Take the State of the Mobile Nations phones survey for a chance at $600 for a new iPhone!

Samsung just announced the Galaxy Note and Galaxy S6 edge+, BlackBerry recently outed the Passport Silver Edition, Apple's expected to unveil the iPhone 6s in just a few weeks, and Microsoft just rolled out Windows 10 and is preparing to launch new Windows 10 Mobile flagship phones. The carriers are changing things up too — so we want to know where you stand on all these things. We want to know what's important to you in a phone and what you look for in a carrier. So we put together a quick survey to get to the bottom of all these questions, and one lucky participant will win $600 to put towards a brand new phone!

That's right, it's time for the State of the Mobile Nations Phones Survey! State of the Mobile Nations Phones Survey! We've got questions about phones and carriers that only you can answer.

We want to know — is screen size or battery life more important to you? Do you want rock solid data coverage or more data than you could ever hope to consume? All this and more, we want to know: what matters to you? Take the survey, help us find out what's important, and maybe you'll win a brand new phone in the process!

This survey's open through September 1st and is open world-wide, so have at it, folks!
