A number of top-end smartphones have been announced this year, including the ASUS ZenFone 2 (ZE551ML), Sony Xperia Z3+ and the LG G4.

Here is the comparison of these smartphones:

The LG G4 has the best display out of these three handsets as it sports a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display with a 2560 by 1440 pixel resolution and 538 ppi.


The ZenFone 2 (ZE551ML) runs on an Intel Atom quad-core processor clocked at 2 GHz.

The octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor clocked at 2 GHz powers the Xperia Z3+, which makes the handset one of the fastest smartphones available on the market.

"This advanced 64-bit Octa-core processor gives anything up to 50 percent more speed than previous processors," says Sony on its website.

The LG G4 houses a hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor clocked at 1.8 GHz
