Galaxy S5

Oct/Nov 2014. Best Smartphones 2014!  Smartphones are the best! I was looking for a good new affordable smartphone because I lost my previous phone. I found many top brands and a lot of different good smartphones to choose from. The most important smartphone brands today are Samsung with its galaxy line, Apple with the iPhone, HTC with the One series and LG, Blackberry and Motorola.

 

Smartphones are mainly used for internet/social media besides of course for making a phone call. Therefore the phones on this page all have internet and Wifi. When you want to use your mobile phone for internet, email and social media => be smart and buy a smartphone.

Below you find the two Best Smartphones 2014 and after that the different categories: the best HTC, iPhone, Samsung, LG, BlackBerry phones and my selection of smartphones with service plan, prepaid/ no-contract phones and unlocked phones.

New/ Upcomming Smartphones Expected For November 2014

The new Samsung Galaxy S5 is in the shops a few months now and and the Apple iPone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are in the stores together with a new smart watch. These are exiting times for smartphone fans!

In reaction to the iPhone 6, Samsung has announced their new smartphones: the Galaxy Alpha and new Note 4. Read a good comparison Galaxy Alpha vs iPhone 6 here.

 

 


Which Smartphone Is The Best Choice?

That depends on what you want to use your smartphone for

The functions that are most important for myself are: – make a call, internet/ social media and the alarm clock. I use my phone as my wake-up alarm because it wakes me up with my favorite MP3. I use Internet and social media on my phone mostly when I am traveling by train and at home where I have wifi. I have a prepaid phone so I dont want to use the internet on the 3g/4g network too much. An other choice you have to make is between an android/ Apple/ windows phone and if you want a more expensive high end smartphone or if you are satisfied with a cheaper alternative that covers the basic functions.

#1 Smartphone 2014: Samsung Galaxy S5

The Best Android Smartphone On The Market Today

In my opinion: the new Samsung  S5 is despite the iPhone 6 (plus) the best smartphone 2014. This has mostly to do with the price/quality. The Galaxy S5 and the iPhone 6 are both awesome smartphones but the Galaxy S5 is more affordable. It certainly is the best android smartphone with a very beautiful design, fast and reliable. The best smartphone you can buy at the moment.

 

Samsung Galaxy S5 Review And Specs

The Samsung Galaxy S5 feels solid and, despite its size, very comfortable in the hand. The S5 has all the features that the S4 has but better. It is the S4 on steroids. And the S4 already was the best phone of last year. The OS is Android 4.4.2 (Kit Kat). With the 2.5 Ghz quad processor this smartphone is very fast indeed. I think the big 5 inch screen is very good, has a lot of contrast and is very clear although in direct sunlight this is a bit less obvious. I would never be happy again with a smaller screen. The 16 Mp rear camera (picture and video) on the back and also the battery time are excellent. Maybe some people might find the plastic feel a bit undesirable. Many software features are installed like the S Health fitness app and Air Gesture. The impressive specs and all the software that samsung has put in the S5 make this a challenging  phone. But then again, if you drive a Ferrari, you need very good driving skills. It is like that with this awesome smartphone. Overall, looking at price/quality, nothing can beat the Samsung Galaxy S5.

  #2) Apple iPhone 6 16 GB

The Best Apple (iPhone) Smartphone 2014

The iPhone 6 is an awesome smartphone and will be the best iPhone untill the next iPhone is available. Unfortunately the iPhone is quite expensive while the basic model still has only 16GB, which is not much for the money. That is why the iPhone 6 is #2 in this list and not  #1.

iPhone 6/ 6 Plus review and Specs

With the iPhone 6 Apple for the first time produced a smartphone with a ‘big’ screen. The 4.7 inch screen is considerably larger than previous iPhones, but thanks to the new design with rounded finished edges it feels comfortable in the hand. The screen is again beautiful, with high contrast and high brightness and thanks to the new Apple A8 chip the iPhone 6 is fast and has a good battery life.

The camera has been improved somewhat , especially in low light conditions. An other positive point is the new version of iOS, which provides Apple users and developers more choices and options.

If you can afford the iPhone 6 and you are an Apple enthusiast, then with the iPhone 6 you get one of the best smartphones currently available.

Specs iPhone 6:

4.7″ LED-backlit IPS LCD Multi-Touchscreen w/ Shatter-Proof Glass and Oleophobic CoatingiOS 8, Dual-Core 1.4 GHz Cyclone (ARM v8-based) Processor, Chipset: Apple A8, PowerVR GX6650 (hexa-core graphics) Graphics8 Megapixel Camera (3264 x 2448 pixels) w/ Autofocus, dual-LED (dual tone) Flash + Front-Facing 1.2 Megapixel Camera, 720p, burst, HDRInternal Memory: 16GB, 1GB RAM

Size (LWH): 5.44 inches, 0.27 inches, 2.64 inches

Weight: 4.48 ounces
Minimum Rated Talk Time: 14 hours
Minimum Rated Standby Time: 250 hours

 

The iPhone 6 Plus has an even bigger screen, too big for my taste, which is difficult to handle with one hand. For people interested in the iPhone 6 Plus: here is the link

 For people who want to buy an iPhone but dont need to have the latest model:

iPhone 5/ 5S review and Specs

For the iPhone 5 S Apple has chosen a sleek design with aluminum/glass on the front and aluminum plate on the back.

Besides the camera on the back you can see the LED flash. Both are very nicely incorporated into the body of the iPhone.

On the front is the ‘Front Facing Camera’ located in the aluminum. In the iPhone 4 the dark color of the camera module made that you could not easily notice the camera. This has changed for the iPhone 5 and 5S.

Apple is very proud of the Retina Display screen of the iPhone. The human eye can not distinguish the pixels. This makes all texts and images appear like “printed pages”.


HTC, LG, BlackBerry


  Best HTC Smartphones

The HTC One

HTC is a very strong South Korean brand that is able to give competition with the HTC One M8 to the two big players in the smartphone market, Samsung Galaxy and Apple iPhone. The mobiles that HTC produced are high quality but less expensive than the Galaxy and iPhone series, making it a much appreciated alternative.
