|Bottom line|| |
The $99.99 Sony Xperia Ion looks like a good Android deal but its weaknesses make it not worth even the budget price.
A few quibbles notwithstanding, the powerhouse HTC One is a beautifully crafted, near-ideal smartphone.
Its laundry list of features require time and effort to truly master, but the Galaxy S4 is the top choice for anyone looking for a big-screen, do-everything smartphone.
The Sony Xperia TL is a fantastic value and Sony's best U.S. smartphone yet.
You can't beat the price of the Moto G, but the more expensive and more powerful Nexus 5 remains your shrewdest unlocked Android option.
