Update: We've finally wrapped our fingers around the stunning new Nexus 5X and

Here at techradar, we check out every phone under the sun, putting the ones that matter through our vigorous testing process to create our in-depth 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 value for money. And we'll always point you in the direction of the latest handsets - after all, nobody wants to be carting around a phone that doesn't get any updates in a year's time, right?

So whether it's one of the many slick Android handsets, the latest iPhone or one from a range of other cool operating systems, we've extensively tested them all so you don't have to!

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

HTC One M9

10. HTC One M9

Not quite up the 5 star standard, but HTC still has the most beautiful phone around

OS: Android 5 | Screen size: 5-inch | Resolution: 1920x1080 | Memory: 3GB |Storage: 32GB |Battery:2840mAh | Rear camera: 20.7MP | Front camera: 4MP

HTC has sat comfortably at the top of our charts for the last couple of years, and while it's not quite managed it in 2015, the M9 is still a phone with the best build quality out there.

None of the old favourites are missing, so BoomSound enhancement still turbocharges the audio and the Sense overlay remains one of our favourites, thanks to its sophistication and power.

The camera has been boosted to 20.7MP, although doesn't have the impressive snapping power of some of the other phones on the market. The design language still means this is one of our favourite phones to stick in our pocket.

It's a touch more expensive than before, and doesn't take a huge leap forward from last year's model, but that was nearly perfect, so where was HTC to go?
