Detailed review
Hard to believe, but the Vertu Ti is the best Android smartphone in the market. Its foam factor is the best; only perhaps next to iPhone5.
But what makes it truly the best Android ever is the hardware. They have distinctive physical keys for everything; a feature so critical for quick, precise and accurate navigation. Damn this is good!
Maybe one day, Vertu will bring the same high quality technology in a QWERTY keyboard phone. That would make it the best business phone ever!
