    2010-2013: HTC Diamond. My first phone, it had Windows Mobile. I had to switch because it was very outdated.
    2013-2015: Samsung Galaxy Ace 2. Horribly slow with Android 4.1. The screen cracked.
    2015-2016: Samsung Galaxy S4. Fast, but horrible battery life with 5.0. I couldn't use it more, because it was way too hot, didn't had a good battery life and it was very damaged.
    2016-2018: Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. It was the best one that i had, a "good" battery life, but the sim slot broke, like the screen. Fixing it was like 250€, and i didn't fixed it.
    2018-Present: iPhone 6s. I like it, but it is also very hot and it doesn't have a very good battery life (at least, for me.) This is a replacement phone, so i'm not stranged.

    2007 - 2011 - Nokia 6030 - oldie but goldie.
    2011 - 2016 - iPhone 4S - the best one I had in my life, most definitely.
    2016 - 2017 - Microsoft Lumia 550 - this one turned out to be the worst, most definitely.
    2017 - present - iPhone 8 - not really as happy as I was when I used 4s but way better than Lumia, that's for sure.

    2009 - 2011: Samsung E620 (It worked, best thing I could say about it. In the end it got stolen for some reason and then I upgraded to the next phone)

    2011 - 2013: Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini (Changed due to becoming outdated since youtube stopped working and Android market not working)

    2013 - 2017: Google Nexus 4 (Loved that phone, had to change because college needed an app that didn't allow root and without root was too outdated)

    2017 - 2018: Nokia 6 (Just couldn't get along with that phone and I didn't like how dead the community around the phone already was)

    2018 - : Google Pixel XL (Love this phone and honestly have no issues with it. I will probably keep this until it gets too outdated then I guess I will buy a newer pixel :D)

    Nokia 1650 - Great phone
    Nokia 5130 XpressMusic - Loved it
    Nokia 500 - wasn't anything special and died one day(me connecting chargers to all 3 ports may have had something to do with this)
    Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 - SAMSUNG NEVER AGAIN.*
    Sony Xperia Z3 Compact - Really good phone, but I pushed it too far one summer day and the front panel started coming off. Ran fine, but was really annoying.
    Sony Xperia XZ - The replacement for the Z3. I love everything about it, except battery life(altho, I am using it constantly for stupid stuff at stupid high brightness because it's hard to see outside)

    So, why would an 18 year old never buy anything which has "Samsung" on it?

    Because that Ace 2 FUCKING SUCKED, also because the Samsung TV at home broke the neck of its stand after 9 years of usage(just sitting in one place), same TV won't play any other format than .avi and because their Printers are just as bad as their phones.
    What problems did I encounter with the Ace 2?
    Let's see what Samsung claims its chracteristics are - "Powerful Dual-Core 800MHz CPU"," 4GB Memory", "768MB RAM".

    Let's start with the Memory. So, 4GB. But only 50% is usable. Fine, Android can have it, as with all devices, not all is available to you. But where it gets interesting is partitioning...
    So, Samsung left you 2GB of storage, but they also decided to split it into 2 parts, 1.2 and 1.1 GB, and from those 2 parts, apps are only able to be installed in one of them. Not only that, but even when you reset the phone, both are 40% full. So from those "4GB Memory", you can only use 500-600MB... GREAT.

    Let's move on to RAM - So, 768MB... Where is it? Because when I open the memory viewer, there are a maximum of 555MB... Of which 35-40% is used no matter what you do to try and limit it.

    Now, the CPU - Oh, that slow as fk NovaThor U8500... It booted 180 seconds minimum(fresh reset)... Fine, it's a budget phone, you can't expect much of it... 2.3.6 GingerBread was alredy pushing it quite hard, but Samsung didn't think so... Oh no no no, they released an official "upgrade" to 4.1.2 JellyBean.
    Remember the 555MB RAM? Well, say goodbye to that... You only get 486MB RAM(visible to you).
    Remember the memory size? Yeah, now 60% is full even after reset.

    That "upgrade" made the phone unusable.

    It was so bad, that the TouchWiz launcher disappeared from so many resets - if you didn't install a launcher when you are prompted to sign into GooglePlay, then you are screwed, black screen for you.
    But even if you got it running(more like crawling), it would restart itself every second unlocking

    So, what did I do? Well, my Z3 went to the shop I bought it from because of the aforementioned "ungluing" of the front panel and so I was stuck with that PoS Samsung. So I gave it to a good friend of mine to put some OC-able ROM on it.
    When I got it back, it was a bit better, especially with the U8500 now running at 1.2GHz. One small drawback was that the battery could only power it for 1 hour, maybe 2 of active use.

    And so, what happened next? Well, I had this very important homework that I forgot at home, but thankfully the teacher let me do it in class. My classmates had uploaded it to Facebook, so it was just a case of opening Facebook and going through a few messages in Messenger. Guess what the Ace 2 decided to do...
    Restart, restart, restart aaaannnddd - restart, 4 times!!! At which point because I was about to get a 2 (2 = F, 6 = A) and be left in the same class I got quite frustrated and threw the fucking shit on the floor - with force. Which resulted in the chassis breaking some more and the home button getting lost.

    At which point, a classmate lent me his phone which worked perfectly fine, so I was able to get the homework done and didn't get a 2(an F).

    FUCK THAT PHONE!

    (2AM here, sorry for bad english :D)

    Lots of features lots of functionalities , amazing hardware
    BUT bad quality and lots of bugs. The camera crashes at the most crucial times and now my power button and volume buttons do not work basically because the flexcable from these buttons has cracked. So now my phone is like that character from the movie CRANK(Jason Statham) if it runs out of juice its dead .... for good.

    My first phone was Nokia C1-01, and my first smartphone was Nokia Lumia 620. After that Lumia i got a Sony Xperia E4G, because that Lumia had bad performance and almost no apps (cuz Windows Phone 8.1) And i was very happy with my Xperia. After 1,5 years my Xperia battery started doing weird stuff, like losing charge in 2 minutes after it got under 50% charge, but getting from 100% to 50% took more like 1 hour (but the phone was starting to be really sluggish at that point and i wanted a new phone anyway) Then i got my current phone, Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) and its propably the best phone that i ever had.

    After that for some reason i bought some old phones (idk why tho XD) and they are: Nokia N86, Nokia N8 and Siemens A55

    2010-2013 Samsung B2100 (aka "The Brick")
    2013-2015 Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro
    2015-2016 Sony Z1 Compact (I drowned that one :( )
    2016-2016 my Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro (again)
    2016-2017 Sony Z1 Compact
    2017-now Sony XZ Premium

    The Xperia Pro was just awesome and stood strong against the curse of time until the storage got too small.
    The Z1 Compact was also a very good phone, I just ruined my experience with it by destroying one and having to settle with my old trusty phone until I got a cheap new one.
    I'm really happy with my XZ Premium, the only real issues I'm having with it is that the glass is extremely weak against scratches and that the plastic sides already lose their paint, but I can't really see myself buying another phone when looking at newer phones today. I might replace the glass and sides to refurbish it so I can keep on using it

    1st: HTC Wildfire S ... super duper small, so small it fitted in the palm of my hand. Texting was a nightmare. Also used to be my uncle's, but before that, it was my dad's.

    2nd: Apple iPhone 6 ... used to be my mum's. It was silver and 16GB wasn't enough. It also bent ever so slightly. It is now my grandad's.

    3rd: Apple iPhone 6s ... used to be my dad's. It was also silver but thankfully had 64GB. It is now my mum's.

    Current: Apple iPhone 8 ... finally not a hand-me-down phone. It's black and has 64GB :D. I've jailbroken it on iOS 11.4 Beta 3.
