    I recommend none of the above. Sony Xperia Z2 is my current flavour of choice.

    Completely waterproof (unlike the others)...this is a big thing if you slip and drop it in the bath or sink etc.
    Decent camera
    Limited bloatware (very very little compared to Samsung and HTC, not to mention Apples whole deal!), plus integration with PSN (if you use it).
    Great battery life. I accidentally left on Injustice: Gods Among Us all day on my phone whilst at work (no sound, but screen locked, game running when unlocked), and still had 50% battery left, on my galaxy note, I couldn't get that sort of battery life.
    Very very good screen, I have been able to watch 4K videos without issue.
    Great Sony support, literally best I have had for a phone.
    Also depending on who you get it with, free spotify premium for the life of your contract (I got mine with O2 directly)

    Downside - no removeable battery (but this is taken into account because of the phone being waterproof).

    I have an M8 - and while the screen size was a little daunting at first, you do get used to it.

    The whole thing just feels so... zoom, I'd definitely recommend one.

    Hey, i got my HTC One M8 this weekend and i'm pretty pleased with it (ok so if you follow me on twitter, this weekend was mostly a lot of me shouting HOW DO I ANDROID?!).

    Tis pretty speedy and i'm already used to the size difference. I'm currently seeing how long the battery lasts as i'm a very heavy user....some people may say i have a bit of a problem.

    Anyone wanna buy an iPhone?

    I don't understand why anyone would pay £500+ on a smart phone!!

    I'll be getting this when its released next month. Drop in a 32gb MicroSD card and it does everything a phone should do

    Got the Nexus 5 which is a fantastic phone. Only phone that would tempt me away would be the M8, although the Nexus 5 is way cheaper.

    That's the Moto G, it doesn't have an SD Card slot. You sure you didn't mean a different model as that model has been out for ages.

    Also, you can get the 8GB model for £99 from Tesco and an unlock code from ebay for £2.04.

    M8. I got mine a week ago and love it. And every online comparison I've seen has fallen heavily to the HTC One.

    The S5 is a long way from a bad phone, but if you're shelling out so much you may as well get the better option.

    This is the new version which has 4g and an sd card slot.

    I wouldn't use the stock launcher on either. Just grab the Google Now Launcher apk. Nexus simplicity, M8/S5 build quality.

    Better yet, chuck Cyanogenmod 11 on instead!

    I've got an S4 with Cyanogenmod - ability to replace the battery was a dealbreaker for me.
