The Samsung-made, Verizon-offered, Google-branded Galaxy Nexus was the first phone to receive Ice Cream Sandwich. The smartphone runs a pure version of it. There's reportedly no Samsung user interface skin on top. It's exactly how Google designed it. It also needs to be said: This phone's display is a gigantic 4.65 inches.
Samsung Galaxy S II
The Samsung Galaxy S II is offered by T-Mobile and features a 4.52-inch display, an 8-megapixel camera on the back, access to 4G speed, and the ability to stream movies or live TV to other devices.
Motorola Droid Razr
Recalling Motorola's feature phone glory days, its Razr smartphone has a 4.3-inch display and a dual-core processor. The smartphone is also said to be Kevlar strong and smart about battery life. It can also hop on Verizon's 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) network.
Motorola Droid Razr Maxx
The Maxx is a slightly thicker and heavier version of the Razr with markedly better battery life. It gets 379 hours of standby time to the Razr's 204 hours and 1,290 minutes of use to the Razr's 750 minutes. It's also available from Verizon.
HTC Amaze 4G
The most distinguishing feature of the 4G-enabled Amaze 4G from T-Mobile is its camera, which is an 8-megapixel affair said to produce print-worthy photos. It can take panoramic shots and "bursts" of shots, to make sure you get the best one. There's also a Perfect Pics album for ranking snaps and showing them off.
Motorola Droid Xyboard 8.2
The Xyboard tablet features, naturally, an 8.2-inch display and is equal parts gaming device, e-reader, movie screen, home entertainment controller, music machine and digital universe controller, able to access all types of files from a user's computer. It's available on the Verizon network.
LG Optimus 2X
The Optimus 2X ushered in the trend of dual-core processors on smartphones. Its Nvidia processor is said to be super speedy, making it super good at multitasking, games, downloads and, via a High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) cable, using it to mirror content onto an HDMI television.
LG Optimus LTE
With the Optimus LTE, LG introduced another first: a high-definition display on an LTE-equipped smartphone—or, "superphone," as the company prefers to call it. Its 4.5-inch HD IPS display has a resolution of 1,280 by 720 and 329 pixels per inch (ppi).
Motorola Xoom 2
When Motorola introduced the Xoom, its rounded-edge answer to the iPad, it was missing a few key features—most notably Adobe Flash support—which were remedied with the update to Android 3.1 and then 3.2. When the 10.1-inch tablet gains ICS, expect even more deliciousness.
Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S
In December, Sony Ericsson announced that its entire 2011 Xperia portfolio will be receiving the ICS update. Starting at end of March or in early April, it will roll out first to the Xperia Art S, Neo V and Xperia Ray. In late April or early May, Xperia Arc, Play, Neo, Mini, Mini Pro and Pro owners should expect 4.0, along with Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman.
