There are few things more genuinely interesting than the smartphone technology race. This is partly down to the rapid speed of innovative progression we’ve made through it over the past few years, and partly due to the fact that we do not yet know where smartphone technology will lead us within the next few years. What we do know is that there is a range of fantastic smartphones out in the market at the moment. Here are the best latest phones in 2013.
For the Camera-person: HTC Droid
Ever since the days of the J-SH04 (the first ever commercial camera phone) there has long been an intense race to improve the relationship between camera and mobile phone technology. This has led to higher and higher definition camera phones, and video phones with increasing levels of resolution and definition too.
Right now for those mainly looking for a top camera phone, there are few – if any – more suitable smartphones than the HTC Droid DNA. The Droid DNA’s 2-megapixel front-facing camera is capable of shooting video in 1080p HD, while its rear boasts an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash.
What sets the Droid DNA apart from other smartphones with great cameras is that it is generally a brilliant all round phone. A sharp 5-inch screen, long battery line, a strong quad-core processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and 4G LTE are all features that strengthen the worth of the Droid DNA.
Simply the Best Phone Out: Samsung Galaxy SIII
However, for all the perks afforded in HTC’s Droid DNA, it isn’t quite the best phone available on the market at the moment. That title belongs to the Samsung Galaxy SIII.
The Galaxy SIII while also boasting a strong camera comes fully loaded with excellent software, an unbeatable dual-core processor, 4G LTE and Android 4.1.
It is the Galaxy SIII’s scintillating combination of a chic design, high-performing hardware and creative software that really propels this phone as the best out at the moment.
The thing with theis there are practically no flaws with the phone. The only possible one that can be thought of is that the screen is too dim. But that is clutching at straws and hardly much of a flaw in comparison to the weaknesses of other smartphones.
Most Popular: iPhone 5
For the most part of 2012 there was only really ever one phone on everyone’s lips: the iPhone 5. While the Samsung Galaxy SIII was undoubtedly the phone of the year and remains the best phone in the early days of 2013, the iPhone once again garnered the most attention, hype and euphoria.
Its critics would argue upon its release that the iPhone 5 didn’t quite live up to expectations and this is a harsh but somewhat understandable point to make, however there is no doubting that this is a beast of a machine and up there with the best available on the market.
Even if I would opt for mobile phone recycling and sell my iPhone for a Galaxy SIII, there is much to be excited about with the iPhone 5.
With long-overdue upgrades such as a larger screen, a stylish new design and faster 4G LTE, the iPhone 5 is the best iPhone yet, and due to both its brand and the quality of the phone, is the most popular out on the market.
