16. HTC Amaze 4G

Carrier/Price: T-Mobile, $230

Some say HTC repackaged the MyTouch 4G Slide with an stronger cover and higher price tag. There's some truth to that, though the Amaze 4G packs some niftier features not found on the slide-out alternative. We're talking a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S3 dual-core that runs the show and faster 4G speeds peaking near 14Mbps throughout most of NYC. HTC bundles great photo editing software as new shooting modes like SweepShot and BurstShot let users snap panoramic shots or multiple images in quick fashion. Unlike its brother, the Amaze 4G brings more internal memory (12GB) and leaves room for additional storage via microSD card slot.
