The LG GBB60PZGFB is an unusually tall freestanding fridge-freezer with a gloss metallic finish. It's frost-free with a practical interior layout, and good value too. But what really makes this model stand out is its exceptionally efficient and quiet linear compressor, which achieves an unprecedented A+++ energy rating, making it the best energy-saving fridge-freezer that we know.
The Sony Xperia XZ is Sony's flagship phone for 2016. Slim and sleek, the XZ is a premium-build device running Android M and featuring a fast Snapdragon 820 processor with plenty of memory. Photography is a key strength too, thanks to its 23 megapixel camera with laser autofocus.
Plusnet is a UK-based broadband and phone provider, offering either standard or fibre broadband internet, including phone calls. YouView TV and BT Sport Lite are also available to broadband customers. On 29th November 2016, LIFE Mobile customers joined the Plusnet family and became Plusnet Mobile customers.
The Huawei Nova is a top-rated mid-range phone. With a premium-design metal body, it has the look of a high-end handset but for half the price. Its top features are its 5-inch high resolution screen, fingerprint scanner, fast 8-core processor, and very long battery life.
The HTC One A9s is a top mid-range phone, with an attractive slimline all-metal build. The 5-inch HD screen looks good, and the phone takes good pictures with its HDR cameras. Performance from the 8-core processor is strong, and battery life is reasonable too. Priced for value, this is an excellent buy.
At S21, we've picked the 3 best washing machines of 2016 for between £300 and £400 in the UK.
You don't need to spend huge amounts of money to buy a decent smartphone. £200, or around £15 per month on Pay Monthly, will get you a good phone, provided you know what to look for. Make life easier on yourself and start with our pick of the best.
The PS4 Pro looks like a turbocharged version of the original PS4, and that's exactly what it is. The Pro has more powerful hardware and supports 4K games, HDR, faster frame rates and UHD video streaming.
The Google Pixel XL is a super-sized version of the Pixel, with a stunning 5.5 inch Quad HD screen. The phone runs Android Nougat 7 at lightning speed and has a great camera and good battery life. We can't get excited about Google's first attempt at styling a phone however, and the greedy pricing shoots the phone out of the water for the majority of users.
