- Loudspeaker could have been a little bit better
#2 Samsung Galaxy S5
This phone was expected to break the records, just like its predecessor, but no such things happened. yet, it is one of the best and latest flagship phone from Samsung and also you can stay under a meter water with it for half an hour.

#3 Sony Xperia Z1 compact
If you are an iPhone hater and want to beat an iPhone 5c owner, this is the perfect phone for you.

#4 Sony Xperia Z
Many people may think, why I am recommending this phone? But the fact is that, it is the phone which brought the water proof feature to Xperia smartphones, and even after becoming two generations old, it has got the latest Kitkat upgrade, which is a great thing and you should not be afraid of lags while you use it, and its budget friendly too.

- Very good performance
- Full HD display is impressive
- Excellent camera
- Glass back is prone to scratches
