I got a free smartphone about 5 years, something Samsung. Still using it. I personally hate cell phones. I prefer being unavailable versus always in touch with others.

I getcha. Wouldn't say I hate them, but I leave mine at home most of the time. Unless I think I'll need it.

Smartphones are incredibly helpful and there are times I love mine.  But I don't like today's culture where I'm expected to be on the ready for everybody.

Samsung Galaxy S7

ZTE Blade V8.

It's complete garbage. Not even 2 years old; it takes only a few hours for the battery to go from 100% to 0% but twice as long to charge; it constantly overheats; and for some reasons all Google services suddenly stopped working two months ago.

I guess I shouldn't complain too much though, I only paid €130 for it so I should have seen it coming.

I grabbed a Moto Z Force a few years ago. I was looking for another phone but the lady showed me that you could connect a projector to it and I was sold!

A few years later and it's still my favorite phone. I got another one last year--the exact same phone--because no other phone had the lineup of features I'm used to. I even have a wafer thin battery "mod" that connects to the back. The screen is pretty much impervious to cracks. It's still pretty powerful, too.

iPhone 8.

A red one, normal size, I don’t like the big size phones. Actually this one’s already slightly too big but it’s not like I have much of a choice. The size of my previous phone, iPhone 5, was perfect. Before that I had a 4 and before that a 3G.

Phone size is one of the main reasons that i haven't upgraded in so long. I kept hoping that Apple would release another smaller model, like my SE, but it doesn't look like they're going to do so. These bigger phones suck if your work outside as they're so bulky in your pocket. They also don't fit into a cupholder like the smaller models do. :(

I own a sony Xperia xz3 for the main reason of being remote play compatible.
With the dualshock4 controller attachment, I have as much fun with it as my switch. 😉

Nokia 6.1 There are only two viable ecosystems (Android and iOS), and of them, only Android is somewhat open, so Android it is. However, Android phones have this problem where they have terrible support in terms of updates. Android One is currently the best solution to that that I'm aware of, which really restricts my options. My favourite option from the Android One phones was Nokia 6.1 I do like it quite a bit, although its lack of a notification LED is annoying. Still, I've learned to live with it, although I would prefer to have one.

Android still sucks because of how system updates go, but options are few.

None. I cancelled my cell phone plan 10 years ago, never looked back.

How do you get by? If you're an employer or an employee, I imagine having a phone is obligatory nowadays? Curious. 

Home phone, email. And when I travel I have my laptop with me, there's wifi everywhere nowadays including planes. If I'm out off the clock I don't want to be reachable.
