I've used iPhones for about the last 8 years, and I'm fucking tired of them and won't be upgrading to the newest one. I've never shopped for or extensively used an Android, so I don't know what to really look for (besides avoid the Note 7 bc I don't want to spontaneously combust). Any recommendations? I don't want one of those phablet phones because i don't wear JNCO jeans

My only drawback is that my entire family has iPhones, and they exclusively use FaceTime to video chat (especially my younger brother with my 2 year old nephew). Convincing and teaching them how to signup for Skype is going to be a pain. I'm assuming there aren't any Android apps out there that can connect to FaceTime

It's on the bigger side but I'm a fan of my Nexus 6.

The secret is to skewer current events in a sardonic and irreverent manner

I've read good things about this. I'm assuming the price could drop a little now that Google has announced their new phones

I would assume the same. It's held up the best over a two year period than any of my previous phones (Galaxy models).

I'm thinking of ditching AT&T and trying Google Fi when my contract runs out this December.

Yeah I'm ditching Verizon when mine is up at the end of the year. Thinking of trying Cricket, but haven't looked into Google Fi

how do you think these models will fair once the new Pixel phones are released into the wild? will they lose support? are they old enough now that they aren't worth looking into as a new phone?

They'll only be one generation behind, so they won't be dinosaurs yet. And The Nexus 6 is still scheduled to be one of the first phones to get the next big Android update. So I wouldn't worry about that. I don't plan on ditching my Nexus 6 until something physically breaks on it, and everything is working fine now.

Also, a friend of mine picked up a Nexus 6 over the summer and he's been very happy with it as a "new" phone.

I have an S7 Edge but the Edge thing is kinda dumb so the regular S7 would work fine.
