Brand New Mobile Phones
Time to buy a brand new mobile phone. Wohooooo!
Who doesn't love the excitement of buying a brand new mobile phone? It's one of those new purchases that nearly everyone get's excited about. Even if you are buying it as a gift for someone else, it's still fun right? Taking the time to choose the best new make and model phone with the features you enjoy best. Below we list some of the most exciting and most popular of the latest phone models, along with a few different places we think offer great prices and service. We have reviewed and listed the larger screen models here, obviously the smaller screen versions are still available and will be cheaper.
Apple iPhone XR
Money no object or just can't resist the latest new iPhone? Then this one is probably the one for you. The iPhone XR comes with a 6.1-inch liquid retina HD display, a 12MP camera and the choice of 64GB, 256GB or 512GB internal storage. You can also choose your own colour from red, yellow, white, coral, black and blue. Let's face it, these phones even though in our opinion are super over priced, are the must have phone for a very large percentage of the world's population.
There is no doubting the quality and ground breaking features that Apple strives to include in it's products. One thing to bear in mind though, the SMN team have noticed just how many people with iPhones have cracked screens, so don't forget to think about a case to protect it. They are not a cheap mobile phone to repair.
Samsung Galaxy S9 + / Plus
Now we love Samsung products in general. Great quality, often more reasonable prices than Apple, and super high end features. The Samsung Galaxy S9+ model includes a 6.2 inch widescreen quad HD display, the main camera is 12MP with dual aperture, and it has dual rear cameras, along with 960 fps super slow motion and ‘Intelligent Scan’ facial recognition for extra security. It is available in Midnight Black, Coral Blue and Lilac Purple colours.
It has the Android Oreo 8.0 as it's operating system. We always love the quality of the screens on Samsung products, they offer generally sharp, crisp, clear bright images. The phone is really a great all rounder with top of the range, quality features. This model is actually currently more pricey than the new iPhone XR, but in our opinion it's one of the best phones available right now, plus err... well it's not an Apple.
Google Pixel 3 XL
Google we all use it. It's the search engine of choice, but is it the mobile phone of choice? Well the Pixel 3 is certainly a pretty great phone. Just to try and outdo the Apple and Samsung phones the Pixel 3 XL has a 6.3 inch quad HD+ display. It also has a 12MP camera and is available with either 64GB or 128GB internal storage. Colour choices are Clearly White, Just Black and Not Pink, which although isn't pink, it's pretty close to it. Again to go one better it uses the very latest Android Pie 9.0 as it's OS.
The rear of the phone actually has a lovely looking glass finish to it, which looks great. The Pixel 3 has very obviously improved on its predecessor the Pixel 2 and although the latest Android OS is nice to have, in our opinion the Samsung S9 Plus, still edges it. But if you fancy a change from the usual top players but still want a brand you can trust the Google Pixel 3 XL could be the one for you. It's similar in price than the other two as well.

Motorola G6 Play
Motorola might be a brand that you haven't considered much before. But we at SMN like their mobile phones a lot. A few of us have had previous versions in the Moto G model range and really like the fact their phones tend to have minimal bloatware. For those of you not in the know, that's extra software that takes up extra space on the phone that we're talking about. Now this particular phone is roughly only a fifth of the cost of the flagship brands phones, so that's a massive saving.
Although obviously this phone has some less fancy features, it's still a fast, excellent mobile phone, at a small fraction of the cost of the top end brands. The G6 Play has a 5.7 inch Max Vision screen as well as an impressive 13MP camera and 32Gb of internal storage. It's battery can last up to a whopping 32 hours too. At SMN we are all about saving you money on your bills, that's why we totally love this phone. It really is marvelous value.
