LG Optimus 4X HD

LG's Tegra 3-based beast, the Optimus 4X HD, sports a 4.7in display with a 720p resolution. Pre-orders are now being taken and while an official roll out date has yet to be established, reports suggest the phone will be out sometime this June.

Motorola Razr Maxx

The Motorola Razr Maxx may only appear with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and 1GB of Ram, but with a 17.6 hour rated battery life, you'll have ample time to complain to your mates about the wait for an ICS update. Plus, with a Kevlar build and a 4.3in display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, the 9mm-thick device is quite the brawny blower. Tough choice.

Nokia Lumia 900

Nokia's third WinPho 7 is unlikely to set the world on fire, but should keep things ticking over sweetly until Windows 8-based handsets rock up later this year. So for those already converted to Microsoft's tile-design, the Nokia Lumia 900 could be the best on offer, for the time being at least.

Sony Xperia S

Sony has been focused on its solo venture into the smartphone domain lately, with its NXT series of blowers, fronted by the Xperia S, which features a beastly 12Mp camera and 4.3in 720p display. You can read a full review of the Xperia S here on Reg Hardware.

While none of the NXT series yet boast a Tegra 3 processor, a Sony 2012 roadmap, shows the company does have plans to incorporate quad-core innards into an unannounced handset this October. More on that, as and when, though.

ZTE Era

Chinese manufacturer ZTE says its first Tegra 3 handset, the Era, is the thinnest quad-core device on the market today, measuring just 7.8mm thick. The Android 4.0 blower wont hit shelves until the second half of the year, but could definitely be one to keep track of.
