If you want a big Android phone consider the Nexus 6—at almost 6″ it’s an absolutely massive phablet. If, on the other hand, you’re looking for a smaller Android phone that fits nicely in your pocket consider the HTC One M9 or the Galaxy S6 Edge—both feature screens that are almost an entire inch smaller than the Nexus 6. If you want a really nice sharp and bright screen, consider the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge or the LG G4, both of which Quad HD displays.
