Em 2013 These were some of the finest Android smartphones you could buy, at a time when Bitcoin reached $1000 for the first time in Portugal, when Instagram was a relative novelty. There was also no Playstation 4 in stores, and a Windows Phone was attempting to compete with established Android and iOS devices.
These are some of my favorite smartphones, whether it be design, versatility, or irreverence. Many of its ideas and proposals would not be successful, yet others are still in use today in our everyday lives.
This is my favorite smartphone to date, as its form remains as elegant as ever, and some features, like the dual speakers, have only just recently taken hold, even in modern top-of-the-line models.
The uni-block design in aluminum alloy, the minor curvature of the phone, the elegance and well-crafted edges, under a resin structure, are all things that add sophistication to the product. Even the red and gray BeatsAudio logo adds a touch of sophistication to the product.
The HTC One had some excellent successors, but nothing outperforms the real "One".
2.LG G Flex
LG, a South Korean smartphone company, had explored an extremely eye-catching smartphone concept about ten years ago. The LG G Flexwell, was quite stiff, a convincing proverb of the future of Samsung's foldable smartphones.
Flex was then a vision of the future. Its entire structure could bend slightly and was a thrill to see in store in practice.
LG then had a feature that was unique, the volume selection button on the back, just below the camera. It was unusual, even if the camera lens was easily covered in fingerprints.
With its Galaxy S, O LG G2 was able to match and perhaps surpass Samsung's high-end smartphones at a reasonable price. In terms of screens, LG was above its competitors' Galaxy S4.
The entire screen resolution of the phone was more ergonomic than the Galaxy S4, more comfortable to touch and a great purchase option in 2013. It then had a 5.2-inch screen, True-LCD IPS with HD+ resolution and everything looked more vivid.
The Snapdragon 800, which has a 3,000 mAh battery, and a 13MP main camera, was at the time the top of the range.
4.LG Nexus 5
From a pure enthusiast Android standpoint, the O LG Nexus 5 is regarded as the finest Android smartphone ever. The phone was relatively inexpensive, but pure Android made its Snapdragon 800 with 2 GB of RAM seem extraordinarily fast.
It was released with Android 4.4 KitKat and was sold on the market for around 349 euros, with an original design and incredible wireless charging (Qi standard), something we don't even have today in most high-end smartphones.
It made up for in innovation, features, and bloatware-free software.
Nokia Lumia 1020
Microsoft once dreamed of entering the smartphone market, late but decisively. Upon purchasing the legendary Nokia, the company was too self-assured that it would be left in the hands of a giant for its own health.
Microsoft brought a 41 MP sensor to this Nokia, which was fantastic in terms of color and capabilities.
The company's software was ineffective in the medium term, being gradually abandoned, although the Nokia Lumia 1020 was a fantastic phone.
Motorola Moto G (2013)
Motorola Moto G, the original. Motorola, which till today stands out in this mid-range and low-end segment with the Moto G line, owes everything to this launch.
The low price, excellent customization capability, and solid build quality were all included in this smartphone, even its relatively simple software knowledge, but it was personal enough to become an icon.
The Motorola Moto G set a new benchmark in the mid-range segment and helped us forget about the Galaxy Ys in our everyday lives, thank you!
7.Samsung Galaxy S4
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is still one of the finest Samsung smartphones ever released, with the iconic design of the Galaxy S3 lasting until today. It improved features as well as a stronger TouchWiz.
Although the interface was the start of one of Samsung's most controversial phases, it is certain that the screen elevated the AMOLED brand to new heights of performance and reference. It also came with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean installed.
After the stunning Galaxy S3, the Samsung Galaxy S4 would sell more than 90 million units, making it one of the most successful South Korean brands to date.
