With the unveiling of Android in 2007, Google officially launched the open-standard era for mobile devices. Currently, Android commands a staggering 59 percent market share of smartphones worldwide, with 1 million activations per day. Companies such as Intel, Motorola, Qualcomm, Samsung Electronics, Sprint Nextel and T-Mobile actively participate in the Open Handset Alliance consortium that continues to produce Android products. There are so many products out there now that it may be difficult to stay on top of the latest, most popular brands. Fortunately, Ranker.com is happy to help you narrow the choices with a "Best Android Phones" list. Covering categories such as tech, business, entertainment and sports, Ranker posts thousands of "crowd ranked" lists, which command more than 600,000 monthly user votes. Because users are still allowed to vote on the list—which means that you can too—rankings are subject to change.
