25. HTC EVO Shift 4G

Carrier/Price: Sprint, $50

The EVO 4G set the mold for one of the best-selling handset makers by incorporating dynamic hardware, 4G capability, and a ginormous, stunning display into one Android offering. Somehow HTC squeezed a majority of the dope elements from its forebear into the downsized Shift 4G, while making significant strides with the sturdy slide-out keyboard and vastly improved battery. Smaller is definitely better, as the 3.6-inch screen produces good picture quality and makes for a comfortable fit in pocket. One of the EVO 4G's major issues was its overexposed display, but HTC's heavy-duty construction protects the fragile exterior from any sudden impact. Say peace to one of the last great QWERTY smartphones of this Android generation.
