Issue 63 of Android Magazine is out now

Discover the top superphones for 2016, learn what the best custom fork of Android is and explore quadcore bargains


It’s an exciting time to buy a new Android. We’re spoiled for choice with the latest flagships from Samsung, LG, Sony and HTC, but smaller and lesser-known brands have also upped their game. Huawei, Xiaomi and their ilk are all releasing their latest and greatest phones with feature sets that can rival the big boys. Which one will you go for? Our in-depth guide to the latest superphones will help you to make up your mind.

And then there’s the question of which version of Android it runs and which one you’ll put on it. Our expert guides to Android forks and custom ROMs explain what your phone is running and what you can flash onto it to get the exact flavour of Android you want, whether that’s plain-vanilla or something more exotic.

The latest phone releases also mean that some older models are dropping in price. Check out our group test of quadcore phones if you’re looking for a lower-specced bargain.

There’s all this and much more in the latest issue of Android, available now from all good newsagents. Can’t get your hands on it where you are? Order a print copy from our online store, or download a digital version instantly now.
