Smart phones are raging into the market and their numbers are continually increasing. People prefer these smart phones because of their ability to multi task with ease. Samsung, HTC, LG, Motorola and Apple are the major contenders in the smart phone range. So here are the top ten smart phones of 2010.
1. Apple iPhone 4
The appple iphone has always been riding the competition with its powerful application base, specifications, design and its great features. The 4g iphone uses high quality glass that is scratch resistant and durable which is complimented by a high resolution screen.
The A4 chip from apple increases performance and increases battery efficiency. Impressive gaming, photos and a large app base is the iphone 4Gs greatest advantage.
2. Motorola Droid 2
The Motorola Droid 2 has been a significant improvement from the previous models in the Droid series. The Android powered phone includes a 1 GHZ processor and has a 8GB internal memory along with a 32GB expandable memory. The Droid 2 incorporates a slide keyboard and it consists of a faster 512MB RAM. However the minus point is the lack of front camera.
The great touch screen and the impressive sound quality along with media capabilities is one of Droid 2′s plus points. It is a great phone for those who would like a smart phone with a physical keyboard.
3. HTC HD7
In my eyes, the HTC is the most beautiful phone incorporating the Windows Phone 7 Operating System. The Windows Phone OS is great to use in this phone because of its large 4.3 inch screen. The touch is impressively great with its fast processor and RAM. There is no lag whiles using and swooping through the applications.
The apps are increasing as the days pass by and its just a matter of time when it reaches the Android and Apple range. With the impressive huge screen, user friendly interface and responsive touch screen, the HD7 is a great phone which takes it to the top of the competition.
4. Blackberry Bold 9780
Blackberry has been making a lot of user friendly phones and the Blackberry Bold 9780 is undoubtedly the most impressive non touch screen phone. The 9780 runs on the new Blackberry 6 OS and with a 512 MB RAM. The built quality is impressive and so is the Qwerty keyboard. The fluid feel of navigation is also impressive.
The Blackberry Bold 9780 is a great phone and is recommended for those people who would prefer a non touch phone.
5. Blackberry Torch 9800
Even though the Blackberry bold 9780 was a great phone, it was necessary to blend in with the competition. Blackberry introduced this touch phone to compete directly with the iphone and other devices running on Android and Windows OS. The screen is a little bit disappointing and so is the video shooting only in VGA.
The phone is for those who would like a touch phone which has a better Internet and media experience than the Blackberry Bold 9780 phone.
6. Samsung Nexus S
The Samsung Nexus S is one of the best phones that features the Android OS. The best feature of the Nexus S is its brilliantly bright and clear display which makes the applications look really good. The Nexus S comes with the Android 2.3 OS (Gingerbread) and with a powerful 1 Ghz Hummingbird Processor. It is fast and a great performer.
The sleek design though it looks good, is fragile! It does not have an expandable memory and is not a significant change in features over its predecessor.
7. Samsung Epic 4G
The Samsung Epic 4G has one of the most impressive displays in the competition, well of course behind the HTC HD7. The 1Ghz processor helps in the fast use of the phone. It also has a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash and also include a camera in the front. The Epic 4G supports Sprints 4G Wimax network.
The slide out keyboard is an added advantage to most smart phones. The Epic is great for multimedia usage. If people dont mind spending the extra cash and carry the extra bulk, the Samsung Epic 4G is the phone for you!
8. Nokia N8
Easily, the best Nokia phone! The Nokia N8 runs on a new Symbian 3 OS. The N8 provides a great user experience with its incredible screen, screen is to keyboard position and its incredible speed. The Nokia N8s best feature is the 12 mp camera and 720p video at 25 fps which can replace a digital camera.
It is weirdly expensive and the battery cannot be changed. The N8 is not as fast as its competitors but the features are pretty impressive.
9. Samsung Focus
The Windows Phone 7 OS is just a bliss in this phone. The Focus is a freakishly fast phone with great multimedia experience. Internet experience is also top notch in this phone. Social networking is made fun and easy and so is business applications. Windows comes with great games, which the Focus has. Like most Samsungs new smart phones, the Focus comes with a brilliant screen.
Windows apps are few in the market right now, but in time it will increase. No front camera available in the Samsung Focus. Memory cards which are approved by Windows OS can only be used.
10. LG Quantum
The LG Quantum is another windows phone running on the Windows Phone 7 OS. The phone feels solid and is heavy. The small screen is a disadvantage but has a 5 mp camera and HD recording. The Quantum is the only phone with a Qwerty keyboard and is one of the strong plus points.
The LG Quantum Windows phone is a solid phone and is for those people who would like a Windows phone with a Qwerty keyboard.
