• Do you like the Pixel 8 Pro? I’m waiting to see what the Pixel 8a looks like. I don’t expect a lot from my phone so I don’t need a flagship, but I do value long term security updates and the 8 series has 7 years of updates.

      I think the 8a, if it’s similar to the 8, might be a better size. But, I’m also fairly sure be fine with any of them.

      • My current phone is about the 8 Pro size, and I think it’s a bit too big. The 8 might be good enough, but yeah, I’d like to see what the 8a looks like before deciding.

          • Chances are, I’ll replace the phone within 7 years, but I’ve run past the end of updates on almost every phone I’ve had so far, so longer is better. In fact, that’s why I’m looking to replace my current phone, I’m happy with how it works, just not happy with a lack of security updates.

              @sugar_in_your_tea Same here… Until now, I’ve pretty much used each phone until the batteries died or the phones stopped receiving updates. My current phone, “OnePlus 9 Pro,” is different, though, because I’m considering replacing the battery when it goes and using the phone long after updates have stopped. Having no security updates doesn’t really bother me because I don’t actually use my phone all that much, and whenever I do, I’m pretty careful anyway.
