A lot of smartphones come through our offices here at CNET, and we put each one of them through their paces; some pass with flying colors and others we'd rather take a pass on. However, at the end of the day, it's you, our readers, who are the harshest critics. After all, you're the ones living with and using these gadgets every day, and while we have our own list of editors' favorites, we also definitely pay attention to user ratings and opinions.

They're presented in no particular order and we've included our bottom line as well as a reader's comment to give you an example of why these devices are so well-loved.
