The Android family has grown ever so slightly by 2 newer devices.
- 5" @ 1080p
- 2.3GHz x4 Snapdragon 801 w/ 2GB RAM
- 16GB + microSD
- 13MP / 5MP
- Android 4.4
- 2,600 mAh
It also comes in grey, white or red. As much as I loved the idea of the 4UP camera (not as crazy about the duo feature), it made sense to make it 13MP as that's something that buyers 'know'.
The plastic casing looks to save about $200 on the phone (it's ~$447USD, vs $700)
The next up is the Sony Xperia T3. After playing with the Z Ultra and the Z2, I'm really admiring some of the stuff Sony's been doing (even if it's seems to be in utter silence). So they've also released a 'not so flagship' device too.
- 5.3" @ 720p
- 1.4GHz x4 w/ 1GB RAM
- 8GB storage + microSD
- 8MP / 1.1MP
Bigger than the Z2, but definitely missing many of its other features (including the water proofing).
Both phones are a nice take on each's current flagship, but I think we're starting to see folks a little taken back by some of the high prices of flagship devices (especially when the subsidized price is high as well).
