    I currently have a Samsung S7 edge. Thought it was cool at first, but now really can't stand it. This is the second Samsung S7 edge that I have had, as the first one's screen died (developed a green hue, and then went out completely turning pink) within 2 months of ownership. They sent me a replacement under warranty. On the second phone, I cracked the screen on it's first fall (about a 16-20" fall) after owning for about 6-8 weeks. I do have a decent Spigen case on it, but the rounded edge of the screen was still exposed and it landed right on the exposed edge (just my luck). These were my first ventures with a smart phone from Samsung. Had an LG G series before that served me very well, and I still have if the Samsung bites the bullet, ( which seems like it is on it's way as the screen is now developing a green hue..) These Samsung phones are the only smart phones that I have had much issue with. Previously have had a Blackberry, a couple HTC's, the LG and now the 2 Samsung phones. All the others were still good phones after 2 years. 1st Samsung phone lasted 2 months, and the second doesn't look like it will make it to a year and a half (partly my fault with the fall, but I blame the phones design for part of that).

    I really don't see the appeal to the rounded screen. It really distorts the edges of the view screen and sometimes I can't make out the ends of sentences etc, let alone making the phone more fragile on falls in my case. After owning one for a time, I won't replace this phone with anything that has a rounded screen, which eliminates all the new Samsung Galaxy series. The others in the house all have Iphones, and I think I maybe leaning that way for my next phone. I think the Android phone spec out a little better, but Apple products seem to work more efficiently in general.

    I use an IPhone 7, I'm sure there were cheaper alternatives since all i use it for is call, text, email, and take pictures of my cats.. but I have bunch of Mac stuff so i feel like i'm too committed to switch now haha.

    I've been rocking my LG V20 for almost a year now. I love this thing and don't have any plans to move anytime soon. The removable battery, IR blaster, and second screen are great features.

    I have used my Apple watch from morning until evening as my cell phone for calls and texts. I was skeptical of the watch as a phone until I received this watch as a Christmas present.

    In the past I have switched between iOS and Android but the watch pairing with the iPhone may prevent from me switching back to an Android phone except when I purchase a local SIM on international vacation trips to use in an international phone. Many US phones are missing some international LTE bands.

    Samsung S9+ with white dome screen protector and a Spigen case. Slim, durable and all around great.

    I'm not entirely sure how durable a phone is supposed to be, but I've been really disappointed with my recent phone choice. It's an HTC One A9 I got for a good deal at Sprint, and it's been nothing but pure trouble since I got it. Before I had it, I used a Samsung Galaxy s3, which served me faithfully for 4 good years. The HTC lasted about a year, before it would die and refuse to come back. I returned it to Sprint for an exchange (which was frankly like pulling teeth) until I got a replacement model. This one I've had for about 8 months, and it's showing symptoms of dying as well. All I know is I'd like to drop HTC and Sprint, when money allows and I get the chance.

    iPhone 7+ in a Magpul case, Apple Watch, iPad 9.7, Macbook Pro and Airpods. They all fit together nicely - yep, I've bought into the Apple plan but am very happy. The last time I rebooted my Macbook I think the uptime was on the order of 6 months. Try that on a Windows machine. The stuff just works.

    Samsung A8. I upgraded from the S6 last week. It's a better phone generally, especially with regards to battery life and expandable memory (micro sd).

    Retired my S5 which still (mostly) works. When the screen was very dim and physically cold (below 55 f) it would flicker with green lines across it. Couldn't quite bring myself to bite the bullet on any new phones. LG ThinQ, Pixel 2XL were the better of the choices available but not at current prices. The rounded screen on newer Samsungs or candybar length on the Note8 turned me away from Samsungs newer offerings. Although I did like the Note8's camera. I probably would have bit on the Pixel 2 but it didn't have wireless charging, which I've come to really like.


    So went for an older semi-upgrade to a Note4. Wish I had gone for the Note4 when it came out but I couldn't argue with the $1 price and I pay tax on one of those old good bestbuy blackfriday deals.

    I've got the Samsung Galaxy S9+ with a Samsung Galaxy Watch (the version that just came out, 46mm). Love the combo. I had a gear see that I sold and have missed since.

    I had a HTC U11 from this past April until early this month. I bricked it trying to unroot the phone. Now it's in the HTC repair shop. It will take a while to get it back so I just got a new HTC U12+. I like HTC phones and hope they can stay competitive to stick around.
