The BlackBerry Z10 is the first all-touch smartphone to run the BlackBerry 10 OS and represents a major bet by the company to compete in a modern smartphone ecosystem. It features a 4.2-inch multitouch LCD display and fast LTE connectivity.

Description

The BlackBerry Z30 is the fourth Blackberry 10 smartphone featuring a 5-inch Super AMOLED display, a 1.7GHz processor, quad-core graphics and the biggest battery ever found in a BlackBerry measured at 2,880mAh.

The successor to the iPhone 5, the 5S brings several new features to the table, most notably a gold color variant and fingerprint scanner called Touch ID. A significantly improved camera has also been added, offering fast and slow motion video along with a burst mode. The 5S is the first iPhone to run on a 64-bit architecture, which means improved performance in almost every way.

The Nokia Lumia 1020 is a handset from the Finnish manufacturer. It is equipped with a 41-megapixel 'PureView' camera, runs Windows Phone 8, and has a 4.5-inch AMOLED display.

The latest in the popular line of Samsung's Galaxy S smartphones, the Galaxy S4 ups the ante with a larger 5-inch 1080p display and 2600 mAh battery to match. Android 4.2.2 Jelly Beans runs on either an Exynos 5 or Snapdragon 600 processor (depending on region).
