Monday Poll: How Many Android Phones Have You Owned?


Since Android has taken over our lives, dating back to the original DROID push of late 2009, we know that many of you have owned a number of different handsets. For a while, we were all OG owners, but over the years as more devices have been launched, we can tell that readers have jumped between the latest and greatest devices with much greater regularity. We’re now in 2013, which means some of you have gone through 1.5 upgrade cycles and at least another phone or two.

So we’re curious, how many Android phones have you owned in your life? Feel free to list them out, as well. (Let’s not count tablets for now.)

  • G1 (retired), Moment (died horribly), Epic (sold to a Russian), Incredible 2 (exchanged after a few weeks) Droid 3 (sold on eBay, 216 dollars), Rezound (sold to a reseller). After all that I realized that I belong back to windows, I was sick of playing catch-up with newer technology.

  • Trevor

    Sony X10a, Nexus One, Droid X, Droid 2, Thunderbolt, Galaxy Nexus, Razr M, Galaxy S3. Thanks to ebay, some of those I only owned for a matter of days/weeks. Yes, it’s a problem.

    Currently I switch between the Nexus and GS3.

    See a pattern? (:

  • daveloft

    Nexus One -> Galaxy S -> Nexus S -> Galaxy Nexus.

    I also bought a used HTC Legend and used it for 3 weeks while my Galaxy S was out for repair. The second time I had to send my Galaxy S out for repair I went out and bought a Nexus S to replace it and then sold the Galaxy S as soon as it came back from repair.

    OG droid…LG Vortex and current razr

  • TheRobotCow

    I started out with a Droid 2 Global, Droid Incredible, Droid R2D2, then Galaxy Nexus. I still use my nexus but its not longer my main phone. Currently on an iPhone, but I still love my Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7!

  • I have had over 6 devices but only a total of 3 different models (HTC Thunderbolt x3 >> HTC Rezound x2 >> Droid Razr). Best of all, I have never had to officially “upgrade” my device because either Verizon or Asurion always seems to crap up and make a mistake just like how all of Asurion’s replacement Thunderbolts had touchscreen issues and how Verizon pushed out a buggy ICS update for the Rezound! Although I do kinda miss the Rezound…the Droid Razr’s battery leaves something to be desired!

  • HTC Incredible -> Droid Razr Maxx -> Nexus 4

    5. T-Mobile G2
    6. Barnes & Noble Nook Color
    7. Motorola XOOM (LTE)
    8. LG Optimus V

    20. Samsung Nexus 10 (16GB)
    21. Samsung Nexus 10 (32GB)
    22. LG Nexus 4

    I’ve included tablets as well, ’cause why not. I tend to sell my old devices pretty quickly once I get a new one, so the list isn’t quite as irresponsible as it seems. 😛

    • Feztheforeigner

      I think that’s just a little excessive… Great, but excessive…

      I’m a developer and only have 13 devices for testing (and fun) purposes.

      • Aardvark99

        If you had to choose a set of phones for typical (user-space, not ROM) app development / testing for Android which devices do you think are a must-have? Min platform is Gingerbread.

    • DOAbarrelroll

      In chronological order, including tablets:

      1. Motorola DROID

      2. Motorola DROID X
      3. Archos 70
      4. Motorola XOOM 4G
      5. SE Xperia Play
      6. Motorola DROID Bionic
      7. Samsung Galaxy Nexus (x2)
      8. Samsung Galaxy Note
      9. HTC One X
      10. ASUS Nexus 7
      11. HTC DNA

      That’s just Android devices, I’m not going to even bother trying to list all the other stuff. I generally sell most stuff immediately after upgrading, but it’s still overkill.

    • Simon Belmont

      Just curious. But why do you have two flavors of the N10? 😉

      Oh wait, never mind, you probably sold the 16GB to get the 32GB. That’s quite a list, and I have the B&N Nook Color and a 32GB N7 too. 🙂

  • Android Phone: Motorola Droid, Motorola Droid 3, Motorola Droid Razr, Motorola Razr (UK Version), Motorola Razr (Asia Version), Motorola Razr i, Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD, Motorola Atrix HD, Motorola BackFlip, Motorola FlipOut, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Samsung Galaxy S2, Samsung Galaxy Camera and more.

    I’ve owned 6.
    -Droid Incredible(random reboot issue, so it was replaced, otherwise it was great)
    -Samsung Captivate(severe lag issue, gps lock was terrible)
    -Motorola Atrix(first android phone that “just worked”, the screen was bland though)
    -Motorola Droid RAZR(terrible screen pixelation, form factor didn’t feel good in hand. Got rid of it after 3 weeks)
    -Galaxy Nexus(worked well until the jellybean update wrecked the gps lock)
    -Nexus 4(so far so good)

  • Justin

    OG Droid -> Galaxy S2 Skyrocket.

    I want the Nexus 4 and S3 to play with but I can’t justify them.

  • anthonydavisjr05

    LG Optimus V->T mobile G2->HTC Sensation->Galaxy S2

  • OG Droid -> VZW GNex

  • ExpectsItToWork

    GNex for 2 grueling months before I sold that overhyped POS with horrific batt life and got a Razr Maxx which I’m running stock ICS rooted on. Was a 3 device BB user before the GNex and am still waiting for the same level of reliability on this platform. Feature rich? Yes. Rock solid dependability? No. Def not marching in the iMtoostupidformorethanonebutton parade.

  • oliman37

    Does buying a droid OG 3 times count as 1 or 3 times? Could not make up my mind in the early years.

  • kejar31
