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.

So far just the HTC HD7 and Nokia Lumia 710. I would agree the core experience is the same across both devices. But the Lumia 710 gets it done quite a bit faster. :)

I really liked the Titan and I had thought about getting it personally, but at the last minute, I just didnt think the size of it would suit my needs so I went with the Focus S. I havent looked back...

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

First was an HTC Trophy in April of this year (VZ's only WinPhone) which really isn't a bad device but an update and/or newer Windows 7.5 phones (c'mon VZ) would be nice.
Switched to AT&T in Mid-May and got a Focus S (nice screen but just didn't care for or enjoy the feeling in my hand. Seemed too big and also fragile.) Kept only a week /
Got a White Nokia Lumia 900 3 1/2 weeks ago (Love, LOVE, love it!) ... only concern is while the large 4.3" size is great for reading and scrolling the web... it sometimes just feels a tad too big as well in my pocket and in my hand.
Have a Cyan Lumia 800 on order than should arrive next week. If the usability is like the 900 and the smaller 3.7" size feels right in my hand/pocket without giving up too much screen real estate - that could be my dream device! ;)

Had a Focus. Now mainly use a Titan.
In many areas I liked the Focus better. But that Titan 4.7" screen makes it too hard to go back.Talk to me about Windows Phone, Windows 8, XBOX, art, animation, design, or anything! Be sure to follow me on Twitter and friend me on Facebook (say you're from here or I may not accept)

BTW, I picked up another Lumia after going through three of them and switching to the Titan II. My Titan II WiFi just quit working (hardware failure) so I picked up another Lumia with another upgrade I had available. I had the intention of giving the Lumia to another user on my account, once I received the warranty replacement Titan II. As it turns out, I finally received a Lumia with no issues. At this point, I think I may keep the Lumia just because I like the Cyan color so much.

I've had a couple myself.
(1) Quantum (If it had a 4" screen it'd be perfect). Gone.
(2) DVP (Camera absolutely blows + no wi-fi ICS). Wife also has one. Best Keyboard.
(3) Focus (Easiest to unlock but hated the lock button location). Gone.
(4) Omnia7 (Same as Focus but nicer materials). Gone.
(5*) An Apollo with physical keyboard and 4" screen. *wishlist

Two. Surround purchased on launch day. And L900, picked up on pre-launch day. Surround has now been delegated as my new backup. My last Tilt2 (I had 3), my old backup, shipped out today to a happy eBay customer.

I owned the HD7 and Nokia Lumia 900 and my boyfriend owned the OG Focus. The HD7 pictures look washed out in low light settings in comparison to my Nokia, but they were brighter on auto settings. The hardware on my HD7 though started to become loose like my camera button and USB port, haven't had that problem with the Nokia yet. The Focus had an awesome screen in comparison to the HD7, but I didn't really play with it to make comparisons. And while the HD7 and the Nokia have the same screen size, it doesn't feel like I'm carrying a brick around with the NokiaI own an LG Optimus G but the majority of my posts are on WPCentral. Go figure

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.

HTC Touch Pro (1st smartphone), then Samsung Omnia 7 (got rid of after 1 year due to bad operator in Australia - Optus), HTC Titan (had to buy from Mobicity as no Gen 2 devices on Telstra) then now HTC Titan 4G (Titan II) - original Titan went to my wife, she wanted to get rid of Iphone 4 for a WP7 :)
