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.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha (frosted gold)
REVIEW

Samsung Galaxy Alpha ( frosted gold)

If you love the high-end tech Samsung crams into its phones but hate the plastic bodies, the Galaxy Alpha may well be the phone for you. Its processor and camera perform brilliantly, while its compact 4.7-inch size makes it very comfortable to hold and use in one hand. Its low-resolution display is a big letdown, though, especially when you consider the high price of the phone, which does take the shine off an otherwise brilliant phone.

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 S5 Mini (black)
REVIEW

Samsung GALAXY S5 Mini ( black)

If you've been hoping for a fully-fledged flagship phone with all the bells and whistles of the the other elite mobiles just in a more compact size, prepare to be disappointed. The Galaxy S5 Mini matches the regular S5 in name and looks, but not in specs. If you're after a comfortable to use phone with the Samsung name and enough power for everyday use, it'll suit well. For a true compact flagship, look towards Sony's Xperia Z3 Compact.
