    Mine that I remember loving a lot at the time for the price was the Huwaei Ascend, it was an awesome phone for super cheap with decent specs at the time. What was your all time favorite android phone you had?

    OG Moto Droid.
    That thing was a tank, it had a slide out keyboard and it was my first smartphone. Still works too, albeit a little on the slow side. I use it as a radio for my parakeets these days.

    I'm typing this post from my old HTC One SV, an entry level phone that I bought in 2012, I later bought another HTC the M8 but I lost it during a trip. This year I bought a LG G4 Stylus but my wife's phone was broken so I gave her the LG. The HTC One SV came back to life with a new battery and I rooted it in order to expand the storage using Link2SD app.

    So far the One SV didn't stop to impress me, I dropped it several times, took it apart to fix the power button, used it as wifi hotspot... Despite its age and the small amount of RAM (1gb) it runs fairly smooth with latest versions of today's popular apps.

    HTC One M8 but if it was a little bit longer. All the features an A/V guy like me would want.

    I had a T-Mobile Galaxy SII (Hercules). Using the Roman Numerals is correct, BTW. It was given to me by a friend when I first got into Android. I have a VZW S4 with a locked bootloader. Hercules, which I did not know at the time, is one of the most widely developed Android devices ever. I cut my teeth with it. Ran scores of different ROM's. It is currently running CM13 (Virtually Partitioned) and I have passed it on to my Son. I thoroughly fell in love with Android as a direct result of this device. It changed my life. So, yeah, I would say that it is my favorite.

    Yeah the SII was killer. Looked exactly like a smartphone should. Heck, it even looked good in white. I sold mine though.

    While I have fond memories of the OG Droid (2009), I think my favorite phone so far has been the Note 4 Developer Edition. She's now my backup reserve phone, but I'll be selling her as soon as I pick up the Note 7 Friday :D

    In many respects the HTC One S - a thing of beauty IMO, and a good size for me personally. I'd have bought one except for the inadequate (and non-expandable) storage, a problem that has ruled out a lot of phones for me (Nexus models in particular seem to either be too large or to have too little storage, so every year I get annoyed by Google's choices).

    A Sammy guy here, I really like the Note 4....

    I started with the Galaxy S, and then the S5, and then the Note 4....
    so far, have not rooted any of them.

    My daughter is using the HTC One M9, a present from me to her.
    20/20 hindsight says that was a horrible choice, for her, and for me.

    the "only reason" I bought it was because it has twin speakers and they are very good.
    Hindsight says that is a very stupid reason to buy anything.
