We have some 90 smartphones in front of us, ask us anything about them!

For nearly 15 years now, PhoneArena has been one of the web's most recognizable mobile tech venues. As far as web sites go, that's a pretty long stretch. In that times, the various members of the team—some past, others still present—have brought, and will continue to bring, more news pieces, reviews, and articles than we care to count. We honestly wouldn't even risk querying our database lest it halts and catches fire. In any case, and as you can imagine, during all these years, hundreds—perhaps even thousands—of phones have passed through our halls for a closer inspection...

after using all of these phones , which is the most balanced android phone ? the overall best that has no major issues ? better screen , battery life , audio quality speakers as well headphones , operating system e.g. multitasking etc. actually a phone that you used and said '' man I can use this phone as my daily driver for a couple of years ''

Has any phone of its age held up as well as the LG G2!? (Aside from the camera) and could LG essentially "iPhone SE" the G2 and still have a hit on its hands?

is it possible to mention the best , worst of the bunch in certain categories not according to reviews but to your personal usage and opinions . or maybe recommend some phones for certain categories -handling -reading ,surfing web -audio quality (headphones, speakers) -camera -battery life etc.

wich is better, nexus 5 (2013) or moto x play? snapdragon 800 or 615?

78. Exynos.

chavook, Snapdragon 615 is even inferior to Snapdragon 600. Not to mention Snapdragon 800!

Yeah right so inferior i play game like Real racing whitout lag or any issue and its lag like a bitch on my sony Z1 ( SD800 ) SD615 cpu and memory wise is faster than SD800. SD800 beat it on GPU side by about 20-30% but most game use more cpu than GPU on android at least. Been using the moto x play since what 4 months now and i love it superb battery life. Screen dont take much MAH so you can play for hours and hours. 128 gb fast sd card ( 100 mb ) adopted as internal memory and its so cool to never again have to ask myself is this app movable to SD? Nexus 5 is a great device beside crappy camera ( moto x play destroy it on thats end ) and crappy battery life.

As a previous owner of both handsets i would suggest you Nexus 5. Xplay is good either especially battery life but overall Nexus 5 is the best . currently owning Nexus 5x but still missing my Nexus 5 ;(

1: Is the moto g 2nd gen gyroscope fixed with marshmallow? (Shaky issue) 2: Is the g3 worth buying now? It fits my budget and I intend to use vr. 3: is the difference in 1080p bs Qhd a big enough difference for vr?

Mom has a Nexus 4 and she loves it mostly because of its vanilla android simplicity. Sadly, the thing is starting to have issues. Is it the 5X a good replacement?

Yup absolutely good replacement . its like jumping into a new era :D

5x would be a great upgrade to a nexus 4 user.

Which phones feel the best to hold in the bare hand for more than 10 minutes at a time, as if actually on a call? May I please have (or buy) the 950 and 920? I'll gladly pay shipping :)

I would recommend any phone with rounded back they fit more nicely in hand than monolith styled phone.

Which one's fingerprint sensor is most accurate in case of wet hands (due to sweat) among the note 5, s7/edge, nexus 6p, lg v10 and iphone 6s? Plz mention how many attempts were succesful outof 10 for each of them. Thanks PA team.

How does the lg g2/g3 cameras hold up at current environment, considering its current price tag of sub-$300?

106. aho13

I 've owned G2,G3,G4 , I can say that the camera of both are rather good , talking about price mostly buying a flagship phone that got a price drop is better than buying a new midranger. G3 camera is better than G2 but all LG phone have lower audio quality ( low power ) through headphones and loudspeakers that was my major issue with LG. I would rather wait and get the G4 with price drop in a month or two .

Out of the phones you have which would you say is the best looking up close? In terms of build quality and feel? I personally think the nextbit robin is the best looking phone out there at the moment
