The best Samsung phones: We round-up the best Samsung mobile phones and smartphones on the market

Samsung may be better known for its televisions in Australia, but the South Korean company has made a splash in the mobile phone market, largely thanks to its popular Galaxy S Android smartphone. Samsung also has a rich history of producing capable "feature phones", and has even created its own mobile operating system called Bada. The Samsung Wave smartphone is the first mobile phone to use the Bada OS, with more phones to follow next year. Samsung also manufactures smartphones running the Windows Phone 7 pplatform.

Samsung Galaxy S

The Samsung Galaxy S possesses the best display we've seen on a smartphone (though we're yet to review the iPhone 4). However, this Android handset is let down by a few niggling annoyances, particularly the all-plastic build and the TouchWIZ UI, which that lacks the polish this premium smartphone deserves. The Galaxy S is a great smartphone, but it sits a notch below HTC's Desire.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
