Who's making the best Android phones?
-Are some manufacturers doing a better job than others at making these phones?
HTC just makes really quality stuff... might not have the best screen or "fastest" processor (they actually have the fastest processor when you factor Android into the equation, and not just pure potential), but they have very high quality of everything top to bottom, especially fit and finish.
This is the kind of info you can't find in the specs.
More than once, I have been horrified, after making a decision based on specifications, that I have bought a poorly thought-out, badly put together device!
What do you think about battery life? I read comment of folks not being able to get through a day with some phones. Surely this is only with very heavy use, eh?
But yeah, Androids and battery life don't mix too well.
Simply looking at battery usage, my display was on for 3-4 hours every day (aka I was using it 3-4 hours)... I take the phone off charger at 8AM and it goes back on at midnightish... never had a problem with any of those phones making it that long.
Only time I feel a battery crunch is excessive web surfing or video playing.
