    I am really torn now, I have trawled the web, read bucket loads of hype, baskets of criticism, and even lots of positive reviews but I am now torn and undecided just what to buy, except that I am not prepared to pay the premium to be locked into Apple or any other, I have read the posts here and a bunch of other Android locations but opinions seem inconclusive.

    These are the criteria for me because I travel extensively and pretty much continuously around Europe

    1) Good Battery life / easy rapid charging (I generally carrying a spare battery and solar charger though).
    2) Good conference call capabilities.
    3) Navigation.
    4) Bluetooth sync with car (Kenwood system primarily).
    5) Skype / E-Mail access.
    6) Pocket sized, preferably shirt pocket.
    7) Absolutely no sim locks and no branding.
    8) Decent camera (don't need SLR standards but got to be better than the POS on the iPhone / Blackberry's).

    I don't care about music or video streaming.

    I am not asking which is the best for me to buy because handsets like many things are a personal thing, what one likes another won't.

    Instead is it possible for owners of Android based phones (particularly those running OS 2.1) could post their positives and negatives.
