Samsung Galaxy S6 ( 32GB, white pearl)
Worldly looks and top-notch specs make the impressive, metal Samsung Galaxy S6 the Android phone to beat for 2015.
Apple iPhone 6 Plus ( 16GB, space gray)
The iPhone 6 Plus is an outstanding choice for those with big budgets and big pockets, but power users seeking even more flexibility should audition the Galaxy Note 4 as well.
Apple iPhone 6S
This product has not yet been reviewed.
If Apple follows its usual script, we'll be getting new iPhones in September. Here's what to expect.
Pricing not available
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 ( charcoal black)
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will thrill anyone who loves a fast phone with a large screen, but it's best for compulsive scribblers willing to pay a lot for its winning stylus.
Samsung Galaxy S5
Subtly improved and smartly refined, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is a superior superphone that hits every mark but the sharpest design.
LG G3 ( Metallic Black)
Possessing the right blend of features and design, the G3 finally gives LG the right phone with which to challenge Korean rival Samsung.
Google Nexus 6 ( 32GB)
Although the Nexus 6 trails the slimmer Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in processor performance and native productivity features, it's still the most powerful pure Android handset available and the largest Nexus yet.
Kyocera DuraXV ( with Camera)
Durable and water resistant, the Kyocera DuraXV is one of the most capable feature phones available.
Huawei Honor 6 Plus
With its good screen, strong processor and solid camera, the Honor 6 Plus is well-equipped for most all the social-networking fun you could want and doesn't ask for much cash in return. It's a shame about its clunky, outdated software, though, which does somewhat take the shine off.
Pricing not available
Motorola Droid Turbo ( 64GB, black ballistic nylon)
Even with its hefty design, the Motorola Droid Turbo's robust battery, powerful processor and vivid display put it on the short list for Verizon customers.
Samsung Galaxy Avant
Its screen and camera disappoint, but Samsung's Galaxy Avant is one of T-Mobile's better options at this price.
Sony XPERIA Z3 ( black)
The Sony Xperia Z3 is Sony's most formidable to date with a formidable display and promising features that easily give Android competition from HTC, LG and Samsung a run for their money.
Though the ZTE ZMax has some design flaws, they're minor enough to overlook if you want an incredibly inexpensive phablet off-contract.
HTC Desire 510 ( black)
The HTC Desire 510 doesn't have the specs to excite committed tech fans, but it handles the basics well, has 4G LTE for superfast data speeds, and it doesn't cost the earth.
LG Watch Urbane
The LG Watch Urbane is the best-looking Android Wear smartwatch and adds Wi-Fi-to-phone connectivity, but it doesn't offer all that much more than previous Android Wear watch models.
If you're willing to trade screen size for a superior physical keyboard, the BlackBerry Classic is a fantastic productivity phone for old-school QWERTY junkies.
Though it doesn't have LTE and takes unimpressive photos, the LG Optimus L90 remains a worthy midrange contender that you should look at if you're on a budget.
Sony Xperia Z3v ( white)
Sony's variant on the Xperia Z3 is nearly the same excellent overall phone on Verizon, albeit with a slightly dated external design.
Samsung Galaxy S 5 Active ( AT&T, Ruby Red)
Though it's only marginally more durable than the original Galaxy S5, the Galaxy S5 Active's physical buttons and high-end features keep it in Samsung's hit parade.
Priced at $50, the LG Optimus L70 is one of the best 4G Android handsets on any prepaid network.
