Top Five Android Phones to Rival iPhone 4

946thumb.jpgWith an Operating System that was more popular than Apple’s last time we looked – Google Android phones are big and growing quickly. The software is made by Google but gets embedded in phones from all over the price range. Here are five of the top offerings, all capable of rivalling the iPhone 4.

Skimming down the list, the big-hitting Android phones are largely made by Chinese manufacturers HTC, though we also have a contender apiece from Sony Ericsson and Motorola. Lots of more affordable Android handsets are made by the likes of Samsung
Compared to the iPhone Android weaknesses tend to be the battery life – the high-functioning phones will eat through the energy unless you turn off functions like push notifications.

Arguably the Android app store’s easy-going attitude to apps means that there’s no quality control and the variety of handsets means that some apps can render weirdly.
The strengths? Well they are usually cheaper, there’s greater choice of handsets and contracts and Android apps are on average cheaper than iPhone ones. Oh yes and you’re not tied into iTunes and as far as we know, the other phones don’t have aerial problems.

  • I’m still learning from you, but I’m improving myself. I definitely liked reading everything that is written on your blog.Keep the information coming. I liked it!

  • You are crazy if your list doesn’t include the HTC Droid Incredible. Add the extra life battery and this is so much better than the iPhone 4. Plus it is on Verizon Wireless instead of ADud&Dud.

  • HTC are actually from Taiwan not China! Also I am surprised that there is no space for the Samsung Galaxy S which is considered by many to be the best Android phone out in the UK at the moment and the Motorola Droid X and Motorola Droid/Milestone 2 which are the follow ups to the Motorola Milestone mentioned and therefore likely to be much better!
