Back to School 2014: The 11 best smartphones

If you're in the market for a new handset to accompany you on campus this fall, your timing's just right. You couldn't ask for a better selection of choices, and plenty of the phones in the gallery below are downright budget-friendly. That said, if you can hold off for a bit, you might want to see what Apple and Samsung have in store -- both companies are expected to announce new smartphones within the next month. Note that we've listed devices based on their unlocked and contract-free prices, though you'll pay less up front if you sign up with a carrier. Oh, and don't forget to check out the rest of our Back To School guide for more product picks.

Winner: congratulations to Nick N. of Port Coquitlam, BC.
