Consumer Reports: Snappiest Android phones

(WMC TV) - Despite all the talk about Apple's iPhones, more than 50 percent of the smart-phone market opts for an Android phone. 

Consumer Reports said the Samsung Galaxy S4's large display is just one example of 
what Android phones bring to the table. Another advantage Android phones offer is how easily they can wirelessly share pictures, videos, and other files with other devices.

The Galaxy S4 can also be used as a remote, not just for your television but also for your cable box.

The HTC One is another Android phone Consumer Reports recommended. It has widgets you can customize to have the phone really appear just the way you want it. Its camera does a great job taking pictures in low-light situations with its image sensor. You can edit and share those pictures in ways you can't even dream about on a regular camera. For example, the HTC One can automatically create a video from your photo and video library, complete with a 
soundtrack. 

Android phones also have better displays than ever. They are often five inches or larger and are high definition, and that's good news if you're looking at photos, videos, or reading text on a web page.

That includes the brand-new LG Optimus G Pro. Its 5½-inch HD 1080P display almost makes you forget you're watching video on a phone, making it another Android smart phone recommended by Consumer Reports.

Though Android has the edge right now with the latest technology, Apple is due to come 
out with a new phone sometime this year. Of course, Consumer Reports will be testing 
to see how the latest iPhone features stack up against Android's innovations.
