What bothered us the most about the PCD Chaser was its abysmal battery life. More specifically, it was basically nonexistent. Its slow internal speeds didn't do it any favors, either.

What would slow down the already glacial ZTE Score M? How about its distracting amount of bloatware? In addition, its mediocre screen's narrow viewing angle didn't improve matters.

As the most high-tech phone of the bunch, we were surprised that the Sony Xperia Ion shipped natively with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. And though it has a 12-megapixel camera, its photo quality didn't impress us.

We're all about simple feature phones, but the Huawei Verge took simplicity and threw it off a cliff. Not to mention, its 1-megapixel camera is poor and its Web browser is tedious.

Though cute, the Pantech Swift, complete with a QWERTY keyboard, has an irritatingly slow processor inside and an unresponsive touch screen.

Frankly, we couldn't see a bright side with the Samsung Brightside. Its less than stellar camera, laggy CPU, and poor screen resolution were all enough to convince us that there is no silver lining.

Despite its name, the Pantech Hotshot is lukewarm at best. If you can deal with its slow internal speeds, good luck with its laggy data speeds and unresponsive screen.

In matters of love, it's all about timing -- and due to the ZTE Render's poor timing, we couldn't love it. The handset operated on Windows Phone 7.8, even though WP8 would be released just a few weeks after. Talk about an already dated debut.
