We all know just how fast technology moves these days, and if you're not careful you might just find that your latest purchase is out of date before you even leave the shop! Given that we now pay more than ever for our mobile phones, this is obviously something that we'd all like to avoid if at all possible, so we have compiled this great list of the very newest phones of 2011 that we've put through thorough testing and fully recommend that you give strong consideration to buying...
LG Optimus 3D
It's not surprising that given the increase in popularity of all things 3D in the last few years that we're now looking at the first generation of mobile phones. LG have beaten everyone else to the punch with their Optimus 3D which is available SIM free from £404.95 at The Carphone Warehouse. It's got all the features you'd expect from a top of the range smartphone, including Android Operating System and dual core processor, but these features and the huge 4.3 inch screen mean that you're going to need to charge it at least once a day which might put some people off.
Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo
Sony Ericsson's latest addition to the Xperia range, the Neo, offers one of the most impressive cameras we've ever seen on a mobile phone. Despite the fact that the chassis feels a little cheap, the HDMI output, 8MP camera, 720p video recording and wonderfully vibrant screen more than make up for it. Add to this the fact that you've got all the great features of Android contained within it, and the £280.95 SIM free cost with The Carphone Warehouse is a real steal!
