Samsung’s Galaxy S4 and Note 3 were supposed to be upgraded by the first quarter of 2014 according to the official reports coming from Samsung. In addition, Phonearena had reported that mobile carriers confirmed that the S4 would be upgraded by the end of January.

Top Smartphones of 2013: Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One, Sony Xperia Z1

The Smartphone scenario is always in a state of dynamic flux, ever changing and evolving. Prices are being slashed, hardware is being improved and new handsets are being released with increasing frequency. The year 2013 say a number of companies dominating the Smartphone market with their innovative products. Nexus brand has consolidated itself while Nokia is also going from strength to strength. Motorola has also made a strong entry. However which one of the lot is the best is a very tricky question. There are a whole lot of things which can have a bearing on the consumer’s decision as to which smartphone to buy and he is also the best judge.

Let us know what you think is the best smartphone in the comments below.

Nokia Lumia 620

This economy Window Phone gives full value for the money spent. It also retains the unique design and build quality. Nokia Lumia 620 is in the scene for some time now but still retains its freshness to a large measure and it’s still great value for money.

"nokia_lumia_620"

The Nokia Lumia 620 is carrying a price tag which is very honest and down to earth. The down to earth prices do compromise in comparison to other premium smart phones by the way of specs. However Nokia Lumia 620 is the right choice for any consumer who is looking for a compact Smartphone at an economical price.

Also Lumia 620 is not hampered by the problems of its illustrious elder brother, the Lumia 920 and 820 like the high cost and large sized screens which cannot fit in the average sized palm. The Lumia 620 is small and compact but could look small in the hands of big bodied users.

Nokia Lumia 1020

If you are looking for the best Windows Phone as well as a Smartphone with the best camera, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is the right choice for you. The Lumia 1020 has been created with the above two motives in mind by Nokia.

Nokia-Lumia-1020-2ad

The highlight of the Lumia 1020 is its PureView camera which gives options which are possible in any top of the order cameras. The only downside is the huge sized Smartphone which does become uncomfortable in one hand. The Lumia 925 seems to be a better option for an average user. The Lumia 1020 also suffers from less battery life and if you are using the camera a lot, it can get a little problematic.

The Lumia 1020 is at par in many areas with the Lumia 925. The Windows Phone OS is a good and viable alternative to the Android and the iOS. There are some lacunae since it is a relatively younger ecosystem but its makers are doing much to plug these holes.

The Lumia 1020 can be called a technological marvel and a solid phone too. Sure, there are some failings, and Windows Phone still needs to widen as an operating system.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini

In earlier times anything with the suffix Mini meant that the device will be smaller and will have lesser features. Today’s competitive times have forced companies to use the mini version of its more successful full versions to pull in some extra sales. The mid range of today is more appealing in present times.  The Galaxy S4 Mini may be a little small in its dimensions as compared to its larger cousins but it does not mean that it is a pushover and features all the major specs.

"Samsung-Galaxy-S4-Mini'

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini is based on the Android platform but the customization by Samsung has made it more endearing. The display is very good though not to the levels of HTC One Mini. However the Galaxy S 4 mini features an option to increase the storage space with the provision of the microSD card expansion and access to the battery, should you wish to swap it

Galaxy S4 Mini has plenty of power under the hood coupled with a slick design and all that software innovation, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini is cheaper and more compact than its elder brother, but still delivers a great Smartphone experience.

HTC One mini

HTC_One_mini

The HTC One Mini could be really called the miniature version of the HTC One. The HTC One Mini features a 4.3 inch 720p display and packs a formidable punch under its hood to effortlessly complete all the tasks which is thrown at it.

The HTC One is equally endowed with when it comes to the spec sheet and also features the same UltraPixel camera of the HTC One. It also features much akin to its senior counterpart the smart functions like Zoe and the highlight videos that bring your photography to life.

Motorola Moto X

MotoX-9782

Motorola has been in business for a very long time. However Motorola is not known for aggressively promoting its products like its rivals like Samsung or Apple. However their products are not a pushover and have a large number of fans. One such Smartphone is the Moto X.

The Moto X may not fit in the definition of a premium smartphones but it offers a lot of bang for the cost tag it carries. The device boasts a dual core processor along with a 2GB RAM. The 4.7 inch screen is a bit average with a 720p resolution. What you get is a choice of designing the exteriors as per your choice. Users can design the exteriors according to their taste with a choice of 252 different color combinations.

The Moto X runs on the Android Jelly Bean OS with a fair sprinkling of its Motorola tweaks which is very good and has the right balance of customization nothing less and nothing more. It features a massive 2200 mAh battery which towers on all the other smartphones in its category. The device is available for $199 and gives enough punch for the price.

HTC One

HTC-One-design-and-build

The HTC One is the numero uno and it is an acknowledgement of the triumph of design which is also all encompassing. The HTC One with a stunning and full HD resolution 4.7 inch display makes the pictures pin sharp and delivers visually enamoring picture quality.

The Hardware cannot be called as exactly threatening but can do the daily tasks thrown at it with ease. However if you look for brute power which is sparingly used , you better look for other options since HTC One  is for normal users.

HTC Sense has been refurbished and pruned with a lot of the untidiness removed to focus on the indispensable features. There’s a stylishness and classiness to HTC’s flagship phone for 2013, making it a pleasure to use.

There are some downsides like the camera which may not be the best but not a pushover also. The other features are a real FUN. The HTC One was awarded Best Smartphone 2013 in the 10th Annual Pocket-lint Awards and more recently, HTC has announced a One with a removable back, so it will take microSD.

Apple iPhone 5C

Apple iPhone 5C

The economy iPhone is finally out and Apple has used plastic to make the body of the iPhone 5C and it features most of the specs which is present in its premium version the iPhone 5S.

The iPhone 5C is Apple’s vibrant handset. It takes the insides of 2012’s iPhone 5, plus 4G compatibility and a little improved battery life and is enclosed in a colorful plastic casing.

It was originally targeted as a economy version of the costlier iPhone 5S but the device offers almost everything which is on sale in the App Store. It may not have the regal look like the iPhone 5S but still is very attractive and can rub shoulders with any premium smartphones.

As an upgrade to the iPhone 4S, the 5C is a perfect candidate, as it’s an iPhone 5 refresh that makes it more fresh and fun than the original 5 ever was.

Sony Xperia Z1

xperia-Z1

It is a worthy successor to the Sony Xperia Z and brings to its fans a powerful handset which is water resistant and, has a slick design and also bears a huge 5 inch display.

The specs make the Sony Xperia Z1 at least on paper as the ultimate Smartphone of all times. It features a 20 MP camera and has a bigger footprint than the Galaxy S4 and the LG G2 but it is still a wee bit smaller than a phablet.

Sony has created a potent and good-quality device in the Xperia Z1. It hits all the high points on the spec sheet, but this is not the only consideration while ranking any Smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Active

It is almost akin to the Galaxy S4 but with a rider, it is waterproof and it is also costs slightly less than the Galaxy S4. The phone is bristling with power and also features an impressive Full HD display. There is the Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface. The rugged looks or the move to hardware buttons may not appeal to everyone but for those who lead a rough life the Samsung S4 Active is a perfect accessory.

samsung-galaxy-s4-active

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active is a grand handset, offering a flagship Smartphone experience in a device that’s waterproof. If you’re accident prone or are always getting caught in the rain, then this is the Smartphone you should be carrying.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Samsung_Galaxy_Note_3

Takes the concept of the phablet to still greater heights and Samsung has refined the concept further to release the Galaxy Note 3.The Galaxy Note 3 features  5.7-inch display offering a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, giving you 386ppi. It’s packed into a frame that measure 151.2 x 79.2 x 8.3mm, making it one of the most compact devices with such an expansive display.

The device is powerful courtesy the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset and 3GB of RAM, meaning that everything is slick and smooth. Samsung hasn’t ignored the screen space on offer, giving you pioneering features through the S Pen to help keep you productive.

The Note 3 is yours for £599. Arguably you can get bigger displays for the same money, but in the Note 3 the blend just feels right. It might be just too big for some.

Apple iPhone 5S

iPhone 5S

Apple always excels and the Cupertino Giant always pays exquisite attention to detail and wonderful design and the result is the iPhone 5S. It is the biggest Smartphone in the iOS ecology. The iPhone 5S has not been massively modified. But still it is far ahead of its competitors when it comes to style and regality.

The iPhone 5S experience is very sophisticated; it’s established, recognizable and spontaneous and supported ably by an App Store that’s always first in line for the new apps, while you won’t be left waiting for Apple’s software updates.

The new iPhone 5S is advancement, maintaining the great hardware features and providing new grounds for innovative apps over the next year. It might be dwarfed by the hardware options you’ll find elsewhere, but it still delivers a first-class experience.

HTC One Gold to release in US soon

Both the Cupertino and the South Korean company may have only gold covered Smartphone. However HTC has gone a step ahead and has unveiled its HTC One Smartphone which is plated with actual gold.

In October, five limited edition 18 carat gold plated HTC One Smartphone were released. The five limited edition of HTC One had a stiff price tag of £2,750 which is equivalent to $4,416.

Gold-HTC-One-

Not to be left behind HTC USA is also jumping into the golden fray and is going to release a gold plated HTC One version. The 24 Carat Gold plated version is going to cost $2500. However, the chance of you getting your hand on the Gold plated HTC One is very bleak. Only one gold plated device is available at the HTC office in New York. HTC is reportedly offering two Gold plated devices for a contest which will run in New York City through New Year.

gold_htc_one_1_2

Companies like apple have released Gold colored iPhones but the real Gold plated HTC One looks much better. As compared to the champagne colored Gold iPhone, the HTC One Gold plated device looks much regal and real. The hue of Gold is markedly different from other metals and no amount of imitation can match or replicate the original golden color.

The HTC One device itself is no more different from the regular versions and the specs are all the same. Only the outer body has been electroplated with 24 carat Gold. If you are not able to get your hand on the Gold colored HTC One akin to the iPhone 5S and so also the Samsung Galaxy S4 variant which has been made for the Middle East countries. However if you really want to own a golden Smartphone you can get it done at Goldgenie who will plate your existing Smartphone. Alternatively it can also sell you a new gold plated Smartphone for a few thousand dollars.

Galaxy S5 Receiveing Help From Technology On The Galaxy Note 3

Samsung is now going to put to use the technology for its next Flagship Galaxy S5 which will replace the present flagship, Galaxy S4 some time in first quarter in 2014.

Samsung maybe increasing the size of the screens of Galaxy range of devices, however with the launch of the Galaxy Note 3 has also started to trim down the excess flab on its devices and all this has been enabled by the revolutionary LDX technology which envisages reducing the size of the antennas The reduction of the antenna size has enabled Samsung to reduce the thickness of the Galaxy Note 3 by a large degree.

The latest rumors point out that the Galaxy S5 will be released in April though it can be released a bit earlier.

Samsung Galaxy Note III leather back cover, 2.3GHz, 3GB RAM, 13MP, 3200mAh and the new S Pen 1

The next iteration of Samsung as well as Apple devices will be quite an upgrade as compared to previous devices. Fans of both Samsung and Apple have been fed with a series of devices each, refurbished in a trivial way leading to anger and irritation among the diehard fans of both the Electronic Giants. Both Samsung and Apple have to produce something worthwhile in their next iteration of devices or they are bound to lose a lot of goodwill.

Galaxy S5 will be very slim and sleek as compared to its earlier iterations and the only thing which is going to increase is the screen size. Even the Galaxy S4 as a technological breakthrough since Samsung managed to chisel out more than .5mm from its previous iteration. The process continued with the Galaxy Note 3 also and now the same technology will be used to create a slimmer version of the Galaxy Smartphone.

So the LDS technology which basically involves sandwiching the antennas between successive layers of plastic and the space saved will be used for putting in more features and reducing the thickness of the device. However there are skeptics who question the viability of the very LDS Technology. They reason that the Smartphone will be more susceptible to shocks due to accidents which can damage the delicate antennas interspersed between the layers of plastic.

Galaxy S4 Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Update for AT&T, U.S Cellular, Verizon by Samsung

Samsung Galaxy S4 is finally going to get its Android 4.3 update in the US. The update has been rolled out for Galaxy S4 users attached to AT&T along with the US Cellular carrier. Details of the Galaxy S4 Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update has once again appeared on the on U.S. Cellular’s website today along with a new build which users can download.

The US Cellular had started rolling out the Galaxy S4 Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update. The update also carries Galaxy Gear support and Samsung KNOX. The Android 4.3 Jelly Bean is the last iteration of the Jelly Bean version and will replace the power guzzling Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS on which the Galaxy S4 has been based till now.

However just after the rollout started it was learnt that AT&T Galaxy S4 update has been halted . Soon it was learnt that U.S. Cellular Galaxy S4 update was halted. Carriers have also confirmed that the updates have been halted though it is still not clear why Samsung has halted the rollout of the updates.

A couple of days ago, the AT&T Galaxy S4 Android4.3 update have started rolling again though the rollout by US Cellular has not started or it seems so. However today the carrier is boldly displaying that Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update is available.

However the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean which is being rolled out is different from the earlier version and has been christened R970TYUEMK2. It could be akin to the I337UCUEMK2 build which was rolled out by AT&T for its Galaxy S4 users who have been hooked to the carrier. Samsung’s website has maintained a stoic silence though it has said that the latest update is the old R970VXUAMJA build. However the most important thing is that the US Cellular Galaxy S4 users are receiving the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update. This is going to be the last major Galaxy S4 Android 4.3 Jelly Bean rollout since AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon have all rolled out Galaxy S4 updates.

Looking at the problem ridden rollout of the Galaxy S4 Android 4.3 update in the US, it seems that US Cellular users of the Galaxy S4 will b doubly careful while uploading the latest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean software.

Google Nexus 5 benchmark test scores over Samsung Galaxy S4 numbers

Android and Samsung devices were once synonymous with one another and it is not like that today. The entry of Nexus 5 in the market has complicated matters and it is really difficult for consumers to choose the right Android Smartphone.

The Nexus 5 is arguably one of the finest creations by Google and is a gem of a smartphone. The Nexus 5 boasts a 5 inch 1080p display. The device is powered by a Quad Core Snapdragon 800 processor. The device features an optically stabilized camera and is based on the latest Android 4.4 KitKat OS. Nexus boasts a price tag of $350.

On the other hand we have the Galaxy S4, the latest flagship from Samsung and it features a 1080p OLED screen along with an expandable memory and replaceable battery. Coming to design it will be Glossy or Soft touch plastic which will differentiate and help users make a choice since both Galaxy S4 and the Nexus 5 weigh exactly the same. The dimensions are also identical. However what separates the Google product from the Galaxy S4 is its industrial design and the Nexus 5 feels very reassuring in the hand.

google-now-nexus-5

The Soft Touch of the Nexus 5 which has been made by LG makes the device look more premium than the glossy feel of the polycarbonate body Galaxy S4. The gloss is sure to fade off some time in future. It all boils down to your personal tastes since the soft touch and black colored Nexus 5 becomes covered with smudges after a few minutes of handling.

Being fair to Galaxy S4 the notable features which enamors it to its fans are its removable back covers, expandable memory storage and replaceable battery, the S4 does not stray from tradition while the Nexus 5 with its uni-body design irreplaceable battery and no memory expansion features pales in comparison.

The Nexus 5 features the micro SIM card slots and users are forewarned to handle it very carefully since the opening for ejecting the tray with the SIM Card is very small and do not use something which will enlarge the opening in an ugly way.

Both the devices feature screens which are 5 inches and 1080×1920 pixels Full-HD panels. However they are not alike and differ vastly. Samsung uses it in house AMOLED tech which brings about very deep black levels, yet over-saturated colors. On the other hand the Nexus 5 uses IPS-LCD screen made by LG, which sports more washed-out blacks compared to the Galaxy S4, but truer color representation. The Nexus 5 screen also scores outdoors and its LCD screen is brighter than the S4 panel.
