LG Lotus Elite

We've compiled a list of phones that caught our eye with their unique or attractive designs.
The LG Lotus Elite is a messaging phone with a unique square design. It is sleeker and sexier than the first LG Lotus, and we like the stunning red color of this particular model.

Motorola Crush

At first glance, you might think that the Motorola Crush is upside down. Instead of being below the touch screen, the call buttons and the shortcuts are at the top.

Motorola Droid X

The Motorola Droid X boasts a gorgeous 4.3-inch touch screen that will certainly turn heads. It has great multimedia features like an 8-megapixel camera with HD video capture, HDMI output, and DLNA support.

HTC Evo 4G

The HTC Evo 4G joins the Droid X in the mega smartphone category with its large 4.3-inch display. The display is stunning, and we have to give props to its handy pop-out kickstand on the back.

Apple iPhone 4

The Apple iPhone 4's good looks certainly makes it one of the prettiest smartphones of the year. It has a gorgeous touch screen, thanks to Apple's Retina Display, and it's clad in Gorilla glass on both the front and the back.

Kin One

Of the two Kin phones, the Kin One has the more interesting design and is sure to turn some heads. At first glance, it doesn't even look like a phone. It's squarish in shape but with rounded edges, and the front section of the slider phone is smaller than the back part, which adds to its unique look.

Samsung Vibrant

Out of all the Samsung Galaxy S series models, we'd have to say the Samsung Vibrant is the sleekest and sexiest one of the bunch. The look is rather familiar, but the combination of the slim profile, clean design, and rounded edges is really pleasing to the eye. Also, at 4.82 inches tall by 2.54 inches wide by 0.39 inch thick and 4.16 ounces, the Vibrant makes for a nice travel companion, slipping easily into a pants pocket and feeling lightweight in the hand.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro

The most notable thing about the X10 Mini Pro is its diminutive size. Unlike almost every other smartphone on the planet, you can hide it behind a credit card, and if you have especially large mitts, you might be able to close your hand completely around it. All that, and the Mini Pro actually has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

LG dLite

The LG dLite sparkled and dazzled its way into our inner adolescent heart. More closely resembling its Korean cousins than any of its American siblings, the dLite is utterly girly in every way, with blinking lights, pastel colors, and cartoonish wallpaper.

RIM BlackBerry Torch

The RIM BlackBerry Torch definitely caught our eye with a whole new design. It has both a touch screen and a vertical slide-out QWERTY keyboard--a first from RIM. It was also the first handset to debut with BlackBerry OS 6, which introduces a brand-new user interface.

RIM BlackBerry Style

The RIM BlackBerry Style is the first BlackBerry handset to have a full QWERTY keyboard housed in a clamshell design. Its unique square shape and rounded corners also contribute to a comfortable feel in the hand.

Motorola Flipout

AT&T's Motorola Flipout continues the strange tradition of square phones. It has a roomy keyboard, though the display is too small for a smartphone.

Motorola Droid Pro

The Motorola Droid Pro has an attractive HVGA touch screen in addition to a very BlackBerry-esque keyboard that is sure to attract the mobile business professional. It also has enterprise-friendly features and both GSM and CDMA chipsets.
