Android Phone Review: What to Look For?

 Whether you’re in the market for a new Android smartphone or considering becoming a first-time user, our side-by-side comparison and articles on Android phones can help you choose the device that’s right for you. The best Android phones, including the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Motorola Droid Razr Maxx, and Motorola Atrix, excel in each criterion we used to determine the best overall Android devices. These criteria, outlined below, can help you choose the device that will best meet your wireless needs.

 Design entails the look and physical dimensions of an Android phone. We assessed the size, weight and display resolution of each phone in our lineup, as well as whether or not the phone is equipped with a physical keyboard in addition to its touchscreen.

Battery Life
 Battery life refers to how long the device’s battery can last – the longer, the better. For this metric, we took into account the maximum battery life during both talk time and standby time (when the phone is on but not in use).

 An Android phone’s multimedia capabilities refer to the functions it provides that enable access to your favorite media, including videos, music and photos. We looked for a camcorder function, high video resolution, and both rear- and front-facing cameras; the latter ideal for video chat and capturing self-portraits.

 When we talk about the technical specifications of an Android phone, we're referring to the hardware of the device. These specifications include items such as how much internal storage and memory the phone is equipped with and how much additional storage it can support through removable media. It also entails which Android operating system the device runs on. These specs determine how the device operates, how much data you can store and how quickly it runs.

 This criterion entails the various functions, aside from calling, that the Android phone can perform. These features enhance the usefulness of the device and include capabilities such as Bluetooth, video recording, Wi-Fi connectivity and more.

As the Android platform continues to gain popularity among consumers and increase its market share, the range of available Android devices, from entry-level to sophisticated, will continue to grow as well. Bear these factors in mind when you’re on the hunt for your next Android phone.
