The Android Superphones of 2011 [Spreadsheet]
The year of the superphone has finally arrived. We’ve seen a lot of powerful phones come in this year from all the major manufacturers. These aren’t your run of the mill, entry-level handsets – no sir. These are dual-core, Gingerbread packing nerdware that boast immense screen sizes and blazing fast performance.
These are only for the most discerning Android lovers so if you need to ask how much, better skeedadle (we’re kidding of course, we love all Android fans equally). If you’ve been trying to wraparound your head which phone is best for you, we also have a few choice picks you might enjoy here.
Without any more hoopla, here’s the spreadsheet:
Lots of Features at a Great Price: HTC EVO 3D
I know this phone is not ideal for travelling due to being CDMA but you must admit, it packs a lot of stuff for a $199.99 contract with Sprint. You get HD video recording, a big and swanky 4.3-inch 3D screen, and a juicy 1730mAh battery. It also runs on a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU. Not bad.
Bang for Your Buck: Motorola Atrix 4G
If you like running around to the foreign lands, this should be a better phone for you. It’s not as spec-ful as the EVO 3D but it does have a humongous battery that will keep you busy for a couple of days without the need to recharge. It’s also nice that it comes with 16GB already.
Be Different: LG Optimus 3D (also known as the Thrill 4G)
This made the list not because it had great specs. What it did have was dual cameras capable of shooting 3D video and images right from your phone. This is the perfect phone to match to your 3D LED TV at home.
Muscle Phone: Samsung Galaxy S 2
You know what? I’m in the market for an upgrade and this phone definitely is the one I’m getting, no contest. We’ve talked about this phone at length already and once again, the Samsung S II (or S2, we could never decide what to call it) is an excellent phone both on paper and in actual tests. Despite being quite light and slim, it boasts of a beefy dual-core ARM processor, up to 32GB of internal storage which can double with the right microSD card, and a comfy 4.3-inch Super AMOLED screen.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to cut my writing short. I need to grab my wallet to buy this phone…
