Mobile phone technology is moving faster than ever and now with smartphones available for an affordable price, our phones are doing more and more for us than ever before. Not all smart phones are fantastic though and, as with anything, there are some phones that are better than others. Some are faster, some have better features, some have the best software; there are many reasons why phones are classed as good. Here is a quick rundown of some of the very best smartphones in the world and why they are considered as such.
Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc
Incredibly impressive hardware and great aesthetics are what you can expect from the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc as the best smartphone from Sony Ericsson approaches a year in the smartphone market. It has some flaws, but the high points make up for it and then some, with the phone's 8.1 megapixel camera being one of these.
The world's most popular smartphone and for good reason, it has some of the best hardware, including a screen on which the human eye cannot pick out any individual pixel, and some great software as well. Although there are some dual core phones that are now moving past it, this is the best single core phone on the market.
Samsung Galaxy S II
The original Galaxy was great but this follow up is really much better. A dual core 1.2 GHz processor and a great 4.3 inch screen, perfect for watching movies, are just two of the reasons why you should buy this phone. The web browsing, utilising Flash, is seamless and the camera is good enough to use as a digital camcorder. The best phone in the world today by some margin.
The next Desire is out soon but this is still a fantastic phone and offers a cheap alternative to many of the other smart phones out there. The phone utilises the Android software like no other and is still up there with the best a year after its release.
