Tell me all your thoughts...cell phone addition

article image placeholderUploaded by @JCB07
Hey, swell. I wanted some thoughts on phones. I know that we spend so much time on our phones now and I always worry about my phone breaking and having to upgrade and I know the cost is so expensive these days with newer phones. So I guess my question is or my idea is do you feel that getting a refurbished phone or borrowing a phone from someone else who has an older model that isn't using it anymore?

I'm a new phone kind of girl!

I'm that brand new phone type of girl. I have to have a new phone. But with that said, I'm not getting a new phone every year. I am like getting a phone every three years. That's usually where I like to go. Traditionally, I've been an Android user. I've had an iPhone, but that was for work. So I have an Android phone as my daily driver and then an iPhone for work. But for my own use, I prefer Android

@JCB07 😁

If you want to not pay a lot of money for phones and not have to upgrade so often, she has convinced me I should get the newest phone that's available even though I might have to pay some money down and therefore I can have it longer. So I'll probably get this 13 Pro Max or whatever it is. But I generally want to pay the cheapest amount I can for a phone. It's just a phone. It's a toy, right?

for me, value > status 📱

In fact, I am recording this on my current iPhone Six S Plus, which I bought five years ago in 2017 when the iPhone ten was brand new. And in fact, I bought it from a Reseller, refurbished and perfectly happy with it in all this time. I understand five years is an extraordinary long time to keep a phone. I have had to replace the battery once and the camera once
