5. LG G3

A superb flagship phone for an excellent price

OS: Android 5 | Screen size: 5.5-inch | Resolution: 1440p | Memory: 2GB/3GB | Storage: 16GB/32GB | Battery: removable 3,000mAh | Rear camera: 13MP | Front camera: 2.1MP

We're currently reviewing the LG G4, but until we test out its new features, the LG G3 remains on our list for its simple selling points: its price and an ultra clear screen. It's got a lot of other technology in there to attract you too, but it's those two elements that show it off so well, as well as fan favorite features like a removable battery and memory card slot.

LG has always offered a premium experience for a lower price than its rivals, and with a QHD screen it's got four times the pixels of some phones on this list, and it also comes with a number of other enhancements too - although with those extra pixels packed in, the display is a bit darker than others on the market.

Laser-based auto-focus? Check. Improved design? Check. Overhauled and simplified UI? Double check. It's a little big for some hands, thanks to the 5.5-inch display, and the camera isn't up to scratch - but for the price it's easy to forgive those elements when there's so much else to love in this handset.
