3. Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S
Powered by 1.3 1.4GHz processor and Android Version 2.3 this phone is the best smart-phone that Sony has ever made.

5. Samsung Galaxy Nexus

Other than this, the smart phone features a responsive 4.65″ glassy, smooth display running at 720 x 1280 HD resolution. The performance aspect is maintained substantially with its 1.2GHz dual-core processor.
6. HTC Desire S
With 1GHZ processor and upgraded 2.1 Sense UI with Android 2.3 HTC Desire S is ready to taken on to its high end predecessor. Display is a 3.7-inch responsive, smooth touch screen. Battery backup is better than its predecessor and the only thing that holds this Android smart phone is its sloppy 5 Mega-pixel camera.
7. Motorola Razr
The main highlight of this Android smart phone is its sleek design with a layer of style and feel added by its slightly protruding camera shelf. The Motrola UI in Motorola Razr is very different form other Motorola smart-phones and thus the best till date from Motorola. It is powered by 1.2 GHZ dual core processor and Android 2.3.5 and the4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display is protected sufficiently with advanced gorilla display technology.
8. Orange Monte Carlo
With 4.3” display , which runs at a decent 800×480 resolution it’s not as dazzling as the displays on similarly sized phones like the Xperia Arc, but it’s still a big, solid screen considering the budget price. It runs Android 2.3 but unfortunately that has been vandalized by orange and if you can live with that and the sloppy VGA video recording then this smart phone is best for you at an impressive price.
9. Samsung Galaxy Note
The reason this smart-phone was not introduced earlier in this post is because of its largest display ever on a smart phone. Although, the display may be regarded as cool by some but many regard such a display which actually renders the meaning of a phone useless and foolish. The smart-phone is equipped with a pressure stylus which responds well and the Android 2.3 also runs fast with 1.4GHz Dual Core Processor.
10. Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini
Quality music, adorable 3 scratch-resistant TFT touchscreen and budget price are few reasons to buy this impeccable little Android smart-phone. It is extremely fast keeping in mind its 1GHz processor and runs smoothly Android 2.3. The User interface is substantiated by the manufacturers and over all the phone is responsive and impressively functional.
