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.

Description

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).

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.

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.
