It's a sure bet that the electric pink or blue hue of the LG dLite will turns some heads, but the hidden LED light displays are the flip phone's more arresting details.
With its wide face and full QWERTY keyboard below, the Motorola Charm has a design unlike any other Android phone on the market. An unfortunate byproduct is one of the smallest, squashiest touch-screen displays, which makes the MotoBlur UI extra cluttered and the navigation cramped.
Samsung Gravity 3
At its heart a typical messaging slider phone with QWERTY keyboard, the Samsung Gravity 3's electric blue accents get it noticed.
Sonim XP3 Quest
Is it a phone or a Transformer? The hyper-rugged Sonim XP3 Quest is bright yellow and festooned with rubber. Built in line with military specs, it can withstand most heavy-duty stress testing.
Designed by LA graffiti artist Mister Cartoon, the Motorola VE440 sure makes a statement with its stylized chassis and street art decals. Unfortunately, since the call quality is so poor and ringtones so gag-worthy, we can't actually recommend it as anything more than a showpiece.
Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini
"Small" may be the first thing that pops into mind when you see the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini. At 3.3 inches long by 2 inches wide by 0.6 inch deep, it's probably the most diminutive Android phone there is.
Verizon Wireless Razzle
A texting phone with a QWERTY keyboard, the Verizon Wireless Razzle conceals a twist. Literally swivel the lower half to use either the keyboard or the music player controls. As a bonus, the keyboard tilts up for improved ergonomics.
The Just5 J509 has roomy buttons and a whittled-down feature set. The biggest surprise? It's a senior-friendly phone, not a calculator.
Though it isn't the stellar phone we thought it could be at first glance, the Motorola Backflip's rear-facing QWERTY keyboard and navigational trackpad behind the screen will raise a few eyebrows.
The small, pod-shaped Kin One isn't only striking for its sci-fi design and distinctive black-on-white look. If you have it, it's also sure to gain attention as one of the shortest-lived phones on the market; Microsoft discontinued its two Kin phones June 30, just weeks after the May 6 debut.
