The Fastest Android Phones As Of April 2015


Multimedia tasks and apps on mobile devices demand that the fastest Android smartphones be several times faster than models from a few years ago. To build up this list of fast Android smartphones, we use roughly these criteria:

  • Preferably at least 1.7 Ghz processor
  • Preferably 2GB of RAM
  • At least a quad-core processor (but preferably octa-core)
  • Most models shown below may also include other speed-enhancing features like 4G network capability and the occasional superior Graphics Processing Unit (GPU).
