What kind of smartphone do you use?

Simple question, just trying to see what kind of distribution of all the different smartphone operating systems we have here. Didn't feel the need to get into specific OS version numbers, but feel free to list what device or devices you're using. Sorry about you Symbian OS fans or Samsung's Bada, but I figure the Other option would suffice. Allowing multiple selections for people that are actively using multiple phones, but try not to count if you just have an old device that's been untouched for a year or something. Not counting tablets either.

Try to resist thread crapping and talking shit about other phones


As for me, I currently have a Nexus 4 as my personal phone, and an iPhone 4 that is work provided. Annoying carrying around 2 phones sometimes, but I can't use Android for work yet but I prefer it significantly to the iPhone for day to day use.

I've previously used a Galaxy Nexus, Samsung Vibrant (Galaxy S), Nokia Nuron, and Blackberry Pearl as personal devices, and used Blackberry 7290, 8700, Curve 8900, and 9810 (Torch 2) for work as well. Only thing I really haven't played with is a WebOS device.

Re: What kind of smartphone do you use?

I have a piece of shit called a "Pantech Link II" and while it is a smartphone (barely) it doesn't have a data plan, so it's really only good for voice and text. It's work provided, and I refuse to pay for a phone when I have a free one.

Samsung Galaxy S III, running CyanogenMod10.1.
Considered a Lumia 920 for awhile, but my interest has mostly faded. I'll reconsider Windows Phone 8 if/when my employer provides a phone for me.

Verizon Galaxy S3

Got it about 7 months ago after 5 years of being exclusively iPhone (orig., 3G, 4). Doubt I'll ever go back to iOS.

Had the OG Droid then switched to Droid X2. Never had any problems with either. I'm probably going to get a Droid DNA or a Galaxy Note next month.

Have an iPhone 5, my third of the series previously had a 3GS and a 4. My wife had an Optimus and an Intercept she now has my old 4 and loves it. She has spent more on iTunes in the past month than I have in 3 years.

Re: What kind of smartphone do you use?

iPhone 4S... Thinking about switching to the Galaxy S3 (or whatever the newest iteration is) when its time to upgrade. Depends on what the next iPhone looks like and what my mood is. Im perfectly happy with ios and it integrates well with my mbp, my iPad, and my mac mini, but Im in the mood for using something different an new for a while.

This. All though Android is much better now but fragmentation is still an issue IMO. iOS is just rock solid and polished even its a little dated now.

You used the "f" word, be careful, you will receive 100 links showing why you are wrong.

How is that now? My GS3 is still on 10. I put 10.1 on there in one of the very first nightlies and it was unstable and I hated it. Is it better now?

sprint optimus g. fast & good battery life. kind of surprised it doesn't have more dev support, but it's pretty solid as is, so no loss of CM never comes to it.
