A50 Op­tus, $571 op­

★★★★ THIS phone wants to tell you where to go. The Garmin-ASUS Nu­v­i­fone A50 is a Google An­droid phone with a fo­cus on nav­i­ga­tion that is ev­i­dent from its first screen: a screen that lets you find a route, look at a map or make a call. The A50 of­fers Aus­tralian maps from Navteq, a quick GPS sen­sor and street di­rec­tions. Those who want more can use its An­droid apps, 3-megapixel cam­era or MP3 player, though the phone is slower than some thanks to a 600MHz pro­ces­sor.
