This is the question that came to my mind after reading the review of the iPhone 4 on Engadget where everyone that owned a device said theirs is the best. I now want to ask you guys what you think makes a phone “The best”.

To me a device that has to be the best most meet these requirements:

Small and easy to carry (not my HD2)
Smooth and fast (my HD2 pretty much 3/4th of the time)
Has all the good stuff: WiFi, 3G, Maybe 4G, Awesome screen, More than 2 finger multi-touch, Fast processor, and pretty much everything the HD2 has.
Runs a comfortable OS (Windows Phone 6.5.3 can sometimes be uncomfortable for me, 1/4 of the time)
Can handle my daily life (Emails, games, videos, and music)

Now if a device can meet all those goals, then its perfection to me.

The thing about all that is… It does not answer my question. Phones can be perfect but not the best. The thing that makes a device the best is what you want.

If you love your device, then it is the best to you. If you see a device and love it, then you can call it the best but not everything might as well. I have friends that owns an iPhone and say it’s the best, but I would never say that because the phone is build under one size fits all rule. My HD2 was bought with the knowledge that I can change it and hold it (sorry that is just a joke, I do not want to start a battle) anyways I like.

Now I can say I have the best HD2 (and you will see why in the video tomorrow), but I am sure 20% of you HD2 owners will disagree and say your device is better. This is all good because that means your device is truely yours and is made for you, and like the HTC commercial say “You, You, You and we are HTC”.
