BlackBerry's first ever Android smartphone
Weight: 192g | Dimensions: 147 x 77.2 x 9.4mm | OS: Android Lollipop | Screen size: 5.4-inch | Resolution: 1440 x 2560 | CPU: Snapdragon 808 | RAM: 3GB | Storage: 32GB | Battery: 3410mAh | Rear camera: 18MP | Front camera: 2MP
At 5.4 inches the BlackBerry Priv falls just outside the 5.5-inch cut-off we've allowed ourselves for the best phablet round up, but there are a couple of reasons why you should still consider it.
Firstly it has a physical QWERTY keyboard, something of a rarity in today's market, and it's hidden by an old-school slider - which is rather lovely.
Secondly it runs stock Android, but BlackBerry has teamed up with DTEK to added some handy security features. It's not perfect, with some patchy performance and a high price tag, but do give it a look.

Moto X Play
A phablet for "on the go" types
Weight: 169g | Dimensions: 148 x 75 x 10.9mm | OS: Android Lollipop | Screen size: 5.5-inch | Resolution: 1080 x 1920 | CPU: Snapdragon 615 | RAM: 2GB | Storage: 16/32GB | Battery: 3630mAh | Rear camera: 21MP | Front camera: 5MP
The Moto X Play does a lot right with an impressive camera, superb battery life and attractive price, but there's a frustrating number of missing features and options.
Of course, the low price tag means it doesn't need all the bells and whistles and if you're on a tighter budget but want to maximise your screen size this is a good option.

Microsoft Lumia 950 XL
Tempting for the Windows faithful, but perhaps no one else
Weight: 165g | Dimensions: 151.9 x 78.4 x 8.1mm | OS: Windows 10 | Screen size: 5.7-inch | Resolution: 1440 x 2560 | CPU: Snapdragon 810 | RAM: 3GB | Storage: 32GB | Battery: 3300mAh | Rear camera: 20MP | Front camera: 5MP
Windows is back on smartphones, and the Lumia 950 XL is currently the biggest handset touting Windows 10 Mobile.
There's a load of power, strong screen and decent camera, plus access to Microsoft's fleet of Office apps including Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
It does have a few shortcomings though, with its app store unable to match Android and iOS, and several inconsistencies in performance.
