lecgbe: The Optimus G is the best. Much better than the SIII and why Google picked it for the Nexus. But the G has LTE and the flexibility of miniSD that the Nexus doesn't. Yes the Google phone does have Jellybean not Ice Cream Sand but for me it was the right replacement for my 3GS.
moothemagiccow: ZeroCorpse: I think it's hilarious that we've gotten to the point in our civilization where there's such a thing as a "best" and "worst' telephone.It's for you
Bloody Templar: That said, I'm not a shill. I was an Android fanboy prior to coming to MS.
secularsage: I think it's even more remarkable that the #2 phone is a Windows Phone (over the iPhone 5 at #3).The Galaxy S III is really nice. I've got a Droid RAZR Maxx and it's quite nice (and they're not kidding about the battery life; it blows away other Android phones). My only real beef with Android phones, aside from the fragmentation and bloatware everyone complains about, is the nomenclature -- why can't these phone manufacturers pick a simple name for their phones instead of tacking on ridiculous adjectives and numbers?The "Galaxy S III" is a very confusing name for a phone, and non-technical people will think the S II and the S III aren't that different. The Droid RAZR, RAZR M and RAZR MAXX all sound very similar and then there are HD variants of the RAZR and RAZR MAXX that add to the confusion.Android gets even more confusing for casual users since all versions of ICS and Jellybean aren't created equal due to custom software from manufacturers. It just adds to the nomenclature nightmare.Part of marketing a product well is finding a simple, one-word poem of a name and going with that. iPhone is a great name in that regard, and the number simply tells you which generation it is. The Android phone makers could learn a lot from that.
Ed Grubermann: As a former Android user, you can have my iPhone 4s when you pry it out of my cold, dead hands.
