The display is the most power-hungry hardware on your Android smartphone. Most smartphones battery life efficiency can be determined by measuring the SOT(screen-on-time). But is it possible to do this in a controlled environment?
HTC One M9 has one big flaw, that its auto-focus does not work correctly. 5 out of 10 shots taken with the M9 results in over-exposed photos and depending on where you focus, the exposure changes constantly. This is worse than the HTC One M7 and M8. Since this is a matter of the camera’s auto focus not doing job correctly, it should be fixed with a camera firmware update by HTC in the future.

The Galaxy S6 Edge is twin brother of the regular S6 with a twist, that it was two curved edges on the screen. CPU, camera, software, and pretty much everything else but the screen is identical on the S6 Edge compared to the S6. The S6 Edge retails $100 more than the regular S6 and really, is it worth the extra $100?
