    What type/brand of cell phone would you recommend?

    It's that time again... I am getting a new cell phone. Which do you recommend?

    I am seeking a phone with such additional functionalities as, call blocking, camera, video, text, music files, headset plugin, web browsing, email, call log, voice dialing, recorder, games, storage card, USB plugin, flashlight, typing, notes, calendar, calculator, ring tones, phone book, gps, alarm clock, etc... A touch screen, 4G with an android platform would be nice. Phone service provider is irrelevant. Thanks for your suggestions.

    I'd like to recommend Samsung Galaxy II or HTC Thunderbolt. Here is my review on Samsung S II: http://hubpages.com/hub/Samsung-Galaxy-SII-Review

    Motorola makes some decent phones as well as Samsung and HTC.  I am really digging the Google phones (G2 is the latest I believe).  Definitely stick with Android as I find it to be far superior to any Apple product (and believe me I have used both so I know what I am talking about).

    Blackberry is a great phone. The monthly plans are expensive - around $80 for all the data and stuff - but it's a great phone and easy to use. No touchscreen though.  Mine is through Sprint. I had a touchscreen samsung phone that was utter crap, but I'm sure there are some good ones.

    Depends on how much cancer causing radiation you want.  Either way you go though, try to get a wired ear piece, other wise you will be cooking your brain every time you put that thing to your head.  I read your profile, you said you like to think so, I suggest my hub "Attack of the Killer Cell Phones."  Based on the question you asked here, I think you'll be happy.

    Nokia, because it is reliable, it has all the things that I need.

    You can go for Apple and Nokia product. I think they are the most reliable and can fulfill  your requirement with a reasonable price.

    I am an android user using HTC Desire. I may not be in the position to advise you since HTC Desire is a year old already. Technology changes every day, a year's tech seems like a junk already.

    My wife just bought an iPhone. Hence, I am able to compare both of them. Just by looking at the specs, they are both with similar hardware except that iPhone has 16/32GB internal storage compared to HTC's 150MB available internal storage.

    Though the specs are similar, iPhone performs far better and faster than HTC Desire. Maybe because it doesn't support widgets, and all those fancy settings. I don't see a cluttered screen would have much help especially it slows down the unit.

    Last couple of weeks, I have been reading reviews about tablets. There are a dozens out there now and the one that really stands out is still iPad2. I have tried and tested HTC Flyer, Galaxy Tab, Acer Iconia and they just couldn't match the speed of iPad2. Although they are of similar hardware spec, iPad2 just works smoother.

    A lot of people are concerning about the amount of RAM. Figures are just numbers and most importantly is that all hardware and software work together well. You can have all the harddrive space in the world but it's useless if you do not know how to manage it.

    Sorry to have said so much as you have clearly prefer Android. I just like to share my experience. Forget about the Anti or Fan stuffs. What's important is that it works well.

    I would suggest that you go to your local store and try out the phones.
