    I live in Brazil and the prices of the iPhone are really really high. I want a big screen phone, so I need the iPhone Plus, and since it does not have memory card slot, i need, at least the 64Gb version. I will list the prices of a few flagship smartphones here, in reais (R$) and dollars (US$) for comparison:

    iPhone 6 Plus 64Gb
    R$ 3.999,00
    US$ 1.599,60

    Galaxy Note 4
    R$ 2.899,00
    US$ 1.159,60

    Moto Maxx (Droid Turbo here in Brazil)
    R$ 2.199,00
    US$ 879,60

    LG G3
    R$ 2.099,00
    US$ 839,60

    Moto X
    R$ 1.500,00
    US$ 600,00

    These are the official prices. I can find the LG G3 costing R$ 1,500,00, US$ 600,00. and the Note 4 costing 2.550,00, US$ 1020,00.

    I really like the iPhone, I have an iPhone 4 and need to upgrade. I own a MacBook Pro, Time Capsule and Apple TV. My wife has an iPhone 5, and I’d really like to stay in the Apple “ecosystem”.

    Dou you people think the 6 Plus is worth the price here in Brazil? I can buy 2 LG G3 e still keep U$ 399,00 in my pocket?
    I’d really like to hear some opinions.

    The only phone in your list that has the amount of storage listed, along with its price, is the iPhone 6 Plus. For example, I had no idea about any of the other phones in that list, so I went to Motorola's page and looked up the specs for the Moto X. That phone does not come in a 64GB model. 16GB and 32GB only. That was enough for me to come back here and say this:

    My advice - Compare phone prices of those that meet your stated storage requirements. Your list, in its current form, is rather useless to be used to make a real, informed decision.

    If you consider a phone that has less built-in storage, but a slot to add something like an SDHC card or something like that, then find a card that gives you the storage that you want, and then add its price to the cost of that phone, and do your comparison based on that.

    Well pointed. I can buy a 64gb class 10 micro SD card for R$ 75,00 or US$ 30,00. It's cheap, and I would add 64gb to note 4, G3 and moto X. Droid Turbo had no slot, but comes with 64gb.

    Also look at the Nexus 6. It's a great phone and a more pure Android experience compared to the other models you listed.
