The Bottom Line Sony's pricey, stylish Xperia S is packed with multimedia tricks but is undone by a slow processor and lackluster display. If beauty is your only priority, the Sony Xperia P will certainly satisfy, but power isn't this unlocked phone's forte. With its powerful processor, great camera, decent screen and gorgeous, waterproof design, the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is the best small Android phone around. The Xperia Z1S is the most impressive smartphone Sony has ever sold on any carrier, but an inferior screen makes Samsung's Galaxy handsets better deals. A few quibbles notwithstanding, the powerhouse HTC One is a beautifully crafted, near-ideal smartphone.
