Welcome to CNET Top 5, the show that counts! I'm Tom Merritt. Every month we do a most popular list, and every month it's dominated by cell phones. So, we know what cell phones are popular. But are those the best? Nee my friends. Not always. We consulted with the CNET cell phone editors and present to you the Top 5 best cell phones. Let's count 'em down. At No. 5, the Palm Pre Plus. This is the version of the Palm Pre for Verizon users. Its versatility helps users balance personal and work lives. And the Plus has some improved features and design over the original Pre. Coming in at No. 4, the BlackBerry 9700. This is a sleek powerful messaging phone for texters and e-mailers. Just don't expect too much from its Web browser and you'll be happy. Up to No. 3, the Motorola Droid. It has a gorgeous Display, is lightning fast, and has long talk time. Plus, it actually has good call quality. You can make calls on it! It doesn't roam the world though, and its music and video functions could use some sprucing up. Sliding in at No. 2, the Apple iPhone 3GS. Everybody knows its music and video features, as well as its touch-screen interface are great. The 3GS also has MMS, and video recording. Too bad its call quality is so poor. Before we get to No. 1, it's time for another lame prize. Answer our question correctly at the post for this Top 5 at blog.cnettv.com and you could win...This inflatable...cube...from the IFA consumer electronics show. Signed by the CNET TV crew. Here's the question. What does IFA stand for? Good luck. All right. Let's get to our No. 1 on our list of best cell phones. The top of the chart. At No. 1, it's...the HTC Nexus One. Is it the 1GHz snapdragon processor that Kent German calls "zippy"? Is it the AMOLED display that everyone calls pretty? Maybe it's the enhanced voice dialing or noise cancellation features that don't get as much hype? Whatever it is, the Nexus One, on T-Mobile or unlocked, is No. 1 on our list. Well That's it for this edition of CNET Top 5. Don't forget to answer our lame prize question at blog.cnettv.com for a chance to win the inflatable red parallelogram thing. It's signed!
