Nokia Lumia 1020

The Nokia Lumia 1020 ($300) changes everything we know about photography on a mobile device — and will likely become the new benchmark for smartphone cameras. It boasts a 41 megapixel camera (no that wasn't a typo), with optical image stabilization, a xenon flash, and Nokia Pro Camera software for expert image editing. That huge sensor captures images at 7712 x 5360 resolution, so no matter how far you are from your subject, you'll be able to crop and zoom to create an image like you were right there. And, because it's powered by Windows Phone 8, you'll be able to share those gorgeous shots with all your friends.

  • 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.

  • Nokia Lumia 925

    If you liked the features of the Lumia 920 but simply couldn't get behind the colorful, oversized polycarbonate body, you're likely love the Nokia Lumia 925 ($TBA). Like the 920, it offers an 8.7 megapixel PureView camera with optical image stabilization, a 1.5 GHZ dual-core Snapdragon processor with 1GB of RAM, a 4.5" WXGA screen, and 1.2 megapixel front-facing camera. But instead of polycarbonate, the 925's outer frame is made from metal, with the plastic stuff relegated to a white, black, or grey panel on the back, a feature that makes possible the optional wireless charging cover. Arriving next month.
