    HTC One X or Samsung Galaxy S III. Another option is to wait for the next Google Nexus phone which should be released soon, as Android is getting an update to 4.1 Jelly Bean.

    I am also going with the HTC One X...or if you are on Sprint, go for the HTC EVO 4G LTE. The Samsung Galaxy S3 is also a good choice.

    Nothing hotter than a man who know what's going on in the tech world icon_lol.gif back to topic, Samsung S III is top choice but if you can wait until October, Google will introduce their next Android smartphone. Sony Xperia Arc S is also a great option if you're under budget ($275 on amazon, and its a great phone, ICS upgradable, stylist and stand out since Samsung S III has been carried by all carrier network in the US)

    I've given up on the Samsung Note coming to Verizon so a Galaxy S3 is next as soon as they’re in to replace the older of my two phones, the Droid X.

    Just got a One X and I love it, the screen is amazing. Not a fan of the S3 design or amoled screen.

    I get a new one every 6 - 9 months so even if I screw up, I fix it soon. I've had the droid X since late 2010 and the Razr since December so I figure it's about time.

    I have the Samsung Skyrocket... pretty awesome so far! Everything I've heard about Samsung has been positive.

    in terms of basic useability almost all of the Android phones are awesome. Try and pick one of the newer ones with multi-core processors but stay away from any of Motorola's "Droid" phones. Their overlay (the way they employ the Android interface) is lousy, glitchy and twitchy not to mention a bit clumsy. Definitely go with either an HTC or a Samsung (I have the HTC Rezound).

    If you get a 4G phone and use your handset all day you'll definitely want to get the extended battery pack so when you are shopping for the phone, make sure that they have at least a gel case they can sell you that fits the phone with the extended battery door (when i bought my old Thunderbolt they didn't have a case that fit the extended battery and that's how the screen ended up getting shattered)

    Wait for the Samsung Galaxy SIII. I have the SII, which came out in October of last year, and have loved the phone. The screen is large and GORGEOUS on it. Samsung has always been a brand to treat me to a good tech experience. Check out some of the SIII's features.

    I had an HTC Desire for a couple years and replaced it a couple months ago with a Samsung Galaxy S2. The Desire was great except for one major flaw: insufficient app space.

    Only problem with Android platform is they are much more malware prone especially through apps than other platforms.

    that's because they let anyone and everyone write for their store. Its the inevitable trade-off. Apple controls what gets published for their devices like a Nazi but you've got less content (and no Flash support) whereas Android lets anything into its store. God help us for having to utilize our common sense to know what we should and shouldn't download, heeheehee

    This is true...unfortunately, "common sense" is definately not common.

    Certainly Andriod is more flexible. I don't even know why I pay for a smart phone. I only use it for phone calls and texts these days.icon_question.gif
