    I know most of us only carry one device either because we choose to or because we want to, but what if you didn't? If you had to pick a phone for every major occasion, what would you choose and why? Here are my picks.

    Beater: Lumia 620
    I think this WP8 newbie would be great as a beater phone. It's inexpensive for the hardware, runs smooth, and looks like it could take a beating. If you're wondering what I mean by beater, I'm taking about devices that exist simply to take a beating. For example hiking, exercising, going to the beach, drunk nights, kids (which are a direct result of drunk nights. ) (Runner ups: HTC 8S, HTC One V)

    Business: Samsung Ativ S
    My main tools of the trade are Word and Excel. Sure, other platforms have ways to duplicate their functionality but I don't need to settle for substitutes. Furthermore, the Ativ S has a more professional look to it than the Lumia or 8X line. (Runner ups: iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy Note II)

    Pleasure: Lumia 920
    Gotta stick with my 920. Not only is it a heads turner but everyone wants to use it for pictures once they realize how superb the camera is. Plus, people love seeing their faces pinned to my home screen. It makes them feel special, lol. (Runner ups: HTC 8X, HTC One X, iPhone 4S)

    And the beauty of only using WP is that I can easily sync all my content between the three devices.

    You forgot one:

    Target Practice: iPhone 5
    A nice side benefit is to hear Siri groaning while the native maps dispatch an ambulance to its location - which it would state as the outer moons of Saturn.

    This thread reminds me of my BB days back around 2005. Every Friday afternoon I would take my SIM out of my red 8310 Curve and put it in my BB Pearl (8100 I think) then swap back on Monday morning.
