Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
The S6 Edge is every bit the great phone that the S6 is, albeit a futuristic-looking one with curves on both sides. What are they for? Not an awful lot. But they sure look cool.
Apple iPhone 6s
It might look near identical to the iPhone 6, but Apple’s current flagship has a new camera and plenty of canny tricks including the innovative and genuinely useful Force Touch.
Google Nexus 6P
If last year’s Nexus 6 was a little disappointing, the 6P is a proper return to form: 2K screen, superb front camera, bargain price and the super-slick joys of Android Marshmallow.
Another year, another great LG smartphone – only this one’s dressed in leather. Other options are available, but whichever you go for you’ll get a top screen, superb camera and bags of power.
Motorola Moto X Style
Moto’s truly playing with the big boys these days. The Style’s pixel-crammed 2K display, 21MP camera and premium build mark it out as a genuine alternative to the various iPhones and Galaxys.
With its big battery, classy build and huge power, the OnePlus 2 would be a contender on specs alone – but throw in its sub-£300 price and you have an astonishingly good smartphone.
Samsung Galaxy S6
No longer the plastic-clad butt of Apple fans’ jokes, the Galaxy S6 looks and feels like what it is: a classy, high-end smartphone with a brilliant camera and barely a flaw to be seen.
Vodafone Smart Prime 6
Cheap as chips and twice as tasty, the Vodafone Smart Prime 6 is a phone you’d be happy with at double the price. Triple even. What glorious times we live in
