T-Mobile Vivacity

The Good Simple operation; Android 2.3 Gingerbread; Decent screen; Looks more expensive than it is.

The Bad Weak processor; Juddery scrolling.

The Bottom Line For a budget Android phone, you can't get much better than the T-Mobile Vivacity. It's got a lovely bright screen, a dashing, if not completely original, design and enjoys all the benefits of Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
