If we look at what’s different between these smartphones, we may not be able to easily spot a difference in the outlook of these phones. However, they differ a lot when it comes to specifications. One common thing between all these smartphones is that they came out running on Android Lollipop out of the box. These phones run on the Android Lollipop with a makeover of the CyanogenOS which is pretty close to Vanilla Android.
