Best Android Smartphones
With Android spreading like wide fire, there's no shortage of phones to choose from. But which of these are the best competitors to the iPhone?
This phone is about as raw of a Android phone as you can get. It is the best of the Galaxy S series, plus on top of being awesome in every technical aspect, it has the least amount of crap, and the most possibilities. In fact, it's the only Android phone that you don't have to pay any fee to download apps.
It has a 4.3-inch WVGA screen, 8 megapixel camera, 1 GHz Snapdragon CPU, front-facing VGA camera, Micro HDMI port, 3G Wi-Fi hotspot, and 4G WiMAX capability
This phone was the one that changed it all for android and even though there are better android phones now, it remains the gold standard and as long as Google keeps selling it in one form or another.
This is the phone Motorola answered with to the HTC EVO which has a 4.3-inch screen, an 8 megapixel camera, a Micro HDMI port, and mobile hotspot functionality.
The original Droid was a huge hit, and was the top selling android phone up to 2010, so to keep the momentum going Motorola released the Droid 2, which is basically an updated version, better graphics, better screen.
The HTC Aria might be one of the best kept secrets of the Android world. It's basically an EVO mini, so for those of you that want something a little smaller with all the cool features, this is the phone for you. Only downside is its 600MHz processor plus is has all that unremovable AT&T crapware, but other than that its awesome.
When google didn't release the Nexus One for Verizon, HTC responded quickly with the Incredible. For its size and price its quite the phone. It has a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, 8GB of internal storage, 748MB of ROM, a microSD slot (with support for up to 32GB cards), an 8 megapixel camera with dual LED flash and autofocus, and a 480 x 800 AMOLED capacitive touchscreen.
LG hasn't brought much to the Android market yet, but the Ally is a pretty solid phone. It has one of the best keyboards on the market with great hardware as well. If your looking for a sturdy reliable phone, this will get the job done.
This phone is basically the Galazy X with a full integrated 53 button keyboard. It also features a 4-inch Super AMOLED screen, a zippy 1 GHz Samsung processor, and Sprint's 4G WiMAX service.
This phone is the better looking cousin to the Samsung Vibrant, except AT&T put a bunch of crapware on this phone that can't be removed.
