Top 2013 Phones Comparison: Galaxy S4 vs Xperia Z vs HTC One

If you are in the market for a premium Android phone in 2013 then chances are that you will choose among the top three i.e Samsung’s Galaxy S4, HTC One or the water proof Sony’s Xperia Z. To make your selection process easier we are going to compare the specs of all these phones below. Personally, we are a bit inclined towards the HTC One because of the superb unibody aluminum. Why is that the deciding factor – it gives the phone a very exclusive premium look and besides all that processing power is not of much of a use as we go above the 1.5GHz processing power, we don’t have many apps except some games to utilize that much power.
