Sony Xperia S
Until you can use NFC to buy your weekly shopping or a house, rather than just a packet of crisps and a Mars bar at the local newsagent, you’re going to have to find something else to do with that chip. Handily, Sony’s dual-core, 12MP, 720p-screened Xperia S comes with four customisable SmartTags. Stick one in your car to trigger connection to your handsfree kit, another to set your alarm when you tap it against your bedside table and another on your desk at work to remind you to buy a packet of crisps and a Mars bar on the way home.
Quick specs Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), 4.3in, 12MP
