Best Smartphone: Sony Xperia Z
Sony made a big statement at CES with a flagship phone that delivers all of the best technologies the company has to offer--plus a very pleasant surprise. The Xperia Z sports a 5-inch 1080p display powered by Sony’s Bravia Engine 2 (for lifelike colors) and a 13-megapixel camera with Sony’s Exmor RS sensor that captures HDR video (for evenly lit footage).

The real kicker is that the Xperia Z can withstand being dunked in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes and even stream your favorite tunes to a nearby Bluetooth speaker while submerged. Add in a quad-core processor, a new stamina mode for improved standby time and easy one-touch sharing with NFC devices, and you have a winner.
