Sony Xperia Z : The Sony sensation

Last year , Sony introduced to the world the very first water and dust resistant phone, Sony Xperia Z. Sony’s flagship boasts of a 5-inch screen, a 13 MP back camera coupled with HDR recording, a 2 MP front facing camera and 1080p resolution. Overall, Sony has never delivered better. In the very first quarter, Sony shipped about 8.1 million devices and expected to make $72.3 billion by the end of this year. The phone not only enchanted the users with its sleek design and powerful snapdragon pro processor but its water and dust resistant body made the comfortably ensconced Samsung, question its modernistic view.blackberry_assistant_interface


Samsung Galaxy S4: Another Brick in the wall… but no that sturdy

Soon enough Samsung replied with its latest flagship, the Samsung galaxy S4. To retain its edge Samsung played its multitasking card and added funky features like S-health and S-Translator. The enhanced functionality of its Smart Stay and Air View (scrolling down the phone with eye gestures) elements definitely made eyes roll (pun intended). The vibrant and bright touchwiz interface coupled with super AMOLED 4.99 inch display of Samsung galaxy S4 left many fans and tech analysts agog. However, its plastic body and stale design (almost similar to its predecessor Samsung Galaxy S3) earned brickbats and pushed it to a lower pedestal as compared to the mighty Sony Xperia Z and the recently launched HTC One.

HTC One: It is a Scorcher

The HTC One on the other hand with its unibody aluminum design and perfectly sized 4.7-inch super LCD 3 display, has both looks and substance. Carved out of Corning Gorilla Glass 2, HTC One is almost scratch resistant and its innovative 4inch ultrapixel CMOS sensor is a novelty in the mobile space. Certainly, this latest offering from HTC is high end and its distinct image capturing capabilities puts it way ahead of others.
