    Since I've recently switched from Samsung to Xiaomi, I thought I'd make a little poll to see what our crowd is using.

    Of course, we also have an option for Keneth and anyone else still living in the Dark Ages. :D

    It would be interesting also to hear how long everyone's had their current smartphone and how happy they are with it.

    I've got a Samsung S7 edge. I've had it for about 2.5 years. I like it just fine. I don't need the latest and greatest. It works. It's not Apple. That checks all of my boxes.

    LG V20. Bought it because it was on sale just before the V30 was coming out and I was switching from my old Virgin Mobile account to Ting. I like it, but I'm not a big cellphone guy; I only bring it with me when I need to.

    HTC One X+, had it since 2013. Got it a couple months before I was laid off, and money's been tight every since. I need a better job before I can upgrade, but it works well enough for now.

    I got my first smartphone last year somewhere, I think. A Motorola (I feel that I'm missing some duplicate letters in there, but can't be arsed to check). Though I suppose they were taken over by Lenovo so I don't think Motorola exists much anymore. Oh well, the phone is fine, and was pretty cheap.

    Interesting how so far everyone's got a different brand and no Apples yet. :heh:

    Switched to a Samsung S10 recently after my S5 broke after a good 4 years of service. Let's hope this one lasts me as long. :D

    Currently using a Pixel 2, it' still working great so far. All I really use it for is taking photos of my wife, or listening to music while I work/exercise. I'm thinking of moving to an iPhone this next cycle for the sake of battery life.

    No Smartphone. I’m still using my old Sony Ericsson T280i that I bought more than 10 years ago. No problems with the battery when it is off at night and no useless gadgets are syphoning power like with modern "phones".
