The iPhone 5 on AT&T is a classic. The carrier is now rolling out and expanding its 4G LTE network, and this is the first iPhone to run on LTE. That means cellular data speeds often faster than those of your home Internet connection. It’s also the best iPhone yet with a bigger, 4-inch screen and upgraded camera and hardware.
The Galaxy S III is a dream gift for Android lovers. It’s a different form factor than the iPhone with its much larger, 4.8-inch screen. It’s also extremely powerful coming with 2GB of RAM for extremely fast multitasking and browsing, and supports 4G LTE.
The Nokia Lumia 920, the first Windows Phone 8 device with Nokia’s amazing PureView imaging technology, offers simply the best camera after the 808 PureView. And we’ve already seen how well it performs in low light conditions, so all you party-goers will finally be able to capture those special moments in a club or in the evenings. The Lumia 920 runs on Windows Phone 8 and Nokia is also adding neat little features like wireless charging to it.
The HTC One X+ LTE is the prettiest Android device to come out yet, and now it’s fixed the battery problem of the original One X. It features a whopping 64GB of internal storage, all for a price that’s much lower than other 64GB devices.
The Galaxy Note II is the perfect choice for those who watch and read big. And we mean literally - it comes with a 5.5-inch high-res screen and the latest of Samsung’s chip factory.
The new iPad released in 2012 with a whopping 2048 x 1536-pixel 9.7-inch display is yet to be beaten in terms of display quality, and that’s telling given the fact that it’s been out for nearly half a year. It’s still the one tablet with most apps and best all-around experience.
