For the past couple of years smartphones have become the main staple of technology,besides the obvious the computer,the smartphone is our connective gateway for gathering information. Its safe to say the smartphone today can be reclassified as an official handheld computing device.
In 2014 we've witnessed smartphones advance in both hardware and image capturing. There is also a significant improvement in both Android and iOS mobile operating systems.
With that said,it's rather hard to come up with the best smartphone in 2014,the Lebron James of smartphones,which smartphones gets the best tech award 2014, I mean there were so many great smartphones that graced the market this year. So being the impartial guy that I am, I had to categorize the award into the best smartphone camera,hardware,design and display. The Teksepecz 2014 best tech award,let's go.
The Best Smartphone Design 2014: HTC ONE M8
The HTC One M8 pretty much set the standard as to how smartphones are suppose to be design, in fact HTC are the first smartphone manufacturers to successfully pull off an all metal chassis with the HTC One two years prior. Then we have those speakers, not only are they the best sounding speakers on any smartphone,but all manufacturers should mimic the speaker placement,which is front facing,top and bottom.
The Best Smartphone Camera 2014: iPhone 6-Plus
This indeed was a tough one because there are a couple of smartphones on the market who really stepped it up in the camera department this year, the Galaxy Note 4, Xperia Z and the iPhone 6-Plus have great cameras that all take gorgeous pictures. Though the Note 4 and Xperia Z have more pixels , I have to give this award to the iPhone 6-Plus. I mean you can probably make a case for the iPhone 5S being the best picture taking smartphone on the market, Apple just gets it right in this category. The iPhone 6-Plus has the ability to capture crisp clean sharp images even in a low light environment,it has a near perfect image stabilization technology that's probably the best in any smartphone.
The Best Overall Hardware In a Smartphone 2014: Samsung Galaxy Note 4
The Note 4 is probably the best smartphone Samsung has ever produced to date, why? Its that hardware man. The Note 4 has a superior collective piece of hardware all assimilated into one device. It has a super fast 2.7GHz quad-core processor,3GB of internal memory (RAM), 32GB of storage with an additional 128GB of microSD storage. Don't get me started with the additional 16 MP camera and a very bright Super AMOLED display that measures 2560 x 14450 resolution. Put all of these pieces of awesome hardware together, and you have the makings of a supreme smartphone.
The Best Smartphone Display 2014: LG G3
The LG G3 has the best display on any smartphone period,yeah I know the intro to this passage was a bit lame and dramatic but seriously,the LG G3 has one of those displays that will have you gazing for hours without blinking your eyelids.
