What phone are you using? (Late 2018 Edition)


#81

I got a new Xiaomi A2 in their black Friday sale, was a much needed upgrade to my HTC One from 2013. It just got the Android 9 (Pie) update but is missing NFC so I’m still whipping out my Coral card and striking up conversations about Monzo when I pay :grin:

I’ve had a bad year for phones. Started with a Moto G4 Plus, then started having charging issues. To tide me over I got a Moto C Plus which was OK. When the Moto G6 came out I bought that and it was OK at first, until it started acting up and not booting.

It went off for repair and I bought a cheap Nokia 1 (I had sold the C Plus by now). I was impressed with the Nokia so when the Moto came back with the same fault I returned it and plumped for a Nokia 8 which has just got Android Pie. All good so far with it and hoping I won’t have these issues in 2019!

Tl:dr: I’m using a Nokia 8.

iPhone XS Max…Tried switching to Galaxy S9+ & Pixel 3 XL but had to go back to XS! :roll_eyes:

Recently bought Samsung Galaxy S7.
I am satisfied at this moment, but of course it’s too early to judge all its pros and cons.

iPhone XS Max - I’m on the Apple Upgrade Programme so pretty much upgrade every year.


#87

Also been with Nexus devices since 2010 Nexus S, love the stock Android experience.

Currently still rocking my OG 2016 Pixel XL as I’m not sure where I want to go next. It’s the first time in a long time I’ve felt like I have a device I don’t NEED to upgrade, so I’ve thrown it on a SIM only deal for a while until I decide.

Currently considering Pixel 3, Mate 20 Pro, OnePlus 6T.

I’ve not met anyone who actually likes the 6T.

A lot of people at work went for the Mate 20 Pro and they absolutely love it.


#89

Upgraded to the Mate 20 Pro. Absolutely loving it.


#90

I went for the iPhone XS so I can use the dual SIM. Got an EE eSIM and a Vodafone physical SIM. Handy being able to swap depending on which has the best signal.

Still rocking an S8+. Gonna wait for 5g before upgrading.


(Sacha Zarb) #92

iPhone XR, Product Red. Shifted from an iPhone X, mainly to save £20 a month on the upgrade program. Best value iPhone I reckon, excellent but of kit

Note 9

I was very happy with my Pixel 2 XL but my wife was desperate for a better phone (she still had her Nexus 5X). I did the only honourable thing, which was to buy myself the Pixel 3 XL and give her my 2 XL. (I know, I know, I’m such a thoughtful husband :clap:t2:).

In all seriousness, I was very happy with my old phone and had no intention of getting the Pixel 3. As it’s gone to my wife, I haven’t even managed to recoup some of the cost of the new one by selling it!

For me there is very little difference between the 2 and the 3, certainly not enough to warrant upgrading. If anything I sort of prefer the older phone due to the lack of a notch.

Prevous phone was a 128GB iPhone 7 which recently undertook a battery replacement (and screen due to apple breaking the Touch ID) and now my mother’s new phone.

Bought myself an iPhone X on the Black Friday sale at John Lewis!


(David I) #96

I am considering the same (although in Red obviously) but curious; what did you upgrade from, and was it a worthy update? I have an iPhone 7 currently if that changes your answer?


(Rachel Raybould) #97

I had a 6s with a second battery replacement. It was worth the update for me just because my old phone needed charging 5-6 times a day and I need to be able to walk away from the charger sometimes :sweat_smile:

I’m loving this phone so far but I do have AirPods so that helps out with charging and listening to music at same time. I might need to get the splitter at some point though that would be my only complaint so far.


(David I) #98

Thank you. My 7 is about the same as your 6s - needs charging more often than my :mondo: card :wink: not yet got myself any AirPods though - been relying on Bose QC35ii bluetooth headphones but they are a little large for day to day use!


(Rachel Raybould) #99

I would totally recommend the upgrade then!
However the AirPods need a case you can attach a tile to (I am a very short time memory person though)
