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...

Which phone has the overall best sound coming from the stereo speakers or headjack?

it is my personal opinion ,HTC M8 is the best I used compared to Apple ,Samsung and LG . not to mention that LG has low audio levels and get easily distorted , samsung is good and apple too in quality the difference is not huge but in power output the HTC way better ,paired with good earphones and equalizer app like poweramp . the quality of HTC loudspeaker is far way superior than others you'll see a huge difference , and I 've seen a post here over the HTC M8 price for 190 Dollar on ebay which is very good deal if you are looking for audio . I 've not used the HTC M9 it could be better , but I'm very satisfied with M8 .

I believe your are comparing the HTC one m8 to the wrong phones. I wonder how the HTC would stack up to audio phones like the lenovo vibe x3 or Vivo XPlay series. Maybe even the meizu MX pro phones. Those phones were touted as Hi Fi phones. That's what I want to know. Has anyone owned any of those phones and compared sound between them? I'd love to if I could afford them lol.

No not to the wrong phones , as I said in previous comments and this one compared to samsung apple and lg, I compare it to what I've used , not all , hence the wait for the answers from phonearena , I just added my opinion ,waiting too for the comparison or answers from phonearena . but my impression , is that M8 sound is good as it goes , the difference after that will be minor and you will need Flac files with very good headphones to spot differences. I use Sennheiser IE80 in-ear headphone around 250 dollar on M8 which costs now 190 Dollar. and I'm very happy with it . the other thing , I think LG , Samsung , Apple , Sony , HTC will deliver overall more mature experience with the phone , softwware ,etc .

Make a neat tower from each brand - an equal number of units each. See which stacks neatly and which is highest. I need it for... science.

I think a helpful list would be - A top 3 or 5 list that has an overall clean and loud sound output when connected to an external amp/car stereo/portable speaker - Phones that actually have decent/loud volumes when ringing people. Both headset and loudspeaker - Smartphones that have friendly interfaces that are easy for first time users so we don't have to show our parents a hundred times how to add a contact or browse the internet - aka Samsung easy mode - A top 5 list of rugged/ip68 phones that don't actually suck or are no name brands - Phones that are unique/offer unique experiences like the sharp crystal or Microsoft 950 with continuum - Top 5 list of the most beautiful phones you have

Is the Touch ID scanner of iPhone 6S most accurate, or at 2nd/3rd position. Please don't say it's very fast as that of Galaxy s7's, or Lg g5's. Would appreciate an accurate response.

I have come to see the iphone 6s plus beat every other phone when it comes to raw performance (including s7 edge, g5, mate 8, mi 5), according to precise real-life tests. Might be due to several factors such as lower resolution. Could it have achieved this feat with a quad hd resolution. Many people are curious to know that.

I'm about to switch to iphone after 5 years of being Android fan. The reason is; i discovered that during the last two years i didn't use any of the customization features of android, even the widgets, I want more stable OS, more reliable, with stylish and beautiful design and more important have instant access to the regular updates. however, during the last two days I started considering the HTC 10 or Huwawi Mate8. Am I right in this decision? and Do you have any advice for me? Thanks in advance for your help
