10. HTC One M9
HTC has sat comfortably at the top of our charts for the last couple of years, and while it’s not quite managed it in 2015, the M9 is still a phone with the best build quality out there.
9. Nexus 5X
Fans of Google’s Nexus devices will be happy to know that Google has decided to bring back a Nexus handset with a smaller screen size.
8. Sony Xperia Z5
The paint’s barely dried before a new sony mobile is shooting onto shop shelves – but we don’t mind when they offer fancy new features.
7. Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge has all the power and features of the table-topping S6, but includes a little extra, thanks to the curved edges on its sides.
6. Samsung Galaxy Note 5
Samsung’s latest plus-sized handset continues the positive momentum that the company started with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Ed
5. Apple iPhone 6S Plus
Apple’s second big screen phone is another stunner. On one hand, this is just a larger iPhone 6S. That’s no bad thing, as that phone is one of the best around at the moment. But this second Apple phablet has a number of elements that make it a great phone in its own right.
4. LG G4
LG has tried to focus on what everyone actually wants out of a smartphone, a great looking design, colour rich display and the great camera for photos – but it doesn’t quite deliver as impressively as we’d hoped.
3. Nexus 6P
Google’s Nexus platform has always been about partnering with different manufacturers to deliver the best possible handset for the time, and for the Nexus 6P, Huawei has stepped up to the plate.
2. iPhone 6S
What can you say about any new iPhone? Most people are already decided about whether they’re going to buy the new model before it’s even announced – but that hasn’t stopped us giving it a thoroughly good going over.
1. Samsung Galaxy S6
While last year’s Galaxy S5 was nothing special, this year Samsung’s started from the ground up to make a truly wonderful smartphone.
