    Started with a HTC desire, then over to the Xperia Play. After that went over to the Galaxy S2, then the Xperia Z and now am on a Galaxy Note 2 which is hands down the best phone of the lot of them. Will probably not replace this phone until it falls apart.

    My first was an LG Optimus S it was cool with Media and stuff but with Games it was a whole Different perspective... I thought I had a top notch Phone like other people but I never payed attention to the specs at the time, since I was a noob at this stuff (at the time lol).

    Current phone I just got as a hand-me-down is my first smartphone. It's a samsung galaxy 5
    (droid 2.2, 2mp camera, 240x320 screen, wifi, Bluetooth, 140mb internal storage, 600mhz CPU)
    It's not much compared to anything modern but it's a debatable slight step up from my previous Nokia 302 javaphone.

    HTC evo shift 4g, great phone until you power back on and realize that you only heard sound and no visual and then to realize your phone was broken.:angry:

    I have only ever had the LG Optimus 2x.
    Awesome phone for apps, but Android 4.0+ lags extremely much on it (380 megs of RAM) and the battery gets drained for under 2 hours with light use (some Osu!Droid/Super Hexagon).
    Planning on getting a Note 3, because my Note 10.1 2014 spoiled me with it's big screen/no lag. :P

    I inherited an old Palm Treo 680 back in like 2008 or 09. Wasn't actually a bad device, especially since the iPhone didn't have the kind of foothold it has today, and Android devices weren't really a thing yet; still wasn't as nice as the contemporary Windows Mobile phones, but it played music, had a touchscreen and keyboard, supported SDHC, and even had working SNES and GBC emulators.

    Late 2010 I eventually moved on to a cheap HTC Aria, an Xperia Play in 2012 when the Aria couldn't keep up, and a slightly dysfunctional Samsung Captivate Glide last summer after my Xperia Play vanished.

    I also started with a Nokia Symbian phone, it was the E62:

    Ironically, I owned a NGage QD before that, but never used it as a phone.

    My first smartphone was a iPhone 3G. Then I went through so many phones I can't even remember them all. Now I have a Google/LG Nexus 5 with CarbonKat on it at the moment.
