    Oneplus 5 has served me well for the last 18 months but I'm awaiting delivery of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro now. If Oneplus added wireless charging I would have stayed with them.

    Lumia 925. The only reason to replace it would be if the Kindle reader stopped working on it.

    Re: QOW: Which mobile phone do you use?

    I'm using a Kodak Ektra, which I bought on impulse because it was $100 on clearance and it has really nice specs for that price. (The mixed reviews are from when it was $400 or more.) It's also quite distinctive looking, as far as Android phones go, but don't be fooled by the giant circle of glass on the back: the camera isn't super and doesn't do optical zoom.

    My main problems with it right now are that it randomly heats up in my pocket and I'm not sure the NFC actually works, because I can't get Google Pay to trigger off POS terminals (except once, when I got an error) but I haven't bothered to really try to investigate it because I doubt it's still under warranty and even if it is I don't want Bullitt (the OEM) sending me someone else's scratched up phone in exchange. But the display is nice and I love having 3GB ram instead of 1. To give you an idea of my usual budget and hardware level, my previous phone was a "free" LG K120 I got from Cricket.

    It's going to be a while before I feel it's worth upgrading again, even with the flaws, unless I damage it, which is possible because there's no good cheap case for it.

    Re: QOW: Which mobile phone do you use?

    NONE for now. LOL. Haven't had a useless time waster, er, umm, phone I mean, in ~5yrs. Yeah, I get more done now Oh and save tons of money

    That said, one is in my future at some point, just don't care right now. Hoping NV will get back in at 7nm with an intel modem (or whoever) as integrating them then wouldn't matter if it's not yours even off chip (intel/samsung will sell you one cheaper than Qcom). Power drops quite a bit at 7nm I'm guessing and I want a better gpu in my phone! GAMES, GAMES! I'll probably just buy a 13in tablet instead when someone decides to make a good one again to compete with apples new 13in (cmon NV, put out a tablet for gamers again at 7nm!).

    Heck I'd rather buy a 7nm based ShieldTV if they get off their butts and make one of those too. I have a great PC, I want android gaming next for side fun. A lot of great games on android I really want to play (have a list of over 100) and growing yearly. Just don't like devices yet. I need a bigger tablet (13in+, our 10in sucks), better gpu gaming centric phone, or 7nm shieldtv unit. They just don't have what I want this year for xmas. Oh, or 27in+ 1600p monitor with gsync or freesync. Cmon dell! ~$1050 for a 30in 1600p from Dell with neither freesync/gsync. Whatever. Sad the only thing I'm buying this xmas it seems is new rokus for 2 tvs (that have roku2 on them still...ugh) and SSD upgrades to 1tb for pc's in the house. OH well. Everything else is delayed until 7nm period. I refuse to buy 14/12/10nm (intel not till 2020 10nm so AMD soon 7nm for me) anything now knowing 7nm around the block Q1 etc. 7nm gpu in my future and a cpu as well, but again, get with it! Toys suck this year for techies IMHO. I don't count apple, they're against my religion...LOL.

    Re: QOW: Which mobile phone do you use?

    I have Iphone 6s and Samsung S7 that I am more than happy with.

    Used to buy new models as they got out, but not anymore.
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    It's probably the last Motorolla I'll ever buy.

    It does most ancillary things perfectly fine except I'm always missing messages and notifications due to the Live Display which in principal I like, but they decided to omit a simple flashing LED notification - which I don't.

    Notifications are horrendously unreliable and often don't popup on the Live Display or indicate in any way that I have a message to respond to. I only find out when I fully unlock the phone and switch to that app (text or whatsapp).

    Additionally, sometimes it vibrates and sounds when I get a message, other times it does not so I can't even rely on that.

    I'll certainly never buy another phone without a simple notification light, that lesson has been learnt.

    OnePlus 3 is still kicking, will consider upgrading next year or after, no need given technology in battery tech is still stagnant

    Re: QOW: Which mobile phone do you use?

    OnePlus 5T, got about a year ago.
    Might still have been using the OnePlus One (flashed with Lineage OS, now up to Android 8.1 at least) if the microphones hadn't gone on the old champ. Got 3 years from that one.

    So no, no plans to upgrade, planning to see how long this one can last, take it to the end of its road, signs are good so far.

    Dash Charge is super. Good battery life. Generally fast as anything. Takes good photos for me. All the stuffs work. Regular updates (Pie still waiting though). Smart looks. No notch.

    Re: QOW: Which mobile phone do you use?

    Using a IPhone 6S that has been issued by my work. 1st iPhone I have ever used as was android for many years.

    Not going to turn down a free phone with not cost to me.

    Wish it was a 6S plus. I have fat fingers.

    Re: QOW: Which mobile phone do you use?

    Galaxy S8, baby! One of the best and I love it.

    Not looking at upgrading until something revolutionary comes along. Or in another 2-3-4 years depending on how Android loads down as it ages.

    Same handset as last time this question got asked.

    I spent a little more on a better device because a better device typically lasts longer, so until I have to change my device, I see no reason to follow the Apple-sheeple pattern of upgrading every year or 18 months.

    Short short, it works, so why upgrade?

    Re: QOW: Which mobile phone do you use?

    I have an iPhone 7. It's a work phone so I didnt get any choice in it. To be fair it's a good phone and fast. I know the OS is not as good as Android, but it's good enough for me.
