The best Android smartphones – November 2013

The best Android smartphones – November 2013

November is here and we rate Android smartphones right from the start. We have new devices and a brand new Android version. We will use our famous AVC rating method to show you the best Android smartphones for November 2013. Every month the numbers are changing and new phones are getting added.


There are some new phones added in our rating charts. This months the newbies are very interesting:

  • Google Nexus 5: the new Google phone is here and it has the latest Android version, Android 4.4 Kit Kat. So all other phones lose points because they have older Android versions. But is LG Nexus 5 the best phone?
  • LG G Flex: In October we had a flexible phone (Samsung Round) and in November we have another one, LG G Flex.
  • HTC One Max: The HTC phablet is impressive but is far from the first spot. That’s a pity.
  • LG G Pro Lite: A new cheaper Android phone with huge 5.5 inches screen.
  • Sony Xperia M: This is not a new phone but it was recently rated and added to our list.


We rate our phones with the best in each category. So Nexus 5 has the latest Android 4.4 version. Kit Kat is here and all the phones must be compared to the latest Android version. That’s why you can see all the phones lose points compared to the October rating.


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 (469PPI)
  • 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 (3GB)
  • Battery: The biggest battery can be found on Huawei Ascend Mate, it is 4050mAh
  • Android version: The latest Android version is 4.4 Kit Kat
  • 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.


The best device this month is still Samsung Galaxy Note 3 that lost 1.61 points and is on the first place with 72.1. It is followed by two Samsung devices, Samsung Galaxy S4 (68.7) and Samsung Galaxy Round (68.6). In October rating Round was second because it had more points than Samsung Galaxy S4 as it was a new device. One month later, Samsung Galaxy S4 got the second place as it has better specs.

The fourth place belongs to Nexus 5. It’s a new phone with the latest Android version so it has 67.3 points and is just 0.1 points ahead of Huawei Ascend P6 which has 67.2 and comes fifth. The next place belong to LG G2, one software rich device and the next two places belong to Sony with Sony Xperia Z1 and Sony Xperia Z.

The ninth place belong to LG and the flexible LG G Flex and the top 10 closes with another Sony device, the ultra slim Sony Xperia Z Ultra.
