    The number one spot is DEAD ON THE MONEY!

      Seriously? I understand for nostalgia’s sake. But please explain to me why the Nexus One is better than EVO?

      No doubt – it’s a great phone – but number 1? Why would Google pull it if they didn’t think it was “dated” ?

      • Greg

        The Nexus One IS the best phone. It’s not just nostalgia. I switched to Sprint a couple weeks ago from T-Mobile because they have a better network where I live, but I miss my N1. The EVO doesn’t even compare. I’m not sure I’d give it the #2 spot either. The N1 kicks EVO’s butt on speed, reliability, user experience (I freakin HATE Sense), etc, etc.

  • RonnieB

    Are you kidding me? I have a G1 and my fiancee has a myTouch 3G. Your list has my phone ranked two higher than hers? I know it was a fan vote, and I do love my G1, but there’s no doubt in my mind that her myTouch is a much better phone. I just wish Google would remember us G1 owners that have been running Android since the beginning and let us get an update. 1.6 is so last year… literally. LOL!

    • Jared

      Despite the G1 being older than the myTouch, it does have a 5 row keyboard. And since android is open-sourced with made to be modded phones the G1 can be better than a MT3G when rooted, new rom, and an overclock kernal. The G1 is a better dev-phone in my belief.

  • You should have grouped the votes for the samsung galaxy s variants. No Desire means you should probably specify this list as Top 25 Android Phones Available In America too!

    • Karl

      Desire is available in the US now. 🙂 On select regional carriers.

    • There’s a big difference between the galaxy s variants, tho– I’d much, much rather have an Epic (hard keyboard, 4G) than a Fascinate (Bing instead of Google search)

    • ConGrid


  • bob

    Where is the desire in that list eh?

  • Yup the Desire trumps all those, although America only got it last week or so.

  • vincent

    Both this top 25 and last weeks missing out the HTC Desire, WTF! It’s basically a Nexus One but better!

    • jdog

      But there is the problem it is the same as the Nexus One but the Nexus gets Google latest version of android first so even if the Desire was on this list it would be at probably number if not lower because it is carrier and manufacturer controlled.

    • Raphael Savina

      Some would say that a HTC Desire is a Nexus One with HTS Sense (there is more to it but that’s true to say that) and it makes it slower to update to the latest Android version so it makes the Desire less attractive than the Nexus One…

      • Mat

        Main difference (other than sense) is the awesome noise cancelling mic in the nexus 🙂

  • tristan

    @Ronnie you’re not going to be getting any more official updates. The only way your g1 is ever seeing 2.2 is if you use a custom rom.

    Which I recommended you do.

  • tekrhino

    The Number One spot is Deadly Correct!!

    • ontheFritz

      second that!

  • Martin

    I agree with the number 1.

    Has the same power as the Desire but trumps it on updates in my opinion. Stock Android will always beat Sense for me.

    • Martin

      In addition, that isn’t bad going for a phone which is 8 months old!

  • futurejohn

    Wow, I’m surprised how accurate this list is. It’s pretty interesting that right after 15 is where all the worthless phones begin.

    • Martin

      I’m also surprised at the result. Considering the number of phones supposedly sold.

  • Rahul

    Moto Milestone is the best.

  • mikeeeee

    they haven’t made it yet.

    bluetooth HID.

    UMA/WIFI calling.

    when they include those things then, they have a winner.

  • mjsd555

    I have an EVO and am very surprised by this ranking…or actually not so surprised. Everyone is always complaining about how crappy the battery life is so I thought it might be lower. I get great battery life, no problem getting through a full day and agree that it’s the second best Android phone out there. If I could get the N1 on Sprint I would.

  • #5, woo!

  • quang

    I am proud to be a nexus one owner!
    Custom ROM: Cyanogen Mod 6 the stable release.
    My phones performance topped the stock 2.2 nexus one on quandrant standard. Android rules!

  • gopa

    why is there no dell streak

  • opiate46

    The Droids do not beat the Vibrant. I’ll give exception to the Incredible because of its smoothness, but not the others. Hell the only reason the EVO beats it is because of features. Ever played with those two side by side? The EVO feels sluggish in comparison. Also, rootability should play a factor as in if you’re on this site there’s a good chance you root and play in that world.

    I do agree with #1. I wish the companies would see this and realize customers want Android – not Sense, Touchwiz, or Blur.

  • JaylanPHNX

    Honestly, with the way the update schedule has been, I’d rather have a Behold II than my Cliq XT. At least it has 1.6 and an AMOLED screen. Boo, Motorola!

  • After having an EVO since May, and getting the Epic last week, I have to say the Epic is a better phone (subjectively). Sure it only runs 2.1, but it is pretty damn fast. I enjoy the screen and the dedicated camera button. I’m not too keen on the battery life.

  • I like Nexus One.

  • JJ

    I agree with #1, but its funny that when the Htc Hero first came out (or leaked rom)…..everyone said how boring vanilla android was and how they wanted Roise( aka sense)….heck Haykuro made Danger SPL just cuz people wanted a “Nicer more featureful rom” now everyone jumps on the vanilla bandwagon…Ive always like vanilla and never wanted anything else…

  • rainai

    Proud to be a N1 owner! #1! Mmmm… Mmmm…

  • Rye

    Where’s HTC Desire? 🙁

  • Patrick

    I do love my Nexus One!! Maybe because it’s pure Android and doesn’t have all that crapware on it, especially since I’ve had Android since the G1 almost two years ago.

  • ben

    HTC Desire should be in the list at number 1.

  • Claudia

    I have a G1 for a business phone now and a MyTouch Slide as a personal phone. There’s also the Samsung Galaxy S in our house. I love them all! My man and I also agree that the Cliq sucks.

  • Luis

    The Samsung Vibrant should be higher on that list. If u look at some of the phones that are higher on the list by specs u will see what I am talking about.

  • Luis

    The Samsung Vibrant should be higher on that list. If u look at some of the phones that are higher on the list by specs u will see what I am talking about.

  • erlis linza

    OMG! i hv a g1 and its halfway! it sounds gr8 4 a 2 year old phone..

  • Ben

    Hey! I have the Motorola Backflip and I think it’s the best phone ever. Ity should have at least made the list.

  • Adam

    No HTC Droid Eris? I figured it would be around the middle of the pack.

    And have to agree with Luis. The Samsung Vibrant is an amazing device. #3 on my list behind the Epic and the Evo. And it’s not missing a physical keyboard. It doesn’t need one.

  • Gil

    I guess people didn’t read the post. Why are folks getting upset there phone didn’t get number one or a better ranking. This was a vote by the staff and readers. This was the end result. Droid X

  • reggie523

    The battery life could be better but in all i’m please with my Evo

  • chrisg28382

    i have the htc desire, and i have to say boooooo. maybe its the carrier (us cell) i dont know, but its slow on 3g, switches back and forth from 3g to 1x, and reboots at random. been replaced once, jumping ship to verizon, and most likely the droid x

  • Beachem

    I agree that the nexus is on top
    however the droid is not better then the captivate
    A g1 is no where near better then the mytouch get real.

  • Yasir

    where is desire from htc ,the real #1.

  • savouy

    what about galaxy s ….i9000 ?? how can it be missed out
