The smartphone market is reaching the end of another busy year full of innovation and excitement, so it's no surprise V3’s head-to-head review of two top contenders proved so popular.
The iPhone 5S and Nexus 5 battled it out, and although the Nexus put up a good fight it couldn't quite match the all-round brilliance of the iPhone 5S.
However, despite Apple’s work on the iPhone 5S, it was still bested by Nokia in our countdown of the 10 best phones of the past year, with the Lumia 1020 taking the coveted crown thanks to its amazing 41MP camera.
Smartphone vendors can't rest on their laurels for 2014, though, with a new entrant in the form of Jolla Mobile entering the fray, and with the launch of their device the second most popular story of the past week, it clearly has interest already.
Elsewhere, security hit the headlines in a big way with the Bank of England revealing that several banks have been hit by cyber attacks over the past six months, while a new XP vulnerability underlined the growing pressure on firms to move from the ageing platform.
Finally, Microsoft hinted at the demise of its watered-down Windows RT platform, as the firm admits having three operating systems is a tad confusing and that users are still unclear of the differences in the platforms.
