The Bottom Line The $99.99 Sony Xperia Ion looks like a good Android deal but its weaknesses make it not worth even the budget price. A few quibbles notwithstanding, the powerhouse HTC One is a beautifully crafted, near-ideal smartphone. With its powerful processor, great camera, decent screen and gorgeous, waterproof design, the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is the best small Android phone around. Its laundry list of features require time and effort to truly master, but the Galaxy S4 is the top choice for anyone looking for a big-screen, do-everything smartphone. The Sony Xperia TL is a fantastic value and Sony's best U.S. smartphone yet.
