    This should probably be moved to either phone wars or off topic. Hopefully a mod can do that.

    I'll actually opt for Oppo, their phones are quite nice.

    I've never heard of them. What countries and carriers have their devices?

    Have a look at this:
    N1 - OPPO

    They are from China, but I'm not sure about their presence in US. In my country, they started to become popular (more than LG) since last year. Though a China phone, Oppo phones cannot be considered cheap. Unlike Xiaomi, Oppo actually HAS innovation.

    Although I do not care for the fact it would not survive a 14 story fall, the LG G3 was (is) a very impressive device. I didn't think I'd get used to the power/volume buttons on the back but after a couple of days it felt like the most natural thing. Lots of horsepower, a gorgeous display and a very fast camera.

    I can think of many OEMs that have brought innovation to the table, and OEMs that have later gone onto expanding that functionality.

    HTC from what I know was the first OEM to implement slow-mo and fast HD(60 FPS) capture into it's phones, Apple later expanded on that adding slow-mo capabilities of upto 120 and 240 FPS. HTC also brought with it the Ultrapixel concept, the Boomsound speakers and was one of the first OEMs to venture into the f2.0 apertures in phones. Also HTC was one of the first OEMs to add the capability to take still while recording a video and while playing it back.

    Apple has also made some substantial innovations, the iPhone for one, it is possibly the innovation that lead to the creation of Android and Windows Phone(*possibly*) on touchscreen devices. Also Apple's move to 300+ PPI was a great addition which OEMs later followed. People also credit Apple with the whole pinching and zooming gestures. Also TouchID was the first successful implementation of a touchscreen sensor on a mobile, it worked great.

    Then comes Motorola/Google bringing with it the "always on" Ok Google listening and the Active Display.

    Nokia set a new standard by introducing a 41 MP cameraphone that had manual controls similar to a DSLR.

    Oppo was one of the first OEMs to lead the change towards 1080p and 2K displays, it also came out with the rotatable camera, 32s shutter speed for mobile and now they are using highly durable aluminium in their new phones(the same type of aluminium used in planes).

    Samsung introduced a lot of things, but one of the most useful was phase detection autofocus into mobiles.

    That's all I can think of, for now.

    the most innovative oem is probably Nokia,they might be called slow for basic stuff but they are like scientists such as newton who were forgetful about day to day stuff etc,but in their work and progress ,they were advanced
    nokia has always been slow but their products are very well made,well tested etc
    we dont hear of nokias exploding etc,we hear of them saving lives by taking a bullet sometimes :D :P
    To me,OEMs like samsung and apple are in a constant race to get features before the other,but how many can actually be used in day to day life,how come they never make it to existing handsets?
    iphone 4 users never got siri,even though siri was a separate app and company before apple bought them,so its not hardware
    today we see the L520 getting cortana ,bluetooth 4.0 etc
    innovation is when existing products get new features as well imho and nokia/ms has gotten that right

    especially with the glance screen and their amazing cameras which imho remain unmatched till date atleast to that level of quality and perfection and price

    Well to be specific to manufacturing smartphones, Nokia has always a lead over the other companies. I know that some Nokia phones have issues, but compared to other companies they are nothing. From the day I started using my first phone, I've noticed that all the other phones get problems a hell lot more than Nokia phones do. Yes, people can complain all about WP, but as far as hardware, built quality is concerned, Nokia has always been very good. So I'll say Nokia is the best manufacturer for phones.

    Not any one in particular... Every OEM has their own strengths.

    Samsung makes the best displays, bar none. They're also usually the first to jump on board the newest hardware.
    Nokia makes the best camera systems for phones, of course.
    HTC comes up with some really unique designs, plus their recent phones have some pretty great sound quality.

    Overall, though, I think Samsung leads in terms of new inventions in hardware (like die shrinks for RAMs and storage, new gen AMOLEDs, etc). I just wish their phones weren't so damn ugly to look at.

    Samsung uses AMOLED displays on many of it's devices, if I'm not wrong. AMOLED usually has punchier colors(if that's the word). Whether you like that or not, is up to you.

    But it seems that experts like the 2K screen of their latest flagship quite a bit.

    Talking on the topic of Samsung and innovation however, the Galaxy Note Edge is really innovative IMO. :3

    But also quite expensive(and in limited quantities).

    The correct term is "saturated colors". Some would say AMOLED screens tend to be oversaturated. However, using the color profile settings on any Lumia device you can recalibrate that to whatever you want. At least on Lumia devices that is now a non-issue.

    Far more important than the color issue is the contrast issue. AMOLED displays have infinite contrast, and that is what truly distinguishes them from LCDs.

    My eyes are very sensitive to contrast and dark color gradients. The LCD screen on my L830 is, for me, one of its weak spots, but most don't even notice what I find distracting.

    I'm really glad Samsung invested in AMOLED technology.

    I don't know who the most innovative is, but I'd say Apple is the least innovative. Out of all the big players Apple has by far the smallest research budget, and in my book purchasing other companies and marketing their inventions isn't innovation.

    From what I observed, Apple isn't a company that's great in innovation. What they excel in however, is the implementation of certain features or the improvement of those features.

    Although most of the features are not invented by Apple, a lot of features are known to the majority because of Apple. A bit unfair to the pioneers, but that's how it is.

    Haha yeah Apple isn't one of the most "innovative" of companies, but it does pretty well in improving features that already exist.

    I honestly don't like AMOLED displays a whole lot, especially because of the screen "burn in" issue that people often talk about on the internet.

    But AMOLED displays really shine in battery life when it comes to using darker backgrounds.
