MOBILE PHONES

What kind of phone do you use?
Are you loyal to the brand?

If you clicked "Other" - what do you use?

Samsung for me. Not that I really care. Never had an apple iPhone, some people think so much of them it has steered me away.

You don't even have a QLD mobile? aka: a Bakelite with an extra long cord.
Agree with your last sentence though, they are the scourge of society and are helping turn teenagers into dribbling, mindless zombies devoid of the art of face-to-face communication.

Huawei Demps........top of the range $60 model for me :righton:
Would never waste too much cash on a phone, they smash if you even look at them wrong these days.

I just bought a Nubia Z17 lite. Chinese 4g Android phone with 8 core snapdragon something or other and 6gb ram, 64gb rom. Cost under $240.00 delivered with back cover and screen protector. Most i have ever outlaid on a phone.

HTC - Had 3 or 4 of them now. Big fan, but probs will need to look into another brand next time as there's not many of them around in stores anymore. Or maybe I could head to cashies.

Google Pixel 2 XL.

Great phone, I use the Google platform for everything, no need for clunky Microsoft Office stuff anymore. Trying to press my employer to adopt the Google platform in lieu of Microsoft. Cheaper, more mobile and facilitates collaborative efforts with real time editing via their word processor and spreadsheet programs. And they are compatible with Microsoft Office.

I have a Samsung S8 and a Google Pixel 5 which I brought second hand off Ebay for $80.

I prefer the Pixel
Whatever you do DO NOT BUY A MICROSOFT PHONE. You do not know how to use it an Telstra I HATE AND LOTHE YOU, for your salesman selling them to people who don't know how to use phones. You did it too a family friend who no longer could take pictures because they can't find the app (honestly) and you did it to two mentally disabled people I know.

I have a Samsung S8 but not particularly loyal to a brand. I don't mind a PIxel and a OnePlus. I am an Android person so I will never buy an Apple but don't mind fiddling with them.

I look at prices at this website https://www.thinkofus.com.au/ as a guide but never bought anything from them. I like the local stores close by me.

I use my phone for approx 6-10hrs a day every day - (real estate agent)

used Samsung S7 Edge since it came out as flagship - so 3yrs, and recently went to the Samsung S9.

Great phones both of them.

IPhone. But is more about the ecosystem rather than the phone itself. Along with an iPad they work well together. Haven’t had a land line in years. I always get a laugh when filling out forms that they still insist on your home phone number. I’m like what’s that, I only ever use my mobile. :roll

I've got the Pixel 2 XL and previously had a Samsung S7 Edge. Prefer the Google, better keyboard for starters. I always look for battery life, audio performance and speed. I also use an iPhone 8 Plus for work - not a fan of Apple and would never buy one.

Iphone X, was an android user but the music apps on android are rubbish and i use and ipad for most of my home internet browsing so it made sense to use apple (movies, music)If it wasn't for the stuff i need to do for work a Nokia 5110 would be ideal.
