The PhoneArena 2014 census: What brand phone are you using right now?

Ladies and gentlemen, we're almost there: It's time to say goodbye to 2014 and welcome the new year, which, hopefully, will be even better and bring even more exciting devices to the table.

In sight of this year's impending conclusion, we thought it's about time we went ahead and asked you: What brand phone do you have on your desk or in your pocket right now? Is it a Samsung? An Apple? Perhaps a Motorola or LG? HTC, anybody? What about good ol' Nokia? Do we have Sony fans in the house? Anybody still hanging onto BlackBerry? Any outliers that went for phones from lesser-known (in the West, at least) Chinese companies like Xiaomi, Huawei, ZTE, OnePlus?

Let's get this count started!

* Arranged alphabetically for your convenience. If your phone's brand is NOT on the list, choose OTHER at the bottom and let us know in the comment box below.

Don't understand why has PA even considered phones like Jolla, meizu, amazon. Hardly they sell.

Agree. It's really weird seeing Jolla & Amazon in pool like this.

Apple rules?! Mmm, not quite. Apple finally decided to issue bigger screens only recently,way after the others,namely Samsung and HTC. Also IOS isn`t customisable like Android,and you tend to pay for certain options like songs via ITunes to name one. Having said that design wise Apple are better,more classy there,although bit heavier than the plastic ones obviously. However,when you compare specs wise,say the recent flagships,Apple Iphone 6+ vs Samsung Note 4,the latter wins in the following fields: resolution - bigger sharper display,camera (8mp vs 16mp) and bigger replaceable battery. So I wouldn`t rush to conclude that Apple rules,but I would rather say Apple and Samsung are leading the pack with a new strong player Lenovo in third place. Samsung are superior in picture sharpness also in tvs, and other tend to copy. Apple have the Macs pcs which are fine machines. Its finally a matter of taste for IOS or Android.

It's Amazing to see that in PA there were more people (twice as many) using OnePlus One (one model only) compared to BlackBerry (Passport, Clasic, Z10, Z3, Z30, etc - various BB junk)

Did John Chen pay you for your escort services? It appears he may have welched based on your disdain for BlackBerry.

I'm suprised so many OnePlus Ones even exist.

"Me too. PA is OnePlus One magnet." I would have added one more vote to the OnePlus party but I never seem to be able to vote. It only ever displays the results to me...

This is probably because the type of people who know about OnePlus One are also the type of people who frequent these types of sites.

Obviously it is due to the fact that people who know good products are avid readers of phone/tech sites. -OnePlus owner

You really SWEAT BlackBerry! Did they turn you down for a job? Did John Chen spurn your advances towards him? Were you touched by a BlackBerry when you were a child? One of those reasons have got to be it, sainthelena. Why else would you SWEAT BlackBerry so much? Get off BlackBerry, already.

You again? Do you not realize that I have been going at it with this troll since HE joined PA because HE attacked me on a BlackBerry article first? If you don't know the history between he and I, you should just mind your own business. Someone else also responded to his asinine comment, I didn't see you saying anything to them, which leads me to think you have a PERSONAL problem with me. If you do, I don't care. I will respond to a troll however I like, when I like.

anxiety, hmm... you can do whatever you want. You are not going to win an award anyway. Same for sainthelena and his jockery

Agree. Meanestgenius is BB PR that can't accept when someone said something bad about bb.

You just can't stop trolling can you? I wish PA would hurry up and ban you already.

I don't accept you're trolling. I never will. That's something YOU'RE just going to have to accept. And in case you missed it, with you not being able to read and all, Ashoaib dissed you hard.
