There are so many smartphone options right now that the biggest challenge is choosing the best device amidst all of the clutter. Here are the five best smartphones to buy right now (that are not the iPhone).
Motorola Droid Razr Maxx
Earlier this year, Motorola cracked the code with the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX. While the RAZR MAXX offers similar form and function to its pioneering pre-decessor, it packs
a much more powerful battery. Verizon and Motorola boast that the device, available for USD 199, offers the longest battery life of any Android smartphone. It is surprisingly slim, packs in 4G LTE capabilities, a dual-core processor and the ability to upgrade to the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.
Nokia Lumia 900
With an elegant design, 4.3-inch display and superb battery life, the Lumia 900 runs on the latest Mango 7.5 Windows software, which has a clean and simple interface. Among the pre-installed Nokia features are a free turn-by-turn navigation system, photo-editing application, and music streaming service. The phone can also access more than 100,000 third-party applications and can be purchased for USD 99.
BlackBerry Bold 9900
The best BlackBerry available today is the Bold 9900. It offers both a QWERTY keyboard and sharp, 2.8-inch touchscreen display. Battery life is solid, with more than six hours of talk time. The phone’s power-ful 1.2GHz processor will not leave you in the lurch, particularly when you are viewing or sending 720p HD videos.
HTC One X
After some financial setbacks, Taiwanese smartphone manufact-urer HTC is focusing on creating fewer devices of higher quality. The comp-any succeeded earlier this year with the launch of the HTC One series of Android phones. Available for USD 199, the HTC One X is a treat. It offers swift 4G LTE perform-ance with Beats Audio, a 4.7-inch 720p Super LCD HD screen, and an advanced 8MP rear camera.
Samsung Galaxy S III
While this cannot be technically bought yet, waiting just two weeks will be worth your while. Scheduled to be released later this month, Samsung’s flagship handset device sports a huge, 4.8-inch 720x1280 HD Super AMOLED display, offers 4G LTE capabilities, microSD storage, and a speedy 1.4GHz quad-core processor. Other features include S-voice natural language commands, eye-tracking, Dropbox cloud storage and smart alerts along with more than 500,000 apps available and ready on Google Play.
