by Rahul DubeyDecember 6, 2013

Today our smartphones are no less than a Computer. They have powerful CPU, RAM, Graphics Processors and Quality Hardware. They are built not just for traditional calling and messaging but they can compete with computers now. And Android is the backbone for this mobile revolution. There are lots of great Android Phones which have everything you can expect and many things far from your expectations.

So, here I have complied a list of Best Android Phones which are launched and trending hot in the Indian market in 2013. Take a close look at these phones before buying, similar specifications might save you 10,000 bucks.

1. Sony Xperia Z1:

Currently, this is the best phone overall. It has amazing processor, excellent 20 MP Camera, best display with 1080 pixels. Sony Xperia Z1 can be chosen with closed eyes although, it can be heavy on your pocket but when you are getting world’s best smartphone, even renting the house won’t be a bad idea… :p

2. LG Nexus 5:

AMAZING!!!!! That’s the word which describes this phone from LG and Google. Comparing to Sony Xperia Z1 only its camera is less otherwise you can get just everything in 29,000 Rs. Its just unbelievable. And the best thing, you don’t have to wait for the new Android updates 🙂

This is Beast. A performance Beast. Take a look at its specifications, had you imagined 3 GB RAM on a phone 2 years earlier? It has the best hardware configuration which is far better than Samsung Galaxy S4. Seeing this phone, a thought comes in my mind, what the …. Samsung might be planning with Samsung Galaxy S5??

    hi iam very confused whether to buy htc E8,samsung note 3 and htc, desire 816 but i need a stuff like s pen in samsung but note 3 is not up to the mark (my opinon)

    • September 7, 2014 at 12:56 pm

      Hi, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is a good phone and the experience you will get with S pen is unique with the Note series and the phone offers good value for money now, when its available under 38,000 Rs. I don’t know why you are saying its not upto the mark but let me tell you that you will always find something bad about every phone. No phone is perfect and there will be many negative reviews about every phone, you might search for the 3 you have mentioned. I will suggest you to go with the Note 3 as it offers what you need. Or if you can spend some additional money, wait for a month and go with the improved Note 4.

    Hi Rahul,

    I want to buy an android phone at 15000 rupees. I am eager to buy Moto G as it is considered to be the best at this price.

    But my elder brother is saying that you cant get motorola parts and any service in India. if damaged. All service centres are closed (he had used motorola fire xt530 and cant replace the cracked screen till now).

    What do you think about this issue? Should I go for Samsung or Xperia mobiles now?

      My mistake not so friendly Iphone 5 eheheh

    • March 5, 2014 at 10:35 pm

      If price is not the issue for you, buy Nexus 5 the Android 4.4 Kitkat Music experience is very good and pure. Also the its awesome Full HD display will serve good video playback experience. But if you don’t want to spend that huge amount, you will get many good phones. Basically a good Android phone will do the job. In lower budget, buy Moto G which also comes with Android Kitkat.

    Hi Rahul,
    These were really the best smart phones that were launched in 2013. BTW I liked HTC one the most ;).

    • January 9, 2014 at 11:45 pm

      Hello Rajeev, Sony Xperia ZL is better.

      • Rajeev
        January 10, 2014 at 10:31 am

        my budget is below 30000 suggest some mobiles from samsung and sony…..i really confused……and which brand do you think much better???

        • January 11, 2014 at 11:49 pm

          In 30,000 Rs, I will suggest you only one phone.. close ur eyes and go buy Google Nexus 5. Its awesome.

          • Rajeev
            January 13, 2014 at 4:57 pm

            Yeah..but there was a opinion that for the camera, doesn’t worth to buy.You won’t suggest any other??????

          • January 14, 2014 at 2:39 pm

            There is surely an opnion that its camera is not what one exactly looks in a 30,000 phone but, If you look at the overall specifications, not buying this phone just for the sake of camera is not really a good idea.

            And if you want to go for other phones then take a look at Gionee Elife E7 otherwise its best to go with Sony Xperia ZL.
