With each passing year, the number of smartphones that hit the market keeps rising, even as the brutal tech market forces certain manufacturers to throw in the towel. While the head honchos of the market dish it out, constantly trying to one-up each other in the hardware specifications race, the consumers find themselves spoiled for choice. Low-end and mid-range devices might satisfy the regular user, but a technology enthusiast will seldom settle for anything but the best an OEM or developer has to offer. The list of choices for the latter is only relatively short, the key word here being ‘relatively’. One would still have to skim through a lot of specs sheets and device reviews to make an informed decision. To make the first part easier for you, we’re going to be compiling and comparing the specifications of current flagship Android, iOS and Windows Phone smartphones from major manufacturers and developers right here.
Our current OEM/developer roster comprises Apple, Google, Samsung, HTC, Nokia, Motorola, LG and Sony, their current flagship smartphones and phablets being the iPhone 5s, Nexus 5, Galaxy S4 & Galaxy Note 3, HTC One, Lumia 1020 & Lumia 1520, Moto X, Xperia Z1 and the G2 respectively.
The following table provides a head-to-head comparison of their major hardware specifications. We’re going to update the table every time a new flagship device is announced or hits the market, so you might want to bookmark this page.
So what’s your favorite flagship smartphone or phablet? Do you plan to buy any of these or will you wait for the next generation of devices? Let us know in the comments section below.
