Which of the phones announced at CES 2016 did you like the most?
CES 2016 is drifting away from us already, and all the major phone announcements are now behind us, that is why we wanted to ask you which of the handsets that were presented here tickled your fancy the most. Well, "major phone announcements" is an overstatement, considering that CES has now almost stopped to be the venue for anyone to present their newest handsets, yet there were still some interesting units unveiled in the past few days.

The biggest cohort of phones came actually came from Huawei, the world's third-largest handset maker. Granted, it mostly rehashed units that had already been released in its homeland, but since it used CES to announce an official entry in the US market, everyone listened and paid attention. That's especially true for the Honor 5X, which starts selling for $199 by the end of the month, and offers slim metal chassis, 5.5" 1080p display, dual SIM slots, and a 3000 mAh battery, as well as the full suite of AT&T and T-Mobile 4G frequencies. Yep, Huawei's direct sales push in the US will be under the Honor tag, just as it happened in Europe, because, well, the Huawei brand doesn't sit well with the feds just yet.

We also got the first phone announced with Snapdragon 820, the LeTV Max Pro, though this one likely won't be coming in the US this quarter, if at all, at least through any official channels. There were other interesting handsets bandied about at CES 2016, in the low- to mid-range segment, so take your favorite pick below, and tell us why in the comments.

All these Huawei brand snobs just don't get it! Haha....sorta surprised though the LeTV isn't winning. The qualcomm tech in it seem it will make it the nice device in the end. Or are some considering the 1080p an advantage? Seems like a nobrainer to pick the LeTV with next gen GPU and such though.

I couldn't just vote for one. I like the first 3, especially the Mate 8 and Honor 5X.

LeTV Max Pro! The first time it's genuinely OK to step up to QHD with such a powerful GPU and huge screen.

None of them attract me.
