Would love to know what smart devices everyone is using and what you love or hate about them.

Myself: Note 3
Love: huge screen, great phablet and pretty fast.
hate: battery life. Lack of water proofing like the z3.

Still sporting an iphone 4 that I got almost 3 years ago when they finally hit $0 on contract.

Love: - the size (I am not looking forward to finding a replacement, as most have larger and less pocket friendly screens).
          - ease of use

Hate: - screen clarity is not up to today's standards
          - camera is pretty marginal as soon as lighting is reduced

Love & Hate: its apple. It runs great and hasn't given me any issues, whereas my previous android devices gave me some trouble. I hate paying a premium for apple.

HTC One M8 in rose gold.

Pros - Just about everything. MicroSD support was the best decision by HTC ever. Battery life is great with a custom ROM.

Cons - Camera is just meh. The M9 will hopefully end HTC's lackluster camera streak.

Note 2

Pros: large screen good for media, SD card slot, removable battery, good ROM support.

Con's: battery life sucks, ugly as sin, its Samsung.

Q10!

Pros: KEYBOARD KEYBOARD KEYBOARD!!! ,  OS (I'm in love with their Hub as for apps, they have Google Maps, that's all what I need and I live the swipe features).

Cons: Sometimes I need apps that aren't available, the pebble app today for example 😕 Size, I want BIGGER and thus the passport soon

Note 2

Love: Big screen for web browsing, my battery life is quite good, but not playing games on this phone. I get a full day out of mine no problem. Seems to do things very well for what I want it to do. Email, Web browsing, looking at maps, banking, reading and working on PDF documents. I really like this phone. I'm not playing around with ROMs on this phone this time. I need to make sure its solid for work and it has been.

Hate: My book case I use makes it massive. Pictures are ok, didn't seem much better then my note 1.

I worked as tech support for Bell Mobility for four years, so i had all the platforms on hand : windows mobile, blackberry, iphone and android. My first smartphone : Palm Treo 700WX with windows mobile. Touch screen with stylus, great battery life ( one week in idle) not able to install apps. BLACKBERRY 9700 : great for communication great keyboard not so good with entertainement great sound output. Iphone 3GS : amazing with multimedia stuff, cumbersome to use the keyboard by people with big fingers, amazing sound output. Now i use a galaxy s 3 the t999 : gorgeous screen, amazing sound output. Nexus 4 : booring, ordinary screen, deceiving audio output, yes i listen to a lot of music, online  or on device.

Nexus 5 now, still have 2  iphone 4.

Some vtech dect 6.0 thing from radio shack.
It has all these fancy features like call history and some address book thing I do not use.
It even has a clock and is jam packed with stuff!

Pros:
Faster to dial than a rotary!
Smarty pants features mentioned initially.
Buttons light up!

Cons:
Unlike a rotary or regular touchtone, does not work when the power is out.
Battery only lasts 3-5 days between charges depending on use.
$20 batteries every few years once they finally die, unlike rotary&touch tone.
Speakerphone mode not very loud or clear.
Gloss black face annoying to keep in good shape.

Other notes:
Reviewed model does not have an answering machine built in, but this reviewer prefers a microcassette machine anyway.

Wow with power like that phone you could rule the world. How fast is its boot time, does it play pacman? 😛

Dude, we were talking about cellphones not portable house phones!

MARSTG, I feel as though you are missing out on the humour of my post. 😛

All good 🙂

Think I will get a new note when the next one comes out. My note 3 has been great to me.

if you were going to get a new phone today what would it be?

I would probably go with either the note 4 or nexus 6. Note 4 would be my first pick because I like that they still have the sd card slot but I could live without it if needed. Just a nice feature for me.

I picked up a S6 for the wife when it came out. It's a nice phone for sure but the screen is too small for me.  I would of got a new phone but she broke her S4 😞

Note 2 still going strong for me!

Not sure what I'll be looking at when my contract is up this September, currently happy with my Nexus 4, but who doesn't love new tech to play with?

G4, Z4c and the Oneplus Two are what I'm interested in, although a few Chinese manufacturers have been releasing some really good looking phones.

Still running the Nexus 4! The battery life is starting to be shit but meh, don't feel like configuring a new phone haha.

My contract is now over since April so I might buy a Oneplus Two when they come out
