HTC Desire reviewHTC Desire
The HTC Desire is one of the most impressive phones of all time. Despite being significantly cheaper than the iPhone, it can match or beat everything that the iPhone does. An Android smartphone with a fabulously responsive touchscreen, the Desire packs in a huge choice of apps, brilliant web browsing, one of the biggest and best screens ever, a good camera, a music player and GPS too. You want more? Add in a superfast processor, monster battery, WiFi and a 3.5mm headphone jack and you've got the perfect phone.

HTC Wildfire reviewHTC Wildfire
The HTC Wildfire brings Android technology to the budget smartphone sector.

BlackBerry 8520 reviewBlackBerry 8520
An entry-level BlackBerry Curve, with a new-fangled Trackpad to replace the annoying trackball on previous Curve models. The 8520 offers a full QWERTY keyboard, mobile e-mail, a basic camera and a media player, plus good memory and connectivity. But it cuts corners with the display, camera and lack of high-end features that are common in many smartphones.
Best buy: *Free* with free line rental from Mobiles.co.uk (Black) or Mobiles.co.uk (Violet) or Dialaphone (Black) or Dialaphone (White); or £149.95 on PAYG from Dialaphone (Black or White).
Nokia 5230 reviewNokia 5230
The 5230 is an entry-level touchscreen smartphone. Its key features are its large touchscreen, A-GPS with Ovi Maps, 3G, downloadable apps from the Ovi store and outstanding battery life. In other ways it's a disappointment, with a poor camera, a mono speaker, no WiFi and no video calling.
Best buy: *Free* with free line rental from Dialaphone (Black) or free from Three (Black or White); or £77.95 on PAYG from the Carphone Warehouse (Black, Pink or White) or £78.95 from Dialaphone (White).
Samsung KP500 reviewLG Cookie
The LG KP500 is a touchscreen phone for those on a budget. It's a compact device but with a large touchscreen display that's easy and fun to use. With a 3.2 megapixel camera, a media player, an FM radio, Bluetooth wireless connectivity and a memory card slot, this phone has all the essentials. Although it misses out on 3G and a top class camera, it has most features that most people will want, and for the money you'd be hard pressed to find anything better than this!
Best buy: £49.90 on PAYG from Mobiles.co.uk (Black or Pink) or £49.95 from the Carphone Warehouse (Black or Pink).
Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 reviewSony Ericsson Xperia X10
The Sony Ericsson X10 is a superphone! It's a touchscreen smartphone running Google's Android operating system and layered with Sony Ericsson's unique user interface specially designed for the phone. It's supremely powerful, but very easy to use too. Tech specs include an absolutely enormous 4 inch screen, an 8.1 megapixel camera, GPS, HSPA, 1GB memory plus an 8GB memory card, and a monster battery.
Best buy: *Free* with free line rental from Mobiles.co.uk (Black).
