If you are looking to buy a new Android phone here are the five best Android phones in the market today. The distinct advantage of the Android over its nemesis from Apple is that you have so many choices. From high end HTC, Sony and Samsung to “we can’t even remember the name” cheap but still serviceable smartphones. More and more manufacturers are releasing smartphones with the oh so hot Android OS. The downside is having too many choices often makes choosing a bit of a dilemma. Its hard to make up your mind with so many sleek looking smartphones, to make this task easier for you we have listed the top 5 choices based on looks, performance and price.
5. Sony Xperia Z2
Sony, in our opinion has made a bit of a comeback in 2014 with the Xperia Z2. The Z2 has received and 8.8/10 rating from CNET and with good reason too. Z2′s 5.2” Full HD TRILUMINOS™ display is a big improvement from its predecessor Z1. The overall design is a little on the chunky side but seriously it adds more to the phone’s appeal. The sturdy look makes the Z2 robust looking and mocks the lightweight plasticky design of its competitors. Armed with a 3200 mAH battery pack, you can get up to 2 days on this smartphone. Good specs and processing speed an overall well rounded device, this smartphone is a keeper. It comes in at number 5 on the list of best android phones because we feel that the price to value ratio is not up to par. You can get cheaper phones with the same performance.
A pleasant surprise from a newbie in the smartphone race. OnePlus’s One has received a lot of good reviews and we say yes to that. Its biggest surprise is located at the price tag, at a little over $300 this smartphone delivers everything (maybe more) that $600 phone delivers. Added perks are a 5.5 display screen, a 2.5 GHz quad core processor and a 3GB RAM, good specs that can easily compete with other more expensive smartphones. We ranked it at 4 because its give very good value for your money and the only downside is that right now its pretty hard to get one due to the limited production rate of the manufacturer.
3. LG G3
The distinct advantage of this phone is that at 1440 x 2560 it has the highest resolution in the market today, display that’s as sharp as a needle is always welcome when it comes to smartphones. The G3 has received a lot of positive reviews about its 13MP main camera and 2.5 MP front camera, it works pretty good even on low light. Priced much lower than its competitor this smartphone gives you a good value for your money hence it deserves to be in the top 3 slot.
2. Samsung Galaxy S5
Without saying much, we know you know that the Galaxy S5 is a great smartphone that will give you good value for your money. The S5 is iPhone6′s nemesis, matching and at some points even exceeding iPhone’s features and performance. With the rolling out of Android 4.4.4 Kitkat just around the bend Apple must feel a little uneasy about the release of iPhone 6. The S5 can easily be the number one phone but it only made it to number 2 because of the plastic casing, Samsung should really think about putting metal trim or metal back casing for a more elegant look.
1. HTC One M8
There’s not awhile lot that you won’t love about the HTC One M8. Its so far ahead in the game that the only other Android you can compare it to is another HTC phone the older One E8. What HTC did was get this great phone, scrutinize every feature and made it as close to perfect as it can get. Duo camera that works like a dream, a chassis that’s 90% metal and looks every inch the high-end phone that it is, which makes you wonder why its cheaper by a little over $300 than the One E8. Yes, you read right it’s better and it’s cheaper. Its called the One for a very good reason. Its our top choice because it’s easily the best looking phone in the market today. Top that with excellent software and specs and you’ve got a phone that you will be willing to pay top dollar for.
