2. Samsung S5


Samsung isn’t far behind Apple. The two companies have been in head to head competition and their flagships are definitely worth a try.

Samsung has even toned down its trademark Touchwiz so that you can have more fun with the phone. The good thing is that the prices have dropped recently so if you have been looking for a new Android device, S5 isn’t a bad choice.
