Which type of smartphone do you guys use: iPhone, Android, Windows Phone, etc.?

I have all three but mostly use my iPhone 6 and HTC Amaze and iPod touch for music playback.

I forgot to mention that I also use a broken screen HTC MyTouch 4G as a music player to load combined playlists from my Amazon mp3 and iTunes.

I have a Windows Phone, and while I know I am in the minority, I love it. I have never owned an iPhone. I have previously used an Android phone. I don't think I'd ever go with an iPhone - I don't like the maniacal control Apple exerts over its consumers, always insisting it knows better than them what they want. At any rate, I don't use my phone for listening to music, except when I don't have my iPod with me (yes, the iPod is exceptional for music listening). I don't want to run down the battery in case I need to make phone calls.

Nice... do you use a Nokia or HTC or Samsung Windows Phone. I have two cheap-o Nokia Windows Phone and really like my Lumia 635 build. Unfortunately the music app messes up the iTunes purchases unlike Android.

iPhone. I wouldn't change, to be honest. I've been Apple since about seven years and see no reason to look at other phones. I had a Macbook laptop and hope to own an iPad some day...

I used to think like that, and use separate phones and music players, but my new new LG phone seems to have a huge battery life and playing music doesn't seem to drain much battery time unless I use the Bluetooth. I can also read books on it so it is replacing my tablet when I travel

Nokia Lumia 928. Verizon finally got their act together and released the Windows Phone 8.1 update - they were the last provider to offer it. I love it with the update. The screen size is great, and one of the best features of this particular model is the camera - takes better quality pictures than my actual digital camera, especially in low light settings. Although I am interested in trying out the HTC M8 Windows Phone on Verizon. Supposed to be really good. The app store on Windows Phone sucks - no denying that. But I still really like the OS on Windows Phone - and I am not normally much of a Microsoft cheerleader.

iPhone

Nokias were once upon a time ahead of the rest in cameras. Even the video part recorded good sound such as in concerts. May still be the case.
My wife has an iPhone 5S (I think that is the model). She always defers to my phone for picture taking. That was actually one of the big selling points of the Lumia 928. I think Nokia is actually finally gone - seems like I read they are disappearing. I think they have been swallowed up by Microsoft. The second cell phone I ever owned was a Nokia - nice little phone. I really liked it.

Yeah I really like the Nokia (now Microsoft) designs. Of course I'm a techie geek. I have the 128 gb black iPhone 6 for T-Mobile and I got it because it's 128 gb which means huge collections of classical and pop and jazz and rap music. However, I kinda am pining for the Nexus 6 (but no 128 gb option) or HTC One M8 which is the best phone design ever methinks.

iPhone 6 is the easiest to load and off-load music however :). I love iTunes just for that purpose.

I have an iPhone 5 courtesy of work. I've never bought a smartphone before as I get them from my employer (first Blackberrys, then iPhones). One consequence is I don't know much about what's out there, or about cell phone plans, which I've never bought.

Actually, the Windows Phone app on my MacBook Pro makes it very easy to download music onto my phone. I connect it, open then app, click on the music tab, and then just click on which music I want downloaded. The app connects with iTunes to determine what music is available. It is about as easy as syncing my iPod with iTunes, except that I don't load as much music on my phone, so I have to go through and be more selective.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Had it two years now and very happy with it and will upgrade soon to another similar Galaxy.

I use it mainly for messaging, facebook and the screen is big enough to read so wouldn't bother with a tablet.

I have a separate mp3 player for music.
