I'm in the market for a new smartphone. What do you guys use/recommend?

No its the same heat sensitive screen that everything else uses, the stylus is specifically designed to only work for that phone, and even has a few special "alt" button built in that does special functions and has like 300 different levels of touch sensitivity.

Electricity not heat.
(no specific order for any of these - just top suggestions)
If you absolutely want one right now:
If you can wait 2-3 months:
-iPhone 5S / 6 / whatever it'll be called
If you don't want something too big but want Android and not have the phone be crap:
-Galaxy S4 Mini
-HTC One Mini
There's also the Lumia 1020 if you want basically the best camera you'll always have with you, but Windows Phone might be a bit of a downer in terms of apps, especially coming from an iPhone 4.
Note 2 is pointless to get right now with the S4 out and the Note 3 around the corner, as well as the iPhone 5 for it's successor on the way as well. And no, this isn't one of those "well there's always a better phone around the corner if you keep waiting" - unless Apple, Samsung, and Google (and now HTC) intend to break the phone-release trend they seem to be sticking to.
Skip the Moto X all-together unless you really care about made in 'Murica.
And yes, the GS4 is a substantial upgrade from the GS3, unlike what some will say.
Gimme a list of stuff you'd like to do with a phone, what features you do and don't care about (ex. do you care about it being waterproof), and whatever other relevant information you can think of. I've had a lot of phones/tablets over the past year and deal extensively with them on a daily basis, so I can probably give a decent recommendation.

Get the S4.
I love my Note 2. The HTC One would be my second choice.
Cel Damage! Tonight at 8:00!
I like my Optimus G... It's a nexus 4 with LTE. It doesnt break the bank and it's a powerful phone.
I went with the S4 recently over the HTC One. Either seems like a good choice, but I didn't like the idea of not having access to the battery with the HTC (since my last phone's battery warped) or expandable memory.

I recently bought a Samsung E1150 and it's quite amazing - I can call people, I can text people, the battery easily last for two weeks without charging and... yeah, that's pretty much it ^^
I am the bringer of death. Fall to your knees and beg for mercy... Or give me a sandwich, I'm pretty hungry.
Got an s4 active recently and its been great. Its waterproof just in case you somehow get your phone wet and its still just as good as the standard s4. I cant think of a single drawback for this phone.

I like the S3 and S4 but think they are kind of ugly. I like the HTC one X and one, but do not like not having a replaceable battery.
I have the S3. Not upgrading anytime soon. I think the differences between current and last generation are too small to be spending about 500 euro or so.
