10. HTC Windows Phone 8X

HTC teamed up with Microsoft this year to deliver its Windows Phone 8X, a uniquely designed and (optionally) colorful smartphone running Microsoft's latest mobile OS.

The new Windows Phone 8X has a 4.3-inch screen and a sleek, uni-body design that HTC says feels "magically thin" in your hand. Microsoft's tiled interface pops in the phone's bright frame, which is available in a variety of eye-catching colors, including bright blue, red and yellow.

But, don't be fooled by its daring design. The Windows Phone 8X packs some serious specs, ranging from its 1.5GHz Qualcomm processor to its 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera.
