    HTC One

    Another company that's desperate for a hit is HTC. Just this week, ZDNet's Matthew Miller just got his hands on one and here is what he had to say:

    It's a simple fact that HTC makes superb hardware and that the HTC One is their new undisputed champion. It did most everything right with the HTC One. See my hands-on report and gallery for all the details.

  • Slide 2 is VERY photo-shopped

    iphone as large as the other phones, I don't think so, maybe in 2008 where the phone is stuck in.
  • Nexus 4?

    Did you forget this one?

    • It's called March Edition for a reason...

      and the Nexus 4 was released in November. (officially, anyways)

      Performance wise, the N4 will not be able to match any of the new Android devices, and is therefore not a contender, even if the N4 hasn't been launched in your country.
  • What the heck is a Lumina?

    Oh.... you just forgot to proof read. Now I get it.
  • Who are you Andy Smith?

    Your article is not great journalism by a very long shot... it is a series of single photo pages, (to maximise page views?) and the content is pretty much just links to other zdnet articles. About half way through the slides, you give up even profiling phones, and profile other stories instead. There is no photo of you, and your bio is an error 404 page. WHO ARE YOU?
    • Welcome to ZDNet.

      You must be new.
      • Point taken... I've seen some of this before!

        They are way too fond of the clunky photo thing, I hate that! But some of the writers actually write articles, not just stale link-laden puffery like this, IMHO ...and most of them have faces and bios!
  • Nokia Lumia 920

    Mw wife likes her Nokia Lumia 920 much more than she did her Samsung Android phone. Way. Lots. Much easier to use and much more intuitive.
