The Salsa is a decent phone, but given that Vodafone will give you a Nexus S for exactly the same money, we're not quite sure why you'd opt for one.
The HTC 8X, also known as the Windows Phone 8X by HTC, features a slick design, 4.3-inch display and a dual-core processor. The Windows Phone 8 software is enjoyable but doesn't seem to offer much over its Android or iOS rivals.
The Touch 3G is a solid performer that will make a great business handset for anyone who doesn't require mechanical input. We, however, would have liked to have seen this smartphone with a keyboard for more accurate messaging.
The HTC Desire C delivers Android Ice Cream Sandwich to the budget end of the smart phone spectrum, but this sugary goodness can't compensate for under-powered hardware. Even at this affordable price, there are more powerful and capable budget blowers up for grabs.
The HTC Desire X is a decent mid-range 'droid for people who want a capable phone that doesn't cost the Earth. With a bright 4-inch screen, Android Ice Cream Sandwich and a dual-core 1GHz chip, it's a wise choice for budget-conscious Android lovers.
It may be underpowered and lack cutting-edge features, but the Gratia's brilliant, customised interface works wonderfully with Android 2.2 to create an appealing, mid-range smart phone that's perfect for casual users.
HTC's S740, while nowhere near as revolutionary as its precursor the S710, is a good update of that original concept. It may not win many new fans for the form factor, but what it sets out to do, it does well
HTC has made another great Windows Mobile smart phone with the HD Mini, the smaller follow-up to the huge HTC HD2. The Mini packs a capacitive touchscreen, heaps of fantastic features and HTC's shiny Sense user interface into a pint-sized handset. But it's slow at times and even Microsoft has pretty much given up on Windows Mobile
The HTC Smart does a good job of hiding the fact that it's a budget phone, thanks to a glossy, simple user interface. We'd like even more social-networking options, but the widgets and Web browser are better than the offerings of many competitors
This is a beautifully designed Windows Mobile smart phone with some rather nifty menus, although they don't work across the entire phone. If you want to receive emails with style then this is worth checking out from HTC or operators such as Orange and T-Mobile. But if you don't like using a stylus then get yourself a phone with a full Qwerty keypad instead
The powerful HTC Tattoo has the edge over other budget handsets. It only falls down because of its unresponsive and small touchscreen, which won't work without some pressure
This is an interesting phone from an established company who usually steers clear of mass market handsets. We liked the slim form factor and ability to synchronise the phone with PCs, but the interface is slow and at times can be very frustrating
The HTC Desire 500 looks cool, has a decent lineup of specs and at only £199 SIM-free, won't force you to empty your bank account to buy it. If you're after a decent all-round phone that stands out from the other budget Android blowers, it's a good choice to go for.
Battery life is the Achilles' heel of the HTC One S, hampering an otherwise sleek and solidly performing smartphone, and making it one for light users only.
The Aria is a good phone, but is expensive compared with other Android smartphones. We love its aesthetic and the quality of its construction, but the lower resolution 3.2-inch screen lacks the punch of HTC's AMOLED models.
Good performance stands out for the P3600i, a PDA-style handset that's too hefty to win any beauty pageants. Great connectivity and a decent camera make this a great option for the traveling business person who wants to travel light.
The Titan 4G lives up to its name in many respects, and offers the same clean, fast Windows Phone experience we've become accustomed to. It's also held back by the same Windows woes.
The Sensation XE delivers as many other HTC handsets have this year, and is made cooler by its Beats Audio colours and the great headphones bundled with the handset.
