    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.
