    2016 Galaxy A3 as secondary device for training & workouts as well as a HTC 10 as my primary device, both running Nougat. I like the HTC 10 hardware and all round quality of the device but totally despise the Sense-less UI. My next primary phone will more than likely be another Samsung.

    A very nice device, I use one as well but it would be a lot better if it wasn't for that Sense-Less UI. I'll be switching back to Samsung come upgrade time.

    Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime. Unbeatable value for a 5" phone (at least) back in October 2016, got it straight from China.

    Nexus 5X and I greatly regret it... Should'v stuck to my much faster & much cheaper Jiayu S3 which broke after falling from 2 floors down... Dunno why I didn't buy another and instead chose to listen to other people's recommendations.

    Z3 compact with partially broken touch screen, broken WiFi, BT, FM. Keeping it for the great battery life, great performance, really no complaints. I get internet from 4G - 5 euro for 10GB of 4GB internet so no need for WiFi. BT is useless. FM radio can be streamed over the internet. Touchscreen is really the only annoyance but still, I can live with it. I plan to keep it at least 5 more years or until Sony releases a new Compact device which is worth buying. Other companies don't have a comparable device (size, battery life, weight) so I will keep this phone until it dies.

    S4 LTE i9506. With tempered glass screen protector and rubber cover since day one in June 2014, it looks like new. Lost only some 4-5% of battery capacity.

    To add to my previous comment...consumers don't need devices once a year. This cadence of releasing new tech is just a way to ensure high profits for the wealthy guys that own respective companies. I do think that we, as consumers, have a lot to lose because of this frenetic pace at which devices are released. They are clearly rushed, made with a lot of compromises, employees that develop them are payed with little money for what actually is more work (compared to releasing a new product once every 2-3 years). So we, as consumers, should act wisely and not jump to buying the latest offering each and every year. Not only you get a small increase for your hard earned money, but wealthy people get more wealthy and we all know it is a vicious circle.

    LG G2. Older phone but runs as fast as the new ones. I also installed LineageOS, Android 7.1 and it's even faster, instant. I'm not a "power user" or whatever and it does what it needs to do.

    I'm rocking a Samsung J3 2016. It's not a beast by any means, but it can do anything I want it to do easily. It's selling point is definitely its battery life though. Never ceases to impress me.

    Note 4 and 2 other Galaxy Android phones in our family. I would like Nougat but it won't be coming to my Note 4. Won't 'upgrade' to a glass-cased phone but need stylus for my fat fingers. Maybe someone will offer a stylus-equipped non-glass phone by the time my current Note fails.

    Apple iPhone 6 Plus. I plan on ditching it and getting a Sony Xperia XZ Premium as soon as it releases.

    I'm on an LG G4. While I'm still happy with it, in fact, it was a great partner during SXSW, I'm keeping my eye on the yet to be announced V30.

    During my coverage if the SXSW Interactive Conference, I hot swapped batteries like no tomorrow. There's no way I can do with an internal non removable battery.
