For me it was a Samsung Galaxy W bought in early 2012. Prior to that I had a Nokia 5230, of which I'm not sure whether it counts as real smartphone.

The LG Optimus S. It was my first Android phone I thought it was the coolest thing. It introduced me to the Android OS and got me playing and loving angry birds. The LG Optimus S was a reliable phone and performed fairly well. I dropped the LG Optimus S many times and it survived . Last year in 2012 I sold it and upgraded to the HTC EVO 4G LTE which is more powerful and has a bigger screen.

Prior to smartphones, I connected this to WAP over IRDA:

And then after a while, this:

Lumia 520 since about a month

Couldn't justify owning one before, but for that price, I had to cave in

I had a Kyrocera Hydro for 3 days a year of more ago. Couldn't stand it.

 

I guess I could say I still haven't had my first one still!
