Find the perfect phone for you with our amazing buying guide

Across six wicked pages, our mobile phone buying guide gives you all the information you need to choose the best phone for you.

Hi there! Happy Friday to you. If you're thinking about popping to your local phone shop this weekend for a gander at the latest in mobile Internet-connected telephony, may I recommend taking a peek at our all-new phone buying guide? I may? So kind!

The guide starts with a simple question: what do you want most out of a phone? Do you want to take great looking photos and share them with the rest of the world? Do you want to play games on the bus? How about getting some work done on your commute?

Across six prettily illustrated pages, our guide gives you all the information you need to answer these tricky quesions and more. We'll give you the pros and cons of getting a 4G phone, what the different app stores have to offer, what makes a gaming phone tick and explain what on Earth Spotify is.

Each page has a handy wishlist of the most important features to look for in that category, plus a useful video review of a relevant phone so you can see what we're talking about.

We also recommend four of the best phones, at various prices, that do that thing particularly well, whether it's taking photos, playing music, or conducting your serious business. Those link out to our superb, in-depth reviews so you can learn everything you could want about a mobile before you plunk down your cash.
