So, where's LG? :huh:

How come they didn't highlight which processor and graphics is best?

Non-removable battery, no microSD card slot - :thumbsdown: :uhuh:

The highlighted specs are the highest rated specs in their respective categories, not necessarily the better hardware ;)

I went for specs when choosing the sgs2 but it wasn't nearly as good an experience as my old desire I had before. The raw specs really don't show how polished HTC's sense is, there are so many little touches making the phone so much more usable that the little raw power samsung has is lost with all the extra work you have to do to do the things sense does for you....

Of all the phones here, HTC One has the best form factor, the phone is just simply gorgeous.

I'd say the HTC One, because both the S4 and the Z fail miserably (from my point-of-view) due to their absurd screen size. 4.7 inch is already too big as it is, 5.0 inch is no longer a phone and should not be compared to phones but to "phablets". iPhone 5 is a joke (don't get me started) and the Lumia is using specs of an older generation.

Personally, I wouldn't get ANY of these phones. All of their specs are useless, way too much power for a mere smartphone. I recently got a Galaxy Nexus even though I could afford a newer phone but I simply didn't see any upside other than bragging.

Just my two cents.

Great information you have shared. It is brilliantly comprise all the leading phones. But my vote for the Galaxy S4. Its truly a companion of human being.

Lumia 920 is pretty fast and has a great camera. Galaxy Nexus is an awesome phone, you can try out CyanogenMod for extra performance/features. And yeah you're right, no body "needs" that much power, maybe for taking full HD video, but I'm not sure it requires so much power. Most of the people with a smart phone use it for texting/social purposes, some don't even bother or know how to change their ringtone lol.

The Galaxy Nexus is amazing, I'm using Purity which offers a bit more options than CM and I even down-clocked it to 800Mhz. The only thing I hate about it is the bland look of AOSP but nothing is perfect I guess :D
