Samsung Galaxy S2

Samsung Galaxy S2The Samsung Galaxy SII may seem past its sell by date but remember this was a top of the line handset only a couple of years back and it still out performs most mid to high end phones currently available. If your looking for a great phone at a great price or a more portable form factor this ones well worth a look!

Apple iPhone 4S

iPhone 4SApple dont make mid range phones, they simply drop the price of previous models. The 4S was top of the line until last year and remains a great handset. Many people prefer the form factor of this phone to its successor, it is also a lot cheaper. If you want a more compact iPhone for a good price this is the one to go for.

Samsung Galaxy S3

Samsung Galaxy S3The S3 remains the most popular. The fact is the S3 had way more features than the average user could cope with and a fantastic screen and camera to boot. In spite of being superceded by more recent models the S3 retains its crown as the UK's top selling handset, and with good reason.

Apple iPhone 5

iPhone 5The latest iPhone, one of the best featured phones on the market and undeniably the coolest brand. On top of that it has the most intuitive interface, has fewer security issues than Android due to the more stringent validation process on the App Store vs Google Play and is more compact than its rivals.

Samsung Galaxy S4

Samsung Galaxy S4Currently Samsungs flagship phone, it has been criticised as being a cosmetic / software upgrade to the S3, that is simply not true, the S4 has a range of improvements to both hardware as well as software. This is a very strong selling phone at the moment and at some point is sure to start outselling the S3!


HTC OneHTC make very high quality phones, the chasis on this is machined from aluminium, arguably better quality than Apple. On top of this HTC have been working with Android for years and were the market leader for some time. This phone offers a quad core processor and uses HTC Sense on top of Android OS v4.1.

Recommended Handsets

Above is a short list of our most recommended handsets. Some are best sellers you will already be familiar with, others are not so well known but are still a great choice. Brands we suggest you look at for mid range handsets are Samsung, HTC and Sony. They all make good handsets, HTC are the best build quality, Samsung tend to have slightly better specs. The BlackBerry Z10 is worth a look too, its expensive but a great phone, anyone who like BlackBerry a couple of years back may like that one! Other than that, its all down to personal preference, happy hunting!

Prices can vary a lot between networks, and so can the coverage. Orange (Now EE) is one of the more expensive, but has some of the best coverage. 3 Network is almost always the cheapest, and has generally good coverage but its worth checking before you commit yourself to a contract. Supported networks in our database are:

  • Orange
  • O2
  • T-Mobile
  • Talk Mobile
  • 3 Mobile
  • EE
  • Virgin
  • VodaFone

Available Contract Types

There are a range of contract types available, ranging from one month Sim Only deals to 24 month contracts. The shorter the contract the less tie in you have, but the more expensivte the relative cost of the handset becomes. For example, it costs less per month to offset the £500 valiue of a Galaxy S4 over 24 months than it is over 12.

  • 12 Months
  • 1 Month Sim Only
  • 18 Months
  • Pay As You Go
  • 24 Months
  • Data Only

Which are the Most Popular Mobile Phone Brands

The most popular phones on the market at the moment are the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the iPhone5.

These are both excellent phones, but they are also the most expensive handsets on the market.

If you are looking for a good smartphone but want to save some money, try the older (but still more than capable) Samsung Galaxy S2 or the iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S.

Other good alternatives on Android are the Sony Xperia range and HTC. HTC do not seem as popular these days but they are great phones with far superior build quality to Samsung.

For Windows Phones (Windows Mobile) we recommend you take a look at the Nokia Lumia series or some of the HTC windows phones.

If you want a phone for email then a classic BlackBerry is still hard to beat. It may be that email is available on any / every phone nowerdays, but BlackBerry still does it better, furthermore you cannot approach the type speed of a physical QWERTY when using a touch screen, nor are touch screens as accurate. On top of this BlackBerry's "Old" style track pad is vastly superior when it comes to positioning your cursor at a particular piont in the text, so, if you want email dont write of BlackBerry just yet!

Mobile Phone Contract Types – Which is Best for You?

24 Month contracts are the cheapest in terms of offsetting the handset cost simply because the price of the phone is offset over more months.

18 and 12 Month contracts are the most expensive by the same logic, however the benefit is you get upgrades faster. If you pass your old handsets onto your children / partner then these contracts allow you to get more handets "into the family". Alternatively you can sell your old handset to offset the cost each year.

SIM Only Deals were once a niche product but have increased dramatically in popularity over the last year or two, probably due to the tough economic climate. These are by far the cheapest way to run your phone, but you will need a handset. If you are coming to the end of your contract and are happy with your existing model, or can pick a handset up cheap second hand from a friend or classified adds then these are a great option. Another key beneifit is there is no tie in with most of these deals, you only need to give one months notice of cancellation.

Pay as You Go used to be the cheapest and most flexible way to own a phone. Whilst they may still be the most flexible, if you are spending more than £8 per month on credit you would probably be better off with a SIM Only deal.
