I think ALL these devices Craig can work for you, but since I could only pick ONE, my vote goest to the iPhone 5. I like its smaller size and battery life. It now also exceeds Android in applications available.

I gave up my 4th Blackberry a couple of months ago.

I now have Android.  I HATE IT! 

No it's not a learning curve - it's a dumbing curve!    Battery life?  That's an oxymoron... the thing goes dead if you blink at it!

I'm going to the phone company tomorrow to see the new Blackberry.    :)

I've got an iphone and love it but would appreciate a slightly bigger screen for these old eyes of mine.

I have an iPhone and I love it. I do use a lot of power. I normally have to recharge mid day. I use many apps everyday. My phone works for me and my business.

My Sprint EVO died the other day and the tech guys at the store talked me in a Samsung Galaxy SIII.  In another couple of weeks I might even be able to make and receive calls!  I'm slower...

Seems like a great phone.

It was interesting the 65% were Apple Iphone users. I am on my 4th IPhone, phones only last about 18-24 month for me

Jean - I was very happy the day I turned in my blechberry. I so enjoy the full screen experience even if typing is a little harder. BB10... well, we will see

Hannah - iphone 5 is larger screen, you should test drive an S3 or Note 2 if you want the larger screen experience.

Kathy - I think they had a good idea but too late. The big catching point for BB will be the lack of apps that you can get in android and ios.

Lyn - I'm with you on android. Interesting to see this crowd of viewers (mostly real estate) are iphone centric.

Gary - I agree that all the smartphone choices are hard to really go wrong. Android is making great strides in the 'don't have as many apps as apple war'. Much better these days than it was previously.

Beth - me too! :)

Kathy - love to hear that report, thanks for sharing

Fred - battery life can be a challenge - I keep a second charged battery for swapping just in case I can't make it through a day. That's something you can do with android devices. Maybe you should check out the Maxx as we are getting some postive feedback in that regard.

Leah - you might have to switch to android if you like the bigger screens - come on over ;)

Sussie - isn't it great having all these tools in our 'pocket computers'

Janis - glad to hear that report! you'll have to share some video samples from the phone for us to see how that will work for class!

Melissa - ah yes, you real estate peeps prefer the iPhone I can see! 65% ios to 25% android on the results. I was wondering but hunch confirmed. I plan to write posts for both ios and android coming soon - this will help me to see how weighted my audience is :)

Jay - welcome to jelly bean - didn't we have that discussion and now you have all those great new features that you didn't know you were missing! If you have any questions - send me a message!

Frank - yes results were interesting - iPhones are a worthy choice

I have an android: G=Samsung Galaxy III.  I am not fond of this phone.  There have been many quirky issues with the operating system.  I am a previous Blackberry user and may consider the new Blackberry or an iPhone. I do  love the size of the screen on the Samsung.

ZTE Origin Android phone. ZTE is a major cell phone manufacturer in China.

I'm a Google/Android guy despite having great respect and appreciation for what Apple devices do. I've just never had a personal reason for switching to Apple.

All of my Google Apps for business are integrated along with other essential apps I cannot live without. My storage demands are growing, however. Time for an upgrade soon.

I was the Blackberry holdout for the longest time specifically due to the keyboard. I still have a difficult time typing on the iPhone after almost two years!

I use iPhone now, but used to use Android which I liked it too. It seems most of the Apps that I need (specially in Real Estate industry) are first made for iPhone and later become available for other devices.
