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.

Sony Xperia Z2 (white)
REVIEW

Sony Xperia Z2 ( white)

Sure, it costs a bundle, but the Sony Xperia Z2 is everything you should expect from a top-end phone. Its impressive performance rivals the Samsung Galaxy S5 for smartphone top dog, but the Z2's slick glass and metal design trumps the S5's plastic body. If you're looking for both style and substance from a phone, you've come to the right place.

REVIEW

Nokia Lumia Icon ( Verizon Wireless)

Buy the Nokia Lumia Icon for its beautiful display and well-rounded features, but skip it if you require gobs of storage, are on a budget, or prefer a power user's OS.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini
REVIEW

Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini

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.

Amazon Fire Phone ( 32GB)

Despite its daring aspirations and 3D-like party tricks, the brave, new Fire Phone's lack of Google services will alienate anyone who expects the flexibility of a modern Android phone.

Alcatel OneTouch Fierce 2

If price is your guide, Alcatel's OneTouch Fierce 2 is one of your lowest-cost choices. Otherwise, opt for a Motorola Moto G or Samsung Galaxy Avant instead.

Nokia Lumia 925

Nokia's lovely Lumia 925 delivers a high-end Windows Phone experience, but camera snobs with deep pockets should hold out for AT&T's Lumia 1020.

Nokia Lumia 630
REVIEW

Nokia Lumia 630

The Nokia Lumia 630 is a cheap, vibrant alternative to Android and its Windows Phone 8.1 software is easy to use. The app store is still a problem though -- if you like getting new releases when your Android and iOS-toting friends do, a budget Android phone like the Moto G is still the way to go.
