Thursday Poll: Your Current Phone is?

Since another major phone has been released, I’d say it is time to ask the readers of this fabulous community what they are currently rockin’. In the last 2 months, we saw Verizon introduce 3 of the top Android phones ever made in the Rezound, RAZR and Galaxy Nexus. And since this also happened to be the time that millions of original DROID owners were coming due on their contracts, we can imagine that at least a few of these “Big 3″ were purchased.

So, which is it?

What is your current phone?

    I got my Nexus Saturday night and then had my bachelor party that same night. I got wasted and must have dropped it and chipped it in two places. I’m totally bummed and felt totally crappy! Funny and sad story for everyone : ) Awesome phone btw!!!

  • Earleepa

    I paid for a nexus the day they went on sale but Verizon lacked the foresight to have enough in stock so that everybody that wanted one would get one so now I’m looking at maybe two or three more weeks of using a fascinate that I bought off of ebay when my og died so I wouldn’t have to use my upgrade till now. Next time Verizon, pull your head out of your rear end and have enough on hand so everybody that wants one gets one. If the oil companies ran their businesses like Verizon runs theirs I’d be walking to work 4 days out of 5 .

  • Rational Man

    I’m waiting to hear if there’s any shoes dropping regarding the Nexus. I was tempted with the Bionic and the Thunderbrick, glad I didn’t pull the trigger on those, so as soon as I get the all clear and the price drops a bit, I’ll be on there. 

    I JUST got into the whole rooting thing on my DInc, so it’s like a whole new toy for me to keep occupied with.

      I know you are trolling, but what exactly are you basing this on?  I know some are having problems, but I will bet if you poll most users, they are perfectly happy (me being one of them).  I have not problem if you want to feel the need to justify your purchase, but there is no reason to be a snot-nosed brat on every post.

      Go get the phone and try it for a week, or STFU about it.  Get a life, idiot.  It is people like you that make this site almost not worth reading, and makes others act in kind. 

      I happen to own a gnex, and have not owned any others, so I do not comment on the others.  I personally did not like the feel of the razr, so I did not buy.  Let people have their opinion and you can have yours.

  • Anonymous

    We all know that all these geeks wanted the nexus, that is why the % is higher. The razr is best.

    • Anonymous

      Did you vote for the Razr 600 times? Lol

    • mons

      The Razr is one of the ugliest phones I’ve seen in recent years.  Those huge bezels make me want to throw up.  As much as its thinness is a selling point – I hate the way it felt in my hand.  The rounded backs of the Rezound and Nexus are much more comfortable.

      • http://twitter.com/fritzo2162 Doug Zbikowski

        Wow, exaggerate much? It’s not like it has a gooey green mucus screen or anything…

        • mons

          I’m not exaggerating.  When I went to pick up my GN I also checked out the Razr and Rezound out of curiousity.  I was blown away by how wide the razr is – the bezels and that silver rim are huge.  I think my old DX was much better looking.

    I’m calling bull. I’ll agree that the Nexus is the best phone available now but no way has it outsold the next best competitor by over 4 to 1. I know taking a poll from a readers at a site like Droid_Life is going to be skewed to the general public but I gave a hard time believing that it was able to gain such a lead in what a week.

    Don’t get me wrong, this is in no way a knock on the Nexus. I have a Bionic, the most bitched about phone of 2011 and I would love a Galaxy Nexus, but I had an OG Droid that was just asking to be brought out into the field and shot. No way would it have made it until December and besides a few glitches, I am very happy with my Bionic. Getting all of the new phones in my hands is not an option and I am jealous of those who can, so its pretty much one phone every 12-18 months and I think for the most part peoples decisions on a new device is dependent on their needs and not what fanboys claim in these forums. So as I’m trying to get at is regardless how great the Galaxy Nexus is, it’s hard to believe that a site dominated by a fanboy community (Samsung, HTC, Moto) that one device can become an overwhelming favorite in just one week. This poll is about as legit as an Iranian student council vote.

    • http://twitter.com/fritzo2162 Doug Zbikowski

      What’s so hard to believe? It’s a desirable phone, it was on sale many places, making it even more attractive, and it had limited stock, giving bragging rights if you got one.

      • Sk102704

        Whats so hard to believe? Are you serious? That this phone has outsold every other Android model by over 5 to 1 now in 1 week. That’s whats hard to believe. Limited stock huh?

        • BigBox

          Only sold 5 to 1 to the readers of this site. Probably not the same in real life, but the GN is blowing up! I went to my local verizon store to play with it the day i came out and watched a few get sold. Went back the next morning to grab 2 for the wife and myself and 3 others were sold. Exchanged mine a few hours later (wouldn’t charge, call quality), and still another handful of people were buying the GN. Even the manager admitted the GN was selling better than the other 2. Was only in the store long enough to take care of my business… so yea, dont dismiss it.

          • Sk102704

            I’m not saying its not selling like hotcakes, I’m saying no way in one week has it sold 5 to 1 over any other Android model, even for people that visit this site. Clearly there are some people who are a little too proud of their new toy and have inflated the numbers with multiple votes.  As somoene commented here, he was able to vote 3 times for the same phone.

          • 41unique

            allot of the GNexus users are clearing the history (cookie etc…) and voting many times, so the poll is not correct! If you read more you will see that some has voted for the GNexus more than 5 times or more.

    • mons

      I can’t speak for anybody else, but I saved my upgrade for a long time to get a Nexus.  I was tired of my Eris so I picked up a used DX this past January or February to hold me over.  All the signs were pointing towards ICS coming out at the end of this year, and there were early rumors the accompanying Nexus would be on Verizon.  This makes me sound hipster – but I was waiting for the GN before it was announced.

  • Dcrb4

    While I maybe out of line,I think this poll is very much one sided. I paid retail for the Rezound and think  it got me the BEST phone that Verizon has to ofrfer on their network. Even though the continue to promote the Razr & Nexus, I believe the Rezound will end up TOP DOG when all said and done!just my ,02 cents.

    • http://www.ashevilletechnologyservices.com Dan Brown

      I had planned on getting the Rezound…. still on my DInc from April 2010, which has been a really great phone. I love HTCs build quality and reliability. Even before Android, I had HTC winmo phones.

      BUT, I’ve given in to the Nexus and ICS hype! …not that I think the samsung build is very good, it’s likely not… I just really want a Nexus phone, updates from Google, and of course first on the block with ICS. I know Rezound and others will get ICS eventually, but will Sense still cover it up? I’ve actually loved Sense, but Android is finally refined enough to not need a skin. I’m ready for a pure experience, and it looks like many others are too. …if HTC made the Nexus device on vzw, without Sense and first to ICS, that’s what we’d be reading about.

    • Chris Clancy

      Rented a Rezound the day the holiday return policy went into effect…. got a gnex the day it dropped and while the Rezound is a nice device…. it is no nexus…. just isn’t….never will be… doesn’t mean it is a bad phone though.

  • ckeelers

    Yep. Original Droid owner here and I’m so glad I waited. It was a loooooooooooonng 2 years with several “You know, I think it’s time to upgr-.. wait… naaah only 6 more months to go! I can wait!” moments but f@#! yeah I’m so glad I did. Love this thing!

  • LinuxLover

    An iPhone because I couldn’t stand the wait until the Bionic appeared almost 9 months after it was introduced, and nothing like it was originally designed to be like, either. If I had to do it all over again, I’d still buy an iPhone. I’m completely happy!

    • ckeelers

      Ha, your name and choice of phone are… well just… oh the irony. ;)  But hey in all seriousness, despite my love for Android, iPhones are solid. Glad you’re content!

      • LinuxLover

        Yeah, I thought for sure I’d be sporting some Android goodness, but I was just fed up waiting. On the rebound, I bought the competition and haven’t looked back. One thing that’s actually nice about it is the closed nature of it. Think of it this way, Linux distros actually prefer you to get all of your software via the repos. That way, they can be tested and insure a clean system. The iPhone does the same thing, but takes away your choice. I have a feeling that Android isn’t as buttoned down as real Linux and isn’t a secure as it should be.

    • Tim242

      Do you really think this poll indicates sales???? Most phone buyers do not read phone blogs, much less this particular one. There are more nexus people, because it just came out. They are coming here looking for news of an update to fix its many issues.

  • http://www.facebook.com/lukewoodruff1 Luke Woodruff

    If only i had the nexus. 

    • Tim242

      You’d be disappointed. It does not live up to.the hype. It has the worst battery life ever. Signal is not great. Camera is just barely ok. Screen isn’t the most responsive…especially in the browser. It is just ok. Not horrible, but not great either. My battery cover won’t even latch at the bottom now. I was changing batteries out, due to the awful battery life. That is what killed it for me. Samsung is not for me.

      • Anonymous

        Wow dude maybe you got a lemon. Battery life is decent especially for an LTE phone. With a mix of LTE and 3G I get about 12 hours.

        But outside of that, this is by far the fastest and smoothest phone ever. And just wait until devs make ROMs for this bad boy, sky’s the limit. I also find the screen SUPER responsive.

        Maybe you should swap and get a new one within your return period?

      • http://twitter.com/fritzo2162 Doug Zbikowski

        Yeah, same here. I love mine, my battery life isn’t any worse than my Droid OG, and the screen is beyond fantastic. I think you got a bad one or something.

      • dieringer scott

        I get 8 hours of moderate to heavy use on 4g and my screen is super responsive. Maybe you got a dud

    D3 times 2. Crap phone with little support. Motorola seems to be intent on getting the latest phone out. With the Droid 4 just around the corner I don’t see them fixing all the issues this phone has. My last Motorola phone. I love android, but this phone might drive me from the platform all together.

      Last week when I called VZW cust service about an upgrade question, the chick was like “Awwww you got the Nexus? Do you love it?” me: “of course, it’s awesome” then she said “I got the Bionic (with a sad voice) :(” And yes I did save my upgrade for the GNex. I was eligible the beginning of September – heard about the Bionic, waited, heard about the Razr, waited, heard about the GNex (about a day later), Yup that’s what I’m getting. Easy decision for me.

    • http://www.facebook.com/treswaters Tres Nugget Waters

      I’d love nothing more to see another unlocked Blur-less Moto…especially if they kept up with the screen quality of the RAZR. Every other Moto phone’s display has been very lackluster to be modest. My Nexus is the first Non-Moto phone I’ve owned in a decade only because everything since the original Droid has been such a disappointment (to me because I demand a device w/ freedom and screen quality, but I understand this is subjective).

    • QtDL

      I’m no Moto hater and they do make good phones. I just don’t like the skins, bloatware, restriction, and long updates (not bug fixes, but 6 months before they get ICS on their phones? seriously?). I had the OG Droid and it didn’t have any of that stuff which I liked.

      • http://twitter.com/gkcohen67 Gregory Cohen

        i had the OG DROID too before i bought the razr. the last 3 months of which it had a severely  cracked screen and still worked like a charm.

        • QtDL

          I know right. I dropped my OG so many times and never a scratch or crack. It did have a soft case on it but it still took some serious tumbles and never stopped working. He is in retirement now – might have to give him a new job, like alarm clock as others have used theirs for. :)

        • Tim242

          One Android phone won’t sell more than iPhone, because of how many choices there are. It’s not because they aren’t good enough. It’s like if Pepsi only comes in blue cans, but coke comes in every color imaginable. There couldn’t be any one color coke to sell more than blue Pepsi. Your argument is very flawed. By the way, there are many iphones, not just one. Glad you love your Razr. I’m about to.return my Nexus, for the Razr. It is much nicer.

    • Matthew Rosidivito

      History begs to differ. I remember running Android on my old HTC Tytn II (Windows Mobile Phone) back in 2008, less than a year after the iPhone was released. When you consider development time, I think both projects really started around the same time.

But then again that was when everyone had the same phone and everyone was focused on helping each other and uniting against the iPhone instead of waging flame wars against one another. Nowadays it’s just sad really, too many people who think they have something to prove.

        If you really believe that then you don’t understand this site. Do you believe that Rezound news should not be posted here? I guess you hate Transformer Prime News, or any tablet news for that matter. I guess any post about Honeycomb should have been omitted up until the announcement of the Droid Xyboard since we didn’t know it would be on a Droid device until then. Google TV posts should be gone. Any post about the Galaxy line should be gone. The Galaxy SII was reviewed on Droid-Life. How dare Kellex post that here, right?

        I come here for the latest and greatest Android News. Fortunately for me I am on Verizon so I get all the Verizon Android News as well as the big non-Verizon Android news. As long as Kellex and his team does that I will be here reading, even if I have to quit reading comments; which is sad because they used to add so much useful content to the site.

      Chicken or Egg?

  • Anonymous

    I’m actually pleasantly surprised to see so many with the X and Thunderbolt still.  I guess they came right after us Original Droid users so they may still be waiting on their upgrades. 

    I’m definitely surprised the Nexus is so far ahead and the Razr and Rezound.  I think both are good devices, especially the Rezound, it’s realistically the best overall phone minus not having ICS.

    • http://www.facebook.com/treswaters Tres Nugget Waters

      The Rezound has the best screen quality overall, but just because it has a 1.5 ghz processor doesn’t make it faster than a 1.2 ghz processor of a different architecture. From what I understand the TI OMAP 4 and Exynos chips both beat the Snapdragon in performance.

      • Anonymous

        Don’t worry, I have the Nexus and I love it.  As I said the Rezound is better overall, camera, screen despite being smaller, cpu performs similar, gpu is better.  I wouldn’t buy it over the Nexus though.

        • http://www.facebook.com/treswaters Tres Nugget Waters

          I was worried about the GPU on the Nexus but after playing Shadowgun and GTA 3 I’m pleasantly surprised that there’s nothing to worry about. I haven’t seen the Rezound’s camera yet but I also didn’t have high hopes for the Nexus’s which was another pleasant surprise.

  • Anonymous

    Funny, I asked in my office today 7 people what they thought of the galaxy nexus and not one had even heard of it. In fact, none had heard of Droid-life either. You see, in the real world (non geek) people dont give a crap about unlocked bootloaders and Ics.  I know you all believe you are some HUGE community, but in the scheme of things, your 3000 phones is nothing and if the poll were taken in the general public, the outcome would be quite different. So go back to doing whatever it is you do with your gnex. Some sound so infatuated I honestly believe they sleep with their phones
