|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.
The Sony Xperia TL is a fantastic value and Sony's best U.S. smartphone yet.
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.
Strong performance, high-end specs, and an ultra-affordable price make the Google Nexus 5 not just the best unlocked phone on the market, but the best Nexus phone by far.
