Still have my iPhone 5. I'm happy for now.  Looking forward to the next full OS iteration but really - I don't need something more to fiddle with...

Nexus 4, great phone and you definitely can't beat the price if you're buying a phone outright without a contact.

iPod Touch 4th generation and a Samsung dumb-phone. About $8-15/month depending on how often I use it.

droid maxxx

extremely happy with it. Great battery life, big screen but not too big, great picture, good camera.
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Droid... the one before the maxx... so less battery life.  I have it rooted with SafeStrap installed.  Run a couple different phone roms plus the stock rom.

OK I need some new games to entertain me now that 2048 is wearing thin.  I don't mind paying for an app up front but I would like some games that I won't have to rely on in-app purchases in order to have fun.

It might be weird, but I downloaded Disney's Frozen and Maleficent for my daughters recently, and I'm constantly playing them. They're basically the same game, just with different trappings. Very similar to Bejeweled, only with levels that each have different goals to pass the level.

It limits how much you play (which is actually good for me). You start with 5 lives and every time you fail at a level you lose a life. You get a new life every 30 minutes (max of 5), or you can buy extras. They have other in-app purchases for special tools and stuff, but I hate in-app purchases and I can get through the levels without them anyway.

Four months later and I'm still constantly playing both Frozen and Maleficent (without any in-app purchases). Finished roughly 290 levels on Frozen and 195 on Maleficent so far.

To be fair... they're an awful lot like Angry Birds, which I only just recently stopped playing because my little iPod couldn't handle them anymore and I didn't want to start from scratch on our iPad.

No shame Charlie - Level too high clash of clans and beaten ~510 levels of candy crush...So if you'll just step aside, I'll take the ridicule now....

I've got the samsung galaxy S5, I've been thinking about loading a dos and n64 emulator on it soon so I can take some classics like warcraft or starfox on the go.

Osmos, Auralux, Hyperpath and other resource based games are some of my faves. "Choose to survive"... Text/turn based game is cool for a bit. Tales of Illyria one and two. Vector is a fun parkour game.

If you never tried Osmos or Auralux, you are missing out IMHO.

Mobile games are the worst.

Mobile called. It asked for your "developer-card" back
