I'm still on my 6+ so it's about 2 and a half years old. Would still be on my HTC M8 had it not become possessed.

Curious to se how long fellow Gurus are keeping theirs.

Bought my Nexus 6 in December 2015 and still works great, although it's now EOL for OS updates, so anymore will be done unofficially.

Can't say I'm tempted to buy anything else.

Samsung S4 Mini. It's now more than 3 years old. It's annoyingly slow, the battery is nearly dead, and of course it hasn't got updates for ages.

Get a custom ROM flashed from XDA, no doubt much more updated and a lot less bloat / quicker than stock

iPhone6Plus, using for 2 years and 6 months now. Working fine so far.

It's my 1st iPhone, and I think snatched the best I could. HD resolution with nice specs.
Hope to keep it for at least 3 more years. Costly thing better work back its price.

Galaxy S4 Qualcomm variant from 2013. Still has a decent display(FHD1080P) for these days standards, better than a good bunch of brand new phones.
Running Super WizCyan custom ROM. Manages to reach 44K points on Antutu.

Nexus 4. I got it on sale in fall of 2013 when they were trying to clear them out as the Nexus 5 launched. It's on its way out however...

Galaxy S3 (I9300) International, it was released in May 2012 so it's 5 years old in a few days, although I didn't get mine until August 2013. It's really struggling now though (1GB Ram and poor battery).

I also use an Xperia U which was release Feb 2012, I don't remember when I got it but it must have been about a year before my S3.

I'm using the Xperia U at the moment as the S3 battery life is ruined, it has 512mb ram so it's unusable for anything other than calls/texts/whatsapp, I can't use Chrome or do any web browsing it's pretty awful. I've just ordered a new phone though.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 (SD) Global Edition w/ Band 20, it should come in a few weeks.
