It has an exceptional design, a 4.3 inch display, Carl Zeiss lenses ( 8 MP photo / video camera resolution ), as well as personalized applications like Nokia Drive.
This smartphone has all the ingredients of becoming a hit on the smartphones market.
10. iPhone 5
There are so many rumors on the internet about the new iPhone 5 from Apple that you seriously do not know what to believe.
According to some of these rumors, iPhone 5 will be released somewhere in the middle of 2012 and it will benefit from 4G LTE support, a faster processor and a bigger screen.
Considering that the iPad 3 was actually “the new iPad”, we might guess that the next iPhone might come under the name of “the new iPhone”.
