Which is your favorite phone brand?

Which is your favorite phone brand?
Which is your favorite smartphone brand? Do you even have a favorite? And what are your reasons for sticking with that brand rather than with others?

In these days when smartphones look increasingly similar, there are a few key differences in cameras and software that make them stand out, but it's also about how your phone behaves in a larger ecosystem of connected devices, wearables, wireless earbuds, drones, and so much more. It is also about price as some companies offer many feature, but only at extremely high prices that might seem greedy or unaffordable.

Whatever it is, each brand stands for its own set of unique values and fights for them and for survival in this fiercely competitive market.

Absolutely love my Samsung, used to be on an LG trip where I would have an LG device all the time (wasnt even aware of iPhone). Then I tried Samsung, I had the s7 edge and it was a like a complete 360 turn (not saying LG is bad) and haven’t turned from Samsung since. Reliable and extensive features (especially the note series) and a gorgeous display that kept getting bigger over time. I personally like the bigger phones. I have had my time with the iPhone (finally decided to try one out when the iPhone 7 came out). While buttery smooth the lack of feeling in control for an expensive device with the software was the downfall. I still have an iPhone for work, but that’s kind of what I personally feel the iPhone is designed for. iMessage is probably my favorite feature, however I’d let that go any day for streamline texting on my Samsung. Neat little things that can’t be done on the iPhone such as Facebooks messaging app having chat heads on the screen with all the active conversations is cool enough for me. Hardware is always improved each iteration of Samsung’s flagships and its always smoother each time around. So for me Samsung absolutely wins and I can’t wait to see what the S20+ has in store.

I've had them all, always go for what I believe to be the best valued phone at the time. Currently have the OnePlus 7 pro and it is the best phone I've had to date. If you stick to a single brand you'll potentially miss out on something better.

Brand loyalty, no way. I jump from brand to brand, more battery, better camera as for now it is mate 20 pro, after MWC maybe something completely new. Unfortunately Samsung in Europe will be available only with exynos, so no Samsung for me. iOS - not for me because of low functionality, after around 40 min struggling to copy/past, download/upload using my qnap NAS, no way I will hold this piece of s**t-tech in my hands again.

Exynos won’t disappoint you in any way, you are just being a victim of Placebo effect.

I used to have iphones for some reason one good quality pictures I were able to take, two security and tree simple operating system, but working with iTunes was super annoying also limited about everything. So I decided to move to android and I met Huawei mate 9 and to be honest I chose it because of Leica Lenz on it and now I completely falling love with Huawei brand, I compare my phone to my friends phone and never disappointed me

Same with me, don’t need to use iTunes at all. But yeah I got Apple Music subscription. Before that I use to upload songs through iTunes.

First it was all about Nokia, then i went to Sony, meant to come back to Nokia but found the iPhone for the first time and since then been iPhone user. In all these years i don't see any real reason to go for something else. As long as i'm happy i stay with Apple, if i see something better i go there, but knowing we only have iOS and Android as a real options i think i will keep my iPhone for a very long time because Android is no real option in it's current state.

Android is my only option at the moment and probably forever. It's funny how all you iPhone users have to huddle around the guy at work with the android unit to watch a live playoff football in HD all free without a subscription. Unless of course you are happy with your iPhone giving you score updates.

I have no idea what you are talking about. But i still wondering why you can watch that free in Android and not in iOS? Is this a legal or illegal thing? I don’t live in US, i only check the superbowl and that we can see free

Any that offers the best value for money whenever I'm due for upgrade. No favorites!

The original Nokia , the kind of innovations it have brought to smart/ mobile phone market in mere months ; others just could not replicate it . All we have now is boring rectangular slab offering more or less similar features and very less differentiation

Oppo Find 5 back in 2013 made every other phone look boring and cheap. Build quality and aesthetics were second to none. Gorgeous 5 inch 1080p screen. 32gb rom 2gb ram and nfc to boot. Great phone

I'm going for Samsung and Sony. Nothing else seems to catch my attention. Samsung : very good quality materials & superb design. Sony: best Android experience ever, best software optimizations, best battery life, best update service, great monolithic design. No SD card slot = not interested!

I've used mostly Samsung the past 7 years, but I'm really intrigued by the Asus ROG Phone 2.

There is no single reason I like the Samsung phones, it's the overall package. That being said, I don't think my next phone will be a Samsung. Their prices have become beyond ridiculous!

I am stuck with Sony. Got a Xperia 5. A relative compact device and a clean Android version. Suit my needs.

Huawei and Apple. Huawei phones are monsters. And Apple simply gets a lot right. Consistency and Updates, they make solid all-rounders even if not quite the best at everything. The 11 series hit hard.

Motorola wins my vote this time around. LG is a close second, and perhaps I will return to Nokia once another generation of inexpensive HMD smartphones has left the factory, and been tried and tested publicly... If I had endless money, then Apple and Samsung would be my top choices, but the endless money supply has not yet materialized...

Can’t decide between Apple,Huawei and Nokia..i grew up a fan of nokia back in the days but HMD isn’t the same as the old Nokia..As for Huawei ,i love everything about them just like i love everything about Apple..
