You aren’t alone! Despite being the fastest growing mobile OS platform, there is still a lot of confusion about what is actually an Android phone and what isn’t.

Things aren’t made a whole lot easier by phone manufacturers; there’s an Android phone named Droid, there’s an HTC Android (but it’s not a Droid), the Samsung Android isn’t the same Android as HTC’s, and Dell’s Android looks totally different than any of them. Add to the confusion the fact that each manufacturer throws it’s own skin on the phones and certain features are disabled by their carriers, and you’re left with a load of possibilities.

This means that your Android phone may look nothing like your friend’s Android phone.

In an effort to help clear up what Android might look like on different carriers, we here at Stolen Droids have put together this handy chart (click for full sized version).
