~2006: O2 XDA Exec. Windows Mobile 5.0 with touchscreen and integrated stylus. People were genuinely amazed by it when they saw me with it in the wild.
September 2010: HTC Desire
May 2012: HTC One X - returned due to manufacturing fault
September 2012: Samsung Galaxy Note 2
January 2013: LG Nexus 4 - purchased to have a smaller phone, but didn’t like it and gave it to my girlfriend
October 2013: LG Nexus 5 - battery life was so bad that I sold it after 3 days
November 2013: LG G2 - favourite phone I’ve had. Only changed because the screen smashed and it was too expensive to fix.
May 2015: Asus Zenfone 2 - buggy software, one of the worst screens i’ve ever used on a phone, and battery life was poor
May 2015: LG G4 - crap battery life, but would have kept it except it had a manufacturing defect. I dodged a bullet it seems, with the whole bootloop issue. Only phone I’ve ever had get so hot in normal use that it shut itself down.
June 2015: Samsung Galaxy S5 - cheap, boring and safe option. Was bored of trying to find a mid-range phone that wasn’t crap.
April 2017: Moto Z - so far have had to return it to the manufacturer twice for repair.
The hunt for an android phone that isn’t built like shit continues!
