The best Android smartphones – October 2013

The best Android smartphones – October 2013

October is a new month and we rate the Android smartphones right from the start. All the new devices compared with the old ones. We use our famous AVC rating method to get the best Android phones. Every month the numbers change as new phones have new killer specs (better cameras, thinner design, more RAM) and some devices are getting older and older while other newer come to the market. So we need to re-rate the phones from scratch every month. Right now on our site, the specs rating pages show the rating of the phone the date it was rated. But this cannot be enough as time goes by and new phones and specs are coming to the market. So every month we are going to do the same job, re-rate all the phones comparing them to the best of the market and publish them to a post and the Best Android phones page.


Right now the best of the market are as following:

Width: The most slim device is Huawei Ascend P6 with 6.2mm
Weight: The most light device is HTC Desire C with 100g
Screen PPI: The screen with the most pixels per inch belong to HTC One
Main camera: The best camera right now is on Nokia Lumia 1020 (not an Android phone)
Front camera: The best front camera is on Huawei Ascend P6, a 5MP camera
Processor: The fastest phone is Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with an octa core processor
RAM: The phone with the biggest RAM is Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Battery: The biggest battery can be found on Huawei Ascend Mate, it is 4050mAh
Android version: The latest Android version is 4.3
Release Date: The newer the phone is, the best for us.
Our View: We also have a personal rating that is one of the 11 ratings

So the best Android phone would be a phone with all these specs launching in the market right now. That’s how we rate our devices. So let’s see the final ranking.


Right now the best device on the Android market is Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (73.7) followed by Samsung Galaxy Round (70.2) and Samsung Galaxy S4 (70.1). It’s really amazing to see three Samsung devices taking the 3 top spots. These devices are really powerful with quad or octa core processors and 3GB of RAM. There are not a lot of devices with 3GB of RAM so that’s a new spec best.

The device in the fourth place is Huawei Ascend P6 (68.6), a device that set new standards in the width with 6.2mm. It’s difficult to find a device that slim on the market. Only Sony Xperia Z Ultra can compete with 6.5mm.

The fifth place is for Sony Xperia Z1 (66.8). Sony has launched a lot of great devices recently but Sony Xperia Z1 is the best right now. LG comes sixth with LG G2 (66.1) being a great choice. LG G2 is followed by 2 Sony devices, Sony Xperia Z (61.1) and Sony Xperia Z Ultra (60.1) and then we can find HTC One (59.4). The top10 is closed by ZTE Grand Memo (59.2), a great device by the low budget Chinese super power.
