Top 10 Smart Phones InThe World Right Now

Unless you really want to wait for the rumored big-screen iPhone 6, now is a great time to buy a smartphone. In the last few months, both HTC and Samsung launched new flagship phones that are pretty good. And there are plenty of solid older devices that you can buy at a steep discount. Check out top 10 smartphones in the market now

#10 Nokia Lumia 1520

The Lumia 1520 is the first Windows Phone phablet ever made. It has a huge 6-inch screen, which gives you extra room for more apps and Live Tiles on your home screen.

#9 Sony Xperia Z1S

If you're accident prone, then Sony's new Xperia Z1S might be a good choice for you. The Android device is virtually waterproof, and it can survive under 5 feet of water for up to 30 minutes.

#8 LG G2

The G2 is LG's latest flagship phone. It has a gorgeous 5-inch display, one of the best you can get on a smartphone. But it does have one odd design quirk: the power and volume buttons are located on the back of the phone, making it a bit awkward to use at first.

Warning: LG is expected to launch a new flagship later this month. If you like LG phones and can wait a few weeks, you should.

#7 Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Samsung popularized the "phablet" category with the Galaxy Note more than two years ago. Now the phone is in its third generation with the Galaxy Note 3.

The Galaxy Note 3 has the biggest screen yet, 5.7 inches, yet its body is actually thinner and lighter than the last model. It also comes with a special stylus called the S Pen for drawing or taking notes. It's the best phablet you can buy.

#6 Motorola Moto X

The Moto X is one of the best Android phones. Motorola added some new features to Android, like the ability to check notifications easily from the home screen and launch the camera app by twisting the phone. But it's still mostly the "clean" version Android from Google.

You can also fully customize the look of your device with a variety of color options for the case and buttons.

#5 Google Nexus 5

Google's latest flagship phone is the Nexus 5, which was made in partnership with LG.

Like all of Google's Nexus devices, the Nexus 5 runs a pure version of Android, meaning you won't find any modifications to the software. It also gets software updates much faster than other Android phones. But perhaps the best part is the value. You can get the Nexus 5 unlocked for about half the price as other top-tier smartphones.

The only downside: the camera isn't that great.

#4 Samsung Galaxy S5

Samsung's newest flagship phone, the Galaxy S5, is a nice improvement over last year's phone.

Instead of weighing the device down with a bunch of unnecessary features, Samsung focused on improving the stuff people care about the most. The Galaxy S5 has the best screen (5.1 inches) ever made for a smartphone. The camera is really good, too.

But if you don't like phones made out of plastic, you should probably look for something else.

#3 HTC One (M8)

HTC's latest flagship phone, the HTC One (M8), is the best Android phone you can buy.

Like the original, the new HTC One, which is also called the M8, has a gorgeous design and high-quality metal construction. It also has an extra rear camera that acts as a depth sensor so you can edit photos later and change the focus.  

#2 HTC One (M8) Google Edition

HTC partnered with Google to create a version of the HTC One (M8) that runs a clean version of Android. That means you don't get any of the extras that come with the regular version you buy through carriers. You also get software updates directly from Google shortly after they're ready.
If you want a great phone with the best possible Android experience, this is the device to buy.

#1 iPhone 5S

For most people, the iPhone 5S is the best smartphone available.

It strikes the perfect balance of great design, useful features, and app and content selection. The iPhone 5S looks nearly identical to last year's iPhone 5, but sports a better camera and a fingerprint sensor for unlocking the phone without a passcode.
