    iPhone and iPad. Largest ecosystem with the most high quality apps.

    Kinda of hard to answer since i dont own everything, lol.

    I use a GS3 and never had a Nexus 4 which im sure i would like but i do have a Nexus 7.

    So, i do like the added Touchwiz things on the GS3 though i do not use the Touchwiz launcher. Prefer Nova and Apex.
    We also have a iPad Mini and i do like it but i use the Nexus 7 a lot more

    So ill answer this way:

    Phone= GS3
    Tablet= Nexus 7

    I think most of the top competitors today do make very good products.

    Phone: Note Series. However, this is extremely tentative. I might go to an iPhone 5 for the simplicity of the ecosystem.

    Tablet: iPad series. No contest. I do however have a LOT of respect for the Nexus 7 and how it attacked the price market.

    No bias as I own numerous iOS and Android devices. With the exception of the N7 and partly due to Jelly Bean, my favorite hands down has to be the iPad.

    Just got a Nexus 7. Fun to use, but not as slick as an iPad. Still I voted for the iPhone as I'm using mine everyday without fail & enjoy it thoroughly :)

    Damn I voted other! That is wrong so please assume that the vote for the Nexus series now stands at 14 as that is what I meant to vote for :p

    Because I LOVE my Nexus 7 :D

    My favorites are as follows
    My Nexus One phone - I loved that and introduced me to Android, rooting and custom roms

    My iPad mini - best tablet, great size, lots of apps and books.

    Interesting. I think android phones are very good now and I'm sure a lot of people would argue they are better than iPhone. I think in the tablet space, i think android have a bit of catching up to do with ipad but they are catching up fast.

    The Galaxy Note 8 is not even close to making me want to completely dump the iPad, but I may get it over the Nexus 7.

    For usability/general day to day stuff/app ecosystem/nicest hardware/os I'd go for iPhone and iPad.

    For hacking around, Nexus series.

    I own an iPhone and a Nexus 7, but I'd be happy with any combination of iPad(s), iPhone, and/or Nexus 7/4 (and probably 10, haven't tried one).

    As a side note I've never actually had a hands-on experience with a Lumia or the new Blackberry, which I would like to try out, but can't imagine they'd sway my opinion.

    Right now Galaxy Note 2. Best portable computer that makes phone calls and fits in your pocket.

    Note 2 for Super Phone and when it comes out iPad mini Retina.

    In a few weeks I'll be getting hTc One and S4. Note 2 is THE best, the 5.5" screen is amazing and perfect. It was hard using anything less like when I bought the BlackBerry Z10.
