  • LionStone

    This list is a joke… All of these are on lollipop… Hands down the best mid range device which also shames many flagships is HTC ONE A9. It is the only one with the latest software. It’s practically a Nexus…but better imo.

    • Miodrag Cutura

      And it it costs 4-5 times more than let’s say Xiaomi Mi 4i, at least in some european countries…

      • LionStone

        Ya but that’s garbage, with outdated software, you get what you pay for

        • Miodrag Cutura

          And yet again, Xiaomi is finishing its testing of Marshmallow for its recent phones…
