Top 10 Best Samsung Cell Phones 2014
* Also exists for all brands.
In our latest update, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Ace 3 and Ativ S Neo are our recommendation for best Samsung phones. The first one is a phablet, the second one a Android smartphone and the third one, a 16GB Windows Phone 8 smartphone.
#1. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3
The newest Galaxy Note wins 0.2 inches of display size but loses weight, going from 180 to 168 grams. It also ends up with a bigger resolution (full 1080p HD, compared to 720p for the Note 2). Even the processor gets beefed up to 2.30 Ghz (quad-core) and the camera goes from 8 megapixels to 13. It looks as though Samsung wants to get serious with the Galaxy Note and its positioning as a smartphone tablet computer combo.

Another addition to the Galaxy Ace line-up of mid-range smartphones, the Ace 3 runs on a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and is powered by a 1800 mAh battery with an estimated talk-time of 10 hours. It has a 5-megapixel main camera and a VGA front cam. Its main camera is capable of recording 720p HD videos at 30 frames per second. Like other Samsung smartphones, the Ace 3 has the S Voice (voice command and navigation prompt), S Translator (multiple language audio and text translator) and S Travel (travel recommendations and guide), among others.

Question #1: Should it be a smartphone?
#3. The Samsung Ativ S Neo
The Ativ S Neo is the 2013 version of the Ativ S, which uses the same operating system (Windows Phone 8) and dual-core Qualcomm MSM8930AA processor (but the S Neo has a speed of 1.4GHz while the Ativ S had 1.5GHz). It comes with ATIV Beam (for file-sharing with other NFC-enabled smartphones), and has an 8-megapixel camera and a 4.8-inch TFT screen (1280 x 720, 296 ppi). It has a 2000mAh battery with up to eight hours of browsing time for 3G (nine hours for 4G and 10 hours for Wi-Fi).
#4. The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2
The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 makes some welcome changes to the original - like the quad-core 1.2GHz processor, the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system, and the 5.25-inch HD (1280 x 720) TFT screen. Its larger 2600mAh battery is said to bring 17 hours (1020 minutes) of calls, and its RAM is bumped up to 1.5GB. It still has an 8-megapixel camera that shoots high-resolution (1920 x 1080) videos at 30 frames per second and 8GB of on-board memory. It has dual-SIM support but there is no mention of LTE capability.
#5. The Samsung Galaxy Core Plus
In describing the Galaxy Core Plus, Samsung puts its S Beam (NFC-based sharing technology) and Motion UI (gesture-based control) features front and center, but seemingly glosses over the fact that the dual-core 1.2GHz Android 4.2 smartphone is working with a slightly downgraded 758MB RAM and 4GB memory. Nevertheless, the Core Plus´ other specs are relatively decent: a 4.3-inch 800 x 480 TFT screen, a 5-megapixel camera, and an 1800mAh battery.
#6. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom
Reportedly the first smartphone to have a 10x optical zoom, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom (and its 16-megapixel camera) seems to want to be known as a camera that can take calls. It shoots 1080p HD videos at 30 frames per second and has a stand-by time of 330 hours. The rest of its features are mid-range: Jelly Bean 4.2 OS, 1.5 GHz dual core processor, and 4.3-inch sAMOLED display. Put plainly, it appears to be a half (high-end) camera, half (midlevel) smartphone. As if the camera grabbed all the juice...
#7. The Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo
Its name may be the only thing ambitious about this 1.2GHz quad-core Android phablet - even with its Multi Window function that can open two applications at the same time and its One-Handed Operation mode that modifies the keypad (among other things) to make single-hand typing possible (both features can be seen in other Samsung phablets anyway). It sports a 5.01-inch 800 x 480 TFT display, a 5-megapixel camera, a 1GB RAM, a 16GB memory, and a 2100mAh battery. LTE support is not available.
#8. The Samsung Convoy 3
Robust feature phone designed to withstand most environmental conditions, with a feature designed to dilute background noise, push-to-talk (typical of these work-oriented phones), a 3.2-megapixel camera, and basic internet capability. It has a processor speed of 480 MHz, 256MB RAM, and 512MB internal memory. At 4.4 ounces, it´s relatively lightweight and pocket-friendly, but heavier than the previous Convoy 2.
#9. The Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2
The second dual-SIM Galaxy S Duos also has the first one´s Always On technology (which Samsung says allows both SIM cards to be active even when one of them is in use) and its dual-core processor (only this time it clocks in at 1.2GHz instead of just 1). It ships with the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and sports a 4-inch 800 x 480 TFT screen, a 5-megapixel camera, a 4GB storage memory, and 717MB RAM. Its 1500mAh battery yields a talk time of eight hours or 480 minutes on 3G.
#10. The Samsung Galaxy Win Pro
A first-place finish is probably not a sure thing for the Samsung Galaxy Win pro, with its 1.2GHz (but quad-core) processor and its 4.5-inch qHD display. The dual-SIM Android 4.2 smartphone also sports a 5-megapixel camera that can record sound when taking pictures, a VGA front-facing camera, a 1.5GB RAM, an 8GB storage memory (expandable to 64GB), and a 2100mAh battery.
