iPhone 8 Product Red. I think I'll be keeping this one as long as I can. It does what I want it to do. I don't like the new phones with facial recognition. And besides, I kept my flip phone long after everyone else switched to smartphones. I had to abandon the flip phone because T-Mobile changed the network hardware and it wouldn't work anymore.

Currently using an iPhone XS Max. I switched from a Samsung Galaxy S8+ back in October, and while I generally have been an Android fanboy I'm actually really liking the iPhone. I used to switch back and forth all the time but the last time I had an iPhone when the 5 came out, I switched due to the Siri eyes free feature so I could voice text while I was driving through the UConnect system on my Ram which I couldn't do with the Android.

iPhone XS Max in silver/white. I'm locked into the Apple ecosystem to the point where I'll lose major (or all) functionality on my other devices if I switch to another type of phone. I generally only keep phones for one year, so I'll probably upgrade to the new one this fall.

The notch took some getting used to when I had the X, but it seems to disappear on the larger screen. I don't even notice it anymore. Face ID is also great. I do wish they'd switch to USB-C instead of Lightning.

Pixel 2 XL "panda" 🐼

I've had it for a year and a half now, and don't really have an itch to replace it yet. I do miss the wireless charging that my old Nexus 5 had, but the battery in my Pixel is awesome and still going strong so far, and I never have to worry about it. Like my Nexus 5, it's still snappy and I still have another year or so of OS updates to come for it. We'll see what the Pixel 4 looks like. I didn't care for the notch on the Pixel 3 XL, so I skipped it.

It replaced a piece of garbage huawei Nexus 6P that huawei was absolutely awful about repairing (well known battery drain issues, and it got very slow)

Xiaomi Mi A1. I'm locking forward to a Mi A3 or another phone from Google One program.

Unfortunately over here Pixel is very expensive and hard to get.

Yeah, my current Pixel is about 3 times what I paid for my Nexus 5 lol

I have an original Pixel that I got about two years ago when I returned from Okinawa. I had enough issues with my iPhone in Okinawa that I was ready to get back to Android, and wanted the more frequent updates that come with a Pixel compared to phones from other manufacturers.

How are you liking the pixel 2 xl? My dad has been looking for a "new" phone and we narrowed it down to that for him.

How are you liking teh s10 and just curious as to why android over ios? The s10 is actually the phone i'm possibly thinking of switching to. I like the design much more then the x but i'm not sure how i'll feel using android os and then having a phone that doesn't hold value as well

I have never been an Apple guy. I have always loved my Android products. But I really like the S10+. I have it in a shockproof case since I am known for dropping my phone and it helps because the only thing I hate about it is the curved edges, so the case eliminates that. Video and pictures are spectacular. Even though I am a professional photographer by trade, a lot of the stuff you see on MoparInsiders.com and its social media sites is from my S10+.

Some examples...
