This was originally the Android thread, but it seems like it branched out into discussion of general smartphones, so I renamed it accordingly. I also preserved the original post below for posterity's sake.

 

Android, i love this system ever since i got my moto droid phone

my favorite app for it is probobly sniper shot, which is pretty fun



discuss all and anything about android phones or android related

I absolutely love the Android OS. My friends has a G1. I have a Nokia 5230 and its so slow and the Symbian OS is kinda outdated.

It is my duty as an Android user to say "Fuck you Iphone."

And also my favorite app is this.

I want one very, very badly, because my current phone is a piece of shit. I remember trying the Incredible out at the Verizon store, and it was great. I would've gotten the original Droid, but they've since discontinued it for the Droid 2 :(

I'd simply get the Droid 2, if it wasn't so frickin expensive.

I read some reviews, and it looks like Droid 2 really isn't worth it. If you want a better interface, you could just get the Droid Incredible, and if you wanted a better display, you could get a Droid X. They're also all the same price right now, and the only good reason to get the Droid 2 over either of those is for the physical keyboard.

also unintentional necrobump, my bad

Don't sweat it.

Also, if you're planning to root, I would stay away from the Droid X right now since it has a internal design that makes rooting very difficult/inconvenient. If you want to root, I'd grab the Incredible instead, since the Droid X and Droid 2 are both designed by Motorola and there's a good chance Droid 2 is designed the same way.

I really want to get one of those upcoming Sony ones that sort of has a built-in PSP... I forget the exact name, and the only model picture is fake, unfortunately. I would love to have an Android phone either way.

i want one of these really badly.

i have an lg env touch and the thing has so many fucking glitches and problems. i've had to get a refurbished model twice (one time, the one they gave me didn't even work), and I'll be working on a third one because mine won't charge anymore. but i digress

these things look awesome but i most likely will never get one.

Isn't the LG EnV Touch on T-Mobile? By the time your contract expires, the G2 might be out by then.

This is the one that I wanted.

http://www.engadget.com/2010/08/11/exclusive-sony-ericsson-to-introduce-android-3-0-gaming-platfor/

There's not even that much information revealed about it yet, other than that it's a gaming-based phone. But it makes me drool in anticipation.

I'm sure when it's out it's going to have a lot of good functionality with the PS3 as well. I remembered hearing some Sony Ericsson phones were like that.
