    I would be looking at the Galaxy S2

    Then I would get the Samsung Google Nexus S as it will have a lot better software support for future releases.

    Agree with the above

    Is there a budget you are trying to stick to?

    I have the Galaxy S although I would recommend it but you'll be using last years tech

    My pointers would be the Samsung Galaxy S2 or the Motorola Droid Razr

    Otherwise if it has to come out of that list then the Samsung Google Nexus S because being a Google phone it will be more up to date straight from Google

    On a related note, where would be the best place to purchase a Droid RAZR right now?

    A couple of things to help with the recommendations.
    What is your budget?
    How do you want to use your phone on a daily basis?
    Prioritise these in order of importance: Battery life, screen size, physical phone size, aftermarket ROMs, e-Penis.

    The Nexus S is a good device although it's not without it's flaws. The AU model has an LCD screen as opposed to the international versions AMOLED. I'm personally an OLED fan but just as many people dislike them.

    Of the latest bunch of Android handsets i'd recommend the Motorola Droid Razr and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus... but both will cost you a fair bit as their current top tier handsets.

    a girl at work is tiny. she has small hands. she wanted a phone. i kept suggesting she gets a HTC desire HD a little while ago as the aging nokia she has was dieing. she kept saying it was too big. guess what phone she ended up getting in the end after all this waiting. if you guessed samsung galaxy s2. you are right.

    Well DHD is bigger, thicker and heavier than the SGS2. I've seen heaps of tiny 5ft girls here in Hong Kong use the SGS2 with no problems.

    Those who think the SGS2 is big hasn't used one before, end of story. If you want big, try the Galaxy Note.
