Top 10 cell phones in 2012
If you want the best possible smartphone available, then you should have a look at the top 10 cell phones of 2012. Again, I have looked around and found some top site that named there top 10 cell phones of 2012 and here they are.
Samsung Galaxy S2
Michael Sawh of Techradar made a clear and outstanding article found here: http://www.techradar.com/news/phone-and-communications/mobile-phones/10-best-touchscreen-phones-for-2012-905572/1#articleContent
He had the Samsung Galaxy S2 still in his top 10 and this is what he had to say:
“The Galaxy brand has restored our faith in Samsung’s ability to make great phones, and with Google’s Android OS and some impressive touchscreen technology, the S2 continues that trend.
Housed within a supremely slender form, the 4.27-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen is an ideal surrounding for viewing your 8-megapixel snaps.
Running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and packing a 1.2Ghz dual-core Exynos processor ensures there is plenty of zip for your web browsing and with eye-popping colours it’s perfect for watching a plethora of video formats on the go.”
The fact that they still have this Samsung model in there top 10 cell phones of 2012 show me that this smartphone is still amongst the best! Although the hardware is not that of the newest models of 2012 it still has that unique look and nice hardware specifications. The Super AMOLED Plus display looks very nice and the 8 MP camera creates beautiful snaps. It even got Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update one week after the Samsung Galaxy S3.
Apple iPhone 5
I found on omgtoptens.com an impressive and professional article made by Mayank Dassani found here: http://omgtoptens.com/technology/top-10-best-upcoming-mobile-phones-2012-2013/
He had this to say about this newest smartphone of 2012:
“The Most awaited phone this year is easily The Apple iPhone 5, iPhone 5 would get a bigger 4″ display and a more powerful Processor. iPhone 5 will offer 4G and it will be LTE network compatible. The camera of iPhone 5 will be amazingly powerful 8MP dual led flash. Its storage capacity will be boosted up to 64 gb. Its new iOS 6 is expected to have a digital music locker. The price of iPhone 5 factory unlocked version is expected to start with $699. This Soon to be launched iPhone is for sure the best phone designed ever by Apple.
We hope the information provided in the article is sufficient for all the readers to choose which phone are they targeting next. So be ready for some amazing pieces to be added on in the market. Comments on the article are welcomed. Any queries related to the article will be entertained.”
Indeed, the iPhone 5 is one of the top 10 cell phones that have been hyped before it was released. It would get a bigger screen and quad-core and NFC support. None of these rumours where true unfortunately, but this doesn’t matter for the real Apple fans. The body look similar to the iPhone 4 but there is nothing wrong with this. If you are a fan of Apple then you will have a great product with the iPhone 5, if you would purchase it.
Samsung Galaxy S3
On darkforestgroup.com I found a nice article about this great smartphone here: http://darkforestgroup.com/2012/08/31/best-top-10-mobile-phones/
“Despite the recent quarrel with Apple, Samsung still is the king of smartphones with its latest Galaxy S3 handset. The internal storage goes all the way up to 64GB it also hosts the currently fastest CPU on a smartphone – the 1.4GHz Cortex-A9. The design is a bit different from what we are used to, but amazing nonetheless. And just like the HTC One X it’s a pretty damn large phone, therefore sometimes may require two hands to operate.
The king of the Best Top 10 Mobile Phones starts its price from around $610 (fully unlocked). Comparing this with the prices of the other handsets from the top 10 list, this phone is the absolute leader. It delivers all of the features and more for a balanced price. This phone should be able to cope with any near future Android OS updates (including the Jelly Bean update) and shouldn’t have any difficulties at all running your applications.
We really recommend this phone for everyone and anyone, whether old or young, it is pretty easy to use. But still think whether you are going to use all the functionality that the device has to offer, since it is quite pricey and there are cheaper alternatives to be considered.”
I agree with them that the Samsung Galaxy S3 is the king of smartphones even if you compare it to the recent iPhone 5. The internal storage is the best you can get, the screen is massive and looks stunningly and the CPU is the new rapid quad-core processor. The design (I agree) looks a bit different if you compare it to the HTC One X. Therefore, I recommend this smartphone to every person (young and old) although it is expensive. It has all the features you will ever need and there for it is in my view one of the top 10 cell phones of 2012.
HTC One X
I found a short but informational article with specifications made by Fraakz found here: http://www.fraakz.com/top-10-mobile-phones-ranking-2012.html
He had this to say:
“Probably the pick of the year from HTC Phones, this handset offers almost all the latest features but still lags behind Samsung Galaxy S 3 when it comes to elegance and style. Display Type: Super IPS LCD2 Capacitive Touchscreen, 16M colors Display Screen: 720 x 1280 pixels, 4.7 inches Operating System: Android OS, v4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) Memory: 32 GB (26 GB user-available) storage, 1 GB RAM Processor: Quad-core 1.5 GHz, LED flash, Camera: 8 MP, 3264×2448 pixels, Auto-Focus”
It is the best HTC smartphone you can buy right now. Some prefer it above the Samsung Galaxy S3 although I think the body is superior to the Galaxy S3 because it is made of polycarbonate; however, the S3 is the better smartphone (in my opinion). It has a powerful quad-core and comes standard with Android 4.0 (like the Galaxy S3) and therefore it is one of the top 10 cell phones of 2012.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2
K.T. Bradford of digitaltrends.com made a complete and professional article with some very high-res pictures of his top 10 cell phones, which I found here: http://www.digitaltrends.com/cell-phone-reviews/samsung-galaxy-note-2-review/
His introduction said:
“The Galaxy Note 2 steps up its game, offering a super sized Android experience and a larger display without adding bulk. Add to that an improved S Pen experience and a few tricks learned from the Galaxy S3 and you have a tempting, if huge, package.
When Samsung first debuted the Galaxy Note smartphone, there were plenty of detractors who said that the device was too big to be a phone and no one wanted a stylus, anyway. Throughout the past year, the Note has proven the exact opposite to the tune of millions sold. Now the Note is back for a second act, sporting an even bigger display and some new tricks.
If big phones are not your thing, then the Note 2 is not going to convince you otherwise. However, for those who want a phone at this size, the new Note is out to make you forget the old one and all those pretenders that sprang up in its wake. Even better, it’s launching on all four major mobile carriers and U.S. Cellular, so you don’t have to switch to get your hands on one.”
This smartphone has the biggest dimension of all smartphones (5.5-inch) and has a special S Pen, which can be used to write or to point things out on the touch-screen. Personally, I am a big fan of this smartphone because I like big displays combined with powerful hardware. If you’re not a fan of big displays then this one is not your cup of thee, but it is definitely amounts the top 10 cell phones of 2012.
