By  | 

As we slowly begin to creep towards the fall where rumors of new flagship phones like the iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Motorola DROID RAZR HD begin to surface, it is time to take a quick look back at what 2012 has given us so far in case you are looking to upgrade this summer. So what are the 3 best smartphones worth upgrading to in 2012? Let’s take a look.

Best phones of 2012: Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC One X & Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX

Samsung Galaxy S3: This one is a no-brainer. With one of the fastest processors available on a smartphone in the market right now as well as a powerful camera and TouchWiz tweaks, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of the safest smartphones to upgrade to in 2012. It is currently available across all 4 major US carriers.

HTC One X: Available on AT&T as the HTC One X and on Sprint as the HTC EVO 4G LTE, this is HTC’s flagship Android smartphone at the moment. With stunning looks, a great camera and Android 4.0 ICS preloaded, the One X is one of the smartphones to roll out in 2012.

Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX: While the ‘oldest’ of the 3, the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX has one big favor in its corner – its whopping 3,300 mAh battery which continues to go unmatched. It boasts a dual-core processor just like its two rivals (US models of course), has a similar 8-megapixel rear camera with 1080p HD video and even can boast a UI that resembles the blue ICS overtones more than its competition can. If good battery life is important to you, the RAZR MAXX is the best on the market right now.

Are there any other smartphones released in 2012 that you think are worthy of mention? Do tell.
