Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
0: Requires special software to manage pictures and music. I should be able to plug a cable into my computer and access my stuff and use explorer.
1: No microSD slot.
2: Cost more than a car payment!
One more that I don't know exactly how to express, is the hang-up behavior during call waiting. My current phone does not let me hang up on an individual call...it's all or nothing. This means that occasionally I get interrupted by a robo-call but can't hang up without losing the first call. This issue might actually be a carrier issue...not sure. So I guess you're getting the S9?
No, Samsung is loading to much bloat on their phones, or at least used to. I haven't even looked at Samsung to be honest.
There's price too. But that's not a deal breaker for me, though I do buy the cheaper one of two equalish phones.
It has to fold in half and fit in my shirt pocket.

I went with cheap, and this seems to be a good deal: https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Galaxy-Prime-T-Mobile-Black/dp/B0723HG3FG/ref=sr_1_5?rps=1&ie=UTF8&qid=1528513742&sr=8-5&keywords=T-mobile+Samsung+Galaxy+j3+Prime&dpID=41gJlV0wJSL&preST=_SX300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch
Samsung Galaxy J3 Prime T-Mobile (Black) for 139.99. May not be exactly what you are looking for, but the price is right, and if you drop this one, you will not be out so much money. So far working well for me.
Dropped my phone on a stone floor the other day, so I need to get a new one.
Get a Google Pixel 2 XL just like I did, you know you want too.
It doesn't have 1 and I have no faarrrkkkking idea what number 3 is.
Just buy it.
I have to go now and up vote your post, I think you are the only person on this site who can spell faarrrkkkk.

I'm currently using a 64gb Xiaomi MiA1. I would buy it again.
My deal breaker is actually community support. I have perfectly good phones that I had to put in the electronics' closet because of obsolete OS versions.
Pros: Android One and a good community support (i.e. custom ROMs when the devices will be unsupported by the manufacturer), cheap (less than 200 EUR), plenty of storage, high audio volume, dual sim/microsd support, headphone jack, bright screen of the right size, battery lasting a couple of days with normal usage (no social network apps). The IR transmitter is also cool (I use it for the projector and air conditioning at the office... coworkers tend to hide their remotes!).
Cons: A bit subpar camera in low light, but there are software fixes for that (GCam thread on XDA). Some carriers with exotic 4G bands are not supported (worth a check before buying). As it's a Chinese phone, there is no manufacturer-provided warranty. USB-C connector so good charging cables are a bit on the expensive side. No user-replaceable battery (but still can be replaced by cheap repair shops).

The name of the phone starts with "i".
The brand of the phone is named after a fruit.
It's currently the most expensive phone on the market, yet it's inferior to cheaper phones.
It comes with iTunes or other malware pre-installed.
Any input or output doesn't adhere to standards such as USB so that you have to buy really expensive proprietary cables (for a phone that is already the most expensive on the market).
It doesn't even have a headphone jack.
It's not new.
I'm really not into second hand stuff.
Things will break sooner or later and when something's already been used chances are it will be sooner rather than later
I've had two Samsung Galaxies now and I'm satisfied with them so my next one will probably be a Galaxy as well (maybe not the newest, but not the cheapest/oldest either)
A part of me just wants a device that is a mobile phone. Doesn't even need an OS or a screen. Give me something with buttons to dial. OK, texting would be an extra, but not necessary - that's what email is for, or just call me. I don't even care if it records messages. If I'm not answering, don't leave a message, I don't care. But in particular, I don't really need all that extra crap - camera, games, FB, LI, etc. It's all fluff that I consumes my time, which, granted, I am in control of and allow it to consume. There's a thing - I really should engage the will forces and change my phone habits. Anyone know of a 12 step program?
I just received my copy of The Imposter’s Handbook by Rob Conery[^] so I can pretend to be a real programmer and I've immediately fallen in love with an aspect I've never missed before: It has syntax coloured code samples. In print.
I've probably been living under a metaphorical rock because I tend to get my tech content online ('natch) so it's been a while since I've bought something printed on pulped woodchips.
