Last week, Nick over at Gizmodo asked readers what their current mobile phone of choice was. It was a pretty interesting exercise, so I figure it's worth repeating for Lifehacker as well.

Overall market share data gives us some idea of what people put down their hard-earned cash for. According to Gartner, these were the top 10 manufacturers globally for mobile phone sales in the first quarter of 2010:
- Sony Ericsson
It's probably a fair assumption that Lifehacker readers are more likely to use a smart phone. In that category, here's the biggest selling platforms, again from Gartner:
- Windows Mobile
But none of that data tells us why people choose a particular phone over its rivals. So I'm asking Lifehacker readers: what's your phone of choice, and why did you choose it? Price? Application range? Input method? Mobile network coverage? Liked the bezel? Tell us in the comments, and I'll round up the results next week.
