Android leaderboard: The 10 best smartphones | ZDNet
Shocking that the Epic 4G is #6...smh
Exactly WHAT feature does the Evo have that the Epic doesn't that make it the pound-for-pound favorite?
Depending on which journalist article you read, they all have their own opinion. This is one that I posted on SU forums awhile back:
Top 10 Android Phones - PCWorld
I pretty much agree with that list except for putting the vibrant at 2. Wtf...I had the vibrant...the lag was horrendous. I would still have the evo at 1 then the nexus one and then the epic. Reason? I prefer htc over samsung any day . Just my opinion thouh because we all obviously know that the epic is amazing
I would not be surprised if the person that made this list had no idea that the Captivate, Vibrant, Fascinate and Epic are all Galaxy S phones.......
Okay, I guess I can understand the Evo up there with it being the first 4G phone and now having 2.2 on it....but why those others are >Epic I don't know?
Now THAT review looks more reasonable. The DInc is basically the Nexus1 with a trackpad instead of the trackball. The DX is an upgrade to both (bigger screen, etc..) . The Evo has more features than 3,4,5. The Epic has more features than all with the additiona of the KB, screen, etc.
This one seems a little more accurate. I mean it's a no Brainer at this point that the top three are the EVO, Droid X and Epic in whatever order you may choose, and then the next group probably the Vibrant, nexus and incredible.
Of course it does.
The fact that they all belong to the same line does not make them equal in the way they perform.

It has already been stated that members are NOT to go into other phone forums with the distinct purpose of posting "My phone is better than yours" type posts.
Looking at post 1, and your last post I am assuming you are doing just that.
This is insane. I don't know if the reviewer has actually seen phones. the mytouch slide is much better than ally. Much much better.
Now, that pc world ranking is much better.
Uh, yeah..whatever that means, but i own both phones, if that makes you feel better.
This past weekend I was hanging out with a couple friends. Between us, I had just bought the Epic, one friend the EVO, and the other the Droid 2. The other two were android noobs (D2 for 2 weeks, EVO not even 1) so they let me play around with them. I have to say I've never been more happy with my Epic choice. The D2 was my least favorite. I didn't play around with it as much as the EVO but nothing stood out to me. The default launcher was bland at best and the screen looked extremely dull. I liked the EVO but after using the S-AMOLED screen and Swype, I could never go to it.
Relax..the Epic is only 2 weeks old...it will get up there as soon as we get the 2.2 froyo and all the bugs get worked out
All the bugs/issues the epic has...and its at 6th place .....that's pretty impressive if u ask me
This guy has the LG Ally listed in this top ten so he's an idiot regardless of how he ranks these phones...He raves about the EVO but doesn't mention anything really for the Epic besides the physical keyboard and it being a Galaxy S phone.
A co-worker of mine has the Vibrant and I asked him why he only has 2 widgets running. He said it lags like hell anytime he puts more widgets on.
I found that odd considering I got 6 widgets and it's smooth as butter on my Epic. We're both running LP, but for whatever reason his Vibrant runs like crap compare to my Epic. I played with it and it doesn't feel or run as fast as my epic.....
As for the list, why does anyone really care for it? I don't. I read it and that's his opinion.
Agreed. I don't think the EVO would've even made the list on 2.1
Well, the EVO does have Froyo and also has the HTC Sense UI. And both cameras are higher resolution, and it can tether to more devices.
It seems that the top 3 phones are represented by the 3 major manufactuers for android in the US. Htc evo, samaung epic 4g and Motorola Droid X
