From Samsung to iPhone: The world's ten best mobile phones

1. Best for budget buyers
Palm Pixi Plus
The Palm Pixi is a well-kept secret that's great for apps, has a superb touchscreen, and a snazzy operating system. Palm has the best interface apart from the iPhone, cleverly mixing contacts, Facebook details and multiple calendars.
£110 on pay-as-you-go, no contract
2. Best for the stylish
Samsung Omnia 7
The metal-clad Omnia 7 will turn heads. It has a dazzling display and is a great fit in the hand. It's another handset using Microsoft's surprisingly appealing Windows Phone 7 interface, which integrates contacts from Facebook.
Free on £35 monthly contract
10. Best for business users
BlackBerry Bold 9700
The best Qwerty keyboard on any mobile and the Bold 9700 is compact and powerful. The email service is unbeaten for speed, security and reliability. The operating system is quirky, but it's a stylish phone.
Free on £25 monthly contract

Whether you're in the market for the bells and whistles of the iPhone, want music on the go, or simply need to make a few calls, there's a handset here that's perfect for you
