    HTC M9+ looks better than the m9. Much rather have the fingerprint scanner on the front of the device and I like how the black htc bar is smaller. Too bad it will only be available in China.

    As far as the s6 plus, why....just why when they have the note?

    They should have made it look different from a Samsung device...

    agree.

    Like the look but to be honest the home button look is a little played out between Apple and Samsung. What makes it worse is that button only serves the purpose of being a fingerprint scanner. Wonder if we have the tech where the device can read your fingerprint by pressing the screen.

    Yes, Samsung and Apple both have patents on in-screen scanners and Samsung went even further by showing a proof of concept device not so long ago.

    Apple would benefit the most by ditching their round home button because it causes their phones to be humongous in relation to usable screen real estate vs overall phone size.
