HTC One Mini

Somewhere along the way the lines between a phone and a tablet became blurry, and our smartphones turned into hulking masses of silicon that barely fit in our pocket. The Android-powered HTC One Mini ($TBA) — at about five by two and a half inches, and just a third of an inch thick — aims to curb that trend. Made from polished metal alloy, the body of the phone fits comfortably into your hand. Dual front speakers, a 720p HD 4.3-inch screen, 16 gigs of storage, and a 1 gig processor make it great for entertainment and gaming.

  • Sony Xperia Z Ultra

    If there's one thing Sony is known best for, it's making gorgeous displays, and at 6.4-inches the Sony Xperia Z Ultra ($TBA) has the largest and slimmest full HD display of any smartphone. In case your phones always seem to find their way into a body of water (or a beverage), it's also waterproof — so there's no need to junk it up with a bulky case. This Android smartphone comes with a 2.2 GHz quad-core processor, and 4GLTE, so it's ready to handle just about any gaming, professional, or video application.

  • Fairphone

    Basically everyone has a smartphone these days — but have you ever given a thought to what's inside? No, we're not talking processors and megapixels, but instead the conflict elements required to make the components, and the cheap labor used to put them together. Well, the folks behind Fairphone (€325; roughly $435) have. This Android device aims to be the first phone built with a completely transparent supply chain, letting you know the source of each mineral used to make each component, the people who built them, and the social and ecological impact. Yet the phone itself is no slouch, sporting Android 4.2, a quad-core processor, an eight megapixel rear cam, and a 1.3 megapixel front-facing shooter. It even has dual-SIM trays to make travel easier — which is great, considering you can only buy it in Europe for the time being.
