Xiaomi

The Beijing based firm offer a range of attractive and sophisticated phones but the Xiaomi Mi4 is the one that grabs the most attention. With a 5-inch, 1080p screen and a 13-megapixel camera this is a serious bit of kit. The 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor and the device’s 3GB of RAM make this a great smartphone for most regular users but the best thing about it is the design. It’s part iPhone and part Samsung Galaxy S4 so it’s attracting attention from the big UK mobile phone networks.

MeizuMeizu

This is another Chinese mobile phone company with aspirations to make an impact in the European market. The MX4 is their top selling mobile. This one comes with a 5.3-inch display, a Octa-core MediaTek MT6595 processor and 2GB of RAM. This is an attractive premium smartphone but perhaps its design is not as impressive as the Xiaomi.

Lenovo

The Chinese technology firm is probably best known for its range of laptops and desktop PCs, but they also make smartphones. The top of their range Vibe Z2 Pro is the one to look. With a 6-inch display this is the biggest of the phones reviewed here but is it the best? There’s 3GB of RAM and a Quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor runs the show so it’s on par with the Xiaomi.
