The Top 5 Smartphones of 2014

The technology in smartphones continues to advance astronomically each year. Just when you think smartphones can’t get any better, something new and innovative is added to a new phone. Anyone looking to purchase a new smartphone in 2014 was definitely not disappointed. While almost every manufacturer released a great smartphone in 2014, these are the five best.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4

Samsung may get a lot of attention for the S series phones, but the Notes are actually their best product. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 featured the best display of any smartphone on the market thanks to a 5.7 inch high definition screen. Anyone that loves to play games or watch videos on their phone would not be disappointed.


The LG G3 was the perfect choice for someone looking something that was easy to use as a phone while also featuring a large beautiful display. An underrated feature of the G3 was the screen. While most smartphones are extremely susceptible to fingerprint smudges, that rarely occurs with the LG G3.

Motorola Moto X

Motorola proved they were ready to compete with the best smartphone manufacturers when they released the Moto X in 2014. The Motorola Moto X featured one of the fastest processors found in a smartphone at the time. This made it a great choice for anyone that spends a lot of time browsing the internet. Motorola also made several changes to the stock Android operating system that made this one of the easiest to use smartphones of 2014.


HTC had quietly producing some of the best smartphones on the market for years, but they took it to another level when they release the HTC One M8 in 2014. The aluminum frame helped make the HTC One M8 the best looking smartphone ever made at the time. The phone did not lack great features either. The impressive camera, BoomSound front-facing speakers and Sense software helped differentiate this phone for the other released in 2014.

Sony Xperia Z3

One of the most important features of a smartphone is battery life, and that is where the Sony Xperia Z3 separated itself from the rest of the smartphones released in 2014. While most people are charging their phones several times a day, anyone with a Sony Xperia Z3 could use their phone for a couple days without worrying about battery life. The phone was also extremely durable, which is ideal for anyone that tends to drop their phone regularly.
