If 2010 was a landmark year for Google's Android operating system in Australia, then 2011 is set to be the year it truly explodes. Offering a number of benefits over Apple's iPhone including an open applications market, a customisable user interface and full multitasking, the Android smartphone platform continues to go from strength to strength.

There are now a wealth of Android smartphones on the market in Australia from a wide range of manufacturers including HTC, Samsung, Motorola, Sony Ericsson and LG. For those who want an alternative to the iPhone, we've rounded up the best Android smartphones currently available in Australia.

Samsung Galaxy S

The Samsung Galaxy S possesses the best display we've seen on a smartphone (though we're yet to review the iPhone 4). However, this Android handset is let down by a few niggling annoyances, particularly the all-plastic build and the TouchWIZ UI, which that lacks the polish this premium smartphone deserves. The Galaxy S is a great smartphone, but it sits a notch below HTC's Desire.

Tarun Khanna's poor reception comments are irksome but it does make a good point. It is very difficult to find a review on a mobile phone that includes a comment on it's reception capability. In Australia, for many consumers, it is the number one criteria for a smartphone so one would expect an Australian reviewer would know this and include it in their review.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
