I don't think N-gage deserve to be in this list, it was good phone overall, and it sold a lot in India.......

I actually had far better luck with my Blackberry Storm than I did with my original Blackberry Curve, really wasn't a bad phone, just underwhelming.

Out of the phones I've had, I've hated:

-Audiovox 8500, just awful
-LG Chocolate, those capacitive buttons were the worst
-Blackberry Curve, kept breaking
-Droid X, not really the phone's fault I suppose, it was a combination of a dud battery and an unstable launcher

In your review of it you said one of the pros of the Dell Streak is that is has a "streamlined & clean look."

Of course we all know the Samsung Glyde was bad with its touch screen issues, and I had a few of em. The LG Ally was pretty bad because it was outdated, slow, and always told me my memory was full, even though it wasn't full.

Samsung s8300: the worst phone ever made (the slowest ui ever, the worst loudspeaker, the worst keyboard, the worst build quality. The only thing i liked was the camera.). I'll never buy Samusung again, beacuse they make very weak, and ugly phones (Samsung used to make very beautiful phones before Galaxy series). When my Samsung d900i fell from the bench, the display was destroyed, i had to pay 100 € to replace it :(
Btw, i had replaced s8300 with the Nokia n95, which is the best phone i have ever had (along with SE w950) :D

Fusion Garage Grid 10 tablet. Tons of potential, never got off the ground and was a pain to load apps on. Cheap experiment that never got used.

Worst, or most troublesome I should say, was the Verizon Wireless XV6700. I could do bicep curls with it, but text, emails, and calls? Not so much. I think my best so far is this Razr M I have now. May not be best for everyone, but does everything I had hoped it would and more.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

My first Android phone: the Samsung Intercept. My God, it was that very phone that turned me off to Android. The design was fine and I liked the keyboard, but Android ran so horribly on it. It kept freezing, I'd miss calls, and it was SLOW!!! The jump from the Intercept to the Galaxy Nexus was a like godsend.

you consider PlayBook a worst gadget coz of its price launch?! yes, it was a huge pricetag!!! but far more capable!! and i think (and imore.com think too) it is the best below $200 7" tablet you can get!!! yeah, it dont have that much of ecosystem, but that will just be fulfill later!

i disagree with N97 too! its not that horrible! i think there's more horrible devices out there!
