So, here we are. The big phones of 2013 (well, the first half of it at least – we’ve still got the iPhone 5S / iPhone 6 to land at some point) have all landed and you’re probably wondering which is best.
Well, it’s not as easy as usual, as we have three stand-out contenders for the throne of best smartphone. Luckily for you fancy people we’ve spent weeks with all three and have put together this in-depth test to show where the HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S4 and Sony Xperia Z have strength and weakness.
So, onto the battle… it’s not going to be pretty, but at the [...]
Sony makes a lot of really nice things, but it has never taken smartphones seriously. That’s to change if Sony Mobile’s sales chief, Dennis van Schie, is to be believed.
Speaking to the Financial Times Deutschland, he basically acknowledged that Sony’s current phone lineup does not have a direct competitor to the iPhone or Galaxy S III.
“We will create in the near future a flagship model that can compete with Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy S III,” he said. A spokeswomen also noted that the model will be available at CES and Mobile World Congress in the first part of 2013.
Can’t wait for your high-speed Xperia Arc upgrade? Well, you’ll be glad to hear that Vodafone’s Xperia Arc S page has now gone live, and we’ve confirmed with the UK phone network that the curvy smartphone will also be available in-store from tomorrow. Signing up for a two year plan at £31 per month nets you the gradient blue version for free. Aside from a new super-charged 1.4GHz processor and a “3D sweep panorama” mode, other specs are all-but identical to the original. Certainly not a deal-breaker, with an Exmor-equipped 8.1 megapixel shooter and that 4.2-inch [...]
The Xperia Play’s incoming Android 2.3.4 update appears to add an extra nugget of functional goodness in the form of high-definition video-recording. What, the Xperia Play didn’t do so already? Nope, Sony Ericsson neglected to add that functionality to the phone’s five megapixel shooter from the start. Fortunately, the new software update rectifies this, so when you’re not blasting those PlayStation hits of yesteryear, you’ll be able to chronicle your pet’s adventures in crystal clear 720p.

Overview, design and feel
It’s been a busy old year for Sony Ericsson. As it struggles to regain a foothold in the market it was once sucha major player in, it’s been firing out more Android-based Xperia smartphones than long-lost relatives on an episode of Jeremy Kyle. And they’re not half bad either.
The Xperia Arc has been the flagship of 2011′s bunch. Arriving in the spring, it became the skinny poster girl for the Swedish-Japanese hybrid, showing off its amazing screen presence with the help of the Sony Reality Display (the bit that reproduces colour on the screen [...]
Sony refreshed its arc line-up at IFA 2011, with the company announcing the Sony Xperia Arc S, a smartphone that has been given something of a speed injection – Sony is quoting speeds 25 per cent faster than its predecessor, the Sony Ericsson Arc.

In the hand, the Arc is a beautiful piece of kit. Given that the original Arc is still one of the best-designed Android devices around it’s good to see that not much has been changed from a chassis point [...]

We have seen a tremendous growth in the availability of Touch Screen smart phones in the Market.
But someone like me would still want to have a physical keypad just to do things little fast. I currently Own a Symbian Mobile phone and the reason behind buying a Symbian phone was the availability of a physical keypad in Nokia n97. I had to settle down with it despite of the fact that I wanted to try my hands on Android powered mobile phone.
Well, this was in 2010 but thankfully in 2011, I have seen many Android mobile with physical QWERTY keypads.
If you are like me you surely would take a look [...]
