iPhone 4S

Who makes it: Apple
What it costs: $199 and up
Why we like it: Sure, the iPhone 4S is faster and has a whizzy 8-megapixel camera, but the main reason it stands above Android-based rivals, such as Samsung's Galaxy S II and Sony's Xperia Arc S, is Siri, the self-described "humble personal assistant." Just don't ask it to marry you.
