The best smartphones with a full HD screen

2013 has become the year of the full HD smartphone. Whereas most of last years flagship devices paraded screens with a 720p resolution, the top line models in 2013 all feature a full HD, 1080p display.

The resolution of these screens is 1920x1080, which in most cases results in a pixel density of well over 400ppi. The end result should mean screens that make it impossible to distinguish individual pixels on the display without using a magnifying glass.

We round-up the best smartphones with full HD screens, including flagship models like the Samsung Galaxy S4, the HTC One and the Sony Xperia Z.

Samsung Galaxy S4

The Samsung Galaxy S4 looks almost identical to its predecessor but includes a better display, an improved camera and a huge amount of software features and functions, many of which are gimmicks. This is an excellent and overall outstanding smartphone, but there are a few annoyances.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
