Samsung Galaxy Note. Every morning all of my previuos evenings recorded TV is uploaded to my phone (primarily for The Daily Show, and Colbert). I used to do this with my Samsung Vice (2.25" screen) and I really like the upgrade to the Note. It's almost like being there!!

Use a corporate BB for work, but have a HTC One V for personal use. The One V is a nice compact and affordable phone.

I have an iPhone 4 and my wife a 4S. We love our iPhones and how they interact with all our iPads, ATV, and macs. Looking to upgrade to an iPhone 5 in the next month or two.

Blackberry. Tried the Samsung and returned it. Touchscreen typing is not for me. And the Samsung had far worse reception.

BB does everything I need and very well.

Why's there only 1 choice? Some people have more than 1 phone....

In HD, even the commercials are enjoyable!

I recently went from a Samsung Captivate to Nokia Lumia 920.

My wife has a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and she loves it.

Android all the way. Currently an Nexus S user, but it's getting old. Looking at the Note 2, or may wait to see what the Note 3 will be like.

I use a Sony Xperia Tipo. I didn't want to have a smartphone, so I bought a very small and cheap one. However, I like it very much and it has a good quality and now I'm thinking about buying a bigger one.

Started with a Palm Treo, then a Samsung Galaxy, then a Motorola Atrix, then a Galaxy S3, now a Samsung Note 3. Note 3 by far the most advanced smart phone I have ever used or have seen, what a perfect piece of magic!

HTC One, love it, had an S4, glad I made the move to HTC. The aluminum case has a way better feel.

I really like Sense, but I could do without blink feed

Last year, I mentioned I had a Google Nexus 1. I now have a Google Nexus 5, made by LG. I no longer have to worry about running out of memory for installing apps.

I haven't lost my mind. It's around here...somewhere...

I have a Blackberry Z30 and wouldn't want anything else.

Running native BB10 apps and almost all Android apps makes it in a class of its own.

I like you James have a Z30. I used to have on my SIII an app called app of the day. I can't seem to find the same app on BB. They do have something that has free apps on a daily basis, I've loaded it, but it only worked for a couple of days. Now when you open the app it is empty.

Lumia 1020. WP8.1 is the best smartphone OS and there's only a few missing apps that I would actually use.



When I had Android phones would always be rooting and alternative ROMs to try and get the phone working the way I wanted. iOS had to be jailbroken to be remotely useable and even then it pales in comparison to WP8.1, BB10, or any flavour Android. WP8.1 just works great with limited playing around.



The best thing is that I'm free of Apple and Google spying on me. While MS may not be all that benevolent either, it's privacy policies are infinitely superior to those other two.
