GSMArena smartphone shopping guide: November 2013 - read the full textOne of the most common questions we encounter as writers and editors for mobile tech revolves around which phone to buy. We've taken it upon ourselves to share our insight with more than just our friends, so we're starting a recurring article...

For an average user, that values 'price per feature', and does not want a large screen phone, get either the HTC One Mini or Samsung S4 Mini. They are simply the best, most compact, and well priced phones on the current market. Will hold there own in the years to come!

The most negative point of Samsung Galaxy Y S5360(and the same to S6102): the 180MB internal memory!!! IMO this MUST be mentioned!!

Another phone that could be recommended is the Ativ S, it's like the GS3 on Windows phone, and is insanly cheap for it's specs. And if you want MS Office on an big screen, but pocketable...


P.S - Now the same guide for Tablets! You know you have to GSM!

What's up with the sony xperia Z, ZR and Z1 getting "beautiful design" as pro? Looks are subjective. Personally I dislike the looks of the Z phones, especially the Z and Z1 due to their huge bezels. Furthermore I think the design of the Z was actually better than its follower the Z1.

comparing screen of s4 and note3, s4 is better looking.
since nothing comes near (stroke recognition- pen input,and other already installed programs like foto character recognition, search or memo) of note3, I hope for Qhd or 4k in note4. there is nobody to compete with note1, what will happen when there will be note4. Who cares about 41mp, i want great mobile not camera. thx

Note 3 is the best! iPhone 5s is a WASTE of money.

Great shopping guide, but where is the iPhone 5c and the old yet unphased-out 4S?

I think in India-we are better served in mobile can buy a Budget dual core Lava with 3.5 inch capacitive screen-Android 4.2-- for 40 Euro..and on other end the LG G2- 16 GB for 430 Euro..
