The last month has not seen much change in our top 10 list. The Samsung Galaxy A3 and A5 2017 Edition models have arrived and the A5 has made its way into the top 10 already.
What has happened is a whole load of device announcements at the end of February at Mobile World Congress from BlackBerry, LG, Moto, Sony and more! (Read the roundup)
As the new devices start shipping over the next 4-12 weeks the top 10 list will see some radical changes as the this years crop of current desirable handsets make their way into users hands.
Which will be met with most demand?!
Rises in the cost of components used to make smartphones and other technology is about to start having a big effect on the price you and I have to pay for new gadgets, including smartphones.
All devices will be rising in price over the coming months, but this will be felt most in the more premium handsets that many of us desire, so getting value from phones is going to become even more important.
Whilst flagship phones don’t really come in under £500 now, there are plenty of exceptional phones available for the money and £250 today can get you some superb pieces of kit, the Honor 6X, and WileyfoX Swfit 2 Plus are just 2 examples.
So here is our top 10 list for March:

10. Priv by BlackBerry
Surprisingly for some, this was one of our biggest sellers going into February, but it has now been discontinued, meaning that despite the great hardware for the price, getting hold of one now is going to be difficult.
Thankfully BlackBerry have a consolation in their new device the KEYone launched at MWC and available here.
The media would let you believe that the physical keyboard is dead on smartphones but there seems to be a mini revival in this physical form.
The Priv by BlackBerry was never going to appeal to all, but even those who were not taken by it I think can appreciate what it offered to some users.
Final sales of this device came in at £336 inclusive of VAT. That is a lot of phone for the money. During this time security updates and performance improvements came to the device regularly and will continue to do so.
An exclusive DTEK by BlackBerry warning system app, provides you with the power of privacy and to monitor the security of your device.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM keeps things ticking along nicely and with an internally fixed 3410mAh battery a full days work away from power is more than possible.
A larger 5.44-inch QHD (2560×1440) dual-curved AMOLED display with deep and rich colours makes for a great viewing experience, particularly media such as video and images.
The rear mounted 18 megapixel camera with Schneider-Kreuznach certified camera optics captures stunning photos which can be stored on the internal 32GB of memory, and if you need more space you have the microSD card slot too.
