The winner is Xperia Z1.
-It has the best looking handset
-Best Camera department
-Best build premium quality
-Dust n water resistant
-Best UI; looks elegant and clear, not cartoonish UI

3 GB RAM is not realy different in daily usage over 2 GB

but here no doubt samsung note 3 have a edge in ram and processor because xperia z1 announced and lunched much time before. but you all should remeber that xperia z1 defeated by note 3 not by a high score.and this very bad news for samsung and its fan that note 3 have a higher processor and 1 gb higher ram and cheater in benchmarks

same on samsung

sony is best in almost all aspects. samsung and lg both uses higher cpu then xperia but sony xperia z1 is easily take 2nd place in this test but all samy fans remember samsung caught for cheating, secondly in software customized department every fan have different choice, i love sony interface. thirdly in camera deppt, both samsung and LG cant defeat sony's 20 mp in any sense here only difference is that gsm arena pick z1 unit that have demo softwre and they mention it....

As i read the winner... the truly winner is the samsung galaxy note, better camera, more ram, running android 4.3 it has poor video taking but for me is excellent

AnonD-70081, 18 Oct 2013I think all three are so good that I'm so confused now, lov... morethen get IP5s ... it's handy and beautiful phone

  • AnonD-70081

I think all three are so good that I'm so confused now, love the screen/size of the LG G2, love the screen and S pen and battery of the note 3, love the build of the Z1 is superb, hate the curved glossy plastic looks of the G2, hate the oversize and cheap plastic looks of note 3, hate battery life and bezels of the Z1, maybe in 2014 there would be one with the xperia looks, the note battery life, the G2 bezels, we are closer to that, last if I have to pick up one of these I would be needing a coin to throw twice.

Loved reading this.:)
There's just that something about GSMArena's reviews that make it the most popular site about pocketables on the planet

Beauty of Android is the great selection of top notch devices. I own the Note 3 but would've been happy with any of the devices. Unfortunately, Note 3 is flawed with multi-touch issues:


Hope Samsung can fix it via firmware otherwise I'll have to return it considering Note 2 didn't have this issue.

Oooo stop sony' lovers u cant see its place 3 in every aspect?!!
its clear z1 is behind 2others,.

Sony's cheap ui and weaker battery everytime.

i easily take htc one for king 2013 if we account date of introduced.

  • AnonD-115286

Generally, an overall fair and professional review + comparison. But I have some suggestions for GSMarena team:

1)Please include charging-time from 0% to 100% in your battery test in future

2)Please review phone's temperature under 3 conditions - idle, heavy gaming for 30+mins and charging for 15+mins in future

3)Please make a further review on any water-resistance phone of their capabilities in taking shot and video underwater in future

Thanks and Regards

Yes dispute its average video and low light. The LG G2 is the best android of 2013. And it wins again. Well done LG.
