Description

The HTC One is an Android Jelly Bean, LTE handset with an aluminum unibody construction and features a 4.7-inch, 1080p display and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 600 chipset with a quad-core 1.7GHz processor. It comes with front- and rear-facing 1080p cameras with an f/2 aperture and optical image stabilization.

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 Xperia Z is Sony's flagship phone for 2013 featuring a 5-inch, 1080p display, a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor plus an Adreno 320 GPU, LTE connectivity, and a new 13-megapixel Exmor RS camera sensor. It runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, has glass on its front and back, and is water-resistant up to one meter.
