Top rated Android phones: August 2011

PC World's top rated Android phones are a rank of the top 10 Android smartphones based on review scores by the PC World Australia editorial team

Looking for a new Android phone? Why not start with our top rated selections? These Android smartphones are a rank of the top 10 products based on review scores by the PC World Australia editorial team.

Our August top rated list is headed by the excellent Samsung Galaxy S II, which scored a whopping 4.75/5 stars. Its followed closely by HTC's flagship Sensation, which is exclusively sold through Telstra. HTC is the most popular Android smartphone vendor in August, with its flagship Sensation joining the Incredible S, the Facebook inspired ChaCha, and the popular Desire HD, still a top seller at Vodafone.

We test all smartphones accurately and to the highest standards, so that our readers are as informed as possible. Our review process is designed to ensure that smartphones are assessed equally. The basic criteria used by our reviewers includes value, features, performance and design. We rate each product using a five-star scale, with one star being poor, and five stars being highly recommended.

Motorola Atrix

The Motorola Atrix doesn't stray too far from the norm once you look past its dual-core processor and fingerprint reader, but it is a slick, super-fast Android phone with good battery life. Anyone after a new Android phone with a big screen should definitely consider the Atrix; we just hope Motorola gives Atrix users the latest Android updates.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
