    No offense to apple or anything, but I actually have an android right now :(

    Sony Xperia Ion, great phone, I love it, and I also love iPhones :)

    Hope to soon get an iPhone to accompany it though. :apple::apple::apple:

    I think this would better fit the Alternatives section. Also, why would you need two phones?!

    Some of us have two phones for work and personal. Others simply like to have a backup device or to try out new devices....to each his/her own.

    Currently rocking an iPhone 5 for work and Nexus 4 as my personal device - always been an Apple guy and recently decided to use an Android....as long as I could keep my iPhone close by.

    So far I like the N4 - however I'll still be upgrading to an iPhone when the time comes.

    Hi, sorry, I put this in the wrong section unknowingly.

    I always have a spare phone in case I lose one, or don't like it. I also use the extra one to tinker with or whatever.

    iPhone 5
    Nexus 4
    Note 2

    I seem to always fall back to an iPhone, but just got the note 2 today so will give it the full 14 days before making my decision. Since I really am using a phone as a pocket PC the note may win out

    Using the Nexus 4 as my main phone right now and absolutely love it. I'll be keeping this thing as long as I can. It feels great in the hand and has a great screen and decent specs to boot. As long as this thing gets updates I'll be using it and maybe even after.

    That is the best thing about the nexus line...although the carriers/Samsung are getting better at updating their flagships.

    Yeah, I'm impressed with what Samsung has been doing.

    I'm using an HTC 8X, but I still have my Motorola droid and HTC trophy that I used prior to this phone.

    That's easy to answer, I have three activated currently.

    One is business, one is personal, and one is just to try something different.

    Favorite #1: Nexus 4, #2: Galaxy Note II, #3: iPhone 5

    Galaxy S3, iPhone 5, and Lumia 920 here.
    My daily driver is the S3. I just can't break my addiction to it and this just ensures I'll be getting the S4 later this year.

    The iPhone 5 is also great. Especially now that it's jailbroken. But there are still limitations that push me back to the S3, although I do like the iPhone.

    The jury is still out on the 920. I like the live tiles, but the overall UI once you get into an app just doesn't appeal to me that much. I don't like the section titles and how they're all lowercase and run off the page. Using apps like Board Express, which follows the same UI, makes it hard to read forums.

    iPhone 4 now, gets sold one I leave Japan in a few weeks.
    Galaxy S3 waiting for me at home.
    Blackberry Bold, company phone.

    I used to use my company phone for personal stuff too, but they have restricted it so much and monitor things so much I decided it wasn't worth the risk for the small monthly cost of my own device. So now I have two during the week and the company phone sits unused nights and weekends.

    Have a Note 2 as the main phone and an iPhone 5 for backup. With the Note 2's awesome battery life, there hasn't been a need to use a backup phone! I tried switching back to the iPhone 5 for the shiggles but wasn't able to tolerate the lack of a notification light, back button, and Swiftkey Flow! I also got spoiled by the larger screen too.

    I tried the Note 2, but that back button was a pain. I kept pressing it accidentally. Don't get me wrong, it's a great phone, I guess I'm just used to the ergonomics of the iPhone.

    Used an iPhone for years and switched to a Note II. It has everything I wished an iPhone would have each year they released the new model.
