We know it sounds like the Billboard Top 100 list, but for tech enthusiasts, this one’s sure to be more eye-catching and interesting. With so many new smartphones flooding the market every month, we figured it would be hard for you to stay updated, so we consolidated a list of what we think are the 20 best smartphones out there as on date:
Apple iPhone 4S: We’re putting this in the list since it was our very first Siri experience and we know that this phone did find a lot of takers. But we wish it was a bit more affordable, at least now.
Huawai Ascend G330: This was a game-changer by Huawei, a company previously known for making cheap technology. It’s powerful, big on size, has a good screen, and a very pocket-friendly price tag.
Samsung Ativ S: This phone’s yet to make a splash in the market, but we assure you that if you’re looking for a Windows Phone 8 based smartphone, this one’s a pretty good option. It’s sleek looks are eye catching and of course we love it for its microSD card slot too.
Motorola Razr HD: We loved Motorola’s Razr series of mobiles phones back in the day, and this one’s a lovely take on it. It’s sharp, comes with an HDMI port, a good screen, an amazing battery life and is also quite affordable.
Sony Xperia S: The Xperia S was among the better phones of 2012 – and not just because of its full HD display, its 12 MP rear camera, or its dual core processor. It comes with a bunch of preloaded apps to make our lives so much simpler.
Motorola Razr i: Yet another of Motorola’s Razr series, we like the Razr I for its edge to edge AMOLED display, funky design, fast internet connectivity, and expandable storage.
Samsung Galaxy S2: Samsung’s former flagship smartphone looks real good, runs on Android 4.0 ICS, has a dual-core processor, HD recording capabilities and a lovely Super AMOLED screen.
Sony Xperia T: We love its dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and 4.6-inch screen powered by Sony’s BRAVIA technology, its Android 4.0 ICS OS and the gorgeous 13 MP camera.
HTC One X+: The One X+ with its Android 4.1 update and Sense 4+ UI overlay makes for a smooth, slick Android smartphone. We love its red and black body and its 64 GB of internal storage space too!
BlackBerry Z10: BlackBerry’s reinvented experience on the Z10 makes it a lot more appealing than it has ever been. We love the new BlackBerry Balance feature, the many camera functions, Adobe Flash support and Peek function.
LG Optimus 4X HD: This study phone is perfect for those who love watching tons of videos on their phones, it boasts of great specs and a powerful battery, making it an interesting alternative to the HTC One X+ and the Samsung Galaxy S3.
Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini: The more affordable little brother of the Galaxy S3 comes with S Beam, NFC, a Super AMOLED screen, and 1 GB of RAM – not too miniature in specs!
HTC Desire C: We love its curved edges that give it a cute look, and of course its intuitive interface which makes it a very interesting pick in the reasonably priced range of smartphones.
HTC One S: We love that it comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, has a lovely high-res display and a very interesting body. Of course, its affordable price tag is just as alluring as its many features too.
Nokia Lumia 920: Nokia’s flagship Windows Phone 8 based smartphone features in the list for its colorful body, amazingly powerful 8 MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics, its 4.5-inch display with ClearBlack technology, and so many more fantastic features.
Apple iPhone 5: Apple’s latest iPhone comes with a 4-inch screen, an 8 MP rear camera and many improved features. We can’t help but love whatever Apple brings out and the iPhone 5 is no exception.
LG Optimus G Pro: LG’s flagship smartphone for 2013 scores high on our list for its 5.5-inch full HD screen, quad-core processor and 13 MP camera, putting it right there with the other premium smartphones in the market.
Sony Xperia Z: We love the Xperia Z, not just for its 5-inch full HD screen, quad-core processor or its 13 MP camera with the Exmos RS sensor, but also because Sony has managed to put all this into a dust and water resistant package!
HTC One: It was love at first sight with the HTC One for its all aluminum sleek body, its Ultrapixels camera and its Android Jelly Bean experience with an improved overlay of the Sense S.0 UI.
Samsung Galaxy S4: Samsung’s flagship features right on top because of its many camera features, eye tracking, and floating touch capabilities on its 5-inch full HD screen powered by quad-core or octo-core processors.
