Latest reviews and articles:
The LG 55UJ701V offers compelling value for money. A 55" HDR TV with premium looks for around £850 has to be worth considering, and the UJ701V is well featured too, with Freeview Play, Freesat compatibility and comprehensive Smart TV, including Netflix and Amazon. Viewing angles are particularly wide, making this a good choice for a family TV.
The ever-popular Samsung Galaxy J5 has been upgraded for 2017 with a full metal body, and a fingerprint sensor embedded in the home button. It's a smart, slim phone with a good-sized 5.2 inch AMOLED screen and fast performance from its 8-core Exynos processor. The new 13 megapixel front camera will be welcomed by selfie fans, and battery life remains strong. It's a good all-rounder, but we'd like to see the price fall.
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 LG 55SJ810V is a well-priced 55" HDR TV with premium looks. The comprehensive Smart TV system includes Freeview Play, Freesat HD, Netflix and Amazon. Viewing angles are particularly wide, making this a good choice for a family TV.
We rated last year's Huawei P9 Lite as one of the best phones you could buy for under £300. Guess what? The new P10 Lite is even better.
The Sony Xperia XA1 is a mid-range phone with premium styling. It's superslim and very narrow, with almost no bezels left or right of the screen. Equipped with 32GB of storage and a fast 8-core processor, it's not lacking in any department. But perhaps its top feature is its class-leading 23 megapixel camera.
The Samsung 55MU6100 gives you a big screen for little money - around £750 or less, which is extremely good value for a 55-inch TV. The MU6100 may be a budget TV, but it's a 4K model, HDR-compatible, with superb Smart TV. Watch out for the slow 50Hz refresh rate when watching sport, but otherwise consider this to be one of the great bargains of 2017.
The LG OLED55B7V is an outstanding buy. OLED display technology gives you the best possible picture quality, and the B7 is the most affordable OLED TV in LG's 2017 range. It's super-stylish too too, with its blade-thin screen. It has superior audio and excellent Smart TV. The only issue is the price, but we expect this to fall.
The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is a premium-spec version of the XZ, with a 4K HDR screen, a next-gen processor, enhanced camera, more memory and a bigger battery. It's a beauty for sure, and not over-priced, but may be too big for some users.
