Xperia Z wins it for me, closely followed by the One, don't think the P2 is quite up there with the best yet, definitely a good mid-high end device though!

I like the One better for Sense 5 and new generation processing power. The front facing speakers are a nice touch, too.

i prefer previous versions of Sense UI
this one is more like WP.

The only thing that's like WP is BlinkFeed, but you can just swipe left or right to the typical Sense layout.

BlinkFeed isn't even too much like WP, it's more like Google Currents than anything.

The p2 compares nicely to the others. It's down on ram but besides that its great. At a also great price. Besides I for one don't use all my ram(500mb) on my phone. Never going to use over a gig. The p2 is thin, got a big battery, good price, retina quality display, fast proccesor, and huge screen. Just wish for a sooner release date then June.

Boomsound and Snapdragon 600 make me pick the HTC One.

Design on HTC makes all the difference. They've got liitle lost on camera, but I have DSLR for that. Can't wait to try it.

Except IP57 cert, HTC One easily beat Xperia Z. In Spec. Build is another debatable topic.

HTC One gets the better design for me, but Xperia Z is great too at the water & dust proof. The specs both of them are great.

by design. by specs and camera until now THE ONE IS BETTER , rather the best. as it has been proved that camera in xperia z has not proved to b ver good as it should b , where as ultrapixel tech has rather more advantages and better shots. m not personally saying it but comparisons teells us the story. htc has got the BEST LOOKING DESIGN. great body.SENSE 5.0 all redefined, its damn good and more user friendly than sony UI.more over latest snapdragon 600 is the latest and the best so far. rest lets hope for the best GOOD LUCK HTC.

Its cheap cause of the quality in specs. Id prefer the xperia z over the one & p2. But still need a date for the u.s. version of the xperia z. The xperia z offer a sd card slot unlike the htc one

who need more than 32 or 64 GB ????? if you need more put your files on dropbox or any other cloud app

But the Xperia Z only comes with 16 GB, and is only expandable up to 32 GB, that means there's 48 GB of total storage you can have, whereas the One has a 64 GB variant. And knowing HTC they'll price the 64 GB version very competitively like they did with the One X+ on AT&T.

Unless you want to carry around multiple SD cards, which I think would be a hassle, you aren't going to get more memory with the Xperia Z.

The Xperia Z is a clear winner.

I think the only thing that detracts from the One is the lack of IP57.

The Z is great except for its lackluster screen brightness.

Oh, decisions, decisions...
