2. HTC EVO 4G
Spec-for-spec, the HTC EVO 4G is still one of the most technologically advanced smartphones available to consumers, and as showpiece Android devices go, it ranks with the best. It has a 4.3-inch, 480 x 800 pixel display, 1-Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, an 8-megapixel camera capable of 720p HD video capture, HDMI output, Android 2.2 with HTC Sense and integrated 4G wireless.
The EVO 4G's big distinction -- and a feather in the cap of carrier Sprint -- is that it can call itself the first 4G smartphone widely available to U.S. consumers. Not too shabby, HTC.
