Android phones seem to come out every few weeks and with the low, medium and high end markets now all saturated with phones running Android, it can be difficult to tell which one is worth your hard earned money. Here is a list of the top 3 Android powered smartphones currently on the market that offer the most value for your money.
The Galaxy S 2
The Samsung Galaxy S 2 has become legendary in the smartphone blogging world and if you look at its specs it’s easy to see why. The phone features a dual-core processor and 1GB of ram, which is plenty of power and will run any app you throw at it easily. It features dual cameras with one on the front for video chatting and one on the back that’s an impressive 8-megapixels and is able to shoot in full 1080P. While the hardware under the hood is impressive perhaps even more so is the display. The Samsung Galaxy S 2 features a huge 4.3-inch super AMOLED plus display, which offers some of the most beautiful colors of any display. Even with those impressive specs the phone keeps a very thin profile and even has some cool features like the ability to use the gyroscope to change home screens. Anyone with one of these phones is going to be future-proof for at least the next 2 years.
The Motorola Atrix
The Motorola Atrix is a real powerhouse with its NVidia Tegra 2 dual core processor and 1GB of RAM. Despite its power, it still keeps a pretty discreet profile and easily slips in an out of even the smallest pocket. The display is a crisp 4-inch LCD panel with great viewing angles and offers qHD resolution. While the colors on this device don’t compare with the Galaxy line, it makes up for it with the increased resolution, which makes text really pop without any pixilation. The Atrix also has some really interesting gimmicks such as a fingerprint reader combo button and a dock that turns your phone into a laptop.
The Nexus S
The Nexus S is the oldest phone on this list and its specs are really starting to show its age. The Nexus S features a 1GHz single core humming bird processor and 512 MBs of RAM. That’s half the power of the other phones on this list but since this list is about value the Nexus S is still a contender. Because the Nexus S is one of the few 100% Google phones, it gets access to features such as Google Wallet that other phones likely won’t have access to for a few years. It also features the latest version of Android and is always the first to receive new updates. Sure the specs are starting to look a bit lack luster but the terrific support from Google makes it still well worth the money and one of the best options available.
