What smartphone are you using?

Purely out of nosiness ;) What smartphone is everyone using at the moment? How do you like it? Is there anything you'd rather have?

Currently using a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and loving it :)

OMG... I'm using my own Nokia N9... a not-quite-mine iPhone 5S and BB Z10 (for laughs ;) )... And now and again an ancient Nokia N91 - for being the BEST audio device this planet ever produced. Been wondering what to upgrade to from my N9 for ages. If Nokia get a grip on the Lumias' camera lag, I may well get a Lumia 930 or some such thing.

Ah, I'm curious what you'll make of the Z1! Give us an impression in a couple of days, sir.

Will do! Might be slightly biased in its favour if it can simply handle more than an hour of screen-on time though...

I'm sure it will.

I'm using the LG G2 and have been on battery for 25 Hours 40 mins with 56 minutes screen on (mostly 100% brightness) and have 67% battery left.

Overall, I'm loving the phone, used to think the camera was too slow though but they fixed that in 4.4.2 only to introduce an audio bug.
Great phone, let down only by LG's incompetence.

iPhone 5S.

TJ, any issues since iOS7.1.1? One I'm using has some random camera issues since upgrade. Freezes after a couple of burst shots, or refuses to start ( camera app startes, but viewer is black) ...
Plus issues syncing with iPhoto events. Though, that could be Mavericks fault!

I've not had any issues, haven't come across any so far anyway.

Xperia ZL, Note 2, Moto G -> iPhone 5c

mrew42  Apr. 28, 2014 at 19:18

HTC One M8 since last week.
In a fit of pique I took out a 2 year contract when my Nexus 4 & Tesco mobile signal spent all weekend letting me down.
I haven't regretted it.
Yet.

Do you like the 5c? Oddly , I preferred it to the 5S...

careless_adi  Apr. 28, 2014 at 21:39

Sony Xperia Z2.

rhinopaul  Apr. 29, 2014 at 07:57

iPhone 5 - **** battery since 7.1
Lumia 920 (running 8.1) - Lovely phone, great camera, weighs a tonne

B1zarr0Prim3  Apr. 29, 2014 at 08:29

Never used 5S. This is my first iPhone for long term use. Don't know yet if I like it - need more time.

I'm using my trusty Note 2 running the new official Samsung 4.4.2 firmware. It's updated the UI a bit and the phone feels a little smoother and snappier in everyday use. Battery life seems about the same; very good, in other words.

I did also have an 8GB Moto G, but that is now with a trusted new owner, who will use it far more than I ever would, since I already had a Note 2. Despite me getting rid of it, I can't say enough good things about it, especially for the price. Also, I still get to see it every now and again, so that's nice :).

It's not bad, it's horrific. It's basically ruined a 5S in our household.

Battery issues. Namely, the battery life now feels like your using a 5 year old battery in an ancient, power inefficient smartphone.

Works fine for me, I'm still getting almost 2 days out of it.

Fancy swapping phones with my daughter haha :p?

jolla and blackberry z10 here, both fun:)

iPhone 5S, had every iPhone since they first came out.

I'm tempted by a Galaxy S4 with the recent price drop. That gorgeous 5" AMOLED screen is just calling out to me. Just not sure how I'd get on with it after using iPhones for so many years...

Lumia 1520, having sworn that I would *never* own a phablet.
Lumia 625 as a back-up/mi-fi and for testing Cortana - which may have inadvertently got me on an NSA watchist:

Me: "What's the weather in Trentham this weekend?"
Cortana: "The weather in Tehran will be..."

Overall I adore 8.1, mind you (as does my non-tech-savvy missus on her 1020, in particular the new Swype-a-like keyboard).
