A Look At The Best Android Phones On The Market (2014)

The Android platform has evolved massively over the last 5 years. It is now massively intuitive and a powerful operating system. On top of that the number of applications available has topped 1,300,000. You can get an application for just about anything these days, and in terms applications you are probably better off on an Android phone than an iPhone. Still a lot of people choose to move towards Apple devices for their sheer beauty and the ‘glamour’ that they bring. There is no doubt though that Android has developed into the leader in the world marketplace. Let’s take a look at 5 of the flagship Android phones, and why they are so good.

Samsung Galaxy S5


The Samsung Galaxy S5 is an absolutely brilliant phone. It’s full of cutting-edge features, has a 5.1 inch top quality display and a snapdragon processor that is extremely speedy. On top of this it has a quality 16 megapixel camera that can perform well in most situations.

Those that go with the Samsung Galaxy S5 are almost unanimously happy with the product they get. If you love Samsung this is definitely a phone for you.

OnePlus One


This phone arrived on the market with very little carnival. It came from a company that was little-known. However, it has made a splash by being one of the best value phones ever built. On a SIM free basis it is only £229. It houses a full HD display of 5.5 inches and a terrific quad core processor of 2.5 GHz. It also has 3 GB of RAM and is a high performing phone at around half the price of the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8. The crazy thing is you can get a new one for around the same as you could get a second hand S4 on Gumtree or any other classified site. In terms of value for money this is just about the best out there and these things clearly hold their value. The screen is perhaps a little large for some users but then we do live in the age of the Phablet.

The Sony Xperia Z2


This phone has brought Sony back into the market yet again. The design is perhaps a little chunky and industrial but it oozes class and premium quality. It has an IP 58 rating, which means it is waterproof and dust-proof. On top of this it has a terrific battery life and an excellent camera. It is a phone that is all round great and has front facing speakers like the HTC models. The screen is better than previous Sony phones and it is a phone that should definitely be on your shortlist if you’re looking for the best phone on Android.

HTC One M8


This phone’s camera is fast and high quality. Cameras have become more important to smart phones over recent years (just look at the struggle Blackberry have had with theirs- amongst other issues) and in this phone you have a terrific performing snapper. The processor is a SnapDragon 801 and is faster than the previous HTC One. It also drains the battery significantly more slowly. You can do just about anything on this phone at top speeds. You should definitely pick up one of these and see just how good it looks feels and performs when you are looking to purchase a new Android phone. It is just about the best out there- along with the LG G3.



The best thing about this phone is the display. It has a 1440 X 2560 resolution QHD display. It is the sharpest screen on the market. It is a future proof display that performs better than anything out there. It has a 2.45 GHz quad core processor and 3 GB of RAM. It is fast enough for anything on the market at the moment. The rear of the phone is faux-metal (and a little disappointing) and the 5.5 inch display is a little large for those with smaller hands. Overall though this is an absolutely terrific phone and difficult to beat in the market. You will surely enjoy using this phone and will get a buzz out of its look if you opt to purchase it.

Android phones have gone from strength to strength over the years and these models are the best out there at the moment in 2014.
