Here’s a quick look at the 2021 phones we’ve already reviewed. Click the link on each to read the full, scored appraisal!
OnePlus 9 Pro: OnePlus’s best camera phone to date with top performance and style too, why only a 4,500 mAh battery, though!?
Oppo Find X3 Pro: Not the biggest brand, but this is a fantastic flagship with killer specs and a cool microlens perk.
ASUS ROG Phone 5: Do you need a gaming phone? Probably not, but if so, this is the best one you’ll find right now.
Sony Xperia 1 III: This top-end stunner might not be for novices, but it really is brilliant.
OnePlus Nord 2: Another flagship killer from OnePlus, with a nice build, excellent main camera and powerful performance – as long as you don’t need two-day battery life.
Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G: A big, beastly phone with dazzling cameras – but more than you probably need.
Samsung Galaxy S21: The plastic backing is a downgrade, but this is a stylish, well-equipped handset.
OnePlus 9: Camera upgrades balance out a design downgrade, but still a phone that’s easy to recommend to most.
Realme GT: A budget beast with huge power for the price, but iffy cameras.
Motorola Moto G50: A totally solid £200 5G phone for those on a budget.
OnePlus Nord CE 5G: Want an affordable, lightweight and elegant 5G phone? Bingo.
Asus Zenfone 8: A pleasingly compact and powerful phone with iffy battery life.
Xiaomi Mi 11: A slick flagship at a more palatable price, albeit with software and camera niggles.
Realme 8 Pro: A boldly-stylised budget flagship with a punchy screen and solid power. Great value!
Motorola Moto G30: Low on power, but an incredible value – with a 90Hz screen, too!
Vivo X60 Pro: Stunning gimbal-assisted video shooting, but with weaknesses elsewhere.
Motorola Moto G9 Plus: Not as cheap, but a smoother overall experience at a good price.
Motorola Moto G100: A proper mid-ranger from Moto, but only truly great if you plan to use the productivity accessories.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G: It’s a cheap 5G phone with some notable issues.
Huawei Mate X2: An awesome foldable device, albeit one held back by the lack of Google services.
Motorola Moto G10: Shockingly cheap, but you should pay the £30 extra for the G30 instead.
Microsoft Surface Duo: Sleek hardware and clever ideas can’t salvage this sluggish, buggy misfire.
