7 Smartphones That Stole The Show in 2013!

It was a year that was sprinkled with record-busting camera sensors and big phones packed in plastic shells and razor fast processors; all of which combined to blow a hole the size of Neptune in every tech geek’s mind.
7 Smartphones That Stole The Show in 2013!
Having waded through the sea of ultra-fast processors and awe-inspiring sensors, we picked out the seven smartphones that are worth every penny - And the multiple bank robberies that it’ll take to afford them:

iPhone 5S

Its hard not to wax too poetic about the iPhone 5s design, is how one tech critic put it. When it comes to a new iPhone, it’s hard to maintain any degree of calm, as we’ve learnt. Tech critics applauded the Apple’s latest offering on its, “New space gray finish which is more visually striking than the black it replaces. With the iPhone 5s, Apple once again wins the right to claim the title of best smartphone available.” 

Samsung Galaxy S4

Samsung meanwhile added another winner to its basket with the fourth addition to the Galaxy S family, the much touted Galaxy S4. Tech critic Kevin Tofel observes, The Samsung Galaxy S 4 looks a lot like last year’s model; until you turn it on. The improved screen is crisp and the device is filled with software improvements while another critic raves, The company pushes the envelope with technologies and features that keep the rest of the industry on its toes.”

Sony Xperia Z1

With its swanky glass front, new aluminum frame and a trail of busted water-resistance records lying in its wake, the Xperia Z1 has everything going for it. As Andrew Hoyle from CNET put it, “The Xperia Z1 is an undeniably beautiful piece of kit. The waterproof design helps keep it safe from all manner of liquids that would put an end to most other phones and its screen is better than ever.”

Nokia Lumia 1020

Kicking up the cameraphone war a notch is the latest cadet from the Lumia clan, the Nokia Lumia 1020 whose 41 megapixel camera blew the competition right out of the water. The general consensus on Nokia’s flagship device remained that,"Nokia has basically set the bar for the rest of the smartphone imaging world – in terms of both hardware and software features,” while many set aside a special mention for, “The simply stunning photos that make the Lumia 1020 the ultimate cameraphone."


As the battle heated up between Samsung & Apple, HTC stepped into the battle rink with HTC One in tow, packed with sound enhancement in the form of HTC Boom Sound, dual frontal stereo speakers and Beats Audio. "If any smartphone has a shot at success in 2013, it's this one. The first time you see the One, there's a "Whoa..." moment. And after you hold it, and use it, that astonishment bleeds into awe. The One commands respect," raved critics.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Although not a favorite with those who prefer skinny jeans, Samsung’s flagship phablet, the Note III paved the way for further dominance of the smartphone market. One review praised the Galaxy Note 3 for sticking close to the winning formula; “It enlarges the Super AMOLED display of the Note II to 5.7 inches, adds a bombastic 3GB of RAM, raises the camera resolution to 13 megapixels, and simultaneously trims the fat so it can be a millimeter thinner and a shade lighter.” 

Sony Xperia Z

Sony meanwhile seems determined not to cut its rivals any slack, what with Xperia Z gobbling 24 percent of the market share straight off the mark. "The Sony Xperia Z combines looks, power and connectivity to supply one of the most impressive Android experiences we've seen in quite some time,” raved tech guru Damien McFarren.
