I started on Android with the T-Mobile G1 here in the UK it was the first Android phone to be released back when people were unaware of what Android even was and now look at it lol, Anyway I kind of got fed up of those early droids as you can see from the list so I briefly tried a iPhone but after 2 weeks I was bored and sold it to jump straight in another OS in its infancy Windows Phone and have stuck with it for 5 years now.

To be honest now might not have been the best time to jump ship again what with windows 10 around the corner but I kind of thought I would sit this one out and see what happens this could be the make or break for Microsoft in the smartphone market.

Anyway I had the choice of the Galaxy Alpha or the S6 and amazingly I did not go for the S6, But I am happy with the Alpha for now seems like a great phone and it's nice to see Android has come a very long way since those early days the Apps are great and the experience so far has been all good I guess I will see after a year if I am going to stick with Android maybe go for the S7 or jump onto Windows 10.

Anyway sorry for the waffle have lots of questions to ask about apps lol

That's a very interesting list. :)
Like you I use WP and Apple myself, but neither offers quite as exciting a ride as Android. Welcome aboard!

Welcome to the forums!

Impressive list you have there...I couldn't even remember half the phones that I've had over the years.

Hello and welcome to the forums at Android Central!

Enjoy and have fun!

I also tried the iPhone 3Gs for 2 weeks, it also felt boring, so I returned it.
Since than I've tried the iPhone 4, 4s, 5, 5s and 6.

I used each, less time than the last one. When I got to the 5s, only a couple of minutes were enough to remember how boring it was.

Only seconds were spent on the 6 to just give it back!
