Social media. Banking. Dating. Gaming. Running a business. Streaming music or watching movies. Video chatting with foreign friends. Writing that last minute work meeting agenda.
It’s all there at your fingertips with a smartphone, and people are glued to theirs the vast majority of every day.
Most of us are hopelessly devoted to one smartphone brand that we are familiar with, we know how to navigate, and that we find reliable. We upgrade to the brand’s newest model when it’s released, and shout from the rooftops about how we couldn’t live without it.
But, what else is out there? You might be surprised by the sheer number of smartphones on the worldwide market - some so little-known you may never have heard of them.
This week we break down for you the mobile giants (and their lesser-known counterparts), and what makes them unique.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you will probably be extremely familiar with Steve Jobs’ smartphone brainchild, the Apple iPhone.
With each new and improved generation of iPhone - and the hype that surrounds it - the brand continues to pit itself ahead of the smartphone pack, both in style and in functionality.
With the newest model, the futuristic iPhone X, setting industry records, we can only imagine what’s next for the tour de force.

The closest competitor to the popularity of the iPhone, Samsung’s Galaxy range of smartphones continues to reinvent itself year after year. Intelligent and hard working, Samsung recently welcomed its newest creation into the fold - the Samsung Galaxy S9.
EFM has recently released our S9 and S9 Plus Case Armour range, which is the perfect accompaniment to your brand new device.
You may be familiar with Lenovo in terms of their mark in the laptop computer sphere, but they are also a force to be reckoned with in smartphones as well. A subsidiary of Motorola, Lenovo puts large emphasis on developing their phone range into bigger, better contenders for the top prize.
Lenovo also offer a smartphone feature that others don’t - phone customisation to suit the users own individual needs. Pretty clever, hey?
Cracking the list of the top ten smartphone manufacturers in the world, ZTE is a name you may not know - but should.
The Chinese brand is big business in the world of telecom services and tablets, and tailors their smartphone range to appeal to those who can’t necessarily afford the big name brands, but still desire premium smartphone services.
A brand you probably already have an item of in your house in the form of whitegoods or entertainment systems, LG’s simple but effective “life’s good” slogan also extends to their smartphone selection.
Releasing ‘series’ of iPhones, much in the vein of the Samsung Galaxy brand, LG isn’t a brand to sneeze at. After all, it sells upwards of 60 million smartphones a year worldwide!
The name Huawei may ring a bell due to their association with broadband internet and modems, but they are a serious up and comer in the ever-growing Chinese smartphone boom as well.
Huawei take the development of each and every phone release extremely seriously. In fact, their research and development department has over 75,000 people working hard to beat the competition. Stay tuned, this brand will explode!
Choosing a smartphone from the litany of options out there can be tricky business, but you can rest assured that there is a brand out there to suit your own individual needs, budget and style.
