  • 500MB - £36-a-month

Running Windows Phone 8, the Nokia Lumia 820 is powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz processor with 1GB of RAM, and there's 8GB of internal storage, plus a microSD card to add more.

As with the Lumia 820, the Lumia 920 will go on sale in the UK on Friday, 9 November. It wil cost £130 up-front on the lowest £36-a-month contract, dropping to £49 on the £41-a-month tariff and £19 on all other contracts.

The One XL is powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz processor with 1GB of RAM and there's 32GB of internal storage, although this is no microSD card slot to increase this further.

The HTC One XL is £149.99 on EE's £36-a-month contract, £49.99 on the £41-a-month and £29.99 on all other tariffs.

Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE

Galaxy S3

One of our favourite smartphones of the year, the 4.8in Galaxy S3 has an HD screen, can be upgraded to Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), and is powered by a quad-core 1.4GHz processor with 1GB of RAM.

EE is only selling the 16GB model for now, although it does come with a microSD card slot so the storage capacity can be increased by up to an extra 64GB.

The Galaxy S3 LTE costs £149.99 on EE's £36-a-month contract, £49.99 on the £41-a-month plan, and £29.99 on all other plans.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 LTE

Note 2

If the Galaxy S3 isn't big enough for you, then EE is also offering the 4G-ready Galaxy Note 2, with its 5.55in display and HD resolution of 720 x 1280.

To make good use of that huge screen, the Note 2 has an S-Pen stylus that can be used to interact with the phone, draw, and write on the screen.

Powered by a quad-core 1.6GHz processor and 2GB of RAM, the Note 2 is (on paper at least) one of the most powerful smartphones on sale today.

EE is offering the 16GB model only, although there is a microSD card slot, so you can increase this by up to 64GB if you have a card that big.

The Note 2 LTE will set you back £179.99 on EE's cheapest £36-a-month contract, £139.99 on the £41-a-month plan, £89.99 on the £46-a-month tariff, £39.99 if you pay £51-a-month and finally £29.99 on the most expensive £56-a-month deal.

With a 4in screen and resolution of 640 x 1136, the iPhone 5 is powered by Apple's dual-core A6 processor and 1GB of RAM.
