PC Advisor selects the Top 5 pay as you go smartphones for less than £250 available in the UK this month. We have looked right the way through our vast up-to-date selection of smartphone reviews and have picked our Top 5 smartphones based on what features you get for your money. 



Samsung Galaxy Pro


Although it has a very small display when compared to the likes of the Apple iPhone 4 and Samsung's own Galaxy S and Galaxy S II smartphones, the Galaxy Pro has reasonable specifications. It is powered by an 800MHz processor, has a hefty 512MB of RAM and 2GB of internal memory, and is equipped with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS.



BlackBerry Pearl 3G




The BlackBerry Pearl 3G is an excellent phone with some brilliant messaging, media and connectivity features. For us, however, the keyboard is a real drawback, especially since email and web address entry meant we routinely needed the full stop and @ signs, neither of which are default characters on the keypad.





Nokia X6



The Nokia X6 looks great, comes with tonnes of storage and has a decent onscreen keyboard. There's also a plethora of multimedia features and an excellent onboard camera. We're not too thrilled with the user interface, however, and using the X6 can be a frustrating experience.





HTC Wildfire S



The HTC Wildfire S boasts impressive build quality and the full suite of Android features. The small phone (59x101x12mm) feels great in hand with its smooth, rounded corners and solid build.







The Xperia X10 Mini clearly caught the fancy of our female colleagues who were completely at ease while dealing with the tiny phone. And the phone despite its diminutive size offered good performance across the board. So, maybe, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini is a special offering by Sony Ericsson for the female population looking for a "size-zero" touchscreen phone that is powered by a very capable Android OS.
