In the sea of various models of mobile phones that can be found on the market, customers often get into trouble before the act of purchase, and due to the flood of information, they cannot decide on the type of mobile device that will be the best choice for them. Is it a better phone with Android, Symbian or Windows operating system, factory software, processor with 2 cores…
It is for this reason that we have done a little research on both the world and our market, and we have combined that research with our business experiences, of which you were a part. Your help was crucial because through you on we get a huge amount of information from the “field” about the problems, quality, pros and cons of certain models and all this combined into one list of Top 10 – ten the best models for shopping in 2012, for which there is the greatest interest, but also the most praise. On this occasion, we will not sort the phones by price range, nor by the principle from the best to the weakest, but this is one list that we and you consider to be the best purchase. We tried to put devices of different “price spheres” in these ten models, so that this table would be useful both for buyers of high-class devices, and for buyers of slightly cheaper models. Ladies and gentlemen, we present to you!
Samsung Galaxy S3
we can say that this model marked 2012 when it comes to extra class devices, and here’s why. This model has a large HD display, fast Exynos processor with 4 cores, 1GB RAM, Android 4.0 (Android 4.1 is announced and we look forward to it), The camera of this model of 8MP provides a fantastic experience, NFC support, replaceable battery (no assistance) service), expandable memory, flawless design.
Samsung is not fast enough when it comes to newer software versions
We consider the Galaxy S3 to be one of the best models on the market when it comes to hardware. Although the price of this model is quite “strong”, Samsung is obviously aware that it has produced a fantastic phone, which we believe will be a completely solid device in 2 years.
HTC One X
The good side: The camera of this model makes breathtaking images, fantastic design, Beats audio (high sound quality), large S-LCD 2 display of “vivid colors”, quad-core Tegra 3 processor, the best version of Sense UI so far (user interface) ), NFC support, Android 4.0 (Android 4.1 announced).
Disadvantage: Not the ability to expand the memory, changing the battery requires service intervention.
Conclusion: HTC with this model provides a first-class Android experience, with the price of the device being significantly cheaper than competing devices in this class. The design is flawless, and this model has growing customer support around the world.
Samsung Galaxy Nexus
The good side: This model was among the first to get Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a large 4.65-inch display with colors, contrast, and viewing angles equally good, NFC support, replaceable battery without service assistance.
The downside: The 5MP camera takes great pictures (of course in the camera class of this pixel), but the helmet behind the cameras of models like Galaxy S3 and One X. a.
Conclusion: Samsung Galaxy Nexus is a device with excellent value for money. The software of this model and its functionality are so good that at times it is not difficult to forget that this model is almost a year old. This model is still a good buy if you ignore the camera and not the ability to expand the memory, but the “next Nexus” is coming soon.
Sony Xperia Acro S
The good side: Sony has made a number of fantastic devices since it broke away from Ericsson and this one is definitely one of them. It features a fantastic 4.3-inch LED-backlit LCD HD display, 1.5GHz dual core processor, NFC support, I57 certified dust and water resistance, an excellent 12MP camera that is better than those in competing devices in this class, expandable memory
Disadvantage: Although the processor of this model is quite strong, we expected a quad core, the battery is not replaceable without service assistance,
Conclusion: This model is one of the most complete devices today when all performance is taken into account. While the price of this model holds up pretty well, given the pace at which Sony is producing new models it will inevitably have its price drop. Then this model will be a great purchase and definitely the most complete model.
Sony Xperia Tipo
The good side: This is one of Sony’s mid-range, high-performance devices, Android 4.0, clear 3.2-inch display, solid 800 MHz Snapdragon S1 processor, expandable memory-microSD slot, FM radio, available in multiple colors ( black, white, red, blue).
Disadvantage: lower resolution 480 x 320, weaker 3 megapixel camera, modest 2.5 GB of internal memory.
Conclusion: In this class of models, we would recommend the Xperia Mini pro, but that model is starting to “age”. The new Xperia Tipo provides more internal memory than it, a more durable battery, but also overall better performance.
Alcatel OT 995
The good side: Alcatel rose from the “ashes” to put it that way, because it hasn’t been on the scene for a long time, but with this model it offered the market a pretty good middle-class device. The OT 995 features a 1.4GHz Qualcomm MSM8255T Snapdragon processor, a large 4.3inch TFT display, a solid 5MP camera, and expandable memory.
Disadvantage: This model would rank better if it had a stronger 8MP camera.
Conclusion: This is a model that we warmly recommend because in this price range (if we ignore the camera) it is difficult to find a more complete phone. The advantage of this model is a fairly wide range of colors in which it is produced (black, white, black and white, red, pink)
Apple iPhone 5
The good side: This is a phone that does not need to be presented much because it is one of the main topics of all telecommunication forums and blogs in 2012. It has a fantastic A6 dual core processor of 1.2GHz, LED-backlit IPS TFT display of 4 inches, 8MP camera with fantastic capabilities, LTE support, impressively slim and sleek design, great battery.
The downside: The aluminum case looks fantastic but is scratch resistant, support only for Nano SIM card (we do not have it officially for now), not the ability to expand the memory
Conclusion: This model is recognized and challenged around the world, but we commend it. First of all, because of the fantastic chipset, great camera and high completeness that rarely any model has. What is the biggest obstacle (or advantage) of this model to becoming commercial is its not at all low price, but since Apple has always been guided by the highest criteria when it comes to quality, we will have to accept that it is simply so.
Sony Xperia T
The good side: This model is one of the freshest on the market, but it immediately attracted a lot of attention thanks to its excellent performance. Powerful Dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait processor, large and clear TFT display, 13MP camera is the best thing presented in the commercial market, NFC support, high quality workmanship
Disadvantage: The battery is attributed to modest performance, quite large dimensions that may not suit every user of this model, Jelly Bean software version has yet to become available to users
Conclusion: This model is a new trump card of Sony and the success of this model is guaranteed. We expect a drop in a fairly high starting price (which has become a practice after the first “unrealistic” prices) and then this model will be a great choice.
Nokia Lumia 900
The good side: This is currently one of the highest quality Windows 7.5 OS (Mango) phones on the market. It has an excellent 1.4GHz Scorpion CPU processor, a 4.3-inch AMOLED display with high resistance, an 8MP camera makes fantastic images, a superior design.
Disadvantage: According to currently available information, this model will not receive an update to the latest Windows 8, the battery is not replaceable without service assistance, the inability to expand the memory
Conclusion: The Nokia Lumia 900 is a model that is quite affordable for its performance and well below the prices of competing devices in this class. The rich hardware and good software solutions of this model make it one of the top 10 models when it comes to smartphone shopping.
Nokia Asha 306
The good side: Asha 306 is a model that is one of the most attractive models on the market in its class, 3-inch QVGA display with excellent “vivid” colors, 2MP camera, expandable memory (you get a 2GB card in the package), high performance speakers , beautiful design and quality finish
Disadvantage: the user interface sometimes “slows down” due to low RAM, fixed focus camera.
Conclusion: This model was produced by Nokia for the “broad masses” and in response to a number of expensive smartphones that have flooded the market. This model will definitely reach its clientele, because it is difficult to find a better and more complete device for its price.
These models are the Top 10 – the ten best models to buy in 2012. No matter which model you choose and regardless of the price range, we always advise our customers to first of all think about their needs when it comes to a mobile device. Think about your everyday life, because a person who, for example, likes to take pictures a lot and often uses a camera, understandably thinks that high-performance cameras are his priority. Choose the device that is best “tailored” to your measurements, and in this way your satisfaction will be guaranteed.
