10. LG Optimus 3D

Of the many 3D phones that have been available very early, LG Optimus 3D has taken the spotlight, even earlier than HTC or Motorola, which was announced and sold, February 2011. It has even been a surprise in the mobile world that this manufacturer would be one of the pioneers of this new technology. It carries a dual 5 megapixel camera to capture 3D videos, which can record 1080p at 30 frames per second, and 720p stereoscopic.

9. Samsung Epic 4G

A Samsung phone with a full side-sliding QWERTY keypad, a front facing and back camera, plus a Super AMOLED display is nothing but Epic. The combination of the specs is what makes the Samsung Epic 4G a very promising phone for Sprint customers. Some like it and others do not because of the stout and curvy corners making it more of a soap phone than a Candybar slider. The screen’s image quality may even go head to head with Apple’s iPhone retina display, due to the crispness of images displayed via Super AMOLED, a technology that Samsung is very proud of creating.

8. HTC Desire

Claimed as a looker close to the Google Nexus One, the HTC Desire has feature that should be desired by HTC lovers and Android enthusiasts alike. One of the most distinguishable features it has is the number of hardware buttons available for accessibility of options, functions, and other operations, aside from the touch screen buttons it has on the main menu, making it very friendly for those who like the feel of sinking keypads every time they want to do something special on their phones. The audio on the phone is very promising when it comes to playing sounds and listening to phone calls, a must for audiophiles and for people who are very critical of voice quality. Despite the screen only being AMOLED, it still shows a performance worth noting.

7. HTC Droid Incredible

The combination of some specs such as a 1GHz processor, an 8GB internal storage, 748MB ROM, an 8-megapixel camera, and an AMOLED screen is considered something incredible by many HTC Droid lovers out there. The experience becomes more amazing with the combination of Android 2.1 Éclair and HTC Sense to navigate and go through screen after screen, a perfect match to beat with its competition. Even though the phone only has AMOLED for its visual display, the resolution of 480×800 helps the images become a lot sharper and clearer than any of its contenders. It’s better than Droid, or even the Nexus One, being very good on every aspect in its generation. You can have it updated to 2.2 if you need a more pumping, incredible, mobile phone experience.

6. Google Nexus S

It should be expected at least that a Google Android phone would have the Gingerbread for its OS, and it does with Google Nexus S.

It even has NFC for powerful device integration such as speakers, earphones, and even third party services like eWallets for online credit cards, ePasses on trains, and more. Music performance is tolerable standard and visual quality is just sharp and crisp due to that Super AMOLED addition.

The power of 2 leveled processors makes this HTC device as fast as its name acclaims.

Just imagine a mobile phone with the capability of playing PSP Games, and not just getting your satisfaction met with emulators and spending time in games, old school. The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play has a slide keypad, nope, not QWERTY, but a nice d-pad, gaming buttons, and even 2 small trackpads acting as analog sticks for the PSP. There is no lagging expected on this baby, since it has a powerful processor, with an amazing GPU to boot, plus even enhancing the gaming experience with an Android Gingerbread. This has also been utilized for that standard everyday use, such as making calls, or downloading apps, and browsing the internet.

3. Motorola Atrix 4G

If you think that your Motorola Atrix 4G is just a powerful smartphone, think again. Due to its fast dual core 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor, and 1GB of RAM, your handheld device may even become a portable laptop, desktop, set top box, or even your remote control. This power phone from Motorola is noted to be one of the hottest phones in the US due to its availability and sale in stores, number of accessories and gadgets supported, and of course, the visual capability multiplied by the ability of its inner specs to speed up every process, hyperdrive. And even though customers may get it on 2.2 Froyo, there have been OTA updates to have it hyped up into 2.3 Gingerbread, providing more to people who are looking for more.

2. Motorola Droid Bionic

The Motorola Droid Bionic is one of the most promising phones coming to the US, carrying itself a label that all mobile phone manufacturers should be going to the direction where this phone is going to: growth, excellence, and progression. The processor may be as same as the Atrix 4G, but wait till you notice the difference in its back operation memory. It has a 512MB RAM, but it holsters a huge 2GB ROM, more than enough space to make that Dual-core 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor kick the speed to the highest. Already coming with an Android Gingerbread, you no longer need to line up for an OS upgrade. Despite of the size, the phone is definitely lighter than its predecessor, the Droid 2. The visuals are stunning despite not being AMOLED.

0110 e1312856658311 10 Best Android Cell Phones in 2011

Labeled by many reviews, blogs, and cellphone enthusiasts as the “World’s most powerful phone to date”, the Samsung Galaxy SII has already sold more than 3 million units in less than 3 months since it was released back in April 28, beginning in South Korea. It has toppled everything else on the list due to its souped up specs that no other mobile phone has obtained before. The Dual-core 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor is now being developed by HTC, the Mali-400MP GPU is a unique offering from others that have GeForce or Adreno, and the memory is also unquestionable. Who would never know this side of Galaxy especially that this is the first phone to have a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display that cannot be matched by any other competitor? Even the camera is on the lead, with rear 8 megapixels as a standard from other phones, but having an upped 2 megapixel camera at the front. Performance and visual quality just cannot be compared from any other at this time, except when other mobile phone companies go to the stretch to overpower the device. It also comes with Android Gingerbread to sugarcoat everything amazing.
