Yea, I've been on Nexus since the 4, if the Nexus 6P I own didn't have battery issues I probably wouldn't be looking to upgrade. The Pixel 3 devices were the obvious answer but all reports system stability is a complete shit-show this generation and I wanted to avoid the stupidity of USB headphones. That said, since returning the s10 I stumbled upon a Pixel 2 XL deal for ~1/3 the cost of the S10, hasn't shipped yet but for saving 800 CAD I'll deal with the idiocy of dongles.bro, brackets [ this ] not < that >
I totally agree about 3rd party crap. It's why I bought the Nexus in the first place. I'd have traded up for a Pixel by now, but a focus on cameras aren't worth the huge price tag to me. My Nexus is in perfect condition because I don't break my things. Stock Android is very nice.
I don't think the hardware is great, at least from my experience the in screen fingerprint reader was poor and around half the time I had to login with a PIN. I also found that holding the s10 tended to trigger phantom touches on the sides of the device because of the lack of bezels, maybe would have been solved with a case /shrug. I'm not sure if its a "me" thing but I also found the size and aspect ratio of the display caused it to feel cramped, it felt too narrow in portrait and not tall enough in landscape.Sorry it sucked so bad for you. The S10 is a sweet phone hardware wise.
