Mobile phones: best of the best!

Your guide to getting the best.

Every mobile phone manufacturer has their ultimate model, the pinnacle of their engineering (and marketing) skills which they parade to the world. However, the handsets themselves are quite diverse, meaning there are a variety of feature-packed, stylish phones that are almost too good to give up, provided you have the cash. If you are looking for a new geek toy you can wow your friends with, here are some of the options available from the major mobile players.

Apple iPhone 3G

Apple iPhone 3G

This is an obligatory mention, so we will get it out of the way first. Of course, Apple only offers one mobile phone so it is the company’s best and brightest by default. Nevertheless, Apple has set the bar quite high with the iPhone 3G, building a solid phone with an intuitive interface based on the company’s own desktop operating system. It is a mobile powerhouse that is constantly being touted as a rival to mobile gaming platforms like the PlayStation Portable and the Nintendo DS, and it has plenty of features.

You are likely to get as many sneers as you will get “wows” from friends and strangers when you pull out the iPhone 3G — it has become the ultimate “love it or hate it” handset. The argument has ensued since January 2007 when the original iPhone was first revealed. Five months after the 3G version's local launch, however, there is still reasonable consumer demand and the iPhone 3G a must-have for any Apple fan. Sure, you can get more functionality from other mobile phones, but with Google's Android yet to make an appearance and the BlackBerry OS not appealing to everyone, the iPhone 3G is the only viable alternative to a Windows Mobile device for some.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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