I have a lot of phones. To name a few, I’ve got ALL the iPhones except the “six”. After I met Android – I gave up on it… So besides iPhones – I have a Google LG Nexus 4, a Samsung Galaxy S3 and S4 – I HAD a Galaxy S6 but returned it because it kept crashing on me (especially the web browser), an HTC One M7, a MotoX 2013 and 2014, a OnePlus One — and I can’t remember the other ones at this very moment. But I have a lot of phones. The TWO that I KEEP switching back and forth from are the MotoX 2014 and OnePlus One.
Why? The MotoX is the most convenient phone to me. I shake it and take a picture – THAT quickly. Other phones have slightly better cameras but if I’m not quick enough to get the shot – that doesn’t matter much. Another nice feature is how it can tell when you’re driving and read out text messages sent to you and allow you to respond with only your voice – which is great. There are a few other unique MotoX features but those two are my favorite. Besides that – the battery life is “good” and everything works. I’m a power-user so having a device that doesn’t start acting funny when I add all the apps I want onto it – is crucial.
The OnePlus One is an amazing device. The best pictures I’ve ever taken with a smartphone camera have been with the OnePlus One. I hear the Samsung Galaxy S6 has a better camera but I couldn’t stand it long enough to do a comparison. The OnePlus One has the best battery life I’ve ever experienced in a smartphone device. It lasts me all day plus some – and I’m an aggressive user. I didn’t think I would be happy with the 5.5″ screen but the device is thin and has nice material on the back (not slippery like ice (Galaxy S6)) so it’s comfortable in my hand. I’ve come to the conclusion that a 5.5 inch screen is perfect for me and GREAT to watch videos on.
I’ll be looking very closely at the Nexus 5 2015 — I’ll definitely be buying a MotoX 2015 as well as a OnePlus Two – which you need an invitation to buy. HOWEVER — you can buy one right now – right here: 16gb OnePlus Two or 64gb OnePlus Two.
I’d like to note that if you’re not a power user and want a phone that’ll take great pictures, opens instantly with fingerprint scan and feels amazing in your hand – do go for that Samsung Galaxy S6. It is a SOLID feeling phone. The build quality is EXCELLENT and the screen is AMAZING. If email, Facebook and instant messaging are all you need – it’s a great device.
