Coinbase is an exchange with wallet capacity. You should never use exchanges and online wallets anyways.

I also recommend mycelium, just don't hold big amounts on it!

Cheers!

Why not? I use coinbase as my regular day to day wallet in my PC. I think it is quite fast and reputable.

It's an online wallet! You don't have control over your funds. If something happens to the Coinbase, if someone hacks them or whatever, all your money will be gone. If you use it, at least don't keep big amounts in online wallets.

On the other side, I don't like Coinbase, and many serious bitcoiners don't either. Do a research, Google a bit. Coinbase complies with every damn requirement that government puts in front of them. In their TOS it's stated that they have right to transmit your person info to the governmental officers. They might be as well sending all of their personal customers data to the NSA.

Coinbase goes directly against the all of the decentralization that Bitcoin brings.

Again I repeat, with very small day to day amounts you will be OK.

my favourite mobile wallets are as follows :-

1.  used to like blockchain but they've been promising an update for the longest time to support HD and its still not out, so I've stopped using it until they do.

2.  My favourite is currently AirBitz on both iOS and Android because its easy to use, feels very secure, and it has good ways of authorising new devices (i use multiple mobile devices).  it claims some easy to use two factor auth as well.  of all the wallets I've tried on mobiles recently, this one seems to have the most going for it.

3.  for offline wallets I'm a big fan of the Trezor, and so far the only wallet software I've seen that lets you use the Trezor in a mobile environment is Mycelium (at least on Android), so thats a big vote for mycelium.

4.  Ledger Wallet is doing some very interesting work on mobile wallets.. i especially like the effort they're doing on trustlets.   Their beta of the wallet that runs in the trusted platform (trustonics) looks very interesting.  Promising potentially the security of an offline wallet like Trezor, but built right into the TPM of your mobile phone.  I'm beta testing it on my Samsung S6 Edge and it seems very interesting and potentially huge...  to have the security of a hardware wallet, in software.  unbeatable feature and portable.  It has the potential to blow away all other software wallets.  Not yet ready for prime time, but could be extremely interesting when ready.  (their trustlet currently works with myceilium)

There are few mobile wallets, but not all of them are good.

Mycelium & Blocktrail are good wallet, it has many good features & you can access your own private key
Bitcoin Wallet (mobile version) is good, but lack many features that you might need

Blockchain.info isn't too good now, many bugs & error Sad
Coinbase & Xapo are good, but both of them are centralized wallet Sad

I don't do a lot of mobile transactions, but when I do I use coinbase. However I have been selling quit a bit recently at a local ATM and I really don't like transferring my coin to coinbase just for the sake of mobility. So my question is what are some good android based wallets? That question also brought to mind that there are reviews here on all sorts of hardware, but from what I have found there is no thread on wallet review pros/cons like there are with other things. Anyway, thanks for any suggestions.



Currently I use coinbase too.
