Best mobile phones to buy in 2013

Smartphones have never been bigger. Soon enough every pocket will have a mini-computer, and the sheer variety of smartphones out there means there’s something for everyone, at almost any budget.

Once you’ve used a smartphone every day, you’ll never look back. Here’s our pick of the bunch, from Android

 

Samsung Galaxy S4

One of the best smartphones just got better
Samsung Galaxy S4

 

Our Expert Opinion

The Galaxy S4 is the update to the Galaxy S3, our favourite Android smartphone for the last year. It’s possibly the most hyped phone of all time, but thankfully it’s still an impressive handset.

Despite the phone’s huge 5in screen, it manages to be slim and light, and weighs just 130g. It’s the first phone to use an AMOLED screen with a Full HD resolution, which gives it a huge pixels-per-inch figure of 441, up from 306ppi on its predecessor. The operating system and web pages are, as you’d expect, hyper-sharp.

The S4 uses the same Qualcomm chipset as the HTC One, but it’s clocked at 1.9GHz rather than 1.7GHz. The phone is awesomely fast in both everyday apps and running 3D benchmarks. Despite all this power, the S4’s 2,600mAh battery managed to keep it running for ten hours and 43 minutes when playing back video, which is one of the most impressive figures we’ve seen.

The S4 is a lot of smartphone for your money. It’s a relatively conservative design, yet has a bigger screen and battery than the HTC One in a smaller package. You may prefer the HTC One’s metal body, but if you don’t get on with HTC’s extensive operating system tweaks, the Galaxy S4 is the phone for you.

Motorola RAZR HD

A great alternative to Samsung’s Galaxy S3
Motorola RAZR HD

 

Our Expert Opinion

The RAZR HD is a powerful and good-looking Android phone with a huge battery, and it’s also good value on contract.

We liked the Kevlar back panel, splashproof coating and scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass screen, and the large 2,530mAh battery meant the phone managed a huge 14 hours in our video playback test.

The phone’s 4.7in screen is an AMOLED model with a 1,280×720-pixel resolution, and is just as impressive as that of the Samsung Galaxy S3.

The phone is also 4G-compatible if you fancy a bit of super-fast data – the only let-down is its uninspiring camera.

HTC One

The ultimate next-gen smartphone
HTC One

 

Now that the Samsung Galaxy S4 is here, the HTC One finally has some stiff competition, but it still holds its head up high. The phone has a gorgeous metal body and high-contrast 4.7in Full HD display, which is perfect for browsing web pages at full zoom.

The phone feels gorgeous in the hand, and the display’s vibrant colours makes using Android 4.1 a pleasure. The HTC One is fast, too, thanks to its quad-core 1.7GHz processor.

Beautiful design aside, the One stands out from other Full HD Android phones such as the Sony Xperia Z due to its far-reaching software modifications. Instead of being full of icons and widgets, by default the homescreen is an information feed, with chunky tiles displaying the latest information from news and social media feeds.

If you’d prefer the standard Android homescreens instead, you can always shuffle around the order so the news feed isn’t the first thing you see. If you like your phones to have a gorgeous design this is the handset to buy, but the Samsung Galaxy S4 has a larger screen and longer battery life, as well as less extensive operating system tweaks.

Samsung Galaxy S3
No longer the best Android smartphone, but still great value
Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE

 

Our Expert Opinion The Samsung Galaxy S3 is no longer the best Android smartphone there is and has been superseded by the S4, but it’s still slim, fast, has a beautiful AMOLED screen and is now available at a very reasonable price.

The phone has just got better, too, thanks to an upgrade to support 4G. On Everything Everywhere’s network we saw speeds up to 25Mbit/s, which is twice as quick as many home broadband connections. However, if you want 4G be sure to get the LTE version of the handset, as there’s still a lot of 3G-only ones on sale and only these are available as part of the cheapest offers

Samsung has loaded the phone with clever features. If you bring the phone to your ear while a contact is on screen it will call that person automatically, if you flip the phone over while it’s ringing it will turn the ringer off, and the Smart Stay feature uses the front camera to keep the screen on while you’re looking at it.

Throw in an excellent camera and you’ve got all the ingredients for a brilliant smartphone, which is now available for a very reasonable price.

Google Nexus 4

Google’s cut-price Android 4.2 wonder
Google Nexus 4

 

Our Expert Opinion The latest Google-branded smartphone is made by LG, and it’s a stormer. The Nexus 4’s quad-core 1.5GHz processor runs Android 4.2 incredibly quickly, and its 4.7in 1,280×768 display has a similar pixel density to the iPhone 5’s Retina screen.

There’s also a high-quality 8-megapixel camera and built-in NFC, so the phone will support Google Wallet’s tap-and-pay service when it arrives in the UK.

The phone is also incredibly good value SIM-free at just £239 – it’s a lot of phone for the money.

Apple iPhone 5

A worthy update to the iPhone
Apple iPhone 5

 

Our Expert Opinion Five generations on, and the iPhone is still the model to beat. Android has taken great strides, but iOS is still the slickest, fastest and easiest to use operating system, and there’s no arguing with the quality of the apps in the Apple App Store.

The iPhone 5 is an evolution of the 4, with a longer screen for more room for app icons and an aspect ratio better suited to widescreen films. It’s also incredibly quick – more than twice as fast as the iPhone 4S in the Sunspider JavaScript benchmark.

The only thing stopping the iPhone 5 from getting an award is Apple’s horrendous new Maps app, which replaces Google Maps, but this should improve with time.

Motorola RAZR i

A gorgeous slimline Intel phone 
Motorola RAZRi

 

Our Expert Opinion The RAZR i has an Intel rather than ARM processor, and it’s seriously quick – around the same speed as the iPhone 5 in the Sunspider JavaScript benchmark. It runs Android 4.1 incredibly smoothly, and the operating system looks great on the phone’s 960×540-pixel Super AMOLED screen.

The RAZR i has a 4.3in screen, which is big considering how compact the phone is. It’s also incredibly slim, and the rubberised back looks great and makes the phone comfortable to hold.

It’s a classy handset all round, and is also remarkably good value on contract.

Nokia Lumia 925

The best Windows Phone 8 handset there is
Nokia Lumia 925

 

Our Expert Opinion The Lumia 925 is an update to the Lumia 920, our previous favourite Windows Phone 8 handset.

It addresses some of the criticisms levelled at the 920, such as its heavy 185g weight. The Lumia 925 cuts that back by 46g, at the same time as shaving 2mm from the phone’s thickness.

Instead of being a solid lump of polycarbonate like the 920, the Lumia 925 is split into a plastic rear and a metal frame; we’re fans of the frame, as we feel it makes the phone comfortable to hold.

The 925 has a 4.5in AMOLED display with a 1,280×768 resolution. It’s not a Full HD screen as found on much of the competition, but it still has an impressive pixel density of 332 pixels per inch, which compares well to the iPhone 5’s 326ppi. Image quality is excellent, too, with deep blacks and beautifully saturated colours.

Like the Lumia 920, the Lumia 925 has a dual-core 1.5GHz processor and 1GB RAM. This is enough to run Windows Phone 8 beautifully, and the 925 comes with some useful preinstalled maps, such as free offline navigation and music. If you’re after a Windows Phone 8 handset, this is the one to have.

Sony Xperia L

A whole lot of Android phone for your money
Sony Xperia L

 

Our Expert Opinion The mid-range Xperia L may be quite expensive on contract, but it’s a steal SIM-free at less than £200.

The phone has a 1GHz dual-core processor and 1GB RAM, and runs Android 4.1 smoothly. Sony’s subtle Android customisations looks great, apps open and shut with a snap and animations are silky smooth.

The Xperia L also has an impressive screen, with bright whites and punchy colours, and we even like its chunky design and pleasing rubberised finish.

Why Are Men So Difficult? The 8 Big Differences Between Men’s and Women’s Brains

Many women find it incredibly difficult to understand men. What you ladies need to understand is that we are totally different, and instead of giving up, all of us should try to embrace the differences and accept each other for who we really are. Only then, we can use all of this knowledge to our advantage. The following article illustrates the differences between the sexes and explains how you can use these differences to your advantage.

Modern science has allowed us to study the male and female brains and come up with conclusions as to why we are so different. This is mainly down to how our brains are structured, and that’s what this article is about. It will not teach you how to make him fall in love with you but it will show you why we are so different and as soon as you understand these differences and accept them as reality, it will become much more easier to relate to men.

Human Relationships: Women communicate much better than men, they focus on how to create a solution that works for the entire group, talking through issues, and utilizes non-verbal cues such as tone, emotion and empathy. Men on the other hand, tend to be more task oriented, less talkative and more isolated. Men have a hard time understanding emotions that are not spoken, while women tend to intuit emotions and emotional cues. These differences clearly explain why men and women sometimes have difficulty in communication and why men-to-men friendships look different from friendships among women.

What does this mean? If you ever had a conversation with a man and got deep into a subject but yet felt like you spoke a completely different language well, this is to blame. In your first steps to understanding men this is the first thing you need to comprehend, MEN ARE DIFFERENT. They are so different in fact that sometimes we can’t even communicate but, if you can try to lower yourself to our level of communication, which means vocalizing the majority of your emotions, you’ll have a much better chance at properly communicating with a man.

Now, I’m not telling you to vocalize absolutely everything that you’re feeling but when a man asks you if something is wrong and you say “Nothing” you need to understand that unless you actually TELL HIM what’s wrong, he won’t have the slightest clue. Sure, you’re best friends get you and maybe even your husband if you’ve been together for years but, the average guy or even your 2 year long boyfriend won’t. Lowering yourself down to our more simple way of communicating will only make life easier for all of us.

Left brain vs both hemispheres: Experts have proven that men process better in the left hemisphere while women tend to process equally well between the two hemispheres. This difference clearly shows why men are stronger with left-brain activities and approach problem solving from a task-oriented perspective while women typically solve problems more creatively and are more aware of feelings while communicating.

What does this mean? This task oriented approach means men think in the following manner when trying to solve a problem:  “In order to solve this problem I will need to get this done first, then this other thing, then this and then they all fit into place and get this done”. Multitasking? There’s no such thing as multitasking when it comes to men…This also explains why men get angry when you are multitasking (e.g talking to them and doing something else) because they simply can’t understand what you’re doing. This is another prime example that will get you closer to accepting just how different men are and proves why men are better in some jobs (programming, business) and women in others (teaching, caretaking).

Mathematical Abilities: An area in the brain called the inferior-parietal lobule (IPL) is typically significantly larger in men, especially on the left side, than in women. This is the section responsible with mathematical ability, and probably explains why men perform higher in mathematical tasks than do women. What’s even more interesting is that this area of the brain that was abnormally large in Einstein. The IPL also processes sensory information, and the larger right side in women allows them to focus on, “specific stimuli, such as baby crying in the night”.

Reaction to stress: In stress situation men have a response reaction that resembles “fight or flight” while women react with a “tend and befriend” strategy. Psychologist Shelly E. Taylor first came up with the phrase “tend an befriend” after noticing that during times of stress women tend to take care of themselves and their children (tending) and form strong group bonds (befriending). The reason behind these different reactions to stress is down to hormones. When someone is under stress the hormone oxytocin is released into the body. In men, testosterone reduces the effects of oxytocin as it is produced in high volumes during stress; this explains the reason for the “fight or flight” response. In women, estrogen amplifies the effects of oxytocin resulting in calming and nurturing feelings.

Language: The two sections in the brain which are responsible for language have been found to be significantly larger in women than in men, indicating one reason why women typically excel in language-based subjects and in language-associated thinking. It’s also important to mention that men typically process language in one hemisphere whilst women process it in both. This differences offers a bit of protection in case of a stroke, as women may be able to recover fully from a stroke affecting the language areas in the brain while men may not have this same advantage.

Emotions: The most obvious difference is probably the emotions. Women have a larger deep limbic system than men, it allows them o be more in touch with their feelings and better able to express themselves, which promotes bonding with others. This is one of the reasons why women serve as caregivers for children. Sadly this comes with a downside as this larger deep limbic system also opens women up to depression, especially during times of hormonal shifts such as after childbirth or during a woman’s menstrual cycle.

What does this mean? Again, as I’ve mentioned above, women are much better at communicating than men so, if you want to be understood by a man you need to lower yourself to his level of communication. Vocalize what you are feeling and he will have a much easier time in understanding you. Don’t give up saying, “ah men don’t understand me”, try to make them understand and you will see that your love life success will greatly improve.

Also, it’s worth mentioning that some men understand these differences themselves and will, in turn, try to take advantage of your emotional brain by making you feel good all of the time. Sure, this may sound great, but in reality many of the men that understand this concept, often use it for their own benefit (I know because I used to do it…). However, it’s also important to note that many of these men live to please and if you can “keep” them you’re on the right track for a lifetime of happiness.

*We’ll look into the types of men and how to keep them, in the newsletter.*

Brain Size: Typically, men’s brains are 11-12% bigger than women’s brains. Sadly, this difference in size has absolutely nothing to do with intelligence, but does explain the difference in size between men and women. Men need a bigger brain to control their bigger bodies and muscles.

Pain: Men and women perceive pain differently. Studies have shown that women need more morphine to reach the same level of pain reduction. They have also shown that woman vocalize their pain and seek treatment much quicker than men. During pain, an area of the brain called the amygdala is activated. Research has shown that in men the right amygdala (controls external functions) is activated and in women the left amygdala (controls internal functions) is activated. This is the reason women seem to perceive pain more intensely than men, although they can withstand higher levels of pain (childbirth).

So what can we draw from this article? Most importantly the fact that men and women are completely different. This is actually funny when you think about it because we can’t live without each other. Couples are essentially a better human being. Because both the male and female perspectives are shared regarding any life situation, life as a couple should be genuinely easier than single life.

What can you do with this sort of information? Men love women that they can connect to, although we may never reach the same level of communication, by vocalizing your emotions more often you’ll have a higher chance of connecting with a man.

Also, by understanding what this article tried to explain (that we are incredibly different) you can change your perception on men and instead getting upset and saying “You don’t understand me!”…you can laugh inside and think to yourself, “Haha, you don’t have the ability to understand me, you primitive creature”.

If you want to get the full scoop behind the male mind and go way beyond what this article is teaching, I urge you to consider having a look at Mike Fiore’s presentation… it will blow you away! Click here to watch the video
