Save for a few switches here and there to test the particular features of a device, I've been carrying the Apple iPhone 4S since it launched in October.  Three months is an eternity in cell phone nerd time, and as you'd probably expect, I've been itching to mix it up and work with a different device.  That's where you come in.

Ever wanted to play a role in what device I carry?  Thought to yourself "man, Aaron should rock the (insert phone name here)"?  Are you a fanboy that wants to spread your love of iDroid Phone to the world?  This is your opportunity!  Cast your vote in the poll below, and let me know what you chose (and why) in the comments section!  Voting closes at 8:00 PM Eastern on Friday, February 3rd.  

(Right now, I'm using AT&T as my primary account, hence the AT&T choices in the poll.)

Once we have a winner, I'll be using that smartphone as my primary smartphone for 30 days, and will be doing a video journal of my time with it.  You'll get an in-depth look at what I love, what I think needs improvement, and everything in between.  It's a busy time of the year, with Mobile World Congress right around the corner, so this device will be traveling around the world with me.  Make it count!


Don't forget to VOTE! Each week, PhoneDog Fans vote for their #1 smartphone in the Official Smartphone Rankings. Vote now and contribute to the industry's most relevant weekly ranking charts

Stephen Garite darn i was about to say jitterbug but someone already said it lol
Mickey Knezevic Looks like Samsung Note is winning. Might as well get Motorola DynaTAC 8000X. Very comparable in size :-)
Roniel Madan iphone 4 or any mid range samsung with android. not that expensive or high end something just enough to keep him connected with the world wit ha failry good battery backup, depends if Aaron is on business trip or vacation, if on vacation he would have have his own cam and would carry it everywhere so doesnt need a high end cam mobile, and if on business trip he wont go far off places that need spl camera lnes, for both scenarios iphone 4 will be good, or a samsung glaaxy series with dual cam in case he wants to do video call, no HTC becoz ringtones and battery backup is not that great and they are on a little expensive side
Craig Campbell Galaxy Note - I am in love with the idea of it (and briefly played with one in Europe) - but would love to know how it actually feels practically as an everyday phone.

Greg Trecartin Galaxy Note. Need the extended Road test from those in the know.
Darren N Anderson Been t'inkin' da same t'ing for myself still. 4ever Team Android, but considering a 30 Day trial on BlackBerry. Still, jump on da new Razr, if its out, or an iPhone 4 and tell us whether Android's still on TOP.

Jeremy Hass The Motorola 1000
Ryan DeClue The original EVO 4G, but rooted and rom'ed. See how it stacks up against the newer stuff in day to day
Keenan Ochoa F#ck a crapple iphone! That's for trendy wannabe teen girls. A female phone
Carlos Quinones Go with the iPhone 4s (assuming your not sick of it). It's got hspa+ on AT&T. I love the galaxy note and some other androids. But they're getting too damn big. The iPhone is the only current dual core phone that's a reasonable size (and the g2x as well, but unfortunately that's t-mobile only). I want to see some LTE dual core phones in the 3.8-4 inch range. Otherwise, iPhone will tide you over in the mean time. I love the size of newer androids for media. But pocketing them, they just feel overly big and they seem to be getting bigger, as if bigger is better. And your getting smaller Aaron. So perhaps its better to have a phone that reflects your size. That came off sounding kinda weird there lol. I think any of these newer phones will due to be honest. I think over all, it should be between the iPhone 4s and one of the newer Samsung androids. Samsung is the only company that seems to get rid of the android lag.
