Top 5 T-Mobile UK Phones Heading

We’re now close to covering all of the U.K.’s major carriers with our weekly top 5 phones roundups: we’ve already done O2, Vodafone and Orange, and this week we’re taking a look at T-Mobile. These roundups are designed to help you keep track of the most exciting handset releases, and quickly see the best devices available today. So, without further ado, here’s the top 5 phones currently available on T-Mobile.


#1. Samsung Galaxy S II

Samsung’s impressive Galaxy S II handset has now been at the forefront of all four of our roundups so far. Why? Because it’s the best handset currently available in the U.K. Whether or not you’re a fan of Google’s Android operating system, the Galaxy S II just cannot be beaten. That dual-core 1.2GHz processor blows its competition out of the water, while its 8-megapixel camera is one of the best available on a smartphone. It also sports a stunning 4.25-inch Super AMOLED display, 1GB of RAM, and Samsung’s latest TouchWiz UI.

#2. HTC Sensation

If you want a HTC device for that awesome HTC Sense UI, there’s nothing better than the HTC Sensation. Running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, the Sensation is rocking a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 768MB of RAM, and up to 32GB of storage via microSD. For taking snaps, the Sensation sports an 8-megapixel camera on the back, capable of 1080p video recording, and a VGA camera on the front.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc

#3. Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc

If the Galaxy S II and the HTC Sensation are a little out of your price range, then the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc may be the best device for you. It runs the same Android Gingerbread OS powered by a 1GHz processor, a fancy 4.2-inch display, and an awesome 8.1-megapixel camera — the best camera in our roundup.

#4. HTC Desire HD

It’s not quite as good as the Sensation, but the HTC Desire HD is still a pretty awesome smartphone — and it’s cheaper. Like the Sensation it sports an 8-megapixel camera, though it will only shoot video in 720p — not 1080p. It has a snappy 1GHz processor powering the Android Froyo OS, a 4.3-inch display, and up to 32GB of storage via microSD.

#5. Apple iPhone 4

Nearly 15 months since its launch, you still can’t make a list of the top 5 phones without including Apple’s iPhone 4. Like Samsung’s Galaxy S II, it has featured in all four of our roundups so far, and with good reason: It features Apple’s awesome 1GHz A4 processor, its stunning Retina display, a 5-megapixel camera with auto-focus and 720p video recording, and that impressive iOS operating system — home to a world of half a million apps.

So that concludes our roundup up for T-Mobile. It’s a shame that RIM’s latest BlackBerry Bold didn’t quite make it into the list, but while it may be a very good phone, and RIM’s best BlackBerry yet, it still doesn’t compare to the devices above in my opinion.

We’re sure the roundup will change a little with the release of the HTC Titan, the HTC Sensation XE, and Apple’s much anticipated iPhone 5, but for now, what’s your favorite device?
