    Current One+3, I was very tempted by by the One+6 but resisted. I was a little less tempted by the One6T but I'm still resisting. At the end of the day my +3 is still doing a great job.

    Re: QOW: Which mobile phone do you use?

    I am using a Huawei P20 Pro, obviously no plans to change this for the foreseeable, I have only had it a few months. The only reason I got it in the first place is because my (admittedly ageing) HTC one M9 took a plunge down some steps, glass screens don't like to impact with concrete very much it seems. However, I am enjoying the uplift in performance and the amazing camera it has (those night shots, wow!). Some intuitive features such as simply tapping the screen with your knuckle to take a screenshot are nice to haves too.

    Re: QOW: Which mobile phone do you use?

    Nokia 8. It's a phone. Does what I need, gets regular security updates, but still waiting for Android 9. Other models now come first in the release pecking order...

    Got half an eye on a OnePlus 6t, but haven't had this phone for long enough to justify getting a new one.

    Re: QOW: Which mobile phone do you use?

    my Samsung e2120(?) the speakers broken on it, cost £10 in January 2011.
    spent nearly £20 total in payg in last 8 years. got 60p left

    thinking of getting a Nokia 105 as a replacement. currently £13.99 on amazon. so will be expensive an phone for me


    might even splash out on the Nokia 1 smart phone, if its on a black Friday thingy for less than £40, currently £58. just so I can get the o2 priority free things. like those socks from last week

    XS Max 256GB, no plans to update for a couple years, the only problem with it is that it can get a little hot.

    Re: QOW: Which mobile phone do you use?

    One+3T 128GB is my main phone though at work i use an ageing HTC windows phone 8 as in my job its easy to damage a phone.
    Looked at the One+6T but its not going to give me anything i need that the 3T does not already give.
    Like the look of the Mate20X which could also replace my ageing Samsung S2 tablet as well as my phone but it depends if it becomes available in the UK and at what price.

    Not used one for over 5 years and am happier for it. The one downside is online accounts sometimes wanting 2 factor authentication these days.. example= steam.

    Re: QOW: Which mobile phone do you use?

    Motorola Moto X Play.

    It's served me well in the time that I've had it and continues to do so, although if the right deal on a new phone that I felt worth upgrading to came along, I'd be happy to switch to it.

    Re: QOW: Which mobile phone do you use?

    Huawei P8 Lite 2017 (Android 7.0/Nougat). It does the job pretty well.. Has a 12MP/4K capable camera at least for still pictures. It was an upgrade from a Nokia Lumia 620 (Windows Phone 8.1) which I had had for 5 years.. It was a shame to see Windows Phone die off.. the OS still looks and feels very slick and fresh.

    I am still using my original Moto G that I paid £90 for. It does everything I need and it won't be replaced until it dies.

    Re: QOW: Which mobile phone do you use?

    S5 Neo.. Feeling it's age and having horrendous connection problems, most of which I suspect are software based (whether deliberate or not). Battery and screen fine. Camera is less so. Performance is ok besides that. Cannot justify the cost of upgrading and would not get another 'top tier' phone. Simply no point.

    Still on my OnePlus 5, it's only a year old, it still performs well. If I can make it to the post-notch era with it, I'll be all the more happy.
