Nope. I went the other way this time. I had a Galaxy Epic, Galaxy s3, Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy S8+...THIS time I decided I was done buying overpriced "flagship" phones, especially since my S8+ suffered from extreme screen burn, and bought a $250 LG Stylo 4. It's a little sluggish, but it gets the job done, the screen is large and I don't notice the difference in resolution. And, most importantly, I don't need to sell a kidney to buy one...and I don't need to lease or pay monthly.

Same here - I had an S8+, and I bought a Xiaomi Mi 8 - absolutely thrilled with it so far, great phone. Cost me 330 Euro for a Snapdragon 845, 6GB RAM, 64GB and AMOLED screen.

Rolled oled is a reality and in production.

Then why did LG go with that complex looking mechanical container? Where's the screen roll? Not here. I've been waiting for over a decade now

Samsung's already been working on it for awhile now. It won't be long before they release it. I'm guessing they just need a stable touch substrate that can roll w/the display and prevent creasing over time. Rollable OLED technology itself is far from a fantasy though.

^ the rollable pocket sized scrolls performed poorly during alpha/beta testing, causing breakout fights in cramped public transportation

I actually went back to iOS. Performance and privacy is simply better. Android is like the wild west of phones. If only the keyboard and browsers didn't suck so much.
