Just wanted to start a general discussion about smartphones.
I'd like to ask you the following:

1. What phone are you using at the moment?
2. Are you happy with it?
3. What are you gonna buy next? And when?
4. What do you think about the current flagship models (Samsung S10 and iPhone XS)?


1. I own an iPhone X and I also have a company phone, which is a Samsung S8.
2. I was always an iPhone fan, but the S8 has so many useful features that it changed my opinion on Android-phones.
Sometimes I prefer the S8 over my X.
3. I really like my company phone. That's why I wanted to purchase a Samsung S10+. Furthermore I like its design, camera and specs. But I just had a look at its price and I was completely bamboozled.
In Germany the price for a S10+ starts at 1250€ (= $1420). I know prices for android phones usually drop rather quickly, but it's still ridiculous how expensive it is.
4. Way too overpriced. And I'd recommend the iPhone X over the XS (the price difference is imo in no way justified unless you want to flex lol).


Welp, I'm just gonna till summer then I'm going to purchase a Samsung S10 (not the plus, because it's not worth it).

Charger Port was iffy for about 8 months and my manager at work fixed it for me so its like brand new, (Saved me from spending a large amount on the X)
Im probably going to buy the X next whenever this one breaks
I like how the new Samsung 10 model has a foldable screen, very cool and never before seen. However I think androids are trash compared to Apple

It's true Apple products are "limited" (Android allows you to customize your phone), but I honestly think it's one of Apple's strengths.
A huge variety of customization is not necessary for most people. I barely changed anything on my company phone too.

Yeah, my very first phone used to be a LG android phone then a Samsung S3 then I switched completely to iPhone, because my first two phones were trash.
I had performance problems after a few months.

My old iPhones all work like a charm (even now). Truth be told, battery life is terrible, but other than that you can still use them (I don't collect my older phones, but my younger siblings/cousins have them so I can tell lol).


Google Phones are way too close to iPhone. They feel like iPhone copies. Why bother buying a google phone if you could just buy an iPhone?
Samsung and Huawei phones are at least different.


The reason why I'm switching to Samsung:

- Headphone port
- Battery life
- Notch annoys me
- Price
- Always On Display


Biggest aspect is price tho. I wouldn't buy Samsung if they keep their price range lol Not gonna pay +800€

More customizability. Its not that much like apple either.

1. Airpods and convert charger to headphone
2. Iphone 10 battery life just as good to me
3. rest of that stuff doesn't matter to me personally i guess

LG Stylo 4

2. Are you happy with it?

Ya

3. What are you gonna buy next? And when?

Honestly no clue, whenever this phone stops working is when I'll get a new one. After my experience with this phone so far, I must just get another LG

4. What do you think about the current flagship models (Samsung S10 and iPhone XS)?

I hate apple products so I'm biased against iPhones.

I've heard some people don't feel comfortable with Airpods. But it appears it's a small minority.

I use them regularly and they're perfectly comfortable. Sound quality sucks compared to other headphones, but Airpods can be used during sport without any problems and they look good.

I got my iPod 5th gen in late 2012. It was a good product but now, 7 days, later, its battery only lasts through about 30 minutes of use.

2. Ye

3. iPhone X or whatever the latest one is when this one breaks
4. Gf, majority of friend group use imessage. Easier to contact them, and they basically refuse to switch to any other messaging app because america. I also enjoy using Telegram X a lot more on an iOS, much sleeker. Also not a huge customization patrician so that sorta thing doesn’t entice me too much. Battery life is decent enough on the iPhone, pretty sure its a bigger issue for people who play mobile games but huge waste of time id rather not indulge in. The camera for photos and videos is wonderful, the speakers are great (u can also just buy proper speakers). Price is whatever, but very understandable if people need to buy the cheaper option. Pretty much see no reason to switch to Samsung atm.

It's not so much about the models, it's more about the company you choose to support. Apple has continuously delivered the same phone over and over again after Steve Jobs died. The quality of their product has gone tremendously since his passing. They are also scamming their customers with macbooks, refusing to fix them, or falsely identifying the issues with them. They are also known for throttling CPUs before a new product is about to get released without the consumers knowledge. They faced many lawsuites over this. Look at Apples 5 year as a stock, it's going down ridiculously and it's based on the products and lies.

As far as the S10+, mine has 12 GB of RAM, a terabyte of space. I can record 4k 60 fps videos. I have 5 cameras attached (2 in front - 3 in back). The speedtest beats the iPhone xs in every single aspect. I can run 30+ games at once and not bottleneck. The unlock feature uses soundwaves that bounce off the ridges of your fingerprint to unlock the phone. The camera has built in AI that can change the features of your face without noticing editing. Everything is customizable and samsung supports 3rd party vendors to fix your phone if it breaks. Apple threatens 3rd party vendors.

If you live with hype and the stigma of being "cool", get an iPhone. But currently the best phones lie within Samsung.
