Top 5 Android Phones: Incredible, EVO 4G, Droid X

By Jamie Pert - Aug 5, 2010

In May, we did a ‘top 10’ Android phones article, but since then a few more fascinating and extremely good smartphones have been released. This article takes note of the few new Android phones, and informs you which ones are the best of the bunch.

#5. Samsung Vibrant – This phone brings a superb AMOLED display with brilliant multimedia features, but one of the major drawbacks about this phone is the lack of a flash for the camera. This alone would put most people off when mixed with a quite laggy interface that the phone also suffers with.

#4. Google Nexus One – Formally a joint number one entry, the Google Nexus One is still one of the prime contenders in the Android market. From it’s snazzy design, amazing AMOLED display and speedy and satisfying performance, it’s hard to gone wrong with. But it does have its own set of problems that prevent it from climbing to the top. Some network issues, an average multimedia player and less than perfect software keyboard are factors Google must take in to consideration when designing the next Nexus breed.

#3. HTC Droid Incredible – Formally sitting perfectly in the number one spot, the Droid Incredible lives up to its name in being just that. Infact, it is one of the most impressive overall phones on the market today, and has only recently been beaten by the newer phones that took the Incredible and made them better. We didn’t think it was possible. The only drawback with this phone is its boring media player, and even that is not enough to put anyone off wanting this suberb phone.

#2. Motorola Droid X – Even the name makes it sound cool. “So what phone do you have?” “I have a Droid X!” This phone benefits from superb multimedia playback, amazing network performance and an array of brilliant features. The interface can be sluggish at times though, and it does not come with Android OS 2.2 FroYo pre-installed.

#1. HTC EVO 4G – HTC continue to impress, and the EVO 4G is no surprise. With 4G connectivity, gorgeous 8MP camera, and a beautiful display packed with features, it’s hard to go wrong with this phone. The only drawback being that not everyone can yet experience its best feature — 4G coverage.
