Aside from its usual routine of reviews and device comparisons, Consumer Reports annually releases a “10 top electronics products” list towards the end of every year. Now the 2013 edition of the list has arrived.
The publication determines the top ten based on a variety of reasons, including a company’s ability to push technology or performance to new levels. So what kind of products made the list this year? Considering the American obsession with all things Apple, it should come as no surprise to see the Apple iPhone 5S make the list. in the Android camp, the LG G2 managed to steal the spotlight.
Consumer Reports notes that the G2 stands out thanks to its unique volume/power button placement, it’s “stunning 5.2-inch display and a battery that doesn’t know when to quit.” Additionally they mention special smartphone features such as auto answering when you hold the phone to your ear.
Ever since the LG Optimus G, it seems that LG has really been bringing its A-game when it comes to its higher-end Android devices, so it’s nice to see that the company’s efforts aren’t going unnoticed.
Besides the iPhone 5S and LG G2, most of the other products are cameras or televisions, though the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX and Google Chromecast also make the list. What do you think of the LG G2, do you agree that it is “top ten” material or do you believe another Android device would have been fit the bill here?
