Jason Hiner's 10 best Android smartphones

10. Samsung Galaxy S 4G

Samsung joined the Android ecosystem with a bang in 2010, putting its Galaxy S line of smartphones on lots of different carriers in lots of different form factors. The first successor to its initial line of Android phones was the Samsung Galaxy S 4G in early 2011. It was very similar to last year's Galaxy S line but it added HSPA+ capability (which T-Mobile dubiously calls "4G") and a svelte form factor that doesn't feel quite as placticy as most of last year's models. It's not quite as nice or as powerful at the Galaxy S II, but it's also much less expensive and still a solid choice.

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