HTC One confirmed as world's best phone

But for how long?

News that will likely rock the mobile phone world: the HTC One has knocked the Samsung Galaxy S3 off top spot in our 20 best mobiles phones in the world today showdown.

Samsung has enjoyed two years at the top of the TechRadar standings, with the Galaxy S2 setting the bar, followed 12 months later by the excellent Galaxy S3.

Apple has always pushed Samsung hard with the iPhone 4, 4S and more recently the iPhone 5, but 2013 has seen Sony and HTC step up to the plate to really challenge for the best smartphone title.

Check out our hands-on review below:

iPhone takes a(nother) tumble

After being unceremoniously thrown to the floor of a Finnish TV studio, the iPhone 5 has taken another tumble, this time down our rankings to fourth.

The impressive Sony Xperia Z nestles in at three, just below the S3 which manages to grasp second place thanks to its excellent feature set and lower price.

Windows Phone 8 and BlackBerry 10 are also represented with the BlackBerry Z10 sneaking into tenth, while the Nokia Lumia 920 manages to barge its way to eighth.

Our top 20 always produces a generous amount of debate, as fans sing the praises of their favourites while highlighting the flaws of the competition - and remember we're still waiting to put the Galaxy S4 through its paces before seeing where it will lie.
