Windows Phone is the third choice of mobile operating system behind iOS/iPhone and Android. It's Microsoft's mobile version of Windows featuring colourful live tiles on the Start Screen.The current version is Windows Phone 8.1 but there's another version here in the form of Windows 10 (not Windows Phone 10). Only certain models will be upgradeable, so make sure you choose carefully if you don't want to be stuck on an older version.


Windows Phone 8.1 has lots of decent features including the personal assistant Cortana. The vast majority of handsets are now branded as Microsoft Lumia, as Nokia is no longer owned by Microsoft. The software giant is really the only Windows Phone device maker and makes up our entire list but even then its future is somewhat up in the air. Also see: Best sounding phone 2016.

Windows 10 adds features such as Continuum meaning you can use the phone on a larger display with a PC-like experience including the ability to control it with a mouse an keyboard. Key to this are Universal Apps which are app which work the same across any Windows device - PC, laptop, tablet or phone.

There are some good phones available and they are typically cheaper than Android rivals, although the budget phone market has changed a lot even in the last year. See also. Best budget smartphones 2016 .

Performance of Windows Phones are generally good and you'll typically get a good screen and reasonable cameras too. However, the OS is still behind rivals on apps so make sure you can get everything you need - especially for third party hardware like multi-room speakers and the like - before taking the plunge.
