iPhone 5

1. Apple iPhone 5

The iPhone 5 is without a doubt the best iPhone Apple has produced, but anything less would have been a failure. The iPhone 5 is stunningly thin and light, has an excellent screen and an outstanding, best in class camera. ...

The HTC One is one of the best designed phones we've ever used. It has an outstanding display and offers fast and smooth performance. However, its battery life is below average, its new camera technology isn't a revolution and the ...

3. Sony Xperia Z Android phone

Boasting a 5in, full HD 1080p display, excellent performance, good battery life and water and dust-resistance, the glass-clad Xperia Z is easily the best smartphone Sony has ever produced. It's only let down by a poor quality loudspeaker and a ...

4. Google Nexus 4 Android phone

There's no doubt about it, the Nexus 4 represents outstanding value for money. The lack of 4G and no expandable memory will push some potential users elsewhere, but the combination of an excellent screen, an attractive and well constructed design ...

If you can handle the large size of the Galaxy Note II, Samsung has produced arguably one of the best smartphones on the market. Outstandingly smooth performance, an improved S Pen and excellent battery life combine to make the Galaxy ...

6. Samsung Galaxy S III Android phone

The Samsung Galaxy S III may not have deserved all of the hype that came with its release, as this is an evolutionary smartphone rather than a revolutionary one. Regardless, Samsung's combination of impressive hardware and excellent, intuitive software makes ...

7. HTC One X Android phone

The HTC One X features a superb design, a fantastic display and offers excellent performance along with some very well designed software. Poor battery life and some annoying inconsistencies in software are downsides to an otherwise excellent Android phone.

8. Samsung Galaxy S III 4G Android phone

The Samsung Galaxy S III 4G takes all that we loved from the original Galaxy S III and adds 4G network capability. It certainly achieves impressive, super fast data speeds on the Telstra and Optus 4G networks and the latest ...

9. Samsung Galaxy Note Android phone

The Samsung Galaxy Note is an interesting device that’s been designed as an all-in-one smartphone and tablet. Whether it holds any appeal will depend on you getting your head (and hands) around its mammoth size. If you’re comfortable with the ...

11. Motorola RAZR HD Android phone

The Motorola RAZR HD's big battery definitely lasts a little longer than many of its competitors, giving it a slight advantage. This is a well-built smartphone with some intuitive software but the RAZR HD's industrial look and feel won't strike ...

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
