Loaded with core apps like Gmail and available on a variety of smartphone models from different service providers, Google's Android platform is giving Apple some serious competition. Here are four Android phones we like.

MOTOROLA CLIQ

This T-Mobile phone, which has a comfortable, slide-out keyboard, compiles texts, e-mails, and updates from Facebook and Twitter in one inbox, making it ideal for social networkers. If you lose it, you can easily remove the data remotely.
Cost: $199

HTC HERO

The most customizable phone of the bunch, Sprint's Hero features seven home screens you can populate with widgets providing stocks, news, and Twitter updates. Unlimited texting and GPS navigation are included in the service plan.
Cost: $179

SAMSUNG MOMENT

A good option for power users, this Sprint phone has a fast 800MHz processor and an ultrabright touchscreen display. The phone has an optical joystick for finer navigation control and a booming speaker for phone calls.
Cost: $179

MOTOROLA DROID

The Droid's 3.7-inch display, which is slightly larger than the iPhone's, delivers a superior Web browsing experience. The Droid, from Verizon, also offers support for Microsoft Exchange e-mail and includes a free Google Maps Navigation app.
Cost: $199
