Top 10 Mobile Phones In The Market Today

Mobile phones have assumed a very important position in today’s human life. People have become so accustomed to the use of mobile phones that even thought of life without mobile phones makes people anxious and worried. It is very interesting to note that the use of mobile phones is now not only confined to particular rich class, rather people from every segment of social life have developed a fondness towards this device. If you eager to take a note, here is a list of 10 best mobile phones  in the market today, which you may want to consider, as listed by Gareth Beavis of techrader.

Sony Xperia Z2: Sony's back in competition with an excellent phone in the shape of the Xperia Z2. There's no question that the Xperia Z2 will be going head to head with the Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One M8 and Nokia Lumia 930 this year—and with that in mind it's got its work cut out.
The Xperia Z2 carries a very impressive design with a classy premium quality metal all round and Sony also made sure that there is almost zero compromises on screen, sound, camera or battery life. So it’s well, crafted and almost close to perfect. The Z2 steals second place simply by being a great all-rounder but doesn't have the polish of the HTC One M8, nor the more functional user interface, and it does what's asked with top-end specs. That's what the users like.

HTC One M8: The new HTC One is a great Smartphone that does a lot of fantastic things. The One M8 features a gorgeous industrial design, a fantastic display, great camera and top-of-the-line performance. HTC has certainly given its best into it, which can be evidenced by nearly every aspect of the device. The phone has actually exceeded nearly all of consumer’s expectations.
The Snapdragon 801 processor on the One has boosted battery dramatically compared to the 600 processor of the previous version. To add on to that gaming, movies, photography and browsing all work really well, and it is a phone that can easily take on whatever anyone else can design at the moment.
 Samsung Galaxy S5: 2014 is turning out to be a stunning year for the prospective Smartphone user, as the HTC One (M8) was joined by the Samsung Galaxy S5 in best Smartphone list, and now the Xperia Z2 enters the fray too.
There was a lot of hype around the new Galaxy, and rightly so— it's by far the best phone Samsung has ever produced, with an evolutionary camera that gives clearer and faster snaps. The battery is also larger with the bigger and brighter screen along with  quicker processor and  design alterations.
The spec sheet certainly doesn't let it down as it comes with a 2.5GHz quad-core CPU, 2GB of RAM, a 2800mAh (removable) battery, 16 / 32GB of memory with up to 128GB extra through microSD with one of the world's most vibrant screens that's been extended to 5.1-inches and added biometrics.
LG G2: This might surprise many of us but LG has made a phone that not only impressed consumers but ran the HTC One very close battle for the top spot in 2013 and at the moment holds that place into 2014 too.
Well, talking about G2 it is the most feature rich device with a very premium quality True HD-IPS LCD screen. Moreover, it is also the most powerful Smartphone with its stunning fast Snapdragon processor. The compact and unique design of this superphone doesn’t makes it feel cheap. And not to forget it also packs with a brilliant 13 MP Camera and an Optical Image Stabilization that makes it a standalone in its category. In the nutshell, LG G2 is the best Anroid Phone at present and of course with high end features and a value for money proposition it is the best mobile phone that you can buy today.
Sony Xperia Z1 Compact: The Xperia Z1 is mildly-nonplussing mobile phone that is designed into a smaller frame, with almost nothing compromised except the two features like the 1080p screen and a smaller battery.
With a 4.3-inch screen it's one of the most easy to use devices from the Sony flagship, but this smartphone does it better with a much lower cost and a great battery life to boot. Even though Sony has given the Z1 smaller screen compared to other of its models but it has kicked diminutive RAM and lesser cores to the mobile kerb. In fact Sony has even allowed the Xperia Z1 Compact to keep the waterproof nature of the Z1.
#5 Google Nexus 5: Nexus 5 is really an outstanding mobile phone  and Google has proved its excellence by this phone. The beautiful and elegant design, a wonderful screen and latest operating system of Android KitKat adds another taste this phone. And the best thing about the Nexus 5 is its price which makes this really a definite pick among the other top mobile phones. Google Nexus 5 is a phone that matches the powers of top android phones and comes at merely half of its price.
HTC One: The One isn't just the best smartphone HTC has ever made but it can legitimately lay claim to being the best smartphone  at the moment. The One is an incredibly impressive device from the HTC flagship that hits all the right notes for a smartphone user. The fit and finish of the hardware, the quality of the display, the camera, and the speed of the operation system is so well crafted to suit the consumers. In fact even the changes HTC has made to the user interface all come together in a way that you rarely see in a gadget.
iPhone 5S: With the iPhone 5s, Apple once again has the right to claim the title of best smartphone available at the moment. The hardware resembles to that of its predecessor in many ways, as with the 4-inch Retina display, but it improves dramatically in areas like the camera where it makes the most difference to every day users. With  latest addition like the fingerprint sensor, the 5s rules out many of its rivals on this well crafted spec, which is already a feature which most of the iphone users miss when you switch back to older generation devices or the iPhone 5c. The 5s pins down one of the fastest 64-bit A7 processor under its hood that is more than any iPhone before it and is likely to be the device that grows more appealing as the software ecosystem catches up.


Moto G: Motorola's back, and it's kicking off its global smartphone revival with the well priced Moto G handset. A mid-range handset the Moto G is undoubtedly the most bang-for-your-buck smartphone.
The Moto G comes with a 4.5-inch, 1280 x 720 display and boasts a 329ppi pixel density. To put that in some perspective that's actually bigger and higher resolution and more defined display than that of the iPhone 5S –not bad for a handset which is of low price. To add on to that Motorola has also managed to equip the Moto G with a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor and 1GB of RAM. With this specs the Moto G is actually giving the HTC One Mini, Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini and Nokia Lumia 820 a run for their mid-range phone variants. All in all the Moto G finds itself in no-man’s land, with a complete disconnect between its price and spec list. And of course, that isn't a bad thing as on paper it offers outstanding value for money.
Samsung Galaxy S4: The Korean manufacturer Samsung managed to hold off HTC at the top in 2012, but in 2013 the supreme styling of the HTC One proved too strong against a phone that's a slightly-better-version of its predecessor, especially when you consider the design.
There's a lot, to love with the Samsung Galaxy S4 though— whether it's a powerful chipset, a brilliant camera, and a masterpiece touch screen with a long-lasting battery that gives user the sheer experience when used.
The cost is touch higher than that of the other smartphones, but still cheaper than the likes of iPhone. The company’s other rivals like LG, Sony and Google have come out with some attractive propositions to overtake the Koreans phone maker but that hasn't stopped this stylish gadget from being one of the most popular phones of 2013.
