Best High-end Android Smartphones:

Top Choice: Samsung Galaxy S6

Samsung’s new flagship Galaxy S6 is one of the best Android smartphones ever built by Samsung. Sporting a metal frame, the smartphone comes with some impressive specifications and it has gotten rave reviews from all over.

The only area of slight concern with the S6 is its battery life, which compared to other components of the phone is not great.

Don’t like the battery in Galaxy S6, Motorola’s Moto Turbo might help you. The phone packs mammoth 3900 mAh battery, which can easily two days worth of back-up on medium usage.  Other specifications of the phone aren’t shabby either.

  • Reddy

    I tried from last 3 years S3, S4 and S5 ….. at the end realised it’s not worth spending one more rupee on samsung phones. None of them work more than one year, and when you go for repair ( As the life of the part is just a year ), they will charge extreamly high, and also their service response is poor. Enough of samsung drama in India, now it’s time to change.

  • Ashish Mittal

    Samsung S4 is the best choice as the company is leading the market right now. Also it is a better choice to wait for Note 3, coming up next month. Operating on Android Jelly Beans 4.3, with octa-core processor.
    It would be amazing!
