At first glance, Apple's iPhone 5 looks very similar to its predecessor but on comparison you'll notice it has a larger, 4-inch display and aluminum unibody construction. Its the first iPhone to include LTE connectivity as well as Apple's "Lightning" data connector for charging and sync.

Description

Successor to Samsung's popular Galaxy S II, the Galaxy S III adds in 4G LTE connectivity and a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED (Pentile) display, as well as 2GB of RAM. The Galaxy S III runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with Samsung's new version of TouchWiz, which takes cues from nature.

Nokia's smartphone, the Lumia 920, comes with a significant spec increase over the previous generation. While the Lumia 920 predictably bumped the display size up to 4.5-inches and runs Windows Phone 8, it also adds in some more unique tweaks like wireless charging and an 8.7 megapixel "PureView" 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 LTE version of the Galaxy Nexus is exclusive to Verizon Wireless in the United States. In terms of hardware, the Galaxy Nexus features a 4.65-inch 720p HD Super AMOLED display, 32GB of on-board storage, 1GB of RAM, LTE 4G connectivity, and Near Field Communications technology.
