Hot Commodity: Rounding Up 2013's Top Mobile Phones

Sep 16, 2013 /

The past few years have been huge for mobile technology, and 2013 is no different. In fact, the demand for high tech mobile phones has increased tremendously, and manufacturers have battled each other for supremacy by developing the hottest gadgets the world has ever seen.

These are some of the hottest mobile phones to hit the market this year:

  1. Power and Precision
  2. Just when everyone thought that tech giant Apple already ruled the mobile market, Samsung released the latest model from its Galaxy series, the S4. It features an Android OS, v4.2.2 or the Jelly Bean and runs at 1.9 GHz, which makes it fast even with many apps used. While it features a 5-inch screen, it is relatively lightweight at just 130g, and its dimensions are 136.6x69.8x7.9 mm. The Samsung Galaxy S4 also boasts of a 13MP camera and it has dual touch, image stabilisation, geo-tagging simultaneous HD video and image recording, touch focus, and face and smile detection functions. This mobile phone is the hottest product that Samsung has released this year, and it can really give the iPhone a run for its money.

  3. Style and Sophistication
  4. With a stylish aluminium body and fast Quad-core 1.7 GHz CPU, it’s safe to say that the HTC One is among the hottest mobile phones this year. Although many people are crazy about the iPhone and Galaxy, the HTC One can still rival its competitors with its top-notch features. Its body is made of aluminium and white plastic, and it weighs around 143g. It also boasts of an updated Sense 5 IU that has the BlinkFeed and monochrome clock widget features.

  5. Bold and Beautiful
  6. While a lot of consumers thought that Nokia will already be totally left out by its competitors, it released the best Windows 8 mobile phone in the world today. The Nokia Lumia 925 is indeed innovative in many ways. It runs on a Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon chipset and has a 4.5-inch AMOLED display with an astounding 1,280x768 resolution. You can also enjoy its 8MP camera with dual-LED flash, optical image stabilisation, and autofocus features.

  7. Sleek and Superb
  8. When the Google Nexus 4 was released in the market, it didn’t create as much buzz as its counterparts. But that doesn’t mean that this mobile phone is just another model. It runs on a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and the Jelly Bean OS. The Google Nexus 4 also has an 8MP camera with photo sphere, touch focus, geo-tagging, and face detection functions.

Of course, this list will never be complete with the hottest addition to Apple’s mobile phone empire, the iPhone 5S. Featuring an astounding 64-bit Apple A7 chipset, this mobile phone is twice as fast as its predecessor, the iPhone 5. It also features three colour variants, which are grey, silver, and gold. But perhaps the hottest addition to the iPhone 5S is its Touch ID feature for increased security. Now, how’s that for a cool gadget?
