  • 8-megapixel camera shoots 1080p video

  • HSPA+ speeds have been consistently strong
Cons
  • No notification light
  • Battery life is decent, but still falls behind devices like the iPhone

Summary

The T-Mobile G2x is one of the best Android smartphones on the market at the moment.  As if the dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor wasn't enough, the upgrade to stock Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) makes the phone fly through everyday tasks with ease.  Seriously, it's unusually fast.  The 4-inch display, while nothing special, is an excellent balance between 3.7 and 4.3 inches, and the 8-megapixel camera does an excellent job shooting 1080p video.  It comes in behind the HTC Amaze 4G and Samusng Galaxy S II, but if you're buying now and want a stock Android experience, the G2x is the way to go.
