Google Nexus 6

Sporting an expansive 5.96-inch display, the Nexus 6 is great for a dad who likes things big. But this phone isn't just all brawn -- it has impressive brains too: it features the latest OS updates from Google, a Snapdragon 805 processor and a 13-megapixel camera.

Apple iPhone 6 Plus

With its premium design, smooth performance, and long-lasting battery, the iPhone 6 Plus makes an excellent device to gift -- especially if Pop is already on the iOS ecosystem.

HTC One M9

For the father who is all-business, the One M9 is a polished mobile machine. This phone isn't just serious-looking -- it also has some serious specs underneath its hood, including a Snapdragon 810 processor, large dual speakers, and a full-HD display.

Motorola Moto X

The Moto X doesn't have to be limited to quirky users looking for something unique. Because of its customization options, your Father's Day gift can be a touch more personal. Choose the back texture (we like the handsome leather material), pick an accent color, and write out a short engraving to show him your gratitude.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4

If Dad is partial to size, power and all the tricks, the Galaxy Note 4 is a top-of-the-line phablet. Topping off that 5.7-inch screen, excellent camera and bullish processor? A stylus for navigating, sketching and writing notes in the office or at home.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

The coolest, edgiest patriarch in town deserves the edgiest phone -- literally. The unique dual-curved screen Galaxy S6 Edge looks like a million bucks, and has the performance to make it the best Android phone there is.

Nokia Lumia 830

If your old man is the no-frills type, this Lumia 830 gets the job done. Bearing a 5-inch screen, 10-megapixel camera and Windows Phone 8.1, this Lumia will also cost you less than most other phones.
