It’s the month of Holidays, and shopping for gifts is inevitable. Buying your loved ones cell phones is always the nicest of ideas. So Brad and I have decided to go over a list of phones that you might want to consider as Christmas presents.

5. HTC One
When it comes to a gorgeous looking cell phone, HTC One comes in my mind first. Its eye-catching sleek aluminum body with a dominant quad-core processor is like a living beast on your palm. The HTC UltraPixel Camera feature takes up to 20 photos in single command, and the BoomSound feature with a dual frontal stereo speakers powered by built-in amplifiers delivers bigger sound with less distortion. Its BlinkFeed feature makes you go heavier on social networking, and the interactive TV guide will help you to be notified for all your favorite programs in a friendly step-by-step manner. It’s not very expensive and it’s a beautiful cell phone to carry. So if your loved one is into social networking and TV shows, HTC One is the phone you should order

4. Google Nexus 5

And not to mention it comes with an excellent affordable pricing. It’s a very solid phone to carry as it performers smooth and has a high-end specs. If not among other brands, Nexus 5 is clearly the best Nexus phone till today. Fast, stunning, and filled with useful features, Nexus 5 is the phone I’d personally buy to my loved ones, so why not you?

iPhone 5S is easily the fastest and most advanced Apple smartphone to date. Powered by a next-gen CPU and motion tracking chip, iPhone 5S is also equipped with an improved camera and a clever fingerprint sensor. iOS 7 includes few nice features including AirDrop that comes very handy for file transfers, and iWork app suite absolutely free. Its 64-bit processor is considered as the most powerful processor to date and has a huge potential to become the very smartphone gamers crave to carry. Apple is never cheap and so isn’t iPhone 5S.
