Maybe later I'll repeat some of it here. ;-)
I edit OSM since May, 2008.
I'm mostly using Android-based GPS, mainly a Samsung S7 and a OnePlusOne, OsmAnd and Locus is the main recording software (usually one runs on continuous and the other in 1s / 5m resolution). Sometimes I use a Holux M-1000C which is a nice little box to have, and it does have a different unreliability then the phones. I postprocess using (gps)prune, which helps to create both geolocated imagery (correlating known position with known image) and compressed/simplified tracks (which get uploaded). bt747 is used for the Holux; and finally JOSM for everything mappingy.
Imagery is created usually with a Panasonic DMC-GX1 (earlier Canon A720IS) which gets synched to a key image with known position. Often using android images for syncing (since they include GPS stamp but harder to use when moving).
As one measurement is no measurement I usually use several Android based device for parallel track recording. The units are a OnePlus1, a DesireHD (and rarely now a Motorola Atrix), plus a Samsung Galaxy Tab; of these the O+1 and Galaxy able to see Russian (GLONASS, ГЛОНАСС) and Chienese (BDS, 北斗衛星導航系統) satellites, too. (Unfortunately none of my stuff handles GALILEO yet.) I'm usually using either OsmAnd or Locus; former shows a better vector map and the latter gives more detailed GPS track info en route. Sometimes I make photos with the mobile devices but contrary to logic they don't record viewing agle in the images regardless the compass present (this has been changed a bit with the Samsung S7 as it seems to have a much more reliable compass, still barely useful).
Lately I got a grab on an "action camera" (SJ4000 clone) -- then it self-destructed after a year or so, and I was lazy to replace the non-replaceable battery; but got a Yi Cam which actually have a pretty nice 2k imagery and replaceable battery [and a pretty good image stabiliser, mind you; but it have hard time with fast brighness changes] and realised that JOSM have no working video mapping plugin. Or anyone else. Damn. So I usually either set it to timelapse aka. image every second or cut the movie to 1s resolution imagery and geocorrelate them with tracks -- JOSM geocoded imagery plugin works well (and in the recent years there was only negative progress on video plugin, so no luck for movies yet).
