Drew Page Lumia 900- wp7.5 is awesome ( my own device). For android- Htc One X, all the way. iPhone 4S is great if you need the best of class camera.
Anonymous the lumia 900 of course! :) iphone - fragile, android - flaky. lumia 900 rock solid.
Alfrantonio Durán
Alfrantonio Durán What? HTC One X knocked to Nokia Lumia 900 of the #1? Of course, Nokia Lumia 900 flavored with WP isn't customizable and has few applications. Android=Customization=Confort. The HTC One X is excellent device but I still feel love for my SGSII and I love the new SGSIII, I'll buy at Christmas or maybe the next Nexus, with Samsung. Greetings! :-)
lb_dlb_dl The legendary HOX is the best.
1ceTr0n Whatever, Galaxy Note makes HTC X look like a glorified camera with a big screen

Saurabh Sinha Without a doubt - HTC one x. It's a killer machine. Apple is trash
Marti Ruiz
Marti Ruiz Mediocre screen zise
Anthony Bailey
Anthony Bailey Both options are laughable. Any brand new phone seems to be labeled as "the best smartphone," often times with very little of those opinions being based on actual facts, data, and specs. The One X has a good processor and ICS. That's the only thing it does better than my Galaxy Note, and either of those things are negligible in determining if a phone is better or not in real world usage. The iPhone still being touted as "the best anything," is laughable at best. The only reason why it still has even a glimmer of relevancy, is because of all the ignorant iSheep who continue to buy a grossly outdated product that's still heavily based on a phone from 2007. If no one were really buying iPhones, anymore, there would be no reviewer on earth with an IQ of at least 85, who'd be talking about how the iPhone is "the best."
Facebook user
Facebook user Mark Mann: Not all of the experts have the same top phone. The lists by the 13 experts are all aggregated and one final list is created through a points system. Just because the iPhone 4S is number one on the final list, doesn't mean we all picked it as our number one phone. There is variety in the Experts' lists. In fact, in the 13 lists, there are five different phones picked as number one and 4 of the 13 experts picked the iPhone 4S as their number one phone. You can see all of our lists here:

Joernie Berrios
Joernie Berrios I-Phones are for Girls and Old people...many people dont care or know about flashing custom ROMS or KERNELS,THEMES,etc.....thats why Andriod is far superior!
Sam Rick
Sam Rick Lol..the I phail 4S is a joke compared to the One X.experts my butt.

Rick Sievers
Rick Sievers iphone will always be a phone for girls and for people who can't operate a smartphone. I can't stand ios
Reese Woodson
Reese Woodson The iPhones 4S is the most boring overrated phone on the planet. A phone with a tiny "3.5" screen and a boring grid interface is the best phone? Ha I don't think so. Having an iPhone is more of a fad then anything.
Aaron Su
Aaron Su I like my one x so far way better than my s2 skyrocket. You can tell Samsung just slapped their crappy touchwiz on it
Mazin Nasir
Mazin Nasir Totally the oneX the 4S is just doesn't have the "new phone" feel to it you know?
Harry Smith
Harry Smith One X FTW!!!!!!!!!
Fonzy Paniagua
Fonzy Paniagua Did someone say the one x is laggy and that he's trading it for a 4s? Oh please, we all know you never owned a one x and your simplly an apple fanboy.

Corey Hockett
Corey Hockett yeah bad as the Thunderbolt was way better than the 4s before the 4s even came out. It will be the same with the iPhone 5.
Kevin Scott
Kevin Scott HTC Rezound is number one!
Gaby Piñeyro
Gaby Piñeyro I miss my Evo but Im rocking a 4S now, got tire of fragmentation, force close app. IOS isnt near android on multitasking but smart people find workarounds, plus resale value is waaay better than any android combine. Imma be selling this on Oct to rock the new iphone 5, maybe iOS will copy some other Android stuff like they did with the notifications...
Cory Musselman

Craig Oxley
Craig Oxley I read someone say Android strives to be what Apple already is. Sorry but Android is way ahead when it comes to OS, the only thing Apple are good at is simplicity in their iOS and that's what I believe Android is working towards. Android has everything you'd want in an OS and provide it already, there working on making everything available in an OS to have that simplicity, where Apple have the simplicity but lack so much in OS features & customization that I believe they are working backwards, where they started with simplicity and ar slowly bringing in more features but trying to make sure their iOS can handle more without taking away the simplicity, that's why ever iOS update only has minor add on features that Androids had for years. There ruling what you can have on their iPhone on their terms. P.S: I'm an iPhone user for the past 3 years, jumping ship on May 29th for the Samsung Galaxy SIIINAnd ICS OS, good buy Apple and your 3.5" baby screen. Do people really think their going to increase there screen to be any bigger then 4", they'll increase to 4" then keep it that size for another 4 years.
Allan De León Morales
Allan De León Morales Iphone 4s sucks! If feels outdated and boring...
Eturnus Omega Noodle
Eturnus Omega Noodle I hates my iphone when i had one. Its does have a nice smooth system and nice resolution but i hate trying to multitask with it. The os isnt for crunching through a lot of programs.
J Daniel González
J Daniel González Without a doubt, I can say iPhone 4S is still the best and most sold smartphone!! Proud owner of one!!
Ahmad Khakwany
Ahmad Khakwany And whos the expert here? Aaron? Lmao who the hell says iphone is the best.. its about opinion... But if u ask anyone witha damn functioning brain they will say one x bcz of OBVIOUS reasons...

Daniel Schmitt Oh and to top it off the specs in the phone don't really make it a great phone
Rich Bramel
Rich Bramel We all know windows will soon be catching up. My Htc One S is my best phone yet and my 4th android device. The best thing I traded my junk iphone for my one s for free!
Jason Westrupp
Jason Westrupp * experts should say, not would say...
Daniel Schmitt
Daniel Schmitt People get it through your heads the experts choose iphone the best because it just works i mean im a die hard android user so dnt get me wrong but how many times is a new android phone going to come out before they get it right? Unlike apples iphone, it just works all the time and along with the ecosystem of apple i think that's y slot of people keep going back to iphone
Jason Westrupp
Jason Westrupp The question proves the point about 'experts' with phones... They aren't objective... How is the 4S with its tiny 3.5' screen the best phone? I think the lumina 900 if it had NFC would be the killer phone otherwise I think the One X is the most killer phone released so far - why? Because it has everything a smart phone should have hardware wise crammed into the one phone on a screen size that makes it useable... Why preference for WP - ecosystem... I have a Windows PC and an Xbox... The phone integrates to both seamlessly and automatically... Exactly what a smartphone does - just lacking the NFC and the possibilities it brings with it... The experts would say phone x is best because of hardware and leave it at that - beyond that what the best phone is actually comes down to what your personal requirements are...
Mark Mann
Mark Mann No expert would pick a iphone. Only paid writers.
Rich Bramel
Rich Bramel Read forbes mag ppl get your info right.
Rich Bramel
Rich Bramel Motorola makes junk. I have bought into their garbage a few times and don't supporrt customers just like dell makes the same garbage stuff and treats ppl the same way. Apple actually has 60% more force closes then android. Its that android tells you what just happend and help devs get reports to make things better and apple just goes back to the home screen like nothing happend.

Jacob Ryan Fortner
Jacob Ryan Fortner I hate Apple for what they're doing to HTC. As far as I'm concerned, Apple can rot.
Rich Bramel
Rich Bramel I crack up when ppl talk about phones that aren't even close to market I5 or S3. Siri is a rip off from androids voice search wich has been on everyone made since the g1

David Brand
David Brand @ Michael Washington. What android phone have u used thats laggy, unorganized and cluttered?? You should b ashamed to mention wp7 in the same sentence as android. Ios is fast because its essentially the same software since the icrap premiered, circa 2007. It's old and outdsted. Android brings the innovation right away, there is no lag.
