As the week's pass, the HTC One keeps picking up steam and continues to be the top smartphone on both sides of the Official Smartphone Rankings.  Not all of our experts select it as their #1, but it still earns enough points to find it's way to the top.  Find out below how Evan Selleck ranked his top five and why in this week's Expert Spotlight.

The iPhone 5 still holds the top spot, with its industrial design, beautiful 4-inch display, and the marriage between hardware and software. Add that with the iTunes Store and App Store, and the iPhone is the perfect device for someone who wants a wealth of software applications.

HTC's One is a close second. The hardware is easily the best Android device currently available. The slight tweaks that HTC has made to the Sense user interface are welcomed, even if they do have a few quirks. The hardware more than makes up for it.

The iPhone 4S is still the best bet for someone who wants access to Apple's iOS, but does not want to make the switch to the larger display.

Samsung's Galaxy Note II is the perfect device for anyone who needs a nice combination of work and play, with its 5.5-inch display and the S Pen functionality included out of the box.

The Google Nexus 4 from LG is the best bet for anyone who wants stock Android, and doesn't want to pay a ridiculous amount through a carrier to get a phone sans contract.
