up with a better designed product to match all the other areas they currently excel at.

I'm with Microsoft all the way but sadly I'll choose Samsung especially the note 5 it will be the phone of 2015 (sadly :( ) , Samsung always gives the best hardware in the market Hoping windows 10 for phones and Lumia 940 ,1530 to be the best out there
