The 4 Best Smartphones To Buy Right Now by Johnpaul2k2(m): 10:33am On Aug 03, 2012
Samsung Galaxy S3
Perhaps you've seen the (completely omnipresent and unavoidable) ads: Samsung's Galaxy S3 has arrived in the states, with a gleaming 4.8-inch AMOLED display and some of the fastest smartphone processing available. Heavily advertised features like S Voice (Siri wannabe), S Beam (NFC sharing between GS3s) and SmartStay (display stays bright as long as your eyes stay on it) come up short, but the speed of the phone and that gorgeous display make Samsung's third Galaxy S a charm.


HTC One X
The pundits at tech site Gizmodo maintain that the HTC One X is the best Android phone out there, and it's easy to see why they are so enamored: The One X's 4.7-inch display is lovely and responsive, and while it can't match the Galaxy S3 in speed, the superb camera of the One X challenges the iPhone 4S for the smartphone photography crown.

HTC EVO 4G LTE
Sprint just turned on its 4G LTE network, which means that the 4G LTE smartphones it's been selling can take advantage of the faster speeds. That means that the EVO 4G LTE -- the only smartphone with a built-in kickstand -- is now as fast as it should be (in select cities). Like the One X, the new EVO boasts a gorgeous display and deluxe camera; and though the design has proven hit-or-miss for some, it's certainly an eye-catcher. Next-generation noise reduction during voice calls is also built in, though it's unclear when Sprint will power up its networks to handle that feature, or how well it will work in practice.

Google/Samsung Galaxy Nexus
It's almost 8 months old at this point, and its display and camera shrink when compared to those of the current iPhone, Galaxy S3 and HTC One phones. The Galaxy Nexus, however, is still a treat, especially if you don't like the "skins" that manufacturers like HTC and Samsung load onto their phones. The Galaxy Nexus is clean, simple Android, without the obnoxious clocks or bloatware; plus, it already has Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean," an update that seems to have made the Galaxy Nexus run faster than on the day it was released back in December. And here's the real selling point of this aging phone: The Galaxy Nexus is now free on Verizon. An updated Nexus phone isn't expected until the end of 2012 or beginning of 2013, so if you're looking for pure Android with the latest operating system updates, the Galaxy Nexus remains a rational purchase.

Yeah, I think the problem is that AT&T 3G works on a different frequency than T-mobile's 3G. T-mobile uses the standard international frequency. AT&T (mainly american) uses a frequency that is not the International standard. One might argue that it is because AT&T don't want people buying their phones, unlocking it and using it for another carrier. Another argument could be that AT&T as an American company just wants to be different. However, phones from AT&T and any other carrier (T-mobile inclusive) all use the same frequency for EGDE and below, therefore if u use an AT&T phone with any other carrier's network, the best u can get is EGDE, the converse is also true. As a warning, if u plan using your phone in Nigeria, don't buy AT&T branded phone.

Cheers

I read a compelling article that showed Samsung had designs similar to the iPhone way before the iPhone was conceived or released. Even more compelling, the iPhone design looks very much like the LG Prada. They all steal from one another.

Are you serious ? Did LG prada also looks like the first generation iPhone ? Even before his death,Jobs has always challenged samsung for stealing his idea and samsung is yet to disclaim that.

Well, Samsung must have taken the position of "prove it in court if you can". Some people don't like wasting their breathe. These revelations are just coming up in the ongoing court-case.

And yes, the overall design of even the very first iPhone did look like the LG Prada:
