Top Android phones: Best buys (August 2011)

PC World's best buy Android phones are a rank of the top 10 Android smartphones based on perceived value for money

Looking for an Android phone on a budget? You should look no further than PC World Australia's best buys. These Android smartphones are a rank of the top 10 handsets based on perceived value for money.

Google's Android platform has not only provided a genuine competitor for the Apple iPhone, but it has also opened up opportunities for powerful smartphones at the lower end of the market. The 10 selections in our August list are headed by the Huawei Sonic, which sells for a super low $188 in supermarket chain Woolworths and electronics retailer Dick Smith.

HTC is the most popular best buy Android phone vendor in August: four models from the Taiwanese giant made our top 10, including the Telstra-exclusive Desire S.

Huawei Sonic

The Huawei Sonic provides a reasonable features list for quite a low price. As long as you can live with its limitations, such as the lack of Flash and a poor camera, it's very hard to beat for value.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
