    I use the HTC Incredible.

    As for apps that don't come with the phone, I use:

    Local news/weather app
    FM Radio (I think this came with it)
    Pandora
    EasyTether (freaking great!)

    Internet works great on the phone so I use that instead of most web based apps.

    I'm impatiently waiting for my local carrier to roll out the HTC Desire, which one of the guys in the know tipped me was coming "this fall sometime." Hate waiting!

    I almost didn't revive this thread. Seems like TPU likes 'em some Android.

    It's gorgeous, kinda heavy though, but IMO worth every penny.

    Heh, you've not used webOS then, shame the phones are such crappy build quality (I own 2) :\

    Only complaint I have with my Hero is the crappy camera.

    To be fair though, I've yet to find a truely good mobile camera, even the 5MP on my Streak isn't that good.

    The useless battery life is what I dislike about mine, it's the mutt's nuts apart from that though! I've added most of the people to the list who've posted, erocker's getting added in a minute.
    Edit: That T-Shirt is super awesome!

    The Moto ZN5 (Kodak 5MP) was also a decent camera, but they still can't beat proper cameras. I can't wait until wide-aperture lenses find their way on to phones :)

    Haha, I got 2 Pre's (Selling one) and I still use my Pre as my main phone, webOS is just too nice an OS for me to give up.

    They should start selling professional camera's with phone's built into them imo :D Since size isn't that much of an issue it could work.

    I'll be joining you lot once the Droid X has been released in the UK. If it doesn't get released in the UK I'll have to decide on the Galaxy S I9000 or something else, any recommendations?

    My brother inlaw (from Manchester) has a Samsung Memoir. He is a professional film editor yet he loves this camera with a phone in it.

    EDit I just found out the memoir uses TW. no wonder he can zoom around my phone.

    I think my friend has the samsung omnia. The features on the camera are superb and the quality and smoothness is amazing.

    No idea about the droid x (tho it's an awesome phone) but the galaxy S is imo the best android smart phone in the uk atm. However we should be seeing 1.5ghz phones soon and maybe even 2ghz by the end of the year so might be worth waiting a bit more.

    just hope the next wave of phones actually all get released in the uk :/ (wish i had an evo 4g :p)

    You don't wish you had a evo4g. The only good thing about that phone is the wimax radio. Snapdragon v Hummingbird in the galaxy S. I agree with you about the galaxy s (the vibrant is a galaxy s).

    Thanks for the link. I always like seeing what the rest of the world has to offer in tech, but it's usually much more scattered information than this. And I like the winner choice :)

    Anybody else notice that they chose majority Android phones? I'm so excited for Android and its future!
