HTC_Diamond2_01

Taiwanese manufacturer HTC has been all but flooding the market with a rich variety of Windows Mobile smartphones these last couple of years, either under its own name or branded versions for various UK networks. The Touch Diamond 2 is smaller and more pocket-friendly than the iPhone, and its only slightly smaller 3.2in screen is only one-touch, but it does have a handy zoom bar, which is great for viewing pics and web browsing. It uses HTC's nifty TouchFlo 3D interface, syncs neatly with Windows, has a 5Mp camera – which puts it firmly in front of the iPhone 3G S's 3Mp – lots of additional Windows Mobile apps to choose from and you can add up to 16GB of memory using Micro SD cards. Sleek, stylish and very capable, this is the one if you want it all.

LG Viewty Smart

LG Viewty Smart

The latest Viewty's look mirrors the iPhone's for simplicity, with just a single elongated button beneath its 3in touchscreen, which operates like the iPhone's home button. It also has an intuitive icon-based interface, which is very easy to find your way around. Yet its main selling point is the rather superb 8Mp camera, which puts the new iPhone's 3Mp effort to shame. It's also one of the very few smart phones that can replicate the iPhone screen's multi-touch capability, allowing you to pinch and zoom into pics and web pages. It can equal the iPhone's 32GB of memory too via Micro SD card, but you'll need to buy it separately. Beautifully stylish minimalism with an excellent 8Mp camera too.
