Our Top 5 Mobile Phones For The New Year


The array of quality handsets out there means that it’s truly hard to decide on a great phone when your contract is up. In the last half decade or so the smart phone world has expanded continuously and the days where the iPhone, or a couple of Android contenders were the only choice is long gone. 

Only a few years ago deciding on a new phone was crippling, in that there were so few options. Nowadays it’s an issue for the exact opposite reason. The paradox of choice means that because there are so many excellent phones on the market, it’s hard to decide on which one to go with. 

Going into 2015 there are numerous great handsets that could set your world alight and with this in mind we’ve gone right ahead and thrown caution to the wind and chosen five of our favourites.

IPhone 6/6 Plus

Whether you’re an Apple fan or not, you have to give the company credit for its two new devices. The iPhone 6 and the larger iPhone 6 Plus are excellent phones with a whole array of options, Apple’s famed high quality build and also are extremely stylish to boot. While purists may have been unhappy about the increased screen size, most users have taken to the new Apple products like ducks to water and it’s easy to understand.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4

The new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is a large phone or phablet, albeit one with all the bells and whistles. The huge AMOLED screen, extremely fast processor and its notepad like manner makes it a contender for the best phone of last year. Ideal for writing on or consuming media from it’s a pretty awesome device and one you’ll want to keep safe at all times.

HTC M8

The previous HTC M7 was an excellent device, however the HTC M8 softens any rough corners it had and really is a great all round device. It may be an evolution and not a revolution, but it’s a big leap. From its speedy processor, great display and also the fantastic aluminium body – it screams quality and though the camera may be a dividing factor for some, it’s a great handset. 

Samsung Galaxy Alpha

Many say that the Samsung Galaxy Alpha is the best phone that Samsung has ever produced – high praise indeed. This extremely pretty handset was super slim, made from high quality materials and came in at a very competitive price for the quality. The camera was also great and performance powerful. We really fell for it at Row.co.uk and a number of our staff would rate it very highly indeed. 

Sony Xperia Z3

There was once a time when Sony lagged well behind the rest of the Android and smart phone manufacturers. However, the excellent Xperia series has changed that dramatically and we’ve seen Sony produce generation after generation of high spec, very desirable, quality handsets. The latest Xperia is no different with its distinctive looks, powerful innards and fabulous camera. It’s a little different but it truly works.
