5 Best Android Phones [October, 2014]

If you’re in the market for a brand new Android smartphone in the month of October, you’re going to be faced with a very difficult decision. The Android marketplace is full of big name devices ahead of the holidays. In an effort to help those in need, we take a look at the devices we think are the five best Android phones for the month of October, 2014.

Over the past 10 months, we’ve seen Android manufacturers unleash a number of big time smartphones. Early in the year, it was the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8 that made a lot of noise. More recently, its been devices like the LG G3, Samsung Galaxy Note 4, and Moto X that have opened up the minds, and wallets, of consumers across the United States.

While it’s nice to have that amount of choice, it presents problems for many people, especially those that don’t keep up with the times. By our count, there is only one flagship Android smartphone remaining and that’s the Nexus 6 from Motorola and Google. It can be a struggle and that’s why we want to help those who are struggling with a decision.

LG G3

The LG G3 is one of the premier Android smartphones on the market combining high-end hardware, useful software and an inexpensive price tag. The LG G3 is one of our personal favorites and a device that should be on the radar of those looking to buy a new smartphone this fall.

LG's G3 took over for the LG G2 several months ago and since then, it has reigned as one of the best all-around Android devices on the market. From its large Quad HD display to its speedy processor to its camera and battery life, this is one of the best smartphones that money can buy.

Best of all, the LG G3 is now extremely cheap as retailers and carriers try and make it attractive next to the latest and greatest Android devices. The LG G3 might not have the biggest name but it's a big time device and it's worthy of your attention. Take a look at it before buying your next phone. Our LG G3 review should help.
