1. Sony Xperia Z

Sony has made sure all the features you’d expect in a high-end smartphone are there. NFC and 4G LTE are present and accounted for, and backed up by 1.5GHz quad-core CPU, a brilliant 13MP camera and an exceptional 5-inch screen with a pixel density of 443ppi (compared to the iPhone 5's 324ppi). There's no two-ways about it - Sony's latest flagship is a monster smartphone.
