Jason Hiner's 10 best Android smartphones

8. T-Mobile G2x

One of the best kept secrets is the T-Mobile G2x, made by LG. Along with the Galaxy Nexus, this is the only phone on the list that runs the stock Android OS, and that's a big plus in my opinion. The G2x has a very polished, high-quality design with lots of metal. It has plenty of speed to burn and the form factor is a little smaller, similar to the HTC Amaze. It's not huge like the Droid Razr, so it's going to appeal to people who want a smaller, more portable design or simply have smaller hands.

If you don't like slide shows, you can also view this as a list in the companion blog post.
