    Where is the oneplusone

  • frig200 says:

    Problem is that you don’t get GPE’s outside of the US which really sucks :( . You can’t even buy the one plus one. So really it’s the nexus 5 or Moto
    G, your pick :D 

  • Roger Fingas says:

    So…Nexus 5. Or the OnePlus One, if you’re lucky enough to get an invite.

  • Liam Cochran says:

    The Moto G does have LTE now.

  • Jake Alimov says:

    I thought one plus one will be number 1 even though it’s not available but
    it’s coming out this June to public

    Just bought a Verizon moto g for 50 bucks I’m not using it as a phone just
    a cool toy/mp3 to have around

  • Ahmed Gilo says:

  • Orlando Sablon says:

    HTC $699

  • palmatoro says:

    What about the oneplus one!

  • TheTrueHappy says:

    The moto g has an lte version doesn’t it? And the HTC one m8 camera kinda
    sucks, I think out of everything on this list, the nexus 5 should’ve still
    been number 1. It has a good camera, and they both have nice unibody
    designs, and 1080p screens. The only advantage of the M8 is probably the
    front facing speakers, but is that worth more than double the price?

  • SkatSkatSkater says:

    @Karan Kaushal Try getting one.

  • Allex Radu says:

    Where the hell is Galaxy Note 3, this is relatively affordable (as it now)
    and has specs with kick the shit out of the Motorola phone.

    There is a 4G LTE variant of the Moto G however it only comes in North
    American at the moment, only support 4G LTE Bands 2, 4, 5, 17 (1900, 1700,
    850, 700 MHz) but weirdly, it also supports all 5 mainstream bands for 3G
    UMTS/HSPA+ (850, 900, 1700, 1900, 2100 MHz) wheres the 3G only US GSM Moto
    G only support 850, 1700, 1900 MHz and the Global GSM model only
    support 850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz. However, do you really need LTE, HSPA+
    Also, as a bonus, the Moto 4G has expandable storage upto 32GB. Anyway, if
    I was buying an unlocked phone for travelling overseas with, I would
    probably go with either a Moto G vairant or the Moto E due to their low
    cost, epecially if it will only get used a few weeks out of the year, sure
    that camera’s mediocre at best but if will probably be fine for those
    social media pics of strange food and lounging by the pool and your
    vacation photos really deserve better than a smarphone camera. However, if
    shopping for a daily driver, the Nexus takes first prize in my opinion.
    Yes, the M8 looks better, has expandable storage and all those duo camera
    features but the 32GB Nexus is only $400, add in a wireless HDD and you’ve
    got upto 2TB of extra storage for media.

    +CNET The HTC One M8 only has an 8mp camera though ? Seems a little
    light-on for a flagship phone, no??

    In addition the XperiaZ2 has better specs

  • Nathaniel12345678910 says:

    This video is fucked up! There are so much better unlocked android phones
    out there

  • Rick Galindo says:

    The Xperia Z2 is only $653 on ebay

  • Rayyan Memon says:

    You save when you go unlocked.

  • Faethe says:

    I think it’s odd to call the Nexus 5 camera bad and the M8 camera good. I
    would call the N5 camera average and the M8 camera awful. It doesn’t even
    produce colors properly.

    Add in that the n5 has optical stabilization whereas the M8 doesn’t (some
    of you will attempt to say that it does, but it doesn’t as is apparent on
    any video taken with the M8. If it does have it, it doesn’t work) and your
    judgment gets even weirder.
