Poll: What do you think is the best smartphone of 2013?

It seems that every year, smartphones are getting to be way more innovative and it’s hard to keep up with the flood of Android handsets being flung onto the market. Though there are many, only a select few can be found within the elite of the high-end phones, like the HTC One, Xperia Z1, Nexus 5 and LG G2, to name a few....but which one is the best?

    I'll give a new insight. Note 2 - I've had it since 2012 & didn't feel the urge to upgrade. I'm almost sure this feeling will last in 2014 even with the Note 3 & S5

    I'm a Note 2 owner, and I sure won't upgrade this year, or in the next 6-8 months. But if I would, then I would buy an LG G2 or a successor. I got one for my wife, and it's incredible. Screen is gorgeous, besels are minimal, battery performance is unsual in smartphone land, Snapdragon 800 is more than enough, camera with OIS is great. I saw most of the other phones, and tried some of them. HTC One is great aswell, and Note 3, but LG G2 is the best nowadays.

      Looking at the LG G2 specs I can say Galaxy Note 3 is better. Why? Because LG G2 has No memory card slot, only comes in 16/32GB models and has 2GB Ram. LG G2 Video Recording is 1080p @60fps and battery is Non-removable. Now for Galaxy Note 3....Supports memory card upto 64GB, comes in 32/64GB models and as Samsung user you get Free 50GB on Dropbox, Note 3 is first smartphone to have 3GB RAM, Video Recording is 4K@ 30fps & 1080p@60fps also the battery is 3200 mAh Removable. Both phones have same Snapdragon 800 Processor but Note 3 will be faster because of 3GB RAM. And what good is LG G2 a phablet phone with no S-pen.

    IPhone 5s best quality? come on this contest is the best smartphone, not best quality and if we are going to talk about quality I think the HTC ONE takes the cake here 👌

    Note 2 was released last Year...but I have to agree with Omri that it is one of the best!

    Hey!, @Jonathan, I agree with you, HTC One is the best quality Android smartphone as of 2013 BUT Apple is like an an exclusive family - it's like comparing a Rolex and a Tissot. Both are pretty good Swiss watches but craftsmanship and the brand name make Rolex all the more enviable. That was just an example. I know you would have seen Apple fans buying only Apple products year after year - that's just the Apple bug which bit them and who wouldn't pay extra for the Apple logo on the back of their smartphone?

    Nexus 5--and Moto G or Nexus 4 if they were choices--for breaking the trend that a smartphone has to be expensive to be good. It's like why does the Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla get car of the year if a Ferrari or Bentley can outdo them with impunity? Because they do a lot for very little. The S4 and Note 3 voters surely don't care as they've come across their phones under a contract, but your carrier robs you of money every month in order to cover those costs. Imagine if contracts were a thing of the past across the board, there'd be no reason to have such inflated costs...I hope other manufacturers follow suit with Google and undo what companies like Apple have done. If a laptop prices can halve, so can smartphones prices.

    schooling down the comments I realized that most of the people here still don't know about Oppo N1. should the knew, the would all probably comment about that phone.

  • Aznxking Dec 9, 2013 Link

    These are my last 2 years mobile history....Xperia Play, Galaxy S2, Iphone 5, Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2 and none were contracts all sim free. I will get Galaxy Note 3 sim free also. So not all Note 3 owners on contracts. Why i think Contract phones are not worth it... because nowadays all you need is internet data on phone then you have Whatsapp, Skype, Tango, Viber...you can do Free calls, Video calls, Messaging, Web browsing etc and on T-mobile Pay & Go it's only £20 for unlimited internet for 6 months so £40 a year.

    OK I gotta put this out there the note 2 was a 2012 device & galaxy S5 is not even released & won't be till 2014 so how can people say either is the best smartphone of 2013 if that's the case my Droid RAZR M & the Moto X2 are the best smartphones of 2013 LoL, seriously though I would have to vote moto X or Nexus 5 as the best of 2013

    OK, I have had a Galaxy S3 for a little over a year now and I still am discovering new ways to customize it and make it more useful. I love this phone!! However I will be looking to upgrade on the T-Mobile Jump program in February or March. The 5" screen is a sweet spot for me so I will be interested in the Galaxy S5, or whatever LG device might be coming out in that time frame. Additionally I am interested in a faster processor and definitely a beefier battery. I enjoy keeping up with the enhancements rumored for the Super phones, looking forward to 2014!!!

    I have an xperia z. I do not feel the need to root the phone. which makes a change, because it is my 5 android phone I have rooted all the others and tried to upgrade early. I would say I live this phone. but you can't live an object. lol so I think its ace.

    i am a galaxy s4 owner,to me it's the best feature rich smartphone,but the built quality and in this case battery is utter rubbish,no way you can justify that when you pay £500 for a phone and the battery becomes swollen after 2 months of use:/ i would say htc one and gs4 hold the first place,second goes to nexus 5
