I need a new phone. Was never really impressed with the iPhone. I want something that doesn't go berserk in the rain. I only use a few apps. To me, a phone is just another tool like a hammer. I don't go orgasmic over brand names. If it works then I'm happy. What do you guys use?

I have had every major android device to come out in the last 6 years. For work, the best one was the Samsung Rugby Pro. I am now using an iPhone 5s. I got tired of phones too big to stick in my pocket. I put a Lifeproof Fre case on it and so far, it is a great solution. iOS May be limited compared to android, but it works and it is reliable. I don't miss the wakelocks and battery drain issues that most android devices suffer from.

I actually miss the red blinking light on my old Blackberry that told me I had new messages. Does any other phone have that? I know, I'm easily satisfied :) .

Using the galaxy rugby LTE/PRO. Happy with it so far. My apprentice has had one for over a year, no case and he carries it in his back pocket. The screen doesn't have a scratch on it.

I would say anything android...the nexus 5 is a pretty decent phone. I like my Galaxy S4 but is has it's faults. I will probably try an HTC next. Used an iphone before this but it was a real PITA to use for work stuff like emails and PDF's.
