The M9 display was not improved from its predecessor, the HTC M8 which was highly rated. The lack of update In this essential part of the phone has caused a lot of negative reviews and user disappointments.
As usual, HTC did not disappoint with the camera, it is packed with a 20.7-megapixel camera which has a very good performance in most conditions according to Tech Radar.
The LG G4 features eye-catching orange leather back which has some users and critics bewildered, According to Tech Radar, “The leather is too thinly stretched over the back of the phone to be considered premium…”

And the Winner is…
