Google launches new Android website to help you find the right phone
If you want a new Android smartphone, but you're not really sure which one would suit you best, Google can help. The Mountain View giant today launched a new website that enables you to find the right Android phone, suggesting a list of devices based on the features that you think you need. For now, the website is only suggesting devices available in the US.

You first have to tell Google what will you be using your phone for (taking photos, calls, being productive, web browsing, expressing your style, etc), then you can choose a carrier, a price category, and even a size category.

Of course, if you browse the web in search of phone-related info all day long, you probably know what device you're going to buy anyway (or at least you have a list of options), so Google's new website is likely not going to be of great help, suggesting products that you already knew you may want to get. Still, the website is pretty fun to try, and there are certainly customers out there for whom it will be useful. Check it out at the source link below, and let us know what you think about it.

Price, location, and screen size would be good addition. My choices led me to S6, G4 and M9.

It does list the screen size. Price and location would mean you would have to input your location, and for the price you would have to enter the carrier, but not only that the carriers have deals on sometimes, prices can drop for a particular handset. Also prices can vary depending on your location.

It suggested the Note 4, S6 and G4 but I'm a stock Android guy.

I got GS6, G4, and M9. 2 out of 3 accuracy isn't too shabby but you would hope people are not that lazy to use this instead of doing proper research. This isn't Apple where their consumers need to be spoon fed what to buy.

Strangely along with the S6/S6 Edge and M9 I also got the G3 instead of the G4. I wonder if anybody will get the Z3 as a result of this page.

They seem to only be high-end phones. Note 4, M9, Nexus 6, etc. Even the most basic of uses (a few texts, calls, and emails) gives S6/Edge, G4, Turbo. I mean, I understand Google wants to give a good impression, and the best way to do that is to showcase your best phones, but there ARE good budget devices out there...

waste of time. they did not ask for screen size, so they offer all phones that are too big for me. S5,S6 and G4...all flagships, and i really don't nead flagship for web browsing, 2h of talks and social networks.
