Here we have a selection of the best smartphones available right now in the UK. They’re organised by price from high end to low end so there is something for everyone.
Samsung Galaxy S3
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is the best selling smartphone of 2012. It’s still one of the most powerful smartphones out at the moment even though it’s quite a few months old already. It features a huge 4.8-inch 1280×720(HD) screen which is perfect for viewing images and video on. It runs on a snappy 1.4Ghz quad-core processor, has 1GB of RAM and has a very good 8 megapixel rear facing camera. It comes in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variations and also has a MicroSD card slot, so you’re covered in terms of storage for your media. It comes in blue and white, and runs on Android.
The iPhone 5 just very recently released has been a very popular device from the get go, all iPhones are. It looks very similar to nearly all the iPhones just with a taller screen. But it is now a lot thinner and lighter. It has a 4-inch screen, an updated A6 processor, a new aluminium and glass enclosure and comes in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variations. It beats all other phones when it comes to apps even if it is not as powerful as its competitors. It’s available in black and white.
HTC One X
HTC One X is a bit of an under dog when it comes to the smartphone market. The device is just as powerful and as good as the Samsung Galaxy S3 and iPhone 5.

The device itself is wrapped in once piece of polycarbonate which even though is plastic, feels amazing. It’s one of the most gorgeous devices available right now. The device runs on Android.
The Nexus 4 only just recently was released by Google. Even though it’s in the mid-ranged section it is easily just as powerful as the high end devices, without the high price tag. It has a 4.7-inch 1280×720(HD) display, an 8 megapixel rear facing camera, wireless charging, SilmPort HDMI, 2GB of RAM and comes in 8GB and 16GB variations.

Samsung Galaxy Ace 2
The Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 is one of the best value smartphones you can get right now. You can easily pick one up for under £200. It can run most Android apps and the display is just good enough for most. The camera isn’t too bad either but don’t expect anything special. It’s made for the basic user who just wants a smartphone for a very decent price. You’ll of course still be able to destroy those pigs in Angry Birds.
