For me 2016 Nexus phones, Sony X Premium, iPhone 7/Plus and 2016 Lumia flagship I'd like to say Note 6, but I have low expectations after the Note 5 was just a bigger S6 I hope they go back to big changes like the Note 4, but I dont think they will

I don't think one should be excited for a Lumia flagship this year. Let's see if Windows 10 Mobile picks up and shapes up to be a Android and iOS contender.

HTC or Huawei Nexus will be the best, I am in love/obsessed with my 6P best phone of 2015. Cant wait to see the successor of it

What do you mean by "big changes"? The SoC isn't the only thing that can differenciate the S series from the Note series.

I meant how S6->Note 6 had nothing new in terms of hardware, except minor iterations, e.g. slightly wider aperture lens S5->Note 4 had the new Exynos 5433 (new ISA/CPU Arch and GPU microArch) and IMX240 sensor with OIS

At least that's what we are hoping for.

Hope it has the new UFS2-2lane storage..it will kick som serious ass if it does.

There's UFS 2.1 now :) There no major improvements, but that's because UFS storage is limited by NAND speed

the samsung made UFS2.0-2 is 2x as fast as normal UFS2.0 if you look at the spec/info http://www.phonearena.com/news/Samsung-introduces-blazing-fast-256GB-UFS-2.0-memory-chip-can-we-say-Galaxy-Note-6_id78782

I believe it's still normal UFS 2.0 AFAIK UFS 2.0 has always supported using to a multiple lanes of HS Gear 3 Samsung's first gen of UFS 2.0 didnt have 2 lanes Probably because it wasn't needed since its NAND didn't exceed 600MB/s The upcoming 256GB chips can do 850MB/s, which means it needs another HS Gear 3 lane, otherwise it would be capped at 600MB/s

I think there will be nothing interesting coming this year anymore in Android world.. S7 edge is best smartphone at the moment and Note 6 won't be much better except bigger. LG is bad with its display and software which sucks so not to be excited about V10(of course it will be great phone) but after owing S7 edge I doubt there will be much surprises in Android world. Maybe Apple finally catch up with Android in Term of camera.. Nexus not sure what nexus will bring new to table as owner of 6p and using Android N I feels there will be hardly a surprise in next nexus..

Nothing really excited about anything this year, really it's just the nexus and iPhones.

The rumors surrounding the Note 6 are pretty exciting. Sd823, New camera(Not the 12mp one on the S7), possible new features because Sammy didn't add any new feature from Note 4 to 5. You don't get just a little excited speculating about the Note 6?

Photography on Android flagship has reached it's peak already. The Note 6's camera won't suprise anyone.

If it is that new camera that Sammy is working then I beg to differ.

I'm not an apple fan but i'm honestly most excited about the iphone right now, All phones presented this year has been so boring in terms of progression. Phonemarket is becoming stiff. Even my z3 broke down i bought another one because i couldn't see the point in buying a z5 just to get less batterylife with a fancy handscanner or waiting for the X series... I hope next year will come with more interesting news phones!
