    Hello everyone!
    I've been looking to get an android, and I have been doing a bit of research, but I'm not sure which to get. I can't wait to join the Android family, but I'm not really an expert on Android devices, so could you give me your opinions on what would work best for me?
    Here are some specs that matter most to me:

    -Carrier won't be an issue, the phone can be from any company.
    -I'd need one with great battery life, one that can stay on actively for more than a day or two and still be fine.
    -I'd like a front-facing camera, as well as a back-facing camera. They should be able to take pretty good quality photos/videos as well.
    -A removable memory card would be nice.
    -An HDMI jack (or the ability to share content via Wifi with other devices) would be great, but it's not essential.
    -I'd gladly choose battery life over browsing speed, as long as it's not really sluggish.

    -Carrier, size, keyboard, and weight don't matter to me

    Can anyone recommend any phone that fits these specs?
    Thanks alot!
    John

    I'd just like to point this out - I always see people looking for a phone with front facing camera (FFC), but most never use it more than once (it happened to me)

    The Nexus S may be a good option, but it does not have a removable memory card


    I am less knowledgeable with regards to CDMA (Sprint of VZW) phones fitting your criteria

    Thanks Usta, that helped me further understand more in-depth specs of Androids. Also, I'll narrow my desired specs to include the Android 2.3 OS.

    Thanks for the post, I'll keep the Nexus S in mind. I'm a very heavy Skyper/video chatter, so I'm sure I'll be using the FFC often enough for it to be useful.



    Anyone else have any opinions?

    Depending on your timing the Evo 3D should be an awesome phone. Even further down the road, I'm salivating at the Galaxy S2 phones, which are amazing. I am envious our European counterparts have them already.

    I have been using the LG (TMobile G2x) for well over a month now. I love it and can't imagine wanting any other phone. But I must warn you, there have been many people getting bad ones. If you check the board for that phone you'll see lots of people on their second or third one already. Tha makes it hard for me to recommend.

    The Sensation looks great, but I love vanilla Android.
