10 best mobile phones in the world today

The best smartphones 2014: what phone is best for you?

iPhone 6 Plus

5. iPhone 6 Plus

While not quite as impressive as the smaller version, the first Apple phablet is jam-packed with things to love.

The Plus takes all the best bits of the iPhone 6 - design, beautiful UI, strong camera performance - and improves upon them by packing an even better camera, a Full HD screen and much larger battery.

The drawbacks are few, but pivotal: it's a little harder to hold in one hand thanks to being a little too wide, plus it's a lot more expensive. But with the same internal power, great graphical performance and access to Apple's amazing media / app library, this tablet-phone hybrid is perfect for those that can't decide between the two formats.

Quick verdict

While the ergonomics of this phone aren't brilliant, there's another reason it's below the LG G3 and others: the price. It's very, very expensive and you'll have to really be up for a phone of this calibre, and really want the extra space to merit a purchase.

Of course, if you're an Apple fan and want a bigger iPhone, then you should shut your laptop or throw down your tablet immediately and run down to buy one of these (providing you can afford it, of course). It's a great phone made larger, and improved along the way too.
