    Just wondering what phone others are replacing. Mine is in bold below, but I've had a crazy past year leading up to this point.

    Over the last 12 months, I've owned (reverse chronological):

    Pixel 5a (returned after a week)
    OnePlus Nord N10 5G (current, bought in Hawaii as vacation replacement)
    Pixel 4a (drowned in Hawaii 4 months ago)
    Galaxy S20 FE (sold earlier this year after first 6 Pro leaks)
    Pixel 3a (water damaged charging port, repair too much $$)
    Pixel 2 XL (owned since it launched, drowned in Hawaii last October)

    I'm heading to Hawaii again a few days after my 6 Pro is due to be delivered. I plan to return with a dry and working Pixel this time.
    What an awesome collection you have! What kind of Huawei phone are you using now?

    Base on what I've been posting, not shocking...

    My Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3.

    Like I said it was basically a filler with Samsung not releasing the Note 21 Ultra.

    I've never been a fan of the Pixel, the first and only purchase was a mistake. Google finally listened and they got my attention!!!
    I love my Z Flip 3 but it's up for sale... I'm going to go with Pixel Pro and Fold 3 till next year...

    I was looking at a Z Flip 3 instead of the pixel 6 Pro, because I could have the same 6.7 inch screen, but with the folding form factor that would take up a lot less room in my pocket, and be more comfy to carry. I'm a pixel lover at heart tho, love pure Android, love the best updates in the business (now for 5 years), and was doubting how long a folding phone would last me vs a regular form factor pixel 6 Pro. I'll be keeping my next phone for a long time, and I'm just not sure a folding phone will last 4 or 5 years.

    Plus I'm not a fan of all the bloat on Sammy's devices

    pixel 4xl, but only because I made a mistake 2 years ago and went with the 64gb. I use too many applications for work and personal. 512 pixel 6 pro on order.

    Thanks! Current phone is a OnePlus Nord N10. I'll likely keep it as a back up.

    I almost picked up the Flip 3. But I'm a pixel guy at heart, don't like change, and I just know 5 years down the road my Flip wouldn't be "Flipping"

    I considered the Z Flip 3, but ended up going with the Pixel (as always).

    With the looks, features, and pricing it's hard not to go for the pixels

    Hi

    I am have been rocking the Note 10 plus for more than 2 yrs the longest I have ever been on a smartphone (period) and still going well.

    Just pre ordered the Google Pixel 6 Pro 256gb Stormy Black from EE. Also ordered the charging adapter 30w and green case from Google directly.

    EE is saying that it will be delivered after 28th October Launch day whenever that is hopefully earlier the better 🤞

    The adapter is coming on Oct 27 and the case on Nov 17

    hope this phone is worth all the hype and has the prowess to take on Samsung and Apple

    I'm in the same situation. I want to go for the Pixel 6 but would really like to be able to take full advantage of the camera on the pro model. Especially since it offers new hardware along with Google's software enhancements, it should be stellar. BUT...... I have a feeling in the long run I will end up with the Regular and not the pro. Pro is just too damn big for my hands

    P6 will be my back up phone. Will pop in the sim every now and then. Z flip 3 will still be my daily until the S22 Ultra comes out.

    Sounds like me. Z flip 3 main and 6 pro as side phone. Seems like it will be a good combo.

    I will finally be parting ways with the Pixel 4XL with the Pixel 6 Pro on order. Alas she served me well with a few kinks here and there like the time face unlock stopped working after an update and then miraculously came back two months later. Also not having a fingerprint sensor really blew while wearing a mask for over a year BUT the Pixel 4 XL stayed snappy and even now running Android 12 on it even seems snappier. I wanted to pass the 4XL down to my Daughter who currently has a 3a but with no fingerprint sensor she's not interested lol.

    I have One Plus 9 pro that i purchased to save me from a failing Pixel 4xl that kept randomly dying on me. I will keep my One Plus as a back up...a very good back up at that!

    Galaxy s21, plan in keeping it so I can use it to trade in for the s22. Samsung seems to always do killer trade deals with the previous years phone.

    I am really excited to try one ui 4 as well. I have generally been really happy with one ui.

    I am replacing my LG V60 with the 6....I'm starting to think it's not an upgrade at all. I'll give it a go and see, but I think I should have got the Pro.
    Guess time will tell
