    Samsung Galaxy A8!!! Not literally a 6 incher but it comes close and the best of all it can go toe to toe with most of flagship phones listed here :)

    Puro overpriced crap.

  4. Nette says:

    What about the Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro? Although obsolete, it has 6 in thin bezel screen with 3GB RAM, Snapdragon 801, 2k resolution screen, 4000mAh battery and with Android Lollipop upgrade.

  5. Christian says:

    The Sony Xperia Z Ultra (it has a 6.44″ full HD screen). The Snapdragon 800/Adreno 330/2GB RAM trio still packs a solid punch. My unit currently runs on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and I’d say this phablet is definitely a beast, considering it’s a nearly 3-year old device (released in June 2013). And don’t forget that it’s crazy slim at 6.5mm, and also IP68-Certified.
