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.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
