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.

Click through on each phone below to read our comprehensive review or preview of these full HD smartphones.

HTC One

The HTC One is one of the best designed phones we've ever used. It has an outstanding display and offers fast and smooth performance. However, its battery life is below average, its new camera technology isn't a revolution and the tile-based 'BlinkFeed' home screen won't suit all users.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
