Google’s competitive platform is given Apple a huge competition by running features that most non apple fanatics find amazing and apple royals are also noticing. The buzz about both Android and a Google phone for a while has been long waiting. Android now available to the consumer market is in various forms with different brand models.
Android has made a conscious effort to flood the market rather than just step in. Customers looking for Android phones have plenty of choice and hence, there is a bit of confusion too. To make matters easy, we are pointing out 8 best smartphones available with the Android and their marvellous features.
To start with the Motorola Droid X is to with the best. Though HTC does give it a power competition, Motorola makes it a point to out beat its former Droid models this season. The model is stylish, rubber backed and slimmer than the HTC EVO 4G. It has all its buttons sleekly fit around it and makes for rather savvy model.
Among its plus points is the display and 1 GHz performance which is speedy and effective in navigation. Also, the multimedia use of this phone is rocking and can also be used to make your own videos or take pictures with its fantastic camera.
The only point that does not agree with all its new found freedom is that it is not introduced with the latest version of Android. Apart from which, everything else well settles it at number one.
The Google phone is a yardstick to measure others but lacks in design capability and has hardware issues. The first very to promote the Android, it runs beautifully and is really slim. The price is reasonable and it operates without any given issues. While we are talking of the software and size, the battery can give you a problem as it does not stand long hours.
Also, for music lovers, the multimedia functions of the phone are not very impressive. The Google Nexus One is fast, simple and amazes you with the tweaks to the Android OS 2.1 by making it look savvier. For small business owners, this lightning fast OS easily integrates with any answering service to allow you to rapidly read and respond to messages that may be sent. The design is slim and easy but not super cool. The bit that takes the cake is its 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor that increases its productivity and speed and the camera is simply fabulous.
A phone for people who like it useful, efficient and do not expect much in terms of gadgetry or wow features.
