No surprise HTC One score the lowest. That Ultrapixel camera is the most failure camera ever produce in Mobile Phone.

S4 is one of the best,which it holds itself well, considering all these cameras, bar the HTC One, are newer and feature more technology in them. People's delusional dislike for Samsung is appalling quite frankly.

CORRECTION: "We find it convenient that two separate shutters have been added – one for taking photos and another for recording videos – so there is no need to switch manually between modes as the case is with the Z1 and the G2." The Z1 has the same double shutter: one for video and one for a photo. You can see this from your own picture of the camera screen. The HTC One also has this same feature. Only the LG, Nexus and the Nokia are lacking this feature.

I have tried many of the big phones this year. I narrowed it down to the LG G2 and MOTO X. Both have one serious thing in common. Build quality. They are both very sturdy. As far as performance there is a difference but for the everyday user it goes to the MOTO X. For those who like speed, then it is the G2. I like Samsung but the phones feel very light. Not sturdy at all. I do like that you can take the back off and replace the battery. Overall if I had to choose one phone I would end up with the MOTO X. It has so much going for it and that screen colour is amazing. GOOGLE, MOTOROLA and LG. Nice work. 2014 should see them dominate along with others and grab what is left of the once mighty and innovative APPLE.APPLE crumble anyone?

Samsung S4 smokes my G2 for quality and that real look. I await the S 5. It will be the phone for 2014.
