The Vivo X21's cool underscreen fingerprint reader offers a glimpse into what a future phone can be, but it's not compelling enough to buy for the tech alone.
For the most part, the X7510 stays close to previous models, but improves on the storage, adds a Windows Mobile 6.1 OS and updates its Qwerty keyboard with a haptic feedback system. The price will certainly be the deciding factor and it's not quite practical enough for all mobile conditions. It does provide a useful alternative to a laptop when working away from the office
The D800 is certainly thin, and it has a rather nice look about it. But it's let down in several ways, most notably by its average camera, lack of memory expansion and, most importantly of all, outer and inner keypads, which leave something to be desired. If you half-fancy this handset, take a look at an earlier model, the D600, which we think is a better bet

Although it bears the same "G2" name as its big brother, the LG G2 Mini is watered down in every respect. Its screen has a disappointingly low resolution, its processor doesn't put up much of a fight and it has an 8- rather than 13-megapixel camera. Unless you crave 4G, the Motorola Moto G is a much better buy as it offers a better screen, the same processor and costs half the price. If however you're after the best mobile tech but in a more pocketable size, Sony's superb Xperia Z1 Compact is where your money should go.
At IFA 2015, Alcatel announced two mid-range handsets, the OneTouch Pop Star and Pop Up, which feature vibrant color options.
Don't expect to see this on shelves outside China any time soon.
