Tablets may be getting much of the attention leading up to the holiday season, but all the top consumer electronics manufacturers have their flagship smartphones on shelves now too —it's a great time for comparison shoppers. Every year choosing the right phone gets more difficult as the devices get faster, more capable and more attractive than the generation before. We’ve gone from chunky phones with 2.5-inch displays, 1 MP cameras and basic texting capability to sleek devices sporting 5-inch displays crammed with as many pixels as a HDTV, along with photo and video capabilities that rival a digital camera, mobile web surfing faster than some home Internet connections and the ability to play console-grade video games. Throw in variables like customized interfaces, and choosing a smartphone is tougher than ever. To help you pick the right phone for your needs, we’ve put together a comparison of five of the most popular Android flagship smartphones.
Motorola has unveiled its newest phone, the Moto G. It promises the full smartphone experience without the large pricetag.
Moto G is going to retail at $179 USD for the 8GB version or $199 for the 16GB version. And that is with no locked SIM cards and no contracts.
Christmas has come early.
While flagship smartphones like the HTC One can offer a spectacular user experience, not everyone wants or can afford the absolute latest and greatest. Fortunately, manufacturers have been putting considerable effort into expanding the capabilities and appeal of their mid-range models. The HTC Desire 601 is a great example of how smartphones in the tier below the flagships can be solid devices in their own right. The Desire 601 gives up some specs and the premium finish of the HTC One, but the end result is a more affordable Android smartphone that still offers plenty of performance. The display may not be on par with flagship devices, but it’s still bright, fairly big and reasonably sharp. The camera takes decent photos and the sound is a standout thanks to HTC’s BoomSound dual front speakers. The Desire 601 will be available in Best Buy stores starting on November 8, through Koodoo and Virgin Mobile.

Sony made a splash with the Xperia Z smartphone earlier this year (literally —the Xperia Z is waterproof) and the company is about to release the latest iteration of this flagship device, the Xperia Z1. The new Sony looks very similar to its predecessor, but the Z1 includes some serious improvements including a faster processor, a rounded aluminum case and a huge camera upgrade: a 20.7 megapixel Xmor RS image sensor (1/2.3-inch) with G Lens and BIONZ image processing engine. With the emphasis on the Xperia Z1’s primary camera, Sony is bringing its flagship smartphone into battle with the likes of Nokia’s Lumia 1020 for the heart of mobile users who want to ditch their pocket camera for good.
Samsung received some pretty solid reviews on the Galaxy Note II when it was released last year and has reportedly sold around 30 million to date. The Galaxy Note 3 is the followup with a lot riding on it, and from the reviews that have been surfacing, it looks as though Samsung nailed it. There have been reports of potential speed benchmark shenanigans, but despite any attempts to make it seem better than it is, the Galaxy Note 3 is showing itself to be an incredibly powerful and well-designed device. Some sites are even calling it a contender as the best smartphone ever. Here are three of the key ways the Galaxy Note 3 is proving that it’s a big leap forward.
