CNET's top cell phones of 2009

CNET reviews 2009 with the top cell phones of the year.

As 2009 ends, CNET honors an annual tradition of collecting the best cell phones of the year. Unlike the list we published last week in which we covered your favorites of 2009 , this gallery includes the cell phones that we liked best.

The following 10 handsets scored the highest ratings out of the 168 handsets that we reviewed this year. I didn't include smartphones--Bonnie Cha already covered those in her top 10 list --and the models are listed in no particular order. I had to make an exception for the Motorola Cliq, though. It didn't make Bonnie's list, but it was one my favorite phones of the whole year. After you've taken a gander at CNET's top phones of 2009 , be sure to tell us about your favorites below.
