Those of you looking for a new Android phone this holiday seasons are going to be faced with a difficult decision. The market is chock full of big name, high performance options. With that in mind, we want to take a look at the devices we think are the five Android best phones money can buy in the month of December.
In the past 11 months, we’ve seen smartphone manufacturers unleash a number of big time Android smartphones. Early in the year, it was the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8 that tempted consumers looking for an upgrade. More recently though, its been devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, LG G3, Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Nexus 6 and Moto X that have lured in consumers across the U.S. and around the world.
Having this amount of choice is fantastic and dangerous at the same time, especially to those that don’t keep up with the fast paced world of Android phones. There are a ton of devices to choose from and many of them are fantastic. The 2014 crop of smartphones has been unusually good and that’s a gift and a curse for those that haven’t done their homework. That’s where we come in.
We are constantly bombarded with questions about the best Android phones money can buy. There are a number of different devices that we could recommend, the Android smartphone market is full of solid choices, but we want to narrow things down a bit and take a look at what we consider to be the top five Android phones available.
These devices represent the devices that we’d recommend to friends and family. And while our list may differ from yours, these are the devices that Gotta Be Mobile editors have selected for recognition this month. We feel like the devices listed here deliver the best, all-around package for this month and this month alone.
With that in mind, here are the five best Android phones for December, 2014.
The new Moto X had some extremely big shoes to fill but thankfully, it's done the job and done it well. Motorola's Moto X 2014, also known as Moto X, delivers a powerful Android package. In our opinion, it's one of the best phones ever made and one of the best smartphones you can buy right now.
The Moto X 2014 offers a brand new design, a beautiful display, tons of of horsepower, a good camera, and extremely useful software. The device is essentially a Nexus smartphone with some nice Motorola features attached. If you or a loved one likes vanilla Android, this is a phone to look at in December
Unlike some of these phones, the Moto X is cheap on-contract. And that low price should put it near the top of your shopping list during the holidays. For more information about the Moto X, please check out our full review.
