I use few of them, all Android: Nexus (1,4,5) and Galaxy (S2,S3,S4,Note II).

When looking for a handset I start with this table
https://www.ifixit.com/smartphone_repairability
The prerequisite is for the smartphone to have a score of 7 or above (then I can fix it myself)...

Loving my BB Z10. It could use a bigger battery for heavy users, but being removable and/or having the spare batterypack helps.
OS 10.3 arriving soon.. looking forward to that and seeing a Passport live.

I have tried lots,but no apple.Before I had HTC,s and then went with Samsung(S2,S3,NOTE1&2 with a much better interface then older HTC's(Amaze 4g,Sensation).I thought HTC'S were finished for me as the were heavy and did not really like there interface and would also need to pry the Battery for stable contact.However several months ago I got an HTC One M7 and I was impressed.Still have it and really like it.

I keep coming back to Samsung devices. Say what you will about Touchwiz and all, but after trying a lot of Android phones I'm back to a Note 3.

yup, i'm also a fan of touchwiz
I prefer android over iOS, and just find touchwiz more intuitive than some of the other android offerings

Wish I could change my vote. I voted Apple back then. Switched to a Nexus 5 since.

I have the Samsung Note 3, I would definitely go for the Note 4 if my phone died tomorrow and I didn't have insurance.

My opinions and time are all my own.

I was looking seriously at the Note 4 but my wife got an iPhone 6 to replace her old BB. She works nights in some isolated locations (she's a PSW) so it's nice to be able to use an app like Find my iPhone to make sure she's not in a ditch. She can also use it to see where I am on my commute. Still using my 4S but am patiently waiting for my 6 Plus.

Moto E 2nd Gen. Simply for the lower cost but plenty adequate for my use. Had a Bold 9900 from my expired Bell plan which is a nice phone but dated.
