Sony's comeback phone is a top device - it's got a gorgeous, HD screen and a waterproof design that makes a real, minimalist statement. It is big, with a 5" screen, and it feels big in the hand, thanks to the square corners, but it is also positioned to capitalise on its size: that screen really comes into its own playing films.

Samsung Galaxy S3
The Galaxy S3 is the dominant Android phone on the market - that's thanks to its excellent performance, a design that while plastic still feels premium, and clever features such as Smart Stay, that keep the screen on if you're looking at it by tracking your eyes, Smart Call that calls contacts if you're looking at their details. and lift the phone to your face. There's also the computer-type possibility to split the screen between two apps. Samsung's track record of innovation is remarkable within the Android arena, and add to this the fact that it's the only Android device with a real ecosystem of accessories, including bespoke charging packs to supplement the already decent battery. It's a device that really offers additions to the bare Google OS.

Google LG Nexus 4
LG's Nexus device is a pure Google experience, with no embellishments but those made by Google themselves. Consumers would be right in thinking it's an excellent device, and running the latest Android OS it also features updates direct from Google and features that haven't made it to many other handsets yet.

The latest phone from struggling giant HTC is in a sense a return to form - the new camera is dubbed ultrapixel because of its remarkable low-light performance, and called Zoe after the zoetrope. There's also a new interface that adds to Android.

Processor: 1.7GHz quadcore; Storage: 16/32GB; Camera: 4MP Ultrapixel, 2688x1520; Size: 137x68x9.3mm, 143g
Apple's iPhone 5 is by far the best iPhone the company has ever made and as a piece of design it is a perfect combination of form and function. Users of the iPhone tend to use significantly more data than others, thanks to downloading apps and surfing the web.
SPECS: Screen: 4", 1280x720;
Processor: A6; Storage: 16/32/64GB;
Camera: 8MP, 1080p;
Size: 124x59x7.6mm, 112g
Galaxy Note 2
At 5.5", the Galaxy Note 2 is both a phone and a tablet - hence the 'phablet' moniker. But as much of the appeal comes the unique S-Pen technology. This stylus allows you to garner extra information about what's on the device's screen simply by hovering above it.
SPECS: Screen: 4.3", 480x800;
Processor: 1.2GHz dualcore;
Storage: 16GB, MicroSD; Camera: 8MP, 1080p;

BlackBerry's new handset is one on which the failing Canadian giant is pinning a lot of hope - and there are new features that make it stand out. Key to this is a keyboard that aims to use a touchscreen to deliver the kind of performance that many had come to love from a physical version.
SPECS: Screen: 4.2", 1280x768; Processor: 1.5GHz dualcore; Storage: 16GB, MicroSD; Camera: 8MP, 1080p; Size: 130x66x9mm, 138g
Samsung Galaxy S2
The S2 makes this list because it's simply such a cheap, excellent device. It's available free on bargain contracts and yet it still offers almost everything you could want from a smartphone. An excellent version of Android, augmented with clever touches from Samsung.
SPECS: Screen: 4.3", 480x800; Processor: 1.2GHz dualcore; Storage: 16GB, MicroSD; Camera: 8MP, 1080p; Size: 125x66x8.5mm, 116g
Nokia Lumia 920
Nokia's Lumia range remains the one that does best by Microsoft's new Windows Phone operating system, in large part because they augment it with features such as Here Maps and music services that mean you've always got a bit of freely accessible music to hand.
SPECS: Screen: 4.5", 1280x768; Processor: 1.5GHz dualcore; Storage: 32GB; Camera: 8.7MP, 1080p; Size: 130x71x10.7mm, 185g
Apple iPhone 4S
Apple's previous model iPhone hardly lacks any of the features of the latest version. It has one row fewer on its home screen, meaning you can't fit quite the same number of icons on in one go, but in terms of whether you can use the voice assistant Siri or whether you can run all the same apps, the 4S is as good as the 5. And it has the crucial advantage of being substantially cheaper. It may not quite have the slimline appeal or the light feel of the 5, but in the face of decent savings, Apple fans may struggle to resist this old classic, even with its small screen.
SPECS: Screen: 3.5", 960x640; Processor: 800MHz dualcore; Storage: 16GB; Camera: 8MP, 1080p; Size: 115x59x9.3mm, 140g"
