'easy and comfortable viewing'
'I really enjoy holding it for long periods of time and have reverted back to reading books on my phone, something I haven’t done since using my diddy-screened iPhone 4 two years ago.'
'The new look and feel brings with it a crisper and thinner font, a greater use of colour, and a layering system that gives everything added depth. '
'The iPhone 5S fully supports 2G and 3G (DC-HSPA and HSPA+) bands just as before but this time Apple has added in a host of additional 4G bands. '
'Some might see the plastic as regressive rather than progressive - it depends how much a lick of colour does for you - but any fears that you may have that C in 5C stands for "cheap" will disappear the moment you pick up the phone.'
'With the camera app, you have a new Automatic HDR mode, which applies HDR filters to objects and scenes before image capture. .'
Bright and cheerful new colors, Solid value
It's a cheaper iPhone, not a cheap iPhone
'At just over £80, locked to Virgin Mobile, the ZTE Blade V is clearly pitched towards the very budget conscious, ideal for those that want a cheap smartphone to take to school.'
'Neat-looking metallic rear. '
'For today's standard, the Blade V's screen is pretty small at 4in. '
All the right ingredients
'decent overall spec'
'The HTC Desire is one of the best looking smartphones available right now.'
'It looks and feels like a great little phone, but it’s impossible to view it in isolation and on the current market there are choices which present better value for money at (and in fact below) this price point. '
'The Desire 500 tackles the essentials well, doesn't cost the Earth and has a more interesting design than most budget smart phones. '
'There's no mistaking the Acer Liquid Z3 for a premium device.'
'The camera, as with the phone’s screen, suffers from poor colour management, weak image definition and sharpness concerns. '
'The display of our test model is quite bright: up toÂ 355 cd/mÂ².'
Good camera, Vibrant Display, Ergonomic build
