Who Makes The Best New Smartphones?
Truth is, there are a number of best new smartphones available today. So what exactly differentiates the best of the best, what ranks as the top smartphone available?
There’s so many aspects to consider and if you don’t have the time, it can be overwhelming. So we compress all that we find into simple little summaries to help you find out what new smartphones rank as the best. We examine all the major players, from the new releases by Samsung’s brand the Galaxy s5 to the Note 4, to Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, to Google’s new release the Nexus 6.
How Do We Rate The Top Smartphone?
What are the criteria we use to discover the top smartphone? From a cheap smartphone price to service, we start with technological upgrades and features, the software Operating Systems they run, the pricing options as well as customer care to determine their value.
So which one wins the award as the top smartphone?
For camera it has to be a tie between the iPhone 6/6 Plus and the Google Nexus 6. Specs are available here and here:
For video watching, the winners are the Galaxy Note 4 and the iPhone 6 Plus. Both of the huge phablet-style phones combines the convenience of a phone with the viewing screen of a small tablet, hence the term ‘phablet’. There are a number of reviews of the specifics for each from Business Insider, CNet, and we have our own that you can access for more information.
For Operating System we believe it’s a tie. Apple uses its brand specific iOS 8 to operate its mobile devices and is designed to integrate easily with it’s Yosemite OS for it’s Mac line. This seamless integration between Apple devices makes it really easy and simple to coordinate between multiple platforms. Mean time, the other smartphone’s on our radar use the Android OS and that gives it the power to access the world’s largest APP market, the Android marketplace.
For pricing, we believe the best deal for a cheap smartphone you can find is the Amazon Fire Phone that is for sale at $0.99 with a standard two-year contract. If you want more of a main-stream smartphone, we recommend the Verizon iPhone 6 contract. The benefit is that through Verizon, you’ll have flexibility to upgrade anytime you want, which is a huge option for those looking for the best new thing.
For customer care we recommend the Apple iPhone Brand. With a mix of outstanding in-store service to their patented ‘Apple Care’, the iPhone brand has the largest support network behind it to help you in a moment of crisis.
So let’s check the scoreboard. Apple scores in all four categories while Google Nexus 6 scores in two, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 scores in two and the Amazon Fire Phone scores just one point as having a price that makes it the cheap smartphone available.
It seems that Apple is obviously the top smartphone on the market today.
