Looking for a new smartphone? Why not start with our top rated selections? These smartphones are a rank of the top 10 products based on review scores by the PC World Australia editorial team.
The smartphone market is dominated by Apple's iPhone and Google's Android platform, and this is reflected in our August top rated list. Along with the iPhone 4, our top 10 list for this month includes no less than eight Android phones, headed by the excellent Samsung Galaxy S II, which scored a whopping 4.75/5 stars.
HTC is the most popular smartphone vendor in August, with its flagship Sensation joining the Incredible S, the Facebook inspired ChaCha, and the popular Desire HD, still a top seller at Vodafone.
We test all smartphones accurately and to the highest standards, so that our readers are as informed as possible. Our review process is designed to ensure that smartphones are assessed equally. The basic criteria used by our reviewers includes value, features, performance and design. We rate each product using a five-star scale, with one star being poor, and five stars being highly recommended.
2 / 10
The HTC Desire HD builds on the original Desire by adding a larger screen and updated software (from both Google and HTC). Aside from its questionable battery life, most of the Desire HD's flaws are minor. Put simply, the HTC Desire HD is a multimedia and Web powerhouse; it is one of the best smartphones on the market.
