Just got me a Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016) to replace my crappy old Galaxy Trend.

Must say a very good phone for the price if you don't need the fanciest features and most powerful hardware.

PS: got an update to Android Marshmallow too, no need to stick to Lollipop

Things happened and I now have Honor 8 (it replaced my Honor 6 - it will replace my dad's broken Lumia 920 which was actually my phone).

First impression is that it feels rather nice in hand. I'm just about to power it up.

EDIT:
I'll install nougat tomorrow...

Edit:
Done. EMUI5 has some nice things now like app drawer. As a phone this feels great in hand and camera is nice too. Build quality is fantastic. Glass back makes this slippery.

I quite like the battery life on Honor 8. Just got 7h 30 min SOT out of this and there were still 6 % left. That was without WLAN, only 4G data.

^I had an Honor 5X and it had fantastic battery life.^ Partly due to their assistant constantly wanting to turn apps off. I had a love/hate affair with Huawei's EMUI. It never liked my smartwatch (No NFC). Lost it on a weekend trip.

Lately, I've been buying Motorola. Last year, I got my daughter her 1st phone, a Moto G (2nd gen) and it was a good, solid build. It reminded me of why I liked Motorola's devices in the flip phone era. I got my girlfriend a Moto X Pure(Style) and then got myself the same thing when I lost the Honor.

I really like how vanilla the android is on a Motorola phone. (non carrier versions) Much like getting a Nexus (or Pixel, I guess).

I just got my daughter a Moto Z Play which can add the MotoMods external, magnetic devices to the back. Camera, battery pack, projector, speaker, and more to come. The Motorola color customization is now done on the magnetic panels too. Wood, leather, whatever, can be easily swapped onto the back, which is glass when nothing is connected. The battery life is apparently phenomenal.

I love my "X" but after playing with her "Z" for a little bit, I kind of want one.
