Back around... 2014, I think? I found a Canon S80 that had been discarded because it had a cracked screen. An ebay replacement was $15, I installed it myself after reading iFixit guides. Another elegant camera, takes superb pictures. Hopelessly outdated by today's standards.
I had S60?? i believe, cheaper version of that. It made at that time best point and shoot photos i've ever seen. Was only around HD but very sharp and nice colors. Best proof it was good that the photos from it still stand a test of time especially compared to phones.
Yes, I honestly like the older ones better. I have a big DSLR, but a little pocket camera is a lot more convenient sometimes. Also, older tech just makes me happy for some reason - I don't like how slick modern stuff is. And sometimes modern tech is bloated and clunky too.
