Samsung Galaxy S4
This device is by far the best Android device Samsung has ever released. Even though the phone is not as smooth and as slick as the iPhone brand, Samsung Galaxy S4 is still in a class of its own. This latest edition in the Galaxy Universe is what forced other smartphone manufacturers to improve on their own devices. If it wasn’t for Samsung, iPhone would still be using their old 2 MP cameras.

In the beginning of November 2013, Google finally released the new Nexus 5 to the general public. This phone has everything you might want in a fifth generation smartphone but unlike other flagship devices, the Nexus 5 has a reduced, almost symbolic price.

Google had utilized the Android 4.4 ‘kit-cat’ OS to bring users the ultimate Android experience. It even pars, in terms of performance, with more expensive devices; such as- Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One, making this phone the “best value” cell phone for 2013.
