Sony Xperia Z5 Premium ( black)
Don't be tempted by the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium's attention-grabbing 4K screen. You can spend less money on a better all-round flagship phone.
Motorola Droid Maxx 2 ( 16GB, White)
Water resistance and a long-lasting battery make the Motorola Droid Maxx 2 a standout midrange phone, but it's limited only to Verizon customers.
HTC Desire 520
Don't be fooled by the Desire 520's low price. You can get a better-performing phone if you are willing to spend a little extra.

Huawei Mate S ( luxurious gold)
Though Huawei's flagship Mate S has classy looks and a great camera, you can find better-performing top-end phones for less money elsewhere.
Android and an awesome keyboard make the Priv the best BlackBerry in years, but if you're not a keyboard lover and aren't much of a security seeker, you'll find phones that are cheaper, or offer better features than the Priv.
Motorola Droid Turbo 2 ( 32GB, Black Soft Grip)
The Verizon-exclusive Droid Turbo 2 delivers on its promise of an uncrackable screen -- and it's a great all-around Android phone, too.
HTC One A9 ( opal silver)
HTC's One A9 is just fine for a midrange device, but for its astonishingly high full retail price, you can buy much more powerful, better overall phones.
Oppo R7 Plus ( gold)
The Oppo R7 Plus is the best combination of mid-range specs we've seen on a phone at this price for some time.
Google Nexus 5X ( 32GB, carbon)
The LG-built Google Nexus 5X is a fantastic pick for people who want a relatively small, lightweight smartphone with excellent value for money.
Lenovo Zuk Z1 ( dark gray)
Buy the Lenovo Zuk Z1 only if you're in need of super long battery life and don't care about camera quality. Otherwise, there are more well-rounded options available.
