There’s little doubt that that the next iPhone will be one of the best smartphones of the year. Every entry in Apple’s wildly popular series of smartphones has been lavished with praise from fans and critics. The next model is rumored to launch in the first half of 2013 and include NFC, as well as a variety of colors. Regardless of what Apple does or doesn’t include, the product is bound to sell millions.
Six months ago, it might have seemed blasphemous to include a Nexus device on a list of best smartphones. The first three entries in the series, after all, were met with mixed responses from critics and the public. Google really seems to have gotten it right with the Nexus 4, gathering positive reviews from the media and being seemingly unable to keep up with demand. Indeed, the Nexus 4 was a success in almost every aspect. In 2013, we’re hoping to see the Nexus 5 include LTE that functions right out of the box and options for more memory.
HTC One X Successor:
Galaxy Note III :
Samsung somehow manages to make the list twice. Although the originally Galaxy Note was intended to be a niche device only released in Europe, it surged in popularity when AT&T released it in the States. The Note II has been an even bigger success, both in terms of display and reception. It’s only logical that Samsung would release an improved one in 2013. Likely sporting a larger display and improved S Pen functionality, the Note III will continue to blur the line between smartphones and tablets. It will also test the limits of just how large of a device consumers are willing to carry around all day.
