The best mobile phones in the world right now
Want to buy a new smartphone? We pick out the best mobile phones available right now.
With so many different smartphones out there, choosing a new mobile phone can be tricky. But if you're on the hunt for a new handset, we can help you decide.

Here we've picked our top 10 mobiles, based on the best mobile phones available in the UK right now. You won't find any 'coming soon' mobiles here, this is a chart of phones you can snap up straight away.
10. Samsung Galaxy S

Though it has now been surpassed by the Galaxy S 2 (with its dual-core processor), the Galaxy S remains one of the best Android phones on the market - and now at a cheaper price.
9. LG Optimus 2X

The first of the new breed of super-powered smartphones that run on dual-core processors, this slim handset from LG also offers Full HD video recording and playback.
8. Google Nexus S

3. Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc
Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc
The Xperia Arc is a stunner, thanks to its 4.2-inch display and wonderfully thin profile. It runs the latest version of the Android operating system and has a really excellent camera.
2. Apple iPhone 4

The iPhone 4 is a stunning smartphone backed up by the equally brilliant App Store. But after remaining our top handset for most of the past year, it's finally been knocked down into second place.
1. Samsung Galaxy S2
Samsung Galaxy S2
A Samsung is an absolute joy to use - so much so that we struggled to find a flaw with it. From its gorgeous Super AMOLED Plus screen to its super-fast processor and full HD video recording, it ticks all the boxes and then som.
