HTC One dethrones Sony Xperia Z to become Stuff’s number one smartphone

The HTC One has burst onto the scene with all guns blazing to reach number one. But can it fend off the Samsung Galaxy S4?

The Sony Xperia Z barely created a dent in Stuff’s luxuriously cushioned smartphone throne before the HTC One came along and graced our hands with its gorgeous machined aluminium curves.

Earning a well-deserved five stars in our full review, the HTC One’s razor-sharp full HD screen, innovative 4MP UltraPixel camera and improved Sense 5 experience has allowed it to grab the coveted number one spot in Stuff’s Top Ten smartphone list.

The One XL has been booted off the list completely to make way for its shinier, better looking sucessor, leaving the Galaxy S3 and Google Nexus 4 in third and fourth place. The iPhone 5 is now resting at the halfway point, but we expect that all to change when Apple releases the iPhone 5S (or 6) later on this year.

With the Samsung Galaxy S4 due to enter the spotlight tomorrow though, the HTC One’s reign could be just as short as it’s Xperia predecessor’s. One thing’s for certain though – it’s never been a better time to be an Android fan.
