It is unlikely to have another new big Android smartphone launch before the year ends. But this does not mean that there will be no impressive line-up of Android smartphones this 2013. Here are the top 5 best Android smartphones this 2013.

Google Nexus 5

Even before the Android 4.4.1 KitKat started rolling out for the Google Nexus 5, it is since been considered as the best Android smartphone in the market. Now that the Android KitKat had its update, the Nexus 5 has undoubtedly leveled up a notch higher once again.

The camera of the Nexus 5 is a bit short when it comes to shooting decent images and videos. However, the camera is only one of the features the Android smartphone has to offer. In fact, this smartphone is packed with impressive premier design, screen and vanilla Android. Not to mention that it is the cheapest high-end smartphone in the market today.


It is almost a year old but the HTC One maintains its glory and not showing a hint of its age. It is expecting to see more improvements from this HTC smartphone once it gets the Android 4.4 KitKat upgrade next year. The smartphone's commitment to software improvements makes this Android smartphone one of the best in the market. The high-quality metal design, speedy processor, Ultrapixel camera, impressive battery life and reasonable price tag are added feathers on its hat.

Samsung Galaxy S4

Similar to the HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S4 is nearing its first birthday already and soon it will be replaced by the Samsung Galaxy S5 as Samsung's flagship device. Nonetheless, the Galaxy S4 remains one of the best smartphones in the market.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is crafted to last and it definitely shows. As of today, its hardware remains topnotch and its software continues to get better. As soon as the Galaxy S4 takes a bite of the newest Android candy bar, 4.4 KitKat, it is expected to have a fresher and newer look to the device.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3

The Galaxy S4 is not the only stellar Samsung device in the market. The Galaxy Note 3 holds its weight, thanks to its raw power. While the Note 3 is a little bit bigger than any other Android smartphone in the market, its size delivers fantastic battery life and a wide array of pretty useful features. Not to mention that it is bundled with S Pen stylus that allows users to accomplish tons of task even at commute.

Motorola Moto X

The last spot is for the Motorola Moto X. It is relatively new compared to the other Android smartphones mentioned. Users are allowed to create their own Motorola Moto X design and it recently got the Android 4.4 KitKat which indicates Motorola's commitment to their device's software.
