Best Non-Nexus Android Phone Of 2011: Readers' Choice

The Samsung Galaxy S II.

Samsung-Galaxy-S-II

This really comes as no surprise. The Samsung Galaxy S II is still one of the most powerful handsets on the market, and with an Ice Cream Sandwich update inbound sometime in the coming year, it's only going to get better.

Well, that was quick. Shortly after new Google TV partners were announced, LG has announced one of their Android-powered offerings: the LG Smart TV with Google TV. Details are scant at this point, as the device won't be demonstrated until CES, but we do know that it will launch in two series at some point this year. Both will feature LG's Cinema 3D displays, which do not require the expensive shuttering glasses to work, and both will come bundled with remote with the Magic Remote Qwerty - unsurprisingly, a QWERTY version of their Magic Remote.

Update: Dow Jones Newswires apparently left out a key piece of information from Hesse's statement on throttling, in an example of truly stellar journalism and attention to detail (unfortunately, we have no audio or video record to verify Hesse's statements). Hesse was discussing throttling of those who are on networks that Sprint has roaming agreements with (which, admittedly, Sprint has a lot of - including with Verizon). While this still makes Sprint's ads technically misleading, the throttling really only applies to those who live in areas where Sprint's data network relies chiefly on roaming - not to those using primarily Sprint towers.

If you listen to music on your Android phone (and who doesn't?) then you need PowerAmp. What is PowerAmp, you ask? It's probably the best music player for Android. It's packed with basically every feature you could possibly want in a music player, all wrapped up in a sexy looking package. And we have fifty licenses to give away to fifty different people.

This contest is now over. Here are our winners, selected at random:

Google TV's debut device, the Logitech Revue, may have been a commercial failure, but Google isn't showing any signs of giving up on the platform. We've already seen the Revue receive the Honeycomb 3.1 update, bringing the all-important Market access to the platform, and now Google has announced a host of Google TV partners who plan to unveil hardware at CES next week:

  • LG
  • Marvell
  • MediaTek
  • Samsung
  • Sony
  • Vizio

Although they didn't release many specific details, it seems that many of these new Google TV-powered devices will actually be TVs as opposed to separate boxes - LG even plans to release an entire of line of TVs, powered by their own L9 chipset.

Update: The ad has been removed from CNET, but we've retained a couple images, below. Sounds like someone finally figured out the rather embarrassingly bad mistake they just made.

Well, it looks like someone doing ad-serving for CNET pulled the trigger a little early. If you head over to this CNET page (it may be taken down soon, in fact, it almost certainly will) you'll see an ad for the Sprint Galaxy Nexus, the first 4G LTE phone to hit Sprint's upcoming LTE network.

Sprint

Who else wants a piece of the LTE pie? The Now Network does! Sprint CEO Dan Hesse just announced the markets that will kick off the company's LTE rollout, and, interestingly enough, they chose four of the same cities as AT&T did for its LTE-startup (cue conspiracy theories in 3... 2... 1...) - Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio, TX; along with Atlanta, GA.

Some users are speculating that this move is so Sprint can directly compete with AT&T, while others are suggesting that it's more technical than that and is actually about tower placements, locations, policies, etc.

Update: Things appear to be moving along nicely - Nathan just released the first Beta version of CWM touch. Hit the link below to check it out.

What's the hottest thing to hit custom recoveries since, well... custom recoveries hit? Your fingers! That's right, touch-based recoveries (like TWRP) are starting to make the rounds on various devices, and Android modder Nathan Grebowiec just released an unofficial version of ClockworkMod Recovery with touch controls for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (both GSM and LTE variants).

Looks like Moto is getting ready to push out a couple of budget Android-power handsets to various parts of the world (excluding the U.S.). First up is the little brother to the Defy, appropriately named Defy Mini.

The DM offers a lot of the same "life-proof" features as its big brother, including dust protection, a scratch-resistant screen, and protection against water damage, all packed into its tiny 3.2-inch shell. You'll find a 3MP shooter on the back of the Android 2.3 device, a VGA front camera, and it has 1,650mAh batter for up to 10 hours of talk time.
