LG G3
1

LG G3

Best Android flagship smartphone from LG. The LG G3 offers the best screen of all flagship Android phones today. It has unique design elements like the power/wake-up button placement at the back, slimmest bezels offering best screen-to-bezel ratio. All this is backed up by top-of-the-line Qualcomm SoC to ensure buttery smooth performance.

Sony Xperia Z3

Sony Xperia Z3

The best Sony Android smartphone to buy today. The Sony Xperia Z3 impressed us with its top of the line performance, rugged yet premium build quality and advanced imaging capabilities. Sony Xperia Z3 has the brightest screen of all smartphones available in the market. The Z3 came very close to being the top Android smartphone to buy in India, if only Sony had priced the Xperia Z3 more sensibly.

HTC One M8

HTC One M8

The HTC One M8 is the best looking Android phone to buy today. The device has a premium build and feel to it. The One M8 packs in latest generation of hardware and offers HTC Sense UI on top of Android to differentiate itself from other Android flagship phones.

Motorola Moto X (2nd Gen)
4

Motorola Moto X (2nd Gen)

The Motorola Moto X is the best Android smartphone for Android purists wanting stock Android experience on a premium smartphone. With the Moto X you get the benefits of getting latest Android updates as soon as they are released by Google. The Moto X would have been our top recommendation for an Android smartphone, if only it came with the option to expand memory. Currently the Moto X is limited to 16GB of storage.

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact
5

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact

The Sony Xperia Z3 compact is the mini version of the Sony Xperia Z3 with the same core hardware as the Z3 packed in a smaller body. The Xperia Z3 has a smaller- 4.6" screen instead of the 5.2" screen on the Xperia Z3. The smaller screen and reduced bezels allow the Z3 compact to be a whole lot manageable in terms of one-handed operation. The Sony Xperia Z3 is the best Android smartphone option for buyers looking for a phone that goes against the current trend of big screen phones, offering flagship performance in a deliciously compact form factor.

HTC One E8

HTC One E8

The HTC One E8 is a slightly more affordable version of the HTC One M8. The E8 offers a slim poly carbonate shell instead of the metal body in the One M8. Another area where the E8 is different is the imaging engine, the E8 has a single 13MP camera instead of the dual 4MP ultra-pixel cameras found in the HTC One M8. We found the HTC One E8 one heck of a bargain in terms of retaining the core performance of the HTC One M8 while costing 8-10K lesser. Also, the poly-carbonate body on the HTC One E8 actually feels as premium as the HTC One M8 in terms of finish and build, just that it ain't metal!

Samsung Galaxy S5
7

Samsung Galaxy S5

The Samsung Galaxy S5 is the best Samsung Android smartphone to buy today. The 1080p Super AMOLED screen on the Samsung S5 offers vivid colors and excellent contrast. Though the colors do appear to be amplified to make them more pleasing and aren't natural.

LG Nexus 5
8

LG Nexus 5

The LG Nexus 5 is the best Android phone recommendation for stock Android fans. Apart from the pure Android experience, the Nexus 5 also gets the advantage of receiving the latest Android updates directly from Google.

Oppo Find 7a
9

Oppo Find 7a

The Oppo Find 7a is well priced and offers the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC with 2GB RAM. The Find 7a has some unique tricks up its sleeve, offering a 50MP mode with its 13MP camera.

Xiaomi Mi3
10

Xiaomi Mi3

The Xiaomi Mi3 offers Nexus 5 specifications for half the price. Apart from its pricing, the Xiaomi Mi3 also has a very unique UI, called the MiUI. MiUI is one of the most polished and pleasing Android UI options that we have come across. The only real (and big) issue with the Xiaomi Mi3 is the availability and relatively thin service and support network.
