The 5 best smartphones of 2011

Mobile phones have come a long way since the first hand-held phone made on April 1973 by Motorla, then the cell phones were quite large and had only one purpose dialing and receiving calls. These days their application in every day life has greatly increased and they have become an every day accessory.

In this post we'll be reviewing 5 of the best smartphones released in 2011 :

The HTC Rezound (Verzion Wireless)

 While it may have a hefty build, the HTC Rezound's beautiful display, commendable performance, and multimedia-rich features make it a top phone for Verizon customers.

Pros: The HTC Rezound has a gorgeous 4.3-inch 720p HD display, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel rear camera with dual-LED flash, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and Verizon's 4G/LTE speeds. It ships with a pair of Beats earbuds along with a Beats Audio algorithm designed to enhance audio quality.

Cons:The HTC Rezound is quite bulky and call quality could be better. The Beats Audio software can only be toggled in the Music app.

Price - 299,99 $

The iPhone 4S

The iPhone 4S isn't the king of cell phones, but it's part of the royal family nonetheless. Even without 4G and a giant screen, this phone's smart(ass) voice assistant, Siri, the benefits of iOS 5, and its spectacular camera make it a top choice for anyone ready to upgrade.

Pros: Apple's iPhone 4S has a faster processor and an upgraded camera, all the benefits of iOS 5, and a useful and immensely fun voice assistant. Call quality on the Sprint model is admirable, and the data speeds, while certainly not 4G, get the job done.

It's about time we get a larger screen. The screen the iPhone currently has is too small when you take in consideration what the other smartphones offer.

Prices - 399.99 $

Motorola Droid Razr (Verzion wireless)

With its razor-thin design, jam-packed features, and blazing speed, the Motorola Droid Razr is easily one of the year's top Android smartphones.

Pros: The Motorola Droid Razr has an attractive, slim, and lightweight design that is also water repellent and scratch resistant. It has a fantastic 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced display, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, Verizon's 4G/LTE speeds, plenty of multimedia features, corporate and government grade security, Webtop functionality, and decent battery life.

The Motorola Droid Razr's large size might feel awkward in small hands; we expected better picture quality from its 8-megapixel camera; and the battery is not removable.

Price - 799.99 $

Samsung Galaxy S II (AT&T)

With its dual-core processor, vibrant display, and great performance, the sleek and powerful Samsung Galaxy S II rises as AT&T's top Android smartphone.

Pros: The Samsung Galaxy S II boasts a beautiful display and a thin design. With a dual-core processor, the Gingerbread device delivers fast performance, as well as good battery life. Camera quality is excellent.

Cons: Some parts of the phone feel flimsy.

Price - 199.99 $

Samsung Galaxy Nexus

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is a big step forward for Android, but it's not the giant leap you may have been expecting. As impressive as it is, Ice Cream Sandwich can be messy, and without it, the Galaxy Nexus is just another Android device.

Pros:The Samsung Galaxy Nexus brings a ton of new and very welcome features with Ice Cream Sandwich. The design is sharp, the screen is gorgeous, and the internal performance is fantastic.

Ice Cream Sandwich has eliminated some of Android's learning curve in some aspects, just to re-create it in others. There was some static on calls, and like other Samsung Galaxy devices, the Galaxy Nexus feels rather fragile.

Price - 869.99 $
