Top 5 Android Phones

The Android system has not yet been able to take its geek image completely, but it is on its way to becoming the most popular platform among smartphones. Now, in its third year, Google's operating system is able to attract the most tech-savvy users while still infecting the average user with a beautiful and pleasing interface.With more than one Android device being launched per month, it's hard to keep track of which ones are the best and newest. To help you with this task, we have listed below the top 5 Android devices that are available today in the national market.

Motorola Atrix

The first dual-core mobile phone launched in Brazil came out in the market. The main differential of Motorola's flagship handset is its docks. Multimedia support has HDMI output and USB ports for connecting keyboard, mouse and other peripherals and is included by default when purchasing the device.In addition to this dock, the device also has the car holder, turning it into a multimedia center in your car (sold separately). Another differential is the possibility of purchasing the lapdock, which practically converts the phone into a netbook. However, the price seems to be disproportionate to what this option offers.As for performance, the Atrix s loses to the Samsung Galaxy S II. However, the battery still lacks in longevity and the 5MP camera is no longer among the best.

The charm of Sony Ericsson is very evident in this handset. With its curved body and construction using quality materials, the Xperia Arc certainly stands out from the competition for its design and elegance.Despite being the only single-core processor listed, its performance leaves nothing to be desired. On the contrary, Sony's interface does a great job in managing programs and processes.Another striking feature in Sony Ericsson phones is also not left out of this model, which is its powerful 8MP camera.

It is capable of playing up to eight hours of video without interruption. But not all are flowers in this model.

With HDMI output and a high quality 8MP camera, the handset is also very attractive to the consumer.But the Optimus 2X must have trouble gaining its space. It comes at the same cost as Samsung and LG's lack of tradition against other brands in this market still noticeable in building its software that does not have the same stability as other handsets.
