Huawei's latest flagship device, the Ascend D quad, is supposedly "the world's fastest smartphone." The D quad is definitely a sight to behold, particularly the 4.5-inch 720p display — the screen's very bright, and the viewing angles are excellent. It's not the thinnest phone we've seen, but its 8.8mm body definitely cuts a slim figure, and actually feels smaller in the hand than most 4.5-inch phones.

Description

The Optimus Vu by LG is a stylus-equipped LTE smartphone featuring a 5-inch IPS LCD with a 4:3 aspect ratio and a 1024 x 768 resolution. It runs Android 2.3 on a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm processor, has 32GB of internal storage, and an 8-megapixel camera on the rear plus a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.

The HTC One X is an LTE device powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core SoC clocked at 1.5GHz, and features a 4.7-inch 720p display protected by Corning's Gorilla Glass. HTC has put a version of its Sense skin 4.0 on top of Google's operating system, and also added Beats Audio integration.

The HTC One S is an ultra-thin (7.95mm) Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone, coming exclusively to T-mobile in the US. The One S features a aluminum unibody construction, is powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core SoC clocked at 1.5GHz, and features a 4.3-inch qHD (960 x 540) display. HTC has put a new version of its Sense skin 4.0 on top of Google's operating system, and also added Beats Audio integration.

A mid-range device in Sony's Xperia line, the Xperia P has a unibody aluminium frame with a "WhiteMagic" 4-inch qHD display, which adds an additional stripe of white pixels to the standard RGB layout to enable better performance in sunlight.
