12. Acer Liquid

Key features: 3.5-inch TFT capacitive screen, 1 GHz Scorpion processor, Android Froyo OS, QWERTY keyboard, hotspot capability, and 5MP camera

Complex says: Many wouldn’t expect much from an Acer smarthphone, but with a sharp 3.5-inch multitouch screen, contact synchronization, and Google’s Android operating system running the show, the Liquid functions and runs just as smooth as a mini PC. It features a well-organized messaging application that keeps track of discussions through communication threads. In addition, it offers pre-loaded apps like the NemoPlayer media player that supports audio, video playback, photo slide shows, and live streaming of YouTube videos. Smooth.
