Reasons for voting the way I did


Apple's iPhone 5s looks similar to 2012's iPhone 5, but the new iOS handset features a few upgrades that are worth taking note of, like a speedier A7 processor and Touch ID fingerprint scanner. Apple also included an improved camera in the iPhone 5s that, while still an 8-megapixel shooter, offers better low-light performance than the shooter... - read on...

HTC knocked it out the park last year with the original HTC One, and this year's model is even better.

Apple's iPhone 5s is still at the top. Its lightweight design, beautiful display, and access to iTunes and the App Store make it second to none. HTC's One M8 is a close second, though, with its industrial design, big display, and features like BoomSound and the new Duo Camera feature. Samsung's Galaxy Note 3 improves everything about the Note... - read on...
