We’ve just announced our best value mobile phone of 2014 at the Recombu Awards 2014 shindig in Central London! Here’s the winning smartphone, and the highly commended handsets that came close…
Best Value Phone 2014 winner: Motorola Moto G (2014)
Last year’s Moto G showed what Motorola could do in this area, but the new Moto G improved on the amazing original with an even better camera and a much-needed memory card slot. It really is now the best phone you can buy for under £150, and one of the best mobiles of 2014 full stop.
Best Value Phone 2014 highly commended: Huawei Ascend G6 4G/EE Kestrel
Huawei’s Ascend G6 4G, rebranded here in the UK as the EE Kestrel, was one of the surprises of the year. Its sharp, colourful screen and slick all-round experience makes it a great value mobile and the fact that it packs 4G for under £100 is just the icing on the awesomeness cake.
Best Value Phone 2014 highly commended: Nokia Lumia 635
Nokia – or Microsoft Devices, if you prefer – is always a dependable source of awesome budget blowers. The Lumia 635 is one of its best, packing swappable and gorgeously colourful covers, the excellent Nokia Camera app and full 4G.
