21. HTC Vivid

Carrier/Price: AT&T, $200

In comparison to HTC's other enticing 2011 selections, the Vivid was clearly the unattractive fat chick at the Android ball. But under the generic appearance lies one of the most powerful pieces of mobile hardware on the market. With strong LTE coverage, a speedy 1.2GHz dual-core chip, and a sharp 4.5-inch Super qHD LCD capable of 520 X 960-pixel resolution, AT&T's handset is a mobile work mule. Software-wise, the HTCSense.com portal provides users the ability to utilize a number of remote features such as locking, locating, or wiping the phone data from a computer. The phone is also due for an Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade in the near future. Guess beauty is skin deep after all.
