Hello it's a 4 inch phone
None of these phones are "as good" and "as small" as the SE.

What 4inch phone has the same specs---NONE or I would buy it!

Re: OnePlus X
@Pablo - Those are some very nice phones! 

I don't regularly follow all the different handset manufacturers but this article was very enlightening.  I just replaced my (broken) S4 with an LG V10.  I liked my S4 and the V10 is more phone than what I need but it was something that had to be replaced in a timely manner.  However, I was not aware of all these offerings - and this OnePlus X is very nice indeed!  Kicking myself for so badly overpaying, for which I knew I was in the first place.

Windows Phone is better?
I'm surprised to see the Lumia in this list. I didn't expect it to be as good as an iPhone. I prefer Android and have never owned a Windows phone, but I hear they aren't as wonderful as advertised. Does anyone here use a Windows phone?

MotoG gen3 users
My wife and I both use MotoG gen3 phones. I have previously had 3 versions of the iPhone ovwer a period of several years. We find the MotoG to be entirely satisfactory with no justification to pay the steep price for Apple products. Even the latest budget model.
