    I want to buy a new smartphone (with sd card slot!) which has enough power to emulate project m on dolphin. it shouldn't cost more than 400€/450$

    Just buy a Wii or a computer. I don't think the Android emulator's good enough to reasonably play PM yet.

    You won't be able to emulate a Wii/Gamecube with decent speeds and without glitches/crashes on a smartphone.

    In that case, pretty much any flagship Android phone available will do if you don't expect decent speeds

    The Moto X and Oneplus Two is in your budget and are good flagship devices

    Like others have stated, it won't run decently.
    If you're fine with that, great, but your budget isn't going to make the cut. You're gonna need a flagship (I'd recommend the Galaxy S7) to be able to get something that's probably bearable to use.

    The nVidia X1 processor is said to handle Dolphin or at least, will have plans to be utilized to work with it in future versions. At the time of writing, very few, if any devices will be able to handle that well.

    If price is not an issue, perhaps the IPhone SE/IPhone 6s. Very strong single core performance much more superior to anything else in a mobile phone and very powerful GPU... then again, the price.. (Although IPhone SE) is around £350.

    and it will probably run like shit. I'll admit, apple optimize their software nicely, but I don't think the hardware is good enough to run an emulator like dolphin
