@Alexs20 Sorry to hear about your experience with Samsung! My friend swears by the Pixel phones, but I am too entrenched (and have only had positive outcomes) with Samsung's UI experience, functionality, and added features to switch.
Got the Samsung Galaxy A14 5g days ago but after activating the "Adaptive Refresh rate" which should switch your screen refresh rate from 60 to 90 hz, vice versa, the phone gets so laggy when using many apps (of course not the homescreen or "one ui home app") but you would even notice stutters when pulling down the quick panel above notification panel (sometimes). I restarted it, cleaned caches and did some other stuff, but it didn't fix it. But if the phone can handle 90hz (which is known for smoothness), does it really make sense that enabling standard mode instead of adaptive refresh rate gives you a way more smooth experience of the UI ?
