Best Smartphone 2013: Google Nexus 4

Has there ever been a better year for smartphones? And yet even among the cream of the crop the Nexus 4 rises to the top. As long as the storage capacity will suffice, the Nexus 4 is the definition of a bargain. You quite simply get the performance and features of a high-end smartphone for half the price you would expect to pay. Unless you're set on an iPhone, the Nexus 4 is an unbeatable deal – like its the big brother, the Nexus 7, it's a genuine game-changer, bringing high-end quality to bargain hunters.
