1. HTC One
With a less than stellar past couple of years, HTC has pulled out all the stops with its latest flagship.
While the name seems a little confusing given it has dropped a letter from last year's One X, inside is an all new phone packed full of awesome features designed to give the user a much fuller mobile experience.
From Zoe, the camera function that creates video highlight reels, and BoomSound, for better speaker performance. Sense has been given a complete overhaul as well.
It's not perfect - battery life is still rather lacking, as is the lack of expandable memory. Given these things were issues in the One X last year, we really hoped HTC would learn from its mistakes.
But the strength of the HTC One is that it still manages to overcome those obstacles to be the best phone currently on the market.
The Nexus 4 may be cheaper, the iPhone 5 may be a little more Apple-friendly and the Galaxy S3 may be a litte sleeker in design, but ultimately the HTC One combines its strengths into a package that stands above all the others.
