The Best Smartphones Out Right Now (That Aren’t an iPhone)


Samsung Galaxy S5

The latest iteration of the very well-regarded Galaxy S lineup, the S5 is aimed pretty squarely at the iPhone 6’s target audience. In fact, you could argue that with the iPhone only now expanding into the territory of 5″ screens, it’s really Apple that was taking aim at a market Samsung had previously cornered.

And while the iPhone 6 brings with it many of Apple’s hallmarks, including premium build quality and a sleek, intuitive user interface, it’s really Samsung that has been innovating in this sector for years. Among some of the S5’s great features include a waterproof design (first debuted as a variant of the S4), a heart rate monitor built into the device, a full 1080p Super AMOLED screen, and a quad-core Snapdragon processor.

The screen especially has set the Galaxy S5 apart from its competitors in the 5″ segment, in particular due to its contrast. This makes it ideal for watching movies on your phone, and with an estimated 7.5 hours of battery life at normal use, you won’t have to worry about losing charge before the end.

Numerous critics have lauded the Galaxy S5’s features and technical specs. If you’re in the market for a smartphone that can more than hold its own against the iPhone 6, you’d be wise to give the S5 a try.
