Iphone 5s

The Iphone 5S is a smartphone which is developed by Apple inc. It was released on semtember 20,2013. iPhone 5S is supplied with iOS 7 which is featured as refined typography, new icons, translucency, layering, physics, and gyroscope-driven parallaxing as some of the major changes to the design. The phone can act as a hotspot, sharing its Internet connection over Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or USB, and also accesses the App Store, an online application distribution platform for iOS developed and maintained by Apple. The service allows users to browse and download applications that were developed with Xcode and the iOS SDK and were published through Apple. The iPhone’s minimal hardware user interface features five buttons. The only physical menu button is situated directly below the display, and is called the “Home button” because it closes the active app, accesses Touch ID, and navigates to the home screen of the interface. The home button on iPhone 5S incorporates a fingerprint recognition system known as Touch ID, based on technology from AuthenTec. iPhone 5S is powered by the new Apple A7 system-on-chip, which the company claimed was the first 64-bit processor ever used on a smartphone. The phone includes a 1560 mAh battery, which provides 10 hours of talk time and 250 hours of standby time.

2. Samsung Galaxy S5

Samsung Galaxy S5

On 11 April 2014 Samsung company has released a new generation of Galaxy which is called Galaxy S5 . Unlike past models, the S5’s rear cover uses a higher quality soft plastic and is dimpled to improve grip. The S5 is IP67 certified for dust resistance, and for water resistance in up to 1 metre (3.3 ft) of water for up to 30 minutes; as such, the S5’s Micro-USB 3.0 port uses a removable cover.Inside the Galaxy S5 is the kind of high-end specs you’d want to find in a flagship. Like rival devices, the handset has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor which is quad-core but clocked a little higher at 2.5GHz. This is accompanied by a now standard 2GB of RAM, although a handful of devices do have more. The Galaxy S5 is available in either 16- or 32GB capacities, although it seems to be a classic situation where the larger of the two is like a super rare Pokémon. A microSD card supporting up to 64GB is almost a given nowadays but the Galaxy S5 can take double that at 128GB. Like other Samsung smartphones, the Galaxy S5 also offers 50GB of free Dropbox cloud storage. A key hardware addition is a fingerprint scanner. It’s keeping up with the Jones’ here since the iPhone 5s has one. The Galaxy S5’s is also built into the home button but you have to swipe your finger across it. You can register up to three fingerprints and need to set a backup password because there’s a five attempt limit on using your paws to unlock the device.

3. Nokia Lumia 930

Nokia Lumia 930

Nokia Lumia 930

To compete with the iPhone and Android handsets, Windows Phone has had to up its game on the hardware front. Over time it has done this and there’s a lot to like on this front with the Lumia 930. The Lumia 930 is a strong phone in both design and power, although a little last-gen on the latter element, and coupled with a very capable camera, is a phone that’s easy to recommend to those looking for something different. For its design , it came up with the combination of a metallic rim and polycarbonate. The lighter grey exterior has a very Scandinavian feel to it, and combines well with the brighter colours . Nokia’s camera heritage has been a mainstay of the mobile phone for nearly a decade now, since the decision to stick a snapper on the back of a handset.With Pureview Nokia’s really owning this space, with the Lumia 1020 still arguably the best camera-on-a-phone out there (not the best cameraphone, as what’s running underneath is sub par). Nokia’s Lumia 930 is a good poster boy for this, and the combination of power and design gives a good experience under the finger

4. Sony Xperia Z2

Sony Xperia Z2

Sony Xperia Z2

Sony has made the Z2 thinner (8.2mm from 8.5mm) and lighter though and, in a way, makes it feel smaller. On the spec sheet it’s only 7g down to 163g but somehow it feels like more. It comes in black, white and purple options and is once again dust and waterproof. Something we’re now very accustomed to with Sony’s phones. It’s been a fairly unique feature but the Samsung Galaxy S5 now offers the same. The screen is a little larger at 5.2in and It still has a Full HD resolution, like other 2014 flagship rivals, which means the pixel density has dropped slightly but it’s not really noticeable – 423ppi is more than respectable. It still has Sony’s Triluminos and X-Reality technologies and a new one called Live Colour LED which Sony says increases colour depth and gradation. The Xperia Z2 being the first smartphone we’ve seen with the quad-core processor which is clocked at 2.3GHz and is backed up by a whopping 3GB of RAM. Its storage is only offering 16GB of internal storage with the Xperia Z2. Luckily, there is a microSD card for adding up to 64GB more storage. The Xperia Z2 is packed with the latest wireless technology so you’ll be sorted with dual-band Wi-Fi up to 11ac, Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX, NFC and 4G LTE are all on-board. However, if you’re looking for feartures such as an infrared transmitter or wireless charging then you’ll have to look elsewhere. The Xperia Z2 also comes with digital noise-cancelling which cuts out background noise – great for travelling on trains and planes or just noisy environments.

5. LG G3

LG G3

LG G3

The LG G3 is just 8.9mm which means it’s thinner than the G2 going by LG’s 9.1mm or our own 9.4mm measurement. Either way it’s impressive considering the extra tech that is squeezed in. At 75 x 146mm in size, the G3 is a large phone due to its bigger screen size compared to its predecessor and other flagship devices. A major design change is the introduction of metal. For starters, there’s a brushed metal frame running around the edge which separates the front from the back. The LG G3 has a 5.5in display (a little larger than the G2’s 5.2in) and so the handset has a massively high pixel density of 534ppi (538ppi according to LG). The previous record holder was the original HTC One with 469ppi. The LG G3’s screen looks absolutely stunning . LG says the display is comparable to a high-quality photo book. Everything on the screen is super crisp; no matter how hard you try, you just cannot see an individual pixel. Living up to its name, the G3 has 3GB of RAM but only if you buy the 32GB, the 16GB model has 2GB. The software is designed for 2GB so the extra on the 32GB device simply gives headroom. The G3 is available with 16- or 32GB of internal storage. It seems more and more smartphone vendors are ditching higher capacity 64GB models . The LG G2 was the first smartphone to come with 24bit/192kHz audio playback, pleasing audiophiles. Well now the G3 includes a 1Watt speaker with a ‘boost amp’ to improve sound quality when headphones aren’t plugged in. It’s impressively loud but the down side is that the speaker is rear facing and mono, not stereo.

6. HTC OneM8

HTC OneM8

HTC OneM8

HTC puts design first and you can certainly tell that with the M8 in your hand. It feels like a premium smartphone which is something Samsung has failed to achieve, in our opinion, with the Galaxy S5. The new HTC One is ergonomic, but also sturdy. A larger screen (see hardware, below) means that the phone is both taller and wider than its predecessor – predominantly taller – but it doesn’t feel too large in the hand. It’s also a few grams heavier at 160g compared to 143g, making it one of the weightier flagship smartphones but again, it doesn’t feel overly weighty. Instead it has that reassuringly heavy feel to it. With Sense 6.0 the camera app has had a redesign and we like the stylish and minimalist approach. It’s easy to use but there are plenty of settings to play with if you’re feeling adventurous. They’re easy to find if you’re looking for them. HTC splits the camera app into different modes with the front camera even labelled as ‘selfie’. The back of the HTC One M8 is home to two camera lenses. HTC calls this the Duo Camera and it’s one of the main new features of the smartphone. According to HTC, the ImageChip 2 means the camera can shoot faster and capture sharper images. And this seems to be true from our preliminary tests. The M8 can record video in Full HD, not 4K. HTC’s Zoe (now an separate app for automatically editing video) has had an update with more of a social . A cool feature which we’ve not seen elsewhere is the ability to not only manually adjust settings, such as ISO, but then save them as presets to use later. This means you can come up with your own modes for different situations.

7. Sony Xperia Z1

Sony Xperia Z1

Sony Xperia Z1

The reason for the Xperia Z1 putting on a few pounds, as it were, may be due to some hardware upgrades. The phone still has a decent 2 GB of RAM but has a new Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. It’s a quad-core processor with an impressive clock speed of 2.2 GHz, the highest we’ve seen on a smartphone to date. With Krait 400 cores and the latest Adreno 330 GPU, it’s no surprise that the Z1 flourished in our benchmarks. The Z1 is out new record holder in Geekbench 2 with a score of 3673, beating the Samsung Galaxy S4’s 3227.Its screen size is the same as the Xperia Z as is therefore a large 5 inches with a Ful HD resolution. That’s 1920 x 1080 creating a pixel density of 441 ppi meaning it’s still up there with the best. Storage remains at 16 GB and there’s still a microSD card slot, this time support for 64 GB off the bat. The Xperia Z1 has all the mod-cons you’d expect such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC and support for 4G LTE networks. Some rivals have TV controlling infrared transmitters though, and we’re still waiting for wireless charging to be a standard feature in flagship phones. Sony prides itself on its photography and the Xperia Z1 has had an upgrade in this department. Its resolution has jumped from 13 Mp to 20.7 Mp making it the highest resolution on an Android smartphone, according to Sony. The camera boots up quickly, even from sleep by holding down that dedicated key. The snapper focuses quickly and accurately most of the time, too. The resolution of the front camera has dropped slightly to 2 Mp but can still capture 1080p video and the quality is excellent. The Xperia Z1 is running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean but will no doubt be updated to 4.3 and 4.4 KitKat in the future. The Sony Xperia Z1 comfortably lasts a day of regular use, and then struts through a second. We’re pleased with this performance, which has only been matched recently by the iPhone 5C.

8. Oneplus

Oneplus

Oneplus

One nitial impressions are good. Very good. The OnePlus is well put together, and made of what feels like high-quality materials. A big, understated slab of black, look closer and you will find subtle curves. There’s a chrome outer rim surrounding the large glass display, which is slightly raised beyond the rest of the handset. For the record the OnePlus One measures 153 x 76 x 8.9 mm and weighs in at 162 g. It’s neither the thinnest nor the lightest big-screen smartphone on the market, but it feels good in the hand. Solid, but ergonomic. The whole phone is built around the display. It’s a 5.5in IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display boasting 16M colours. The resolution is impressive: not the best on the market, but plenty good enough at the best at this price. Spread over 5.5 inches, 1080 x 1920 pixels makes for a pixel density of 401 ppi. There are two storage options for the OnePlus One phone, and one big disappointment. The options are 16GB and 64GB – strangely no 32GB but it’s becoming very rare to see 64GB on offer outside of the iPhone. The OnePlus One has a 13 Mp Sony Exmor camera, with dual LED flash, and f/2.0 aperture. The OnePlus One runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat, which is a sufficiently recent version to be great. The interesting aspect is that you can install CyanogenMod themes that allow you to build your own skin for your smartphone. Choosing a specific theme allows you to tweak app icons and system fonts, your wallpaper, lock screen and so on. You can also specify changes to the way your smartphone works. The OnePlus One comes with a large Li-Po 11.8Wh (3100 mAh) battery cell.

9. Amazon Fire Phone

Amazon Fire Phone

Amazon Fire Phone

The Fire Phone’s 1,280x720p HD screen isn’t as high-resolution as other handsets with 1080p HD or quad HD displays, but it has a respectable 315ppi pixel density. I really had to strain my eyes to see much difference between the Fire Phone and HTC One M8 when comparing 4K wallpaper and zoomed-in lettering. The screen lock button sits up top and the Micro-USB charger lives down below; the lens to the right of the Fire Phone’s speaker grille serves up selfies, and the camera on the phone’s back has a sidekick in an LED flash. A sealed device, there’s no popping off the back cover, but 32GB of internal storage (with a 64GB optional upgrade for $750) is more than enough for most. Maps and certain games (like To-Fu Fury and Saber’s Edge) also include the shifting graphics, as do browser pages you can autoscroll as you tilt the phone up and down. In the camera, Dynamic Perspective appears in the “lenticular” camera mode, piecing together multiple photos of a scene into a moving image that resembles a jerky hologram or GIF. Amazon adds in perks like X-Ray, which does things like gives you song lyrics in the right-hand menu, and Miracast syncing that lets you watch stuff from the Fire Phone on any other compatible device, say the PlayStation or Amazon Fire TV. Amazon keeps camera options spare on the 13-megapixel shooter, letting you swap between front and rear cameras for videos and stills, ignite the flash, and turn on HDR, panorama, and lenticular modes.

10. Google Nexus 5S

Google Nexus 5S

Google Nexus 5S

The Nexus 5 has simple and understated style – none of the spangled glass rear cover of the Nexus 4 that divided opinions and made the phone slide off anything you put it on. The Nexus 5 is up there with the best with, at its core, the impressively speedy Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chip which is inside a few other flagship Android smartphones. The phone has 2GB of RAM and an Adreno 330 GPU. The Nexus 4 was hindered by its lack of storage. The device only came in 8- or 16GB models with no microSD card slot. Google has made sensible decision of doubling these capacities to 16- and 32GB. The display was an area where the Nexus 4 was a little off the pace. The Nexus 5, on the otherhand, has a 5in (4.95 to be precise) Full HD IPS screen which is common for a top-end smartphone at the moment. That 1080 x 1920 resolution results in a high pixel density of 445ppi. The Nexus 5 is well-rounded in terms of connectivity, even if it doesn’t have an infrared transmitter for controlling your TV like a few rival devices. It’s got dual-band Wi-Fi with the latest 802.11ac standard, Bluetooth 4.0 low energy and GPS. Another flaw of the Nexus 4 that the Nexus 5 rectifies is support for 4G LTE networks. The device supports all current and upcoming 4G networks. The camera is fairly good, but other flagship smartphones outpace it on levels of detail and exposure. The Nexus 5 takes its best photos using the HDR+ mode which is switched off by default. Video quality isn’t as good as we’d hoped with a lower amount of detail than we’re used to at the maximum 1080p. At 8.5Wh, the battery inside the Nexus 5, which is non-removable, is smaller than a lot of other flagship smartphones. We found battery life to be mediocre, with just a day of regular use from the Nexus 5 before needing a charge. Only very light users will get any more life out of this smartphone.
