The 10 best phones to expect in the second half of 2015

The 10 best phones to expect in the second half of 2015
We've wrapped up most major phone announcements for the first half of the year, with Samsung's Galaxy S6, HTC One M9, Huawei P8, LG G4 and Xperia Z4 leading the charge. 

There is even more to look forward to this year, though - not only from the staple names, but from the Chinese companies like Xiaomi, Huawei, Lenovo, Meizu and Oppo, which are yet to fully chip in with their flagships. The Chinese makers managed to churn out excellent value-for-money proposition, paving the way for their handsets not only in China, but attracting some global attention and distribution, too. 

Given the trend of increased competition, we can reasonably expect great handsets from the second half of next year as well, when the big phone makers, save for Apple, are traditionally introducing their flagships. From the IFA expo and the iPhone unveiling around September, to the inevitable latecomer to the holiday party, let's round up what we could reasonably expect from H2 2015.

I am not a Apple fan, but I think they should ask that kind of money if they can gett it, and they proved that they can. After all, they have their on OS, longest and posebilly best supportere, their 8Mpx camera is quality like some others 16h snapper.. And if someone else can ask same amont of money who shouldn't they!? And that others has to go to top of spec. just to have jet another lagish product...who's main seiling point is that it looks like iPhone with "bigger this", "better that", "New..." "best HW ever" but still is not comperatibile

You idiots need to grow up and find something better to do. Y'all stay on this website arguing none stop as if it matters. Apple's products are overpriced, old spec'd fashion statements, Android's are glitchy at times, has issues because of google and has a lot of bloatware . GET OVER YOURSELFS AND GET A LIFE.

Honey, the iPhone 6 and its big bro barely did. It just has strong sales because of the Apple logo stamped on it.

Hey, my Cambodia fellow! I know you're from Cambodia. So am I. I'm not arguing with you to support any smartphone manufacturer. Just feeling I've seen you trolling everyone using any phone other than iPhone. So, let me tell you a fact brother: Cambodia is one of the poorest countries in the world whose citizens earn less than $3 a day, and 1/3 can even afford food or health medical care daily. So, why the hell are you proud of owning an iPhone? Why the hell do you always show iPhone off? In contrast, products with Apple logo should be banned throughout the country as they always sale overpriced products.

Banning a product just because of its price tag? The stupidest comment I never read on the Internet. My God, please help him or somebody takes him to hospital.

6s Plus maybe w/ 12 Mp camera and 2Gb ram will compete w/ Sammmy /LG... Honestly apple is just marketing not specs... People just love the apple icon, it makes us feel superior.

6. gaming64 unregistered

Waiting for the new iPhone. Hope the rumors about updated specs are true.
