|Best smartphones of 2014||16/07/2014|
|No longer just used to make phone calls and send text messages. So choosing the right one for you is crucial. Here are just some of the best 2014 smartphones.|
We are all searching for our perfect match; the one that wakes us up in the morning, shares our memories, and keeps us company on our commute to work. They entertain us when we are bored, they sing to us when we are glum, and they help us find our way when we are feeling lost. You know the perfect smartphone.
No two smartphones are the same and if we find one but later discover that we might have made a mistake, then that is OK as there are plenty more phones in the sea. The connection that we have with our mobile phones is a deep one and we are very protective of them. That is why it is important to find our own Mr or Mrs Right-Phone. This year smartphones have really taken it up a level and are competing to be the best. So, which smartphone of 2014 has caught your eye?
The irresistible iPhone 5s
The iPhone 5s is like a blend of Adriana Lima’s looks, with Stephen Hawking’s brain, and Lindsay Lohan’s absolute determination to have fun at all costs. The battery is no superman but it is easy to use, full of every kind of app you could ever want and with an awesome camera, this phone is pretty close to perfection according to some fans.
The hot HTC One M8
While the One could also be considered a worthy contender for the outright best phone, its terrible camera lets it down. Being made out of a single piece of sexy aluminium however makes it the best looking phone on the market, so you know it’s tough. HTC has also included a microSD card slot that can support up to 128GB and the latest version of Sense 6.0, based on Android 4.4 KitKat. It was a tough challenge for HTC to improve on the One, but the HTC One M8 is proof that the best can get better. Here are our top 7 of the best HTC One M8.
The beloved Blackberry Z30
Some of us are just too impatient for the battery sucking smartphones out there and we seek our zen from the Blackberry. The Blackberry can be trusted not to suck the life out of your battery meaning that you can use it all day long. The apps are limited but you can also buy Android apps which kind of makes up for that.
Samsung Galaxy S5
The Samsung Galaxy S5 arrived with much anticipation – would we be seeing another record-smashing Samsung smartphone? Samsung has stuck with a plastic build but given the S5 an IP67 water- and dust-proof rating. Specs under the hood have improved slightly too. Picture and sound quality fall behind other Android smartphones again but the camera and battery are areas where it really rules. Like the iPhone 5s it has a fingerprint scanner and also adds a heart rate monitor which is something we've not seen on a smartphone before. Check out what’s new about the Samsung Galaxy S5.
The simple Sony Xperia Z2
The Sony is your average Joe of the smartphone world. It does everything that we would want a smartphone to do and with helpings of aluminium and glass, and is incredibly thin at 8.2mm. The camera is OK, the battery life is fine, it’s waterproof and there are enough apps to keep us entertained. The Sony is great for people who are after a slightly bigger screen and audio from the Z2 is among the best we've heard on an Android smartphone.
