Top 10 smartphones of 2016

At TechRadar we check out every phone under the sun, putting the ones that matter through our rigorously vigorous testing process to create our indepth mobile phone reviews.

However, with so many to choose from, we’ve spent hours whittling them down to a top ten, taking into account the power, specs, design and most importantly: value for money, although we’ll always point you in the direction of the latest handsets.

After all, nobody wants to be carting around a phone that won’t be getting any updates in a year’s time, right?

Here are our rankings for the best smartphones around, currently available in the UK.

    iphone se no.10 ?!!?!?! are you idiot????

    didnt you think that maybe there are like 30% of costumers that would prefer an smartphone and not tabltphone????

    in my opinion iphone se is even better than 6S (not mention the price).

    i have tested the camera between se and galaxy 7….the results were surprising in real world…..!!!

    Even with top 10s like this I'm still stumped on what phone to get. Coming from a HTC One M8 I've enjoyed HTC's skin and brilliant sound quality so from that I very keen for the HTC 10. But now I've found out that the LG G5 comes with a deal that comes with the b&o module which has great audio too (would love to see a comparison) but even then the Samsung s7 provides a excellent camera and a vibrant screen as well as its own powerful process. Speed tests alone has seen the Samsung s7 exynos come out on top against the other two but even then I'm unsure on the ideal phone for me. Any advice or recommendation guys?
