Top 10 smartphones out now
 With so many different smartphones out there, choosing a new mobile phone can be tricky. But if you're on the hunt for a new handset, we can help you decide.
Here we've picked our top 10 mobiles from all of the phones available in the UK right now. You won't find any 'coming soon' mobiles here, read on for a chart of phones you can snap up straight away.
We update this top 10 mobile phones feature at least once a month, so it is always up-to-date with the very latest handsets on the market.

Nokia N8

The Nokia N8 isn't as svelte as some other current smartphones, but the added heft is worthwhile if you want a mobile that packs a camera of genuine class. The N8's 12-megapixel snapper has a xenon flash, so it will cope with most lighting conditions, and can also shoot high-def video. Bear in mind, however, that Nokia's new Windows Phone handsets are just around the corner.


Our pick of the current crop of Windows Phone 7 mobiles (at least until Windows Phone 7.5 lands), the HTC HD7 has a huge, responsive screen and Microsoft's impressive new mobile operating system. A 'pro' version, with slide-out keyboard, can also be had.

 LG Optimus 2X

The LG Optimus 2X was the first of the new breed of super-powered smartphones that run on dual-core processors. This slim handset also offers Full HD video recording and playback.

HTC Desire S

HTC has quickly made a name for itself as a market-leading mobile manufacturer and the HTC Desire S is one of its best. It's a strong upgrade on the original Desire and packs the latest version of Android.

Motorola Atrix

The Motorola Atrix is a powerhouse of a phone with huge potential, that falls just short of where we'd like it to be. The laptop docking option with the Atrix is a fantastic addition, but the experience could be improved. That said, it is overall a fantastic handset, and another leader among the growing Android clique.

BlackBerry Bold 9900

The BlackBerry Bold 9900 is the first of a new range of BlackBerry mobiles and, at the time of writing, it's just gone on sale. It sports a 2.8-inch touchscreen and runs the new BlackBerry 7 operating system on a 1.GHz processor. There's 768MB of RAM, making this is a nippy performer, and it also has a NFC chip for making contactless payments.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is a stunner, thanks to its 4.2-inch display and wonderfully thin profile. It runs the latest version of the Android operating system and has a really excellent camera. Sony Ericsson has recently unveiled this phone's successor - the Xperia Arc S - which benefits from a faster processor for snappier performance. That one will be out in the next few weeks.

Apple iPhone 4

The Apple iPhone 4 is a stunning smartphone backed up by the equally brilliant App Store. But after remaining our top handset for most of the past year, it's starting to be overtaken by newer competition. Expect the iPhone 5 to be announced any day now...

HTC Sensation

With its snappy dual-core processor, new intuitive Sense 3.0 UI, eight-megapixel camera and full HD video recording, we reckon the HTC Sensation has got to be the best phone HTC has ever produced. Keep an eye out, however, for the HTC Sensation XE. Expected out by the end of September, it has a faster processor and music playback powered by Beats.

Samsung Galaxy S2

This Samsung handset is an absolute joy to use - so much so that we struggled to find a flaw with it. From its gorgeous Super AMOLED Plus screen to its super-fast processor and full HD video recording, it ticks all the boxes and then some.
