@AlanRalph Same here. I became even more disillusioned with Android because I was using a Pixel 2 -- the literal flagship Google phone at the time I got it -- and the inferior quality when compared to my previous device, an iPhone 5S, was startling.
I am now also very happy with my SE. My Pixel contract is about to finish but I found the SE last month and have been using it as basically an iPod, it's just that good. Thankfully I can now move to a sim-only contract and make the SE my only phone, all whilst saving a nice bit of money!
