Has Sony finally created a smartphone that can compete with the big boys? We think so. The Xperia Z, with its five-inch 1080p display, is one of the best Android phones we've come across. Waterproof and dustproof, it's made from high-quality materials (glass adorns its back), and it's fast as hell thanks to the 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor and 2GB of RAM. There's no word on when it's dropping or how much it'll cost, but this is already a candidate for smartphone of the year.
