Smartphone technology is evolving so rapidly, that most phone manufacturers release a new version every year, which makes it a little difficult to keep up with the latest phones out there. If you are a fan of Windows phones, we have decided to make it easier for you to figure out which phone you should buy this year, by creating a list of the top 5 Windows phones in 2015, which is listed below.

5. Nokia Lumia 635

This is a very well designed phone, with 4G LTE, that is very reasonably priced at $69.99. The phone has a 4.5 inch screen, with a very good 854×480 pixel resolution display, a 5 mega pixel camera, and a 1.2 GHz quad core processor. The Lumia 635 also runs on the latest Windows phone 8.1 software.

For those who enjoy accessorizing their phones, the Lumia 635 has a lot of colorful interchangeable cases to choose from. The only negative thing about this phone is the fact that the app store doesn’t have much of a selection, and gets new apps a while after they are available on iOS and Android. But at its price, that’s a small sacrifice to make.

4. Nokia Lumia 830

This is a very stylish phone that has a lot of cool features, the most impressive of which is the PureView Camera. The camera allows you to record videos in 4K, it also has dynamic flash and auto HDR, and also allows you to get better quality pictures and video in low light situations. The phone has a 10 megapixel camera, and a five inch display screen, that plays back in 720p. The battery life is also very impressive, and you can go a full day without charging, even when the power saving options are turned off.

3. Nokia Lumia 1520

Nokia went big with the Lumia 1520, the phone has a 6 inch screen, that displays 1080p HD, it has a quad core Snapdragon 800 processor, which is a first for Windows smartphones, and a 20 megapixel camera. The phone is the fastest Windows phone ever made, and is surprisingly slim and light for a phone of its size. The only negative about this phone is that using it with one hand can be a little difficult, because of its size.

2. HTC One M8 For Windows

If you are looking for a Windows phone with an excellent display, this is the phone for you. The HTC phone looks more stylish than the Nokia Windows phones, it has a 5 inch screen, which is an upgrade from the 4.7 inches the previous model had. The screen displays in 1080p, allowing you to watch your videos in full HD. The audio on the HTC phone is also very good, and is powered by a quad core processor. The only negative about this phone is the camera, which actually has some cool features, but doesn’t produce pictures as sharp as some of the other cameras available. Other than that, this is probably one of the best Windows phones you can buy.

1. Nokia Lumia 1020

It’s one of the best Windows 8 phones on the market with a superb camera boosting a 41 megapixel sensor and 4.5” display. It has an impressive 2GB of RAM and a 1500mhz Dual Core processor, and because Windows Mobile 8 is so efficient there isn’t any task this phone can’t handle. Video is impressive with an HD capture / zoom and multiple microphones for ultra clear recording.
