Samsung SCH-R390

Also known as the Freeform 4. I used this extensively and enjoyed it at the time.

Samsung SCH-R480

Also known as the FreeForm 5. No significant changes from the FreeForm 4 beyond aesthetics.

LG UN280

Also known as the Freedom II. I used this extensively and enjoyed it at the time.

iPhone SE (2016)

I used this extensively and despise it.

Unihertz Titan

I used this extensively and despise it. Bad hardware keyboard (no dollar sign). Vendor unlawfully non-compliant with GPL 2 licensing on Linux, for this reason I would avoid this phone like the plague.

Pine64 Pinephone

I love this phone a lot. Hardware keyboard available as an extension; hardware keyboard also adds a second battery, tripling the battery life of the phone. Firmware is proprietary by default but the vendor allows using free firmware.

Punkt MP-02

Sucks.
