The Blackphone 2 delivers the most secure consumer smartphone for the privacy-minded, but it will have an uphill battle against more established players for government and corporate markets.
Distancing itself from the terrible Rokr E1, the V3i is a good-looking phone with very usable music software. Sadly, the 100-song cap has prevented it from being a great mobile phone/MP3 player solution. We're also disappointed that the only external changes from the V3i are the burgundy casing and dedicated iTunes key
While the Xperia Arc S doesn't qualify as a massive improvement over its direct predecessor, the Arc, it is nonetheless a solid choice. Its eye-catching design is backed up by a great screen and a surprisingly powerful 8.1-megapixel digital camera.
Although the Vodafone Smart 4 Turbo provides 4G on the cheap, the big red network has made too many sacrifices elsewhere on the phone. Even at this low price, your money can be better spent elsewhere.
The Huawei P20 cuts some luxuries, but delivers similarly spectacular low-light photos of the Pro model.
Samsung's made the right sacrifices to keep the cost of the Galaxy Ace down. It has a relatively low-res screen and lacks the power to play Flash video, but this Android phone is packed with fun features and looks much more expensive than it is.
The W200i has a decent range of features and is easy to use, however it's the excellent Walkman music player that helps it stand out from its rivals. Those who are not on a monthly contract and are looking for a music phone should check it out
The CAT B15 is water, dust and shock proof, but unlike some tough phones it boasts a 4-inch touchscreen and Android Jelly Bean software. It's strong enough to put up with a tough life on a building site, while letting you enjoy apps and games from the Google Play store when you've finished constructing things.
Samsung's latest low-cost mobile, the E2121, takes the same stance as its cheap predecessors and adds some impressive functionality, offering budget buyers music playback, expandable storage and limited photographic opportunities.
For a relatively small and lightweight 3G phone the Sony Ericsson K800i is positively dripping with features and the headline 3.2-megapixel camera isn't the only good thing about it. We aren't big fans of Sony's new tiny Memory Stick Micro, but if nothing else the K800i stylishly shows that 3G handsets have at last made it mainstream
We wanted to love the LG KC780 but it simply didn't deliver the experience we expected. Considering its size, LG could have packed in plenty of features. If the point was to create an inexpensive camera phone, then the camera has to perform a lot better. This phone simply lacks pizzazz, although we're sure LG will come up with the goods this year
The fourth Galaxy Ace packs a 5-megapixel camera and Android 4.4 KitKat. Read on for all the facts.
Though it feels too similar to last year's G3, the LG G4 is an excellent big-screen smartphone that will appeal to budding photographers, and has old-school features missing from rival flagships.
The M4 Aqua starts well with its luscious looks and affordable price, but the abysmal camera and storage woes quickly take the shine off an otherwise decent handset.
Although the YotaPhone 2's e-ink display is wonderfully novel, and can result in much better battery life, the phone needs to be considerably cheaper if it's going to be a sensible purchase over other Android phones.
Though it looks like the iPhone 6, the ZTE Blade S6 feels like a cheap Android phone. However, its low price and some useful features makes this a viable choice for those on a budget.
The Doro PhoneEasy 410gsm is a great basic mobile for the elderly and those who are less tech-inclined. But if you think this is as good as it gets, think again -- the Doro PhoneEasy 409gsm is simpler still.
The Nokia C5 offers a good deal of functionality at a reasonable price. While some other devices may look better on paper, the C5's large buttons and simple interface mean that using this phone is a very pleasant experience indeed
