Top 5 Android Phones of 2013

Top 5 Android Phones of 2013
News from Droid Life:

At the end of each year, it’s easy to find ourselves both looking back at all that happened over the past 12 months, trying to reflect on it, and then looking forward to what’s ahead. The “what’s ahead” is about to hit us with a right-cross in a couple of weeks when CES arrives, so I’d say that I’m still very much in the reflection stage at this point. Which brings me to this post and my thoughts on the top 5 Android phones of the year.

The year 2013 was filled with the most incredible smartphones the world has ever seen. 1080p displays became a standard (for the most part), cameras grew increasingly better, battery life is now measured in days instead of hours, customization was introduced, and prices may have started to decline across the board. Phone manufacturers also seem to have figured out winning formulas for the most part in terms of hardware, but only one still has the marketing side (or budget) on lock. All of that helped shape this list. 

And speaking of this list, it is 100% my opinion, an opinion I hope you are open to disagreeing with in the comments below. The whole point here is to spark conversation, so let’s get to it.

Rise of the ‘phoneix’: LG’s remarkable resurgence in 2013

Rise of the ‘phoneix’: LG’s remarkable resurgence in 2013
News from IBNLive:

New Delhi: “LG! Why would I even buy an LG phone?” is an oft repeated exclamation that many of us would have heard. Such disparaging remarks are indicative of many things that haven’t been quite right with the South Korean electronics giant in the smartphone scene. But 2013 has brought in the beginnings of the change in LG’s fortunes and also the perception of the brand in the minds of the Indian consumer.

Once upon a time LG too had a decent share of the smartphone market and then Samsung introduced its first Galaxy smartphone to take on the Apple iPhone back in 2010. The success of Samsung’s Galaxy phones altered the smartphone universe and left its competitors such as LG struggling build their smartphone stars that could shine bright in this new smartphone sky.

It was perhaps the hurry to counter the competition that had LG faltering. After the lukewarm response to its initial range of Android phones, LG attempted, some albeit not so successful, innovations. One was its 3D phones. The Optimus 3D in 2011 and the Optimus 3D Max in 2012 couldn’t take LG into the smartphone dimension it wanted to be in.

LG G Flex review: beyond the curved screen
News from Android Authority:

Smartphones don’t have to be flat. They don’t have to be rigid either. At least that’s what LG wants us to believe, and the G Flex is supposed to be the living proof of this radical concept.

Along with Samsung’s Galaxy Round, the LG G Flex is one of the first phones to feature a plastic-based display, the precursor to the much hyped truly flexible display. However, the G Flex’s design is arguably more radical than the Round’s and therefore probably a better embodiment of the technology. And LG’s curved phone packs a few more tricks that set it apart from any other device out there.

The G Flex may be futuristic, and it will definitely turn some heads when you whip it out in public. But, hopefully, you don’t buy phones just to stand out in the crowd. So, is the LG G Flex a great phone? When the novelty factor wears off, will you be pleased with its build quality, performance, and user experience? We try to answer these and more questions in our LG G Flex review.

Design and build quality

Leaving the curved shape aside for a minute, the G Flex is a large smartphone with a design and button layout that will definitely require some adjustment time. The 6-inch device may be too big for some users, and there’s no way around it, but if that doesn’t bother you, the good news is that G Flex is surprisingly easy to hold,…………… continues on Android Authority

2013 may be the year of the flexible screen

2013 may be the year of the flexible screen
News from Digital Trends:

The flexible smartphone screen may soon lose its science fiction status and become science fact, as Samsung and LG work hard on a new technology which could change the face of smartphone design in 2013.

Could 2013 bring with it one of the biggest revolutions in mobile phone design since the advent of the touchscreen? If the growing rumors surrounding flexible displays are true, and that one of the major manufacturers will release a device with a bendable screen next year, then yes, we could see the start of a huge trend. While flexible smartphone screens will be new to most of us, the technology has been around for some time, and is already in several devices; you just may not realize it.

A decade of hype

Reports of companies developing flexible displays date back more than a decade, with a startup named Universal Display being linked with their development in 2002. Universal Display is now at the forefront of rese…………… continues on Digital Trends

5-inch Full HD Phones from Huawei, LG, Samsung and Sony to Launch in 1H …
News from HardwareZone.com:

 

If 2012 is known as the year of smartphones with 4.7-inch displays, 2013 will be the year of 5-inch mobile devices. 

According to DigiTimes, industry sources claim that a number of phone makers are expected to roll out smartphone models with 5-inch full HD displays in the first half of 2013. While companies such as LG and Samsung are able to manufacture display panels in-house, other phone vendors can obtain supplies from Japan Display (JDI), Sharp or LG.

The latest report does not come as a surprise since a number of phone makers have announced devices or are alleged to be introducing phones with bigger displays. Taiwanese phone maker HTC currently leads the pack with the 5-inch Butterfly, which was announced last week.
