Half of 2011 may have already passed us by, but despite a wealth of new smartphones already hitting the shelves, there is no signs of the mobile world slowing down. Plenty more smartphones are set to launch later this year, most of them including dual-core processors and large, high-resolution screens. Some, like the [[artnid:401249|Samsung Galaxy Note]] offer something new, while others like [[artnid:401265|HTC's Sensation XE]] and the [[artnid:392409|Sony Ericsson XPERIA Ray]] are a refresh or refinement of current models. Perhaps the most anticipated is the [[artnid:404644|Samsung Galaxy Nexus]], the first smartphone to run the 4.0 "Ice Cream Sandwich" version of Google's mobile operating system. Motorola has also brought back the iconic [[artnid:404632|RAZR]] and this time it's thinner than ever.
1 / 8
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is without a doubt the best Android phone on the market right now and the best Android phone that's ever been released. The camera could use a boost in quality, the low speaker volume is annoying and battery life isn't outstanding but the Galaxy Nexus combines a gorgeous screen with slick software and super fast performance. The best phone of 2011.
