Top Selling Smartphones in the World 2014

By -

Things are changing fast in the world of smartphones: slashed prices, ever-improving hardware, software updates and refreshed handsets arriving every few months means that things never stand still.

Our best smartphones list covers all operating systems, all sizes, and prices, so you'll be armed with everything you need to consider when choosing to buy your next device. Of course, the most important factor in buying a new device is making sure you have the best smartphone for you. The best for your budget, the features you need, the size that feels right and platform that suits you best.

I have the opportunity to use phones from every mobile operating system so it is tough to pick just one. My litmus test for picking the top phone in these lists is figuring out which single phone I would own if I could only have one. Given this condition, it is fairly easy for me to pick the best Apple iPhone.
