Sorry for starting another thread.

What do you think is the best android phone which has the looks and the features. I want it to be able to play nice graphics games and play other multimedia etc really well.

What do you think is the best android phone look wise and feature wise. :)

Galaxy S II...possibly or the HTC Evo 3D

Motorolla Atrix - For the specs + the laptop dock
Samsung Galaxy S2 - For the specs + awesome screen + thinness
Sony Arc - Just for the awesome camera, otherwise it's not that great
Sony Play - Not great specs, but has game pad buttons (Would only buy if you wanted to play games and needed built in gamepad)

NB. HTC Evo 3D looks awesome as well, but it's only just been announced in gsm version so will be ages away

Galaxy SII, especially considering you specifically mentioned media playback - there won't be a better media player, Android or otherwise, on the market until Samsung releases its successor.

Also LG Optimus 2X and LG Optimus 3D are worth a look.

Personally I'd go for the Galaxy S2 or the Arc (because of the camera)

SGSII definitely for me, I expect its camera will be essentially on a par with the Arc, perhaps have an edge with its 1080p capture.

The Optimus 2x could be a worth a look, mostly since it seems very dev friendly - Paul Obrian already has a Modaco ROM kitchen for it.

It might just be bc the Opti 2X has come out before the Gal S2

I don't think the camera on the S2 will match the Arc, because the Arc is a backlit sensor (similar to N8 & iphone 4) whereas the S2 is just a standard cellphone sensor.

If the SGSII's 8mp camera unit is as good as the i8910 one was then I think it should produce very good shots. Despite the apparent camera specs and prowess Sony is bringing to the table, their previous offerings like the X10, which looked on face value to be a great Android camera-phone, haven't lived up to promise. I think it remains to be seen, backlit sensor or not.

EDIT: Just saw a user review of the Arc at XDA, for the Japanese version of the handset, looking for example shots now, but their early comments say that image processing is too agressive in terms of sharpening and colour correction, low light quite serviceable, video not particularly good. Those are likely software issues though, so Sony may be able to correct them.

HTC Desire HD - the large screen absolutely rocks for games and multimedia.

Galaxy S2 or LG Optimus 2X. Both are no brainers for media and games. S2 would be my preference.

HTC has a pretty impressive 3d phone: http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_evo_3d-3901.php
