Best mobile phone deals: June 2015...

mobile phone deals

galaxy s6 deals

1. Samsung Galaxy S6

Simply the best phone in the world this year

TechRadar's favourite and top-ranked phone right now is the Samsung Galaxy S6. It's got all the features you'd want in a brand new market-leading smartphone, as well as fantastic looks, super build quality and a really great camera. This is not a cheap phone but if you take a look below you'll see we've found some surprisingly good deals!

  • The Good: + Great for media | + Amazing camera | + Super sharp screen
  • The Bad: - Battery life isn't good enough | - Very expensive

mobile phone deals

iphone 6 deals

2. Apple iPhone 6

Probably the best iPhone ever produced

Our second-favourite phone is the iPhone 6 - certainly the best phone Apple has ever created and definitely worth the extra money over an iPhone 5S. The larger screen, better keyboard and improved battery life make it a much more useable device than ever before.

  • The Good: + Great design | + Improved battery | + Better keyboard
  • The Bad: - Still quite pricey | - Screen is low-res next to the competition

mobile phone deals

htc one m9 deals

3. HTC One M9

Looks fantastic and has all the features to match

The HTC One M8 was our favourite phone for the whole of 2014, but this year's entry the HTC One M9 is down at number 3 - still a highly commendable position given the immense competition. The camera is good, though not as brilliant as the two phone above, and everything else about the M9 is right up there with the very best money can buy.

  • The Good: + Premium design | + Excellent build quality | + Great camera
  • The Bad: - Expensive | - Weak battery performance | - Few improvements

mobile phone deals

galaxy s6 edge

4. Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

Sexy looks that'll make everyone stop and look

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is practically the same as the S6 at the top of this page but with a crucial difference - the screen curves down on both sides. It makes the phone look truly stunning and also enables a few nifty new features that aren't possible on flat-screened phones. Check out the deals we've found...

  • The Good: + Eye-catching design | + Super-sharp screen | + Powerful performance | + Stunning camera
  • The Bad: - VERY expensive | - Disappointing battery | - Edge screen offers little | - No microSD

mobile phone deals

LG G4 deals

5. LG G4

LG's new flagship has a stylish leather back

LG's new flagship Android phone is another belter. With a great screen and up to date specs, the killer feature is the leather back which is a unique feature. You can opt for plastic ones instead if you like, but really - why would you? We really like this phone and will be reviewing it very soon.

mobile phone deals

xperia z3 compact

6. Sony Xperia Z3 Compact

Has all the features of the Z3 but smaller

If you are looking for a feature-packed phone that looks fantastic and performs brilliantly, then you'll be very pleased with the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact. It's actually a smidgen smaller than the iPhone 6, which means it's still packing a good-sized screen but it's more manageable for small hands.

  • The Good: + Great design | + Super screen | + Good battery life
  • The Bad: - Camera isn't the best | - Sony's apps offer little

mobile phone deals

galaxy note 4

7. Samsung Galaxy Note 4

Samsung's latest Note is super-powerful

The Galaxy Note is the phone that made big screens fashionable and it's still the best phablet available today. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4's 5.7-inch screen is simply gorgeous, extending almost to the edge of the handset so you can still hold it on one hand comfortably.

  • The Good: + Fantastic screen | + Powerful performance | + Excellent camera
  • The Bad: - It's expensive

mobile phone deals

iphone 6 plus

8. iPhone 6 Plus

The biggest iPhone ever is visually stunning

The iPhone 6 Plus is the best looking phablet around. Its specs don't match the Android powerhouses like the HTC One M8 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4, and its sheer size does make it tricky to hold, but there's no denying Apple's beautiful 5.5 incher is a winner.

  • The Good: + Best looking phablet | + Great HD screen | + Strong camera
  • The Bad: - It's very big | - Very expensive

mobile phone deals

xperia z3 deals

9. Sony Xperia Z3

A great all-rounder that offers great performance

Sony has been releasing new phones thick and fast in the last few years, and the latest in a long line of flagship handsets is the Sony Xperia Z3. It's got all the high-end specs you'd want, and the screen is the brightest of any in our top 10.

  • The Good: + Brilliant battery | + PS4 Remote Play is excellent | + Premium build
  • The Bad: - OS is a big buggy

mobile phone deals

nexus 6 deals

10. Google Nexus 6

Google's biggest phone ever is excellent

Google chooses a different hardware partner for each yearly refresh of its Nexus flagship smartphone, and the Nexus 6 is built expertly by Motorola. It's certainly not a small phone: its near 6-inch display is about as big as it gets when it comes to smartphones and for that reason it's somewhat of an acquired taste, some will find it far too big, others will be absolutely besotted by it.

  • The Good: + Super-size screen | + Latest versions of Android | + Great camera
  • The Bad: - It's very large | - Expensive compared to Nexus 5

mobile phone deals

lg g3 deals

11. LG G3

LG's flagship phone looks and performs excellently

We reckon the number 5 smartphone in the world right now is the LG G3. Like its predecessor, if you're after power and precision (perhaps over design and form) then this is a winner. The camera and battery combo is superb, and the improved user interface will woo you immediately.

  • The Good: + Great screen | + Decent camera | + Improved interface
  • The Bad: - Lacking in premium design | - Battery life is lower than expected
