2013 was year filled with a number of promising devices. Most companies gave their best technology bundled under one smartphone like Samsung Galaxy s4
and it’s Cousin the Galaxy Note 3.Most of them tried to make a killing in this sector.Some went ahead

Some companies ,mostly Chinese,chose to keep it low and provided good hardware at midrange price .

previous lower end smart phones.
2013 was a year of 1080p screens,snapdragon 600 and later snapdragon 800 processor, 13 megapixel

and mostly old technology.It is expected to be a good year technologically to the consumers not the
