The iPhone remains as one of the most celebrated cell phones of all time. But beyond all the hype, it is a very good music phone. The touch interface is innovative, the music quality is superb, and its media feature set is top notch. Of course, the compatibility with iTunes Music Store doesn't hurt either.

Sony Ericsson has won acclaim for its Walkman phones and for good reason. The handsets are easy to use and come crammed with cool music-centric features and excellent sound quality. The W580i is available from AT&T and offers a sleek slider design.

There's a reason the LG Voyager VX 10000 for Verizon Wireless looks like the iPhone; it's also quite comparable in the features department. Support for Verizon's 3G network means you can download music over the air while stereo Bluetooth lets you to use a wireless headset. Also, the expansive touch screen offers vibrating feedback.

The Nokia 5300 Xpress Music is available both with T-Mobile and as an unlocked model. Inside its different but easy-to-use design is an exceptional music player and a broad range of features. We loved the quality of its speakers and its external music controls.

Sprint's LG Muziq LX570 is the best music phone for the carrier. Inside its attractive flip design is a wealth of music features including streaming radio from Pandora and support Sirius satellite radio. It also offers satisfying performance, wireless song downloads, and external music controls.
