1st Place: HTC Desire HDIf this was the year of Android then the HTC Desire HD has to be its crowning glory. This mammoth handset is well made, is beautifully simplistic in its styling, and packs in an enormous 4.3in screen that looks great. What's more it has just about every feature we can think of and as Android is an open platform it means you can tweak it to suit your needs. Its shear size won't appeal to everyone but if you don't mind your phones to be large then you won't find better at the moment. Honourable mention also has to go to the HTC Desire, which despite being many months old is still among the best smartphones on the market, especially with its new SLCD screen. Ultimately, though, its bigger brother wins out.

If you're less about features and more about ease of use, and you don't mind splashing the cash, it's still one of the best phones available.
