Xiaomi Mi Note

The Mi Note showcases Xiaomi's top-class potential to the world -- it's just a shame so few outside Asia will get to see it.

Oppo R5 (gold)
REVIEW

Oppo R5 ( gold)

Oppo has created a beautiful phone that shows plenty of promise, but it needs to iron out the kinks in its performance if it's to stand out against the cheaper competition.

ZTE Grand X
REVIEW

ZTE Grand X

The ZTE Grand X will satisfy your basic smartphone needs, but the carrier has better prepaid handsets at the same price, if not cheaper.

BlackBerry Classic
REVIEW

BlackBerry Classic

If you're willing to trade screen size for a superior physical keyboard, the BlackBerry Classic is a fantastic productivity phone for old-school QWERTY junkies.

Kyocera DuraForce
REVIEW

Kyocera DuraForce

Get the Kyocera DuraForce if a rugged handset is a priority; otherwise, AT&T has other handsets in the same price range with better cameras and faster internal speeds.

Microsoft Lumia 535 (white)
REVIEW

Microsoft Lumia 535 ( white)

The Lumia 535's cheap price, big screen and colourful body earn it plenty of points, but its lack of 4G LTE, unimpressive display and sometimes sluggish interface mean this phone isn't suitable for anything more than the basics.

Posh Orion Pro X500 (white)
REVIEW

Posh Orion Pro X500 ( white)

The Orion Pro's disappointing features completely overshadow its low price and dual-SIM setup.

YotaPhone 2
REVIEW

YotaPhone 2

Although the YotaPhone 2's e-ink display is wonderfully novel, and can result in much better battery life, the phone needs to be considerably cheaper if it's going to be a sensible purchase over other Android phones.

HTC Desire 510 (white)
REVIEW

HTC Desire 510 ( white)

The HTC Desire 510 doesn't have the specs to excite committed tech fans, but it handles the basics well, has 4G LTE for superfast data speeds, and it doesn't cost the earth.

Sonim XP7
REVIEW

Sonim XP7

The Sonim XP7 stands up to the elements without sacrificing performance, but you'll need to decide if its durability is worth its premium price.

CAT B15Q (black)
REVIEW

CAT B15Q ( black)

The Cat B15Q is a thoroughly rugged phone, but archaic connectivity options and a disappointing display keep it from shining outdoors.

Motorola Droid Turbo (64GB, black ballistic nylon)
REVIEW

Motorola Droid Turbo ( 64GB, black ballistic nylon)

Even with its hefty design, the Motorola Droid Turbo's robust battery, powerful processor and vivid display put it on the short list for Verizon customers.

Nokia Lumia 735 (green)
REVIEW

Nokia Lumia 735 ( green)

Although the Lumia 735 doesn't have the best camera, it's colourful, curvy and comfortable, has a good display and an affordable price -- all of which go a long way to making up for it.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge (frost white)
REVIEW

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge ( frost white)

Samsung's swooshing Galaxy Note Edge is a triumph of novel design, but its high price tag and minimal extra usability make for a niche appeal.

Google Nexus 6 (32GB)
REVIEW

Google Nexus 6 ( 32GB)

Although the Nexus 6 trails the slimmer Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in processor performance and native productivity features, it's still the most powerful pure Android handset available and the largest Nexus yet.

REVIEW

Huawei Ascend Y550 ( white)

Even with its affordable price, the Huawei Ascend Y550 offers little to get excited about. If you're after a budget Android phone, you'd be wise to look elsewhere.

HTC Desire Eye
REVIEW

HTC Desire Eye

Although its flash-equipped front camera is eye-catching, its image results aren't as impressive as I'd hoped. Still, the flash will illuminate your face where other phones can't, and the Desire Eye comes with fun software, is well-specced and waterproof too.

Sony Xperia Z3v (white)
REVIEW

Sony Xperia Z3v ( white)

Sony's variant on the Xperia Z3 is nearly the same excellent overall phone on Verizon, albeit with a slightly dated external design.

Huawei Honor 6 (white)
REVIEW

Huawei Honor 6 ( white)

Its software might not be perfect, but the Honor 6 packs an impressive lineup of specs for a brilliant price. If you want the crisp screen and fast speeds of the top-end phones but don't fancy the price tag, the Honor 6 is a great phone to go for.

LG G3 Vigor (burgundy red)
REVIEW

LG G3 Vigor ( burgundy red)

The LG Vigor has much of the same style and features of the G3, but at a fraction of the price.

Posh Memo S580 (black)
REVIEW

Posh Memo S580 ( black)

Lackluster performance and a poor display make the dual-SIM Posh Mobile Memo not even worth its budget price.

Sharp Aquos Crystal (white)
REVIEW

Sharp Aquos Crystal ( white)

Don't fret about the unremarkable features -- the Sharp Aquos Crystal is a great buy with a compelling edgeless display that renders it unlike any phone currently on the market.

REVIEW

LG Tribute

With alluring style and specs, LG's Tribute is one of the best budget phones you can find on Virgin Mobile.

LG G3 S (metallic black)
REVIEW

LG G3 S ( metallic black)

The LG G3 S may come with the same name and physical design as its flagship brother, but the similarities are only skin deep. The G3 S's specs have been watered down in every way, making this little more than a low-end phone in a high-end body with a mid-range price.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (charcoal black)
REVIEW

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 ( charcoal black)

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will thrill anyone who loves a fast phone with a large screen, but it's best for compulsive scribblers willing to pay a lot for its winning stylus.

REVIEW

Nokia Lumia 530 ( dark grey)

Since specs are decidedly basic, its low price is the major reason to seek out the Nokia Lumia 530.

Huawei Ascend Mate 7

Huawei Ascend Mate 7

Although it's let down by its awkward software, the excellent battery life and big, bright screen help make the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 a decent choice for those of you looking for movies and games on the go.

LG Realm
REVIEW

LG Realm

The 3G-only LG Realm isn't a terrible phone, but $20 more gets you the Motorola Moto G's heartier hardware and better design.
