As 2014 is coming to an end we look back at the big events of the year in the smartphone world. The first half of 2014 was dominated by Android flagships like Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One M8, LG G3, OnePlus One and Sony Xperia Z2. The second half gave us Apple’s flagship iPhones, BlackBerry Passport, Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Google Nexus 6 and Xiaomi Mi 4. It was a year when BlackBerry went back to its roots and launched enterprise focused smartphones in the form of BlackBerry Passport and BlackBerry Classic. According to a recent poll on Smartphone4me BBM Channel C000D98CC, nearly 65% voters like BlackBerry Passport as the ‘Best Smartphone of 2014’. On the contrary Apple has followed Samsung’s footsteps and launched two large screen iPhones in the form of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. It was a bad year for the Korean giant as sales of flagship devices like Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 didn’t meet expectations. HTC, LG and Sony all struggled to make an impact in this cut throat smartphone market.
Next year, there is plenty to look forward to in Smartphone world. BlackBerry is expected to launch BlackBerry Z50 and BlackBerry Visa. Apple iPhone 7, HTC One M9 and Samsung Galaxy S6 are the other notable flagship smartphones to look forward to in 2015.
