After spending few hours more than expecting on comparing specs of phones I was considering, I've started thinking few of things I've could help solve or speed up someone else's doubts ^.^
So, if you are reluctant to make choices based on cometics, here's my spreadsheet and steps:

1) went to
made this choices:
(changed them before finishing spreadsheet)
2) went to
choose phones to compare:
3) copied data, fixed rows misalignment
4) in sheet 2 I've changed text values to more comparable, deleted some unrelevant rows
5) in sheet 3 deleted everything except values to compare, replaced some words/text
6) in sheet 4 put lookup->match values based on order/values of your criteria
7) make proper formulas to get info how big is the difference between models inside some criteria
8) get info what criteria takes how much of importance in result
9) compare that info in sheet 5, and scale function values to get proper order of criterias
10) 'volies', you have numbers to make a choice of your choice, just compare order index and price at you can get the phone xD

It is far from perfect, because criterias are ordered, but probably not perfectly compared, and there is much of induction, yet, a believe there is no benefit in checking it all deductively

If you didn't see some benefit in it, you probably laughed while reading it
