So my Galaxy 3 went bezerk on me, and now I have a Galaxy 4. I like it a lot, but I also was considering the Note 3. I like stylus because I write. Anyway, what phone do you have, and why isn't it a Galaxy?

Galaxy S3 mini. Why ? It's cheap, small and does everything I want. (At least after I flashed CyanogenMod)

Soon I need to make the move from T-Mobile to Sprint, and I wanna pick a good phone.

I use a Galaxy S2. I know, I live in the stone age. If I had my way, I'd be using an old flip phone. As awesome as smartphones are, they can do too much.

Agreed. I use an iPhone 5, but I'm not overfond of typing on a touchscreen.

I'd like a version with a slide-out keypad like my last phone. I guess it's just not future-y enough.

I have a Blackberry 8530, it's okay, kind of shit, luckily I'm going to upgrade it soon so I don't feel like such a cave dweller.

Galaxy S3 running 4.3 right now, but I'll probably get a Nexus phone to go with my T-mobile plan next time I upgrade.

You live under a rock, Catamari-kun. I can't live without my iphone 4, but I want a 5 with unlimited minutes.

I have a Nokia candybar that I've had for about 8 years now. On the rare occasion I need to make or take a phone call on the move, it serves the purpose.

Galaxy S3 running 4.1. This is my first smartphone, and I'm really loving all the things I can do with it that weren't possible before.

Not sure I'm going to make the switch to 4.3 just yet. I've heard some unsettling rumors about compatibility issues with older phones.

Used to have fun fiddling around with all sorts of neat stuff on my Samsung Galaxy S2 but it went kaput and now I have an iPhone 4S
It's actually kind of shitty, but the restrictive iOS is actually pretty neat because it can't be an infinite timesink.

The 4S is still fine. I use mine for connecting to my servers to fix things when out of the office (I've done that in an airport gate before now. Also as a pitch pipe for the choir, and tuner for instruments; GPS with maps when walking in the country; currency conversion and train timetables (including live feeds) when travelling; music and videos to watch when at a loose end. All these things can be done on any smartphone, I guess, but Android can't do them any better than iOS.

Indeed! I got one last year after my iPhone broke, and I'm really happy with the switch overall. I enjoy the widgets it has to offer, and it has really improved my productivity and kept me organized. Also, torrents? Fuck yeah.

(That's mostly a comment on Google Play and Android, I suppose.)

Same actually. Biggest problem is the size of the system memory. Really limits what apps I can download.

Memory size...! I'm quite frustrated that the max memory available for my Nexus 7 is only half of what I've already got in my much smaller 2-year-old iPhone.

Got an LG Lucid. Pretty decent smartphone that didn't cost a ton and preforms pretty darn well even though I've had it coming up on two years now. Runs 4.3 pretty well. Dunno if I'm going to be upgrading just yet though as it still serves me well.
