Where to start with the Galaxy S4 when there's so much to talk about? Well, the one thing that gets mentioned time after time is the 5 inch, high definition screen, with its noticeably bright colours, sharpness and depth.
Couple this with superior processing power and loads of memory, and what you essentially have is a portable entertainment machine. If playing games or watching video clips on your phone is your thing, the S4 is great for this.
We should mention the camera too. It's the got the most megapixels of any phone in our range with a 13MP main camera. The selfie camera is a bit lower quality at 2MP but that's more than adequate for your standard social media activity.
A common criticism of Samsung is the tendency to build phones of plastic instead of metal, and this is true of the S4. But the shape is appealing and ergonomic and overall it feels like good quality in the hand.
It's just that Samsung have paid a little more attention to the insides than the outside, and in our view that's no bad thing.
Our view: Tough to beat, especially at this price. A true flagship smartphone
