    I guess the first phone I got was one of those old greenish nokia prepaid phones.
    burnt through the money cause is didn't know what info messages were or how expensive they were either and then i didn't really go for phones for a good decade or so.

    next phone was a nokia 5230 https://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_5230-2909.php
    Used it throughout my time at university, a good 5 years. to be honest, i sometimes miss its capacitive touchscreen for typing. thumbs are so inaccurate, but fingernails, now those never missed a letter.
    then came the smartphones and i got a doogee dg310 https://www.devicespecifications.com/en/model/26ef2e0c
    used that for about 3 or 4 years. we got one for me an each of my siblings. at about 120 bucks, it was a pretty great phone, despite the flaws like the useless camera and it sometimes being unresponsive near the screens edges.
    then i got a zte blade v7 lite https://www.gsmarena.com/zte_blade_v7_lite-7944.php
    used it for about 11 months, but it had issues from the start. a little shaky when watching movies of too high a quality, bluetooth slightly shaky for headphones, the android buttons would sometimes malfunction. also, again, the camera wasnt very good. but it did its job well enough at the time.
    now i bought a moto g6 plus https://www.gsmarena.com/motorola_moto_g6_plus-9001.php 2 days ago and so far, I'm pretty happy with it. should hold me over a few years, if it doesn't break accidentally. its obviously the best phone i had so far and i wish i had that camera years ago. my old phones would never make clear pictures of text and notes like this one does. would've saved me weeks of retyping my handwritten stuff

    I see you're a man with a fine taste on gadgetry.

    I got myself a moto X4 (https://www.gsmarena.com/motorola_moto_x4-8634.php) which is by all intents and purpose the same thing (except slighty worse camera, but I am not a cam fan).

    Nothing beats for me, the chop chop feature to light the way! Xiaomi might have a good contender and Nokia has (finally) risen from the ashes, but Motorola was smart to add those gesture features! and what little software added to the vanilla android experience?! pure bliss, unlike many other companies that put bloatware on theirs! I wish more companies added something similar to the chop chop feature or the twist gesture to run the camera! even a photo dedicated button. But I guess the gestures solves the problem of accidentally put on the camera.

    i like the guestures too, but unfortunately, they don't work when the proximity sensor is active (like in a flip case)

    Nope. I'm just running the latest O release. Figured i'd just settle down with one thing with this phone. I had too much data loss with my 6p cause i was always fiddling around. Pure android is pretty good already after all

    They will be rolling out bootloader unlocks eventually. Slowly, once device at a time, but it's going to happen

    If they can keep up with that promise, I am good, although waiting 2/3 years for a bootloader unlock sucks.

    About Here-ish
    Started with the OG Moto g, great phone for the time but it hasnth aged too well, really slow now

    Got a Moto x 2014 next, AMAZING phone with terrible battery life, but otherwise absolutely amazing. It got water damaged during last year's flooding, and it doesn't work right anymore.

    Currently on a Lenovo Zuk Z2 Plus, with custom firmware. The specifications are GREAT for 150$ and it's got a pretty great ROM scene. It's a glass back and rather poorly made though, especially noticable after using moto x for 2 ywars but it's VERY snappy and had good battery life, so I think I'll live with it for another year at leas

    I'm currently using a LG Stylo 3 Plus.
    Works well enough for what i do.

    I could have gotten better, but since it was free, I'm not going to complain.

    I've never bought a Smartphone yet.
    All Smartphones I got were presents from my big brother.
    Currently I have the Sony Xperia Z3 with Android 6.0.1
