We were torn between including the original HTC One M7, Galaxy S4 or LG G2 in this spot but ultimately, we've selected the LG G2 and here's why.
It boasts a powerful camera with Optical Image Stabilization and it also comes with some of the best battery life on the market. Battery life and camera are absolutely key and the LG G2 excels in both areas.
The LG G2 also comes with a beautiful display, speedy processor, Android 4.4 KitKat software with a delightful LG skin, and more. Oh, and we should also mention that's cheap through Amazon.
If you're thinking about buying the HTC One M8 this month, it's worth checking out the LG G2. It's still a very solid smartphone.
