    Iphone 6s currently, after having 5s before. Although the reliability of the 5s was a breaktrough in reliability, after having an HTC Android before.
    The 6s just doesn't do it, having at least 2 glitches per week (camera freezing, overheating, wifi issues etc.), so I'm switching back to Android after on my contract renewal. It is remarkable how much better the 5s was in every aspect over 6s, excluding screen size

    Still using my S4 mini with an Otter case. Problem for me is the size. I can't see myself with a 5'' phone in my pocket. I'm eyeballing a Sony Z5 compact but I'll wait since an S7 mini is rumored... Seems like I'm a rare fan of small phones and there is not a lot of choices under 5''.

    Z5 compact has overheating issues. Also, we ordered 6 of them for our company, two were already back on warranty due to issues during phonecalls.

    Thanks for pointing this out. A quick search showed me you are right about the overheating issue. I guess I'll end up with a 5''. Maybe not, I've heard that Sony will soon launch a new 4,6'' phone to replace the Z5 compact. Hope they solved the problems.

    I really prefer Android, that's the problem... My personal and professional life is all set up around Google Agenda, Keep, Contacts and so on.

    Currently iPhone 6. I switch back to android periodically, but my last two phones have been iPhones and I couldn't be happier. Never had any serious or lasting issues, but when my sister's or girlfriend's iPhones have had issues, I took them to the Apple Store and they got new ones for free after a quick genius bar appointment if it couldn't be repaired (once was actually something that was our fault, but they gave her a new phone anyway). They make it easy to get issues dealt with in person and will actually try their best to help you out. Best of all, pretty much any company that makes cases and accessories makes iPhone compatible sizes/versions.

    My private phone is an iPhone 6 in a cheap bumbercase.
    My work phone is an iPhone 6 in an Otterbox Defender case.

    I've used Android-phones only briefly over the years and I liked them also, but at the moment, it's iPhone-bonanza here.

    Samsung Note 4. have had it for about a year and a half and still get a full day out of 1 charge (less at work due to poor network coverage and always searching for a signal)

    I have a Motorola Moto G. It's a little slower than my Samsung S4 Mini was far as web browsing, but otherwise it does very well what a phone is supposed to do...make phone calls and text messages. 95% of my phones use is calls and texts, 4% is web browsing and the last 1% is stuff like conversion calculators, ballistics computer app and my alarm clock.

    Samsung S4 still. Still working like a charm and afraid of that S7 battery issue until they get it sorted.

    iPhone 5s here - 16gb is quite limiting, especially when I load it with the detailed Ordnance Survey maps we have here in the UK.

    Did you take it back to Apple? Their CS is typically great for stuff like that. Since it's a 6s it's still in warranty. I've deployed a dozen or so in my company and so far haven't had any issues so what you're experiencing definitely shouldn't be expected.

    Never really tought of that, since all the problems are software related. Two times I got the "overheated" note, it was standing in the sun. And in Croatia in the summer, that 50 degrees. Celsius. I really cannot go to CS with an intermittent problem, as they would be looking at me with "is this guy serious" look.

    I was rocking the Sony Xperia Z until 2 weeks ago. It served me really well. Now I got the Samsung Galaxy S7. It is so great!
