CES features the best of the best when it comes to technology, and the smartphone lineup at CES this year was proof of that. As CES comes to a close, a few smartphones in particular stuck out of the crowd and captivated the attention of the convention’s attendees. These three, top-notch smartphones promise that 2012 is going to be a fabulous year for mobile users and technology enthusiasts:
This zippy, attractive Windows phone runs on AT&T’s 4G LTE network. It boasts a 4.3-inch, AMOLED CBD screen, 1830 mAh battery, and 1.4-GHz processor. Unlike the Lumia 800 (which only included a rear facing camera), the Lumia 900 comes with both a rear and front facing camera with large apertures and wide-angle focal lengths, allowing users to take brilliant photos in low light settings.
2. Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX
If you’re tired of your smartphone battery dying after a day’s worth of use, the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX is the phone for you. Its incredible Li-Ion 3330 mAh battery allows for 21 hours or talk time and 368 hours of standby time in between charges. The RAZR MAXX currently runs on the Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS, but will be upgraded to the Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich OS when it’s released later this year.
3. Samsung Galaxy Note
This phone’s enormous 5.3-inch screen turned more than a few heads at CES 2012. Aside from its screen, what’s notable about the Samsung Galaxy Note is that it comes with a stylus. Its large screen and attached stylus make it sort of a fusion of a smartphone and a tablet. Its 1.4-GHz processor, 16GB memory, HD Super AMOLED Screen, and 1080p HD Video will make it one of the top contenders in this year’s competition among smartphones.
