As I quietly put my OnePlus One to sleep for the night, I couldn't help but think of all the great smartphones I have had over the years. Starting with the Motorola Q, I've had the following:
Motorola Q
iPhone 3G
HTC Hero
Samsung Galaxy SII
Samsung Galaxy S4
Google Nexus 5
OnePlus One

What's your lineage?

    The Palm Pre was still my favorite phone of all the ones I've had. I was sad when Palm OS didn't take off as it was better in many ways to Android at the time. I still do have my HP touchpad rocking WebOS though.

    Got it in one. It's too bad nobody is interested in my business anymore.

  • I still my my BB Curve's keyboard :(

    Such a fantastic device - some sort of blended android/palm keyboard hybrid would be the bee's knees.

    I had the cloud touch for the longest time and went back to it after I got annoyed with the curve...and after the N4 got stolen...It still works years later despite a cracked screen... and being eons behind current tech.

    There's talk of Google releasing its own phone OS, but I think that's just Internet rumor.

    Forgot to mention my Motorola Q, which I had before I switched to the iPhone.

    Oh dear.

    HTC used to make such great phones... -sigh-

    I feel like I must have had a phone between the DZ and the GNex, but I'll be darned if I can remember it. Given my lineage, I find it unlikely I stuck with the DZ for over a year, but maybe so.

    So far, the X is far and away the best of these phones in all aspects. I'll probably move up to the new X soon.

    Currently deciding between messing with my Note 2's ROM some more or getting a Note 4. Wish there were more stylusphone options.

  • ThraxThrax Professional Shill, Watch Slut, Mumble Hivemind Drone Austin, TX

    Any phone will work with a stylus.

  • AlexDeGruvenAlexDeGruven Wut? Meechigan

    Not note-style (wacom digitizer)

    Including the S-pen? I thought there was special hardware mojo involved with making that work. All the styluses I've seen that are universally compatible are the big eraser tipped looking things that seem like they would offer no precision benefit over just using your finger.

  • AlexDeGruvenAlexDeGruven Wut? Meechigan

    See my response.

    The note-style stylus requires the wacom add-on to the digitizer. But any capacitive stylus will work on any phone these days.

  • ThraxThrax Professional Shill, Watch Slut, Mumble Hivemind Drone Austin, TX

    @AlexDeGruven‌ is correct. The digitizer layer in the Note series is pressure sensitive. But I'm suspicious that people make use of that pressure sensitivity as the use cases are oddly specific for a phone. In the event my supposition is correct, then any ol' capacitive stylus will do.

    Nokia 7600 (I count it dammit)
    ZTE Blade
    Samsung Galaxy Note
    Debating the pricey Note 3 or a cheap and cheerful 5" Moto G for my next device (my Note is not so slowly dying).

    The Note's s-pen uses electo-magnetic resonance witchcraft so it really doesn't compare with a generic capacitive stylus (doesn't have to touch the screen to interact with the device, has a button which functions as an alt key, etc).
