Smartphone of the Year 2014

You should know a super-smartphone when you see one, and you’ve seen plenty on Stuff. But which of these take the cake? That’s where you come in to help us decide.

Some of the more familiar names, such as the iPhone 6, LG G3, and Samsung Galaxy S5 are in the running, but that doesn’t mean you disregard underdogs such as the Nokia Lumia 930 or even the Sony Xperia Z3.

The votes have been cast, the smartphone king has been crowned. Allow us to introduce to you your chosen one. 

HTC One (M8)

HTC One (M8)

Because it’s an absolute corker. It’s been said to be one of the few Androids that can rival the iPhone in terms of looks, but its specs don’t falter either. There’s more of everything as compared to its predecessor too – more battery, more cameras, and more screen.

LG G3

LG G3

LG never stopped impressing us with its G range, especially with the LG G3. It’s sat on our Top 10 list for a few good months and has mesmerised us with its looks and specs – especially its pixel-crazy 2K screen, bezel-less design, and lovely metal-that's-really-plastic build.  

Nokia Lumia 930

Nokia Lumia 930

This smartphone’s said to be the best Windows Phone on the market. It may be undeniable since it’s one of the company’s most equipped and powerful units. It boasts a quad-core processor, huge full HD screen, and 20MP camera amongst others.

Samsung Galaxy S5

Samsung Galaxy S5

A big, illuminant screen, a remarkable camera, and packs of power. That’s what you get with the Samsung Galaxy S5. Regardless of its plastic make, the smartphone boasts a 5.1in super AMOLED screen, 16MP camera that shoots 4K video, and Snapdragon’s blazing 2.5GHz 801 processor amongst others.

Sony Xperia Z3

Sony Xperia Z3

The Sony Xperia Z2 was literally launched months before the Xperia Z3, but we’re not complaining especially after checking out its unique features.  It’s thinner and lighter than its predecessor, and has one of the best smartphone battery life and camera we’ve seen in a long time.
