We came across Amazon’s list of best-selling smartphones today, and thought we’d dig through it a bit.While Amazon’s ranking aren’t perfect, it does provide a good snapshot of what people are buying right now.

Some of your favourites are there, of course — Nokia’s Lumia 900, Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus, and the like.

But surprisingly, we had never even heard of the phone in the number one slot.

#10 Motorola DROID RAZR (16 GB, white)

When we reviewed this phone in November, we were less than impressed.

Motorola wants you to be love with how thin the phone is but makes no mention of how tall and wide it is. (Very tall, very wide).

That being said, enough people found the new RAZR to be right up their alley and now it's among the best-selling phones on Amazon.

Price with new contract: $0.01

Full retail price: $800

#9 Nokia Lumia 900

We consider this phone to be mediocre at best.

It was basically Microsoft's last shot at shaking up the mobile market with its Windows Phone platform, but that game still feels like there are only two players sitting at the table -- iOS and Android.

Despite this, the interface and hardware are really, really pretty.

Price with new contract: $49.99

Full retail price: $499.99

#8 Samsung Galaxy Note

This hefty thing blurs the line between tablet and handset, making it one of the most controversial devices to make it to consumers' hands in recent memory.

We think it comes across as an oversized Pop Tart. Too big.

Price with a new contract: $229

Full retail price: $749.99

#7 Blackberry Curve 8530

The only BlackBerry device to make it into Amazon's top 10, the Curve is a tried and true RIM workhorse. It's affordable and intuitive to use.

Price with a new contract: $69.00

Full retail price: $353.20

#6 Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket

The Galaxy S II Skyrocket is a souped up version of Samsung's flagship phone. We're impressed with its hardware, especially the 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and an 8 MP camera that can shoot full 1080p HD video

Price with a new contract: $79.99

Full retail price: $599.99

#5 Motorola DROID RAZR (16 GB, black)

This is the same phone as the one in the number 10 slot, just in black.

Price with a new contract: $0.01

Full retail price: $799.99

#4 Samsung Galaxy S II Epic Touch

Amazon's product description for this phone boasts a nice 8.7 hours of talk time for those of us who still actually use a phone to talk.

It's powered by a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, a slick 8-megapixel camera, and GPS capabilities.

Price with a new contract: $49.99

Full retail price: $599.99

#3 Samsung Galaxy Nexus

Any Android haters only need to be pointed as far as the Galaxy Nexus to see that Google's mobile operating system has serious appeal.

But the Nexus's hardware is a winner as well -- 4G LTE connectivity for killer web browsing, a 5 MP camera, and 32 GB of storage make this a great phone on a number of fronts.

Price with a new contract: $49.99

Full retail price: $799.99

#2 Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX (32 GB, black)

The RAZR MAXX is nearly identical to the standard RAZR, but it boasts more battery life.

It's a little thicker to than its cousin to make that possible, of course.

Price with a new contract: $199.99

Full retail price: $749.00

1: Samsung Bright side

And the best-selling phone on Amazon is...pretty unremarkable.

The Samsung Bright side strikes us as a slightly souped-up version of a freebie phone you'd get with a contract through your provider. With a flip-out QWERTY keyboard and a 3.2 megapixel camera, this guy comes across as the smartphone's anemic cousin.

Price with a new contract: $0.01

Full retail price: $299.99

Opinion is pretty divided on the Lumia
