As the majority of phone plans are two years, choosing your next phone should be complex as the handset will be with you for two years and so you want the best of the bunch. So what do these 3 options have to offer?
Samsung Galaxy S3 vs LG Nexus 4 vs iPhone 5
Samsung Galaxy S3: The Samsung Galaxy S3 has been out since summer and if you want an Android device, it happens to be one of the best. It does have a plastic look to it but you can forgive this thanks to the 4.8 inch Super AMOLED display with 306ppi. The handset has an 8 megapixel camera that is decent and it comes with 1080p video recording and LED flash.
It handles multitasking very well and it can deal with anything you put in its path. The Samsung Galaxy S3 is a solid performer and the battery life is quite decent, along with good call quality. Samsung are keeping their handsets updated with the latest OS as well.
iPhone 5: The iPhone 5 is a favourite among lovers of tech and it comes with superb design and looks. The iPhone 5 has a display of 5 inches and iOS 6 is hard to beat for ease of use. The iPhone 5 has a superb camera and comes with plenty of processing power, while still having a battery that lasts for the whole day under normal use.
While it isn’t one of the most exciting phones on the market right now, it does offer performance that is solid.
LG Nexus 4: The LG Nexus 4 has just been released and this is one of the purest forms of Android that you can get. The device comes from the combination of LG and Google, which means it will be among the first devices to get the latest Android updates. The device comes with a low price tag, starting at $299 in the Google Play Store. It has a display of 4.7 inches that is covered with Gorilla Glass, however it doesn’t have the high contrast of the Super AMOLED display.
The Nexus 4 could change the game when it comes to Android devices and if you want a handset that will get updates straight away while not wanting to break the bank, this is the one.
