As with any 6-inch phone, the Asus Zenfone 6 comes into some slight handling problems thanks to its size. We imagine many of you would be better off with a Zenfone 5. However, if it's priced right in the UK this will be easily the cheapest 6-inch phone from a known brand.

The Asus Zenfone 5 is a low-cost Android phone with a large screen. It may not be all that phones like the Samsung Galaxy S4 are, but it certainly seems to get you a lot for your money. UK prices for the Zenfone 5 haven't yet been announced, but as it's set to sell for $200 without a contract in the US, this should prove to be one of the cheapest ways to get a 5-inch screen phone.

Once you get your hands on the Asus Zenfone 4, it's pretty clear that this is a budget phone. However, if it sells for the right price in the UK, this could become one of the most capable ultra-budget phones around thanks to its Intel Atom processor. However, if it gets anywhere near £100, the existence of far more capable phones like the Motorola Moto G could sink it.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

PowerVR SGX544: OpenGL ES 2.0 compatible with 4 pixel and 2 vertex shaders

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).

Z2580: Soc with integrated dual core Atom processor clocked at 1.3 - 2 GHz (short bursts), a PowerVR SGX 544MP2 based GPU clocked at 400 MHz and a dual channel LPDDR2 memory controller.
