Its all about preference, where you put your priorities on top as what is most required by you from your smartphone.

I have tried to cover all the major features of each brand and to reduce the confusion within same brand I have taken only one option from each brand. Now, its up to you to decide and compare with other brands. Here you should also keep in mind that apart from SAMSUNG all the other brands are Chinese so if you wish to go for a Brand Name then you can definitely go for SAMSUNG. Otherwise, it’s all about what do you look forward to, in your smartphone.
