What is Your Perfect Android Phone?

Everyday, we see new leaks of rumored phones that may be coming out soon somewhere around the world, whether it be in Europe, the United Kingdom or the United States. Lets take a little break from that and talk about what features and specs would make the perfect Android phone for you.

The Galaxy S II LTE HD has a super AMOLED display, dual core 1.2Ghz processing, and 4G LTE connectivity

So what are some of the things that are important to you in looking for a new Android phone? Perhaps, processor speed and whether its single core, dual core, or dare I say – quad core? Maybe you’re just looking for a decent camera in a new phone, like the 8MP – 1080p recording camera the HTC Sensations have. Or are you just looking at the size and quality of the screen? Like the 4.5″ screen of the Samsung Infuse on AT&T. Nice right?

The HTC Amaze has an amazing, lightning fast camera, but terrible battery life

Honestly, not one phone has all the best specs. I thought the HTC Amaze and Sensation had all the best specs possible, but I wrong. They do not even have a full gigabyte of RAM, only 768MB., which isn’t bad for a phone, as the iPhone only has 512MB, but who cares about that? What it comes down to is which phone has the best specs for what you will be doing with it the most?

The Galaxy Nexus (Prime) has the makings of what many consider to be the "perfect" Android phone - but for how long?

For example, if you use your phone for a lot of games, and movies, you will probably want something like the Samsung Infuse, HTC Amaze, or HTC Sensation. If you are just doing web browsing and occasional emails, something like the LG Thrill will be more than sufficient. If you are looking for a phone that can potentially replace your digital camera, then you’ll want to keep your eyes out for the very much rumored Galaxy Nexus that should be announced tomorrow night around 10PM EST.

Tell us what your dream or perfect Android phone would be in the comments. Feel free to include specs, the manufacturer that would make it, what you would name the device, and which carrier you’d want it on.

    For me, it would be:

    -High quality plastic for durability and to keep the weight off
    -4.65 inch Super HD AMOLED Plus screen
    -1.2 to 1.5 dual core – I don’t think I have need for quad-core, yet :-)
    -Vanilla android
    -Nice big battery
    -Thin and lightweight

    Huh, except for the plastic building material, I think I just described the Nexus Prime (or whatever it’s going to be called). Can’t wait for tomorrow!

  • A blend of the SGS2 and the Amaze. Samsung processor, screen, etc. HTC build quality and camera.

    I would love the S2 HD but don’t want to wait so long. I wish the prime had full use of the 4.65″ screen and not only 4.3″ plus touch screen buttons. S2 HD will have 4.65″ full use. I love screen real estate.

    The Samsung Galaxy S2 is kind of already perfect, but in addition to it I would say:

    Perhaps a 1.5Ghz processor instead of a 1.2 just to make it even smoother/faster
    AMOLED Plus display in HD
    Better Battery
    HD sound speaker built-in
    Ice Cream Sandwich?

  • Rory Stawart

    I’ve pretty much got my perfect phone: Galaxy S2. Only thing I would change is the screen resolution (720P?), 32/64GB internal memory, better battery life, and Ice Cream Sandwich! Other than that, it’s perfect.

  • Matt

    Like my infuse and from what i have witnessed the battery lasts longer than the galaxy S2 and the screen is bigger than the att S2 so far it is fast and works pretty well have no complaints i have had the htc inspire and the iPhone 4

  • VanSnipes

    HTC build quality
    4.4 inch AMOLED HD display
    4g lte speeds
    super thin
    12 megapixel camera
    1 gb of ram
    1.5 ghz dual core
    Ice cream sandwich with ADW customizations

  • Kevin Kerr

    12 MP f/2.2 camera
    42mbps HSPA+
    720p Super AMOLED Plus HD screen
    2050mAh battery
    metal chassis

    Basically the Galaxy S III.

    HTC and Samsung should really pair up. HTC needs Samsung’s processors and screens while Samsung need’s HTC build quality, cameras, and [maybe] Sense.

  • Anonymous

    Pure Android 4.0 (brand UI shizz is optional)
    1280×720 4.3″ superAMOLED curved 3D screen
    alluminum, 9 mm thin with hardware QWERTY
    12 MP f/2.2 with Xenon flash and Sony’s EXMOR R sensor
    Battery enough for 14 hours of heavy use

    …and I am done.

  • Vawwyakr

    Something like the Moto Webtop but integrated with Android and not tacked on (maybe Ice Cream will do this?). A Tablet Dock accessory with attachable keyboard to make a Laptop dock. Beyond that just make it fast and as close to vanilla as possible.

  • Frankkie12345

    My perfect android would be:
    A G1 on the outside
    A galaxy nexus on the inside.

    The g1 has the best keyboard ever.
    The g1 has the best rgb-led (notification-led)ever
    The g1 has the best trackball ever.
    The g1 has a camera-button

    The nexus has nfc
    The nexus has the best screen ever
    The nexus has the best camera ever
    (And specs and stuff)

  • I don’t think I’ll ever find a phone that is perfect by comparison. I always find myself wanting this processor, that screen, this amount of RAM, this version of the OS, etc. But none of them are ever on one phone! I wrote an article about this on my site..
