Posted on Oct 29 2013 - 7:49pm by Samuel Evans

With the numerous smartphone manufacturers and the abundance of the models they are offering, it may be difficult to find a phone that perfectly suits your needs and budget. When you also take into the account the fact that phones are getting outdated quite fast, you also have to make sure that the device you are buying will not be considered old news in just a couple of months. All things said, the choice of what phone to buy will primarily depend on your needs, do you need an amazing camera or would you settle for just about anything; do you need large storage or processing power, or do you just want to be able to receive calls, send texts and read your mail? Seeing that it would be impossible to recommend something to every type of smartphone user, we decided to give you a short overview of some of the best high end phones, that may not be suitable for everyone’s budget but that will fulfill most of the other requirements of just about any kind of smartphone user.

Sony Xperia Z1

An amazing phone with a number of other features that recommend it over its competitors. This handheld has a 1920 x 1080 full HD 5 inch display, 2 GB RAM and a powerful 2.2 GHZ Qualcom Snapdragon 800 CPU. While this is the an amazing upgrade from the previous, also highly praised model, Sony Xperia Z, the most significant difference (at least when numbers are concerned) comes in the camera department, with Sony Xperia Z1 sporting an amazing 20.7 megapixel sensor, capable of making stunning shots. The casing of the phone is made of aluminum, which doesn’t add too much to the weight, but does make the phone more robust. Xperia Z1 is highly water and impact resistant and holds a powerful battery that will last quite a while, despite the phone’s considerable processing power.

Samsung Galaxy S4

When it comes to debates between ardent Apple and Android fans, this is usually the go to argument of the latter. While a lot of people complained how this phone is very similar to its predecessor, Samsung Galaxy S3, the similarities are mostly superficial. It is distinguished by a beautiful 5 inch Super AMOLED screen, naturally, with full HD resolution; amazingly fast CPU (it was sold with different CPUs in different countires), and a number of interesting and useful software solutions. For a phone with a large screen and powerful CPU it has more than decent battery life, and provides an overall pleasant user experience.

HTC One

This remains one of the most well balanced smartphones out there, providing a consistently exceptional user satisfaction, and maintaining its status as one of the most desirable phones with relative ease. It is housed in an aluminum casing which ensures sturdiness without significantly increasing the weight. With a slightly smaller screen than the previous models (4.7 inches), 32 GB storage, powerful RAM and CPU combo and a camera that leaves no room for complaints, this phone may just be the safest bet, as long as you don’t mind paying the price for this kind of quality.
