Best touchscreen smartphones

Get your hands on some of the most impressive touchscreen smartphones on the market

Believe it or not, the first touchscreen phone, the IBM Simon, appeared in 1992. Weighing in at just over a pound, with no colour screen or multi-touch functionality, it bears little resemblance to today’s touchscreen smartphones – though it was cutting edge in its day.

Today’s touchscreen phones boast capabilities that the creators of IBM Simon could only dream of. Pinch and zoom, iPhone’s 3D touch, and long press on Android make it easier to quickly access and use your favourite apps. Here are a few of the most impressive touchscreen smartphones.
