Apple iPhone 4S
The iPhone 4S is a touchscreen slate smartphone developed by Apple Inc. It is the fifth generation of the iPhone, a device that combines the 3.5-inch iPod Touch with mobile phone capability. It retains the exterior design of its predecessor, the iPhone 4, but is host to a range of improved hardware specifications and software updates. Now you can use your voice to use your iPhone. Just talk to Siri as you would to a person: "Do I need an umbrella?" or "Any great burgers around here?" or "Where's the closest ATM?" Siri not only understands what you say, it knows what you mean. It figures out the right apps to use to find the right answer. Then, just like a personal assistant, it answers you. Siri makes phone calls, sends messages, schedules meetings, sets reminders, and more. How much more? Just ask, and Siri tells you that, too. 8 mega pixel camera. Not to mention an improved backside illumination sensor, excellent auto white balance, advanced color accuracy, face detection, and reduced motion blur. It all means that no matter how many people, how much light, and how much action you capture, everything looks exactly as it should. And just wait until you see the photos.

HTC Sensation XE
If you are looking for a phone that would make your heart melt than HTC Sensation XE is the phone that will be able to do that. I discovered this phone thanks to a friend of mine who showed it to me at an HTC store. The first time I set my eyes on it, I immediately had a crush on it. But the moment I held it in my hand and touched it, then tried out the Beats headphones that came with it, I fell in love. The LCD display is vibrant and the colors pop out. No delay on the response whatsoever. Uses gorilla glass, so it won't scratch if you drop it. The body is tight and swag. Its metallic finish is engineered to perfection. Quite sturdy and looks like a sports car type phone. It has dual core, 1.5Ghz processor, but the battery life is splendid. Would last you a good 12-15 hours under normal operations (data or wi-fi included). Video playback is excellent. It's like carrying a high definition TV in your pocket. Even the sound of the video playback is supported by Beats. Photo shots blew me away. It's the first time for me to take photos and not have to enhance or edit them. The photos that came out make my photos look like they're professionally taken.

The look, the sound, the feel... it's a phone that impresses the senses. The HTC Incredible S brings everything you view to life on a stunning 4" Super LCD screen. So you can browse the web in style, admire your photo gallery, or lose yourself in a video viewing experience. And when you really want to immerse yourself in a movie, plug in your headset and enjoy virtual surround sound via SRS WOW HDTM. This Smartphone is an experience designed around many little insightful ideas. Ideas that seem so simple, you think "why hasn't any one else thought of that? It just makes sense." It's a phone experience full of lots of little surprises, delighting you every time.

Multitasking in Gingerbread allows you the ability to run more than one app at a time. If you're playing a game, you can easily switch to an incoming email and then switch back to the game without losing your place.
HTC Sensation XL
When it comes to doing music justice, you're way ahead of the crowd with the HTC Sensation XL with Beats AudioTM and its superb, in-box customized Beats headset.
