Uber-awesome iPhone? Whatev. It seems like every six months there’s a new iPhone because Apple keeps “improving” the offerings and announcing their next baby. Time to step back from the hype and scratch below the surface of the smartphone war. There’s more out there than just the almighty fruit of the Apple tree.

T-Mobile’s fastest 4G Android-Powered smartphones do, in fact give the iPhone 4S a run for its money. Have a need for speed (and who doesn’t in this digital world)? Then you’ll love the Android’s faster dual core processors. And for those who like their tunes right away, T-Mobile’s 4G network combined with their fastest smartphones offer maximum theoretical download speeds of 42 Mbps on both the HTC Amaze 4G and Samsung Galaxy S II. After all, the iPhone 4S’ max theoretical download speed is a mere 14.4 Mbps.

Bells and whistles have become necessities. Many T-Mobile smartphone devices offer larger screens and Google Voice Search. Sophisticated photo software, available on certain models, make your point-and-shoot cameras look like child’s play.

Want the most connected, versatile plan for your buck? Right now, T-Mobile offers two lines for $49.99 per line, including an unlimited data, talk, and text plan. And that includes up to 2GB of high-speed data. With T-Mobile’s fastest smartphones, you can combine this plan with fast downloading on the T-Mobile 4G network (America’s largest).

View the footage. Spread the word. T-Mobile’s stylized smartphone videos are fused with humor, stop-motion animation, old-school graphics, and straight-up logic to make one massive point: T-Mobile’s Android-Powered phones don’t just go toe-to-toe with the iPhone 4S, they leave it in the dust.
