Want a 4G LTE smartphone on AT&T, but the HTC Vivid and Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket don't do it for you?  Take a look at the LG Nitro HD, AT&T's newest high-speed powerhouse.  Available on December 4th for $249.99, it offers a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 4.5-inch IPS true HD 720p display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, a front-facing camera, 1,830 mAh battery, and Android 2.3.5 with LG's custom user interface.  LG's Android skin isn't nearly as advanced as HTC or Samsung's, but the phone packs some nice features that makes it worth considering.

Chinmay Muttur
Chinmay Muttur I think HTC does a more finished job on their phones but as of features samsung leads.
Anonymous HTC. Although there is room for improvement: get the power control buttons under the notifications slider, where they currently have the recent apps., and fix the sound quality, get some decent mics and speakers.
Sean OSullivan
Sean OSullivan Samsung, they have quality internals and displays and their products work the way they're expected to.
Dustin Johnson
Dustin Johnson For me....Motorola. They have the best radios and I like the design of their phones....Have the Moto Photon 4g now and like the look of the DROID RAZR.

Alessandro Andrea Miragoli
Alessandro Andrea Miragoli I think HTC makes the best Android phones. But they're becoming very monotonous design-wise
Lucas Rodrigues
Lucas Rodrigues Samsung (own a Galaxy SII =], had other phones)
??? I think HTC makes the best Android phones in the market. Definitely not Moto and Samsung.
Kieryn Williams
Kieryn Williams Moto
Bridget Williams
Bridget Williams Definitely NOT LG.
Larry Waters
Larry Waters I agree with Dark Man X: it's the OS more than the phone and WP7 is the best one out there. That being said, I've gone through 5 defective HTC's in the past so I'll stick with Samsung with Mango.
Stefan Daniel
Stefan Daniel Motorola
Ionut Ciopei
Ionut Ciopei None. Wp7 is way better, iOS is over the top, so android sucks (4 me )

David McNeill
David McNeill Samsung obviously, they design and manufacture all their own components and it shows. HTC are good but they rely on what they can buy from others hence some parts are second rate I.e. lackluster screens and slower chips.

Kristian Dugan
Kristian Dugan Htc and Samsung. Motorola has good build quality but I don't like Motoblur (or whatever they call it now).
Chad Richter
Chad Richter Motorola all day long. Sense is too resource heavy and Samsung makes too many phones with too much plastic. Lg can't even make a decent basic phone let alone a smartphone (I'm talking in the last 2 years on this one)

Karin Kroll Ross
Karin Kroll Ross Motorola thus far. LG Ally was good (great price) but onboard storage was paltry so had to upgrade. If you want more than 3-5 apps that don't go to SD card on the LG Ally you are out.of luck. Droid X2 has been a breath of fresh air.
