10. HTC One M8
The HTC One M8 is still in this year’s list as it’s still a recommended android phones if you are still considering. It’s still hugely impressive. The Duo Camera is sharp as a tack and the design. HTC One M8 is an excellent phone that HTC has done in awhile.
If you are looking for gaming, watching movies, taking pictures or just browsing all for work, you should get yourself a HTC One M8. It is also the first phones to get the Android Lollipop update.
The price of this phone also has dropped this year. Be sure to check out the local stores on this phone. Take in the design, listen to the BoomSound speakers and glide around the Sense UI. The M9 of course offers better versions of the same things, but you’ll pay a lot more for it. The HTC One M8 is priced around RM1,600 to RM1,900 in Malaysia.
Price in Malaysia: RM1,600 to RM1,900
9. HTC One Mini 2
This phone inherited a lot from the M8 with the similar build and the same BoomSound speakers but in a smaller more affordable package.
There is a quad core processor and also a 13MP camera on the back in place of the HTC One M8’s UltraPixel snapper, but the key thing is that the HTC One Mini 2 is designed for those who’d prefer a slim phone without sacrificing the premium design. The HTC One Mini 2 is priced from RM1,200 to RM1,600 in Malaysia
Price in Malaysia: RM1,200 to RM1,600
8. Google Nexus 6
At 6 inches, this is very much a phablet but then again, it offers so much that you’ll really start to warm to it quickly. Plus the edge-to-edge design means it’s nowhere near as large as it should be – if you can get over the price, it’s a must have.
The bright 6 inch AMOLED display and the 13 MP camera is more true to life than the previous model (Nexus 5). This is the best Nexus Google has ever crafted. And, when you think about it, you’re not going to need to hold onto your money, as you’ll require both hands to grab onto this two-handed monster. The Google Nexus 6 is priced from RM1,900 to RM2,100 in Malaysia
Price in Malaysia: RM1,900 to RM2,100
7. Sony Xperia Z3
It is an improvement from the previous model the Xperia Z2 in some areas. The screen is large (5.2 inches with full 1080p resolution) and the technology behind the screen gives a boost to the overall brightness of the display, which makes it look fantastic.
It comes with an impressive spec, the quad core 2.5 GHz processor, Adreno 330 CPU and a 3GB RAM. It feels premium and also its water and dust resistant.
It can do a lot of things which you would be impressed. If you own a PlayStation 4 then the Remote Play feature that lets you stream PS4 games to the handset could be of real interest – and if it’s not, it should be.
It’s a great phone, but the experience isn’t quite flawless enough to get it any higher in our charts, with a disappointing camera and buggy software being chief among its problems. The Sony Xperia Z3 is priced from RM1,899 to RM1,999 in Malaysia
Price in Malaysia: RM1,899 to RM1,999
6. Samsung Galaxy Note 4
The Galaxy Note series never fails as the Galaxy Note 4 arrives to show that Samsung still has what it takes to make an excellent super sized smart
The specs easily outperforms its closest rivals such as the iPhone 6 Plus. The Galaxy Note 4 certainly isn’t cheap, but a fantastic screen, brilliant specs and a great camera all help justify the hefty asking price. If you’re in the market for a large smartphone then you’ll definitely want to seriously consider the Note 4. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is priced from RM2,o00 to RM2,300 in Malaysia.
Price in Malaysia: about RM2,000 to RM2,300
5. Sony Xperia Z3 Compact
If you think the Xperia Z3 is too big for you, you can always can get this as a smaller handset with only a few minor cuts to the specifications that it ha on the big brother (Sony Xperia Z3).
It has the same 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor as the Z3, along with an Adreno 330 GPU and very good 20.7MP camera. The smaller 4.6-inch screen gives the Z3 Compact a better battery life than the full size Z3, as well as being more comfortable to hold. The price has also been cut, making the Z3 Compact a more compelling purchase.
We can say that it is the best compact Android phone out there today. It is remarkable as how Sony pulled off a lot of cool features in this handset. his is great work from Sony, and doubly brilliant if you own a PS4 too thanks to the Remote Play feature. The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is priced from RM1,700 to RM1,899 in Malaysia.
Price in Malaysia: RM1,700 to RM1,899
4. LG G3
We would say that the best selling point for this LG G3 is that it’s display. The QHD resolution making it pin sharp, but it’s no longer the only phone packing such a screen.
The LG G3 has a great screen and high end specs, but the whole package isn’t quite there. It’s a strong handset that’s more phablet than phone, but it’s slightly let down by a lacklustre faux-metal design. The LG G3 is priced from RM1,300 to RM1,499 in Malaysia.
Price in Malaysia: RM1,300 to RM1,499
3. Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
If mone is not an issue then the Galaxy S6 Edge offers the same compelling specs as the standard S6 with the addition of an eye catching curved display.
Still, its 5.1-inch QHD screen is glorious, its 16MP camera impresses and it’s got a powerful octa-core processor and all the nifty features of the S6, like a fingerprint scanner and fast charging (awesome feature).
The curved screen feels like a missed opportunity but it’s undeniably stylish and if you can stomach the price tag this is a powerful, futuristic phone which is sure to inspire admiration and jealousy in everyone who sees it. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is priced around RM2,899 to RM3,100 in Malaysia
Price in Malaysia: RM2,899 to RM3,100
2. HTC One M9
HTC One M9 is easily the best looking Android phones out there and the best looking handset running and OS.
It also packs a lots of power and a pretty decent 20.7MP camera on the back, with its UltraPixel snapper relegated to selfie duties. Plus its slick Sense interface and impressive BoomSound audio make it a joy to use.
The One M9 is not really a big upgrade over the One M8 but this phone will always be our favorite for a long time. Compared to the Galaxy S6 this feels lacking in specs and features, but it’s as close to a work of art as a phone has come. The HTC One M9 is priced around RM2,599 in Malaysia.
Price in Malaysia: RM2,599
1. Samsung Galaxy S6
We all know that the Galaxy S5 sucked last year but Samsung has turned it all around with the Galaxy S6.
It’s got an incredible camera too and even the TouchWiz overlay, something which is traditionally bloated and clunky, has been polished into something far slicker.
It is packed with full of extras like fast charging and the fingerprint scanner. The Samsung Galaxy S6 really is the complete package and its octa-core Exynos processor leaves rivals in the dust. All that power is hard on the battery, but otherwise this is a near perfect phone.
It has everything, power, performance, a premium design and lots of extras. We know it’s not a cheap phone to get and it also lacks of a microSD card slot that might make you want to rethink of purchasing it but otherwise, it is the best android phone that we’ve ever used. The Samsung Galaxy is yours for about RM2,299.
Price in Malaysia: RM2,299 to RM2,399
