September 28, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

There’s nothing quite like getting a new smartphone to play with, but unless you are completely set on buying an iPhone or a Windows Phone, you’re probably going to have (at least) some trouble picking out your perfect handset. Why? Mostly because of the choice of available Android smartphones on the market nowadays.

HTC, Samsung, and LG Phones together

Shopping for a new phone has become anything but an easy task, because when the time comes for you to buy a phone, you’re faced with way too many functions, screen sizes, brands, and prices. So, in order to clear things up a bit and help you make a decision, we’ve rounded up the best Android handsets out there today. If you need more details about the phones, head over to their respective pages on our webshop.

A Phone Unlike Any Other: Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus

According to a number of critics and users worldwide, the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is Samsung’s best creation so far. The S6 Edge Plus is, without a doubt, the ideal Android smartphone for people who don’t have a limited budget and who do not wish to settle for anything less than an outstanding performance and design.

Samsung has equipped the S6 Edge Plus with the fastest processor on the market, a 5.5-inch display with rounded edges, and one of the best camera phone cameras currently available. This device breathes high class, it’s extremely fast, and the only thing that could be criticized about it is located under its cover – that’s right, the battery’s weak capacity may present a slight problem.

Like we said – if budget is not an issue, we would warmly recommend the S6 Edge Plus to you.

The One with a Fantastic Camera: LG G4

There’s a lot to like about the LG G4: it’s comfortable to use, powerful, and offers a fantastic 16-megapixel camera with OIS and f/1.8 aperture – perfect for photography lovers. Unlike other flagships, the G4 actually comes with a replaceable battery and a slot for microSD card located right under its back cover, which is a definite plus. If you do decide to get an LG G4, you can be sure that it will not let you down: thanks to its large storage, you’ll have room for all of your photos and files, the bright display will make every video and Web browsing sessions flawless, and the fast Snapdragon 808 chipset will help each and every task run smoothly.

The Best Battery Performance: Sony Xperia Z3

If the battery life is the most important characteristic you are looking for in a smartphone, then look no further. Although officially released in 2014, the Sony Xperia Z3 is still considered to be one of the best handsets available in the world of Android. The reason for that is its long-lasting 3100mAh battery which promises up to two days of use! However, bear in mind that this phone has some issues of its own, such as a processor that often overheats and an unstable camera app.

The Biggest Smartphone Surprise: OnePlus 2

There are people who have no desire whatsoever to purchase one of the top smartphone models, which is why they are always searching for alternative handsets that will give them decent specs and performance at an affordable price. In the sea of smartphones this year appeared one such device – the OnePlus 2 – and surprised all of us.

We are talking about a smartphone with all the latest hardware found in all flagship devices, that blends a futuristic and a classic design seamlessly, thanks to its interchangeable back covers. Its specs include a Snapdragon 810 processor, clocked at 1.8GHz, 64GB of built-in storage, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, and a 13-megapixel main camera with optical image stabilization. Granted, the invite-only system of the OnePlus 2 is a bit awkward, but if you do decide to get it, you promise you that you won’t regret your decision.

Are you closer to making your decision now? Which phone would you choose?
