Best Android phone

Preferably with a full qwerty keyboard.

Suggestions for around 100/200?

I just bought an Orange San Francisco (£100) ships with Android and benchmarks slightly lower than a HTC Desire.

I bought the phone as I recently broke my Iphone and im still on contract for 8 months and dont have insurance.

To be honest I dont think I could go back to apple again even though I bummed it pre buying this Orange San Francisco.

You wont go far wrong with the phone. I rooted it and took all the orange software off and flashed it with a 2.2 Froyo rom and its as fast (if not faster) than my Iphone 3GS.

I highly recommend the phone if you are wanting an android for less than £200 and your not arsed about a decent camera on your phone.

Gone for the Desire HD. it is serious. the camera alone is amazing. changing the point of focus mid record with just a tap is hot.

When i said full qwerty i meant touch but with a slide that has keys. BTW

Desire HD is my favourite atm. Was about time they released something like the HD2 with Android.
Some people don't like the size of it but if you want it for multimedia it is sweet.

I have one at work, my personal phone is a Nexus One. I'd like to buy a HD but the differences between all the new HTC phones is small, and I'm not sure it warrants the price of upgrading atm. Same processors, same OS, same apps etc, just a bigger screen.
 
My friend got a Gingerbread ROM off xda, 'Gingerbread 98% working' or something. Was it that one?

The Nexus didn't really take off in the UK. Mostly a developers tool now. 
Personally I think what happened was that Google asked HTC to manufacture X amount of phones for them and didn't sell many. Then HTC realised they could produce a similar phone and sell millions more, thus the Desire pissed all over the Nexus in sales. Clever business. Might also be the reason the Nexus S isn't being made by HTC.
 
My friends ROM is Nexus specific apparently so not sure what it would be like on the Desire. Not too technical on the rooting thing. He has his overclocked to 1200Mhz! He uses Set CPU and his battery life is pretty good as when he puts the phone on standby is drops the processing speed to 145Mhz.

Google got the Nexus built to demonstrate the power that Android has and what can be done with it with the hope being that it would raise the Android profile and get manafacturers to respond with more high end handsets which they did with the Desire, Galaxy etc. They never released it with the intention of making any money from it or anything.

I agree the aim was not solely to make money, and that Google wanted to show off the Android OS, but the Nexus was their flagship device. They would not have wanted to cease production as soon as it did. The market became too busy for them.

Looking forward to seeing how the Hummingbird processor performs in the Nexus S. Also want to see what this NFC technology is all about.

nah the hd desire is too big for my tastes

loads of google videos on the nexus s, nfc stuff looks great, and especially liked that you can set google maps as a live wallpaper with the traffic overlay on it (prob only american cities atm tho)

has 1500mAh battery, my hero had 1350mAh and not really good enough, also most of the new htc phones have 1250mAh and much higher power demands so fuck that.

Works on the Nexus One so would imagine it would be fine.

Nexus was originally sold online and was shipped direct from the US, SIM free.
Google then sold it later on in Vodafone stores in the UK, locked to Vodafone.
 
Would have sold a lot more if Google sold it in all stores from the start. Don't think they understood the UK market too well.

Playing music is one of the main consumers of battery power. Shame really.
