    Pixel line is the only alternative that makes sense.

    I haven't really thought too much about it - I love my Pixel 2 so much! - but probably something from Pixel, HTC, or OnePlus. Or LG.

    As you can probably tell, it's hard for me to choose between phones. 🤣

    I'm leaning towards a Samsung Galaxy S9 Active when they come out. Dual speakers and Dolby Atmos so it won't be a step down audio wise.

    Well after some reading it sounds like the Active is the red headed step child of Samsung in that even though it's the same specs (just flat screen and bigger battery both of which I prefer) it doesn't have DayDream support or get patched like the regular Galaxies.

    Time to go back looking for a replacement.

    Let us know what else you are considering!

    Since its unknown whether ZTE will return, I was originally hunting for a Galaxy S7 Edge, but have been seeing some very sweet deals on the LG G6 in new or open box condition. I own an LG OLED TV and it's amazing; that plus the now 2 year warranty on new LG phones makes it a good candidate. Not sure if the Axon 9 will ever be seen since the news hasn't mentioned anything about Google allowing use of its services with ZTE.

    I had a pixel phone. Other than pure Android, the pixel sucked. I went right back to my Axon7 and S7 EDGE. Now I'm on an LG V30 and loving it.

    For me using the pixesl, in addition to "stock Android", the benefits of a class leading camera, only OEM giving consist updates, only oem taking security seriously, only oem not selling/sharing user data, metal body, USB-power delivery support, class leading performance, class leading software experience, excellent battery life and other features make it a winning lineup for me. But I definitely get some people have other priorities.

    I too wanted an upcoming Axon iteration... Hopefully we'll get one!

    How about the phone I just got? I just bought an Android One Moto X4, and it is everything good about the X4 with insanely reliable updates. It is great.

    All my faith and $$ its for the Pixel 3. Android P looks promising and if they upgrade the camera, theres no other girl to see

    I really want the pixel 3 but I may invest first on the Google watch if it comes out... if not, I'm going straight to pixel 3 . who knows I might end up getting both.

    Pixel 3 is the front runner for me, but if the 3 XL has a mediocre screen like the 2 XL has then I may look elsewhere.

    Plenty of great phones on the market, Google needs to step it up this year.

    I just picked up the Mi Mix 2s. I might keep it for awhile and then get the Pixel 3 XL

    I am not sure if the next LG device is it, or something else. I see no need to upgrade from my V30 yet.

    I'm sticking with the Pixel's. I've gotten used to Pure Android and just can't go back to skinned Android, even if the specs (and camera) are awesome. I am hoping that the Pixel 3 XL will be, finally, the Pixel done right.

    I personally don't care much about makes or models, I just want the clutter free Android One experience, which I can skin freely. Nokia is really committed to this so it is pretty much what I would opt for... but only when it becomes available on the territory of the Great White North!

    I have the s8+. So I will probably just eventually get the Note 9. But I am in no rush.

    I'll patiently wait for the Note 10 as my main device. In the mean time I'll pickup the Essential Ph2 when it drops. Currently love my Essential Ph1 and Note 8

    Looking forward to "hopefully" a Razer 2. I currently use the Razer and really enjoying it. I will take a look at the next Note.

    What about the OnePlus 6? I just looked at the review and it seems pretty decent. I just don't know if they get the updates.
