In this Five on Friday segment, I'm talking about my favorite Android smartphones.  The pace of Android is absurd; every month, there are countless releases.  It's important to note that this list only includes phones that are released as of today (so sadly, no Galaxy S 4 on this list).  Beyond that, the list includes popular manufacturers that you'd expect to be on the list - HTC and Samsung primarily, though there are a few surprises.  Regardless of where your Android loyalties lie, you'll probably like at least one smartphone in this list.

Let me know which smartphones you'd put in your list @PhoneDog_Aaron!  Have a great weekend.
