This year has been boring for Handsets in terms of hardware so far. All the launches up until now have only been the PLUS versions of 2013 Flagships.

Have great expectations from the Denver version of the Tegra K1. It'll set the benchmark for the devices to come in 2015.

And who do we have to thank? Qualcomm for monopolizing the high end SoC market, they now got lazy as evident with the S801 and S805 (gap placement products).

Z7 Mini, but if it was 4.5" it would be perfect.

None of those, but I checked the Mi 4 for good measure. Looking forward to the Z3 Compact, even if I'm not gonna buy one.

None of the above. Mi4 could, but read the chinese gov spying, so no. Waiting eagerly for Moto X+1 :D

Mi 4 & Sony Xperia C3, but I'm more excited about the incoming Sony Z3 Compact.

All these mini phones except Sony sport the stupid quad core a7 cpu with adreno 305! They don't even want to differentiate! I blame Qualcomm for not discounting its chips! They are so expensive!

Face it, this year's flagship devices have only been minor revisions. The real technological generation leap is coming in 2015 with the Snapdragon 810 and more other widely adopted 64-bit capable SoCs which should offer a significant increase in performance and energy efficiency. We're also going to see even better QHD displays that are more energy efficient, brighter and accurate than now. This year has been about marginal bumps and beta testing new technology.

It's amusing to read adjectives like a "large" 5 inch screen & a "gigantic" 5.5 inch screen. My daily driver is a 6.5 inch octacore phone & trust me, once you play a high end game or watch a movie on it, you will NEVER go back to anything smaller. I have a note 3 too which is still a beast & far more powerful than. But I always prefer the 6.5 inch phone when I want to frag some zombies in dead trigger 2 or try my hand with racing in asphalt 8. Terming a 5.5 " screen as gigantic is amusing. That's just my opinion though.
