Smartphones NOT Manufactured By Apple

Introduction:Not everyone likes the phones from Cupertino

  • 01

    HTC One

    In a crowded, noisy field of large screen slabs, the HTC One stands atop the heap. It is very difficult for manufacturers of Android phones to stand out because there are so many of them. HTC hits a home run with the One. This phone has incredible build quality, with a stunning aluminium unibody design. Nothing cheap on this device.

  • 02

    Samsung Galaxy S4

    It's the flagship phone that almost everyone thinks of (alongside iPhone) when they hear the term smartphone. The GS4 has a dizzying array of features, great hardware to back it up and the marketing muscle to actually put it into customers' hands. The problem is, this phone isn't enough of an upgrade over the Galaxy S III to justify the difference in sticker price.

  • 03

    Blackberry Q10

    The darkhorse in the field gets a surprising nod very high on this list. Despite the negative headlines about the company, the Q10 is the top phone on the market (with a physical QWERTY keyboard). It also is one of the best-constructed smartphones you can buy. The software uses an innovative way of navigating that takes some patience to learn, but once you get the hang of it, all tasks get accomplished faster than on competing devices.

  • 04

    Nokia Lumia 920'S

    There are four major software platforms that power smartphones these days: Apple's iOS, Google's Android, BlackBerry 10 and Windows Phone 8. This one runs Windows Phone. It's a really fun, yet functional operating system that is very easy to use and quickly catches your eye. Nokia's hardware is really slick, using high-quality materials that still manage to keep its phones at a lower price than its comparable competition.

    Motox By Motorola

    Motorola took a year off after Google bought the company's mobile division and emerged this year with its flagship Moto X. It is a gorgeous device that feels great in the hand and performs incredibly well. It probably deserves a higher spot on this list, but it's a crowded field and this phone is so new that most people haven't even seen one in person yet.

    Google pulled out all the stops for this one, but keeps costs down. It is shaped to comfortably fit in your hand, unlike the much sharper-edged iPhone. While it doesn't have bleeding-edge specs under the hood, this phone performs with the best of them, including some great features that a lot of people will enjoy. The Google Now voice activation integration is a killer feature that gives Siri a real run for her money. Oh, and the battery is projected to last 24 hours straight. There isn't an official independent mixed-use test of this claim, but it stands up well to some really hardcore battery drain tests, so it probably isn't too far off the mark.




Final Thoughts

This is just my 2 cents, but in my opinion in 6 months the MotoX could be a lot higher on this list
