I recently got fed up with my previous smartphone (name omitted) and I'm considering switching to an Android based phone. However, I have been stumped by the sheer number of handsets. I'm more than willing to change carriers and I have no preferences in keyboard style.
What I am looking for (and cannot find on google) is a comparison of features between different Android phones so that I can make an educated decision (or at least whittle that decision down).
This link to wikipedia shows a list of Android devices. If you scroll down to the table with the section headed Released, Installed devices you will see a list of smartphones. I would recommend clicking on Version twice, to sort with the latest Android version eg2.2 ( and consequently newer phones) at the top.
You will notice that the Evo 4g and the Galaxy S are near the top. This should help to narrow down your choices.
Here is one that I just came across. Droidthing has all kinds of parameters for you to mess around with to find the perfect Android phone to fit your needs.
The official Google Phone Gallery is pretty good for comparing different Android devices.
PhoneScoop has an excellent search engine and compare an extensive list of features site-by-side with differences highlighted automatically. I've used it for every phone I've purchased in the last few years.
GSM Arena has a great tool to compare devices one to another.
I like the PC Pro website which has a well sorted reviews section - click on Android (under OS) and you'll have a list. You can tick the boxes next to the phones and then a compare button will appear giving you a line by line comparison.
Note this is a UK site and some phones have different names to the US versions.
Try PDADB's PDAchooser.
Its a bit overwhelming with all the options you have available to filter by but it always seems up-to-date and if you ever need to find phones other than android it can do that too
This comparison table is created by Portable Electronics.
For free information, check out CNet Reviews. If you're willing to pay a little, visit ConsumerReports.org. They do really well at apples-to-apples comparisons on a wide variety of products, including cell phones.
If you've narrowed down your search to a couple of phones I recommend using this site http://www.compare-cellphones.org/
It is not Android specific, so you can compare anything that's in the database if you were looking for other devices. You will also find related comparisons so you can have a look at other competing devices.
Please note since it's a relatively new website I've found a few errors, but nothing too major.
