    I was going to post mine in the iPad forums but all of them had Apple products so I thought it was going to be bad if I mentioned an android product, haha.

    So, what device combo do you use?

    For on the go I only have my OnePlus One but since it's a phablet I don't need a tablet.. much. The battery does last all day but it's annoying when the phone's dead at 2am, haha.
    Thinking of getting a kindle next month for Christmas because I'm not a big tablet fan.

    What about you?

    I use all of my devices (Gear S, Note 4, iPhone 5, iPad mini Retina, Dell Venue 8 Pro, Nexus 7, Lumia 520... might forget another dozen LOL) as tools - choose the right tool for specific purpose. Like screwdrivers - you can't use the same one for every screw.

    Phone: S3

    Laptop: Toss up between my PowerBook G4 and ThinkPad T60. I've been using them about 50/50 lately. My MBP is just for videos that I can't play on the other two.

    I don't have a tablet or the desire to get one.

    Moto X 2013
    Nexus 7
    Macbook Air June 2014

    --

    Will likely upgrade the Moto X to a Nexus 6, as my wife uses the tablet pretty extensively and I'd like a larger screen of my own. May actually wind up selling the Air depending on work preferences for a laptop.

    Two smartphones both Androids but I have been considering phablet/tablet just because some e-books are in pdg form. I have ePuberator but converting pdf to epub can get messy. So I keep it in pdf form but the size can be quite small to read. I think having two smartphones can be overkill but I'm considering getting two more. One ranging from 3.5-4 inches and another at 5.5-7 inch range. The smaller one is the cheap throwaway phone that can play videos closer to the 360p resolution which is common on YouTube. Great for toilet breaks or when you go to a social gathering or place where it might NOT always be safe. The other larger one is for e-books and gaming. The middle two, 4.7 & 5 inches would be my main smartphones.

    - Thinkpad T440s
    - iPad 2 - could do with upgrading this. But unsure wh ether or not to continue with iPad. iOS still has several unique tablet apps that I find useful. But I'd also like my tablet to have an active digitiser.
    - Galaxy S4 - Would like something with longer battery life. Considering Xperia Z3 for my next phone.

    Xperia Z1
    Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014
    Mid 2012 non-Retina 15" MBP


    Gonna replace the Z1 with either the Nexus 6 or iPhone 6+. Might sell the Note for the next Xperia Z Tablet if it has front facing speakers and a screen res bump along with the typical improvements.
