    I have had many smartphones, 29 to be exact, but out of the lot, there were a few that I really liked.

    The first smartphone that I really got hooked on was actually the first smartphone I ever bought, the AT&T Tilt. I kept that phone for a year. The longest stint of any smartphone I would own.

    The second was the BlackBerry Bold 9000. The keyboard on that phone was awesome. Back then I was a BlackBerry nut. First time I ever became a member of an online community.

    For about five months I owned a Nexus S. this was the first time I had owned a smartphone and thought that it had met all of my needs. I would eventually move on to the iPhone 4 after almost a half a year with it. It was definitely a great phone.

    Now I have the iPhone 5. Number 29. It has gone the second longest stint out of all of the smartphones I have had. No issues at all and I haven't gotten a real urge to swap it for something else.

    What about you guys? What are some of your favorite smartphones?

    I've only had 3 total and my favorite is my current iPhone 4S. The other two smartphones I've owned are the iPhone 3GS and the iPhone 4, so I've been blissfully limited to iPhone throughout my smartphone experience.

    Six. Every iPhone except the 2G and a Nexus One. But I only had the Nexus for one week. I didn't intend to give up my iPhone; I just wanted to test an Android.

    Nothing will top iPhone 1. That thing was magical.

    It still makes me a little sad that I missed out on that experience. If only I could find my time machine...

    I have owned about a dozen smartphones. About 6 BB and still carrying one that is corporate issued. 2 Palm Treos, a Samsung Behold 1 and 2 and 2 iPhones. The iPhone 4 was probably my favorite because I was using an iPod Touch for about a year and a half and I was beyond ecstatic when I picked up the 4. I couldn't of been happier with the 4 for two years until I upgraded to the 5. I didn't even jailbreak until I picked up the 5 and saw a whole new world. The 4 will always hold a place for my favorite smartphone and even made me sad when I sold it.

    I still look at the 4 as one of the best looking devices. I wish I had owned the white one though.

    Treo 650 was my favorite. You know it still works today! Holds a charge and keeps it all day. The thing is a tank. No case ever. It just works.

    Now on the iPhone 5. Technically the best one. But I miss the treo.

    I still have my 650 as well. I should get a pay as you go SIM card to see if it still works.

    Other than the iPhone, some of my favorites were: Samsung i830, Samsung i700, and the Motorola Q. All back in my Verizon days. Didn't have a data plan in any of them, but loved them anyways...

    Way back I got a Sony Ericsson p900i. One of the most awesome and first smart phone I ever had. In fact, I still had it. Second one will be Nexus one. And now, IP5.

    The keyboard on that phone was awesome. They were thick and a case was not needed. Those phones could survive just about any normal fall.

    This is an old CNET review in the Treo. It's incredible that it wasn't that long ago that we were using devices like this.

    I watched this video of the 680. I wish that I had one just to play around with.
