Still using my S9 Plus, haven't found a reason to upgrade yet. If only Google made good phones, I'd have switches years ago.

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. :(

Yep this is exactly the problem. Sadly for though the big phones sell way better so I doubt we’ll see a smaller iPhone ever again. My 8 is barely okay in size, but like I said, the 5 (and SE) were a tad better.



Sony Xperia XA. Cost me £80 from O2s 'Like New', served me well and unless it breaks, I see no reason to get a new one. It runs the apps, makes the calls and sends the texts.

Hmm, pie.

Blackberry key2, best smartphone/device i have used by far.



right now xiaomi redmi note 5, it's a nice device nothing special, got it almost free after selling my redmi note 3 pro. redmi note 3 pro on the other hand, for it's release time and price was a real beast. before that I had a nexus 5 which was stolen, got used to that stock android feel. so all my phones now run only aosp roms.

I used to share this thinking.  But, my lifestyle changed a bit, to find myself doing a lot of walking. I upgraded to a larger phone specifically because reading text on this site while walking was difficult on the small screen.  I got used to it quick, and though I would still prefer a smaller device in my pocket, the benefits of the larger screen and the larger battery that usually comes along with that, far outweigh the negatives.

It went similarly for me. My first smartphone was a Samsung S3 mini, and when that one broke I used a cellphone for a couple years because I couldn't find such a nice, small phone anymore.

However, I'm not sure I would want such a small phone anymore these days. Apps are programmed with larger screens in mind, and tend to get hard to decipher on a small screen, as my cousin could attest on her 4.5 inch old Smartphone.



I have an iPhone SE, bought it because it was the cheapest Apple Phone, and since everything Apple is overpriced I had to get the cheapest. Waiting on Apple to release a successor to the SE before I upgrade, there are rumors of one coming next year so hopefully that is true. Though if they decide to continue this no headphone jack rubbish I may be forced to change to an Android phone even though I don't trust Android's security.

I'm really close to just buying another brand new SE. I don't need my phone to be able to do do more than simple tasks. I use to get almost 2 full days out of 1 charge with my SE, with the way that i use it.



I don't have a phone. But I do have an iPad Pro (which is actually useful for me).
If you have something important enough to say to me, you'll find me other ways.
