As it turned out, 2014 was a pretty good year for smartphone fans. There weren’t really any huge advances or mind-blowing innovations, but phones grew sleeker and more powerful than ever, and there were even a few surprises at the end of the year that blew us away. There are so many solid phones on the market now that it’s hard to keep track of them all, and if you’re currently shopping for a new handset that could definitely be a problem.

Thankfully, there are some great tools out there that really help us visualize the current state of the smartphone war.

FindTheBest is making a name for itself by creating tools that make it easy to compare devices, and now the company has issued a series of interactive charts that pit the manufacturers of the 32 most widely reviewed smartphones on the market against each other.

Because different people have different priorities when it comes to smartphones, the site has created a series of charts that focus on eight different key areas that are among the most important considerations when comparing smartphones. The charts group all popular smartphones from each top handset vendor to create an average, and then they graph those averages.

For example, this interactive chart shows the top vendors in order of battery life across all popular phone models:
