It's always been difficult to decide which phone you should buy. After all, a phone is like an extension of you and what you represent. You want it to be on-trend, in style and popular.

Since the early 1980s, mobile phones have become like unofficial fashion accessories in our daily lives, and so device manufacturers and even fashion designers have put forth many beautiful handsets to whet our demanding appetite.

You've probably wanted to own them all, too. Money is a problem for many however, so it's safe to assume you weren't able to buy even a fraction of the prettiest phones ever released (and many of them have since likely slipped your mind).

Well, in an attempt to remind you of all the mobile phones you've always wanted to buy, sort of like all those Nike trainers or Chanel purses you've always wanted to get, we've rounded up a list of the 30 of the best looking and most fashionable phones.

There might also be one or two in there you wouldn't be seen dead with, but they seemed like a good idea at the time.

Some are cool and popular handsets from the last three decades, while others are lesser-known-yet-fancy gadgets from elite fashion houses. But they're all (or once were) considered hot.

Let us know in the comments if there are any other phones worth including.
