More and more people are switching to smart phones to get on the Internet, access their e-mail and even get driving directions.Good Housekeeping tested 25 of the newest smart phones to help customers make their choices.

One winner was the Blackberry Bold 9700. The testers say it's great for those who like sending out lots of texts and e-mails.

"One of our top winners was the IPhone 4. Consumers loved the really intuitive interface and with over 200,000 apps available now there's really something for everyone," said Rachel Rothman of Good Housekeeping.

Then there are smart phones by HTC. The T Mobile HD2 scored points. It has a large screen and great for showing off photos and videos. But some considered it clunky.

"The Verizon HTC Incredible is another one of our top picks. Consumers also found this one really intuitive and the response of the touch screen was a major plus," said Rothman.

Rounding out the top 5 is the Sprint EVO 4G. It's extremely fast with a large screen. Testers described it as very intuitive.
