Our best touchscreen phone article is constantly updated.
Quite simply, touch screen technology is the innovation we now expect to see in some shape or form from every new smartphone that launches.
Swapping a button-bashing existence for a softer sensing interface we can press, swipe, pinch and zoom, means we can now do a little bit more than simply stare into that pint-sized screen of ours.
If the only QWERTY keyboard you want to see on a daily basis is the one nestled next to your office computer, here's our pick of the best touchscreen smartphones available right now in the UK.
1. Samsung Galaxy S2
The Galaxy brand has restored our faith in Samsung's ability to make great phones, and with Google's Android OS and some impressive touchscreen technology, the S2 continues that trend.
Housed within a supremely slender form, the 4.27-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen is an ideal surrounding for viewing your 8-megapixel snaps.
Running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and packing a 1.2Ghz dual-core Exynos processor ensures there is plenty of zip for your web browsing and with eye-popping colours it's perfect for watching a plethora of video formats on the go.

2. Apple iPhone 4S
It wasn't the dramatically re-designed iPhone 5 we had hoped for, but the iPhone 4S still features one of the slickest smartphone displays money can buy.
An 8-megapixel camera and 1080p HD video recording aside, a new A5 dual-core processor means even the most graphically demanding iPhone games run more fluidly and lag-free on the gorgeous 3.5-inch Retina display. Like the iPhone 4 the 800:1 contrast ratio and 960x640 resolution makes the 4S a suitable partner for all your multimedia viewing needs.

3. Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc
Despite the Xperia Play hogging the media limelight, the Arc has captured our imaginations from the latest range of Sony Ericsson handsets much in part to the gorgeous 4.2-inch touchscreen display.
With a curved-body design making it one of the most comfortable to grip in your hand, the new Reality Display which uses LED backlighting along with the Mobile Bravia Engine, should serve your video playback, browsing and deliver a slick response to touch.

4. Samsung Galaxy Nexus
Arriving as the world's first Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone, the newest Nexus family member follows in the impressive touchscreen footsteps of its close Galaxy compatriots.
Powered by the same 1.2GHz dual-core processor nestled inside the Samsung Galaxy S2, the Galaxy Nexus hosts a vibrant 4.6-inch Super AMOLED HD screen that'll do full justice to your 720p videos, internet browsing and the raft of camera features which includes the excellent single motion panorama mode.

5. Motorola Razr
The iconic Razr brand returns (minus the clamshell design), delivering us one of the most premium Android smartphones on the market.
Running on Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread, the Razr packs a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording capabilities and a stunningly vibrant 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display which puts it in good company with the Samsung Galaxy S2 and the iPhone 4S in terms of crisp visuals and great clarity.
