Which mobile phone do you have and was there a particular reason why you bought it?
My old iPhone had a broken back panel and I wanted an update. Went to an Apple Store and they took my damaged phone and I got a discount (after looking at eBay / similar local sites) that seemed fair.
iPhone 5s as this was last one at the time with reasonable size. Nowadays I am slowly preparing for upgrade, but I want to see iPhone with 5G support before I make a choice.
I have my OnePlus 3T by the way it’s a cool hardware but stop receive updates and the actual android version is 9.
I really like this brand, clean OS and very fast and I never had any problem with my phone and I had on almost 5 years in a row.
So I decide to use another custom ROM, and its very easy to unlock this android and are many ROM’s for OnePlus… and the actual ROM I use it’s called Evolution X with android 10 and very stable and I enjoy it so much…
Its a good option for someone avoid to buy apple stuffs… we see more and more good companies focus on build a good quality mobile in China, Korea and so on…
Sony Xperia XZ. Yes there are many X and Z in that
I got it because it looks like a modern Nokia brick. Just joking. I like all the specs and runs really well.
Samsung C9 Pro.
Google Pixel 4 XL
I didn’t had much of a choice… My boss bought it and handed it over to me. So its a work phone officially.
I use a $30 USD flip phone from Consumer Cellular.
I only need talk and an occasional text, so my phone bill is ~$22 a month.
When we need maps on the go, we use my wife’s iPhone.
I pay twice that for 11 numbers… It is funny to see the telecom prices in the US.
iPhone 11 Pro. Happy resident of the mythical walled garden so when I need to replace I get whatever’s at the top of the pile right then and keep it for a few years. On Giffgaff (O2’s MVNO in the UK) PAYG or Koodo (Telus) when I’m in Canada on a really low tariff.
The Google Pixel 4 XL for me, because it’s easy to put on my own OS if I so want, or root it, and they are pretty reliable, although mine gets pretty warm at times, which is causing the backing layer to become unglued so I need to fix that…
My lead had similar problems, it’s covered by warranty here.
I’m a cheapskate.
I’m under the impression the average monthly mobile bill in the US is $50~$70.
$40 before taxes and fees, so yeah between $50-$70 is about accurate for unlimited everything that I have (and I use substantial amounts of bandwidth so I get my money’s worth, lol).
Galaxy Note 10 plus. I read a lot these days and I don’t want to carry a tablet with me along with the phone. Also, had really good experience with Galaxy Note 8 years ago.
Got iPhone X on release, replaced it for 8Plus 1.5 years later because the notch irritated me to no end. -.-
I might buy the biggest iPhone 12 though, I like the huge screens and I probably can make peace with the notch.
I am also entertaining buying the Asus ROG Phone II but I might just wait out the 3 first.
I have an Asus Zenfone 6, the one with the rotating camera.
When I bought it, it was pretty fresh on the market but I got it for pretty cheap off eBay. I was looking for a phone with a good battery and a fast CPU, so I wouldn’t have the need to upgrade in the foreseeable future. The flip camera and big screen which come with it, were just a bonus.
I’ve now been using it for nearly a year, and I’m quite happy. While the camera is gimmicky, it works really well and as you can imagine the selfi quality is great.
