Choosing among Available Android Phones in the Market

Posted December 12, 2012 by Leiden Johnson in Gadgets

The advent of android phones has changed the lives of many mobile users across the world for the better. Basically, this type of handset uses the Android operating system developed by Google, allowing you to customize your smartphone in any way you like. Most Android phones share the same features and capabilities. They only vary in size, design, hardware, and technical specifications. More so, all Android phones can access the popular Android market for free.  Also known as Google Play Store, this market is packed with myriad of applications, from books and references, comics, communication, widgets, games, photography, music and audio, to entertainment apps that can be purchased or downloaded for free.

If you’re planning to buy an Android phone, here are a few models that you may want to try to include on your shortlist.

Samsung Galaxy SIII

The Samsung Galaxy SIII is undeniably one of the most technically advanced Android phones Samsung has ever created. It is light, thin, and fast with sleek design and pretty impressive specs. This smartphone is also feature-rich, sporting an 8-megapixel camera, large 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display, and much more! Sure, it is user-friendly but not budget-friendly.


Another Android phone to love is the HTC One S. It is actually a mid-range smartphone, that belongs to the HTC’s One series. It is relatively light at a mere weight of 119.5 grams. It also has a thin profile, and nifty design, which makes it more sophisticated than ever. The 4.3-inch AMOLED display may not be as large as the S3, but you’ll be pleasantly surprised how it delivers fluid graphics animation and life-like images. Apart from the 8-megapixel camera, it also features Beats Audio technology, Dropbox, and everything in between.

Sony Xperia J

If you’re after a stylish yet cost-effective Android phone, you may want to take peek at the Sony Xperia J. Running the Android 4.0, also known as the Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, this handset flaunts a fancy-looking design with a cool, media alert illumination feature. It has an average-size screen at 4 inches, which delivers pin-sharp text, and vibrant photos for a great viewing experience. Other features include the 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and auto-focus feature, xLoud technology that further amplifies the volume of the sound, and much more.

LG Optimus L3

For Android newbies, LG Optimus L3 might be the right one for you. It is an entry-level Android phone with average features and specs. It has a unique, square-edged design and slender body so you can easily wrap it around your fingers. The 3.2-inch LCD screen is good but at a resolution of 240 x 320, you may want to limit your expectations. Camera isn’t that impressive, but it does its job well. LG Smartworld, and mp3 player, and FM radio are just few of the many features it offers.

With all the many Android phones available at RingCentral, it’ll be a challenge for you to choose one. Hence, you need to weigh out first their pros and cons as this will help you evaluate their performance and overall quality.
