|Bottom line|| |
While the LG Nexus 4 wins on internal performance and user experience, anyone shopping for an unlocked phone should consider a comparable LTE handset first.
Sony's pricey, stylish Xperia S is packed with multimedia tricks but is undone by a slow processor and lackluster display.
Despite weak software, the Samsung Galaxy Beam's bright projector pushes boundaries, and strong smartphone features make it a worthy standalone device.
