Flagship Smartphone Specs 2015 - OnePlus 2, Galaxy S6 edge, HTC One M9, and Nexus 6

I am not a big fan of comparing specs on things though I figured why not do one anywho. 

For those of you that do not know the OnePlus 2 just got announced last night and today we get to see the specs for the OnePlus 2. so since they claim to be a flagship killer which is kinda funny but non the less good phone. 

So here is the specifications compared to the flag ships out there. 

some of the flagship phones are galaxy s6 edge, HTC One M9, and Nexus 6.

Galaxy S6 Edge:

lets first look at the Galaxy s6 edge costs ~$730 from Amazon.com for the unlocked international version with 64 GB hard drive. 
  • Display: 5.1 inches (~71.7% screen-to-body ratio) - 1440 x 2560 pixels (~577 ppi pixel density)

  • Camera: 16 MP, 2988 x 5312 pixels, optical image stabilization
  • Battery: 2600 mAh
HTC One M9:
The HTC brand has gotten some heavy following around the one line. I have not tried out the newer one series I had the older one xl series a before the revamped the one line.  This phone comes in at ~$720 from Amazon.com
  • 5.0-inch LCD, HD 1080 x 1920, Super LCD3 capacitive touchscreen with Capacitive Multi touch panel 441PPI
  • Rear Camera: 20.7 Mega-Pixel, Automatic simultaneous video and image recording, geo-tagging, face/smile detection, HDR, panorama

  • Internal Memory: 64GB, 3GB RAM
  • Battery: 2840 mAh

Nexus 6:
The nexus line is known for its simplistic just basic android experience. This gives it a lot of compatability with other OSs like Cyangenmod which is a huge. This phone will cost you ~$550 from amazon.com 
  • Display: 5.96” 2560x1440 QHD AMOLED display (493 ppi)

  •  Internal Memory: 64GB, 3GB RAM
  • Camera: 13MP IMX 214 Image Sensor
OnePlus 2:
OnePlus is a newish chines company that made a hit phone with the oneplus one phone. which I personally use and like. It is not a perfect phone but for the price point it was the best out there. OnePlus may want you to think that it is a flagship killer but in reality its a midrange phone. The one plus 2 also hits the same price point. The OnePlus 2 will cost you around ~$330 if you can get your hands on a invite.  https://oneplus.net/2/
  • Display: 5.5" 1080p Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels), 401 PPI
  • CPU:64-bit Qualcomm© Snapdragon™ 810 processor with 1.8GHz Octa-core CPUs
  • GPU: Adreno™ 430
  • Internal Storage: 64GB, 4 GB RAM LPDDR4
  • Camera: 13 Megapixel (1.3um), Front: 5 Megapixel
though what may be different than almost every other phone on the market is they are upping the phone port to the USB C type of port. this will give the phone faster data transfer rates and more power for charging.

so all in all what do you think? will the OnePlus be able to compete with the big leage like they did with the OnePlus One?
