When you have a device line-up that’s as diverse as Android’s there are going to be hits and there are going to be misses. Here we take a look at the duds, the flops, the epic fails – we bring you the worst Android phones of all time.


HTC enjoyed a meteoric rise with Android and manufactured some of the best smartphones of recent years. Its fall from grace has been spectacular. We examine what went wrong and take a look at how HTC might stage a comeback.

XDA-Developers has tracked no less than four Android 4.1-based custom ROMs in its forum threads and, while neither of these is yet fully functional and stable, you can’t possibly say no to all of them. That is if you want to taste some Jelly Bean goodness on your EVO 3D, of course.
