Verge score: 8.8 Verge score: 8.3

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

Built by LG, the Nexus 4 features a 4.7-inch 1280 x 768 IPS display, a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor — which Google claims is the fastest on the market — an 8 megapixel camera and a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, and up to 16GB of storage.
