Mobile Choice was a long-running UK magazine covering reviews, news and opinions on mobile phones, tablets, apps and accessories. The first issue came out in November 1996, and it was published bi-monthly by Noble House Media,[1] which was based in London.[2] Mobile Choice celebrated its 200th issue in March 2013.

In April 2016, Mobile Choice was bought by Future plc[1][2] and in March 2017 the decision was made to cease publication of the magazine.

The 100-page magazine had a news section, in-depth independent reviews and features, how-to guides and each issue comes with a Buying Guide of over 150 phones, as well as an archive of past mobile phone reviews. The website is updated daily with mobile and tablet news and reviews.

The magazine's editor is Sunetra Chakravarti with regular contributions from Jack Courtez, Jay Jay, Christian Azolan, Zak Garner-Perkis. Previous editors have included Natasha Stokes and Huw Morgan - now head of internal communications at Telefónica Digital.
