GADGETS ; 4G HANDSETS [Birmingham Post (England)]
(Birmingham Post (England) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Samsung Galaxy Note 3 From free on contract, www.phones4u.co.uk AN eye-pleasing 5.7inch 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. There's an S-Pen stylus tucked away inside to assist with doodling - sorry, note-taking - and 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've not seen LG on the scene for a while, and it looks like they're back with attitude. With an edge-to-edge high-resolution screen and - a first - no side controls, as they're all tucked away on the back, this model takes a bit of getting used to, but then people said that about the wheel at first...
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 high-resolution imagery and combines with a raft of features to create some of the best images you'll see from a smartphone.
iPhone5s From free on contract, www.phones4u.co.uk KEEPING its position in top spot takes plenty of innovation from the Apple team. Samsung are really snapping at their heels, so the brand's latest launch needed to stand out - and that it does. It might seem unnecessary to some, but the inclusion of a fingerprint scanner takes this model to the sci-fi level that consumers are seemingly hankering for. It also operates at breakneck speed.
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.
