1. LG G2
Possibly the best phone of the moment now is the LG G2, but mostly for reasons of quality / price. The large display of 5.2 inches high quality, 800 Snapdragon processor that can get high performance at 1920x1080 pixel resolution in games, and a huge 3,000 mAh battery. It is one of the phones with better battery life out there in the market.
The display has a minimum edges to that size does not become unmanageable. One detail that may shock at first is that the power and volume buttons have them in the middle back. Its display has a brightness of 450 nits, a little low to be seamlessly broad daylight, but the contrast 1400: 1 and the quality of the colors make it pretty good. The camera has been perhaps a little behind (it is a terminal of a year ago), but still very good for the price of the terminal. Give them a tour of our analysis of the LG G2.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 2 GB / 16 GB 5.2 '', 1920 x 1080 pixels (424 ppi) 3000 mAh 138.5 x D 70.9 x 8.9 mm No 13MP / 2,1MP LTE: Yes
2. Huawei Honor 6
The Honor 6 features 8-core SoC based on ARM technology Big.little. In other words, with two groups of 4 cores, and activated either group depending on the power requirements have the application you are using. This lets you choose from a group of high performance, consumer, or other lower performance and lower power consumption.
The design of the phone is attractive, but the glossy plastic finish instead of matte back makes it particularly slippery and can slide on surfaces other than rough or eg are varnished. Also the rear is damaged quite easily, so it is a device you need to be careful.
The camera of Honor 6 is a clear example that more megapixels do not provide better quality photos. It is a good camera, look good photos at night or in low light (not as much as high-end phones), but in broad daylight, but the pictures are good, they lack clear detail that itself is obtained a camera 8 megapixels like the iPhone 5s.
What's interesting about this is that in Settings terminal has an option of "Rog", which when activated will restart the phone with screen resolution 1280x720 pixels instead of the native 1920x1080 pixels. This allows the games run at a level of performance comparable to Adreno GPU 330 and reduces overall consumption of the device. It is very convenient for users who do not have bionic eye, although the envelope scaling of the image is incredibly sharp.
For small phone having this terminal, and the lack of extras such as fingerprints or water resistance or increased resistance to falls, sensor is what stays in the upper midrange.
Kirin HISILICON 920 3 GB / 16 GB 5 '', 1920 x 1080 pixels (441 ppi) D 3100 mAh 139.6 x 69.7 x 7.5 mm Yes 13MP / 5MPF Dual SIM (Micro-SIM, dual stand-by ) LTE: Yes
3. Motorola Moto G
Motorola now has three interesting in the midrange terminals: the Moto G, the Moto G 4G, and the recently introduced New Moto G (or Moto G 2014 as ye see him more commonly referenced). The truth is that you can choose for those who seek a new phone quality 150-180 euros.
The original Moto G is discontinued or in the process of it, and since it is far from the price of 150 euros so interesting, those who want a small phone can use the version of 16GB of internal storage or Moto G 4G. It has a fabulous screen, great performance and a decent camera. It is a mobile phone for those who want to chat, surf the Internet and make calls, along with the use of normal applications. You can play with it, but the 3D titles will not be with the best graphics in the world. The battery lasts trouble free day with a medium-heavy use.
New Moto G has a 5-inch screen and higher hardware and practically the same size, except front stereo speakers and microSD card reader. The camera pans up to 8 megapixels takes better pictures with high and low light, but still losing many details in the photos and the edges are blurred (usable to pass them through Facebook or WhatsApp photos, but on a 1080p TV will see that the camera is far much of the high end).
The size difference between the New Moto Moto G and G Original is: 141.5 x 70.7 x 11 mm vs. 129.9 x 65.9 x 11.6 mm. The Moto G can be managed, with some difficulty, with one hand, but the New Moto G no. Both are good phones, and diversity is the spice.

4. Xiaomi Hongmi 1s (Red Rice)
Xiaomi is one of the most interesting Chinese manufacturers. It is well known in the world of smartphones, so to say "Chinese" I do not mean white or bad mark. Its current director of marketing is Hugo Barra, who held the position in Google until last year. The global expansion of Xiaomi is something we all want for the most excellent quality / price of their products.
The Hongmi (Red Rice) is very fluid, features 4.7-inch 720p display, 1GB of RAM and quad-core processor with Android 4.2. With a good battery and 8 megapixel camera that takes great pictures outdoors, can you ask for?

6. Microsoft Lumia 630
The Lumia 630 is a great terminal of just 150 euros with which to enjoy Windows Phone 8.1, with extremely useful assistant and other improvements. It is a fluid terminal, and that being Windows Phone hardware works best with a "less" powerful. An excellent phone to boot into Windows Phone.
It is quite ergonomic, has a design that I like Nokia and comes in multiple colors (than usual in the Finnish company). It is suitable for those who want a safe and secure terminal and access the services of Microsoft. You can read our review of Lumia 630.

7. LG G2 mini
LG and the "mini" version of G2 is a good midrange phone for price and features now. With a smaller 4.7-inch screen with a normal brightness and good but pulling the blue, a strong point is its battery of 2,440 mAh, which together with a screen resolution of 960x540 pixels will have greater autonomy usual in this range.
Your camera comes decently 8MP, although it tends to take pictures darker and more intense colors, but with good detail. It is a good camera for what is usually seen in the average range, although as usual in her dimly lit scenes may introduce enough noise in the picture.
The design and finish of the terminal are good and can be managed with some difficulty with one hand. This terminal has connectivity NFC, LTE (4G) and microSD card reader, so it is very comprehensive and a good choice of point of purchase.

8. Xiaomi Mi 3
The Chinese company Xiaomi is in full global expansion, but primarily for those countries that are a little closer in Southeast Asia. Although it has recently introduced the Mi 4, that just means that the Mi 3 will be putting at a better price, but for 245 euros to departure now is an excellent buy.
What will we get? For what now ship any logo. Any interesting additional feature? Well maybe an attractive design, great finish and a good camera. Also your MIUI customization layer that has very good reviews and deal to keep it updated. I think it's a great buy from every point of view, although the lack of self-service in Europe to take someone back on your purchase, but buy it on Amazon can give a little more confidence in that regard.

10. Microsoft Lumia 530
This review of the bestselling Lumia 520 including an improved 200 Snapdragon processor and the rest of the device is virtually unchanged, except for a slight improvement in the quality of the screen. Since it works with Windows Phone, go 100% fluid and is one of the most cost terminals that can be found on the market that provide a good user experience.

11. Moto X
The Moto X is one of those terminals that have passed quickly to the midrange to high-end current buoyant. While it has a dual core processor, gives a good performance and fluency in everyday tasks: messages, whatsapp, sailing ... However, it has around 60% of graphic power of Snapdragon 800 and 801, and perhaps is the only weak point of the terminal.
It has a voice activation system, a software which displays notifications so that consume less battery, and is generally pleasant to hold. Not particularly big with its 4.7-inch screen at 720p, and has 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, but no microSD card reader, heritage Motorola period within the conglomerate Google (and now Lenovo has passed).

12. Sony Xperia Xperia Z1 and Z1 Compact
The Xperia Z1 and Z1 Compact can be considered as the same phone with different format. They, except for the size and resolution of the screen, with the same hardware. Its strong point is the 20-megapixel camera, and the element in which more has focused Sony to promote their sale. It is without doubt the best cameras on the market, second only to his older brothers Z2 and Z3, as well as the iPhone 6 and S5.
Moreover, as the Xperia Z, is also waterproof and dust and is well built and includes the best of current hardware: 800 Snapdragon processor and 2GB of RAM. The Xperia Z1 has 5-inch 1080p and Z1 Compact has a 4.3-inch 720p. It has a brightness of 500 nits, on the edge of being either broad daylight. The battery behaves normal, although its size is 3000 mAh. With the latest updates to Android 4.4.4 behaves much better, so the update is mandatory.
The design can also be appealing to many potential buyers because of its manufacturing aluminum frame and rear glass, which removes from among the feeling plastic LG G2.

Microsoft has launched a great phone for all lovers of autofotos or selfies. The phone is fluid with its Snapdragon 400 and 1GB, and use instead of Windows Phone Android is always a plus to not have any performance issues with this terminal. The AMOLED screen as usual includes Nokia Clear Black technology, and its 4.7-inch screen with 1280x720 pixels resolution (313 dpi) makes it look sharper.
It's a great camera for autofotos since it has a 5 megapixel front camera with wide angle, and that allows us to take off our autofotos exactly as we want, alone or accompanied. For more quality shots when needed, the 6.5-inch rear camera with flash gives a good quality that will not disappoint anyone who does not want to resort to more expensive phones to take good photos.
