Apple iPhone 5c review: A colourful iPhone 5 with better battery life

If you're an existing iPhone user and weren't tempted by the iPhone 5, then the colourful 5c is worth considering as an upgrade. However, iPhone 5 owners should think carefully: there's very little difference between the core specifications of the two handsets, and iOS 7 is just a download away.

The Lumia 925 is a slimmer and lighter Windows Phone 8 handset than its 920 predecessor, with a neater and more ergonomic design. It lacks integrated wireless charging but supports LTE and NFC, and has an excellent 4.5in. AMOLED screen.

Samsung Galaxy S4 review

With the Galaxy S4, Samsung has squeezed a superb 5-inch screen and a host of high-end features into a slightly slimmer, thinner and lighter chassis than its S III predecessor. It's an excellent handset, but some will find the S4 overladen with unnecessary features and too expensive.

If you're a fan of keyboard-equipped BlackBerry smartphones, you won't be disappointed by the Q10. However the app store needs filling out and the small, square screen isn't ideal for some uses.

HTC One review

HTC has pulled out all the stops with the One, which looks great, performs well and includes some clever features. The lack of storage expansion and the persistence of BlinkFeed are irritations, but overall the HTC One stands up well against rival flagship handsets.

Asus PadFone 2 review

The second generation of this dockable smartphone/tablet combo has a lot to recommend it, although we'd prefer a better tablet screen, a storage expansion slot (or two) and a standard Micro-USB connector.

BlackBerry Z10 review

The Z10 is a nicely designed handset with a superb touchscreen and good specifications that include LTE and NFC support. The new BlackBerry 10 OS offers a decent user experience once you get used to it, although we'd like to see a physical home button.

Google Nexus 4 review

The LG-built Nexus 4 offers terrific value for money, if you don't mind its moderate battery life and lack of LTE support. Shame it's currently sold out at Google's Play store.

Orange San Diego review

The first Intel-powered smartphone offers excellent value for money, with its large screen, good battery life and NFC support. On the downside, it lacks storage expansion, runs Android 2.3 and some apps may not run on the Atom processor.

Samsung Galaxy S III

The 4.8in. quad-core Galaxy S III is a very impressive device that currently represents the state of the smartphone art. That's why we've given it an Editors' Choice award.

Nokia Lumia 900

The 4.3in. Lumia 900 is not especially pocket-friendly, and not everyone will need such a large screen. If you want a Windows Phone and find the Lumia 900 too bulky and pricey, take a look at the more affordable 3.7in. Lumia 800.

Sony Xperia S

The Xperia S is a large and somewhat ungainly smartphone with a superb screen and some high-end features. However, it's severely let down by its lack of storage expansion and sealed-in battery.
