Design
The LG G4 has a largest screen among all of them at 5.5 inch at qHD resolution. Besides it is comparatively lightweight at 155 grams in comparison with its screen.  HTC One M9 has a 5 inch screen and weighs on heavier side at 157 grams. The iPhone 6 is lightest of them at 129 grams, but has a modest 4.7 inch screen.  Galaxy S6 is the best balanced one with a 5.1 inch screen and a weight of 129 grams.  All of them carry screen protection. The iPhone 6 is made of metal body and the S6 has a combination of metal and glass. G4 goes most premium looking with hand crafted leather design. HTC One M9 has metal designs. Look wise,  Galaxy S6 is  attractive of the lot.

Display
As said before, LG G4 has the biggest screen of them all. It has the Quantum IPS display being the first device to employ the technology. Galaxy S6 has the same Q HD display as on G4. The iPhone 6 has the smallest with 1334x750 Retina display and 4.7 inch. Each of them have their own strengths and weaknesses. HTC One M9 has poor viewing angles while iPhone 6 has lower resolution. S6 carries great screen ever, while G4 boasts of Quantum technology.

Camera
In camera department HTC One M9 is the best one with 20.7 MP camera, however in terms of quality of snaps taken iPhone has better camera. The 16 MP camera on G4 has improved image stabilisation. The G4 camera boasts of better settings. It also features a manual mode and the ability to save RAW format images. However, Galaxy S6 snaps provide sharp images with rich color accuracy. It has some great camera features like faster shutter and better autofocus. HTC One M9 comes with Split Capture mode that helps you take snaps simultaneously with rear and front cameras. The 8 MP camera on iPhone gives some great color reproduction. In the camera department, it would be the battle between Galaxy S6 and G4.

Hardware and performance
All three Androids have almost similar processors with G4 offering a clock speed of 1.8 GHz. G4 and HTC M9 employ Snapdragon 808 and 810 quadcore processors respectively, while Samsung has used the in house Exynos octacore processor. With respect to storage, the G4 excels with its 32 GB internal memory and the expandable memory slot supporting upto 128 GB. Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6 offer no expandable memory slot. HTC M9 has 32 GB internal memory with support for expandable memory. All the three models except iPhone 6 have 3 GB of RAM while iPhone has just 1 GB. But it does not make any difference in iOS kind of things.

My View
Galaxy S6 has a dominating presence with its all round performance and Hardware. The iPhone like design on Galaxy S6 has made it one of the sought after devices. While LG has its uniqueness in the powerful camera features and the newly launched Quantum display. Lastly the pricing can also be deciding factor. With iPhone 6 with 16 GB memory priced at Rs. 53000 and a 32 GB Galaxy S6 at Rs. 50000, LG may be able to garner some sales figures with its better placement in terms of pricing.
