GREATGADGETS [Hull Daily Mail (England)]
(Hull Daily Mail (England) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Samsung Galaxy Note 3, from free on contract, www.phones4u.co.uk An eye-pleasing 5.7in OLED display really brings the screen action to life. Although certainly more sizeable than your average smartphone, the benefits are clear, and it still fits into a back pocket. As a step aside from other manufacturers in design terms, the back of this handset has a sophisticated leather finish.
LG G2 - Pounds 399.99, www.three.co.uk Not only will the powerful processor and 2GB of RAM give you speedy multitasking prowess, the makers have also tucked in a decent battery, meaning you can get a full day's work out of this powerhouse handset. We have not seen LG on the scene for a while, and it looks like it is back with attitude. With an edge-to-edge high-resolution screen and - a first - no side controls, as they are all tucked away on the back, this model takes a bit of getting used to.
iPhone 5s, from free on contract, www.phones4u.co.uk Keeping its position in top spot takes plenty of innovation from the Apple team. Samsung is really snapping at its heels, so the brand's latest launch needed to stand out - and that it does. The inclusion of a fingerprint scanner takes this model to the sci-fi level that consumers are seemingly hankering for.
Samsung Galaxy S4, Pounds 496.80, www.pixmania.co.uk About the best Samsung yet, definitely had the Apple execs in a flutter on release, and with technologies unique to the South Korean outfit, I suspect their sleepless nights are set to continue.
The S4 features eye-monitoring technology that keeps watch on your ocular activity and does smart things, like pause video when you look away.
Nokia Lumia 1020, from free on contract, www.carphonewarehouse.com This is not the best mobile ever, nor is it the best camera we've seen, but it is, hands down, the best camera-phone ever created. The incredible 41 megapixel sensor lets you shoot super highresolution imagery and combines with a raft of features to create some of the best images you'll see from a smartphone.
Sony Xperia Z1, from free on contract, www.dialaphone.com Available in three colours, this offering from Sony is certainly a bold challenge to the more established manufacturers, and states their ambitions very clearly. This well-built and beautifully styled handset ticks plenty of form boxes and, function wise, is certainly a contender.
