The 5 Best Android Smartphones [October, 2012]

In the weeks ahead, the Android smartphone market will see the launches of several new and exciting devices including the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Motorola RAZR HD and RAZR MAXX HD and the HTC One X+. However, those phones have yet to receive official release dates leaving those looking for an Android smartphone now with a few less options. Fortunately, there are enough good options out there that buying a smartphone in October should still be fairly easy.

The Galaxy Note 2 and the Droid RAZR HD won’t be out until later this year, but those who can’t wait for those high-end options will find a fantastic selection of Android smartphones on the market right now.

At this point though, consumers who are able to wait for devices like the Galaxy Note 2 and Droid RAZR HD should but not because they’ll want to buy them. Instead, we advise those that can wait to wait because these will be great options to have in the search for right smartphone.

Of course, we realize that some people need to buy a phone right now and for those that can’t wait until the end of October, here are the five Android devices that we consider to be the absolute best on the market right now for the month of October, 2012.

  1. Nice Adam….I actually pay attention and have a general sense of interest in reading reviews by someone that is not a fanboy of a single device by a specific company lol….being that you own and find pros to 3 different devices, each to which have different OS’s hats off to you man….I was a very satisfied iPhone user for 3 years with no problems at all and I decided I would like to at least try 1 android device to see what it’s like… has its pros and cons over iPhone just like any other phone/device would and vise versa

    • champion bhai is it you? This is Raman :)
      And the review seems just but for one ranking… I think Atrix 2 would have fit better than the Samsung Galaxy Nexus…
      What say Adam? :)

  2. I’ll take my Bionic over a Razr any day…built in battery?…umm NOOO. Stupid idea and prevents from being able to fully pc your device when/if needed…as was the case with my wife’s at one point. What’s in the works for a “Bionic 2″ I wonder?

  3. Great list. Finally one with sense. I own a RAZR Max x910 a galaxy nexus and s3 and my daily use phone is my galaxy nexus. I gave the RAZR to my wife and the s3 is my play phone .

  4. I know a lot of people who are awed by the features of Samsung Galaxy S III. I’m not an Android user,but I think it is more user-friendly compare to iPhones and Blackberry.
