The range of premium smartphones available is bewilderingly wide. Should you choose Apple or Android? Budget or budget-busting?
We’ve tested a range to help you decide, from the good-value Motorola Moto G up to the all-singing Samsung Galaxy S5. Note that all but the Yotaphone are available free if you buy them with the right contract – our prices are for the handset on its own.

The most stylish phones are the Apple iPhone 5s and the HTC One (M8), though if it’s photography you’re interested in, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is unbeatable.
All the phones here have excellent displays, though none better than the Samsung Galaxy S5 which is the most feature-packed handset here. And it’s waterproof, as is the solid and dependable Sony Xperia Z2 which steals the crown for best audio through its noise-cancelling headphones.
Finally, the budget winner is the Motorola Moto G which offers outstanding value.
