Surprisingly or not, Samsung received the highest number of votes: 21.62% . Of course, it’s hard not to appreciate devices like the Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge, Galaxy S5, and others - not to mention the fact that Samsung released the largest number of smartphone models in 2014 (at least when we talk about relevant companies).
The second place is taken by Motorola, with 19.99% of votes. The Moto X, Moto G, Droid Turbo, and the Nexus 6 (albeit a Google-branded handset) certainly helped Motorola’s brand image last year.
What about the third place? Well, that’s taken by Sony, with 19.02% of votes. The Japanese company launched some very appealing handsets in 2014, including the Xperia Z1 Compact, Xperia Z2, Xperia Z3, and Xperia Z3 Compact.
Apple, with its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, came out fourth (10.18%), while HTC (One M8, Butterfly 2, Desire 820, etc) received 8.41% of votes, thus occupying the fifth place. LG (7.16%), Microsoft / Nokia (5.74%) and Xiaomi (3.4%) also received a significant number of votes. You can check out the full poll results below:

Galaxy S5 is a good phone, but the design is ugly IMO.

Too many Samsung fans here. Same as Apple haters (I count myself as one too). Other then that, the chart seems legit: Apple beat them all. On Android side, Motorola did best, then Sony, HTC and LG. Samsung was (..counting) 6th. After those comes Xiaomi and then MSFT/Nokia.

Can you please tell us what is so special about the iPhone 6 and 6+ that made them the best lineup among all others?

I'm guessing his statement is predicated on the fact that the iPhone 6+ owned the "phablet" segment, with only a fiscal quarter of sales, and the iPhone 6 killed the sales of every other flagship in 2014.

+1, Samsung fans only comes to this kinda articles to vote their favourite brand. Otherwise they are always busy in other articles especially articles relating to Sony's.

I think you are conflating two things but for clarity, Sony makes great products but has awful marketing strategies. The Z2 & 3 are up there with the best but their marketing is so poor it is embarrassing. The only thing to really criticise with the Xperia Z line is the camera software algorithms. By the way, I am a Nexus 6 user so let's not even go near the Sony fan/troll crap! Let's try to be objective as opposed to blindly following brands!

Samsung had the worse line-up, too many crappy low-mid end phones.

Samsung is also going to have the worst lineup in 2015 with their ultra crappy low-mid android and tizen phones.
