Sony Xperia S

Since splitting from Ericsson, Sony has finally produced some amazing handsets, with the Xperia S a firm favourite in the current crop from the Japanese tech giant.

There are plenty of positives to pull from the Xperia S, with the new HD screen featuring Sony's Bravia TV technology, 12MP camera and dual-core processor all combining to make one of the finest smartphones of 2012.

Also claiming a four-and-a-half star rating in our Sony Xperia S review, the handset comes in a little cheaper than its more powerful rivals, making it a top option in the band below the quad-core pack.

McCann said: "The Xperia S can't match the Galaxy S3 or One X in terms of features or specs, but for those on slightly tighter budgets it provides an excellent smartphone experience."
