>>45640306 I buy them used for cheap on craigslist and sell the previous model for some money back. I often get the new model during the time the rumor mills start getting new iPhone pictures from the factory.
If anything I spend around $100-300 per year to upgrade.
>>45640317 My parents are dead and the rest of my family hates me or molests me.
>>45640364 Okay, but I imagine a budget martphone like the one I'm thinking of probably already does everything pretty smoothly. I can't justify spending an additional 400$ for a barely noticable improvement.
>Started in 2005 or 6 or so: Nokia 3120 >Palm Centro >Pantech C300 (Pretty much the Zoolander phone. Really good phone, too.) >Motorola QA1 "Karma" (Piece of Shit) >LG Optimus V >Motorola Photon 4G (Another complete piece of shit, made me swear off of Moto forever.) >Nokia Lumia 820 (great phone, but WP got no appz) >Nexus 5 (great but battery and camera sucked) >iPhone 6
It's been a helluva ride, but my iPhone has surprised the shit out of me.
> LG something. It was one of the first color flip phones back in 2003. > RAZR phone ,about 2006 > LG Slide, about 2008, bought because previous phone was stolen > iPhone 3GS, 2010, bought because I was bored at work and wanted a smart phone and I liked my iPod Touch > iPhone 5, 2012, bought because previous phone was stolen > Samsung Galaxy Note 4, 2014, bought because fuck iPhone
>>45640306 iphones have longer sw support than any android will. yeah I know you can boot fucking lollerpop on a shit 2011 phone but thats all its going to do is boot. id never buy an iphone but i respect the build quality and LTS they have
I remember having to downgrade from my 3GS to a 3 when my 3GS was stolen, and even that slight downgrade couldn't do half the shit the 3GS could do. Basically, if iPhone is no longer producing the phone, it probably won't support many new updates. I'm not sure if iPhone 4 or 4s supports the new software, but it probably can't handle some videos and pictures and shit like that if they were sent from a newer smartphone.
>>45640845 my 4s can sure as shit handle everything it could the day I got it, no it doesnt support new hw features and shit but those are features I never planned to have when I bought it.
unless you're buying a nexus android your OEM will probably forget the shit out of you come next flagship, and since most android non-nexus variants have carrier specific changes, the updates will take even longer to land
>Nokia 6010, 2004-2005ish >Nokia 6030, 2005-2007ish >Sony Ericsson Z500, 2007 >Sony Ericsson Z525, 2007 >Sony Ericsson C905, 2007-2011 >Samsung Sunburst, 2011, POS lagged typing a text >Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, 2011-2012 >LG Nexus 4, 2012-2014 >LG G2, 2014 >LG Nexus 4 (again), 2014
I went through a few phones in early high school when family members upgraded on their contract. I would be using the G2 right now, but I recently dropped it and cracked the screen. I've been too lazy to repair it.
>Nokia 3530 (2002): mom finally lets me get a phone, mostly cause she's overprotective and wants to call me wherever I am >LG G4015 I think... won it in a bet, my Nokia was probably four years old at this point >Razr with a fucking dragon on it. Free from T-Mobile, felt like getting a Razr finally >iPhone 3G: I actually paid for a phone for the first and only time in my life and switched off my family's T-Mobile plan
Then I got a new position at my company and they took over my cell phone plan. I was already friends with IT so they always let me get the new model for free.99 whenever it drops (other people have to pay the upgrade fee, but we get free upgrades every two years per account).
>iPhone 4, 4S, 5, 5S
Now the new iPhone is out and it's fuckhuge and I don't like it. Seriously considering jumping ship to Android sometime, iTunes sucks anyway.
>Nokia 3330 Fucking loved that phone. All the cool kids had it or the 3310 at school.
>Some Motorola flip-bottom Only had it for a few months, was my first colour phone, got it from my Auntie
>Sony Ericsson T300 First camera phone, was one of the first people in my school to get one. People thought I was a God or something.
>Nokia 7600 Leaf-shaped phone. Looked cool as fuck. Really unique and obscure >Nokia 7650 Was really expensive. Mine was second hand and about a year old but still cost about $600. Insane when I think about it. But was a Christmas present so whatever lel.
>Motorola Krzr Like the Razr, only smaller and sleeker. Loved that phone. Was really well built.
>Motorola Droid/Milestone One of the first Android phones I think. This was a really good buy. Had a keyboard, touchscreen, everything. I remember showing it to my friends who had bought the first iPhones and they couldn't believe how superior it was in basically every way. I was playing SNES games on my phone in 2008 or 2009. Had this for about 4 years. Still works perfectly. >Sony Ericsson S Lt26ii Current phone. Had it 3 years now and it's just starting to slow down and the battery is now running out fast so I need to upgrade soon.
Samsung SGH T619 (Washed, still works) - 2 years owned Verizon Razzle (Washed, still works) - 1 year Motorola Droid 2 Global (Washed, still works) - 2 years HTC Incredible 2 (Dropped in pond, still works, though can't get calls) - 1/2 year iPhone 4S (Dropped in pool, dead) - 3 years HTC One M8 (Current) - 1/2 year
Every phone I have owned except my current has been exposed to a lot of water.
