The Samsung Galaxy S5 edges the Sony Xperia Z2 in screen density and processing speed but the Xperia Z2 is better in RAM, battery capacity and camera.  The Galaxy S5, in turn, offers added features like a fingerprint scanner and heart rate sensor.  Either of the Galaxy S5 or the Xperia Z2 can be declared as the best Android phone but personally, I’m choosing the Xperia Z2.

Of course, if you’re after bigger display, the LG G Pro 2’s 5.9-inch screen is obviously the biggest in this group.

How about you? Which do you think is the best smartphone?
