Right now it's crazy season for new phones. Between the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Android L, the BlackBerry Passport and Classic, and Windows Phone 8.1. There's never been a hotter time for new gadgets. So we want to know what you think — what phones are you looking forward to, what's important to you in a phone, and what you think of your carrier. So we have a survey, and one lucky survey-taker will win a $600 towards a brand new phone!

So it's time for the State of the Mobile Nations Phones Survey! We've got a few questions on smartphones and carriers that will help us answer all kinds of questions about what matters to you.

Do you find screen size or battery life more important? Is it more pressing that your carrier's voice quality be better or that you have access to an unlimited bucket of data? What matters to you? That's what we want to find out! So take the survey and maybe you could win a new phone!

This survey is open through October 31st, and is open world-wide, so have at it!
