    Pixel 4a. Liked the pixel 3 better, but left it on the bus one day and it just sort of disappeared, never to be seen or heard from again.

    Since two months a company provided iPhone 12, 128 GB, green. No cover, no screen protector, no nothing. We have a very leisure fair use policy, so I don’t need a privately owned phone. And we get new hardware every three years and can keep the old one.

    PS: Because I understand the questions of being reachable all the time. When on vacation I switch work Exchange sync off and I don’t pick up work related calls. Our company has the “policy” that, if it’s really necessary, specific people will write an SMS and we call back as we see fit. Happened two or three times in 10+ years. It’s seriously a good company I work for.

    The Pixel 6 looks amazing. The camera made a notable leap forward from the Pixel 5. I wish I could have waited... but I had to get rid of my old cell phone. Still, the Pixel 5 is an amazing phone in many respects. Very happy with it. This was a serious advancement from the Pixel 4.

    I'm just using an old Samsung S9.

    I probably wouldn't even own a cell phone at all if one wasn't required by my work. Mine works internationally (which most don't, especially down in South America). I have AT&T service which pretty much sucks, but it does work (sort of) in about every country, and I travel for work pretty extensively.

    Anyway, my phone is probably pretty dated, but it seems to work..."okay". It replaced an S4.

    My iPhone 12 and Samsung S20 work in South America with AT&T (personal) and Verizon (work). After switching to a GSM phone, I have not had issues with phones working internationally except for Japan. My cellular iPad doesn’t work because I don’t have the correct plan for travel outside North America.

    This is my first Pixel. I'm sold.

    I used Samsung Galaxies exclusively since their inception. In 2018 I decided I didn't need a 1000$ phone, and that a 200$ phone with VERY similar specs to the 4yr old flagship it was replacing was good enough for me. I was terribly wrong.

    Budget phones have their place, but there's one thing I really missed and stopped using was the camera. The Moto G7 made me realize I need a proper camera, just for entertainment. It was downright useless on that phone. So when I was considering going back to a flagship just because of a camera (Samsung S21 in this case) The Pixel 6 came out and it turns out it is a hell of an option for about 30% less than comparable phones.

    So basically it turns out there was a super awesome option in between a 200$ budget phone and a 1000$ flagship. I'm super happy with it.

    Also battery life is on a whole other planet compared to my Moto G7.

    After 3 years wih a Note 10+, I upgraded to the S22 Ultra (Samsung, all). The only dislike I have is that they discontinued the memory card. What I do like is the cameras. Super great zoom!

    Still the same S21U, almost a year old now. It´s got a few scratches but not enough to replace it. I picked up some accessories along the way.

    Traded in my S20U for an S22U. The camera on my S20U wasn't working to well.

    Work phone switched form S20 to Pixel 6 since Google started restricting LDAP access for non Pixel phones.

    FINALLY moved from my ancient LG flip phone to a iPhone 12.... bought refurbished from Apple; 128 GB. Sorta forced into it with the imminent death of anything less than 4G...

    Flip phone still works perfect. Just lacks functionality. But then I never needed anything more...

    Although the power of the iPhone 12 is certainly a HUGE plus....

    The EXACT same thing happened to me in October.
    Suddenly, no more 3G on my perfectly good otherwise super efficient great battery 12 year old Samsung Convoy flip phone.
    Loved that phone.
    So I replaced it with what appeared to be an equivalent flip phone.
    THAT turned out to be one of the worst phones in existence.
    Then, in November, I got an absolutely killer deal on an iPhone 13 pro "pocket computer".
    It's been fun, rewarding, and sometimes frustrating:furious: catching up with technology.
    Nice to see you back!

    Lowly Moto G 5G 2022. Like some of the others here I also had to “update” my phone because I was told my current phone couldn’t be upgraded as they were changing over to newer technology and my service would end on 6-30-22. That said, other than it being bigger than I want, I like it…and it was cheap.

    Yes, good to see you back Moshe Ben David!
