Check out our brand new best phones guides!

There's been a flurry of carrier-themed guides for best phones crossing the front page of Android Central lately. We wanted to round them all up for you here and give a bit of insight to our thinking when putting them together. Windows Phone makes an appearance on a few lists, and there's a good chance of more finding their way onto these round-ups over time.

Each one of our guides runs through the best phones on any given carrier, and stacks up all of the relevant information for each. Rather than a straight spec comparison, these tables condense opinions from our in-depth reviews and those of others around the web. Handy links are available to dive into the specs and buy each phone from their respective online store.

All of these are intended to be living articles. No, that does not mean we're constructing pixelly word golems to maraud cyberspace. (We wish.) It means they'll be updated to keep up with the times, and ensure that anybody looking for help will get the best information possible. The goal here is to provide a highly glanceable, highly relevant guide no matter your purchasing situation.

We're all ears when it comes to corrections, additions, and new article ideas. You can hit us up on Windows Central's various social channels, or you can ping me directly on Twitter. Derek Kessler has been putting together the awesome design on these, so give the guy a high five (or nag him if anything looks borked).

What do you guys think so far? Anything you'd change? There's a lot more of this kind of stuff on the way, and we want to make sure to get it right.
