Snappiest Android Phones

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

Some of the latest entries offer lots of fantastic new features. Here are three Android phones Consumer Reports says are worth considering.

Consumer Reports says the Samsung Galaxy S 4's large display is just one example of what Android phones bring to the table.

Mike Gikas of Consumer Reports says, "Another advantage Android phones offer is how easily they can wirelessly share pictures, videos, and other files, with other devices nearby."

The Galaxy S 4 can also be used as a remote, not just for your television but for your cable box as well.

The HTC One is another Android phone that stands out.

Gikas says, 'There's a great deal of customization options when it comes to the software, the interface for example, there are widgets that you can customize and have the phone really appear just the way you want it."

And its camera does a great job taking pictures in low-light situations with its unique image sensor. And that's not all.

Gikas says, "You can edit and share those pictures in ways that you can't even dream about on a regular camera."

For example, the HTC One can automatically create a video library...complete with a soundtrack.

Android phones also have better displays than ever.

Gikas says, "They're often five inches or larger, they're 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 five-and-a-half-inch HD 10-80P display almost makes you forget you're watching video on a phone, making it another Android recommended by Consumer Reports.

While Android has the edge right now with the latest technology, Apple is due to come out with a new phone some time this year.
