1. Moto X (2014)
Motorola’s new flagship is a fine creation. Wrapped in aluminium, it has a premium feel that escaped the original, plus it has been upgraded in almost every area. There’s a new Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB RAM and a bigger, sharper 1080p HD 5-inch display. It doesn’t feel like a big device though, with slim sides and a curved back, it feels great in the hand. Optional wood or leather backs can be added, the battery should be good for a day of hard use and the snapper has been upgraded to 13-megapixels.
2. Motorola Moto G
Slotting in below the new Moto X is the new Moto G, which brings some great improvement, while keeping the price really low. The display is now 5-inches, with a 720p resolution and a microSD card slot has been added under the removable rear case. On the back the camera has been bumped to 8meg and the battery should last at least the whole day. For under £150, we can’t complain at the lack of 4G, though it is still a disappointment.
3. Samsung Galaxy Note 4
A big upgrade on the Galaxy Note 3, the fourth iteration of the only phablet you should ups the specs with a quad-HD display that boasts a 500 PPI, 16MP rear snapper with a host of OIS features and 3.7 meg selfie cam with a flurry of wide angle modes. The S-Pen has been improved too, with better sensitivity and the ability to select multiple items at once.
