29 best Android phones of 2014 | Best Android smartphone reviews - PC Advisor
So here they are - the best Android phones money can buy today. For many, many different reasons. 10. Samsung Galaxy S4 The Samsung Galaxy S4 still has a lot to offer, but as you can see it's taken a tumble down the rankings now it's successor, the Galaxy S5, is on the scene. Its plastic body means it feels far from premium, but the on screen experience is still strong and there's plenty of grunt under the hood to keep everything running smoothly. You'll also find Android 4.4 KitKat now residing on the handset and the price has dropped since the S5 appeared, making the Galaxy S4 a more affordable option. Quick verdict It may be over a year old now, but if your budget can't stretch to one of 2014's flagship devices the Galaxy S4 is still a very capable device.

This chipset will be turning 8 Cortex A7 cores running at 1.7Ghz, which is pretty awesome considering the USD$300 price range. The 50b priced at around USD$220 will be using MediaTeks MT6582 chipset, which is a quad-core processor running at 1.3Ghz per core. Strangely, and maybe by necessity being a budget phone, both variants will have only 1GB of RAM. The performance boost of added RAM say maybe 2GB of it in an octa-core phone is substantial, and we were wondering if Archos could have squeezed the cost enough to at least put 2GB of RAM in the octa-core 50c Oxygen.

Archos 50b, 50c Oxygen are budget quad, octa-core smartphones - Android Community
It has superb performance, and excellent build quality spoiled only slightly by running hot in use. You can't fault the feature set, and it matches the other high-end products in terms of price. In terms of audio and visual output it is unsurpassed. The interface might be an acquired taste for some, and we weren't overly impressed with the camera. It's not perfect, but alongside the Xperia Z and iPhone 5 this is about as good a phone as you can buy. Reviewed on: 13 May 14 RRP: 135 inc VAT Rating: Motorola's Moto G is the best budget smartphone around. At 135 it's got great build quality, an excellent screen, decent cameras and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean soon to be upgrade to 4.4 KitKat.
