Since December, the Samsung Galaxy S4 has been, perhaps, the most talked about smartphone of 2013. However, it won’t be touching down on shelves in March, meaning, those who are in the market for a smartphone this month, particularly an Android smartphone, won’t be able to buy it. Instead, consumers will be faced with a host of other devices.

The task of picking a new Android smartphone, especially now that 2013 is well under way is a daunting task to say the least. The market is rife with competition including several devices from last year’s Android crop and now, several devices that were announced in 2013 and will be or already are on shelves to buy.

What this means is that the Android smartphone landscape, which had stayed pretty consistent in terms of the top tier smartphones, is now vastly different. And that could prove problematic for those trying to device on which device to buy in the month of March.

Last month, the list of the best Android smartphones on the market including some wily veterans including the Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X+. However, the HTC One X+ has since been replaced by HTC’s latest generation flagship and the Galaxy S3, while still a solid smartphone, is set to be trumped by the Samsung Galaxy S4 on March 14th.

Their absence has left a void but it’s one that has been filled by two new Android smartphones that should be on the radar of those looking for a new Android smartphone this month.

That said, it’s time to take a look at what we consider to be the five best Android smartphones available for the month of March, 2013.
