SMARTPHONES

APPLE iPHONE 12

From £799, apple.com

Apple has outdone itself. 5G has been added, the CPU has more power than you’re ever going to need, and the duallens rear camera system can take spectacular photos in any kind of light.

ONEPLUS 8 PRO

From £800, oneplus.com

A simply jawdropping handset that delivers across the board. It is, simply put, the best phone on the market for those shopping for a premium Android handset.

iPHONE SE (2020)

From £420, apple.com

Apple’s iPhone SE (2020) handset has taken this year by storm, the hot new handset winning acclaim worldwide with its balance of features, quality and performance for a very attractive price.

SAMSUNG GALAXY S20 ULTRA

From £1,199, samsung.com

Samsung has really gone to town here, from the 100x digital zoom on the rear camera to the huge 6.9-inch AMOLED display around the front. It’s the priciest of the S20 models, and it shows.

CHEAP SMARTPHONES

Find the lowest prices at: t3.com/bestcheapphone

iPHONE SE (2020)

From £420, apple.com

A near-flagship iPhone experience for a fraction of the cost. The SE is under half the cost of the iPhone 11 Pro, and for that reason it demands attention from any prospective phone upgrader.

ONEPLUS NORD

From £379, oneplus.com

A fantastic midranger, with a Snapdragon 765G processor, at least 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and 5G. That’s not to mention the sharp, bright 6.44-inch AMOLED display.

SAMSUNG GALAXY S20 FE

From £699, samsung.com

The best core S20 functionality, along with 5G, but at a more affordable price point, this is actually nothing like a budget handset, as it is still loaded with premium hardware and features.

MOTO G8 POWER

From £239, motorola.com

If you’re looking for a phone that gives you a lot of bang for your buck then you simply can’t go wrong with the Moto G8 Power. The big selling point here is that huge 5,000mAh (threeday!) battery.

SMARTWATCHES

APPLE WATCH SERIES 6

From £379, apple.com

Series 6 adds a pulse oxygen sensor to its health systems, makes its always-on display 2.5 times brighter, steps up to the new S6 CPU, and throws in all the new features of watchOS 7.

SAMSUNG GALAXY WATCH ACTIVE2

From £269, samsung.com

Sleek and powerful, this is the best smartwatch for Android users. The screen and design are on par with the Apple Watch, while a collection of new watch faces give it a modern edge.

SAMSUNG GALAXY WATCH 3

From £399, samsung.com

The Galaxy Watch 3 comes in two sizes, and with a very good battery life. It’s the innovative rotating bezel that is the star here, though, as it is, without doubt, the best way to control a smartwatch.

APPLE WATCH SE

From £269, apple.com

Despite being the ‘affordable’ smartwatch from Apple, the SE is fast and comfortable with a clear screen (no always-on display though) and excellent health and fitness features.

HYBRID SMARTWATCHES

WITHINGS MOVE ECG

£129, withings.com

Think a pricey Apple Watch is needed to take an ECG reading of your heart? This can do that, plus activity tracking and sleep monitoring, with a 12-month battery life, for a really low price.

MONDAINE HELVETICA 1

£195, mondaine.com

Mondaine is most famous for producing watches which resemble its classic Swiss Railways clock, but the Helvetica range is different. It includes activity and sleep tracking.
