For students, they use Smartphones to communicate with friends and family as well as to play games. For businessmen, they use Smartphones to access their office’s phone system and avail of third party phone services such as RingCentral business phone numbers.
This year, there are new Smartphone models from popular brands. If you are planning to buy your first Smartphone or if you are planning to replace your current model, you might want to consider the latest Smartphone models below.
Samsung I9500 Galaxy S4
This Samsung smartphone was announced in March 2013 and is expected to be released on April 26. It is thinner compared to previous Samsung models. Its dimensions are 5.38 x 2.75 x 0.31 inches.
It is also light at 130 grams. It has a better display compared with older units with its a super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen in 16M colors, 1080 x 1920 pixels and 441 PPI pixel density. Its screen is also wider at 5.0 inches.
For the camera, it has a 13 MP back camera with LED flash, autofocus, and 4128 x 3096 ppi. It has advanced features such as face and smile detection, image stabilization, HDR, touch focus, geo tagging, simultaneous HD video and image recording, and dual shot.
With these capabilities of the camera, users can definitely have a great time taking photos of their daily life. Even if there is little light, users can still produce quality and visually appealing images.
LG Spirit 4G
This model was announced in December 2012 and was released January 2013. It also a thin phone, but not thinner than Galaxy S4. Its dimensions are 5.08 x 2.61 x 0.37 inches.
However, it is lighter at 122 grams. The display is 4.5 inches and has a much lower resolution and PPI pixel density compared to Galaxy S4. It has some better features though such as the capacitive and multi-touch touchscreen, proximity sensor, scratch-resistant glass, and light sensor.
For the camera, it has a 5 MP back camera with LED flash. It has features such as voice activation, self-timer, geo tagging and auto focus. Though the camera can be used even in low light photography because of the LED flash feature, it definitely cannot produce quality photos as high as the Galaxy S4 can.
Sony Xperia Z
Sony Xperia Z was announced in January 2013 and was released the next month. It is as thin as the S4. Its dimensions are 5.47 x 2.80 x 0.31.
Among the three, however, it is the heaviest at 146 grams. For the display, the type is TFT capacitive and multi-touch touchscreen in 16M colors with 1080 x 1920 pixels and 441 PPI pixel density.
It also has a 5.0 inches wide screen. Add to the features the shatter proof and scratch-resistant glass. Apparently, both the S4 and Xperia Z can deliver the same great visual experience.
For the camera, it has a 13.1 MP back camera with LED flash, autofocus and 4128 x 3096 pixels. It has other features such as sweep panorama, HDR, image stabilization, face detection, touch focus, and geo tagging.
Considering all these, it seems that the Sony Xperia Z is the most capable in delivering better visual experience and higher quality for photos. The Samsung Galaxy S4 follows closely while the LG Spirit 4G did not fare well.
However, the price will be a major influencing factor when choosing one from any of these. As you know, Samsung always offer better price rates compared to other as popular brands.

I have the Samsung I9500 Galaxy S4. I am not a heavy user of smart phone camera’s, but I do love this one. My teen-age step daughter is always bugging me to use my phone because in her words, “the camera rocks”. :o)
Sony Xperia Z has the best camera quality I have seen till now.
S6 has the best smartphone camera 🙂
This post is possibly much older. I would have loved to see some model from lenovo or from Mi at least as they are really coming up with models with great features indeed and they are cheap as well. I am personally using Lenovo A6000 and its a great phone at the budget of only 7k!
Frankly Speaking I love lenovo or mi much than any other smartphone in terms of camera quality and resolution.
