Buying a new smartphone is not an easy task. Given how many brands and models are out there, finding the one that fits your wants and needs can take a long time. If you’re a faithful member of the Android Army, however, narrowing down your choices just got a whole lot easier.

Google has released a phone matchmaking tool that ask you a series of questions and prunes its database of phones accordingly. If you answer truthfully, you should end up with the device that deserves to be in your hand.

The quiz is pretty basic: What do you use your phone for? How much time do you spend on it each day? Answering those two questions a total of three times produces a bunch of potential matches for you to consider.


Results include both new and older models, all of which offer features resembling your parameters but spread across various price points.

To save you even more time, we went ahead and answered the questionnaire for you! Here are the Android phones you should own, based on the tool’s recommendations.

If you take at least five selfies a day, upload the best ones on Instagram, and text your besties non-stop

Top matches: LG G4, HTC One (M9), and Motorola Droid Turbo


If you use it to constantly stream your Spotify playlists, watch YouTube videos, and play Trivia Crack 

Top Matches: Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and LG G4


If you’re regularly on a tight schedule and are only using your smartphone for basic functions (talking and occasional texting)
