17. Motorola Moto E

Price when reviewed: $160

Makes plenty of compromises to keep costs down, but performs where it counts; the Moto E is another winner from Motorola at a highly tempting price. This is the best sub-$200 handset by a country mile.

16. Sony Xperia Z3

Price when reviewed: $849

Sony Xperia Z3 - front

The successor to the Z3 isn't that much different. It's a touch slimmer and lighter than the Z2, the screen is brighter, and the processor is clocked a fraction higher, but almost everything else is the same. It's a very good Android smartphone, but if you can still find a Z2 for sale it'll be much cheaper and almost as good.

15. Sony Xperia Z2

Price when reviewed: $759

Sony proves that big really is beautiful - the Xperia Z2 provides a long-lasting alternative to the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One M8.

14. Nokia Lumia 930

Price when reviewed: $629

best phone Nokia Lumia 930

The Lumia 930 is a knock-out from the first moment you pick it up. It's a Windows Phone device, so it can't compete on apps, but the design of Nokia's flagship is sumptuous and right up there with the best around.

13. Motorola Moto x

Price when reviewed: $700

Best Phones Moto x

Motorola’s second generation Moto X hits most of the right notes, coupling beautiful design with a hatful of innovative - and useful - features.

12. Samsung Galaxy Alpha

Price when reviewed: $599 (reduced)

Best phone Samsung Galaxy Alpha

The Galaxy Alpha is Samsung's best looking smartphone to date, but it's short on features and the price is too high.

11. iPhone 6 Plus

Price when reviewed: $999

Apple iPhone 6 Plus review

 Apple’s 5.5in giant isn’t for everyone, but for some it may prove the perfect mid-point between an iPad and iPhone.
