    Lets see I have owned... Arrive... HD7S... Samsung Focus S... Titan... DVP... Lumia 800... Focus S again... Lumia 900... Titan II.

    I had the Arrive then switched to ATT and got the HD7S traded it 2 weeks later for the Focus S on launch day. Then I bought the Titan a couple of weeks after it came out. I sold the first Focus S because the wife wasn't at all happy when I paid full price for the Titan. I got the DVP because my Boss was pissed about all the call quality issue with the Titan and bought me the DVP. I traded the Titan for the L800 (this is a nice device). I sold the DVP when I found a great deal for a Focus S on Crag's list. I bought the L900 on launch day because I am just that sick. I got my wife to switch to ATT so I got the subsidized $100 deal but after 2 defective L900 I decided I just couldn't take the chance. I swapped my L900 on my 30th day for the Titan 2. I will wait till version 2 comes out before getting another Nokia Windows Phone. At this point about what 3 week in with the T2 I think for my needs this is the best device. I still have a Focus S around its a great device as well.

    This is of course MHO

    Adding to original post - soon I will have a Lumia 900 as well, though we'll see how it actually works. Seller on Ebay sold it as "non working" for $75 shipped - my bet is it suffers from the "half bricked" problem a lot of early Lumia's seem to have, and I'll try to get it switched out with Nokia under the 1 year warranty.

    We'll see - I'll keep everyone updated.

    4 in total. My first was the HD7, returned it on the 14th day when I saw the SAMOLED screen of the Focus and got a DVP with an AMOLED one in December 2010. Went through a few replacements (do they each count as a different device ), then the Radar in Feb 2012 and The Icon Lumia 900 in April, which is by far my favourite. Still have 3 DVP's in the house, 1 with a broken touchscreen.

    3. HTC Arrive, Titan I for about a week then the Nokia Lumia 900. I'm considering the Titan II again for its camera but with Windows 8 around the corner, I'll wait to make a move in the fall.

    HTC Arrive and HTC Titan. Wife has a white 900. The Arrive had a great keyboard and felt good in the hand. If I could take the looks, feel, screen, and LTE speed of the 900 and and the Titan screen size, camera, and attentive phone it would be a great mix.
    Wife, eh? Congrats!

    Can you compare the Focus S and the Lumia 900 for me? I'm really debating whether I should keep my Focus S, which works PERFECTLY for me, but has no LTE and the weird keyboard slowdown thing, or keep the Lumia, which is heavier and bigger and has no way to interop or developer unlock.

    Samsung Focus and Nokia L900. The L900 feel much better and is faster

    The biggest problem I had with the Focus S was the clicking noises when using the headphone jack with a powered system (mainly in my car). This was a deal killer for me.

    Other than that, the Focus S was a great device. Nokia has brought much to the table. The exclusives will eventually work their way to all WP devices though. I like the look and feel better on Nokia as well. It feels like the phone was just carved out instead of assembled.

    Be aware that it took me four 900s before I found one that was problem free. If you only have one upgrade coming this year, I would probably wait for the WP8 devices.

    In my opinion, the two biggest advantages with the 900 are the exclusive apps, and the design. Obviously the support for the Nokia seems better, two updates in just a few months, while the keyboard bug still haunts the Focus. However, if the keyboard bug doesn't bother you that much, if the apps (turn by turn nav, augmented reality app, etc) don't do anything for you, and you normally keep your phone in a case, then I don't think it's much of an upgrade. I think the focus s is a fantastic phone. I was very happy with it, and if I wasn't such a tech geek I wouldn't have switched.

    So, I would basically ask myself a few questions:

    1. Do I want a free turn by turn nav app? That is the biggie to me, the other nokia apps can be replicated in the marketplace quite nicely.

    2. Do I keep my phone in a case usually? If the answer is yes, then that negates alot of the physical design benefits of the 900.

    3. Does the keyboard bug bother me? If so, it's not present in the 900. There are other bugs, but not this one.

    4. How often am I on cellular data vs. wifi, and is LTE available in my area? If you are on wifi alot, then LTE isn't that much different. It can be faster in some cases, but not much.

    The 900 is a nicer device than the Focus S, no doubt, but it's not a huge step up. The camera is about the same, same processor, same ram, similar screens, etc. The choice is yours, but if your upgrade is very valuable to you, or you want to save the $500 for a possible wp8 device in a few months, I'd say wait.

    Just a Focus S here. Returned it before 30 day trial period expired and went with iOS (big mistake). Mainly because of apps. Have not been impressed with iOS and when my wife informed me she wanted to go back to WP7, I have to admit, I felt a little relieved. Waiting for WP8 though. Also been hitting this forum. Wish this forum was more lovely though... Been bored at work lately and there hasn't been much action here ~:(

    Just curious -

    Has anyone owned a few different WP7 devices (other than Daniel Rubino, who probably owns every WP7 device ever made) ?

    I've owned a Focus and currently own a Focus S and have had a few weeks with a Focus Flash.

    People say the core experience of Windows Phone is the same across all devices, and that is true to a degree, but just like anything in life - there's higher quality devices and you tend to get what you pay for.

    If you've stuck with one brand, like I have, is there any other brand you want to try? Personally I'd like to use a Dell Venue Pro, a Lumia 900, and an HTC Titan 2 for a while just to compare.
    Samsung Focus, HD7s, Titan and L900

    Started off just before Christmas with an Omnia 7. Fell in love with the software (after Android) and liked the hardware also, however the phone appears to have an overheating problem so I switched to the HTC Titan. Lovely screen, excellent camera and of course WP7.

    My Omnia is currently away for repair and will hopefully be passed onto my sister when she gets back so she can enjoy WP7 too.

    2 Optimus.

    Will get a third windows phone if Apollo either of this things happens.

    1-Apollo is on part feature wise with Android, and I mean everything.
    2-Either a Samsung Note like phone with Galaxy S 3 specs.
    3-Lumia with pure view and top specs in everything.

    I'm want a high end Windows Phone and I better get it before the year ends.

    Quantum since Mango released. Will still have until a new model with landscape slider is released on ATT. Maybe. I am very pleased with the Quantum and would take much consideration before upgrading. This bad-boy is bug-free the best I can tell, which can't be said about all WP's.

    So Winterfang, you are going to insist on a phone that: lags, freezes occasionally, drains battery like an 8" sewer and offers your personal info up to anyone who wants it. No thank you. (Sorry, couldn't help myself.)

    Let's see... I've had the HD7, Surround, Arrive, Trophy, Lumia 900, Titan, Titan 2. I think that's all of them.

    I liked the kickstand on the HD7, the keyboard on the Arrive, the feel in hand of the Trophy, the premium feel of the Lumia (though it was too large for me), and the curved glass of the Titan 2.

    I'm a sick, sick person. Lol. I honestly would love the Lumia 800 but I'm not willing to pay the price MS wants for the bundle and I don't like not having a warranty and full support if I order overseas. I like the way the curved glass seems seamless on the 800 as opposed to the flat panel on the 900.

    Of course, I hope the best is yet to come.

    My three:



    I was supposed to sell the DVP but for some reason it's still sitting in a drawer. The Titan I was planning to sell too, but the Smoked By WP challenge has made it's resale value drop off a cliff. Plus, the HTC Connection Setup app works for the Titan, but not the Titan II.
