Bria works well.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Worth the $10 or whatever it is. Also has the option to buy the G729 codec which is handy if you try to use it over 3G.

Will require you to use OpenVFX though.

I've used a number of clients on Android and found CsipSimple to be all round best and the development builds have plenty of workarounds for the foibles that you invariably find on different phones. Csipsimple also supports G729a which is pretty much a must to get good quality / cost over 3G.

CsipSimple also allows multiple accounts and integrates well with most phones.

I've not used Bria but obviously a few people here vouch for it and, as mentioned, it support G729a which many apps don't.

I've also found that the speed and performance of the handset makes a huge difference to the call quality.

I use Csipsimple. Bria is nicer but it will not let your phone go into sleep - so it's a huge battery suck compared to other clients
