Android VPN experiences/suggestions?

What VPN would you suggest using on an Android phone? My main motivation for using a VPN is to improve privacy/security while accessing the internet while away from home ( coffee shops, hotels, etc ).

For a couple days now, I've been using the free version of Hotspot Shield. I'll probably switch to a non-free VPN before long. So far Hotspot Shield seems fine but if there's a better choice, I would like to know. If you are an Android user with VPN experiences ( good or bad ) I would be interested in about those experiences.
Some of my concerns are: reliability, speed, ease of use, cost ( $5 / month seems reasonable but $25 / month would be excessive ). There may be other things that I *should* be taking in to consideration but am not.
One possibility would be to set up a home based VPN and access the net through it. That's probably more trouble than it's worth but if you've done that and are happy/unhappy with the results, please chime in.
