The best Android phones

Samsung Galaxy S3

Samsung Galaxy S3
Probably the biggest name when it comes to Android smartphones, and second only to the iPhone when it comes to smartphones in general. Samsung’s flagship smartphone is an incredibly impressive bit of kit that should be very fast thanks to its quad-core processor.
Its 8Mp camera looks the part and an incredibly sharp 4.8-inch screen means web browsing should be good – although it may cause problems getting it into your pocket as it makes the phone rather large.
To find out how it did in our tests

LG Optimus 4X HD

LG Optimus 4X HD
You may not have heard as much about LG’s Optimus 4X as you would have about Samsung’s or HTC’s main handsets, but that doesn’t mean the Optimus isn’t a fine phone. A powerful quad-core processor means the 4X will be able to plough through apps without any trouble and a 4.7-inch screen gives you more than enough space when browsing the web or playing games.
The usual 8Mp camera comes included so it should be good for photos and a larger than average battery will hopefully keep it running for a decent amount of time.
But how did it do in our lab tests? Find out in our LG Optimus 4X HD review.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Samsung Galaxy Note 2
Toeing the line between tablet and smartphone the Note 2 has a gigantic 5.5-inch screen meaning squeezing it in a pocket will be difficult and using it with one hand will be all but impossible.
But the large screen size does have its advantages and it should be a good choice if you’ll be doing a lot of web browsing or watching videos. You also get Samsung’s S-Pen, to use with special apps.

HTC One X

HTC One X
HTC’s quad-core processor smartphone the One X is a very impressive sounding smartphone with specs that put it right up there with the Samsung Galaxy S3. As well as its fast processor the smartphone has a 8Mp camera with a range of top features.
A 4.7-inch screen means surfing the web and using apps should be easy, although this does mean that its a pretty big phone. A large battery should also keep it running for a decent amount of time.
Find out if it was good enough for a Best Buy award in our HTC One X review.

Sony Xperia T

Sony Xperia T
The phone of none other than James Bond, the Xperia T is Sony’s latest and greatest smartphone but how does it compare with the competition? Featuring a 4.6-inch screen the Xperia T isn’t the smallest phone in the world, but this does give you plenty of space when using the phone and browsing the web
The biggest feature of the Xperia T is the camera. This has a very impressive resolution of 13Mp, although megapixels aren’t a guarantee of picture quality so we’ve put it through our full lab tests to see how good it really is. It only has a dual-core processor – compared with some rivals’ quad-core chips – although in everyday use this will be more than fast enough for pretty much anyone.
