better lcd screen? from when the lcd is better than the amoled? when you use an amoled screen you can't go back to a lcd.. freedom from TW? hahaha! TW lags a little but is the best featured interface. i'm wondering what phone are you using?

i do a lot of cross referencing while i am on the line. Multi windows on my 8.4 is an important feature to me. Samsung for feature. XiaoMi for best value for money.

does it heat up with even slightest use? does the battery last even for 10 hours? Does the camera produce good images? Memory card slot?

Even though I don't use it much I have a Nexus 4 with Lollipop and to answer your questions - no, yes, yes in ideal lighting situations, no.

Got a Motorola, and before that it was a Nexus (good ol' Nexus One). Completely happy with that choice. I am genuinely surprised at the relatively low percentage of Samsung phone owners compared to Samsung's actual market share in the industry. Which apparently means (no troll intended) that Samsung phones aren't quite as popular when it comes to a slightly more tech-aware population than average (though Sammy's still in the lead).

It seems the PhoneArena user were more aware of the phone compared to general public. Just look at 210 OnePlus, which represent of 2%+ vote. That's mean we're all aware on how good (or bad) the OnePlus is. It's even more amazing considering in the vote the new brand OnePlus, with only one product "One", could beat Blackberry by 100%.

Get over your advancements being spurned by John Chen already.

Really? And why BB got smaller vote than OnePlus???

What does that have to do with your advances being spurned by John Chen?

I'm currently using the LG G2 and I regret it. Wish I would have paid the extra $100 to get the Samsung G. Note 3, won't make that mistake again.

Haha. I'm with you guys. Could have gotten a Nexus but I chose the G2 instead. Worst mistake I ever made. I now use Moto X 1st Gen and had to give the G2 away (cuz I couldn't even sell it for a decent price)

What's wrong? G2 were a solid phone.

Same. My G2 is really glitchy. For instance, it has random reboots right after you unlock it. It also overhats a lot and has horrible build quality. But I got it for $50 on contract, and you get what you paid for.
