    For me presonally, the absolute, very best smartphone is the one I carry in my pocket everyday (that is when I don't forget it at home <grin>) which is the HTC Incredible. All current smartphones on the market doesn't appeal to me. Mi dos centavos.

    Wait for the Samsung Galaxy S II. It will be the standard against which all are judged. Should be available on most US carriers by Sept/Oct. 4G/LTE, Super AMOLED Plus screen, 1080p recording. dual cameras, dual core 1.2G processor 1g of RAM all in a package slimmer than the iPhone. This will be the gold standard for some time.

    OP, this question is impossible to answer. Reason being, what phone is best FOR YOU, may not be best FOR ME. We all have different expectations and desires for what we want from/to do with our phones, so therefore no one can say "x phone is the best".

    Most Smartphones all do the same thing. Just some are better quality than others and exceed in areas as far as speed, battery, solid build, etc etc.

    If somebody forced me to pick based on specifications alone, this is what I'd say too. I think it really comes down to what phone is best for you, on a personal level.

    Don't smack me, but I liked my iPhone 3GS. I know it's not as fast or pretty as the newer phones. Just the build quality on the 3GS man that thing was good. I even jailbroke it and the phone never messed up very rarely even a glitch out of that thing. I do like Android alot better. I just wish they could make em tough like that iPhone 3GS.

    Looking at your profile I see you have about 8 phones. What do you do with them all?

    Samsung Galaxy S2 - no question!

    Had it a few weeks now and it is incredible. Fantastic screen, super fast, installs multiple apps faster than I can select them! Fantastic camera, amazing video quality and don't even get me started about DNLA. It attaches to my TV over WiFi and I can watch HD movies played directly from my phone - no pauses or waits.

    Love it, Love it, Love it.

    Need I say more?

    It hasn't been released yet. Never will either. Anytime a "best of breed" appears you can guarantee that it will be usurped/bettered/pwned a month or two later. Never has the old adage "if you wait for something better you'll wait forever" been truer than with smartphones in 2011. It's an embarrassment of riches out there and we're spoilt for choice. Choose wisely to suit your needs now rather than worry about what might be around the corner in the future.

    Hi Slug. Yeah, I say the same about laptops, but you just gotta choose something or, like you say, you will wait forever.
    For me the Galaxy 2 is the top choice because of the 1.2Ghz dual core. I know that there will be a lot of dual cores released this year, but with that amazing screen I'm betting that the S2 will compete well with them all. Now when triple/quad cores come out - that's another story. Still, I reckon it'll be a while before I feel jealous of another phone.

    There is no "best", it's all personal choice. Horses for courses innit?

    Personally i can honestly say that i've found my perfect phone in the Xperia Arc - there's no way i'd swap it with anything else that's out there at the moment, dual core or no dual core. Maybe eventually something will come along that catches my eye, but there's nothing out there right now that comes close.

    That's just my preference though.
