PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nielsen's latest smartphone numbers show Apple's iPhone by far the most popular device among mobile computing hardware, but Android in a strong lead as the most popular OS. But while it's great to have choices in hardware, it can certainly be maddening to have to choose, especially if you don't have the fortitude to keep up with what's new on the market. So, dear readers, for the benefit of those who might be in the market for an Android handset, which one is best?

I got Samsung Galaxy S smartphone- it is really good piece of equipment. Only problem is piece of shit operating system Android. I have to reboot it weekly or else I can't hear and anyone can't hear me on call randomly. Mail client is a joke- no backup function or anything. I have important mails archived only on my phone and I can't just backup them- I have to create other account and then copy mail to other account folder. If I forward mail then it will arrive without original content. As former Nokia phone owner I am very dissapointed and I am not computer illiterate.

It feels just like Linux- full of unfinished, untested shit. Android 2.2 by the way.

YMMW no offence.

You should use the HTC Troll. That would be the perfect phone for you.

The SGS II is a large step up software wise. Note that you can probably install CM 7.1 or Samsung's android 2.3 on your SGS - the 2.3 from Samsung is actually pretty good.

First of, dont blame Android for that, the voice problems you see have nothing to do with the operating system, its a modem firmware problem and it is most likely resolved in newer firmware versions, Samsung deployed 2.3.3 recently to the sgs. if you cant update through Samsung Kies software (some providers just dont care for their customers) i strongly recommend to visit the xda-developers forum for other update methods. Also the email client is not android software, it is made by Samsung. We all know Samsung is good in building hardware, but they should learn to provide good software.
