    Captivate (first smartphone)

    Atrix (second smartphone, first dual core) That phone was so damn fast it wasn't even funny. Took it back though as I got tired of the bad button placement and motoblur.

    Nexus 1 Is by far my favorite. Rooted, unlocked bootloader, ROMs... that phone did it all. Had to sell it so i could buy my MBP though...

    No phone even comes close to that for me, could still easily use that phone now if I had it, though sadly some idiot I know lost it. :( Had everything I needed it to have though, 3G, great music player, great camera etc.

    My HTC HD2 (current phone) is easily the best phone I've owned yet. The versatility of a phone that was released in 2009 and can still compete with most phones out on the market today doesn't cease to amaze me. Not to mention the fact that it can run pretty much every major mobile OS (save for IOS) gave me a chance to change up my phone at a whim. Although I will be upgrading to an iPhone 5 upon release, I will still be keeping this old phone around to continue tinkering around with until support for it stops.

    I'm with you buddy, I had 3 of them (firmware issues) and they were the best phones I've ever owned. The camera still beats my 3GS by a long, long margin.

    We should also go by the worse phone we've had, not judging by price but by functionality and practicality. Sony Xperia...smh:rolleyes:

    I hope you work in the mobile phone industry. Otherwise, this is madness.

    My favorite phone was my first cell phone; a Moto Razr v3. Due to firmware issues I was forced to 'upgrade' to an LG Keybo which sucked ass. Had that for about a year and some when I dropped that and it kept rebooting (I take responsibility for that) and then I got my first iPhone which was a 3Gs. Never looked back.

    Loved the StarTac. When those were new those were the best phones by far.

    I am showing my age, but the first phone I had was a Motorola MicroTac II that was a hand me down from my dad when I went away for college. That thing was a beast.

    What a total joke. How could you go and rank 14 phones and not include one android phone? Heck, Android has better customization than a jailbroken iPhone. How do you rank a Pixi Plus and not an android phone. These lists are biased and bull.

    Seeing that I had the EnV 2 on VZW before going to ATT for the 3GS, I would have to say either my 3GS or my iPhone 4.
