  • Top 10 greatest Windows mobile smartphones ever that helped build Windows mobile Phones’ reputation

    Posted on April 10th, 2012 David Brooks | 11 comments

    Nowadays, the mobile phone market has been developing in a tremendous fast way to provide worldwide users more excellent and user friendly mobile devices. Many mobile phone manufacturers aroused with competitive candidates to compete with each other in the fierce smartphone market, like the Apple iPhone 4S, Samsung Galaxy Note, HTC One X, etc. which act not even a simple smartphone, but rather a multimedia player to enable you fulfill your leisure entertainment by watching HD movies on them, not even to say the freshly released Nokia Lumia 900. In the modern smartphone market, Windows mobile phones play a big role and have become more and more popular along with the improvement of Windows mobile platform, like the upcoming release of Windows 8 OS. Microsoft’s very own Windows Phone has been building a lot of buzz of late – thank primarily to the highly coveted Nokia Lumia 900. There have been so many successful Windows Phones like the Nokia Lumia 900, Samsung Focus S, Dell Venue Pro, and HTC Titan II, which all easily all stand out as the premier of the crop, but long before them, Microsoft built its reputation around its aging Windows Mobile platform. Today, what we are going to mention are the phones that ever helped build Windows mobile phones’ reputation ever. We have got a top 10 list for that. Check bellow:

    LG eXpo

    LG eXpoAfter putting out the dismal LG Incite, AT&T got itself a beauty in the LG eXpo. Aside from it sporting a landscape style QWERTY keyboard, things that made this smartphone outstanding are that this device provided business users with the functionality of a fingerprint reader and an optional pico projector attachment. It could be said that this smartphone was mostly prepared for business users.

    HTC Touch

    HTC TouchThe HTC Touch became famous because it is the first device the manufacturer planned to the high-end smartphone since the landing of original iPhone, since which many manufacturers rushed into touchscreen hysteria. The HTC Touch first established the whole customized UI thing with Windows Mobile thanks to its TouchFLO interface.

    Samsung SGH-i760

    Samsung SCH i760If you’re a button aficionado, you would surely fall in love with Samsung SCH-i760. Despite donning a boring numeric name, the Samsung SCH-i760 was covered from head-to-toe with buttons all around – thus, making it one lovable smartphone for business class users. Sure it was massive because of its built-in keyboard, but it managed to pack on a numeric keypad and sizable touchscreen as well.

    Palm Treo 700w

    Palm Treo 700wPalm Treo 700w is the very first Palm made device to run Windows Mobile – as opposed to its own platform. Indeed, some saw it as blasphemy, but nevertheless, it embodied all of the wonderful aspects we associate with a Palm device. For example, it featured that wonderful portrait style QWERTY form factor.

    Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1

    Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1Everywhere we look nowadays, Sony’s line of smartphones has the XPERIA branding on them. Some people might forget that the XPERIA line actually didn’t start off with Android, but rather, it came to light with Windows Mobile in the form of the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1. In addition to being its first Windows Mobile smartphone, it flaunted one killer industrial design on top of its high-end specs.

    Samsung OMNIA

    Samsung OMNIAActually, not only does Samsung OMNIA get the credit for being the first OMNIA branded smartphone, but it was also the first respectable high-end offering from Samsung’s camp. It featured an optical trackpad, 5-megapixel snapper, 3.2” touchscreen, and supported both DivX and XviD out of the box.

    HTC Touch Pro2

    HTC Touch Pro2Simply, it’s one of HTC’s finest smartphones ever, as it balanced things out with its impeccable design for a QWERTY based smartphone. Thankfully, HTC brought back the tilting action with its touchscreen – essentially emulating the look of a laptop. Even to this day, it has probably one of the best landscape style keyboards around.

    Toshiba TG01

    Toshiba TG01Even though Toshiba is still trying to establish itself in the smartphone market right now, we have to give the TG01 some credit for the reasoning that it was the first to market with a 1GHz processor – something that seemed so awe-inspiring back then. Running Qualcomm’s 1GHz Snapdragon chip, it exuded a sense of speed in nearly everything it did. Additionally, it managed to pack an impressive 4.1” WVGA touchscreen and this cool looking paneled UI.

    Palm Treo Pro

    Palm Treo ProIf there was a Windows Mobile smartphone gunning at the BlackBerry form factor, the Palm Treo Pro was it! We can’t think of anything sexier looking using the portrait style QWERTY form factor other than this device. Interestingly enough, it was HTC that actually manufactured the Palm Treo Pro.

    HTC HD2

    HTC HD2Frankly, the HTC HD2 was in a whole league of its own, since it featured many things we tend to see so commonplace in today’s market. Certainly, it was a larger than life smartphone for its killer industrial design, a ridiculously large 4.3” WVGA display, and 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

  • Smart mobile phones for 2011 – Top 10 Smartphones of 2011

    Posted on November 14th, 2011 David Brooks | No comments

    It is nearly the end of 2011. In the smartphones market, we have to admit that 2011 has brought quite a few excellent smartphones to world mobile phone users, especially Apple’s iOS and Google Android smartphones, which are obviously the two leaders in the smartphone market. And besides these two OS advanced smartphones, there are still many other popular smartphones for 2011, like HTC Titan, Motorola Droid RAZR, Nokia N9, etc. And thanks to Matthew Miller, who has posted a Top 10 smartphones of 2011 (Holiday Gift Guide), we could get a clear list on the top smartphones of 2011. The bellow is the original content by Matthew Miller. Since the original post is too long, so I would just list the Top 10 Smartphones bellow. Check it for details.

    1: Apple iPhone 4S

    iPhone 4SI participated in the ZDNet Great Debate for the Apple iPhone 4S, but readers overwhelmingly voted against it and many in the tech press stated it was not much of an upgrade. However, consumers responded in a big way and Apple had record opening weekend sales exceeding 4 million devices.

    I became an iPhone owner again with the iPhone 4S on Verizon and am very happy with the device. The internals were bumped up with a dual-core processor, updated antenna design, and 8 megapixel camera. The Siri artificial intelligence utility is excellent and even in beta demonstrates a new way to interact with your device. I love that I can make appointments and set alarms with a few short words and the iPhone 4S is changing the way I use my smartphone. You can also SIM unlock the Verizon iPhone 4S for true world phone usage with Sprint and AT&T having slightly different policies. I used my iPhone 4S with my Truphone SIM in London and it worked very well.

    The Apple iPhone 4S is available on AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint for $199 (16GB), $299 (32GB), and $399 (64GB) with a two-year contract. The unsubsidized, no-contract prices range from $649 (16GB) to $849 (64GB), depending on your carrier.

    2: Samsung Galaxy Nexus

    Samsung Galaxy NexusGoogle rolled out the Nexus One back in January 2010 as their flagship device that supports the latest Android operating system. The Nexus S was released last year and just last week Google and Samsung announced the Galaxy Nexus that will be coming to the U.S. with Verizon confirmed to get the device first before the end of this year.

    Unlike the previous Nexus devices, there is really nothing missing in this latest device, including the latest wireless radios. The Galaxy Nexus sports a 4.65 inch 1280×720 Super AMOLED HD display (which is perfect for you to watch HD Blu-ray movies on Nexus), LTE and HSPA+ pentaband support, Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), NFC, barometer, 1080p HD video camera, 1750 mAh battery and more. I have regularly ranted on this blog about the lack of pentaband 3G data support that currently only Nokia provides in true world phone fashion with support for frequencies in all ranges. Thankfully, the new Galaxy Nexus is a pentaband phone, with support for the 21 Mbps HSPA+ data network so it is highly likely I will be picking one up to use with T-Mobile USA.

    There is no pricing or availability yet and it sounds like it will roll out in Europe and other countries first with a Verizon LTE model coming before the end of 2011. It’s not clear if we will see one launching on AT&T or T-Mobile here in the U.S.

    3: HTC Titan

    HTC TitanReaders know I am a major Windows Phone fan and I know it hasn’t yet been adopted by a large number of Americans, but it really is fantastic and everyone I know that tries it out likes it. I was going to put one of the new Nokia Windows Phone devices here in 3rd, but none are coming to the U.S. this year so I am throwing in the HTC Titan that is coming to AT&T soon, likely in November. I finally had a chance to try out the HTC Titan this week and even though the display is huge, it is quite thin and extremely well made.

    The HTC Titan has a massive 4.7 inch Super LCD display at the same standard 800×480 resolution that still looks crisp and clear. It has a 1.5 GHz processor, 16GB integrated storage, 512MB RAM, 1600 mAh battery, HSPA+ radio (up to 14.4 Mbps downloads), and 8 megapixel camera. HTC had done work with their cameras and it is actually quite good.

    4: Motorola Droid RAZR

    Motorola Droid RAZRThe Motorola RAZR was an iconic device that launched at quite a high price and still sold millions. Motorola’s original DROID put Android on the map and launched it to its current success. They decided to launch a new RAZR based on the Android OS and what sets it apart from their current offerings is that it is the thinnest LTE device, and one of the thinnest Android devices, available.

    The Motorola Droid RAZR has all of the latest specifications, including LTE radio, Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread, 4.3 inch 540×960 Super AMOLED display, dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, 1780 mAh battery, Bluetooth 4.0, 8 megapixel camera, 16GB internal storage and microSD card slot.

    The Motorola Droid RAZR will be available for $299.99 with a 2-year contract in November on Verizon Wireless.

    5: Nokia N9

    Nokia N9The Nokia N9 is one of the saddest stories in the mobile world since the hardware and MeeGo operating system are fantastic and show a lot of promise, but the device is likely the last MeeGo device we will see from Nokia. If you check out all the other reviews online you will see that people love the Nokia N9. It is not available in very many countries and will not be sold by Nokia here in the U.S.

    You can check out my<Nokia N9 first impressions and a follow-up article I posted on several tips, tricks, and FAQs. Specifications of the Nokia N9 include the MeeGo 1.2 (Harmattan) operating system, pentaband 3G radio, 1 GHz Cortex A8 processor, 3.9 inch FWVGA 854×480 pixels AMOLED display with anti-glare polarizer and Gorilla Glass integration, 1 GB RAM, 16 and 64 GB internal memory options, 8 megapixel camera with dual-LED flash and Carl Zeiss optics, NFC, and more.

    The Nokia N9 is only available in select countries, but can be found through importers from about $750 to $900 for the 16GB and 64GB models, respectively. I purchased my own 16GB blue N9 from a reseller on ebay.

    6: HTC Amaze 4G

    HTC Amaze 4GOne of the complaints I have always had with HTC devices was the poor camera quality, but thankfully this area is being addressed by HTC in a big way. There is a lot of promotion and advertisement of the camera on the HTC Amaze 4G and as I posted in my camera roundup the Amaze 4G really is fantastic. In addition to the great camera, it is one of the best designed HTC smartphones I have ever held in my hand and feels like a very high quality device.

    Specifications of the HTC Amaze 4G include Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread, HSPA+ on T-Mobile at 42.2 Mbps, 4.3 inch qHD 540×960 pixels Super LCD display, 8 megapixel camera with f/2.2 aperture lens and 1080p video recording capability, NFC, DLNA and HDMI, 1730 mAh battery, Bluetooth 3.0, and much more.

    The HTC Amaze 4G is available now for $259.99 with a minimum voice and data plan with 2-year contract after a $50 mail-in rebate. The full retail price is $559.99 with no contract.

    7: LG Thrill

    LG ThrillOne of the features shown off this year that seemed to be more gimmicky than anything is the glasses-free 3D display found on a few new smartphones. While it may seem a bit silly for day-to-day usage, it is actually fun to use and when I tested out the EVO 3D my daughters had a blast recording videos in 3D. The LG Thrill is not only one of the best 3D devices, it is also a solid high end Android device that competes with the best of them.

    Specifications for the LG Thrill include a 4.3 inch glasses free 3D display, 1 GHz dual core processor, dual 5 megapixel cameras, 8GB integrated storage and microSD card, and HSPA+ support.

    The LG Thrill is available now on AT&T for $99.99 with a 2-year contract. It is priced at $449.99 with no contract.

    8: Motorola Droid Bionic

    Motorola Droid BionicThe Motorola Droid Bionic is one of the best LTE devices on Verizon Wireless and Jason Perlow made a great case for the device in comparison to the Apple iPhone 4S. The Droid Bionic sports a high resolution (540×960 pixels) 4.3 inch display, dual-core 1GHz processor, 8 megapixel camera, large capacity 1930 mAh battery, integrated 16GB of memory and microSD card slot, and support for the LTE network.

    9: Samsung Galaxy S II

    Samsung Galaxy S 2The Samsung Galaxy S II was released several months ago in various countries and is just now making its way to the U.S. carriers. It is a very successful device and I enjoyed my time with the T-Mobile version. The Galaxy S II sports an amazing 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Plus display (4.52 inches on T-Mobile and Sprint), dual-core 1 GHz processor, Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) OS, 8 megapixel camera, integrated memory and microSD card, 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, and more.

    The Galaxy S II is a large device, but it is light and thin. The quality feels better than any previous Samsung Galaxy device I have used and I know people will be purchasing it in large numbers on the three U.S. carriers.

    It is available on T-Mobile for $229.99 with a 2-year plan and $50 mail-in rebate ($529.99 with no contract) and on AT&T for Sprint’s model is known as Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch (what a crazy name, huh?) and comes with WiMAX, a 4.52 inch display, and 1.2 GHz processor with a contract price of $199.99 or $499.99 with no contract.

    10: BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930

    BlackBerry Bold 9900I jumped on the BlackBerry Bold 9930 at launch and was excited about it for a couple of weeks before jumping back off the bandwagon and think RIM needs to step it up in 2012 to be competitive with the other mobile platforms. I enjoyed using the BlackBerry PlayBook with QNX-based operating system and there is a lot of promise for smartphones running this OS in 2012.

    Specifications for the BlackBerry Bold 9930 include a 2.8 inch touchscreen display, a 1.2 GHz single core processor, 5 megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, 8GB onboard storage with microSD card support up to 32GB, 768 MB RAM (something like 256MB is used for GPU), optical trackpad, promixity sensor, accelerometer, compass, and BlackBerry OS 7 that provides voice-activated universal search, new web browser, huge collection of pre-installed apps, and much more.

    The Bold 9900/9930 has the BEST QWERTY keyboard ever on a device and if you are a hardware keyboard fan then you will enjoy using this device. It is quite expensive for a BlackBerry smartphone though with a price of $299.99 with a $50 mail-in rebate on T-Mobile (full no contract price is $599.99), $199.99 with contract on Sprint ($499.99 full retail price), and $249.99 on Verizon with a contract ($509.99 full retail price).

  • Apple plans another Apple Fever by launching iPhone 4S in China and other places

    Posted on November 2nd, 2011 David Brooks | 35 comments

    According to the latest reports, Apple is preparing another Apple Fever in China and other countries by launching Apple iPhone 4S in these areas on November 11th. The report said that “Apple today announced that it will launch the iPhone 4S in Hong Kong, South Korea and 13 other countries on Nov. 11, with pre-orders starting this Friday.” This Apple Fever debut of iPhone 4S in those markets will bump up to 29 the number of countries where the iPhone 4S is available. Apple has pledged to sell the new smartphone in 70 countries by the end of 2011.

    iPhone 4SGreater China (refer to Taiwan and the People’s Republic, including Hong Kong) is an increasingly important contributor to Apple’s bottom line: In the quarter that ended Sept. 30, the region accounted for 16% of all Apple revenues, up from 13% the quarter before and a nearly four-fold increase from the same period in 2010. “[China] is growing at a feverish pitch,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, during last month’s earnings call with Wall Street analysts.

    One iPhone 4S sticking point in the Greater China market is that its most touted feature, Siri, is not yet able to understand commands spoken in either Mandarin or Cantonese. Apple has promised to add Chinese, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Spanish to the three languages Siri current supports — English, French and German — next year.

    Aside from the Siri feature, other sparkling features also attract China smart mobile phone users: dual core A5 processor for faster and better processing; iOS 5 operating system with more than 200 features; up to 1080P video recording and playback for users to freely watch HD Blu-ray movies on iPhone 4S; Retina Display with so high pixel density that users could freely play HD video on iPhone 4S with ease for ultra HD video playback; iCloud to store music, photos, apps, mail, contacts, calendars, documents, and more.

    Places Apple is preparing to launch iPhone 4S during this Apple Fever include: Hong Kong, South Korea, Albania, Armenia, Bulgaria, El Salvador, Greece, Guatemala, Malta, Montenegro, New Zealand, Panama, Poland, Portugal and Romania.

  • Galaxy Nexus vs. iPhone 4S vs. Droid RAZR – Which one meets you most

    Posted on October 25th, 2011 David Brooks | 5 comments

    After the release of Apple iPhone 4S, users have been more or less disappointed as it should be the iPhone 5 in their guess. Many smart phone companies might think this would be a nice opportunity to compete with iPhone 4S for more market shall, with various full-featured smart mobile phones released in the following period of this year, like Google’s Galaxy Nexus and Motorola Droid RAZR. If you are still wandering on which smart phone to buy in the market among these three phones, you should take a careful look on the blog written by Daniel Ionescu, from PCWorld, who wrote a blog post on PCWorld about the comparison among the three popular smartphones: Galaxy Nexus, iPhone 4S and Droid RAZR. Read the following post to get the detailed information.

    iPhone 4S vs. Galaxy Nexus vs. Droid RGoogle’s Galaxy Nexus is the latest addition to this year’s hot smartphone line-up, alongside the iPhone 4S and the Droid RAZR. Unveiled last night, the Galaxy Nexus, manufactured by Samsung, embodies Google’s idea of the perfect smartphone, together with the brand-new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich mobile OS.

    But does the Galaxy Nexus stand a chance against Apple’s iPhone 4S, which is currently selling like hot cakes, or the skinny Droid RAZR, also unveiled this week?

    The first thing you’ll notice on the Galaxy Nexus is the huge, curved 4.65-inch display, which is larger than the 4.3-inch one found on the Droid RAZR, and considerably bigger than the 3.5-inch display on the iPhone 4S. The Galaxy Nexus display doesn’t skimp on pixel density either; it has a 1280- by-720 pixel resolution, the highest in the comparison. The iPhone display however, still retains the highest pixel density at 330 ppi, a slight lead over the 316 ppi screen of the Galaxy Nexus.Galaxy Nexus

    The Galaxy Nexus is also very thin, but not thinner than the Droid RAZR (8.84 mm on the Nexus compared to 7.1 mm on the RAZR), which makes the iPhone 4S look a bit bulky at 9.3 mm. The Droid RAZR is also the lightest smartphone out of the bunch at 127 grams, while the iPhone 4S is the most compact given its smaller screen size.

    Inside, the Galaxy Nexus, the Droid RAZR and the iPhone 4S run on the latest dual-core processors, namely 1.2GHz dual-core on the Android side, and 1GHz dual-core on the iPhone 4S. The Android phones also run on 1GB of RAM, while the iPhone 4S features half that amount. As for storage, all three phones come with 16GB of built-in memory, so you have plenty of space for your apps and media. The Galaxy Nexus and iPhone 4S come in 32GB flavors, too, or even up to 64GB at the high end for the 4S, which doesn’t have a MicroSD card slot for expandable storage. The Droid RAZR also comes with a 16GB MicroSD card included, so the total of bundled storage is bumped to 32GB.

    Galaxy Nexus Chart updateIn the multimedia department, you won’t run out of options with either of these phones. The Droid RAZR and the iPhone 4S have 8-megapixel cameras at the back that can record full HD 1080p video. The Galaxy Nexus can also record 1080p video, but, surprisingly, Samsung put only a 5-megapixel shooter on Google’s phone, which is less than what we have seen on other phones from the manufacturer, such as the Galaxy SII. All three phones also have video chat cameras on the front.

    If you’re looking for extra tricks from your phone, the Galaxy Nexus might be what you’re looking for. Out of the three phones, the Nexus is the only device with Near Field Communication support, which allows you to make wireless payments (at a small, but growing list of retailers), as well as to beam contacts, websites, apps or maps to other NFC-enabled devices by just bringing the phones together and making them touch.

    Well, the Apple iPhone 4S has been finally in shipment and available for all Apple fans since October 14th. It is unavoidable for users and testers to make comparison between this new Apple iPhone and other smart mobile phones like Android OS smart mobile phones and other smart mobile phones. Here, I have collected some test news reports about iPhone 4S hardware and software utilities, based on comparisons with other popular smart mobile phones by some testers. These tests would help you to decided whether to buy the Apple iPhone 4S or not. Check the following tests bellow to get more detailed acknowledgement about iPhone 4S.

    Ⅰ After the iPhone 4S, Android just feels wrong – By James Kendrick on ZDNet.

    Summary: As a long-time happy Android phone user, it surprises me that it only took using the iPhone 4S for a few days to point out that using Android just feels wrong.

    I just made a comparison between his long time used Nexus S 4G Android phone and the only a short time using iPhone 4S, only to realized that after using the smooth, polished iPhone 4S that Android just feels wrong. The user experience was jangling my nerves. The inconsistencies in the interface between apps and the occasional lag doing simple things like scrolling in windows just screamed at me. I hadn’t really noticed it before, but after using the iPhone these things jump out at me.
    Nexus SIn just a few days with the iPhone 4S and iOS 5 I had come to expect operation to be fluid and consistent system-wide. That’s just not the case with Android, and every little interruption in smooth operation now accumulates into a feeling of frustration as I use the phone.
    The biggest area of discontent is in web browsing, one of the primary things I do with a smartphone. I have long found stock Android browsers to be lacking, not in a major way but in fluid operation. That never bothered me as the strength of Android is the number of apps available, and third party browsers stepped in and served my needs just fine. Or so I thought.
    The lack of fluid operation in Android may be due to the OS, or perhaps it is hardware related. It might be due to better apps on the iPhone, or tighter control by Apple over them. I really don’t care as a user; I want the best user experience I can get. The good one delivered by the iPhone 4S makes it clear to me how wanting the Android experience actually is. It just feels wrong.

    ⅡIf not for Siri, would we care about the iPhone 4S? – By Joel Evans on ZDNet

    Summary: The iPhone 4S is selling like crazy, but its hardware enhancements alone are not worth the upgrade

    When I sit two days after receiving my iPhone 4S after several days of its arrival, I don’t have the excitement in my body that I’ve had in year’s past, probably because I didn’t wait in line for hours to get my hands on the new iPhone, not to mention that it wasn’t revolutionary, like previous upgrades have been. That said, the camera is faster, the pictures look sharper, and the phone is much faster overall, and of course, notification center is a must-have.
    iPhone 4S SiriOne really cool thing about the 4S, though, is its implementation of Siri. Without any training, anyone can ask it just about anything. This has proven to be the most interesting part, since my seven year old sent a text message to a friend of mine via his voice and then remarked, “Wow! I didn’t know your iPhone could talk!” Of course, my wife’s reaction was to be expected with her usual, “that is so annoying”, when Siri misinterpreted a statement I made.
    The above has me wondering if it hadn’t been for Siri, would the iPhone 4S be yet another upgrade and something that most users would pass on? Did analysts and reporters initially call the iPhone 4S a dud after the keynote because it hadn’t been introduced by Steve Jobs, who could make a different colored piece of paper a must-have for everyone with white paper?
    I think that right now people hear about Siri and think, “my Android phone does that”. But as they read more about Siri and hear people literally talking to their iPhone, more people will take notice and pick up Apple’s latest offering.
    One more thing: if you’re wondering what kind of things you can say to Siri and what responses you might receive, check out shitsirisays.com.

    Ⅲ Samsung Galaxy S II beats iPhone 4S in smartphone drop test (video) – By Ricardo Bilton on ZDNet

    Summary: As this video shows, a few drops to the pavement can’t save Apple’s latest blockbuster.

    The launch of Apple’s iPhone 4S may have been successful, but how well does the device fare in a drop test?
    That’s the question that gadget warranty provider SquareTrade aimed to answer in the video posted below. Pitting Apple’s latest device against the Galaxy S II, the test nets some fairly surprising results, with the screen on the Galaxy S II standing firm despite being dropped from a few feet above the ground. The iPhone 4S isn’t quite so lucky.
    For smartphone owners the drop test is likely the most important one of all, considering that, besides water damage, drop-induced trauma is probably the most likely cause of cell phone destruction. So if you are looking for a phone that can take its share of beatings, then the Galaxy S II is probably the right choice for you.
