The Fastest Android Phones As Of January 2016


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 a 2+ Ghz processor
  • A good amount of RAM
  • At least a 6-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).
