The Bottom Line Pumped with high-performing hardware and creative software features, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is an excellent, top-end phone that's neck and neck with the HTC One X. Though its plastic skin doesn't do its high price justice, Samsung's Galaxy Note 3 makes the most compelling case yet for a supersize phone. 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 HTC Incredible S might not impress the tech enthusiast crowd, but it works as a midtier Android smartphone, offering some nice improvements over its predecessor. With the 12-megapixel Sprint Flash, ZTE attempts to break new ground in features, but the Flash is a poor choice both as a phone and as a camera.
