I've never had a smartphone before, and now that my shitty phone finally broke down, I'll probably get a Moto G. I can see how it'll improve my daily life and I am looking forward to getting it.

What I want to know is, why would I even want a phone with monster specs that costs more than 600$ ? What does it offer that my future Moto G doesn't?

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.

My parents are dead and the rest of my family hates me or molests me.
Mitsu TVs are quite nice tbh

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.
So don't

I only get a new one when the phone is stolen and when it suffers battery/structural damage and getting it repaired is no longer cost-effective versus getting a new one.

Been waiting for a good deal on a smartphone but haven't seen anything impressive. Probably a case of not knowing what I'm missing.

It was an LG 5350. I used to chew on the pop-out antenna.
That shit is a fucking tank. The 3310 couldn't hold a candle to how tough that thing is.
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
>nokios r strong!!!
shouldn't you be on reddit
>longer sw support

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.

>changing your phone every year

>if iPhone
I meant to say Apple
They are though. Were you even in high school when those shit went out. I doubt. I was and we did all kinds of stupid shit with it.
As far as I'm aware that thing still works. It's in a drawer somewhere.
2006 - LG flip phone, forget the name of it. Could record video with it so I thought it was awesome.

2008 - LG ENV2, everyone in high school had this phone. It was a piece of shit that wore down extremely fast, front screen broke just from keeping it in my pocket.

2009 - Samsung Alias 2. Great phone, had magic buttons and worked great until the end. Only stopped using it cuz I wanted a smartphone.

2012 - Galaxy S3, great phone but lagged pretty badly towards the end. GPS wouldn't work sometimes too.

2014 - Galaxy Note 4, just got it a few days ago. In love with it, this thing is amazing. It's better than my laptop in a lot of ways.
Almost all bar phones during that era were durable.
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
It's a good thing you have the freedom to ignore your carrier and install whatever you wish then.
that depends on if your carrier isnt one of the 2 biggest carriers in the US, sadly.
But the 5510 was the most durable-est. The 5510 had thick as fuck plastic glass on top of its display as compared to the 3310 for example.

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.
sorry to hear about the G2. That was the best phone of 2013 imo
Yeah. I love it, but I also love the Nexus 4 just as much, so that's contributing to me not replacing the screen.

I wish it hadn't killed the digitizer on the bottom third, otherwise I'd probably just slap a new screen protector on and keep using it.

>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.

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.

I'm thinking Xperia Z3 or Z3 Compact.
>Sony Ericsson S

I meant Xperia S

I'll get higher res pics and label with names/networks later, this was just what I threw together on my tablet in MS Paint
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.
I just bought an s3 in perfect condition for $150 on ebay. What's the problem?

Z3 compact breh. Or wait for six months and see if the Z4 is a better buy.

>6-month product cycle
pick one
Samsung slider > Samsung Sidekick 4G> Galaxy Nexus > LG low end brick looking thing > HTC One M7
If the Z4 brings a 1440p screen then I'll be happy with the 3. This is the first time I'm saying moar pixelz is stupid past this point.

Every year is excessive. You can though buy it on 2 year contract, sell it for still quite a bit, and buy the next iPhone after 2 years and probably still make some money.
I'd hold for the Z5 personally. Hopefully by then the battery tech has already caught up or the phones themselves become more efficient
