10 best mobile phones in the world today

Update: The new iPhone has been reviewed and makes it into the best smartphone top 10 - but where does it land?

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.

Nexus 6

10. Nexus 6

Google's best ever phone is also its biggest ever

OS: Android 5 | Screen size: 5.96-inch | Resolution: 2560 x 1440 | Memory: 3GB | Storage: 32GB/64GB | Battery: 3,220mAh | Rear camera: 13MP | Front camera: 2MP

Google's latest Nexus is a phone that moves away from the usual 'super-cheap superphone' and into phablet territory. The good news is the screen is also supercharged: massive at 6 inches, it also has a stunning QHD resolution.

You'll always receive the latest updates to Google's Android OS with this one, and while it's certainly something you'd have to use two handed (make sure you're fine with that before buying, as it's put a lot of people off that we've shown it too) its tremendous display, premium specs and great use of Android 5.0 Lollipop make the Nexus 6 one of the best phablets to date.

It's not cheap, but as it's the best Nexus ever made, you won't need to hold onto your money. You'll require both hands to keep a grip on this two-handed monster.
