Stunning, rich-profile sound
HTC wanted a comeback and it brought its best with the HTC One. It is a brilliant device in virtually every aspect. Coming with a beautiful aluminum body that fits almost organically in the hand, it has a great and vivid, extremely sharp 4.7-inch screen. The stereo front speaker bring a small revolution in smartphone sound that you'll appreciate instantly when you hear it. Performance is flawless on the new Snapdragon 600 quad-core chip.
1080p video recording @ 30fps with HDR mode
So this is it - the One has brought out the best in HTC. It's sure as shooting that five different people will say that about five different HTC smartphones. And at least four of them will be right. But there're certain things that make this one the One.
Excellent build and ergonomics
The HTC One might be the most desirable phone available right now. Its metal-backed body feels fantastic in the hand, its screen is superb, performance is great and Sense 5 offers some interesting new features that you can choose to side-step if you prefer old-style Sense. The UltraPixel camera is a mite disappointing given the ballyhoo made at its launch, but it proves that HTC is one of just a few mobile companies trying something truly interesting.
Stunning design, quality aluminum alloy casing, superb full HD display
The HTC One is the company's best phone yet. You have my blessing: go ahead and buy one. It's not just fast, the display is superb and the design is elegant. Cutting edge CPUs and graphics are Android's bread and butter, much like PCs and it takes more to stand out: the HTC One has what it takes in terms of quality materials, build, design and solid software that doesn't overwhelm. Is it the perfect smartphone?
Snapdragon 600 chipset
Regardless of how well Samsung's soon-to-be-announced flagship does on the market, we'll continue to have a soft spot for the One. Last year, we were very impressed by the One X, but that wasn't enough. HTC pushed itself and made its sequel even more polished than the original. We love the phone's industrial design and the camera, while the Snapdragon 600 chipset and 1080p display aren't bad either.
Unparalleled photo & video quality, Lots of manual controls
With so much versatility behind it, like its various shooting modes and useful lossless zoom, it'll be hard for consumers to not consider this handset. However, its $300 on-contract price point slows its momentum down, seeing that it's still widely viewed as a pricey thing - and that's despite the fact that the 32GB iPhone 5 is priced the same. If we had to best describe this, it's essentially a Nokia Lumia 920 with a 41-megapixel camera. Sounds pretty accurate, right?
Brings a number of new software features
Better yet, it's Nokia that has delivered one last time. It's not the fact that they may never do it again that makes the Luma 1020 special. And it's definitely not why we're heaping praise on the phone. On their way out, Nokia are looking back at a lifetime of achievement. One last view from the top.
Capable of taking phenomenal photos
The Nokia Lumia 1020 faces an uphill battle: Not only is it competing against heavyweights such as the Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5, but it is also fighting against the stigma surrounding the Windows Phone OS. The Lumia 1020 is an excellent phone with one of the best all-around cameras out there, but its AT&T exclusivity and older hardware make it a hard sell. If you're an AT&T customer who has been curious about Windows Phone, I strongly urge you to pick up the Lumia 1020.
Fantastic camera, brilliant way of handling zoom
Take the very good Nokia Lumia 920 and graft the Nokia PureView 41 megapixel camera onto the back and you've got the Nokia Lumia 1020. Even better, tweak it with second generation image stabilization, some brilliant image processing software and handy image editing tools and you've got a camera that matches or beats most point and shoots and some DSLR cameras, despite the smaller lens.
Large screen, compact phone
Samsung didn't exactly catch us by surprise with the Galaxy S4. Pretty much all the hardware improvements like the faster processor, better camera, and 5" 1080p screen were expected. Samsung simply had to have those in the Galaxy S4 if it wanted its product to be relevant in 2013. However, it's the flawless implementation of all the features that makes the Galaxy S4 the superb smartphone that it is. Design-wise, the latest Samsung flagship is nothing special.
Stunning screen, Superfast processor, Great camera
Make no mistake - the Samsung Galaxy S4 is far, far more than a Galaxy S3 'S' - Samsung may be copying Apple according to some people, but it's not as brazen as the Cupertino brand in flogging the exact same design with a slightly uprated processor and calling it a new phone.
The Galaxy S4 is a great, great device in its own right, re-inventing what it means to own a brilliant smartphone in a number of ways.
More serious and stylish look
While the Samsung Galaxy S4's exterior might be its Achilles' heel, we can't blame Samsung for sticking with the Galaxy S brand image it spent so much resources trying to build (that phone sold over 50 million units too, so being associated with it cannot be too bad).
With the sheer number of excellent flagships to choose from, if you are looking for the best smartphone, you had it better than ever.
Stunning 5-inch Full HD screen
The Samsung Galaxy S4 might not look that different or have that one killer feature that sinks the competition, but it's a worthy successor to the Samsung Galaxy S3.
It's a true high-end powerhouse and undeniably one of the best phones on the market right now, albeit one that will relies a little too heavily on brand appeal and past successes rather than innovation and eye-catching design. Yes, it might not be the most stylish handset on the market, but nor is it a dog.
Huge display in a not so huge phone, excellent camera
The Samsung Galaxy line of smartphones is a juggernaut; like the iPhone, the next generation will sell well based simply on brand loyalty, trust and familiarity. Even so, the Samsung Galaxy S4 has a lot to offer, and though I wasn't overwhelmed with love for the Galaxy S III, the S4 is seriously tempting me. The superb camera and related features, comfortable feel in the hand, replaceable battery and software like Smart Stay and Air Gesture are hard to give up once you've used them.
A brilliant phone in almost every way
As we type this we have the SGS3 and the SGS4 on our desk. While, superficially, there's really not a lot of difference between the two, to hold, they couldn't feel more different. We really like the new, more square-feeling SGS4. At the back, we prefer the SGS3 aesthetically, although the case design of the new phone is nicer - albeit still plastic.
There are a stack more options here.
Large 720p display that performs as well as it looks
With all Windows Phones running nearly identical software and Microsoft employing strict hardware minimums it can be challenging for manufacturers to differentiate their products. Nokia has already chosen to focus on the camera, and HTC is producing their typical top-notch hardware. Samsung's Android approach has been to include an excess of niche software customizations, but with the less open Windows Phone platform they are not able to do this.
Nice screen for a mid-range smartphone, Good battery life
If you're on Sprint and are specifically looking for a Windows Phone, the Samsung ATIV S Neo is a better option than the HTC 8XT, largely because of its higher-resolution screen and better battery life. And while it requires an extra $50 initial investment, that's a tiny portion of what you'll pay over the required two-year contract.
Windows Phone 7 looks great on the screen
The HTC HD7 is an all in all pleasure to use. Unfortunately however, it isn't as much of a wow device as its Android 4.3" siblings, having been released far later than the EVO 4G, therefore lacking the edge and without the build quality of the HTC Desire HD or the new Sense UI's functional implementation. HTC's overlay upon Windows Phone 7 comes only in the form of HTC Hub, and is pretty underwhelming as it's not intended to be another Sense UI.
Easy to use OS.
The HD7 is one of the better looking large screen smartphones and feels speedy to use. We also like the modern looking and straight forward Windows Phone OS. However, the phone feels a bit like a missed opportunity, because what could have been a great entertainment device, is hampered by its disappointing screen and below par battery life.
great entertainment phone
The behemoth HTC HD7 has some impressive specs like a 4.3-inch screen, 16GB of storage, and a 5-megapixel camera with 720p video capture, but it does not support T-Mobile's speedy HSPA+ network. The behemoth HTC HD7 has some impressive specs like a 4.3-inch screen, 16GB of storage, and a 5-megapixel camera with 720p video capture, but it does not support T-Mobile's speedy HSPA+ network.
Design feels solid, including kickstand
If you're intrigued by Windows Phone 7, the HD7 is a tempting choice. It offers faster data speeds than the Samsung Focus (when you're within HSPA range), and its larger display makes typing and reading sites easier. However, we ultimately prefer the Focus because of its richer Super AMOLED screen and more pocket-friendly design.
The HD7 is the highest end looking Windows 7 phone at launch in terms of materials and design (the Samsung Focus is great looking but screams plastic).
If you're a T-Mobile customer looking to try a new Windows 7 Phone, the HD7 is a great way to start. It's not perfect, but the display size, classy looking hardware and kickstand are big pluses. Until the Dell Venue Pro hits retail shelves (if it ever makes the trip from online sale via Dell.com), the HD7 is also your only Windows 7 Phone selection on T-Mobile. There's much to like in Microsoft's brand new, clean slate OS; particularly the clean and stunning UI.
Massive screen gives you plenty of browsing space
Overall the Windows Phone 7 experience on the HD7 is presenting on the large scale, which fits it perfectly. Windows Phone 7, although in its infancy, does offer a compelling and competitive experience and we find ourselves waiting expectantly for a few apps to fall into place, such as YouTube to enable some degree of online video support.
Overall, the HTC Evo 4G is, hands-down, the best smartphone that Sprint has to offer and certainly ranks as one of the best Android phones on the market today.
The bottom line: The HTC Evo 4G is easily Sprint's best smartphone and one of today's top Android devices. It also shows the promise of 4G, which will grow as Sprint's WiMax network expands, but until there's broader 4G coverage, it's hard to agree with the mandatory premium data add-on fee.
The device is just perfect and more importantly the platform of google/android is exactly the right fit for this monster.
I really love what the HTC EVO 4G has going for it. I applaud Sprint for launching the first 4G device, even if it can't be fully utilized in one of the largest cities in the world. Its camera was a pleasure to use, the data speeds were on the slower side, but that didn't seem to matter for most of my daily web surfing. Android 2.1 offers a ton of features that many cell phone owners will love, and HTC's Sense gives it a beautiful finish.
sound was crisp and completely audible.
The Jolly Green Giant of smartphones has been reviewed, and we'd say that the HTC EVO 4G is one of the best models out there, even after spending quality time with its many competitors. No other phone provided such a power-packed arsenal of tricks in such a fast, sleek body. The EVO 4G excelled in the speed department, gave us plenty of applications and widgets, offered optimal Internet browsing, and proved itself a multimedia powerhouse.
The speaker on the Evo 4G delivered impressive volume when we streamed some of our favorite Pandora stations, and it delivered loud and clear directions when using the phone as a GPS navigator.
The HTC Evo 4G is undoubtedly Sprint's best smart phone to date, delivering nearly all the specs power users could possibly hope for in a well-crafted design. Though it may simply be too large for some, in many ways the Evo 4G is also the best Android phone yet, beating out the Droid Incredible because of its 720p video recording and 4G capability.
Call quality is very good
The HTC EVO on Sprint easily earns a place at the top and competes very well with the HTC Incredible, HTC HD2, Nexus One and iPhone. Even with the $10 upcharge, Sprint's plans are a very good value, and their coverage is generally solid. The EVO is attractive, well made and the screen is to die for. Once you've seen the 4.3" display, it's hard to go back to something smaller.
easily the best specced phone
Let us be crystal clear: we love this phone. Nay, we adore it. But the fact remains that it's still very much an Android device -- which means that if you don't like Android now, odds are good that even Android executed on the most amazing hardware to date won't do much to change your opinion of it.
The feel is solid, with no flaps or access doors on the sides.
The Sprint EVO 4G is an impressive device, though it isn't perfect. Voice quality reports are rather mixed, and the phone is somewhat larger than other devices. On the other hand, it's larger for a reason, and the 4.3-inch display is simply stunning.
If you are attracted to the idea of WiMAX speeds and mobile hotspot capabilities, and don't mind giving up the extra space in your pocket, the EVO 4G deserves a much closer look.
The level of integration with Google services is second to none (and rightfully so).
Out of all of the devices that Sprint carries, the HTC EVO 4G is the carrier's "wow" phone. It's an exclusive in the leagues of the Apple iPhone, Motorola DROID, HTC DROID Incredible, and could be the driver for a quarter of customer growth (which the company needs). With a 4G connectivity, fast processor, and near-flawless performance, it's a fantastic multimedia and internet device - and is good in the call department, too.
Call quality over the network in downtown San Francisco was good.
The Palm Pre Plus has some quirks--the cramped keyboard and slow software in particular--but it makes a good iPhone alternative on AT&T.

shots did look good, if not quite up to par with those from the amazing Nokia N97 .
Last year, Palm turned CES upside down with the Palm Pre – one of the few new smartphones to make the iPhone look dated. After a slow-but-auspicious launch over the summer, Palm returned to CES this year with a much less earth-shattering pair of refreshes: the Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus. Besides migrating to Verizon, the Pre Plus brings a handful of modest updates, including a handful of exterior tweaks, more memory, and doubling storage from 8GB to 16GB.
