You're here for one thing: to find the best phone. Luckily for you, 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?

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 the UK.

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium

10. Sony Xperia Z5 Premium

The world's first 4K screen in a phone - with some amazing bits bolted on too

OS: Android 5.1 | Screen size: 5.5-inch | Resolution: 5520 х 4140 | RAM: 3GB | Storage: 32GB | Battery: 3,430mAh | Rear camera: 23MP | Front camera: 5.1MP

Look, we know it's got a 4K screen. And yes, we know that sounds a bit mental. But trust us when we say that it's not as ludicrous as it sounds.

It's a brilliant display - there's nothing more pin-sharp on the market at 806ppi density. We're not convinced you'll be able to SEE those extra pixels, and they're not turned on all the time, but it's there.

What makes this phone great is the fact it's the phablet version of the Xperia Z5, which means it has a great camera, is waterproof and allows you to hear all your audio in beautiful upscaled sound quality.

Battery life could be better, but it's no worse than a lot on this list - if you want to try something different, the Z5 Premium could well be it.
