Top 10 Best Smartphones 2013

The smartphone market is booming everyday. The choice to purchase which phone is becoming more
and more complex too. The question is, what would you like to have in your next smartphone and what you are going to trade-off to get that is a once personal decision or opinion. But, here we have sorted a list of Top 10 Best Smartphones one should have a look before going to make a final decision on their next smartphone.

Here, we go with Top 10 Best Smartphones-

10. Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini  

Samsung Galaxy S4 mini have a vibrant screen, bright and clear enough, added to the fact it’s only 4.3-inches large, mean the S4 Mini is a lot easier to hold in the hand, and the camera is as powerful as we’d expect on a phone of this size and price point.

9. Google Nexus 4

Top of the line chipset, an excellent screen and the latest Android version – does it get better than this? Well, if you are Google, it actually does. The Nexus 4 is a proper flagship smartphone, but with a mid-market price tag.  A fast-track pass to future Android updates only comes to sweeten up an already great deal.

8. Apple iPhone 5C 

Apple iPhone 5c is a very solid smartphone – we know it well because we’ve spent a year with its previous alter ego, the iPhone 5. We didn’t find any difference between the iPhone 5c and the iPhone 5 that goes beyond the exterior. Sure the battery has grown by 70 mAh, but that’s not the kind of difference you can feel in real-life usage.  So had the iPhone 5c become the midrange smartphone that rumors tipped it to be, it would have been a real winner. However, its pricing puts it on par or well above than just about every smartphone on the market – barring its own 5s sibling – so things look a bit different.

7. Samsung Galaxy S4 

The big 5″ screen fits into a very compact body (same footprint as the Galaxy S III and slimmer), the new 1080p Super AMOLED matrix offers a significant improvement in image quality, the 13MP camera is one of the best around and, performance-wise. 

6. Apple iPhone 5S

 Apple is the screen – a big screen (4.3-4.7″, perhaps) is a must for a high-end smartphone with aspirations for multimedia consumption, gaming and productivity. The resolution could use an update too – the PPI was stunning in 2010 when the iPhone 4 was announced, not so much today. We guess we have to wait until iPhone 6 to, hopefully, get that wish granted.

5. Sony Xperia Z 

The Xperia Z is a burst of confidence and inspiration that will rally the troops and send a warning to the opposition. The Xperia Z seems to have all the best technology currently available under the hood. The Sony Xperia Z is stuff geeks’ dreams are made of, it’s designed and built to the highest standard and has raw processing power to spare. IP57-certified – on top of that – for dust and water resistance, it’s tougher than most competitors. High-end smartphones aren’t quite fit for the beach or white water rafting, but the Xperia Z won’t be at odds with your active lifestyle.

4. LG G2

LG G2 is powered by the best mobile chipset available, it has a beautiful big screen with almost no bezel to speak of, and it even runs the latest Android version. But that’s not what the LG G2 is going to be known for. No, the G2 will be remembered as one of the few devices to bring true hardware innovation for the first time in many years. While most makers just keep on pushing the number of CPU cores or go overboard with screen size, LG takes a fresh approach to how you interact with a big-screen phone in the most natural way.

3. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 

Galaxy Note 3 phablet continues the tradition of being the current generation’s Galaxy S phone on steroids – a large 5.7″ screen (in a body the size of the Note II), choice of Snapdragon 800 or Exynos 5420 chipsets, 2160p (a.k.a. UHD) video recording, USB 3.0 (a first on a pocketable device) and Samsung’s ever-growing list of software features available right out-of-the-box.

2. Sony Xperia Z1 

Sony is using the best chipset on the market, the Snapdragon 800.  The IP58 certification, which means the phone will easily go swimming with you so you can take it in the pool or wade into the sea. Water resistance is good all year round, not just summer vacation – a spilled glass can turn a $600+ gadget into a paperweight.  Sony Xperia Z1 is a reasonably powerful camcorder. It captures 1080p videos at just under 30 frames per second with a good bitrate of 17-18Mbps with stereo sound recording with a bitrate of 132 Kbps and 48 kHz audio sampling rate.

1. HTC One

Arguably one of the most exciting pieces of smartphone design in recent times, the HTC One is also properly powered and flaunts a screen that should please even the most demanding eyes. It also brings an overdue redesign of the Sense UI and a new camera that takes a completely new approach to mobile photography.
