Looking for phones? CNET's reviews of the best phones include photos, video, and user reviews.
With its powerful processor, great camera, decent screen and gorgeous, waterproof design, the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is the best small Android phone around.
Pricing not available
The Xperia Z1S is the most impressive smartphone Sony has ever sold on any carrier, but an inferior screen makes Samsung's Galaxy handsets better deals.
Sony's flagship Xperia Z1 packs a Full HD display, a quad-core processor, and a whopping 20.7-megapixel camera into a waterproof body and wraps it in an aluminium frame.
Equipped with the latest X-Trans sensor, the XQ1 is priced for folks who want better-than-snapshot photo quality but won't miss a viewfinder.
With its swiveling camera mount and high tech specs, the Oppo N1 is easily today's most innovative smartphone that most people haven't heard of.
As with the original flagship, Samsung is counting on the midrange phone's fingerprint scanner, heart-rate monitor, and extra apps to stand out.
At CES in Las Vegas, Sony's Kunimasa Suzuki shows off the company's latest Xperia smartphone, which features a new 20.7MP camera
The 2014 Volkswagen Passat competes well in its segment for driving character and fuel economy, and checks off the right boxes for cabin tech, but falls short on driver-assistance features.
With a large sensor and high-quality lens, the RX10 promises great photo quality. But its feature set may not match what many folks are looking for.
Among several other enhancements, this successor to the 645D is the first in the category to capture video as well as 51-megapixel stills.
