I don't believe in a best phone
There is a reason why we have flagships from different legions.
Everyone is different and has different wants and usages.
We have that dude that likes to do deep tinkering by writing up code and seeing it work on the phone or installing different schiit on it.
We have Facebook Girl
We have uber buff guy that likes to take buff pics and tweet them
Yup, I agree. For me, sammy phones are the best choice. For those 3 scenarios, I'd recommend the N4 to the first, and iPhone to the other 2 tbh.
