    Best: Nokia Lumia 925 - Very underrated and I only had it for 2 weeks so far but I love how it feels and it is smooth. Doesn't crash a lot. Camera is very good. Not great but very good like iPhone good. I am new to windows phone but the L925 alone makes me feel that I don't wanna consider going back to android. Enjoy this phone a lot more than the previous Samsung Galaxy S4.

    Worst: Pantech Burst - horrible battery life. Horrible lags. Crashes a lot. Camera sucks too. I hate how I have to root the phone if I want to screenshot and there is nothing to like about this phone. It flat out sucks.

    What's your best/worst smartphones that you owned?

    Best: Nokia Lumia 920 that I currently use. It has all the apps and features that I need, is stable on 8.1 Preview, and it has a great camera.

    Worst: Nokia E71. I had two of them. They both were defective, and the battery died after only 4 hours of light use (checking emails and sending/receiving a few SMS). I ended up getting AT&T to give me a BlackBerry Bold 9000 for the same price instead of the Nokia E71, even though the BB retail price was more expensive, since the E71 was so bad.

    Lumia 620 is my best and worst phone.
    Best because it's easy to use(not big), good screen, design etc

    Worst because of terrible battery life. That sucks.

    Before this I owned Nokia 6633 then 5800 Xpress Music. All those were ok. Not good nor bad.

    I'd say the best and worst would be my old Palm Pre 2. (OK, I hold my 920 as being the best-best, but just for the sake of duality.)

    The design was great, that curve, the mirror was a great touch, it was compact, beautiful.
    webOS had so much potential, if things hadn't gone south, there's a significant chance I wouldn't be here. The notifications, multitasking, and how many things just felt well designed and thought out made it to be my favorite OS. Customization via Preware was a boon too. The degree of control under the hood was great as well. Messing with Govnah was fun, although risking overheating was potentially something to worry about, especially when webOS stalled when I rushed to turn down the heat. But the control was well worth it.
    Wireless charging was great, touches like Exhibition, the magnets of the touchstone, they made a great experience.
    the light bar in the gesture area is something I will miss.
    it was just so many smaller touches that added up to something I remember fondly.

    But then the bad things.
    webOS was often not-responsive (beats out every other device I used), it needed custom patches for best performance. Even then, it was meh. Performance was inconsistent, the app selection made Windows Phone seem like the promised land. (exaggerated, kinda) The Sims 3 ran at a bad framerate too according to my sister.
    It had some bugs, and some other stuff which weren't the best.

    No other smartphone rivaled the love-hate relationship I had with that phone.

    I swapped it for a Treo Pro, since I hadn't seriously used Windows Mobile before.

    Best: Lumia 520
    Worst: Anything LG

    I had a few LG phones and they were all horrible.

    The only thing bad about my Lumia is the garbage battery. Me and my friends all have 520 and the battery lasts maybe 10 hours.

    Best phone: Unlocked yellow Lumia 1020
    Worst: Mytouch 4g I would have to say was my worst phone ever. A more recent worst phone would have to be..hmm probably my Lumia 900 not for any other reason then the sheer amount of bad luck with defective models.

    Best would be my current 822 with an HTC Evo and a Blackberry Tour being close. My worst was a Droid Pro mostly because it was just a crap phone and Verizon abandoned it.

    Hard to pin down best, but worst by far would be the Droid Incredibles/DInc2's we got for a period in our work plan. I honestly think every single one (of 20 or so) we got failed prematurely; battery, screen, case integrity, you name it. Just lousy phones from the depths of HTC's darkest period.

    Any windows phone because Android and iPhone usually the hardware and software age over time but WP seems to stay the same if not get better over long periods of time (my opinion)

    Best: Nokia Lumia 920, Nokia T220 (pretty sure that was the model) and Sony cybershot series phone I had.
    Worst: Sony flip phone (had two each both stopped working with light use after 3-4 months. And even though it got me into WP as a device the Samsung focus was just a brittle phone. Performed well but went through three (the Las two being a Samsung focus s)

    Best (my current) Nokia Lumia 520,a budget friendly but powerful phone!
    The worst for me was the Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus S7500
    it had a good camera and even a flash but it was really laggy and wish it had a better (and bigger) display,after a month using this same,i raged the heck out of it,broke it and got the 520 :D

    Best I would have to say the Blackberry 9000 (for its time)

    Worst has to be the HTC 8X... Looked so nice all crisp blue. Days later got dingy/stained from clothing dye, coating on the screen easily scratch pron due to being rounded and raised from the body, some reason it ate up storage more than other wp8 devices (hate is to lose of a word for that device and company)

    I don't have a best phone. All the models ive used have been really good and reliable. I'm still amazed at the HTC G1, which was quirky to use but now a legend because of the OS.

    Worst: Samsung SGH-D900. The battery on this thing was atrocious. Like 6-7hours bad per charge. That's the only bad thing about the phone as it was thin, light and that 3.2MP camera was very, very good. Plus Samsung made the coolest slider phones back in those days.

    Favorite: Nokia E-63. I'd charge that phone TWICE a week. Seriously. I got a red one and it was so fly...a real smatphone that wasn't a gas guzzler in the battery dept - even though I used the WiFi and WAP browser a ton.
