Mobile phone owners who are thinking of recycling their handset have been advised to consider investing in a Samsung Galaxy S.
According to Which? Mobile, the device offers many similar features to the iPhone but at a lower cost.
As a result, it believes it could be a good option for those who are seeking a slightly cheaper alternative to Apple's popular handset.
Which? Mobile singled out a number of the Galaxy S's features for attention, including its mp3 player, GPS facility, video recording function and camera.
Prospective owners of the device were also advised that they can use the Android Market to access a "wealth" of apps.
"It's a high-end handset that looks and feels very similar to the iPhone, with a huge four-inch touchscreen display," it commented.
Which? Mobile went on to commend the Samsung Wave, which it described as a "great choice" for those who are keen to buy a budget smartphone.
While the consumer group said its app store is relatively bare in comparison to those for other models, it stated that the Wave is "smooth and intuitive".
The organisation went on to note that Samsung offers a much more diverse range of products than other manufacturers that focus on Android handsets.
Which? Mobile added that the reputation of the company in the high-end smartphone sector is "arguably stronger" now than it has ever been since it began producing mobile phones 24 years ago.
"Samsung has successfully ridden the smartphone wave over the last couple of years," it observed.
This comes after Samsung said it expects the number of application downloads from its app store - Samsung Apps - to exceed 50 million this month.
The organisation credited its Wave series with helping to boost the popularity of the store, which was launched in September last year.
