new phones coming out

2014 has already been a crazy year for smartphone buyers, with tech firms releasing everything from fitness-focused handsets with heart-rate monitors, to NSA-busting spy phones.
While this sounds great, the wealth of innovative releases have made it difficult for many buyers to know what smartphone's best for them and what's on the horizon.

Here to help we've taken a thorough look through all the latest handsets unveiled this year, cross-referenced them against the rumoured handsets due for release this year, and put together our list of the top 10 smartphones you should be saving your cash or upgrade for.

So don't rush off to put in your BYOD request or visit your mobile operator just yet, it might be that the perfect phone for you is coming out in the next few months.

10. The Lumia 530
Nokia Lumia 530 with Windows Phone 8.1While the eyes of many C-level executives and people with money to burn may be fixed on Microsoft's flagship Lumia 930, buyers on a budget would be foolish to ignore the firm's recently unveiled Lumia 530 smartphone.

As the first ever Windows Phone 8.1 handset to cost less than €100, the Lumia has the potential to be one of the best affordable smartphones this year. This is largely thanks to the inherent business perks of Windows Phone 8.1.

Coming loaded with all the productivity services seen on previous Windows Phone versions, including Office 365, Outlook, Lync and OneDrive, as well as several advanced security features such as mobile device-management (MDM) support, Windows Phone 8.1 is one of the most enterprise-friendly operating systems currently available.

Add to this the Lumia 530's above-average technical specs, for its price band, which include a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor and 4in full wide video graphics array (FWVGA) 854x480, 246ppi display, and we can't help but get excited about Microsoft's latest budget handset.

Hopefully the Lumia 530 will make good on its opening promise come its release in August.
9. Amazon Fire PhoneAmazon Fire Phone in hand press shotThere have long been rumours that Amazon was going to enter the smartphone market, although for several years it has stuck resolute to its Kindle and Kindle Fire tablets as its sole hardware offerings. This has all change now, though, with its new Fire Phone.

While the Fire Phone has a fairly unassuming design, under its rubber frame it is full of innovations, featuring Amazon's custom Dynamic Perspective and Firefly technologies.

Dynamic Display is custom screen technology that aims to offer glasses free 3D viewing experiences using the Fire Phone's four front cameras.
Firefly is an information service that lets Fire Phone owners use the phone's camera and microphone to pull data from Amazon's database on a number of things including books, DVDs, phone numbers, QR codes, CDs, URLS, barcodes and business cards.
