We’ve included a list of the most likely suspects, however, you should feel free to add an unlisted choice in the comments. You can only vote once so choose wisely. What phone did you truly lust for this year?

    You mean Torch 9810?

    • I sure did, all fixed!

  • steven

    the amaze 4g is epic.  my LDI is red from all of my drool, it is that sexy.

  • Bootheorane

    T mobile G2

    • Aaron Tant

      I loved that phone, the only reason I think David left it off was because it didn’t come out in 2011.

  • Anonymous

    I had to pick the Tmobile g2x because its the ONLY thing on Tmobile close to being a pure google phone.  I owned the SGS and hated the touchwiz UI, I also had the mytouch4g wihich I liked BUT sense kept crashing.   

    • Antoinetrenton

      My touch 4g whz doing the samething that why I got a LG g2x and its one of the best t mobile phone

      • Kelly

        My G2X sucked. It was so buggy. Fast but buggy. I replaced it with the awesome Amaze!

  • Kahlayoh

    I love my Galaxy S2

  • Bimmerz

    Ahh! David – ya left off the Nexus S?! pffft ;o)

    Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend! 

    • The Nexus S came out in 2010. So…yup, sure did leave it off! December 16th, 2010. That would make it ineligible! 

      • Bimmerz

        Ok, makes sense – just 2 weeks shy of 2011, so I pretty much think of it as a 2011 phone. No matter! Happy Holidays! =o)

        • Well…I only posted phones that actually released in 2011 and I’m sticking to that!

        • Anonymous

          oooooookay, 2011 is 2011 we get it!

        • Wilma Flintstone

          NO! My HD2 NEEDS to be on that list!!! Edit that Poll David!!! GRRRR!!! LOL!!!

        • Bimmerz

          Ok, if you’re set on 2011 (that’s cool), where’s the Galaxy Nexus? It has been released, and while it’s not sold by T-Mobile US (nor was the Nexus S), it too should be included. Just sayin… ;o)

        • Honestly, this is for phones SOLD by T-Mobile. That should be obvious. The “best T-Mobile phone,” not “the best phone that would run on T-Mobile even so it wasn’t actually sold on T-Mobile” poll of 2011.

        • Bimmerz

          Fair enough. I was going by your Facebook posting from a couple of days ago, when you were asking about best phones – and you had included the NS, because it was sold on contract.

          Then I think you later realized that the NS wasn’t sold in 2011. As it was sold late Dec 16th, 2010 – and you had to remove that option. Which is what made me think of the Galaxy Nexus – although it’s not sold on “contract” like the NS was.

          Anyway, from what I gather, we may not see it sold on T-Mobile (or even through Best Buy) in 2012. But it looks like damn AT&T will be getting it in February. :o(

          Oh well, it is what it is… 

      • Anonymous

        and the new Nexus, Galaxy Nexus or Nexus II?? 2012 …sometime LOL

    • The Nexus S came out in 2010. So…yup, sure did leave it off! December 16th, 2010. That would make it ineligible! 

    • Bimmerz

      P.S. If I had to vote on the above selected, I’d go with SGS2 or the HTC Amaze – even though I haven’t used either (other than tested within a T-Mobile store). =o)

  • Jonhammond

    I’ve had every T-Mobile Sidekick phone since the original black and white that looked like a bar of soap. The new Sidekick 4G is definitely the best one yet, once you get the hang of the Android features. Highly recommend, JH

    Rocking ICS on my Sensation 4G.

  • Sammyesparza

    I have to say the sensation, amaze, and galaxy s 2 are definitely top 3. I had a sensation, im now using the amaze

  • Too bad the Galaxy Nexus isn’t officially a T-Mobile phone. ;-)

  • Moalx1

    Got the Galaxy Nexus GSM on T-Mo. It ia awesome!!

    • JM

      How are the speeds with it on T-Mobile? I just switched to Verizon for it but it (usually) isnt really any faster in LTE than my GSII was on T-Mobile’s service.

      • Sacedric

        I have GN on T-Mo and get between 4mbs and highest i have tested so far is 12mbps down. Time of day dependent. But still faster then what i used to get on my mytouch4g. The phone is awesome.

        • JM

          OK, so it is a little slower than the GSII and and LTE Nexus but not enough to really matter. Thanks.

  • Superman

    Hey David , you should have named this article as ” the best phones to use on Tmobile network” and added the iPhone as one of the voting options. Me and you would for sure vote for the iPhone .

    • That is so true!!

      • Wilma Flintstone

        iSheep LOL Jk David Lol

        • PhantomWraith

          Actually I was amazed that the Iphone wasn’t on the list knowing how the blogger is dying to get one anyway. Not sure why anyone would want it, my friend that has a Iphone 4 can’t even do half the things I can do on my amaze and he wanted to trade me. I was like OH HELL NO. LOL

        • Right, see I appreciate the iPhone and if you don’t, that’s fantastic. The thing is, your comment comes across as more of an “I hate the iPhone” than it does an argument as to why your phone is actually better.

        • Wilma Flintstone

          Um, My comment was a joke at the podcast… Not meant to spark an argument… *womp womp woooommmmpppp*

  • Owned the G2X for almost all of 2011. Probably the longest I’ve ever held onto a single phone.

    • Smith22t

      Hell me too I just switch 2weeks ago. But I still have my g2x

    • Joseg66

      Great phone but still freezes and too many problems at rollout. I just bought a Galaxy Nexus but will keep the G2X and wait for Ice Cream.

    My G2x came w/ Gingerbread. Not buggy at all. Fast & the battery lasts a long time.

    Really how is tmobiles first 4.3″ screen phone not winning everyone got the gs2 (except Verizon) nothing special if everyone got it

    • Wilma Flintstone

      You mean the HD2?

  • Anonymous

    I have an HTC Sensation but the GS2 wins without a doubt.

  • Anonymous

    Yeah, dunno. I think the HTC Radar is the most reliable device we have released this year. I believe if more folks took the time and used Windows Phone, they would really give it a shot. It’s pretty stellar. Wish we would have released the Titan though…

      Me too! I would of use my upgrade for that.

  • Rush8220

    I noticed you didn’t ad the exhibit just exhibit 2 it came out in 2011 rite I wouldn’t say it was the best phone but definitly worth mentioning probably the best mid range phone tmo came out with this yr. I voted for the sgs2 definitly most innovative products out this year. I’m still using my HTC hd 2 still the best phone out, ever. I bought an exhibit my wife uses it I’m glad I got the exhibit its a good phone.

  • Magilla409

    HTC Sensation 4G, easy. Lots of awesome ROMs available, powerful hardware, and a great design (I love that if I bang up the unibody phone housing, I can get a replacement and it would be good as new.) The SGS2 is nice, but really isn’t that surperior other than additional RAM and onboard storage (especially once the Sensation is rooted/overclocked/running a custom ROM.)

  • gixxerj

    Sgs2 all day, 1.5 ghz dual core processor, 768 mb ram. Hard to beat that right now now I got my 32gb micro sd and loving it. Just need ics now.

    • Ilyas_k15

      it’s 1 gb ram 

      • Br1

        768 MB, give or take is accesible


    moto CLIQ2, not too technocool but, in areas where towers are few and far between and HTC and samsung phones are just pretty plastic bricks along with iphones, it becomes very apparent.

    i wonder what kind of new MOTO hardware is heading for t-mo?

    I got it on Monday and I’m loving my GS2.

  • fandroid

    Sensation is the easy choice. Sorry GSII, me no like you.

    • MrBonez

      I agree 100% fandroid.  I’ve had my HTC Sensation for about 5 months now and its AWESOME!!! I will always have an HTC phone with T-Mobile

      • Tbyrne

        Gotta disagree there MrBonez. I had the Sensation day 1 when it came out. Sold it on Amazon for $360.00, got the GS2 and never been happier. Lighter, bigger screen, samoled screen. Didn’t like the touchwiz though at first but it grows on you.

  • Ibleedmagenta

    Why would you want a galaxy s2? The g2x is pure android. Its the closest we would have got to a non overlay phone that was 4g with out going to sprint. Touchwiz is a better overlay than sense, granted, but I’ve had everything from blur to touchwiz and to me nothing beats the g2/g2x phones. If t mobile came out with a newer version with ICS I would buy it tomorrow.

    • Wilma Flintstone

      Actually, Sense has been said to be the Best Overlay by numerous people. I’m not that fond of it but thats what a few reviewers say.

      • Anonymous

        I like sense its pretty good but if ICS had the same camera features as Sense UI it would be no contest that id choose them over sense

    • Havoktek

      Hey I’m down with the G2x but put an Galaxy S2 in front of me then I’m jumping ship!
      LG screwed the pooch when they created this phone….shoddy first run builds, patchy software support….If I didn’t know how to root the damn thing I would have ditched it a long time ago…

    • Anonymous

      ” Why would you want a galaxy s2? The g2x is pure android…”
      i am a degenerate technophobe with a limited budget.  i may not be able to aquire different devices with various levels of carrier customization, but i can at least try the pure android roms the various devs produce.

      i have tried a “pure google” experience.  i didn’t like it.  just because you liked a strict google device doesn’t mean that everyone else will.

      as for why anyone would want the galaxy s2, well, it was the best phone t-mobile offered this year and its camera was comparable to (but not better than) the amaze and was cheaper.  i voted for the sgs2 (and with my wallet as well).

      besides, didn’t the g2x have some significant known hardware and/or software issues?

  • King69pm

    The GS2 is hot but it is missing the notificaion feature that the epic touch has and samsung need to step up their radio game if im going to have a to pay that much for a phone it needs to have superb bar levels no matter where I am at!

  • Anonymous

    The Radar (winPhone7) is so stable and silky smooth in operation.  Very intuitive and solid hardware,  Gets my vote.

    You should have a “worst phone of the year” as well.  For that I nominate the Sidekick4g.  8 months out from launch and still not stable.  I have run alpha roms on my nexus one that were more stable than the official samsung sidekick4g release.

    • Anonymous

      It would have been a fine device if samsung would have upgraded the software and recalled all those defective unit whose touchscreen turns off

      • Anonymous

        I absolutely agree with you.  But samsung and upgrades do not generally go in the same sentence.  And samsung dealing with defects also generally does not go in the same sentence.  This is definitely the last anything that i buy with a “samsung” on it

  • Nearmsp

    Now I can understand why Apple’s legal time is charging full steam in Australia, Netherlands, Germany etc against the SGS2. That said, iPhone 4S is losing market share in Europe. I yearned for an iPhone on T-mobile. Having changed from a 16 month BB Bold to an SGS2, there is no going back to BB or even considering an iPhone for me. Serves Apple right for going out of its way to keep T-mobile customers from getting an iPhone. Viva Samsung and T-mobile!

    • How did Apple go out of its way? It made one phone that has a radio that supports most of the world’s GSM and CDMA carriers.

  • Kaylee

    Amaze!! I know it won’t win because the galaxy s II is more popular, but the camera on this phone is phenomenal. Also I know a lot of people hate Sense, but I absolutely love it!

  • Andy8250

    My favority phone es the nexus s for T-Mobile the best.

  • Nik

    SGSII is a nice phone but the versatility, build quality and overall staying power my original Sensation has provided (plus i’ve already got stable builds of ICS on it) makes it my top for the year. Amaze would get the nod if it weren’t anything more than a copy paste with some new cam software..

  • saintcloud

    Samsung galaxy s 2 is the best phone out there in everyway.who need iPhone when apple controls the phone

  • Mirad77

    The Droid Razor. Boy this phone is a beast. Even though I only have edge, an still loving every minute am using it.

      Or they just don’t like the skyrocket and it’s sub par processor.

    • Yep. I somewhat agree, only because I’ve used or owned every phone on is this. The galaxy s 2 is the best in my opinion, but that’s it. An opinion. Everyone has their own.

  • Gsxrguy412

    Ive had my g2x since new..the original camera was unbeatable!!The gingerbread update ruined that!! The lack of overlay is wonderful! My phones never been problematic..its!! BEST PURE ANDROID PHONE PERIOD!!! Hope I get ICS!!

    Galaxy S 4g… best bang for your buck phone… period. $100, 24mb/s 4g, amoled screen… if it had a flash it would be the BEST phone in tmobiles line-up. as a sales representative for T-Mobile, i have sold more of those phones than any other and i have never EVER had a single one come back…

    • Felix

      Sean of course as a Rep u gonna sell the most of what phone u have. I’m a Rep too and I sell the hell out of my gsII and the new touchwiz owns the gs 4g.

  • Zahy Matar

    LG G2x! The T-Mobile Galaxy SII is using a Snapdragon, not the Exynos… So, it’s not really the best phone on T-Mobile. G2x all day.

    • Antoinetrenton

      That’s right LG g2x all day

      • Havoktek

        I’m going to have to agree from the pure hardware standpoint…..

        • Justamazing87

          The g2x dual-core is slower than Qualcomms dual core s3 processor. Check ur facts. Amazed also has PhD res. And Adreno 220 is good… Soo Idk what ur talking about

        • Tomnewtn

          Yep, G2X is a sleek build, and mine is flawless with GB. Very fast, very reliable. I never have reboots or have to pull the battery. Mine was sent to me with GB already installed, so maybe that’s why.

    • Anonymous

      G2x light bleeding display is garbage, update cycle is a joke, endless bugs are a nightmare, and tons of bloatware prevent me from considering it “pure”. I returned that thing 23 times before i finally got my money back. Last time I ever buy a LG product.

  • Going_home

    HTC Amaze for the win !
    For all you GSII sheeple, I had that phone for a couple days.
    Yep, returned it for the Amaze, very glad I did.
    Same size screen but smaller phone, oh and higher resolution too I might add.
    Best part of the Amaze… doesnt have the horrendous Samsung Touchwhiz user interface.
    Also the camera is hugely better than the GSII.


    • Seanmmvi

      the amaze has a smaller screen… 4.3″ screen to the S2’s 4.5″ screen…

    • Anonymous

      Sense is crap. I’m by no means a fan of touch wiz but good god sense is terrible. Also Samsung’s displays are hands down the best. Unfortunately I have a sensation…. I’ve never loathed a piece of technology as much as this piece of garbage.

  • TJ

    can tell you the exhibit 2 is the worst

  • felix

    SGSII is beast and no other phone can compare. The amaze is a better version of the sensation and touchwiz owns HTC sense!

    • Going_home

      Enjoy your crappy Touchwiz my friend.
      Dont forget to enjoy how much longer it takes you to get updates because of Touchwiz too !
      HTC will have their phones updated months before Samsung heheh.


      • Nearmsp

        Like the Wi-Fi calling update?

    • Mental_Environ

      Politely, with no disrespect intended, the SGS2 needs two cores – one to run android, and the other to deal with the memory leaks, bugginess and lag from touchwiz.  It is quite possibly the worst implementation I have ever seen.  If you like it’s features, then good on you, but it is a pathetic piece of software that makes most samsung phones with lesser specs unusable and makes upgrades take significantly longer than they need to.

      • Had my s2 since it came out and it never ever lags….seriously. And last night I was out and drunkenly dropped my phone on the pavement without a case on…no harm done

      • Zeth006

        You’ve never owned an S2, have you?

  • Anonymous

    galaxy nexus.

  • tmorocks

    I had the galaxy s2 & then I dumped it for an amaze such I love…then I missed the galaxy s2 so of course I bought another one….I’ve owned a sensation since it came out(and I’m typing on it now) & my wife has the galaxys 4g….all of these are excellent phones in their individual ways. No single one “Owns” in every department…Or Tmobile would only make one phone & that would blow! I’m a 30 year old phone junkie that loves all the toys tmo throws my way with my five lines of service! I been with tmo 9yrs now & I’m just happy we have phones like all of the ones mentioned here to choose from, or in my case buy them all, lol….let’s just be happy we aren’t CDMA! You could say your phones the greatest but you can’t because its not yours!!! Because as soon as Verizon or sprint decide they want to do iyt, your phones a paper weight!!! All of the phones on tmo rock whether it be for value, camera processor, display, rooting capabilities or a lot of other reasons! F*?%$ CDMA!!! I’m just glad I’m not them!!

    • bill40

      Our VERIZION cdma dual core Droids must really suck! and suck bad too…and that’s why we have 100 million customers vs 30 million on tmo. We not with out our issues, but we must be doing something right. Verizion does cost a bit more but you get what you pay for….So dont demonize what you don’t like…people are not stupid, we all make the Best choice for our money and what we like.

        $70 more per month is more than a bit

      • Matlcok

        I like being able to switch phones without having to have my carrier do it for me! Although I do have alot of respect for Big Red’s network and its reliability. But being a phone junkie like I am, I cant go without having my sim card, and no I dont like Crapt&t or Sprint!

      • Tomnewtn

        Get what you pay for? Believe that if you like. For $79- mo (loyalty plan), I can unlimited everything, can wi-fi hotspot, tether, with no other charges. My data is fast, and my calls don’t drop. I compared this to Verizon’s fees for comparable services, and my monthly was going to be much much higher. In addition, I like being able to switch my sim card between devices without calling and asking permission to use my other phones. Vz has accomplished much, but they overcharge, and from what I have read, do not offer good customer service in terms of billing issues. And I was able to use my phones in Italy with local sim.

    I had a behold II, it is where i first learned to HATE touchwiz.  There is an old adage, if at first you don’t succeed, get a bigger hammer.  I was going to try that on the behold II, but my 11 year old asked for it and there you go, I missed the chance…..

       Way to not vote correctly.  It’s what T-Mo offers in stores, not what you can use on the network.  Geez.  haha  Merry Christmas.

  • Enoel69

    GALAXY NEXUS…hoping Tmo will get a pentaband 32GB GSM 3G/HSPA+ model with the 1850 mAh  battery or my preference the 2100mAh battery. The phone is so thin and light that with the 2100mAh battery you wont even realize the added girth, (see the Verizon model w/ the 2100mAh accessory battery video on youtube) and the phone will feel much better in ur hand bcuz it won’t be so light. Now that we have the Att debacle behind is time for Google to give Tmo a GO with G-Nex. The cash put aside for this device is burning a hole in my pocket..i am growing impatient and really tempted to get the 16GB model. But considering that there is no SD expansion…i am waiting for word from Google/Samsung on when an unlocked pentaband 32GB GSM 3G HSPA+ model will be made available…plzzzz make that sooner b4 CES makes that decision harder by the introduction of a few killer ICS devices like the HTC VILLE, HTC EDGE etc. One MAJOR Advantage the G-Nex may have on any upcoming ICS device is the PURE ANDROID ICS and therefore will get any update first directly from the Mothership. 

    I will ask this question again….DOES HTC HAVE THE BALLS TO MAKE ONE OF THEIR UPCOMING DEVICES ( Ville, Edge, Excite or Another Unknown device)  A PENTABAND GSM DEVICE W/ 3G/HSPA+ but W/ PURE VANILA ICS WITHOUT SENSE UI ON IT???  Why do they think all the clamoring for the G-Nex is for…beside the beautiful 4.65″ HD screen, Shape, GSM Pentaband…i will say PURE VANILA ICS is a huge part. Hope these OEMs can learn something from the pure ICS G-Nex.

  • Darren

    Toss up between the sgs2 and the g2x…I guess I will say the g2x because of vanilla android and no lag

    • are you kidding, after the gingerbread update its full of lag!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ali

    The question is “will tmobile get the galaxy nexus or the razr?”

    • Mirad77

      Hope the razr as I can testify of what a beast this phone is. Mine is GSM but not compatible with tmo’s 3g, but am still loving every minutes of the phone even on edge.

  • Justamazing87

    How the sensation is better then the amaze…ppl just voted for the phone they have

    • Rek Aviles

      If the poll was about which phone has better specs, then you would only see 2 or 3 phones on the list. Not much of a poll. 

      I tried all the top phones on that list and I will go with Sensation. Amaze was very buggy for me and the hype of the camera, was just that.. hype to me, cause I didn’t see it doing anything that would make me want to buy it off contract. 

      Sensation: Minimal issues out the box, batt life has been pretty damn good, great Sense UI and heavy apps run smoothly on that phone. Like all the phone, that have its pros and cons but overall, it’s a great phone

    Based on extensive research, and my own experience, I would have to say the G2x. Better build. Better UI, and with GB, mine has been flawless and fast as heck. I would prefer true stock like my Nexus One, in a more powerful build, but not by Samsung. 

  • has to be galaxy s2 ….. its the king

    How could the sensation get more votes than the amaze? Understand the Galaxy fanboy action but pure specs the amaze blows sensation away not to mention its just beautiful in comparison
