I got an LG G2 in Jan – by Oct it was unusable. I got an LG G4 in Jan – it’s approaching unusable.

    I would suggest a One Plus One. Not part of any evil empire and as close to stock Android unless you go for an actual Google Phone. Great reviews.

    The ones paid for by work have a pretty limited set available. If I pay for one, I would definitely go One Plus Three (or whatever at the time.)

    Depending on your choices, I am currently using a Samsung Galaxy S6. It’s been good, except for battery life, which is just ok.

    One Plus One has been very good for me. I don’t feel any need to upgrade but would readily stay with One Plus if I were to get a new one.

    I thought 4.7 was as large as I would ever want to go but I’m loving the 5.1 of this Samsung. You really get used to it. It doesn’t feel overly big at all. But yes the screen size race has gotten out of hand.

    I have had a g3 since they came out, and have just given the upgrade phones to my wife as I am not letting go of it.

    I have a G2 that I’ve had all this time too, Gareth. I only upgrade when I absolutely have to, and I’ve never had a problem with mine. Lucky, I guess.

    My System UI keeps crashing. Factory reset has not fixed this. I had weird problems with the G2 that ended up with me sending it to the repair facility twice. I begged them to send me a refurb and just take that back (not even a new one) and they wouldn’t do it. So they took my phone, refurbed it and sent it back but with me not having it for a month. I knew their customer service was dodgy but I had limited options of free phones that work will provide. I may have to start paying for these damn things.

    Some kinds of phone problems will preclude them giving you back the same phone. It would be most unfortunate if some sort of severe physical damage were to occur to the phone.
