    My vote goes to the HD2, if you voted for the HD7, same thing (Primarily), different OS.

    I voted for other for the HD2…it freaking runs the Evo, MT4G, Nexus One, Desire, and DesireHD software!!!! Plus RAM Stock Android is just pure awesome!

      funny, I got this for my daughter. She seems to like it…. but the 2.5″ rectangle screen would drive me nuts after using the 4″ Vibrant.

  • youcantrushagenuis

    my vote goes to the NEXUS one. it gets all the new updates, feels great. speeds are awesome. probably the only thing it lacks is the auto focus on the camera. I have had the G2, Mytouch 4g, hd7, and the nexus one still catches my eye after almost a year.

      I was am a huge Nexus One fan but I have to give it to my Mytouch 4G rooted. It feels faster, has a front facing camera, and has a bigger memory threshold. The design is nice (eventhough I loved the nexus) and with vanilla in it, it just feels amazing to be quite honest. Definitely have to choose this as my best til something with the hardware, size screen, and compact-ability comes out.

    Please vote carefully and please do not vote if you do not own any of theese phines or not own a tmobile phone at all . Ok
    Please be truthfull .
    I voted htc g2 truely the best!! Think u shud too

  • Bee Hopes

    Hd2 was sold out everywhere in cleveland! Decided to wait for android Vibrant.

  • Bloggingpig

    Nokia Nuron by far! ^o^

    How many phones on T-mo for <$100 let you have on your $5.99/unlimited internet plan:

    1. Tethering supported right out of the box by the OEM software.
    2. Free offline GPS maps with voice nav for life – as long as you've got memory card space, you can just fill up the phone from your PC and nav even when there's no cellular service. British female voice is my pick!
    Driving interface is very nice and lots of display modes to pick from allows you to go from 3D display to simple white on black text only display. Dashboard keeps track of relevants – miles covered, distance, est. time to target, avg mph, etc.
    3. Nice Opera Mobile performance.
    4. 640×360 resolution screen that makes wanting an iPhone 4 not an issue – pixels are tiny enough that they don't matter. Converted videos look tack-sharp HD!
    5. Solid music player performance – distortion, etc. with 3.5mm headphone jack.
    6. Nice drop performance – unlike most glass-front smartphones, this baby can take drops w/o issues. Plastic body helps with the bounce, and easily replaceable with eBay parts.
    7. Has free Swype (betalabs.nokia.com).
    8. Free 24/7 streaming TV using SPB TV.
    9. Free Internet Radio (hundreds of Shoutcast stations) using S60 Internet Radio, in addition to built-in FM Radio player that can output to headphones and speakerphone (latter a godsend).
    10. Easy to setup email that pulls like a Blackberry from Yahoo, Google, IMAP, POP, etc. accounts into the built-in client w/o fuss.
    11. Can be used with QQ FEP & M-VK & MFep60 & Opera Mobile to browse and enter Chinese & Japanese.
    12. Handles 16+GB MicroSD cards w/o a hitch.
    13. Has voice command & recognition for dialing names and other phone commands.
    14. Can record 640×480 MP4 video for hours until the battery dies or memory card runs out of space.
    15. Can be used with OBDScope (cheap software) + ELM 327 Bluetooth OBDII ($25) Scan tool (far, far cheaper than a Scantool!!!!) to HYPERMILE to the max! =D Probably one of the nicest tools around for tracking and squeezing the most MPG out of your car!

    Okay, so it doesn't have 'games' (er, DS, PSP far better at this. Better games, too – Metal Gear, Call of Duty, Final Fantasy, Monster Hunter, SOCOM, Mario, etc.), apps galore (what's the point when everything's already on the internet and it's unlimited and fast on 3G), esoterics (like a good EPWING dictionary program), but at <$100 (even cheaper on craigslist.com used) for an unlimited tethering, GPS, basic camera & mp3 & TV & radio replacement, well, can't find anything out cheaper or better at this price.

    Flash is limited to the basic Lite version, but free YouTube client takes care of the basics.

    2nd best pick would be the HTC HD2 – only phone out there that is very hackable and dual-boots Windows and Android nicely for a decent ~$250 price off craigslist, yet has access to the huge number of apps out for both platforms.

    Only problem with HD2s, like most other glass-front smartphones?
    Screen breakage is a very common thing and you can see many dead HD2's on eBay and craigslist for scrap sale.

    Having tried both capacitive (skin touch – HD2, iPhone, most $$$$ smartphones) and resistive (pressure – Nuron), I still go for resistive! No way I'm gonna take off my ski gloves just to enter stuff on my phone in freezing weather! Nuron's sensitive enough (DS like) that I'm not bothered at all by it.

      You might have just convinced me to get a Nokia Nuron as a back up phone but I’ll wait until the off contract price drops.

    Best phone is the G2 almost stock android and physical keyboard great combo. Anyone looking to sell their G2 or Nexus One? I upgraded in june and choose the MT3GS due to the slim pickings at the time and the keyboard. If anyone out there is looking to sell their Nexus One or G2 I am willing to buy

    If T-M was smart they would get rid of sumsung product line. Or rename it sumsucks , no froyo 2.2
    for vibrant. It make T-M look bad as provider and cellphone Company. If this company wants to number #1
    sum day, it has deliver upgrades to there customers before the.The number #1 company or stay
    number #2 or Become number #3 in 1-01-2011. Froyo 2.2 = 0 samsung vibrant sold 3Million=?
    T-mobile= worthless.

    • twag

      just making sure….you’re aware that none of the US galaxy s phones have 2.2, right? As in, not even Verizon, the #1 carrier.

      • Tcontento

        So true, I love how people blame the manufacture when it is a carrier thing… people people people….. if you want 2.2 on your vibrant, root it. It is easy, plenty of roms out there that runs well….. and lets face it, you will have better customization then t-mobile/samsung froyo will ever put out….. stop the whinning.

    Htc g2 is the best!!

    HD2 runs winmo, android, and very soon wp7, I cant believe it wasnt even mentioned.

  • ravidavi

    Hmmm let’s see here … a poll asking users which phone they think is the best. These users are, presumably, owners of T-Mobile phones. And they bought the phone that they thought was best. So they vote for that phone.

    So really, this is just a poll of “which T-Mobile phone do you own?”

    Had this poll been, “Which T-Mobile phone has made the biggest impact on Android,” the answer would have been an overwhelming Nexus One (which I don’t own). That phone is the sole reason why all other amazing Android phones exist, and is still (1 year after its launch) the phone that all new ones are compared to. What other phone can say that?

  • zerooxide

    What happened to the HD2? It was by far the most versatile phone on almost every carrier. Granted it came stock with Windows Mobile but was capable of running multiple operating systems flawlessly.

  • Tyrone M Jackson

    Given how T-Mobile doesn’t support their phones, who cares? Oh yea. “Soon” at T-Mobile, as in “Your Android phone will get its OS update soon”, means greater than 7 months.

  • Jprz_m

    Well, if Tmobile carry the Iphone it will be the best of course

        I own an unlocked iPhone and I’m no sheep!

        • Slotlover

          unlocked = your choice of carrier for service… it doesnt mean that your free to use the device as you see fit! hence the term sheep! pfft not a chance in h311 anyone with half a brain should own an apple of any kind!
          yes your sheep… with gold master cards! or as my mom used to say “more money then sense!”

        • Anonymous

          Honestly David I have never seen anyone admit to being an iSheep so just because you say your not doesn’t mean you aren’t. The people who aren’t fanboys are the ones who can easily admit the faults of a OS and still love it. I personally use Android OS and iOS4 all day and when it comes to my phone I prefer my Nexus S over the current iPhone. I say that Android OS and iOS are almost 50/50 when it comes to usability and functionality. Android = super customizable and iOS = great games.

        • Hockeylvn

          android has 8 track multitrack recording capability for musicians like iphone app store? i havent seen it yet..

        • Anonymous

          Why does that matter seriously? Are you trying to prove a point? The fact is that I never go anywheres without my Nexus S and iPod touch 4 so I know my way around both platforms very very well. There are a lot off awesome apps that are not available on iOS and vice versa. I know that with a simple update to iOS the iPhone could easily surpass Android like nothing but on Android they can’t have good games like iOS without some serious changes. It is thanks to Steve Jobs’ ego that Android was able to grow so big so fast. I think that he is trying to stop Android by finally giving in to Verizon and giving them a cdma version of the iPhone, that would be a very big blow to Android.

    Where is the HD2??!! With its ability to be the only phone to run WM6, Android and WP7, it is 100% the most versatile phone in the lineup! Had the HD7 been already been hacked to do all that, i may change my vote…

  • TruFactz™

    Idk. Bluetooth 3.0, certified Divx HD playback out the box, nice onboard storage, amazing video capability, stunning screen, cortex A8 (IPhone has A4) processor with a gpu that yields 90 million triangles a second (faster than any android device to date)…….OK Samsung fried us on the update, still haven’t heard we ain’t gone get it. I’m rolling wit the vibrant.

    I change phones like I change my underwear( via trade ofcourse)and out of all the Tmo phones that I’ve owned this year which is almost all of them,if the Vibrant would’ve gotten froyo it would be #1 G2 #2 and my current phone Mt4g #3…

    THE HTC HD2 IS THE HANDS DOWN PHONE OF THE YEAR. IT CAN DO EVERYTHING, THIS POLL NEEDS TO BE RESTARTED WITH THAT HANDSET ADDED.

  • Wilma Flintstone

    Definitely a tough choice out of the phones listed. I’d have to say the Nexus One. Tmo has definitely filled the need for Android Smartphones. Next year will be alot easier for me to choose due to Meego and the possible devices that may come to Tmo. After watching more Meego vids on Youtube from the Meego In Vehicle UI, Tablet UI, Netbook UI to the Smartphone UI, Meego will revolutionize the Smartphone market. Mark my words. 2011 = Meego Revolution.

    Been a great year for t-mobile without a doubt this year. Had both Nexus 1 and G2. Love Android software the best by far. Only downfall is the battery life, on all Android devices it seems like. I got caught up in the early pre-release of the HD2…..=( worst phone I have ever owned. Still love HTC, but one word killed it for me…….”windows”. I wont even touch the HD7 now. But back to the point. The best phone for ME this year from T-Mobile. The simple yet amazing Blackberry Bold 9780. Not only for the year but my favorite phone to date.

    Motorola Defy!!!!! kills all other phones, and cannot be killed!–
    Its definitely not the greatest phone spec wise, ill agree to that… but the phone is water proof, scratch proof, has the best most sensitive screen ive ever seen on a phone, my quadrant test for the phone goes to 1800 which id say is pretty good for a midrange phone… the flashlite allows me to view full sites without having to re load them from the mobile site (not to many can say that about their phone) . Motoblur keeps you more connected than anything, and it finally runs smoothly on this phone. The battery is the best EVER: i used the phone (texting, games (gameboid), live wallpaper, web, calls, etc…) and the battery lasted for a good day and a half with no charge. that kicks all other smart phones waaaaay out the park. the open Gl graphics makes games and android with blur run super smooth. the camera on the phone with flash, is simply amazing, couldnt ask for better! overall id say this is the best android phone to come out this year. or atleast in its price range.

  • beastly

    +1 to everything niko said. The Defy is exactly what I needed. Not a powerhouse like the MT4G or the G2, but I love the way everything is kind of optimized for efficiency on it. Best battery on the market, the same size touchscreen as the G2, but much less wasted space all around it, Motoblur (which I find useful, and which does not slow this phone down one bit) a perfectly decent processor and a little over 1 GB of internal memory. Touchscreen is very responsive, and the screen quality is very nice. It doesn’t have Froyo, but XDA has posted a root for it if I ever decide I need to have full flash 10.1. It’s my handy little Android sidekick that I can toss in a pocket full of keys and quarters, or accidentally knock into a sink. It won’t do for the power users who must have a Scorpion-powered HSPA+ capable monster, but it’s a great midrange phone that works very well for me.

    Possibly the most underrated phone on the market. (The HD2 is in the running too, for very different reasons.)

  • Izorro

    G2 the most vanilla(ish)

  • 123Azul321

    I think Vibrant because it’s the easiest to do things to and the hardest to break. It also has amazingly good Specs. And you can’t really argue that. But everybody has their own opinions and that reflects in the polls.

    • mylackk7

      I would agree the Vibrant is a strong contender in looks (screen) and options, but the battery life is a joke – even with Froyo. The Mytouch 4g definitely deserves 1st place.

    • Axel14

      I have The G4 and my brother looked at it saw what it could do compared to the Vibrant and regrets making that choice for the rest of his life

    Wow really? Who voted for Garmin? Charm? Slide? Just because you own the phone and never used another doesnt make it the best phone of 2010. Narrow these choices to MyTouch4G, Vibrant, G2, and Nexus S.
