The Top 5 Android Phones
Now that Android has been confirmed as the most popular OS with phone users (having managed to beat Apple), here’s a rundown of the most popular Android-based mobiles:
Google’s Android 2.3 Gingerbread is one of the most talked about operating systems around today, and the system comes as standard on the Samsung Galaxy SII. With its Dual-Core Application Processor, 16GB memory and 4.3-inch WVGA Super AMOLED screen, the Galaxy SII is billed as being vivid, fast and slim, giving users an outstanding and unique media and communication experience.
HTC Desire HD
Taiwanese manufacturer HTC have been putting out some of the world’s favourite phones over the last couple of years, and the Desire HD is one of their best yet. With its 4.3-inch screen, virtual surround sound and super-fast Internet browsing, the Desire HD is a real entertainment machine. It also features HTC Sense, which enables you to locate your phone via the net if you lose it, whilst also allowing you to forward your calls to another number if you leave your mobile at home!
Google Nexus S
The tagline given to the Nexus S by its creator Google is “fast just got faster”. This Android seems to be all about speed, being run by the Gingerbread operating system, which is said to be Android’s fastest yet. Powered by a 1GHz Hummingbird processor and equipped with 16GB of internal memory, the Nexus S will have your laptop cowering in a corner and begging for mercy.
Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro
You may well have recently spotted people carrying around unfeasibly compact Android mobile phones with slide-out QWERTY keyboards. If you have, then there’s a good chance that you were looking at the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro, which packs an incredible range of features into a phone the size of a credit card. Those features include a 2.55-inch capacitive touchscreen and Sony Ericsson Timescape, which puts all your text, email and social media messages into one handy location.
Ever suffered the huge annoyance of losing a phone to water damage, or witnessed the horror of your favourite handset drowning in a mug of tea? If you’re a bit butter-fingered with your phone around water, then you should take a look at the Motorola Defy. This little Android gem has a rubber seal that protects the phone from any amount of water, sand or dust, and it has a screen made from scratch-proof Gorilla Glass.
