Speaking about the best Android smartphones in the market today, I personally choose the new Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One. Both of these high-end smartphones offer some amazing specs and will easily outperform the best smartphones from 2012. In case you’re not familiar with both handsets, the Galaxy S4 is manufactured by Samsung Electronics (South Korean multinational electronics company headquartered in Suwon, South Korea) and was announced in New York City on March 14, 2013 as the successor to the Samsung Galaxy S III. The handset was made available in late April 2013 on 327 networks worldwide and in 155 countries. Meanwhile, the One is developed by HTC Corporation (formerly High Tech Computer Corporation, a Taiwanese manufacturer of smartphones and tablets headquartered in new Taipei City, Taiwan) and serves as HTC’s flagship device for 2013, and as a successor to HTC’s 2012 flagship phone, the One X. The handset was released in late March, with its release date in certain markets (such as Asia and North America) pushed as far back as April.
Claimed as the world’s best selling Android smartphone, the Galaxy S4 comes with a 5.0-inch 1920 x 1080 Full HD Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display (441 pip pixel density), a 1.9GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, an Adreno 320 GPU, a 2GB RAM, a 16GB/32GB/64GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot (up to 64GB), a micro-SIM card slot, dual cameras (2MP front-facing camera with 1080p Full HD video recording & 13MP rear-facing camera with 1080p Full HD video recording), GPS with A-GPS support and GLONASS, NFC, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, a mono rear-mounted speaker, a 2600mAh battery and runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS.
On the other hand, the HTC One sports a 4.7-inch 1920 x 1080 Super LCD3 capacitive touchscreen display (469 pip pixel density), a 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, an Adreno 320 GPU, a 2GB RAM, a 32GB/64GB of internal storage, a micro-SIM card slot, dual cameras (2.1MP front-facing camera with 1080p Full HD video recording & 4MP Ultrapixel rear-facing camera with 1080p Full HD video recording), GPS with A-GPS support and GLONASS, NFC, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, dual front-mounted speakers, a 2300mAh battery and runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean OS (upgradable to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS).
Looking at the specifications above, both the Galaxy S4 and HTC One are definitely two of the best Android smartphones available in the market today.
