The One M8 and Z2 both require some in depth testing to see if their cameras justify the hype.
I used the Z1 and - very low-light aside, its camera didn't impress me. In some conditions, it was downright disappointing (video and very bright conditions). I also didn't like the cold slippery slabness of its casing. Looks good on a table. Doesn't feel good in the hand.

The One M8 ditched OIS for the dual lens setup... I'd like to see if that trade-off was worthwhile.
I'm not interested in the SGS5. I'm tired of Samsung. Nobody, in my bitter opinion, should reward them for churning out piffle after piffle.... The SGS5 may well be good. But again, I don't care. For anyone new to smartphones this opinion is, of course, irrelevant.

As to "best" or "better"? That doesn't exist. Just imagine a prospective buyer who doesn't care much about photography beyond a drunken selfie... For him/her the selection process works differently. We all make individual choices - even those most afflicted by commercials and PR bullsh*t.
