Best Mobile Phones 2014: 10 Best Smartphones You Can Buy
Best smartphones, mobile phones, cell phones. Whatever you call them they all have at least one thing in common: they’re the hottest kind of tech right now. They sell millions, and make billions and there's plenty more to come in 2014, but which should you choose if you're buying right now? We pick our top ten rated handsets to look out for.

First you need to decide which operating system you want to go with. You have the choice of an iPhone and its easy to use iOS mobile operating system, a huge number of Android phones powered by Google, Microsoft’s Windows Phone and BlackBerry 10, though sadly no current Windows Phone or Blackberry phone makes our top 10.
iOS offers the slickest experience and best apps and games, Android the greatest choice of hardware and more potential for tweaking the phone to your needs. Windows Phone is a great alternative though its lack of support by manufacturers limits your hardware options and app support still trails Android and iOS. Meanwhile BlackBerry is only available on the one or two BlackBerry handsets still available - it's a nice enough option but only for a niche market.
2014 has so far been a stellar year for smartphones with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus finally bringing Apple to the big phone party. We've also had the debut of Quad HD screens on the likes of the LG G3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and you can also finally buy smaller Android handsets that offer all the bells and whistles of their bigger flagship siblings.
Even if your budget is a bit tight you won't be held back as the likes of the Moto G offer excellent all round performance for half the money of the big phones.
Which would you pick from the current bunch? Rifling through the phone reviews that get the TrustedReviews seal of approval, these are our picks of the best mobile phones you can buy right now.
