One of the best Android handsets on the planet today is the cumulative result of HTC's monumental efforts on the Android platform and is a natural successor to the Desire. With a 4-inch screen, improved battery and a whopping 8-megapixel camera with a dual-flash, it's HTC at its best.
HTC's popular Sensation gets super-sized with a massive 4.7-inch, an 8-Megapixel camera, 720p HD video recording capabilities with the normal Android slickness with the addition of HTC's Sense overlay. A hefty 16GB of storage and Beats headphones also made it excellent surroundings for your music.
The phone that thinks it's a computer, this sleek Android smartphone boasts the same dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor as Moto’s Xoom, 1GB of RAM and a four-inch, 960x540 screen. Despite that, it’s lighter than the iPhone 4 at 135g. That’s impressive, if not exceptional – witness the Samsung Galaxy S – but the USP that’s grabbed the world’s tech heads’ attention is its unprecedented versatility and potential to transform a product category.
The Razr returns sporting a KEVLAR backplate and Corning GORILLA glass on the front making it one of the toughest phones around. Running Android 2.3.5 the RAZR is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and has 1GB RAM for ultra-fast response and easy multi-tasking. With a 8MP snapper on the back and 1080p video recording you've got a phone that will truly rival the iPhone 4S both in looks and functionality.
